THE IDOLM@STER vs AKB48

So, I love idols. Mainly kpop idols, I’ll admit, but I’m also a huge AKB48 fan. If you’ve been living under a rock, you should know that AKB48, Arashi and EXILE are the golden trio of the Japanese music industry right now. Everything they put out tops the chart, AKB’s last single sold over one million (physical) copies in two days. They are everywhere.
And so naturally, as I watch my idol anime (THE IDOLM@STER and Uta no Prince-sama, although the latter is irrelevant here) I can’t help but compare it to AKB. Or rather, as I watch IDOLM@STER, I end up comparing the 765 idols to the AKS girls. Of course, the anime girls feel a bit flatter and less interesting than the AKS girls, but yanno, the AKS girls are real and all.
So, here are my comparisons of the IDOLM@STER girls and the AKB girls they are most similar to.

Takajo Aki / Amami Haruka / Takahashi Minami

Harurun is sort of the ‘main girl’. She’s mad clumsy, but tries hard, and always has remains smiling and positive. She’s a hard worker and earnest about what she does.
Green-cha, Barley-cha, Oolong-cha, but of course? Aki-cha!
To be honest, to me that screams ‘Akicha’! Akicha is always, always smiling, on variety, during photoshoots, in the theater, in concerts. She just looks so goddamn pleased to be there, in AKB, doing whatever. She was also the fastest girl in AKB history to be promoted from kenkyuusei to full AKB member, which proves her talent and hard work! (oh, the exclamation marks. I’m super passionate about AKB, you’ll quickly learn.)
I may look a bit yankee but inside I have a glass heart.
Takamina is the extremely short leader of Team A, and of AKB48 as a whole. She one of the hardest working members, and absolutely loves AKB with all her heart. She’s also the favourite of AKB manager/producer Aki-P. She’s a bit of a tomboy, and rougher and clumsier than many of the girlier AKB members, earning her the nickname ‘Takaboy’.

Blah blah blah~

So, today, I am NEET… However tomorrow I shall be EET! Photobucket
I am torn between the fact that I am going to be so busy this next while, versus my extreme desire to get all my uploading done by October. Well, we’ll see!

Here’s something very adorable – AKB and Momusu duet!



Momusu perform much better than AKB48, but I hear AKB48 were onstage for a lot longer, so it’s understandable. I do feel bad for AKB though, it’s a little like Momusu feat. AKB. The AKB girls could have smiled a little. I know Acchan and Mayu both have images like that, but… Photobucket Oh well, Tomomi smiled all the way, that’s why she’s my fave. Yoko was cute too, her exchange with Ai, are they friends offstage?
Junjun, Linlin and Eri solo was so nice! So sad they’re graduating, especially Linlin. I love her energy. My Momusu bias is always Reina though. I just automatically follow her around the stage.
