Nogizaka46’s Meiji Essel Supercup Sweet’s Channel (1) [ENG Sub]

[Original Post from Previous Blog]

Good mornight!

Admin Ikuchan here.

First of all, I would like to apologize that because of me (again) the next scheduled release of subbed Nogidoko eps. 72 is delayed (again) m(_ _)m

In the meantime, here I present you a video of Nogizaka’s new Meiji CM.

Maiyan, Ikuchan, Sayurin, and Miona are in this video. You know why I only subbed this one. YES! OTP is together in this video!
Please don’t ask me to sub the other one where Naachan, Manatsu, Reika, and Kazumin are in. Unless you’ll pay me then I will 😛 lol kidding. I’m sure someone out there will do soon.

Actually I’m posting this without asking admin Sayuringo first. But I’m sure he would allow me anyway ww.

So, here it is.

(Note: This post is supposed to be published yesterday. But due to many circumstances, it got delayed. And sorry for some miss translations.)

Aww yiss! OTP together as guest stars in a TV show! ❤

Nah, I guess I won’t be too hyped this time. Because…well, as you can see, Maiyan is crying there. So many meanings behind those tears. But I guess it’s kinda hard for me to interpret. Is it because she was thinking about leaving the group that made her broke into tears when the diviner told her that, “This is still the beginning of Nogizaka’s era”?

I don’t know. And I’d rather not to talk about graduation. I’m fed up.

I’ll just positively think that she was holding those tears because what the diviner said about her is right. She really is giving her best for the group. She isn’t thinking about herself. She always thinks about the group. Even though she didn’t say that directly, I knew, we, fans knew that.

Well, for now…

I’ll just pray for myself so I can get the Tokyo Dome Concert ticket.

Aaaaand….. Maybe I’ll spend some minutes to stare at their back appearances.

Ufufu~ ❤

Shiraishi Mai’s 2017 Seitansai Project (IkuMai & Sayurin/Baka Couple & Ikuchan/Karaage Sisters & Maiyan?)

I guess this post has the longest title ever in my blogging history.

And yeah, this project got delayed too orz
I have no excuses this time (I have a lot tho) so let me make it up.

So, let’s have a small discussion first regarding the tittle. Which one is the perfect one to you? It’s kinda hard for me to choose.

…well I’m biased to the first choice anyway. But it’s still hard. I like Karaage Sisters too.

Shall we make a new ship name for these three? I’m bad at naming so I’ll entrust to you all =))


(It’s 2 am here and I used my brain to finish subbing ealier so I won’t write much this time. Possibility write amendment in the future for this post)

I think these three got the spotlight as a ship since NogiDoko 1st valentine special (in Feb 2014) where Ikuchan gave the present to Sayurin, Sayurin to Maiyan, and Maiyan to Ikuchan. A perfect circle for triangle love. lol

Here goes some of Maiyan’s blog posts related to these three.

120930 Omelette Rice for Lunch(o^_^o)

こんばん♪( ´▽`)は

Good even♪( ´▽`)ing

Yubi Bouenkyou’s MV was aired in NogiDoko for a little!


This photo was taken when we had a filming for the MV☆


It was a bit misty in the picture. But after that, it became clear and showed up its beautiful scenery(((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

Please watch the MV for details♡lol

The ‘imouto’ aura is strong from Ikuchan in that photo ❤

130201 Shalt See Through(o^_^o)


Something is different than usual. Did you notice it?


As Maiyan’s fan, I’m sure you noticed it in a jiff!

As a test, I asked Ikuchan, Kazumin, and Sayurin…


Only Sayurin got the right answer!
As expected from my darling(〃▽〃)



Ikutaso and Kazumin keeps saying “this one’s different!” but they didn’t get the right answer. Sobs…

But I’m happy they noticed many things from me. *shy*

“My darling”
As expected from a canon ship =))

161216 Sweet(o^_^o)

And then, did you also watch our performance with Pikotaro-san?

I was wearing his trademark costume!


SayuApple pose

Waka joined us too♡

For  this one, let me say this…


Since I discovered that Waka and Maiyan are really close, lately I craved for more WakaMai moments :3
Okay, that’s a bit irrelevant to this post. Let’s move to the next one before I lose against my fatigue.

170204 Turn Around(o^_^o)

A moment when I met Ikuchan again after a long time.

The one I’m hugging is Ikuchan
The one who tied her hair using pink rubber is Sayurin

And Manattan who looks at us

We’re having fun together evertyday♪


3P AND NTR /headshot (←exhausted+sleep-deprived+has no proper internet connection+no money=crazy af)

I really like Maiyan’s expression in this photo. So gentlemen <33333

I’m getting crazy about this ship. o<-<


It really needs to amend. I’m sure I have more trivia regarding this topic. But I can’t think of any anymore. I’ll update soon. Good mornight! o/


Shiraishi Mai’s 2017 Seitansai Project (MV)

Whoa! It’s 8:00 PM here and I can finally open my laptop to write this after I’m done with my office work.

This time will be slightly brief and there’ll be some grammar errors due to overworked brain so…I apologize in advance m(_ _)m

As the title said, MV or Music Video. Once I read an IkuMai thread in a Japanese forum, those two became canon/official pairing since Girl’s Rule MV. It’s true I guess. But I can’t say that they’re canon though. Not so many people ship these two. But I’m happy whenever IkuMai created a moment or two together, people in thread I follow were saying “Oh, here comes IkuMai!” or “IkuMai is really soothing” or so they said. It’s good to know that I’m not alone T v T

Now back to MV topic.

I was planning to create .gifs where IkuMai are together in every MV. But…I guess I’ll postpone it and do it when I have more me time than office time. I will do. I…promise.

