Something odd happened to some of the NMB profile pictures I posted... They somehow changed from the size that I uploaded them in, and became smaller. For whatever reason, they still seem to be the right size when I look at them in full size. Do you think I should try re-uploading them?
I've been wondering why AkiP and her fans call her a Ponkotsu. Moreover, I don't really understand what a ponkotsu is. I tried looking it up, but the only definition I found was "piece of junk". Is this what they call her, or does ponkotsu mean somethine else? She's such a nice girl, why would she be junk?! >.<
Paru's not the only one called "ponkotsu" actually. HKT48 Team H's Cap, Anai Chihiro is often called "ponkotsu captain". In a "direct-to-english" translation, it might sound like what you have found. But the reason they are called "ponkotsu" by the fans is because they (the fans) seemed like they (Chihiro and Paru) often make unexpected mistakes (in a shorter term: making a blunder). One example is Chihiro's guitar performance in HaKaTa Hyakkaten, where she always fail at an unexpected moment. Paru's salty reaction is often the source of her being called ponkotsu, because the fans expect an energetic reaction, but due to Paru's personality (often looks like she's suppressing herself, or reserved), she gives-off a "cold" expression.
Ah I see. I actually did watch that SHUKAN AKB episode, and the conclusion I came to was that a ponkotsu (at least in terms of Paruru) is somewhat of a person who lacks a responsive personality, which she seems to be. Kind of like how Yukirin is famous for her big reactions, while Paruru would just blink or give a curious look. Thanks for helping clear that up for me.
Go ahead. ^_^ I'm double checking the members right now so I might not have some time to modify it. I'm also checking each singles pages if I missed some of them, or if there're misspelled names. Thanks again.
I borrowed the effects from another wikia, then arranged them in a table format (6x2 table). Then I used < div style='position:fixed;top:0;left:0;padding:0' > to make the effect stay put/fixed in the same position (even when scrolling up or down). ^_^
Oh! About that, no member has a birthday on that date, so I kinda auto-connect it to the previous one. I kinda have done that on almost all days with no members/staff birthday, although I still don't know some of the staff's birth dates. Sorry, I'll try to mend it.
Since the featured member poll has been up for a month, I'm wondering if you would like to actually start off with the girls who got the most votes thus far. I put in my own votes and tallied the rest up (see the comment box). It seems the winners are Oshima Yuko, Matsui Jurina, Ikuta Erika, Watanabe Miyuki, Sashihara Rino, and Melody Nurramdhani Laksani. I personally think that you actually should add in your vote as well. :)
