Title: Aiko and Megu

Good mornooning It’s Moa.
We came back safely to Japan finishing New York and London concerts!!
This time again, Moa could have wonderful times. I’m very thankful for everything
While we went to extracurricullar activity, there were a three-day weekend in Japan. And unusually, there were no Sakura activity in the weekend. So, Sakura members could have time to do something they wanted, or could have rest. Good for them! Moa feels we need some me-time — playing with friends, doing hobbies, studying and doing nothing but rest — to improve ourselves!!
THEREFORE…Please give us some holidays again. lol

Well, this time Moa write about Aiko & Megu!!
Like MoaYui in Sakura Gakuin, or Yuimetal & Moametal in BABYMETAL, Aiko and Megu sometimes are grouped into one pair.

Moa and Yui joined Sakura at the same time and are the same age. So, we have been looked as a pair or have been compared our differences so often. Moa sometimes wondered why so many people didn’t look Moa as a single person. Moa hated to be regarded as a pair when Moa was 1st grade in middle school and said by teachers and a make-up artist to be “chuunibyou”. lol

【Chuunibyou (中二病), or “Middle-school 2nd Year Syndrome”, is a colloquial and rather derisive term in Japan which describes a person at the age of fourteen would either act like a know-it-all adult, or thinks they have special powers no one else has. Some would even go as far as being obnoxious, arrogant, and often look down on adults or older people. This way of thinking or acting is mostly seen in teenagers during adolescence, however there are people who still act like this even after reaching adulthood.
Chuunibyou uses the word “病” for “syndrome” or “disease” but it does not actually relate to any medical condition or mental disorder. It can also be written as 厨二病 in Japanese, where “厨” means “-fag” in net slang. In English it is often abbreviated as chuu2. (– from pixiv dictionary)】

Aiko and Megu are not in the state of chuunibyou yet. They make a lot of noise and have many quarrels — how vigorous and boisterous they are!

Moa also had been said by elder members “Moa is so vigourous♪” or “Moa, you are really free spirit♫”. But, Moa feel they have more energy than Moa had in those days!!

Both Aiko and Megu are smart. They are good in study in school. And , if you look at them one by one, their personalities are different.
Aiko is straightforward, and is like a cute puppy Megu is generous and easygoing.
But, when they are together, Moa feels they are similar in many characters. It’s mysterious!!

10418252_1573885162834509_2343447278262318860_n

Aiko joined Sakura one year earlier than Megu. And Aiko ‘put on a senpai-air’ to Megu【means Aiko act like a senpai–like a boss】. Aiko put on a senpai-air even to Sara –Sara is a year older than Aiko! lol Aiko is very willing to teach something to kouhais(=juniors, in this context, members who joined Sakura later). It’s fun to see ‘Teacher Aiko’ make a mistake or, try to teach but Aiko herself can’t do it.
Most of Sakura girls have similar experiences (try to teach and fail. or vice versa) and seeing such Aiko make us smile. Aiko is faithful. Aiko comes all the way from Kagoshima and it must be very tough, but she is always positive and cheerful. And Moa love Aiko sing!! I’m really looking forward to seeing Aiko’s improvement♫

Megu changes completely on the stage!! Megu can sense what is expected from her and can respond quickly.
The other day, Megu sent Moa an E-mail. It said “Moa-chan, do you have anything you can’t do well and don’t know what to do?” When Moa was in elementary school, there was nothing which bother me as for the Sakura works. Moa had been acting as Moa liked, wondering nothing, just enjoying the works. But Megu is already thinking more than just enjoying herself!! Megu is thinkng how to send our love to Fukei-sans In the E-mail, Megu also said, “Megu is likely to be too greedy on the stage…How can I act more naturally”
…OMG, Megu is extraoridinary!! Moa respect Megu who can think over and can point out her problem by herself
Moa replied to the E-mail “While Megu is in elementary school, you can enjoy yourself freely! But Megu is thinking how to improve yourself. Well done Megu” Megu is full of spirit to entertain people and try to do very best on the stage. How adorable Megu is!

