How to vote for Paruru in AKB48’s 32nd Single Election

May 21, 2013 by

I realized that I have a lot of Paruru oshis in my followers list and I’m friends with a few too. So as a special thanks to all of you, this is a unique guide on how to vote for Paruru in the election!

First, go to the voting site: http://akb48-sousenkyo2013.jp/voter/

This is what you will see. Click on the first pink button to search by name.
1_Search Name

Since Paruru’s name is Shimazaki Haruka, next you will have to click on “さ” which means “Sa” in Hiragana. It will list down all names that starts with S.
2_Choose Sa

Next page will have a list of ALL the candidates that starts with S. Paruru’s name can be quite similar to some of the members so make sure you click the right name!

Click “島田晴香” because that is Paruru’s name in Japanese. Trust me.
3_ Click Name

Next, enter your two serial numbers and press vote!
4_Vote

Oh, and ignore that Shimada picture on the page, I’ve already e-mailed AKS about it and they said they had a problem in uploading images. Your votes will still go to Paruru, don’t worry!

That’s the end of my special guide. Have fun voting, Paruru oshis!

Idols of the Past I: Onyanko Club (1985~1987)

May 21, 2013 by

This is the very first installment of a series of articles dedicated to idols from the past. I am not only writing this because it is interesting to know but it will also help you enjoy certain shows you watch even more! Many current shows involve idols of the past, segments like where an idol of today has to do something with an idol of yesterday are very popular! It’s pretty interesting to know from which corner of entertainment they came from. Ok, enough intro, this wont be there anymore in the future articles but I have to introduce this section somehow XD

For the very first edition of Idols of the Past, there’s no one better to start off with than Onyanko Club (おニャン子クラブ)! Onyanko Club translates into something like Cats Club/Kitten Club. It is is one of the first popular large idol groups and it’s from the 80’s. I think many of us probably know this but if you don’t know it yet; You think AKB48 is Aki-P’s first ever group? BUBBUUU! Onyanko Club was in fact the very first large idol group by Aki-P! Yes you read that right, it was not your imagination LOL! XD So yeah, nice! Let’s get to know this Onyanko Club better! 😀
