I feel like a lot of the Masters were compete opposites of their idol counterparts--the Makotos, the Chihayas, the Amis, the Ritsukos, even the Azusas! But they fit together well. As evidenced by Doppelgangers!. Not that anyone but you and me know what that is. XD

But the Chihayas are not complete opposites! There were a lot of hints at Chihaya-Master in SPs.








Now try to guess right answer:




Producing Chihaya, I had the feeling that all the choices cold be divided on three groups: an answer Haruka-Master would give (bad), an answer Yukiho-Master would give (normal), and THE RIGHT ONE.





In addition, there was an "Image change" communication. According to it, the best new image for Chihaya would be... an arrogant one.

They may have similar goals, but when watching the series I felt the Chihayas were polar opposites in terms of personality. While Chihaya is calm, mellow, somewhat distant, and a bit cold at times, she genuinely cares about all the people around her and is able to show a soft side to more than just a select handful of people. Xenoglossia Chihaya, on the other hand, came across as rude, haughty, cruel, and almost plain psychotic. She was only able to show her smile to a select few people. In addition, Chihaya is putting in long hours of hard work as an idol to try to achieve her dream, while Xenoglossia Chihaya is perfectly willing to take a violent and destructive path to getting Imber. I just felt that they weren't all that similar.
It's the same with all the pairs I mentioned--while they may have elements that are similar, in terms of personality, they're quite opposite. Yukihos are another one.

That seems about right.  8)

I think what makes two Chihayas different is their childhood. While Chihaya-idol was enjoying a happy life with her real family, Chihaya-Master suffered from terrible experiments done by her adopt parrents. No one loved her, no one respected her, so Imber was everything she had. it is not inconceivable that Azusa and Chihaya were raised separately after Chihaya's first meeting with Imber. I think Azusa found Chihaya later and told her she was her sister just for both of them not being lonely.

In all other aspects, however, the Chihayas are very similar: both of them are serious and dedicated to their goals, knowing wery little about anything else. An example of Chihaya-Master can be the second CD-Drama, where she should have been Riffa's partner in the opening talk, but she almost didn't talk. :(  In the end of the track, however, she suddenly decided to declare the title of the drama, while Binetsu S. O. S. was playing, but she messed everything up! ;D  Chihaya-Master must have been very embarrassed! ;D  I won't be surprised if she doesn't know how to write and send an sms!

And... here is my last argument! 8)

I can see what you mean, but I stand by my argument. I dunno, they have similar aspects, but like I said, or the most part I think their personalities were polar opposites. Cold, distant, yet kind and caring Chihaya, and rude, haughty, violent, and greedy XenoChihaya.
But yes, I can definitely see why you think they are similar. ^^


ONWARDS, AOSHIMA!!!

Cutest? I have to say Rie Kugimiya.
But Nagi Yanagi is the best singer alive.

You probably know something about the Makotos that I can't even imagine! :)

I think nagiyanagi is the cutiest, this song is perfect match for her voice. Can you recommend me more cute songs by her?

I probably do, I paid WAY too close attention to everything Makoto in that series. In both series. I love her. <3 XD

Feel So Good is a good song by her. Not exactly "cute", but it's jazzy and really nice. One of the songs she did with Supercell. :3 Aside from that one, she doesn't seem to do many cute songs that I know of, but she covered Vocaloid songs like Last Night, Good Night, and some other really nice songs including Blindness and Sacrifice (which convinced me that she NEEDS to be a voice actress).

So do I for both Chihayas! ;)

Speaking of Makoto-idol, yanaginagi sang Swallowtail Butterfly~Ai no uta~ too, so you can compare them! ;)

Together we are the "I Know Everything About My Favorite Idol Ahaha~ <3 Club"!

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO CHOOSE DX
But seriously, Nagi is my favorite singer ever and Hiromi Hirata is a very close second place, so that's like asking me to choose between PB&J and burgers. I just can't. XD

Except, honestly, I think Makoto sang it better. She just has so much emotion in that song. It's so...beautiful. <3
Nagi just sounded a bit too...soft, almost?

Hmm...I liked both of them equally in Nagisa no CHERRY, but I did like Erena Ono's First Love more. It was a little prettier. :3
That song's really pretty, by the way. First Love, that is.

I have watched the 6th Stage of AKB48's Team A, "Mokugekisha". Well... I should have checked all the songs in this setlist before watching... :( I liked only 9 songs out of 17! :(  They are: "Mokugekisha", "Akogare no POP STAR", "Itoshisa no accel", "Hoshi no mukougawa", "Utsukushiki mono", "Inochi no imi", "I'M CRYING", "Zutto zutto" and "PIONEER".

The first perfomance of this Stage (2010.07.27) that I watched:

Lyrics:

Studio recordings:
http://www.xiami.com/album/404364

"Mokugekisha" and "PIONEER" are missing on Xiami, but I have found them on YouTube:

What do you think?
