44. What do you think is the best in the fandom? And do you think there is any bad sides in it?
In the 48fandom, The other fans can be really supportive, and I'm really thankful for that!! There's also many fans I can talk crap with, be delusional with and just talk all the nonsense in the world. It really puts me at ease :)

Yeahh when some of the older fans begin acting all elitist on you. That and with the newer fans...some who simply don't think before they say anything. Oh and fandom wars...It sure happens in every fandom though. Every fandom has its good and bad...But I'm gonna say for sure I feel a lot more comfortable in this fandom as compared to my previous AAA fandom. Things there just has gone so messed up.

42. What would you want to say to your oshimen?
Well I just want to continue giving her words of support and maybe, "Can we be friends?" or "Remember me? The fan from Malaysia?"
Heheh! Since we're both girls and we are the same age xD
And since I've met her once before.

43. Have you met the members or been to a concert? How was it?
Yess!! I went for AKB48 2nd Stage in Singapore and NMB48's 1st Stage in Singapore as well!!
Well for AKB it was mixed team, and for NMB, it was Team N.
Both the experiences were really amazing!! I had a lot of fun!! Not only did I go for concert, I got to handshake with the girls after the concert too ;)
I got to share some of my love to the girls as well as spam my country (Malaysia). LOL.

29. Favorite single release? A single that left you impression as whole.
Good question...my favourite single release up to date is probably NMB48's Nagiichi!! Not really cause of the A-side, but I love all the songs in the single. The B-sides especially Saigo no Catharsis and Boku ga Mou Sukoshi Daitan nara are particularly good!! ^_^
If it's the single/ A-side that left the biggest impression on me...it's NMB's Junjou U-19. I mean TETSU NO PANTSU XD

30. Favorite album/stage album release?
K3! It is my favourite stage after all!

31. Favorite 48 related variety TV show?
Naniwa Nadeshiko and Star Hime Sagashi Tarou were the best ever but they don't show anymore :(

32. Favorite 48 related drama?
Majisuka Gakuen (Mostly for Yuko and Gekikara. heck yeahh)
Oh does Yuko in Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Riyuu count?? Cause I really enjoyed that XD

33. Your favorite PV?
I'm really NMB biased...so...Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo. I loved the traditional elements in that PV and the transitions :)

24. First stage you watched and your current favorite stage?
AKB48 Team K 4th Stage: Saishuu Bell ga Naru is the first stage I watched ^_^
AKB48 Team K 3rd Stage: Nounai Paradise is my current favourite stage.
Love all the songs and the spirit of Original Team K!! ^_^

25. Favorite stage unit?
N2 - Blue Rose (Yamamoto Sayaka, Ogasawara Mayu, Kishino Rika, Fukumoto Aina)
Although lots of people may favour the original version with Akimoto Sayaka, Masuda Yuka, Ohori Megumi and Miyazawa Sae cause well the power vocals of Sayaka x Yuttan I admit is a lot stronger than Sayanee x Maachun. However in Team N's version, I felt all 4 girls had vocals that could blend in a lot better as compared to the original. This also happens to be my 4 favourite vocals in Team N...and Rikanyan x Ainyan especially have vocals that complement each other well. When they sing in unison, everyone sounds good too...and of course my weakness for Sayanee...she's sooo kakkoi in Blue Rose. My decision for this was also affected probably cause I got to see this being performed live in Singapore. haha.

26. Favorite live performance of a song?
Oh My God! - NMB48
After seeing the girls perform this in Singapore, I really really love it LIVE!! It's just amazing...the atmosphere, the energy and the cute choreography...This song really grows on you...especially after you've seen it being performed live, you'll love it!! It really makes you hyped up for more and more.

27. Favorite concert?
NMB48 1st Anniversary Special Live
Yess I really do love NMB, and I thought this concert was really great!! Some of the shuffles were a little =X
But mostly, it was a really good effort by the girls...I wish I could go to such a concert one day live!

28. Favorite photobook release?
I haven't really seen much...but probably Oshima Yuko's PB?
It looked pretty good and had some variety :3
If Yamamoto Sayaka ever releases a PB, the answer for this will probably be her :P

Lols I'm horrible at doing this XD For each question here, I'll do one each for AKB48, SKE48, SDN48 and NMB48 respectively xD

12. Favorite a-side from a single?
(a) AKB48 - Yuuhi wo Miteiruka?
Campfire song!! That's the feel I get from this song!! <3
Being a sucker for reminiscent, heartwarming songs, this song slowly made its way up my favourite song list. lol.
Classic AKB really 8D

(b) SKE48 - Banzai Venus
Ironically, I did not like this song when I first got into the 48Family. But now I am absolutely loving it. I don;t know but when I think of Nagoya, this is the first song that comes to mind. haha. maybe cause of the PV where they dance with the crowd on the streets. Haha it's pretty cool!! Energy of this is great too and if there's one song that I feel represents SKE48 best, it's this song xD

(c) SDN48 - Makeoshimi Congratulations
Yes yes, SDN's graduation song :(
So I know this song is completely different from their usual style, but tbh, I am normally not a huge fan of SDN single A-sides maybe except for their very last 2 singles.
And this song just has that beautiful bittersweet touch which I love and it's sang with some real nice, strong, powerful voices too. The song really is beautiful and meaningful. Really pulled off the reminiscent sweet feel really well with flawless vocals. I couldn't ask for more xD

