Maybe I would’ve found it disrespectful in other cases but in this one, I found it incredibly funny exactly because it’s about Akari and her attitude :)
It makes the video even more interesting and funny.
Also, I don’t think Akari was unaware of the fact that it got cut off.

calling Yuria “Actress” it’s too much, actually. Neither Rena could be considered so, at least, not now. But we’d say “She’s good at acting”.
I used “actress” there not as in professional actress, only intended as “person who acts”. We all know the girls are idols and none of them is a professional singer, actress, voice actress or anything else :)
I love the third season! but well, it’s not really popular because the casts is the new generations, and people keep on comparing this with the previous seasons and it pissed me off >_>
3rd season is not very popular because it’s not very good. I love the SKE members, but the drama was slow, with evident twists, with some terrible acting (some acceptable too, but not nearly enough to compensate) … Probably worse than the 2nd …
Oh, two contrastant opinions :)
I’ll just share mine then, not going to debate though, mostly in order not to fill the blog with forum-like things XD (but I’m always there in private or per mail if you want)
I believe none of the series could be considered good as dramas per se. They’re nothing special and a huge part of the enjoyability is in the characters being played by 48 members.
I agree on the terrible acting (putting it on a percentage level, S3 has probably the worse level of all and Paruru as main character doesn’t help, nor do help some members being considerably good.
But plot wise there’s no match for me, S3 is way superior.
I believe I already shared my opinions when the series ended, but, S3 has a balance the other series don’t have.
(aside from the trash factor, hugely diminished, but some may like it so it’s not necessarily something positive)
S1’s plot is ridiculously linear, while S2’s one is filled with sub-plot and useless fillers that kinda ruin the actual good parts and make it all confusing and…random.
I liked both (for what they are, of course), but S3’s plot is more balanced. It’s linear but not too much and the sub plots are not too vast but are well integrated. The result is more consistent.
I’ve thought a whole lot about this, considering various aspects of all the series, and I will never possibly think that S3 is qualitatively worse than 1 and 2.
It’s still my opinion, of course :)

Personal SKE (not exactly this time lol) Confession #10
I’ll forever be sad about the - in my opinion great - theme songs from the third season of Majisuka Gakuen never getting a music video even though they - and the series and the members - would’ve totally deserved it.
And I’ll keep contending forever that season 3 is qualitatively superior to the other two… (which doesn’t make it necessarily more likeable, expecially for the nostalgics of the storic huge characters - or better…members).
In any case, the fact that the songs didn’t get their MVs makes me even more sad exactly because I appreciated them and the series very much.
A not trash opening theme with even kinda deep lyrics T_T
Douki is GREAT and I love Paruru’s voice in it (her solo version is definitely my favorite one, without any doubt)
Majisuka Gakuen 3 deserved way more attention and popularity.
Please consider watching or re-watching it if you want…
*You might also notice how amazing of an actress a certain Kizaki Yuria is :)

★ Suda Akari’s expression of gratitude ★
Most of you might not know about this, but yesterday Akari revealed that there’s a secret message hidden in her appeal comment video. (message that I must admit I would’ve never got if it wasn’t for her pointing it out…)
As a hint she only said:
And this morning she also added to be careful to the changes in her voice tonality.
Now let’s watch her appeal comment video once again paying attention to her fingers and voice.
If you prefer the video without subs, here it is :)
As you can see she changes tonality various times but most of all it appears clear how she’s making numbers with her fingers.
2, 3, 4, 5.
This morning on G+ many tried to guess the right answer and some actually got it while others focused too much on counting the numbers.
Finally, in today’s Ameblog post, she revealed the answer.
Try guessing before reading the answer, okay?
I’ll put a read more :P

Matsui Rena’s Ameblog - 16\05\2013
Sayonara Crawl is about to be released.
I shall write something abou the MV today.
The full version hasn’t been released yet but anyway, this time we did the shootings in Okinawa.
Unbelievably we were even able to shoot in the so very famous Chuukai Aquarium!!
There were lots of various fishes inside huge water tanks, like manta,s rays and even a big whale shark!!
I had only seen one of those in Oosaka’s Kaiyukan, but since this time we did the shootings in the aquarium after it got closed we all took our time to properly gaze at the shark’s tank!
I feel as if the blue of the aquarium’s water tanks has the power to bring comfort to people’s hearts.
Moreover, for this MV I shooted image scenes in pair with Renacchi!!
We face each other,
our eyes meet…
I avert my eyes.
There’s no way something like that could be used for a shooting＼(^o^)／
Even though I say so, we were actually able to do some shootings with us properly looking at each other and being close and friendly, but the scene that was chosen to be used, in the end…
…is one with me being helplessly embarrassed.
Oh dear…I feel like I really understood why fans might feel nervous when they come to hand-shake events!
It’s embarrassing when a cute girl looks at you, isn’t it???
Please be sure to also pay attention to me being crazily in love with such a Renacchi and other cute members!♪ (tln: <- MIO! XD)

Hey, thank for passing by ;)
I must say you’re pretty much right :P
I honestly don’t listen to many things aside from SKE48 and the rest is pretty much composed by anime songs or artists related to the otaku world (expecially Mizuki Nana, Kajiura Yuki and Kalafina).
But it’s kinda the same for my other interests (anime, movies and tv series, videogames, books); I’m not very dedicated lately but I try to feed them a bit anyways so like…I’m trying to keep up with Railgun 2, Oreimo 2 and Shingeki no Kyojin; as for movies I recently fell in love with Kokuhaku, for series, aside from The Big Bang Theory I’ve been watching a couple of British short - but very nice - series (Black Mirror and Utopia), I occasionally re-play some old game (FF tactics is so addictive) and I’m slowly reading pretty much everything written by Dostoevskij :)

Hey, Moo, I don’t think it has to do with that :)
Yumechi is not even, by now, among the chosen front girls (Saki, Yuuna, Rion, Ruka).
I believe her amazing partecipation in Stages has to do with something they also mentioned in an MC: her past dance learning experience and ability to quickly memorize choreographies.
That might’ve put her one step above the others as for that aspect.
And, even though I LOVE Yume (you might’ve noticed lol), I’d get uber pissed of if they won’t promote Mizuho lol

Ps: the answer to yesterday’s question (who, after Akari, is the member she has more pics with) was Kanon.
However she then specified: “aside from graduated members” ;) (so yeah, either Ogichan or Kana XD)
