Semi-hiatus due to starting college 3
To be honest, this is a fandom that I’m very proud of. Going to handshakes in the other prefectures in japan, I’m seeing people of all age and gender, and people who are just waiting for the girls to go to their prefecture because Tokyo is just to expensive to get to, or to far for them. It doesn’t really matter if their oshis are there but more like, they are just happy to meet the 48girls.
Also, this is one fandom you can see granny coming with her grandchild, alongside the parents, decked in 48G merchandises. You see parents bringing newborns while the other parent hold the hands of a toddler. People making way so the fan on wheelchair or on clutches could get to their designated seats easier. You hear elementary kids discussing with their parents what to tell Kojiharu, another kid asking if she can pin her mayuyu badge onto her shirt before going to queue and also kids shouting “Yukirin is so cute” in a super high pitch that you think they are probably cuter than Yukirin. You see kids cosplaying Takamina Jane Doe outfits, and still see toddlers wearing Yuko’s hebirote outfit. You see the whole family down for the event, each with different biases. You also see fanboys with placards telling everyone to clean up after themselves, fan girls dancing along to the songs played at the venue and fans staying back after the event ended with trash bags to clean up whatever that’s left behind. You see nice fans giving pieces of photos to little kids and everyone generally helping everyone else.
The waiting and queuing at the events is crazily exhausting and I don’t even have anymore topic to talk to my biases. Or even just speaking Japanese itself is such a shag event for me. But the atmosphere at such events is worth it. And to stand in queue for 20minutes for 3 seconds…? I’d gladly sign myself up for more of these.
2nd last handshake but last one with Takamina/Nyanyan before I’m back to Singapore…45 minutes more before it starts. ^^
