Useless #28: Crazy eyes, creepy wota, foreheads, Sashihara Mai

Halloween is over.  There is a lot of interesting news recently — but I’m not sure if this post is one of those things!  What’s uselessly noteworthy today?  Today we look at eyes, crazy wota, the foreheads of HKT48, and Shiraishi Mai. Or Sashihara Rino. Or Maiyan. Or Sasshi.

Crazy eyes.  There is no real explanation.  What’s going on here?!?!

On a completely unrelated side note, did anyone watch Watanabe Mayu’s appearance in “Elevator” #7?

I thought here eyes were very expressive. Or maybe too many close ups of her face (certainly not a bad thing!).

“What am I looking at?!”



Even when she’s scared, she’s too cute. But it’s even better when she smiles:

Okay, enough of that for now!

Occasionally we see some crazy antics of wota now and again, and occasionally the fervor of fandom takes over to the point when shame is no longer an factor.

Here, an enthusiastic wota holds up a sign to his oshimen who is on stage:

Well, that’s nice… but… wait, what does that sign say?

The sign says:

“Boobs” → ♡


The formula for cuteness?

HKT48. Foreheads. All the foreheads.

And while we’re at it, maybe some other foreheads too:

Here’s a picture of Nogizaka46’s Shiraishi Mai in a recent magazine.

Huh?! Wait, actually that’s Sasshi.

…. oh wait, actually that really is Maiyan. Or maybe it’s… Sasshi?

Okay, really, I think it’s Shiraishi Mai. She sure has changed.

Sorry Maiyan!

    NMB had foreheads in recent history, too.
    Yamamoto looked cute.

    • reika

      Right of course! Some girls have a complex about foreheads it seems!

  • Jack

    Lol that looked like Maiyan’s face with Sasshi’s hair. And I guess her signature beauty spot was not as prominent. :O

    • reika

      haha yes it’s so true. I thought it was Sasshi at first, but it was actually Maiyan. Maybe the shape of the face threw me off, I don’t know!

    • reika

      Sometimes Japanese wota seem strange, but one must admire their dedication lol

  • Payuyu Fortyeight

    Lmao the wotas XD the members could also see that msg clearly & their faces up close they’re too near the stage XD immamura maria’s so tiny and cute ^_^ but i was kinda shocked of maiyan resembling sasshi a bit lol i think it’s the hair? lol

    • reika

      Me too! I thought Maiyan and Sasshi’s face are totally different, but I guess just the right position, lighting, etc.
