AKB48 Shimazaki Haruka “Even if you hate AKB48, Don’t hate me!!”

  March 5, 2013

This is a quick recap of this week’s (March 5th) episode of Ariyoshi Kyowakoku (Ariyoshi Republic), in which the two SNH48 members, Miyazawa Sae and Suzuki Mariya, as well as Shimazaki Haruka appeared as guests.

Yannu: Ariyoshi-san, long time no see! Do you remember we actually met before?

Ariyoshi: Miss, when and in what situation did we meet?

Yannu: I appeared in one of VTR aired in this show, and when you looked at me, you said “This girl looks like she has less luck”.

Arisyoshi: You mean it, but I don’t remember at all!!!

No…. No impression ToT

Okay let’s start with the first corner! In this corner, we will talk for 5 minutes on assinged topic!
Today’s topic is…

Ariyoshi: There have been rumors that Janken Tournament was a setup.

Shimazaki Haruka (Paruru): Well….. yeah.

Paruru: I didn’t imagine the situation will be messed up like this.

I just won the tournament fair and square.

Kojima Haruna (Kojiharu): To outsiders, the game Paruru winning the tournament at that timing may be too good to be true.

Ariyoshi: But you know, setup is an essential part of entertainment.

Everyone: Nope Nope LOL

Miyazawa: Nope, this is Gachi, Gachi (Serious and Fair battle).

Ariyoshi: What? Was that Gachi?

Miyazawa: What are you talking, that was absolutely Gachi!

Shimazaki: (in a low voice) Yes….

Arisyohi: You mean only a couple of Janken Match were fixed?

Kojiharu: No~~~~

Kojiharu: Until the Janken tournament, I’d been Senbatsu for all singles of AKB48. But the record stopped as I lost to Umechan.

Ariyoshi: So it’s because you won too much. In her (Paruru) case, she didn’t win that much so they figured she should win more, so they gotta fix a match for her?

Shimazaki: As for me, I fought the match fair, but…..

Miyazawa: (Shaking her head) No no no no.

Paruru: Oh wait…… It could be….. It could be a fixed match……….!!!!!!

Ariyoshi: Oh yeah, it’s just because you are the winner and was told anything about what was going on behind the scenes!

Paruru: Certainly! Certainly!! It could be a setup!!!!!!!

Everyone burst into laughter, but Sae kept denying it in an assertive tone.

Sae: You don’t need to worry about that (put her hand on Paru’s shoulder gently.)

Ariyoshi: It’s no brainer lol it’s Janken. How is it possible to lose on purpose when the opponent doesn’t know anything.

*Janken: paper, scissors, rock

Okay let’s move onto the next corner! “Story behind the Rumors!!”

Ariyoshi: (Reading a letter from viewers) This is a rumor that I found on the internet. It says “Miyazawa actually didn’t want to go Shanghai.”

What a heavy topic in this nonsensical show…..

Sae: It’s not……. Not that I didn’t want to go there.

Sae: Do you really think one can bet her life on something that she is reluctant to do?

Ariyoshi: (making a shay face) Don’t try to look cool, You bet your life on it? it’s too cool, man….

Okay, I got it, you tend to try to look yourself cool…. LOL

Sae: At first, when I was told, there have been a talk on transfer to Shanghai, I just laughed it off, saying “No way.” I thought out of question. Yeah I said that. I keenly remember I said so.

I said “No, it’s impossible. I won’t go.”

Then I asked them to have a talk and let me have more details on the plan.

And when I talked with Akimoto-sensei and managers at my agency, I was told I won’t be able to appear on Japanese Media, I won’t be able to work in Japan nor with Japanese media, and that was the my biggest concern.

Sae: I didn’t feel much fear of being away from AKB48, and I’m pretty confident that my fans are supporting me wherever I would be.

But I thought it’s a huge drawback that I can’t be on Japanese media.

Sae: But when I listed cons and pros of going to Shanghai, I found pros overweighed cons. I figured it will be good for me, give me opportunities to improve myself, thus I decided to give it a go.

