AKB48 Rage at Rino: “If She Can Win, What’s The Point!?”

rino-sweet-victory

The widely derided general election victory of AKB48 “super carnivore” Rino Sashihara looks to have enraged even other members of the group, as comments from a number of them savaging Sashihara and her unclean victory as an affront to the very serious business of feigning virginity in order to extract creepy otaku cash have been made public.

Yuuko Oshima, who placed second after her former number one placement was brutally seized by Sashihara, is said to be particularly infuriated:

“What the hell is with this election? It’s laughable. If someone like Sashihara is number 1, we’re just going to become some sort of comedy group. I can’t even cry… it’s ridiculous for those of us who are doing it seriously.”

5th place “graduate” Mariko Shinoda also had plenty of vitriol to spit on Sashihara – and apparently her decision to retire was sealed by the sight of Sashihara sweeping into first place – saying that “if this is something where the likes of Sashihara can get into first place, there’s no point in me treating it seriously.”

The backbiting was rounded off my general manager Minami Takahashi saying “if I lose to Sashihara, I’ll kowtow!” – though she later revised her intentions to “if it’s something to kowtow over I may as well just quit being general manager.”

    If pretending not to have sex makes one pure then I wonder what lashing out on other members makes them? o.O

    Women are nasty creatures, period. If you piss off a man, he'll punch you and that will be the end of it. But not women, they'll go out of their way to drag your name into the mud and ruin your life.

    Well the good news is that she doesn't need to worry about "becoming" a comedy group.

    They certainly can't sing or dance, so maybe comedy might work for them. :3

    Oh, additionally at least this makes it more likely that these aren't fixed elections. Since I'd always wondered exactly how many idiots really did pay money to vote for someone. It's hard enough to get people to vote in real elections so I was seriously skeptical.

    Everyone prostitutes themselves in one way or another... ignoring that is just hypocrisy. If everyone could live with a little more humility and were able to joke about themselves it'd to the world a lot of good.

    AKB48 is just the same as any other pop personality from anywhere else in the world. If anyone shouldn't take themselves seriously it's them... yet the people who do create real, serious music still don't even take themselves as seriously as the ego-bloated pop entertainers do (entertainers and nothing else, since pop doesn't go with actual artists or musicians).

    The true definition of a clown with two faces. Appearing to themselves as standing on a pedestal of grandeur when it's really built on ridicule. Only those who accept and embrace the truth survive.

    Maybe everyone should just start sleeping with thier fans!!! I think thats the next step for akb to work, hey it works with the visual kei industry its how they make money. I'm pretty sure it would work well with the girls too as long as they keep quiet about who and how many they sleep with.

    Joining otaku idol groups is like joining a monastery, except they're the ones being worshipped. The vow of chastity is serious business.

    Those who don't take the vow seriously only make the ones who do salivate over what they know they're missing.

    The vow of chastity is a serious business only to the dumbasses who believe in it's existence. In reality, nobody involved in the business cares as long as the girls don't get caught.

    Idol otaku are buying the illusion of virginal prudes, and that's exactly what they are getting. Having their unrealistic fantasies broken is well deserved.

    "Having their unrealistic fantasies broken is well deserved."

    Why?

    What's wrong with having unrealistic fantasies? Of dreaming of a better world than this one, where every woman is a rotten whore as a matter of course?

    Get a clue, there is not single virgin amongst AKB, the whole, "virgin idol" thing is a scam to win over the creepy virgin hunter otaku who can only fap to their favorite waifu as long as they can dream of being the first one to deflower them.

    If one of them was actually a virgin, I would go out and buy a top hat.

    Then proceed to eat it.
    At least monks gave me something awesome like pretzels, I have yet to see what Otaku have given me other than a bad name for enjoying some things that they also enjoy. :/

    If she's a super-carnivore, and came out on top of the rest, doesn't that make her an apex predator?

    When more than 2/3 of the votes are crap bought in bulk by a few people, they should really consider just becoming prostitutes. These guys are obviously able to afford it.

    Well, the whole point of being an idol is to present themselves as an ideal entity that is above human. That takes a lot of work, as humans are far from perfect. The idols know this when they sign up for the job, so it's hardly "oppressive" or "sexist".

    It makes sense that idols who take their job seriously would be upset that someone who utterly fails at the whole point of the job is the most popular.

    I'm sure they're feeling like they might as well not bother with their appearance and just sit around doing typical human things like being rude vulgar shits, scratching their butts and having orgies.

    What they should really be mad about is their system for granting votes. It's not a democratic election; it's a case of whoever spends the most money puts their favorite girl on top. If everyone in Japan was given a single vote, I'm sure the roster would be *entirely* different.

    AKB48 & co, its a business not a general election of the governement..so regardless of being whoever spends more money or not, this is a way of them profiting, no matter how unfair it may seem to you.

    Its funny if you think about it. Back in the day (60's when it first formed), AKB48 was one of the first idol groups to take music, acting, modeling, etc and make them all meet together and have the idol do all of these. It was orthodox to usually have a talent specialize in a more narrow area. A lot of idol agencies began to copy this formula by the 80s and it became standard to what we see today a few years later. In my opinion ABK48's formula for multi-talent idols was never a good idea anyways. They become jack of all trades and master of none, which eventually causes actual mastery to be pushed to the side and talent gets mistaken for "how many things you can do at once." This formula will cause an agency to collapse on itself, and I think what AKB48's business has turned into in the present age is a prime example of a business model waiting to collapse on itself. It thrives on how many gullible people it can pull in. The rankings mean nothing, and previous people who are fired can easily be pulled back. Plus the policies and idealism are a joke. Making the focus of PR being that your idols are virgins is a stupid idea to begin with and eventually it will crumble. AKB48 (not the idols, but he managers), will eventually get what's coming to them.

    You think AKB48 was around in the 60s? Dude, they were formed in 2005. Idol Groups like Speed and Morning Musume were around far before AKB48, and were a lot classier too.

    Classier? Speed OK. MM? No. H!P go way too young it's actually creepy.

    Maybe he was talking about Onyanko club? Though that was still mid-80s

    Just because H!P is creepy, but MM still great, especially around 2nd-6th gen. I enjoyed their music more than AKB's.

    I think they're more pissed off that they've spent their youth remaining as pure as possible to appease the autistic sperglords in the Japanese idol fan community...

    And it turns out they could have been going for a "super-carnivore" theme instead and been just as well off.