1972418_1573885249501167_199721413144284460_n

On open school events the other day, in which Aiko and Megu were separated to other class. And Aiko said “Without Megu, I feel something is missing…” Soooo cute Aiko is!! They are a pair after all!!
♪The two of us have the faces of rivals and close friends♪
Aiko and Megu…they are in really good relations, Moa think
Maybe, they will grow up bigger than MoaYui. (or already they are?)

Now, Moa think of the name of the (would be)unit!

Aiko愛子 and Megumi愛 make “Love×2” 【愛 means Love】
Call them “LoveLove” Doesn’t it sound good? (self-praise)
Or…”Megu ri Ai” 【Meguriai means ‘meeting with long-separated beloved one’ or ‘meeting with the one having been seeking’ 】
Ah…this sounds like enka. lol 【enka is a Japanese traditional love-ballads】
Fukei-sans, Please cherish Aiko and Megu’s growth with Moa.

Five moments that differentiated BABYMETAL as what it is today

Prologue: To the Metal Resistance

Many reactions, reviews and news have been issued about BABYMETAL. Many of those referred to their forming as an Idol unit, their ignorance of Heavy Metal before the beginning, their going viral with Gimme Chocolate MV, and their successful performance at a main stage of Sonisphere festival.

But how many people know what happened between these moments? Everything has a chain of cause-and-result cycles. The same does to BABYMETAL. Here reviews a series of five critical moments from its birth to date that became causes/results made them what they are now.

1. Kobametal the producer found the way to shine Suzuka Nakamoto aka Su-metal, the talented lead vocalist most

Suzuka Nakamoto has been in show biz over 10 years even she’s 16 now. She’s said to have been always recognized as special talent and had already proved her powerful and distinctive voice and live performance skill when she was ten as a member of Karen Girl’s, one-year-only idol group act. They fired up an arena with 10,000 audiences by their performance. When the group disbanded as planned in 2009, her bright future was promised as an idol singer in Japan.

Doko_prelude_01

But her voice and dance was just out of standard from Japanese idol, even too powerful and straight. The fact that her office Amuse didn’t promote her like that was the proof of it. Here was the one who worked at the office. His name was Key Kobayashi – future Kobametal the producer.

Key was decades-long fan of Heavy Metal, had experience on PR and an administrative job of some rock bands back then. He thought carefully about the best way for Suzuka to make full potential of her unique talent of singing and dancing out to the world. He saw her as a limitless type of performer. She said by herself that she didn’t remember anything when she’s in the zone on stage. And everyone saw her hit unexpected quality in singing and dancing.

An idea finally hit the man that a speed and loudness of Heavy Metal was the answer that could bring chemistry with Suzuka’s full power. At the same time he went to Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, US to see Japanese Metal band X Japan performing. He saw many people there finally jumping around here and there along with its Japanese-lyrics song with their X-shaped arms high up to the sky, even hard-looking reggae guy.

He felt confident in these jumping clouds that Japanese heavy music could transcend a border of languages, nationalities and music preferences to touch and move people who even didn’t understand Japanese at all.
So he was sure he could make it by blending two powerful weapons together – one was Suzuka Nakamoto the quality-proven performer and the other was heavy music, his lifetime devotion and profession.

2. BABYMETAL was formed with twins-like enchanting girls Yui Mizuno and Moa Kikuchi with Suzuka

Suzuka was a powerful asset but she’s so distinctive by any means. Also in Japan a solo idol became out of fashion. So he thought to add partners to her but at the same time standard girls’ group format didn’t seem to work. In the recruiting period, he wanted a feel of little twins dancing around of Suzuka like former famous twins idol The Peanuts signing for Mothra, and finally Yui and Moa caught his eye.

960183_247226392095356_258679653_n

Both of them were eleven years old, almost identical outfit like twins also had years of experience of CMs, fashion shows and stages at the time. The miracle was that those twins-like two girls were in the same office along with Suzuka. The two are becoming less identical now but they kept almost identical like twins in years.
Both of them easily cleared average qualities in performing, but each of them have different strong points. Yui is good at dancing and more modest and Moa is good at charming and communicative type. And Suzuka is also well known as gno-brainerh type of person at her own pace. They are capable also professional, synchronized also complementary like a stable triangle.