Sae: It took me 3 or 4 days to reach a conclusion but it’s a decision I made on my own will.

Ariyoshi: What about other members? Did you know they were having this talk back then, Kojima-san?

Kojiharu: Well, I didn’t know.

Ariyoshi: You don’t know anything, don’t you?

Kojiharu: Yes, I didn’t know at all.

Sae: Yeah I consulted NyanNyan…. But you know, I was moved when she shed tears when she knew my transfer.

Kojiharu: Yeah, I cried, cause I felt I’ll miss her.

Ariyoshi: If it were you, what would you do?

Kojiharu: Uhm? I won’t go.


 Kojiharu: I think there’re lots of things that a girl like Sae-chan, who can communicate with people really well, can do there.

But if it were me, I think I will do no good for them, so…. I’m truly amazed by Sae-chan.

Ariyoshi: Were Suzuki and Miyazawa close to each other before the transfer?

Sae: Not at all.

Yanne: Actually, we hadn’t talked to each other before.

Sae: But now we are the best friends.

Ariyoshi: If you could have a choice, who you wanted to go to Shanghai with?

Sae: Eh….. Paruru, perhaps?

Ariyoshi: Even though she is Ponkotsu???

Ariyoshi: What’s your answer, Paruru?

Paruru: Uhmmmm I won’t go….


Paruru: Cause I’m struggling even in Japan……

It’s unimaginable to go to Shanghai…..

Ariyoshi: Hahaha, well, Miyazawa, I’m rooting for you. Good luck with your challenge in Shanghai!


Ariyoshi: (A letter from viewers) A rumor I found on the internet. “Shimazaki is enjoying a villain role.”

What is this….? This is….. interesting!

Ariyoshi: She is salty* at handshake event, unfriendly, everyone bashes her on the internet.

Sae: Seriously? LOL

Ariyoshi: But Shimazaki herself never let those people who’re trying to stomp her reputation let herself down.

She has strictly stuck to the villain role.

*Salty: surly attitude

Ariyoshi: What do you think?

Paruru: I haven’t realized it myself but…..

Everyone is so mean…. like you know members can hear what fans are talking as they leave after handshake.

And I heard people saying, “What a salt~~~~~~~!!!”

LOLOL This scene, where Paruru is impersonating the fan is priceless!

Kojiharu: When I paired with Paruru at nationwide handshake event, I could only hear my voice in the booth. When I looked at her, she was standing like a statue, not move, no gesture, no words, just holding her hand at the handshake position.

Sae: I guess she got tired in the latter portion of the event.

Ariyoshi: But do people bash you only on the internet? Anyway, their voice reach you somehow, right?

Paruru: So I receive fan letters. But even though it’s a fan letter, it’s full of preaching messages…. Like “You were crappy in blah blah section of the Tv show blah blah blah.”

Ariyoshi: Oh….. But it’s par for the course, since it’s AKB, the fans and girls are very close to each other.

Paruru: Exactly, so I’m losing fans every time I attend handshake events.

Ariyoshi: Oh yeah, it can’t be helped!

At this point, it was hard to tell whether Paruru is serious or playing a scripted part…..

Paruru: No, I want to solve this.

Ariyoshi: Well, fans, Shimazaki won’t change for a while~

Paruru: Oh yeah~

Next corner,

“Let’s think of Catch Phrase for Shimazaki Haruka!”

Ariyoshi: By the way, what’s your current catchphrase?

Paruru: No catchphrase. I just say my age, my name and add “Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu” at the end.

Ariyoshi: Do you find any good one?

Sae: I think this is a good one.

Paruru: “ZakiShima is coming coming~~~~~!!!!”

Paruru: Do~mo, I’m Shimazaki Haruka.

Mariyanne chose the catchphrase which is a parody of Mayuyu’s.

Paruru: “Mi~nina no Ashi o Hi~Paruru!!”

Ashi o Hipparu (足を引っ張る): Drag other people’s legs, means to be an obstacle to others.

 Cuteness Overload!!

Ariyoshi: Kojima Oyakata, what’s your choice?

