Seriously, it hurt so much to see Miichan in this condition. I think this is the first time she cut her hair. Well, congrats to Shunkan Bunshun for destroying her and Masuda Yuka's career in just a few months. And to think that Miichan is 1st generation member! T-T But at least she didn't graduate.... Miichan's fans, show your love to her in the next election!

Edit: Okay, I think this is too sweet to be ignored. 1st generation member (minus Kojima Haruna). Even Acchan's there! Apparently, Takamina also cut her hair (It is far more shorter than when she get haircut because her hair burned). Not sure about Acchan though, because I think she wear extension before, so I don't know her original hair length From Itano Tomomi's twitter

Well the good news is she is one of the rare people who can pull off such short hair. She looks alienesque, in a good way.

She kinds reminds me of one of the members of Orange Range.

Japanese intertainment industry is so scary like seriously, I can't stand to see Miichan in that video.

Poor girl.
ilikedjibouti 31st-Jan-2013 12:10 pm (UTC)
I can guess what movie she has watched recently.
aku_rin 31st-Jan-2013 12:12 pm (UTC)
Seriously, WTF?
I have no idea of who she is but her message is heartbreaking.
This is pure bullying. Vile. Degrading.
I had no interest in this kind of groups before, and after seeing this, I will just get bad feelings every time I see anything regarding them.

I just hope that there was REALLY something between Alan and her besides being friends, otherwise all this is too much just because wotas imagine the worst. Also if there was something between them, I hope Alan was serious about it and is now consoling her in private over text or calls...(unless their agencies are banning any interaction). I don't know much about the guy but I hope he's not the playboy kind who drops her like a hot potato the moment he sees that she's now bald.

I was thinking about this as well...but I wonder if she is going to cut ties, since she's the one in trouble and the one that feels as a senior she should have behaved and stuff. If she does that then it's really sad.
askbask 31st-Jan-2013 12:14 pm (UTC)
Fucking disgusting. Whether she shaved her head on her own accord or not, she's paraded around here, it's part of the pillory that forms this video and announcement - a public humiliation of a woman who did nothing wrong, contract or no contract, a systematic misogynist approval of disturbed possessive attitudes where girls are disgraced in the worst fashion for implied slutty behavior.

The Shunkan Bunshun ruined her career? I don't see this ruining anyone's career outside of these mental institutions with their codec of behavior pandoring to delusional fans. Sickening.
momoiro71 31st-Jan-2013 12:21 pm (UTC)
THIS.

It's really disgusting, seriously.
kurakura_chan 31st-Jan-2013 12:21 pm (UTC)
seriously?! seriouslyyyyyyy...
poor mi-chan ;________;

Alan's agency is saying they're just close friends: http://www.oricon.co.jp/news/entertainment/2021212/full/

Someone should have taken a leaf from LDH's book. AKS could have really said, she was getting dance lessons or something.
thewarpedmelody 31st-Jan-2013 12:40 pm (UTC)
LOL "Dance Lessons"

Does HIRO actually cares about this kind of relationship issues?
lady_mercury 31st-Jan-2013 12:30 pm (UTC)
This is fucking disgusting.
ryusa5 31st-Jan-2013 12:30 pm (UTC)
I feel so sorry for her,she looks devastated in the video

and once again the girl is the only one 'punished' in this sort of cases
in fact it probably serves as free promotion in Alan's case cuz the scandal was released in the same day his group released their 2'nd single

ohprecioustime 31st-Jan-2013 12:58 pm (UTC)
stops being an AKB fan....now

this is too much,cannot support this type of cray cray


(still gonna listen to them lbr their shit is catchy but buy, nope)
angelica28 31st-Jan-2013 01:05 pm (UTC)
WTH is that!!!
she saved her hair because of that..that crazy realy
i know in japan or other countries may do that when you regret something you did but this a lot for me is like abuse..poor girl!!!
lilly0 31st-Jan-2013 01:08 pm (UTC)
Wow, public humilation at its best. What comes next? A public whipping?
They are clearly making an example of her - it's so disgusting, really. I don't care if she shaved her head out of her own will or was forced to it - fact is, she is clearly made an example of, like to show what happens to 'bad girls'.

Srsl, I get the idol-rules thing and 'that they knew what they sign up for', but it doesn't mean I'll ever accept this rule. I'm sick of hearing 'they are idols, we support them, buy their stuff etc., so they need to sacrifice something' I'm sick of hearing this - it's such a cheap excuse from the fans' side.
A person's sexuality is one of the most natural things in the world. It's easy for a 13 year old girl to say that she won't have a boyfriend/won't be in a romantic relationship/won't have sex as long as she is in the group... but once she becomes an adult, sexuality becomes an important issue. A teenager's sexuality/feeling of lust can never be compared with an adults. All the hormones that influence a person etc. Why is wanting/having sex oh-so-sick and disgusting?

This brings me to the next point: This rule is mainly here because of the fans. Fans take this way too seriously. Fandom should be part of our lives, but not our whole life. I would advise everyone who gets freaked out over his/her fav possibly dating/being in a relationship etc. to go out into the real world, talk to a real guy/girl, maybe have a real boy/girlfriend, but not live in this dream-world forever.

By the way, you know the saying about how one shouldn't ask something from someone else when he/she can't follow it her/himself? How about AKB management once tries to stick to the no-date/no-sex/no-romance rule? Would be fun to see how long they would be able to hold on to this.

All hail to everything you said and  askbask too I m in rage at her mistreatment. I do not care if she chooses to do it, I do not care if it is a PR stunt so people would take her side afterwards... I don't see how this can even be POSSIBLE and acceptable by people. This is downright humilating as a woman and fucking disgusting in general. WTH is this video ? How can such thing be deemed acceptable?

Like lot of others I agree once again about how that '' not dating'' rule should stop (as well as the marriage later on). This is terrible. And to actually go to THAT extent to please the wota ?

How can I still support AKB after this ? I love the girls, and especially Miichan, but I can't.
