“nerve,” which is great and excellent and no longer just a callback to former rebellious glory, is and will probably always be something of an idol rite of passage; if you want people to like you, you do “nerve”; if you want to prove that you aren’t just another nice girl in a skirt smiling through a sprained ankle, that you are, in fact, cool, you do “nerve.”
Gekijo-ban (as they actually like to be called) had a member do it with a friend, and it involved a bunny costume. I think we’ll all be okay here.
