When you take Sakura out of the top 7 AKB48 members, you’re left with what appears to be a much older Kami 6.
Another exception, is Jurina of course, who is still 18. We covered this previously when Sashihara noted her opinion on the appropriate age of idols. Ages of Kami 6, noted above:[table] Name, age
Sashihara Rino, 22
Kashiwagi Yuki, 23
Watanabe Mayu, 21
Takahashi Minami, 24
Matsui Jurina, 18
Yamamoto Sayaka, 21
This comes courtesy of a recent 2ch thread. The Kami 6 appear recently on a TV Tokyo show, and one viewer notes: “This doesn’t seem like what idols should be. I guess idols only last until 20.”
Other commentators go on to agree and disagree, while others post what “real” idols should be. What follows is a selection of comments.
“Everyone except Mayu and Jurina aren’t looking so good.”
“Can you look at this and still say Sasshi is ugly?”
“Is that Mayuyu in the middle? Quite some deterioration…”
“Mayuyu and Sayanee look great.”
“Last year was much better”
The thread then takes a turn, and commentators start posting what they believe to be “true” idols. The photographic proof:
I don’t necessarily disagree with them, but it’s really a matter of preference and perspective.
I’m writing about useless and stupid things a lot, and I like to laugh. My policy is 一期一会。It means treasure your meeting with everyone!
