Throwing off my count immediately ;P  
Good news!

My kumi is full of big, humongous dorks.

Of all the things, Dai-chan. OF ALL THE THINGS. A Crayon Shin-chan impersonation?! Prefaced by, "kumichou-san told me never to do this", AND THEN SHE DOES IT. XDDDDDDDD (Yuuhi's follow-up "Masako impersonation", and Masako's Crayon Shin-chan Fail are also great. But mostly DAI-CHAN ♥ ♥ ♥ I am dying of the love ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ And Juri-pyon falls on the floor laughing at Masako ♥ ♥ ♥)

Manda and I discussed the GOGO5 batsu-games once, and how they always seem to conveniently fall on the underclassmen / non-top people. I like how this time it falls on Yuuhi and she STILL instantly goes "no, *they're* doing the batsu-game." XDD;;;

Before, in the talk portion, it seems to have been a "make fun of Masako"-fest as far as I can tell. ;D And Masako deserves it for being so ridiculously over-shy and polite while at the same time towering over everyone else. XDDDD (There is also evidence that Dai-chan, who has even said herself that she jokes around too much, was bantering with / being teased by Yuuhi in under a week of rehearsals. ;P)

Edit: Oh god, the "what role would you like to see Yuuhi play" bit immediately turns into "with Masako as her partner". Yuuhi!Carmen and Masako!Jose or Yuuhi!Rudolph and Masako!Marie Vetsera... WHICH IS FUNNIER, I HAVE NO IDEA.

Juri-pyon, you are my hero, forever ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Here's the four of them singing Arashi's "Everything".

Love. Lovelovelovelovelove. (I think I need to stop rewatching these over and over or I may hurt myself laughing.)

Other good news!

I finished letters (finally >.>;;;) to Kari-chan and KAI-CHAN.

Not-so-fun news:

Also wrote my letter to Yuna-chan. T_____T;;

Ahaha, I saw these the other day and was so happy.
Becca: Toki Irisu muffin_song on September 11th, 2009 05:38 pm (UTC)
I saw that. Yuuhi's Masako impression made me crack up because it was so spot on XD

(Poor girl...I think her Boxman role made a permanent impression! XD)
Julie: alice katherine shoulderswao_wao on September 12th, 2009 12:00 am (UTC)
AUGH. People who are like "I saw this a few days ago"! Please understand, I almost never check Nico / YouTube for Zuka, and would appreciate it if people alerted me to these things... T_____T;;;

(Re: Masako, she brings it on herself. :P)

Yes, this. These days I sort of at least do a fairly regular Hoshigumi check, but would never catch things like this. And then I would spend an entire afternoon watching Juri do her Masako!Marie impersonation, and then my life would be lacking.
ceteranna: appa flyingceteranna on September 11th, 2009 06:04 pm (UTC)
Oh my god, Masako. XD ♥♥♥ So much adorable fail.

It also will never stop cracking me up how tiny and breakable Yuuhi looks next to pretty much all the up-and-coming SoraGiants.
Beth Winter: emote - boredbwinter on September 11th, 2009 06:26 pm (UTC)
That was my impression too :) But it looks like the only danger is that they'll make her laugh so much she won't be able to stand.
ceteranna: tangoceteranna on September 12th, 2009 03:45 am (UTC)
Oh, and Yuuhi!Carmen x Masako!Jose?? HELL YES. I don't even think it would be that hilarious, honestly. Just hawt.
Julie: alice dorothy naughtywao_wao on September 12th, 2009 12:38 pm (UTC)
I don't know, I'm having a hard time imagining Yuuhi!Carmen. Actually it's hard for me to imagine anything besides Yuuhi's Florence. I shall have to give this some deep thought.

Masako!Jose, on the other hand, I can immediately see for some reason ♥ ♥ ♥

Ohmygosh. That totally made my day XDD Masako and Dai-chan are so cute! I love how Juri-pyon totally died at the end of that Shin-chan bit XD (I also like her hair <3) And Yuuhi ^___^

Incoherent comment is incoherent because I'm still giggling even as I type this~
poggie92: hilaritypoggie92 on September 11th, 2009 10:15 pm (UTC)
I love how Yuuhi is wearing one earring...like a pirate ^^
Julie: wao hehewao_wao on September 12th, 2009 12:35 pm (UTC)
Ahahaha I saw the one earring and assumed there was one in the other ear as well... But you're right XDDDD
Sskyinhim on September 11th, 2009 11:09 pm (UTC)
Same here, I've been watching those clips over 50 times in the past days

I luv the part where Yuuhi and Juri claimed Dai-chan as Gin-chan XDDDD All the slow-motion and the camera-driven performance style XDDD

I vote for Yuuhi!Rodulf and Masako!Marie looooooool Can't wait to see it XDD

Speaking of Carmen, well, actually I see Dai-chan as Jose! The most adorable Jose =D Yummy Yummy

The batsu-game is wayyyyy to funny. After heard Masako will impersonate Shin-chan, Yuuhi was like, "U sure? Okay. Do it!"

