When a single guy outshines 88 girls

I don’t need AKB48. All I need is Shou.

Shou, I love. Will you marry me? ^_-

Shou

Thanks for making my day. I’m still laughing!

For those who doesn’t know, AKB48 (read “A.K.B. Forty-eight”) is a Japanese band who holds record of the Guiness World Record for being the world’s largest pop group. If I’m not mistaken, the group consists of 88 girls at the moment.

AKB48

They are extremely popular and you see pictures of them everywhere when you walk around in Tokyo.

Warning: K-pop trolls in the J-rock world!

How can you not love Golden Bomber…

I need their happy tunes, catchy songs and SILLY SENSE OF HUMOR!

Memeshikute is probably one of their most popular songs and deals with the dilemma of being “Unmanly“… so here’s the GIRLY K-POP VERSION of it!

(You need a good sense of humor yourself to enjoy this… ^_-)

 

I never get tired of it. They are so cute and funny. I just love people who dares to make fun of their own culture.

But as you might suspect, there IS a regular version as well… The “manly” (?) J-rock version. ^_-

 

Lyric Translation into english:

Unmanly unmanly
Miserable because of unmanliness

did you tease me?
I said I love you so much
What do you like about that guy?
You don’t need me anymore?

I wanna dance with you holding your hands
In the huge crowd
Only your smile was shining

I want to be loved. I need the signal again
That I over looked
Is it fickle? But I don’t care
I want to be with you

Unmanly Unmanly
Soaking up the sunshine
Unmanly Unmanly
Singing a love song
Unmanly Unmanly
Now, this world I reached is
Unmanly
Unmanly
Miserable because of unmanliness

Let’s dance today and forget
Yesterday’s old worries
Who are you going to be with? Who will be next?
Who will be the next one to love?

To be honest, I want to hug with you and sleep
I want you to moisturize my thirsty heart
With your beauty

Because of the love, I always made mistakes
Delicate woman’s mind, undefinite like cloud
raven swelling, narrow mind is begrudging again

Unmanly Unmanly
Watching two
Unmanly Unmanly
you touched his hand
This heart is
Unmanly Umanly
Miserable because of unmanliness

Ok,everybody
Enjoy it, living, fall in love
But its not only joyful, I’m proud
I’m sorry to be born, ready tonight
But Life-sized
guitar solo Kyan Yutaka

I’d rather want only you than love
My heart is like a dog
I don’t care even if you cheat on me

If I could be with you

I want to be loved. I need the signal again
That I overlooked
Is it fickle But I don’t care
I want to be with you

unmanly unmanly
Soaking up the sunshine
unmanly unmanly
Singing a love song
unmanly unmanly
Now, this world I reached is
unmanly unmanly
Miserable because of unmanliness

Gackt and Shou – a love story

I really like Golden Bomber and I will miss them during their hiatus.

The singer – Kiryuuin Shou – is so darn cute with his squinty eyes and funny looking teeth. His smile is brighter than the sun in Sahara. He’s nervous and awkward which in his case is adorable.

Shou's many faces...

Shou’s many faces…

Shou has – a bit jokingly – been entitled as “Gackt’s biggest fanboy” and there are plenty of funny stories about them.

This recording is old (from 1999). It’s from a radio show held by Gackt. At that time, Shou was only 15 years old and probably pretty nervous. Who wouldn’t be if Gackt suddenly called to your home?

It’s hilarious. Listen yourself (subbed in English)!


Kiryuuin Shou has been hosting the radio show “All Night Nippon” since 2011 and when Gackt was his guest, Gackt gave Shou a gift, a message. Look!

Look how happy Shou is!

Sugoi!

Sugoi!

Aaawww… Lovely kanji, a signature and a cute heart.

It says :”射精” (shasei).

That means ejaculation.

Well, what can I say. Gackt is Gackt.

The fanboy and the superstar.

The fanboy and the superstar.

Since Shou is so nervous all the time and a huge fan of Gackt, I just can’t help but smiling widely when I see them both together.
For instance, Shou joined Gackt on stage at the end of Gackts “Camui Gakuen” tour. I didn’t know that but recently.

From Camui Gakuen.

From Camui Gakuen.

The following video is from “ALL LIVE NIPPON” that took place December 15th 2012. You see Gackt in the middle of a dark scene, like a royalty, singing his hit Redemption emotionally and with power. His microphone stand looks like a creation of H.R. Giger, like a metallic alien. The lightning, his clothes… everything brings a certain seriousness over the performance.

Gackt performs with Redemption, looking cool.

But suddenly, Shou turns up behind him. A bit awkward he steps down to Gackt, bringing his own microphone stand that more or less looks like a cheap carbon copy of Gackt’s.

I guess Shou's budget can't be compared to Gackts...

They start to talk and it seems to be a funny conversation. I wish I understood Japanese better than I do… They continued singing Redemption together. Wow… the super idol and the funny fanboy. What a moment.

Then there’s some more talking, followed by a beautiful duet where they sing: Orenji no Taiyou
Really touching.

Shou and Gackt perform together.

And here it is in motion…


 
Kiryuuin Shou is such a lovely musician and “comedian” and I guess that’s a reason why I like Golden Bomber so much. Just like him, they have self-distance and a good sense of humor!
And great music, of course. ^^

That smile! <3

That smile! <3

I hope I will see more of Kiryuuin Shou soon!
