1982.07.18 ~ 2014.07.18 ::: The long journey from little songstress to immortal legend
“Queen of Stage,” “Cantopop Queen,” “Ever Changing Queen,” “Empress of Song,” “Big Sister of HK Music Industry,”… Mui Yim-Fong truly lives up to these respectable titles. And yet at the same time she was, is, and will always be just one thing – our beloved Anita, simple as that. She was indeed a superstar, and more importantly a special, magnificent woman. I am elated that she is finally immortalized in the form of a bronze statue located on Hong Kong’s Avenue of Stars.[x]
Anita, thank you for being YOU, and for leaving us with beautiful memories that could last a lifetime. We are forever grateful, and forever enthralled.
Daughter of Hong Kong ~ Anita Mui
Mui’s bronze statue was officially unveiled on July 18, 2014 to celebrate the 32th anniversary of her debut in HK showbiz. It is located on Hong Kong’s Avenue of Stars (星光大道).

The talk is mostly about Mariri and AKB48
(which I found quite boring), so here is some funny bits about Sa-ya and Yu-kun’s relationship:
- Mariri suddenly show up at their new house, Yu-kun was like “Who leaked it out ò____ó?!” Sa-ya asked why Mariri knew it
Mariri: Oshima Yuko-san told me you just got married and moved here so I came to visit…
Sa-ya: WHAT!?! Ò___Ó Sorry, can you keep it a secret for us?
Mariri: But Yuko told it to quite a bunch of people already…
Yu-kun: Damn it Yuko…
Sa-ya: Sorry Yu-kun, I will tell Yu-chan to keep her mouth shut
Yu-kun: Please, I beg you!
- For the cooking, Yu-kun did everything and Sa-ya basically just stood there to talk
Yu-kun: Because my Sa-ya couldn’t do anything (so I have to do everything)
Sa-ya: I’m specialized in drinking instead (aka serving tea for guests XD)
Yu-kun: Okay okay (lol)
- Mariri called Yu-kun ‘papa’ (it’s normal to call the husband in a family ‘papa’ when they have children)
Yu-kun:.. well, someday
Sa-ya: *look at her belly*
Yu-kun: … what XDD
Yu-kun: Oh, you’re virtual pregnant ne XDD
Sa-ya: You don’t need to say that out! That shows how much I love Yu-kun you know! XD
- Yu-kun made a mistake when cracking the eggs
Sa-ya: If you need any help just say, kay?
Yu-kun: You can’t do anything though…
Sa-ya: At least I can separate the egg white!!!
Yu-kun: Okay, try doing this
Sa-ya: *crack the egg* damn, I put it in the wrong bowl!
- Mariri asked why the two of them get married.
Yu-kun: Even though Sa-ya looks like this, she’s actually very girly. That gap, G-A-P is really important.
- They did a psychological test to see the problem lying in their marriage.
Sa-ya chose the answer showing that her marriage will face problem because of different opinions.
Yu-kun: You have too many opinions about things like how the food tastes, how we should do about our children, how about moving, etc… like that will make our relationship go bad.
Sa-ya: …… Then I just need to shut my mouth and that will be fine, right?
Yu-kun: You can’t do that though?
Akimoto Sayaka was in Taiwan to promote her new movie, a total of about 200 fans were present at the fan-meeting session!!
Akimoto Sayaka will be the lead in NHK BS Premium drama “Senkan Yamato no KAREIRAISU” (The curry rice of battleship Yamato)
Kureha Saori (Akimoto Sayaka) is working at the editorial department of a local magazine called 『ＫＵＲＥ：ＹＯＮ』 in Hiroshima prefecture. One day Saori met Chouji, a chef working at a shop on the food street, and she has fallen for him. The curry Chouji made was told to resemble the one served on battleship Yamato in the past.
The old naval base town Kure wanted to win the 『Navy Gourmet Festival』 to raise its popularity. And Saori believed that only Chouji’s curry can help Kure defeat Yokosuka, Sasebo, Maizuru! However, Chouji refused to participate. Actually, Chouji was a chef in the sunk battleship Yamato and he has time-slipped to the modern day…… !
What is the secret that Chouji trying to hide? And where will Saori’s love head to?
I’m not sure if anyone will upload this one because it’s on NHK BS Premium. Anyway, CONGRATS SAYAKA!!!!!!!!! (((o(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)o)))
“If there is no music, I will die. I will die, really.” –Wong Ka-Kui (June 10, 1962 - June 30, 1993)
It has already been 21 years, but your songs, your voice, your spirit, and your compassion still live in the hearts of people who love you.
Ka-Kui, our hero of music, we will never stop missing you.

I know I’m getting free stuff so I can’t be demanding but… why logo right on her face out of anywhere ( ；∀；)
After seeing Sae do that to Acchan twice in AKB pvs, now I see Sayaka slap someone for the first time.
She looks so awesome yet a little scary…
Akimoto Sayaka “Takamina even called me just to ask about it”
(From this interview about her role in the movie Doreiku)
-The original work was quite popular, how was it like when the news of your casting was announced?
Sayaka: I had no prior knowledge about the original work so I only started reading it when I received offer for the part. I don’t read much manga usually so I was surprised at how interesting it was. Actually, Takahashi Minami is a big manga lover. When it was announced, she purposely called me to ask “Are you really appearing in Doreiku(Slave District)?” (laughs). That’s how I realized that it’s a pretty amazing thing. Takamina even called me just to ask about it. After that, members that love manga started contacting me one after the other and it inadvertently became a pressure for me (laughs)
