Nice Girls

March 2, 2008

So thanks to Maple GreenTea we have all of h!p’s mean girls (I disagree about Jun and Sayu, but that’s something for later). Now I shall list the girls I think of as H!p’s gentlest souls. Why? Honestly, because I can’t think of anything else to write.

Konno Asami: Has she ever said anything mean about anyone? And really, anyone who states that their tension rises when they’re around microwave ovens (specifically when the timer goes off) has to be a good person.

Mitsui Aika: Aika is just a big snuggly wriggly puppy. Honestly, that’s what I think of when I think of her.

Kamei Eri: Eri’s like the girl next door (the incredibly sexy, talented girl next door). She has an easy going aura about her.

Suzuki Airi: I just couldn’t picture her hurting a fly. Now that I’ve written that, I’m starting to think that maybe the feeling I get from Airi is less gentle and friendly and more passive… Hm.

Kumai Yurina: Yurina’s kindness comes from her natural, airheaded persona. I don’t think bitchiness would even occur to her.

Yoshizawa Hitomi: Yossy is nice in a big sisterly kind of way. Like the kind of nice person who’d beat up the bullies on the playground for you.

Iida Kaori: She’s kind of like h!p’s mother-figure. I felt it was so fitting that she had a child, because she’s so motherly and caring. Junjun is like this too.

Random: Kei looks good with a mustache.

Konno is Bou?!

February 17, 2008

I was recently looking at some pictures of Konno Asami while listening to Antic Cafe’s wonderful new single, Cherry Saku Yuuki. I can’t listen to anything of Antic Cafe’s without thinking about their wonderful and adorable former guitarist, Bou (he recently left the group for unspecified reasons). So as I sat there, looking at Konno and thinking about Bou, the two just sort of… collided in my mind. Suddenly, all I could think was how similar in looks and, to an extent, character, the two were. Then I wondered, could the reason I like Konkon so much be because she subconsciously reminds me of Bou? After all, I had been a fan of Bou’s for quite a while before even hearing about h!p. And Konno isn’t normally the type of h!p girl I like- she’s super cute, has a voice that isn’t the conventional “good” voice, and her personality is more girly and cute than the cooler roles I normally like.

Could it be that I can thank Bou for helping me to like Konno?

Perhaps I’m just crazy, but I do think that there’s something of a resemblance between the two (or maybe it’s just because they have all the same poses?).

PS: Bou is 100% male. Well, at least 80%. And, because I love it so much and want you all to love it, too, here is a link to Antic Cafe’s newest single/pv : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVb3o6W8Aa4
