2chan says: I’ve been a Sasshi hater for three years. I’m tired

One long-time Sashihara Rino hater (or “anti”, if you prefer) laments that his efforts are in vain. What ensues is a funny and interesting exchange, when the hater sadly admits defeat by confessing how cute Sasshi has become.

Hi there. Welcome to “2chan says.” I will be attempting to translate selected threads from Japanese message board 2chan (aka, 2ch or 2channel), purely for interest and entertainment purposes (and for translation practice). The opinions expressed here belong to the anonymous Japanese internet at large, and do not necessarily reflect the view of akbzine; plus, this page could be riddled with translation errors anyway. Proceed at your own risk, fine reader!

A translation note: I use the word “hater” instead of “anti”. While “anti” is a valid word, it sounds relatively unnatural to use it by itself in (American) English. Also, you might notice that this thread is rather old.

I’ve been a hater for about 3 years, and I am honestly tired…

No matter how hard I badmouth her, she was still #1 in the election. She made headlines doing that concert in her swimsuit. She also has lots of work in commercials and televsion.

Just this weekend, almost like every single day, she appears on all these famous TV shows like Ariyoshi’s Summer. Gurunai, Gacchir Monday…

And then I heard that she is being called back on Wide na Show.

I am really tired… what should I do?

Thanks to the haters, we have come all this way.
Please continue your support!

What will we do if the haters start complaining?

If you do not try your best, Sasshi is gonna be in trouble!(´・ω・`)
Sasshi was able to come this far on the fuel of haters!

Thanks everyone.
Maybe I will try just a little bit longer…

Starting now, you have to check all of Sasshi’s TV shows and magazines. Good luck with the hater life, okay?

I have been checking all her TV shows.
I do not have any of the magazines. One of my hater friends is checking those, so if he finds something, I will do my best to lay down the hate.

Ah, also! If you are able to go to concerts, it is good to look there. You do not need to go so far as to buy goods.

Don’t give up!

Don’t give up until Sashihara becomes a regular Monday-night drama actress.

That is gonna be impossible, lol.
At least, tell him to not give up until she becomes MC on a Golden Week TV Show.

I’ve tried my best to knock Sashihara down because I believed it was for Mayuyu’s sake. But honestly, there’s a big difference between Mayuyu and Sasshi now, right?

I’m so tired of this…

What’s even more unbearable, is that I am always watching Sashihara’s TV shows and, lately, I’m finding that she’s becoming cuter and cuter…

That swimsuit concert really did a number on me.

Sashihara Rino, "swuimsuit concert"

Even so, you’ve still gotta keep it up.
Even is Sasshi is getting more and more cute, the work of a hater is to try harder to maintain that hater lifestyle!

Give it up! You need to realize that Sasshi is the heavenly idol of the AKB Group! She’s a “new type” that’s way ahead of her nearest rival. We ordinary people can never become like that. She’s like a goddess!

    This is absolutely the funniest thing I think you guys have posted yet on AKBZINE! I WISH I could spend time on 2ch with this kind of stuff going on there! Sasshi and her antis…oh man. That’s always going to be a funny story, given that Sasshi is laughing all the way to the bank because of them.

    • yuki

      Thanks man — that is honestly quite a compliment, considering I do not post much around these parts.

      It is a funny relationship, isn’t it? On the one hand, Sasshi’s haters/antis are really outwardly laying the hate, but it is also an acknowledgement of her greatness. I just thought this particular thread was pretty hilarious since the guy admits defeat by falling to Sasshi’s cutess hehe.

      • Derek Vasconi

        The posting you do is ALWAYS appreciated by me. I love AKBZINE and everyone who is a part of this special place for us AKB lovers.
        As for this thread, you can actually FEEL the defeat in this anti’s admission. I couldn’t stop laughing. I’m sick right now with a nasty cough and I laughed to the point where I nearly fell off my chair… I mean…TOOO funny when somebody is THAT defeated over being an anti and being overcome by Sasshi’s greatness! This was a much needed smile fest for me tonight. So thank you beyond words. Please keep posting. I read every single post on here and check this site at least once a day, so your efforts are ALWAYS noticed!

  • Sam

    This is hilarious LOL

    Maybe he was defeated long long before but was too afraid to admit it.
    We can call it pride LOL, hater pride hahaha

    • yuki

      Hater pride? Now that is something new I need to remember hehe.

    Awfully positive over the talk on hating Sasshi. I don’t like her that much but she is doing well anyways.

  • Payuyu Fortyeight

    lmao what on earth did i just read not sure if the anti’s fellow anons were being sarcastic or serious lol these people are really wasting their effort & time on hating sasshi, basically any hater is. how pathetic if you dont like the person just avoid them or whatever, why bring them down by saying rude words towards them right when you can just avoid them? and these haters are not making a fortune by hating either, only sasshi is making money by this publicity oops lol you go sasshi! :>

    • yuki

      Serious or sarcastic – honestly, I was not quite sure myself, but that is one part of what makes it so interesting.

      I understand your feelings about haters / antis. It seems to be par for the course when it comes to idol fandom.