3. BABYMETAL came with a unique and quality coupling of Heavy Metal sound, J-pop melody, dynamic dance and Idol appearance by their debut song Doki Doki Morning

Doki Doki Morning was released on 2011/10/24 from Juuonbu Records label that was just built for BABYMETAL only. Juuonbu means a heavy music club that is a name of a subsidiary of Sakura Gakuin that is an idol academy in their office, Amuse Inc. The song is catchy J-Pop number with cute choreography of three little girls, but once you listen to its instrumental version you’ll find how heavy its sound really is. It uses some of PANTERA drum sounds (how many other girls’ groups use sounds from PANTERA?)

1a110300

It didn’t become a big hit but it could make BABYMETAL survive, and it set the tone of its sound since then – brutality of Heavy Metal and catchiness of J-Music with complexity of Idol song. Japanese Idol song is even chaotic. It can allow almost anything under the name of Kawaii girls. Many music talents from other genres have come to the genre and create vast range of songs, and it became like a meta-genre that holds a lot of genres underneath because it would be said that music industry has been shrunken much in Japan and Idol is now the only genre that generates enough sales to be able to sustain Japanese music industry.

In fact, there have been a lot of songs of Idols with heavy taste and Heavy Metal bands with cute girls in Japan. But the genius of Key and greatness of the girls are that they never accept BABYMETAL to stay just a taste but challenge to be a real thing. Their Heavy Metal sound is real. So is their Pop melody, choreography, Idol charisma, Suzuka’s voice and Yui and Moa’s cuteness, too. That makes the difference. You can tell by yourselves and those who came to see them live left their comments that even metalheads in decades really enjoyed their performance, held their breaths away by Su-metal’s voice and melt their hearts by Yui and Moa’s cuteness. And to our surprise their performances seem to keep improving from comments and reviews.

4. BABYMETAL made a successful first appearance to a big rock festival, Summer Sonic with the youngest performer record

Summer Sonic is a big rock festival in Japan with a long history since 2000 which now hosts over 120,000 audiences in two days. Its headliners were big names like Green Day, Marilyn Manson, Guns N’ Roses, Oasis, Linkin Park, Metallica, Stevie Wonder and more.
BABYMETAL appeared there in 2012 by invitation from its host which saw BABYMETAL as something new with potential though they had only 5 songs, released only 3 singles and no album and little appearance on TV and magazine back then. They played at sub stage rather small. But it was their first exposure to many non-Idol fans, musicians and persons in music industry and media of broader music genres.

original1

The band got into the second level from the performance. They didn’t play at small event space anymore, held first solo live with 1,300 audiences and did first performance abroad in Singapore. And these lead them to their major debut and to their back band, Kami Band.

5. BABYMETAL acquired authentic Heavy Metal feel with their major debut song Ijime, Dame, Zettai and introduced Kami Band as a back band in their live

And early in 2013 their major debut came with Ijime, Dame, Zettai. It was actually their second song, but it was their fourth single. It might be that Kobametal kept waiting for the release until the time came. It was a straight and strong power metal number with well-structured melody line that could maximize power of Su-metal’s power with impressive shredding guitar solo and endless twin bass drum roams.

Kobametal said that he “thought it’s time for a fast ball hard enough to surprise metalheads,” and they won the bet. He “finally got some credit to talk with metalheads,” and it earned “pretty good sales figure. The CD sales kept its moment long in the front of stores.”

And at the same time, he made a decision to introduce live back band into their stage performances. BABYMETAL had played with pre-recorded track till the period. Despite of financial and temporal cost, the back band could improve their live performance a lot. And it needs mentioning to the quality of these band players.

Doko_prelude_07

It’s named as Kami Band. Kami is a word that refers to god. All the member deserve the name because every one of them is regarded as top notch musician in Japan. But why these best of the best join to this three-piece idol girls’ unit? They are the ones who never be pressed for good offers. More money? Maybe. A pressure of big music agency? Maybe.
But some of them said playing in BABYMETAL behind of these hard-working talented girls and trying different types of well-produced music are just so much fun also challenging. Also they said they felt confident that BABYMETAL was going to be something before it became as it is now. They even said these girls were so professional enough to respect as a musician. They are all top notch performers. Both the girls and the band. And here would be chemistry between them. So is there any reason that BABYMETAL is NOT going to be a real thing in the world?

