…and now that we’ve caught up with Yuichan~♥ first there’s the thought of gravure and really idols have different facets to their approach and appeal across this large genre in Japan where anything from “U” to pure to gravure can separate their fan~bases in obvious ways. There’s definitely a controversy to speak of with the “U” idols but when you step back a bit and think about it what it comes down to is really a variance in cultures and how even going back to one’s upbringing and how society and media are projected where you live can dictate and really just present aspects to which where to one it may seem so completely normal, while when viewed elsewhere questions may be abound. Gravure is seeing an idol in a light where they push the sexy* envelop a bit more or sometimes a lot more than their fellow idol counterparts as gravure is rather more of an approach than a definable line in the sand. To say one is gravure can simply mean that an idol tends to be marketed towards a sexier* aura so even with something as innocent as a mizugi* shoot, it @ times will also be quoted as “gravure” so this term is quite broad to say the least~.

There’s such an adorable~* innocence in Yuichan’s audition as she vied for the prestigious idol title of “Miss Magazine”…….lol I mean check out her audition/introduction sign (人∀`*)。。。!、where instead of maybe re~writing or maybe using the other side of her sign Yuichan opted to um….scratch out her hip measurement as her waist measurement was meant to be first :P! But then again I’ve witnessed oh~so~many “batsu” like reactions by staff where you just know that your favorite idols will inevitably fall at some point to the well, sometimes funnily timed and even a bit mean @ times plotting of the powers that be :P! So….um maybe the staff didn’t “have available” another sheet of paper (Yui’s sign material XD) so that she could correct it…..me thinks differently (。ーωー。)笑。

But (sigh*)…..the life of a gravure idol, I mean who wouldn’t love it! Aside from the batsu torturing and untimely unavailability of paper you do! get to wear the sexiest* and cutest of clothes….bikinis….sometimes much less clothes (・д・`*)!。。but I have a feeling~* no one’s complaining….fans and the idol♥ alike =).

Okay~* in order to back this up, here’s a “day in the life” of Yuichan♥…..and yes~! in case you’re wondering she does eventually get on top* (*´艸`)。。。:P!

Being new to it all Yuichan♥ does fall victim to the dreaded NG and you gotta love that where Western television tends to separate their “NG’s” into special features and the like, here it’s just part of the original program ( ̄▽ ̄)♪♪~!

            • U~n it’s sort of a lonely post (+_+)…but it does get viewed quite a lot as I’ve noticed. Even still @ Vox right now her post shows up in my Blogpatrol stats every day quite a lot so I think it’s most likely from a Google search.


              • hydeo says:

                she is cute a lot, i see one of the scans where she is with the hair a little short than normal, and wahhh is so cute aheahea better than the long one 😛

                and i like girls with long hair 😛


                • Ehhhhh?…that’s so different of you =)! I mean I just remember you saying how much longer hair meant to you. But it’s true that depending on your facial features it can match much better on some girls than others but even that may be mostly personal taste~. I was able to get her autograph~♥ on a signed B.L.T. panel a few months ago..she signs really cutely using the hiragana for “yu” making it look like a little fishy~ (*´∀`)♥。


                  • hydeo says:

  2. hydeo says:

    oh the msg dont become a new one :\


  3. HarimaKenji says:

    Taxes are 60% of the full price of the order, including shipping. So if the shipping were 40 dollars, the 20 hydeo talked about turn into almost 100: 20 + 40 = 60 + 60% = 96. That’s valid for orders up to 3000 dollars, not meant for reselling. There are two exceptions to this: software pays taxes only on the price of the physical medium (in case, the CD/DVDs themselves) but that’s just in case where that price is explicit in the product, and that’s never true, so it’s an useless exception; and in the case of books, journals, magazines, and paper and anything else used to produce them. I have no idea whether “photobook” would count as “book”, but I did buy a lot of light novels some time ago and they arrived ok with no tax. I imagine manga would work too then (since you wouldn’t know the difference really by just looking at the cover if it’s a light novel or a manga, and none of them was open when I received).

      And I just noticed nobody asked. Sorry, nerd reflexes.


      • hydeo says:
