Uta no Onii-san (live blogging)

Finally!!! I'm in a real Ohno fever lately. ^^;

LOL, Kenta is being stalked by kids. xD
Awww, he shared his food with them. Although I doubt he did it voluntarily.

Typing with one hand really sucks, but my left hand is full of nashi...

YAY, Pants Prince is throwing a fit!!!

Serves you right, PP!!! Kenta's viewer's rating was higher. *gg*

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!?!? Uta no oniisan change!?

Too bad loyalty is easily forgotten when someone promises your face more time on TV. xD
And she's probably even worse than him/without him...

"Uta no ojiisan..." LOOOL

I should screenshot Ohno's faces, but I'm lazy.

It never rains but it pours, huh, Kenta-kun?

"Yo." ... "Yo." ... "Yo." xD

He really can't smile, poor Kenta-kun.
Btw, the Pants Princess is actually quite pretty. If she would cut that annoying way of speaking, maybe some guys would even hit on her.

OMG, I know that song!!! "Ooki na ... ki no shita de, anata to watashi..." Was it from university or from Yoiko no Mikata that I've known it?

Isn't it a bit weird for rock stars/visual kei guys to use polite Japanese? XD
Awwwwwwwwwww, is there a chance she still loves him? How could she dump him in the first place??? ;__;

OMG, the PP 's normal clothes are even scaries than his work clothes!!!!!!!!!! O_O
LOL Just leave him standing there.
Julie, did you hear that??? More Engrish! "AI BI BAAAAKU!"

AWW, such a cute face while looking at Giselle's CD! Can someone hug that guy, please??? >______________<
Guess I have to take screenshots...

Manabe-san is being wise again...

"Kocchi no mago nan da yo." XD Teach that kid some manners!

WHAT THE HELL IS THAT??? Akane steals his dream and then tells him he's "dame"?!?!?!?!? ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, was that Michael Jackson in the lobby? XD

Ah, waratta! Aw, Kenta-kun is so cute with the little kid in the end. *______________*

"Chuu, chuu!" Yeah, next week is Valentine's Day in UtaOni!!! Can't wait!!!!!!!!!

And it seems like Akane really loves Kenta-kun. Baka.


EDIT: Found fabulous gifs here: http://micodeavi.livejournal.com/33778.html

I doubt he did it voluntarily.
He didn't. The dude thought he was buying for all of them, served up one for each of them and Satoshi didn't feel that he could be mean enough to say no.

Re Pants Prince: I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!?!?!

I KNEW you'd mention Uta No Ojiisan!

Re Pants Princess: She's even prettier in Abarenbou Mama. And her way of talking wasn't anywhere near as annoying (she was obnoxious as Queen Bees' sidekicks generally are, but at least she didn't talk like she did on here.) I'd have gone out with her, at the end of the series at least.

Re WastefulBitchyStupid (see below): I buy it. I think speaking rudely in front of your fans is very much frowned upon in Japan. Remember Sawajiri Erika's "betsu ni" episode? She rocked up to a premiere all sulky, when someone asked if there was any part of the movie(?) that she particularly liked she said "Betsu ni" (Nothing really) in a sulky voice, and the whole country's media went nuts. So if that's bad for an experienced star's career, it must be even worse for a new band like WastefulBitchyStupid. Humility seems to be the key word here, especially for new entertainers.

I loved that scene with PP as well (and yes, I immediately alt-tabbed to this post when he said "I'LL BE BAAAAAAKKU!!!")

WHAT THE HELL IS THAT??? Akane steals his dream and then tells him he's "dame"?!?!?!?!? ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She was actually quite amicable about it. While the whole "we live in different worlds now" thing did sound snobby, what she actually said in the "dame" part was something to the effect of "If you come back now it'd be no good for me or you." And for what it's worth, she acknowledged that the whole Tokyo Dome thing was originally Kenta's dream, and thanked him for it.

And yeah, I did love the scene with the bratty kid at the end. That older kid is the glue that holds the show together as much as Manabe, Y/Y? I see a future in producing for her...

And now my comments:

*at the scene where they pull his payslip out of his pants and comment that he's kept important stuff in his pants pockets since he was a kid* What IS it about this show and pants?

Hey, Satoshi, at least they weren't telling you to smile with your eyes!

Actually, that face when they were pretending to take the photo was a pretty good fierce face. Very high fashion. Tyra would approve.

Every time I see the name of Satoshi's Ex's Band I think "Giselle, you *beeeep* worthless *beeeep*. You're so wasteful, bitchy, stupid...you're worthless. Your parents must be ashamed of you.

Also, translating interviews for j-rock bands and watching my editor deal with the complete bullshit some bands and/or their management like to dish out has taken its toll on me. I don't know if it's Wasteful-Bitchy-Stupid's* aloof expressions a lot of the times I see them or what, but I just can't help going "Oh, you think you're all that and then some, but I bet ANYTHING that your flunkies squeeze dirty cloths into your tea a la the ditzy BOE lady in Monster Parents, and me and Sara will be cursing your names a few months down the track."

*And now I'm picturing them releasing an album called WastefulBitchyStupid, a la TLC's CrazySexyCool. Yup, I have to call them WastefulBitchyStupid from now on. It's too catchy. The red-haired dude on the left can be Wasteful, Satoshi's Ex can be Bitchy and the brown-haired guy on the right can be Stupid. And the brilliant thing is, if Satoshi ever DOES come back (and I'm not predicting that he will, though I wouldn't be surprised if there were a scene like in Daddy Day Care where he gets offered the chance and almost accepts it but decides that he misses the kids' show too much or the kids' show needs him more or something ETA: Scratch that) he could be Lazy! It's too perfect!

The release date of that single was the deadline for JETs to hand in their forms saying whether they want to recontract or not.

Hee, I love Satoshi sitting there smoking in public in his costume. XD

FUNKY TOWN. They're playing the music from FUNKY TOWN. HELL YEAH. Oh, the nostalgia. I was 11 when my mum bought a compilation with that song on it.
Feb. 9th, 2009 12:21 pm (UTC)
And actually, now I think about it, I don't think she even meant the "we live in different worlds" thing in a "we're heading for the big time and you're just a bum" way that I initially thought, just that they were doing their thing and Satoshi was doing his and they were going in different directions now.
Feb. 9th, 2009 05:12 pm (UTC)
Of course I would! Uta no ojii-san rocks! XD

I didn't know about the Sawajiri Erika incident (or did I? It rings something...), but you're right. Still, it sounds kinda uncool. And being sulky and being impolite is not quite the same. But you're right, of course.


I know she tried to be nice, but still I somehow cannot sympathize with her. I feel like her reasons are a bit shallow.


Concerning your comments:

It's the Pants Show! They should rename it, really. xD

Yay, just fake a smile. Pull your mouth up a bit, that's enough for TV. Photoshop will do the rest, like it did with the PP's poster.
They should give him another job, the scary guy or something like that. Uta no akuma?
Btw, was Genki Dipshit's smile frightening or not???

Everytime *I* see the name of that band, I'm like, how could Johnny's boy Ohno be their lead singer? I know it's not Ohno himself, but somehow...

LOL for the WBS(L) thing. But I guess I'll stick to Giselle because I, like Kenta, am lazy and can't be forced to type so much.

I love how he smokes at the playground. And his FACE! Did you see the gifs??? Hilarious.
Feb. 9th, 2009 11:56 pm (UTC)
The Sawajiri Erika thing happened a couple of years ago, in mid/late 2007, I think.

Yeah, I suppose Bitchy is being a bit snobby (and by the way, if WastefulBitchyStupid is too long, how about Heatwave? *looks for video* FUCK! It's gone! GRRR. There was a video compiling the top ten funniest things Elyse Sewell said on ANTM and there was another funny one about Giselle. I can't remember where it is in the show and it's too hard to search for it at work, but Tyra's having this bonding session that involves a group hug over candles and someone says it's like a heatwave and Giselle says "Heatwave? What's that, like a fart or something?" To which Elyse says "Giselle coined the term "heatwave" as a euphemism for farts, which I think thus far is her major contribution to society." So yeah! We could call the band Heatwave and the members Wasteful, Bitchy and Stupid. And their debut album can still be WastefulBitchyStupid.)

Y/Y is a term I got from Grace. Y/N means "yes or no", so Y/Y implies that it's impossible to disagree.