Kojiharu: Since I have an impression that Paruru resembles Acchan in some aspects, I chose this one.

Paruru: “Even if you hate AKB48, please don’t let that hate make you hate me!!!”

*Famous phrase of Maeda Atsuko at the 2011 election or at this date, we’d better say it’s a signature phrase of Kintaro.

LOL This parody is much better than the original~

Sae: How about this one?

Sae: LOL This is completely dissing Takamina!

Kojiharu: This is awesome!!!

Paruru: “Effort will definitely rewarded….. huh? Are you crazy? (in annoying face)

Oh hai! I’m Shimazaki Haruka! (Big Smile!)”

love it!

Yannu: I think this is similar.

Ariyoshi: Ohhh, well since she is a villain, she can nail this as well, I guess.

Paruru: “Hai, I’m Shimazaki Haruka also known as Paruru from Saitama.

What? (Its’ boring?) Nope, catchphrase can be as lame as this!”

Kojiharu: LOL This is awesome~~~!!

Ariyoshi: I think she should just copy catchphrases of her seniors and made a parody/diss of them!

Paruru: I think it may be a good idea.

Ariyoshi: Miyazawa, what’s your catchphrase?

Sae: Mine? It goes like this,

“Jollity, innocence and energy, I’m Miyazawa Sae, 22 year old.”

Ariyoshi: Okay, Let’s practice with the catchphrase, Shimazaki!

Paruru: LOL

Paruru: Jollity, Innocence and Energy! I’m Shimazaki Haruka, 19 year old!

Dafuq? Are you stupid or something?


Paruru never fails to make us laugh when she talks about Anti….

  • hahaha i love paruru

  • ponkatsu~~ ponkatsu~~ ponkatsu girl! >_<

  • that was a magnificent paruru moment

  • Hashire

    i’m laughed so hard at catchphrase parody
    paruru so lively here

  • Loneshotty

    Paruru is who she is thats why i love that girl.

  • Callighan

    Many thanks for the recap! 🙂

  • Zennedy

    That’s it!!
    Hating just gonna makes this girls stronger!!
    Because why?/ Because she don’t care at all!! LOL

  • rka

    Sorry for interrupting the Paruru praising ;), but this is the second time Sae states she would have been removed from senbatsu promotion (or opted to go to SNH48). Anyone knows why? I know about transition to next gen etc, but is there a more concrete reason why she was forced out of senbatsu despite being pretty stable in sousenkyo?

    • the next singles of akb48 couldn’t handle Sae’s manliness. She is after all, the best ikemen of akb.

      • Sae

        I beg to differ. One thing about Sae that makes her standout from the other girls is that she can take on both masculine and feminine role. This girl is versatile, she can look good as a guy OR a girl. I’m frustrated that the management just couldn’t see how rare and precious this versatility is. If she gets a good boost from the management, I’m sure she can be alot more successful than the girls the management are promoting.

    • anon.

      To make place for girls like Paruru, Milky, Sakura in an already-crowded senbatsu, Sae and Chiyuu and Akicha were exiled. Simple as that. They’re not as “young”, as “fresh” and as untalented as Paruru and Sakura, obviously.

      Sure, the concept of cheering a ponkotsu on is nice and it would work perfectly if AKB is still a bunch of nobodies trying to make it big. Doing it now just depicts this ridiculous idea of being untalented and bad at your job will give you a promotion, while trying to be competent at your job will get you a relegation or a sack. Thank God my favorite members already left/are going to leave the group soon.

      • loneshotty

        So why are you here complaining?? Move on already.

        • anon.

          “are going to leave the group soon.”

          There’s always one girl that pulls me back and trust me, dear, I’d love to move on once that girl leave in June.

