There comes a time in every idol’s career where she must say farewell to her current situation and graduate to something more. Sure, there’s lots of flinging and/or burning merchandise on the part of her wota, yet I’d like to think they eventually calm down and realize that what she’s doing is in her best interests and at the end of the day, we’re all human beings regardless of our social position.
This sounds like a post gearing up to discuss Goto Maki’s recent hiatus announcement (good for her!), but actually, I HAVE A NEW BLOG. I’ve been through the archive here, and I have to be honest…it’s godawful. My reviews, my half-baked psychological inquiries on idols, my errors — they’re all on display for the viewing and laughing pleasure of any poor son of a bitch who stumbles in from Googling “ishikawa rika nude”. What’s worse, it’s been roughly four years since I wrote any of it. My interests and the ways in which I communicate my thoughts have changed (well, I’d like to hope the latter has). I recently wrote two posts, one detailing Perfume’s wardrobe and the other a review of a mini-album by an artist who seldom few that used to follow this blog have ever even heard of. It occurred to me that everything here, from the subject matter to the quality of the posts, would contrast horribly with anything new I might ever feel like writing. And curiously, the header image on this blog’s layout has only reinforced my decision. I realized that soon, the only two girls who will still be in Momusu who are also featured in my banner are going to be the new leader and sub-leader. That’s a frightening thought, to me.
So this is my graduation.
