I guess you all have watched the video of the song by now and probably know what I think of it. And if you're a Sayaka fan, you're probably wondering the same I wonder... "Where are you, Sayaka?"
Ahhh, some people will never understand how it feels when your favorite isn't taken into consideration...

In case you don't know, Sayaka appears NOTHING in the PV, and my main complain about this is how pathetic from management is to involve us in an election promising 21 girls will feature the next single if they get the most votes. Don't know about you, but I feel cheated. They promised something they didn't really fulfill. Twenty-one senbatsu members to see only eight girls featuring the video and the other thirteen being their back dancers? I don't know if the managements realizes PonyShushu sold so many copies because of us, the fans who wanted to see their favorite member in the senbatsu group. Honestly, the election and Heavy Rotation are a disgrace. I'll probably be happy if they sell lots of copies (coz I'm always glad AKB sells well, being Sayaka a senbatsu or not), but I will still feel disappointed and cheated.
I bought copies of PonyShushu, I voted in the election, me and the other Sayaka fans made Sayaka a senbatsu, and what did we get? She is being treated as a back dancer.

Would have been better having Sayaka as an under girl again? I don't know. She was an UG in PonyShushu, and we didn't get enough of her in the video, either. And if she were chosen a TOP UG, we would be happy about it because she would appear a lot in the video, but how would she feel about being an UG? That would be pretty selfish from me, too.

Heavy Rotation has marked a new phase in my AKB fandom. For better? I don't think so. I don't intend to leave the fandom, but this just made me a less AKB fan and a more Sayaka fan.

As for Sae, there is no need to worry, she gets a fair amount of time so there is no need to worry. Discrimination didn't reach her this time and she didn't make any gross scene.

If you are not a SaeYaka fan, if you like fan service, girls with cat ears (God knows I hate cats), cheap double-entendre images and free pointless lesbian action, Heavy Rotation is the PV for you. If you don't like this, you can sit next to me and wait for the next single to be released in October 27.

"Where's Wally? I mean, Sayaka..."

  1. A mi se me hace un intento super Kitsch de “queremos ponerlas menos cute y más sexosas pero no lo logramos porque no nos atrevimos”. Salir vestidas de gatitas hubiera podido ser interesante sin el escenario de colores sacado directamente de un programa de concurso barato, y bueno con sus pseudo besos que la neta ni fueron eróticos ni nada…es más es increible que saliendo vestidas de gatitas casí en neglillé no se veían sexys...definitivamente no me gustó, tendré que esperar a ver si el próximo single es algo decente...

  2. Just for begin, I really like your job. With your blog I can get more informations about my two loves Sayaka and Sae. I agree with what you said about this new PV, we can't see Sayaka only because she is not in the top 10 ? That's so stupid ! But on the other hand it's good because she doesn't appear in this crappy and vulgar PV that I hate so much ! I hope that we'll see Sayaka again in the future PV !!

    PS: Could you just tell me where is Sayaka in Ponytail to Shushu's PV, I don't see her ^^' !

  3. Denzuki: I'm glad you enjoy this blog =) And glad you share my opinion, hehe.

    Ah, you couldn't see Sayaka in Ponytail because she wasn't chosen as a senbatsu for that song D:
    Sayaka was an 'undergirl' and she sang in the B-side, Nusumareta Kuchibiru (she appears in the video, but like... 2 seconds only :s)