  • MYY7

    shimazaki haruka dess…..love paruru…

  • No matter what haters say to her… Paruru still cute at all for me…never fail to make me keep thinking about her

  • novakayne27

    Not necessarily a fan or an anit of Paruru but dont agree with the center push… Even still the article is funny as hell, i started to crack up when she said “Everytime i attend handshake events i lose fans” cause u cant tell if shes joking or serious which makes it funny and true

    • Being so “saltily” treated is really hard to take in for a lotta fans after all…

  • So Funny. Yes it is. Yeessss

  • Not Again

    I became a fan of Paruru BECAUSE of her saltiness. She has an honest personality. Smiles when she wants to, won’t when she doesn’t feel like it. It’s not her fault management all of a sudden tries to make her Acchan 2.0 and thereby giving her undue stress. It’s like Jo all over again. Speaking of Acchan, Paruru really should use that parody catchphrase. It’s hilarious.

    • AntiMainstream

      Agree with you, I admire her because of her true feeling, even tough she’s poor on performance. I think if we only support girls which has good or excellence performance, it would sound to mainstream, but supporting this kind of girl which has poor performance is giving me some enthusiastic. It’s like to encourage this girl “come on, you can do it!”. And when I see this girl improve from nothing to something, it would make me happy as if you see your little sister or your girlfriend archive big rewards for something.

    • Love ya!

      Agree with that!

  • BitchParuru

    Dont Copy Mayuyu -.-

    • melody

      she’s not copying mayuyu

  • Black Ops DES

    hate her so much,, go to hell

    • Mayu

      the janken is all scripted,, Aki-p wants to push her as the next acchan, and when that happens its the fall of akb empire..

      • Hashire

        make a proof dude !
        even everyone on that show denying it
        don’t make you look fool with your comment
        and paruru is paruru, just b/c some her personality like acchan don’t mean she will be next acchan or whatever . That’s It !!

        • aaaa

          the next acchan? then its over for akb. she cant even beat mayu for the center position. paruru is just famous because management is supporting her idiot..

          • Hashire

            i never say she can/will beat someone. get it??
            i just say paruru is paruru, she has her own identity don’t need to make her become someone else.
            i’m paruru fan and i just become realistic, of course you’re right, i’m also think she can’t beat mayu to become center and of course mayu more famous than her. mayu already become senbatsu when she joined AKB while paruru wait for 3 years when she joined AKB to get this chance

          • Oogoe

            Shimazaki is over push by the management, they should stop supporting her and choose another member to support, its not like akb is a center, but a group, they need future talents, why push paruru, try push other members too like karen..

          • Hashire

            management push another member like anrire, karen also got push from her solo singing hana wa saku, and another ex team 4 member who considered future generation. paruru get more push not all management factor, there staff or fans and also her agency. paruru agency “Big Apple” one of the biggest agency at japan. maybe that’s why she get more push from management

          • fuckruru

            Paruru useless . com

  • cyborg212

    why is the management supporting this girl? she dont have talent at all, i mean compare to other members. so lame, i wish she resign soon

    • hermione

      so every popular member is the most talented one,right? what about Yuka and Sato Natsuki? they were AKB members, but never pushed so much, stop being bitter against one person

  • cyborg212

        paruruseless . tumblr . com

        • anonda

          no thank you

  • ChengThao

    I don’t blame Paruru for her attitude but I don’t like how management is pushing her so much to be the next center

    wasn’t the whole purpose of the Sosenkyou to show who is and isn’t popular?

    why push Paru when there are other more popular/interesting girls . . . but I wouldn’t be surprised if she made it into the Kami 7 in the next election . . . I hope she doesn’t b/c if she does, it’ll be too obvious that management is rigging things for her to be the next center

  • FReeros

    GTHell hater,,,

  • okay.. my oshimen is the old ace – Acchan .. so.. good luck Paruru 🙂 You’d never become the new Acchan .. but at least the wotas love you for who you are not because you’re Acchan 2.0 right ?

    • Hermione

      yes, we like her because of who she is and she isnt a second version of anyone, thank you

  • Wasak

    paruru useless . com

  • Love ya!

    Paruru.. I’m hoping you the best! from m’sia

  • Love ya!

    Thanks Hashire for showing this to me. Hoping that, all the fans niether hate akb48 nor the members of that groups.

  • Love ya!

    Paruru… Happy Birthday!!~ tommorow.

  • Susan Wen