(d) NMB48 - Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo
NMB48's debut song is still their most powerful A-side imo up-to-date. I mean I have loved every NMB A-side so far, and they all have their special standout point but this single was what started off NMB with a bang, showing they're here to stay. I think this song spoke very well of NMB's identity and background (no not as extinct black-haired girls) but it demonstrated the deep, strong heritage rooted in Namba, Osaka, where they are based or even the Kansai region which is rich in history and culture. This song presented those aspects really well and this song is bound to be a NMB trademark for awhile ;)


13. Favorite b-side from a single?
(a) AKB48 - Hikoukigumo
So this song is also from a stage, but it's also a B-side for RIVER.  I really began loving this song too when I got to watch it being performed live when I went for an AKB stage in Singapore. Seriously, there's no better way to end a concert with a song like this!! Now whenever I hear this song, first I'll remember my sweet memories from that particular AKB stage as well as recall all the bittersweet moments in my life. I love songs that evoke that kind of feeling XD

(b) SKE48 - Kamoku no Tsuki (Selection 8)
This song kinda reminds me of Yuuhi, but I do feel it has its own value. The sort of song I would want to listen to after a longgg day. The sort of song that would relax me and put a smile on my face. Yes, I think you might have noticed what kinda songs I have a weakness for XD

(c) SDN48 - Owaranai Encore
Yess from the graduation single agaiin XD
I have a terrible weakness for sentimental stuff, so this got me immediately.
It's such a sweet goodbye song, I cannot help but love it seriously <3

(d) NMB48 - Mikazuki no Senaka
This song is really inspirational, the lyrics lol. Not only that, I think the melody is very uplifting and encouraging too.
And especially after watching the girls perform this at their 1st anniversary, their passion and love to be on stage could just be felt so strongly. It really increased my appreciation for this song. I really expect this to be a sweet, heartwarming song for the girls in NMB48 to sing in years to come as a step to their future even when they're gonna graduate. I don't know...this song just means so much to me, really <3


14. Favorite stage and/or album song?
Favourite AKB48 album song - Shoujotachi yo
Similar to Mikazuki, this is also a very uplifting tune, something the girls sing to remind them to go all out in achieving their dreams. I just really like the meaning behind the song...I believe God has a plan for everyone, and perhaps, things may seem bleak now, but it's something you yourself have to really believe in. As the song says, do your best and just believe. That's all you can do for now. I am sure everyone can reach their dreams one day if they stay persistent. Sometimes there's not just one way to achieve a dream. It's important to consider all the possibilities too. I feel motivated from listening to this song! ;)

Favourite stage songs
(a) AKB48
(i) AKB48 Team A - Rider (A3)

I love this songgg so muchh!! Seriously, I think Team N performing it revived my love for this song even more especially with Ainyan's smile. But apart from that, I love how much meaning this song carries. It's such a bittersweet song dedicated to an oldtime AKB fan from the early days who had passed on...It's really nice they dedicated a song to him that way. This song totally wins for Team A. Original Team A's best song imo.

(ii) AKB48 Team K - Sougen no Kiseki (K3)
Like some Ori Team K members have said themselves, Sougen no Kiseki has a very K-like feeling. Original Team K were the best AKB team for me because of the bond they shared, the moments they went through...their friendship is just so real, so genunine, so beautiful!! Everytime I see them reunite and perform this song, I feel so moved!! Again, I love sentimental songs sooo much!! <3

(iii) AKB48 Team B - Futari Nori no Jitensha (B3)
It was actually quite hard for me to pick a Team B song...it appears I like more Team B songs than I thought ahha. But I picked this in the end because I liked the guitar in it. And it had a nice bittersweet feel too. I think the elements of the song just really worked for me. Haha.Especially the guitar, it was soo boss!!

And yeahh from the AKB list, I do really think the best AKB songs came from the Original teams. XD
I really must have something for the number 3 xD

(b) SKE48
(i) SKE48 Team S - Mangekyou (S3)
This song is beautiful, just simply beautiful!! <3
It's so sad that 2/5 of these girls, Haruka and Yuimin have left SKE =(
But this song is soooo sooo goood!! The vocals are great, the melody is really nice to my ears, it's actually one of my favourite 48songs now. This is not only my favourite S song...it's my favourite SKE song tbh. I like it that much lol.

(ii) SKE48 Team KII - 16 Shoku no Yume Crayon (KII3)
I know lots of people compared this to Wasshoi B...I lvoe wasshoi B too but honestly, I think this song worked even better in showing off the KII girls' individuality. I really got this feeling of despite how different they are, they can go out there and produce something amazing. That's what Team KII is about for me. And I thought this song demonstrated it so well especially through lives. Just such a fun team song, it'll be great if N got a song like this for N3 too...but then it'll get repetitive so...lol I guess maybe not? haha. But yeahh this song is great :3

(c) SDN48 - Yuuwaku no Garter (SDN 1)
This song is just hottt!!! The song has great vocals and the performance is just stunning!! Also the stage name for SDN 1. My SDN oshi, Kato Mami, who is the middle girl here...I grew to love her from this song. Just a fierce, sexy, alluring song...especially in lives, executed in perfection by Mamitan, Yukarin and Akita Kazue. ;)

(d) NMB48 Team N - Bird (N1/A3)
Team N at this point doesn't have an original stage yet, but N3 is gonna start staging soon...but for now...this Bird rendition led by my oshi, Yamamoto Sayaka, deserves a special mention. I mean this song was always just okay for me...until I heard Sayanee belt out her vocals in it. Sayanee never ceases to amaze me with what she can do with a song with her superb vocal control. So crisp, so clear and the song was like it was made for her! O.O
Sorry Takamina but you got outsang XD
Ohh and Rikanyan's great in this too!!! Definitely giving her props for that too :P