They HAVE to rename it the Pants Show. XD

And yes, I foresee a job as a presenter at JET conferences in Ding Dong Genki Dipshit's future. XD

Were they called Giselle when he was their lead singer, though? (Hey! Maybe that's why they kicked him out and won't let him back in! Because they wanted that name and it doesn't go with his image!)
Feb. 10th, 2009 06:43 am (UTC)
I just remembered, in Germany's Next Topmodel (with the super-annoying Heidi Klum), there was a girl named Giselle, too, and she was really stupid. Really. I'm glad I'm only watched like one episode of this, or by now I'd be suffering severe brain damage just from looking at her. Seriously.

So the answer is Yes. ;)

So after the Pants Show, Genki Dipshit doesn't have to worry about his future. Since Kenta sooo obviously will become the new Uta no Ojii... um, Onii-san. And sell higher than Heatwave. xD
Feb. 10th, 2009 07:02 am (UTC)
Heidi does Project Runway too, and I saw her in a couple of eps before I moved here. I don't remember her being anywhere near as annoying as Tyra on ANTM, but maybe Top Model calls for the hosts to be annoying. >_<

And yeah, there is no way Satoshi isn't going to become the show's Uta no Ojiiniisan. What I want to know, though, is a) what will happen to Heatwave and b) what will happen to the Pants Princess. And whether the Pants Prince really will "BE BAAACK". XD
Feb. 10th, 2009 07:18 am (UTC)
Her voice alone is like a dentist's driller in my ear!!!

I suppose Kenta won't hook up with the Pants Princess just to wreak revenge on Akane, so... (Where's my drama??? XD)
I would soo laugh if the Pants Princess went to Heatwave. xD
Feb. 10th, 2009 07:21 am (UTC)
I suppose Kenta won't hook up with the Pants Princess just to wreak revenge on Akane, so...

Oh God! That would be AWESOME! (But it would be more awesome if the Pants Princess looked the way she did in Abarenbou Mama. She was really pretty there. <3)
Feb. 10th, 2009 07:28 am (UTC)
That would be some drama, huh?
Feb. 10th, 2009 07:30 am (UTC)
Oh God. PLEASE!!!!
Feb. 10th, 2009 08:01 am (UTC)
I doubt that will happen, though. At the moment, it seems like I have more drama in real life. ^^;
Feb. 10th, 2009 08:08 am (UTC)
Is this real life drama anything you can tell me about?
Feb. 10th, 2009 08:19 am (UTC)
It is. (In fact, I guess I don't have anything I can't tell you.)

You know, it seems like there really was only one space available at Waseda. So guess on whose Most Hated Person list I am now? Uh uh...
Feb. 10th, 2009 08:27 am (UTC)
ON WHOSE Most Hated List YOU are now? YOU GOT IT AND SHE DIDN'T?!?! After she went around saying she'd got it?!?!?!! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Feb. 10th, 2009 08:32 am (UTC)
She didn't say she got it. She came to classes yesterday really sulky. (Sulkier than usual, even.) Although I think she really thought she'd got it, because she and her emo friend and spineless jerk (who thinks his Japanese is soo great, but keeps saying heeto for hito) probably think of me as a little pain in the bacl who doesn't know anything anyway. (I sooo hope she said she's been in Japan for a year before in that interview and someone asked her why her Japanese isn't better than.)

Where was I getting at? Oh, yeah. It doesn't matter for what reasons she hates me, but she has big emo friends, so if I don't reply anymore, you know they got me. xD(?) Can I laugh at this? What if they really get me??? I doubt it, but you never know.
Feb. 10th, 2009 08:42 am (UTC)
But before the interview, didn't you say that one of her friends said she'd already got it? BURN, Snotty Bitch! XD

I sooo hope she said she's been in Japan for a year before in that interview and someone asked her why her Japanese isn't better than.

I bet they did, especially if her interview was after yours. XD

Since Waseda are so coveted, I think they should supply everyone who gets in with their own hitsuji (preferably one who doesn't KEEP LOSING THEIR MASTER) to protect them. At least until they get onto the plane.
Feb. 10th, 2009 08:45 am (UTC)
Did I? That would be strange, because I can't remember anything like that.