Thank you, you have just given me my new happy place. ♥ ♥ ♥

I so want to see Yuuhi!Rudolph having Masako!Marie Vetsera on her lap, that would be the most hilarious picture ever!! XD

Also, Dai-chan! She's trying so hard with the Arashi song but looks so...concentrated? Scared? ^^;
Julie: dai-chan larry thumbsupwao_wao on September 12th, 2009 12:33 pm (UTC)
She's concentrating hard because she knows she can't sing as well as the rest of them ;P
Ms. Britt: [dai-chan3]ladybretagne on September 18th, 2009 05:06 pm (UTC)
*giggles at her poor marginally tone deaf baby* The scary and adorable thing is that she's gotten so much better lately too.

"a "make fun of Masako""

It's so cute that they always choose the strongest otokoyakus to play this game !
Some years ago they played a lot to a "make fun of Chie"in all skystage program ! ( but they still do it with Chie as a top ^^;;;;;;;;;;;)
by the way, I may missed something but who is : "Crayon Shin-chan" ?
Julie: eriko alec dorkywao_wao on September 14th, 2009 01:09 pm (UTC)
Crayon Shin-chan is a very silly anime. :)
Ms. Britt: [dai-chan2]ladybretagne on September 18th, 2009 05:12 pm (UTC)
Okay so I just now finally got a chance to watch this and OH MY GOD SO MUCH LOVE.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Dai-chan Dai-chan Dai-chan Dai-chan DAI-CHAN! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

*coughs* Aside from that (and yes, shockingly enough I was occasionally watching people other than Dai-chan), Masako is just a big gigantic dorky pile of win. It also cracks me up how much of an absolutely giant she looks, because she's so tall anyway and then she's wearing slightly taller heels than Dai-chan is and she's all ready like three or four centimeters taller. Funny how Yuuhi always looked tall in Tsukigumi and looks so tiny in Soragumi. *hearts our adorable troupe full of giants* Oh Masako, seriously she is just one of my favorite people in the world and I feel bad that I don't say it often enough.

Also man it's moments like this when I realise how long I've been in love with Dai-chan. I seriously kept thinking how grown up and like a real otokoyaku her speaking voice sounds all of a sudden (there was hardly one of her trademark squeaks!) and how much better her voice has gotten. *squishes Dai-chan* How I ended up with the totally less than musically inclined baby I will never understand.
Julie: dai-chan larry thumbsupwao_wao on September 18th, 2009 11:52 pm (UTC)
I don't actually think Dai-chan is tone-deaf or "less than musically inclined"! I was always under the impression that the otokoyaku range is totally not her range, and trying to push her voice down that low generally results in a lot of squeaking and breaking.

I was talking with a Japanese non-Sora fan once who said she liked the 88ths, and we discussed our favorites. "Definitely Chii-chan", she said, and when I said I liked Dai-chan, she was like "No way! Chii-chan's the best, isn't she? Dai-chan can't sing!" And I was like yes, well, maybe Chii-chan can sing, dance and act better, but...

...But, I like the ridiculous, squeaky, flaily one!! ^^;;; ♥
Ms. Brittladybretagne on September 19th, 2009 12:06 am (UTC)
No I definitely think you're right. She doesn't naturally have an otokoyaku range voice at all, so she's had to fight to get it lower and she loses the control she would have otherwise. She's gotten her speaking voice pretty steady now and her singing voice is getting better, but it's definitely something she's had to work at.

Hmm... I tend to think Mii-chan is the most objectively talented of the three of them. Dai's a fabulous dancer, just moreso in certain styles than others, but Chii-chan's just the best at otokoyakuing.

And still, the flaily adorable squeaky one always wins out.
Julie: chii-chan dancingwao_wao on September 19th, 2009 08:31 am (UTC)
...it's definitely something she's had to work at.

It definitely is. ^^;;;

And! Otokoyaku-ing -- that's what it is! Chii-chan is clearly the most criminally smexy of the three of them. ;) Whereas Dai-chan... she has these trademark moves that just make me laugh and love every time X3 ♥

Now you've got me thinking about this again, I really need to write out the thoughts I want to air about the 88ths...
Ms. Britt: [daixalice]ladybretagne on September 19th, 2009 05:33 pm (UTC)
See, and criminally sexy at a fairly young age is not really my type, lol. I'll take the ones who are deeply hysterical (hello, Shin-chan impression) and then have these probably unintentional moments of insane hotness that are totally unexpected.

There is a lot to say about the 88ths in general. There are some definite characters in that class. XD
