Good morning, and a very happy Saturday to you! I hope that everybody had a good week — idol certainly did, and between this and all the rest of the posts and of course the Corenament, it’s like we barely scratched the surface. It’s a good time of year.
Of course, this is 2019, so the run of absolutely gut-punching graduations continues to mock and dismay us. Honestly, who’s even next? Papermaiden mentioned in the Team chat the other day that Yotsu from Zenkimi would be the next according to how things have gone in her list of favorites, and you talk about a sucker punch, that’s what Yotsu’s graduation would be like. Aina. Any of several Mashir/los. Beni. Ano. The Goddess Among Us that we’re allowed to call First Summer Uika. No, please, thanks.
Anyway, let’s focus on the good stuff. The Fun, for instance, is a very good fun! Also the Corenament, which I’ve decided to run for the Elite Eight today and tomorrow instead of just tomorrow, largely because it’s accurate and also because I’m lazy and also because traffic dips on the weekends, and far be it from me to not have lots of votes for something as important as the Elite Eight. Oh, and some other posts! It’ll be great!

Idol in Focus
This week’s Idol in Focus is none other than YONEKO, who, for one thing:
Most are old clothes, about 1,000 yen to about 2,000 yen. The money we get for an hour at a part-time job in Japan is about a thousand yen.