That wasn’t so convincing but, I will definitely do. Dunno when tho. Don’t worry, I’m a pro(crastinator) after all =))

Seriously now,

here I present you some of Maiyan’s blog posts that related to MV along with Ikuchan.

120204 Me and Kanojo*♪

There’s a scene where a girl was rubbing other girl’s leg in Guru-Guru Curtain’s MV,




actually that’s my leg that rubs Ikuchan’s!



Just a little trivia (lol)


That is why I put a gif of that scene in my Tumblr yesterday :3

FTOOJBO!!! *shot*


I need to restrain myself from doing an intense delusion here.


Up next!

130315 Mint Green(o^_^o)

Shakiism as the coupling song!

It’s obvious I wanted you all to listen to the song, but I recommend you to watch the MV too.


With Ikoma; my BFF and Ikuta the moral committee.


Actually I’m very close with the moral committee lol

Hmm… Okay… I couldn’t help myself but imagining what kind of things the ‘moral committee’ was doing to male Shiraishi in the MV…

I cannot stop grinning… SOMEBODY HELP!!!


Move to the next one before my delusion escalates.

130610 Pure White(o^_^o)

Oh, right.

Girl’s Rule’s MV has finally released!


So many scenes were took place at the pool. Members were doing their best in the filming by waking up early and staying until late.


And then, it’s the exact opposite with Shakiism, me and Ikuchan are close friends in this MV!


Aw, yeah♡



Yes, the ‘so-called’ beginning of official IkuMai. I like how they spent their time together when they were taking break from the filming. And I still have the urge to sub the video but since the source is DVD…I think it’s best for me not to share it or else $ony might take all my accounts including this blog down L



131122 Effort and Will-power(o^_^o)

In chorus part, I danced desperately along with Ikuchan. (Sonna Baka na…’s MV)


First time I watched this MV, I didn’t realize IkuMai’s aura. Instead, I shipped Ikuchan with Waka lol


Okay. I guess that’s all I could present to you this time. Don’t worry, I will take one day leave on Friday so I’m gonna have 4 days consecutive free days! Yay! More time to spend to be productive in my fandom life.

And as always, you can add more information that I didn’t mention here. I’m reachable so contact me anytime. See you!

*)I didn’t translate the word ‘Kanojo’ because it has double meaning. It can be both ‘she/her’ and ‘girlfriend’ so…you know what I mean *wink, wink*

Shiraishi Mai’s 2017 Seitansai Project (Oshimen)

The day is near.

I was planning to do this since I planned for Ikuchan’s in this year’s first half. Well, many things distracted me to prepare this properly since the beginning, so I’ll do it as I prepared last night.

At first, I was planning to to the same like I did on Ikuchan’s; cut some scenes from TV program and gather them into some categories which became Maiyan’s trademark. But it would take too much time. So I changed the plan into “posting some IkuMai moments that mentioned in Maiyan’s blog”. Not only that, I will also add some trivia in each post. So let’s start with this ‘Oshimen’ first.

Actually I haven’t heard/saw Maiyan said that Ikuchan is her oshimen in a TV show. But she was saying it in some interviews.

Here goes what I’ve discovered

Shiraishi Mai’s Oshimen: Ikuta Erika

Ikuchan is very cute. She’s good in singing, can play the piano, even good in dancing. She also has a nice style. In other words, she is perfect. Only one minus point she has; she can’t cook (lol). I’m older than her so she talks to me as if I’m her big sister. And that is another cute part of her. If people ask me to choose one member as an oshimen in Nogizaka46, no doubt, it’s Ikuchan for me. source

Next is from a magazine interview

Let’s give it a zoom

Question 8: Your oshimen in the group?

Ikoma: *immediate answer* Nishino Nanase-chan! She’s an angel.
Shiraishi: Ikuchan (Ikuta Erika) maybe?
Sakurai: Higuchi Hina-chan
Hashimoto: I’m a DD. Oh, but please make it as Saito Asuka if it’s needed to be narrowed down (lol).

Need more proofs? Challenge accepted! Here goes what I’ve found from Maiyan’s blog

140125 Long Time No See(o^_^o)

◎How is Ikuchan like in usual times~?

She is honest, but sometimes she turns into amusing person. I don’t know why she is always praising me.

Ikuchan’s night spririt is very cute, you know?
Oh, wait. She is ALWAYS cute.

What can I say? She is my oshimen after all!


Another one

140805 To The Next(o^_^o)

Good evening

There was an announcement of 10th single senbatsu members
And then, Ikuchan welcome baaaack!
I’ll support you as center. Let’s do our best and enjoy it as you like!

Ikuchan is my forever oshimen. I love youー♡



“I love youー♡”




There was a time when Maiyan is almost oshihen (change oshimen) to Minami. She stated in her 755

Konekotan (fan): Who will be your next oshimen after Ikuchan?
Maiyan: Lately, I feel that Minami is getting cuter and cuter. Everytime I gave her some clothes, she always give back something to me. Yesterday she gave me chocolate (T ^ T)♡ She said that her mom insisted her to give it to me…(T ^ T) It’s ok if I don’t get anything though (T ^ T)

But in the end, her oshimen is still Ikuchan. Proof? If you are a regular reader of this blog, I’m sure you already read this one as well, right? (I’m too lazy to rewrite it so please refer to the attached link m(_ _)m )

That’s all I could share this time. You can add more trivia regarding this topic by submitting them on the comment section, mention me on twitter, ask me on tumblr, anything! I’ll gladly wait and open my arms for it.

Well then…I’ll continue subbing another episode to upload on my other blog. See you later!