No, she was in there before me. And double the time my interview took. O_o

I could take my blue plushy sheep with me. xD
I can has a MatsuJun butler?
Feb. 10th, 2009 08:58 am (UTC)
You said you'd told some friend or acquaintance of hers that you were trying for Waseda, and that person said "Oh, like Emily Snooty-Cow?" and said something to the effect of Emily Snooty-Cow thought she'd already got it?

Emily Snooty-Cow probably NEEDED twice the time for the parts where she had to "speak" Japanese. XD

Ooh, yes!

And I'm down with you having a MatsuJun hitsuji, because that leaves Hiro for meeeee! :D
Feb. 10th, 2009 09:18 am (UTC)
O_o No remarks about his thing this time?

My friend said "just like ESC", and then made a remark in the lines of "She's also very good, so you might have problems."

LOL She talks like a robot, btw. No emotion at all.
"Hontou desu ka? Taihen desu neeeee." I really feel how you sympathize with me. NOT.

Ah, finally subs for Love Shuffle! But I have no time... Friday, come faster!
Feb. 10th, 2009 09:25 am (UTC)
I got distracted by ESC. But OK. The reason I laughed was because I remembered that "Wow! It's not at the centre! And it's so small!" was a line in my 7th graders' speech contest script.

LOL, I really want to go over there and hear ESC speaking Japanese. Hey, JAL? Do you need translators? And do they get freebie tickets right away (or at least before ESC graduates)? I'll bake you cookies!

I'm curious about how they did with the PeniSha subs, since there was a lot of pretty complicated shit in there...
Feb. 10th, 2009 05:34 pm (UTC)
So THAT's what you were always referring to? LOL
Somehow, it really fits. Not HIS thing, but as a remark for every thing. xD

It's nothing special, you know.
Btw, today my friend told me that ESC went to the DAAD office and was all like, "my life is ruined", because she hasn't even got her 2nd or 3rd choice, but... only three months in Tsukuba. The Tsukuba she had badmouthed a lot before the interviews. "It's boring, crappy, too far from Tokyo..." Well, pride comes before a fall, right?

I must say I somehow pity her. I could have been in her shoes very easily. Actually, I think the chance was 50/50. Or as one of friends said, which pissed me off a little, "the choice was based on sympathy." Thanks for believing in my academic abilities. -_-

LOL for the dialogue! But it can't beat "Kono supuun, suteki desu ne?!"
Feb. 11th, 2009 12:27 am (UTC)
You say that now, but I bet when you see his thing you'll understand. :)

No sympathy for ESC. None whatsoever. 1. I couldn't afford to do exchanges AT ALL when I was in uni. I won one two-week scholarship, but all the other scholarships I applied for either didn't pan out or I was turned down for them (in one case I was later told that it was because it wasn't a full scholarship and I didn't have enough money.) 2. How far IS Tsukuba from Tokyo? *wikis* Ibaraki, a couple of prefectures over from Tokyo. OH NOEZ, NOT A COUPLE OF PREFECTURES AWAY FROM TOKYO!!!! Sweetie. I live in a small town in KYUSHU. If I want to go to Tokyo I have to FLY there. I do love that she wound up at the uni she bitched about, though. That's the kind of poetic justice you'd see in a good movie or drama. And I freaking LOVE that she went crying to the powers that be all "MY LIFE IS RUINED WAAH WAAH WAAH!!!" HA! Suck on that, ESC!

"the choice was based on sympathy."

Of course it was! Of course it wouldn't be based on, say, the fact that you haven't been to Japan but speak better Japanese than the bitch who spent, what, a year there? Or the fact that said level of fluency is the result of you working your ass off. Nope, must be sympathy.

You need to scan that "supuun, suteki desu ne" thing if you can. XD
Feb. 11th, 2009 03:48 pm (UTC)
I was really pissed by her saying it was all sympathy. A friend said that!

I love that when she said her life was ruined, K-sensei was all like "Ah, don't exaggerate." That man is too cool.

I know, right? I would have been happy with every scholarship they would have given me, but now I'm even happier I got the one I wanted. Being modest does have its good parts, it seems.
Feb. 12th, 2009 07:42 am (UTC)
The fuck? Is she deaf, dumb and blind?! She doesn't SERIOUSLY think ESC with her shittyass Japanese DESPITE a year in Japan would have been a better candidate?

