Gaki's a very strong woman. To receive all that vitriol just for having bad luck of having this unrelated ad you were able to appear in through your own work color some dumbasses who only wanted "purely untrained" girls into thinking you "sabotaged" the group is ridiculous... I love her outlook she had, that once she made up her mind, no matter how hard things got, she would never give up. She's a woman who could move mountains.
Yeah, I couldn't wrap my head around the wota defending their actions. See, I can understand explaining the "context" like that one wota was, however, explaining to defend and justify it is a whole 'nother can of worms. I always believe people should look back at their actions and realize why they did it, but still realize it was bad and unacceptable and learn and grow. Obviously those kind of wota have not.
I guess I just don't understand how people can so obsessed with a concept that is theirs and theirs only and try to impose it on everyone that they do such things.
Seriously, any of the issues with things being lackluster nowadays is on management. To blame the girls themselves on anything other than maybe lack of self-imposed practice for singing/dancing, if their talent is what irks you, is plain foolish. The whole point of H!P has been to spread love, peace, and understanding. I believe that is what Tsunku wanted, and yet these "mega fans" themselves can't even understand that.
