Useless New #25: Sayanee, Nogizaka copies SKE48, ever-supportive Takamina

We have not had useless thoughts recently, but it’s time for change today! Today, we see many silly pictures of Yamamoto Sayaka, the plagiarism of Nogizaka46, and Takamina truly living up her role as General Manager.

Sayanee is well known for her comedy sense, and it seems she can make you laugh without saying a word. Observe:


Next, we’ll take a look at Nogizaka46, on their show, “Nogizaka46 Under Construction”, and we notice that they are wearing nice new uniforms!






Of course, they are looking very cute as always. But… there is something not quote right here.

Can you guess what it is?

YES! We have all seen these uniforms before being worn by another idol group!! The evidence:



Last, and most importantly, we receive even more proof of Takamina’s unwavering support of the 48-group members… even if it just going out to by Takoyaki. Courtesy of Kashiwagi Yuki’s twitter feed:

What she says is not entirely important, but the story goes like this:

1. Kojiharu, with all the money, pays.

2. Kashiwagi delivers the money to Takamina.

3. Takamina is the one who stands in line to buy Takoyaki.

In true Soukantoku fashion, we see Takamina supporting the 48-group in all matters!

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!

    Hi how are you guys? So glad to see you are finally back with some content… feels like forever since you last posted. Also, not trying to be critical, but the new layout I think, uh, needs some work. It’s really clunky. It reminds me of Windows 8. I loved how you had it before..simple, easy to check out, and didn’t feel like I was looking at a tumblr blog where I have to search everywhere for the news you’re posting. Anyway, happy to see you back, wish you well, and looking forward to anymore new posts (and hopefully an option to have the site look the way it did before).

      Yeah im not too fond of this cluttered look.The old one was simple and works.But glad that you guys are back

      • Thanks for the feedback! I’ll see about migrating to a less cluttered look later this week / weekend 🙂

    • Hi Derek! We’re doing well, thanks for asking. And thank you for your feedback!

      To be honest, we were unsure about the new layout, but decided to go for it anyway. But it looks like you confirmed our doubts about it 🙂 And we already received a few FB messages about it.

      We have another design that we worked on which looks more similar to the original one (single column, standard layout), so we’ll probably try that one out later this week. Stay tuned!

        Yeah, I’m not trying to be mean or anything. I absolutely ADORE you guys and your site. You always have awesome news and updates. I have your site as one of my permanent google chrome tabs that I keep open 24/7. I love you guys THAT much lol.
        I would have no issue with the new layout, except the images are getting kind of pixellated because they are getting a little too big. Your other format was sharp with its images and just easy to navigate. But no worries, I’ll support you no matter what you do :). Looking forward to more awesome posts.

        • Yeah, I was trying out responsive full-width layouts, but if it is messing up images, we might just go back to fixed widths.

          And no worries 🙂 I thought your comment was very good constructive feedback and really appreciate it — didn’t think it was mean at at all. Thanks always for stopping by.

          • Derek Vasconi

            Aw, good old responsie layouts lol. I design websites for a living, as well as do SEO work for sites like yours, and when I checked your site in Chrome and in Firefox, it does seem to be a case of the responsiveness not working like it’s intended to. Fixed widths are always pretty reliable to make sure your images come out good the majority of the time, no matter how you post them on your site. It’s always a guessing game though, that’s for sure.
            Anyway, glad you understood where I was coming from. I am a huge fan so no worries. I look forward to more great posts from you always.
