AND ANOTHER THING--!  
And another thing!

I hate how the Hoshigumi tops are the ideal couple, and every other top otokoyaku is more than 5 years older than her partner!

Remember this?

Chie (1999) - Nene (2003) = 4 years

Kimu (1998) - Ayucchi (2005) = 7 years
Kimu (1998) - Mimi (2007) = 9 years
Kimu (1998) - Ami (2010) = 12 years

Kiriyan (1994) - Marimo (2004) = 10 years

Matobun (1995) - Ran-chan (2006) = 11 years

Yuuhi (1992) - Sumika (2005) = 13 years

And another thing!

I wish I could just leave fandom, because it would be easier -- and then people wouldn't have to listen to my negative crap anymore. T______T

Is there a "vote me off the island" option? Do people want to use it?

And another thing.

I swear, I'm of half a mind to start a Yumeka Ami Fan Club just because the company's stupid actions make me want to protect her more than ever.

I'm writing her an encouraging letter, right now.

I completely agree about the age dynamic and I definitely think Ami-chan needs a fan club, I worry about all the things she'd miss by becoming top so soon.

And another thing!
Please don't leave the island!

Ahaha actually when I think about it I'm "leaving the island" anyway, since I'm leaving Japan in a month and a half. >.>;;

Yes... well... Don't leave the metaphorical island just yet, please?

Oh, goodness, those numbers...

(For the record, I would selfishly vote to keep you on the island, because I would miss you.)

*Smooch* Don't be silly, we love having you in the fandom. Trust me, we totally understand how you feel!

Unfortunately I happen to like you :P

I like the idea of writing Ami letters, though.

I wrote down my basic feelings and put the envelope in the mail this morning ♥

...Unlike your package -- I'm sorry, when Teh Dramaz erupted I got distracted and missed my window to go to the post office T______T;;;

It seems to me that in trying to reach a new demographic (promoting younger stars and whatnot to attract those who gravitate towards idols, it seems), Hankyu is quite effectively alienating its current fanbase. Is there really anyone who actually approves of such young top musumeyaku as a practice?

Do stay on the island, though, or at least make a few trips back every so often. ♥

Maybe if they amass a lot of casual fans who are willing to come and see the proven-to-sell-well shows (like R+J), it won't matter if they lose the dedicated fans. As long as Ami-chan can sing and look pretty, the average person wouldn't necessarily be conscious of how young she is.

I've often wished, in the last half a year, that I could have just been a casual fan.

You know... more than anything, the YuuhiSumika numbers scare me the most... 'cause Yuuhi is the oldest current top star... D8 *keeps becoming more and more paranoid that she'll be the next to retire* T___T

But seriously... while I don't think Yukigumi's situation is THAT bad (aside from poor Ami possibly getting hate that she just doesn't deserve, and such a heavy responsibility despite being a ken-1), I seriously think Hankyuu made a big mistake with all those Yuki retirements.If Nacchan had stayed, how different would things be after Chika-san retires? I just think Ami should have a few more years at least before being given the top musumeyaku position. It's not fair on her at all D:

Also, we want you on this island, and I'm sure there's a lot of us who would gladly sink any metaphorical escape boats so you can't leave :P

Aw, shucks T____T ♥

I don't imagine you leaving the metaphorical Takarazuka island. You could no sooner leave it then I could leave the ANTM island. You'll just get to be a more bitter fan. Welcome to the dark side.

You've certainly made me consider writing to Ami :) Mind if I mention you vaguely (as in "someone I know in Japan went to bunkasai and said you were very good, that's where I first heard of you")?
Julie: alice katherine writewao_wao on July 24th, 2010 02:03 pm (UTC)
Um, that's... yeah, I guess it's okay, "Julie says you're alright", no pressure on me there >.>;;;

In all seriousness it's very sweet of you to think of writing too ♥
Beth Winterbwinter on July 24th, 2010 02:08 pm (UTC)
Oh, I wouldn't use your name! I just need to explain why a random fan from Poland is writing to her :)

On the age thing, I do agree. On Yumeka Ami, I do agree.

On the rest...pah.