Your teacher = WIN of the highest level. XD XD XD

And I reiterate: getting to go study in Japan = having your life ruined? Fuck, I wish someone had ruined MY life in uni!
Feb. 12th, 2009 05:28 pm (UTC)
I know. Our Japanese teachers (Japanese or not) are all pretty blunt. I like that.

Oh, of course. Cause now her snobby friends will brag her about how she got the loser university she never wanted.
I actually pitied her until today, when she and her friends sat right behind me in Japanese class and talked the WHOLE 1 1/2 hours. HELLO? It's a CLASS, not a talkshow. If I were a teacher, who would I sent to Japan - the one who pays attention or the one who talks? And uses impolite Japanese? hard choice, really.

I'll download Mei-chan no Shitsuji now and sleep for a while, as I am really tired. Tomorrow is my last test, and then I'm FREE! (Until I need to write my term papers. ^^;)
Feb. 12th, 2009 11:45 pm (UTC)
I know, right? Does she SERIOUSLY not think attitude comes into it AT ALL?! (Although I don't really pity her for getting humiliated by her snobby friends - that's what you get for being a snob and having snobby friends. Maybe it'll teach her a bit of humility. Or maybe I've been reading too many Sweet Valley High books and watching too many Jdramas.)
Feb. 12th, 2009 11:52 pm (UTC)
Maybe someone should send her to St. Lucia - no butler, though. xD

I am STILL downloading episode 5. I screencapped the sheep bulb in ep 4, but couldn't insert it in my post. ;_;
Feb. 12th, 2009 11:57 pm (UTC)
I know, right! XD She'd fit RIGHT in.
Feb. 12th, 2009 11:58 pm (UTC)
One more bitch. Yay.
You know, if I was Makino Tsukushi, she would be the head of the lilies and Doumyouji would be Waseda. Okay, strange example. xD
Feb. 13th, 2009 02:18 am (UTC)
Waseda has a small penis that hangs to the left? The more you know...
Feb. 13th, 2009 02:08 pm (UTC)
Could you stop that? I nearly choked on my biscuit!
Feb. 13th, 2009 02:15 pm (UTC)
So I shouldn't use this icon if you complain that Waseda works you too hard, then? :P
Feb. 13th, 2009 02:26 pm (UTC)
Feb. 13th, 2009 03:07 pm (UTC)
Btw, I am currently filling our forms etc. and found this very interesting:

# Students must have demonstrated excellent academic and PERSONAL records at their universities.
Academic records of all courses, not only Japanese language, will be taken into consideration.

# Students must have strong MOTIVATION to learn Japanese.
Japanese language proficiency is not necessarily required.

So it was not sympathy, but my personality, right? And my motivation. Ha!
Feb. 13th, 2009 03:29 pm (UTC)

*takes breath*


Oh, ESC. All that...um, whatever she was doing that made her think she'd get it, only to be tripped up by Waseda wanting someone WHO GIVES A RAT'S ASS AND ISN'T A BRAT. Poor ESC. Except, not.
Feb. 13th, 2009 03:35 pm (UTC)
Take a look at my latest entry. It's like OMG.
Feb. 10th, 2009 06:20 pm (UTC)
As for the subs, I couldn't keep myself from watching PeniSha ep 1.
The translation is okay so far, I've seen worse, but their English is........
Like "Jisatsu, kanojo wa?", which was translated into "She was suicide?" Ouch.
Feb. 11th, 2009 12:31 am (UTC)
We need to incorporate that into our daily conversations. Like, "God, today's class with Quirrell was worse than usual. I was suicide."
Feb. 11th, 2009 03:46 pm (UTC)
We so have to.
Today, the train was interrupted three times. I was sooo suicide!
Feb. 10th, 2009 06:57 pm (UTC)
O_O The Pants Prince is the detective in 33 pun Tantei??? I didn't recognize him AT ALL.

And Urara is Katase Nana? No wonder she can sing. O_o
Feb. 11th, 2009 12:32 am (UTC)
Pants Princess is a singer too?
Feb. 11th, 2009 03:45 pm (UTC)
Katase Nana? I thought so.