Epilogue: The Metal Resistance is going on

So these are critical moments that BABYMETAL has had until it became the Internet viral with Gimme Chocolate. Maybe many of you know what happened after the song. And I want to say. The song IS – or was – viral. It is watched over 17,000,000 times from last April on YouTube. Some said it’s another WTF thing from Japan. Yes it’s very different from American or Europian Pop, Heavy Metal or any other music. It might have surprised tons of people in the world in various senses.

BABYMETAL-at-HEAVY-MONTREAL

But is BABYMETAL itself just a viral in the Internet? Three months later when BABYMETAL appeared into curios eyes from 60,000 people and left from a main stage of Sonisphere with great amount of applause under the opening-up UK sky on July 5, audiences there and so many other people in the world who watched it via YouTube later would have felt that BABYMETAL was something in the real world. Or anything different with potential to the future.
Now they just closed the Metal Resistance Episode II with live performances in Japan, Germany, France, UK and US. Audiences and media people from various countries felt their performance live by their own eyes, ears and hearts. They must have felt BABYMETAL was not another WTF from Japan but something new that can deliver quality experiences that  can trancend borders of languages, nationalities and music preferences to touch and move people who even didn’t understand Japanese at all. And BABYMETAL declared the beginning of Metal Resistance Episode III from O2 Academy, Brixton in UK.
We don’t know what it is yet. But whatever it will be we already know this will come next year with quality. It will come. We will see it before long.

From Talk Chairman Yunano,
The theme for self introduction today was “Your uneasy subject and weak subject in test”.
At that time,
Sakura Gakuin members was proud with the points they score,
But Moa did not think like that at that time.
Can I brag a little here?
I will do that even you say cannot~~~ (laughs)

Actually for Moa,
the result when middle school year 1 is (three 5, five 4) (5 is full mark)
It was a pretty good result.
(I talked on the radio, so did you know right?)
From that time, the result gradually decreases ….
But, the result was maintain at middle to upper middle up until now.
Oh dear, it’s too ordinary and boring result

But you know! But you know! !
I did the National academic and learning Investigation test in the first semester!!
And the result had coming out.
the test difficulty for National academic and learning Investigation test is not different depending on the school in Japan,
It is the test to get know how much is your academic ability, and your grasp.

In that test,
I get 30 right answer over 32 question in Japanese language A~
(National average is 24.5)
And I get 8 right answer over 9 question in Japanese language B~
(National average is 4.6)
As a Japanese,
The people with confidence in national language can communicate well about feeling and thought,
I want to continue to grow every day! !

To taking care of both work and study is tough,
But I wont lose!
I hope it can be deliver to everyone in Sakura Gakuin~

Moa new diary 2014-09-22

Good Mornooning
It’s Moa
Everyone, do you ike sleeping???
I love sleeping very much !!
But I don’t like bedtime (sweat)
The feels like “It may have something else fun to do”,
or no longer want to sleep because feeling wasteful to sleep like that…
But, If I fall asleep,
I cannot get up even if you wake me up because I want to sleep more.

Moa Kikuchi

I sleep together with Yui in the same room during sleepover for BABYMETAL activities.
Since that the case of Su-chan sleep alone is increased,
I will become trouble when I (who cannot sleep alone) cannot sleep together with Yui…
Yui and me will have quite a bad mood in the morning.
Even though we are very close in the night,
But we get dressed without talking in the morning.
After a while when our stomach starts to move,
Both of us will return as usual.
We both say that we like our good relation which allow us to be in bad mood ★

For Moa,
There is something I will always bring together when going to a long trip!
That is, the white sesame color stuffed seal – Shirotan,
and stuffed monkey – Monchan! ! !
Monchan is the guardian to stand watch the luggage in suitcase,
While Shirotan will be the my pillow in Airplane and Shinkansen.
It just good to placed on shoulder and leaning on it,
And also hug it.
I always keep it like that when I bring Shirotan,
(refer picture in the comment)
Isn’t it super kawaii??
Kya~
Kawaii uhuhu (laughs)
and hey,
Is that members of Sakura Gakuin particular about the pillow??
And what kind of the pillow they are using???

Everyone told me that “You shrunk in height ?!?!” ~~~~ (Sweat)
Even Yui who always together with me told that “Huh? Do we have height different like this? ” (laughs)
