AKB48 峯岸みなみからのメッセージ / AKB48[公式]
AKB GIRL gotta shaved her head, for apologize, she was daiting with exile brother group!!
AKB48 member Minami Minegashi has been demoted to trainee status in AKB48 after a sex scandal involving her and GENERATIONS' Alan Shirahama came to light yesterday in the publication Shukan Bunshun.
Togasaki Tomonobu, AKB48's theater manager, made the announcement on his Google + page, stating, "We had decided to demote Minami Minegishi to become a member of team Trainee as her punishment for causing nuisance to the fans because of this scandal. This demotion will take effect on February 1, 2013. Moreover, we will give more information about her schedule as soon as details have been decided."
Minegashi recorded a YouTube video apologizing to fans for being involved in a sex scandal. Immediately noticeable is the fact that the idol's hair has been shaved off. The singer shares that she did this herself as punishment for the scandal.
"It was a thoughtless act and I was completely lacking self-awareness as a senior member of AKB48...Although I didn't think I would be forgiven for doing this, the first thought that went through my head was 'I don't want to leave AKB48'. This is a place where I've blossomed together with my dear group mates, and it's unimaginable to even think about leaving the group," Minegashi stated.
According to a report from Shukan Bunshun, Minegashi made a late night visit to Shirahama's house on January 17th. The idol spent the night with him, leaving the next morning with a mask on to try to conceal her identity.
H 2 LUNE (H DE LUNE) started graffiti thanks to his cousins Vans RCA and Stomy Bugzy (famous french rapper) in 1989. He started practicing on the walls of his city. He was quickly asked to make logos for Abdoulaye Sect AKA Secteur-A and Ministère Ämer (famous french hip hop groups). Since then his has increased its tool palette, from pen to bomb, it went to the needle as dermograph (tatoos).
He never stops innovating and multiplying his media creation with his mates Dj Reyz and Joe J. Walls, paintings, glasses, bodies, are signed "H".

OriginalFake KAWS Boba Fett Companion Tokyo Exclusive
Everyone’s favorite Mandalorian bounty hunter, Boba Fett, is the subject of the latest KAWS Companion release from OriginalFake. A Star Wars fan-favorite and hired by Darth Vader to hunt down the Millenium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back, Fett appears here in vinyl form in his signature armored costume while sporting signature KAWS details throughout. The collaborative figure is due to be available in limited quantities in Japan as an OriginalFake Tokyo exclusive on January 26.
What a crazy saturday in Tokyo. After a big night yesterday, I just woke up at 8.30, took the taxi with a friend (he was requested for this special day), and arrived at Original Fake in Aoyama at 8.50am. Quiet at the first look, but after being arrived in front of the shop, I saw the usuall by queue.
Problem, at the end of the road that is maybe 300 meters of more, the queue continued on the right. 300 meters later, the queue turned on the left, then on the right and to finish, one more time on the right. I had never seen that.
I got friend with a nice japanese guy, Yoggy. He told me the staff said there were about 1500 people queuing. So crazy !!! And only around 450 boba fett were sold. So there was the usuall lotery system (you take a ticket in a box), and if there s a time written on the ticket you can come back to the shop to buy the toy.
After 2 hours of queuing, I finally got in front of the shop, and took a ticket in a box : LOOSING ticket !!!!!!! (on the left). Fortunately, my requested friend got the Gold Ticket (on the right). It was number 3, that means I was in the first guys to get the Boba Fett !!!! I came back at the shop at 12.20 and could buy one toy.
Out of the shop, a chinese guy (flipper )was giving money to young guys and girls who got queuing and getting the toy for him.
Happy end !!!!!!!!!!

ギャルカフェ10sion(テンション) - japanese gal (Shibuya girls) cafe in Shibuya - Tokyo.
Ganguro is an alternative fashion trend of blonde, pink or silver hair and tanned skin among young Japanese women that peaked in popularity around the year 2000. The Shibuya and Ikebukuro districts of Tokyo were the centers of ganguro fashion. In contradiction to the traditional Japanese concept of beauty by having pale skin, dark hair, and neutral makeup tones, rebellious youth tanned their skin, bleached their hair, and used colourful makeup. There is a connection to Japanese folklore of ghosts and demons, who are depicted with a similar appearance and often displayed in kabuki and noh costumes. This connection to folklore is further noted in the ganguro offshoot style called yamanba, named after a famous story about a mountain witch. The term ganguro is a portmanteau of the Japanese word gangan-kuro, meaning extremely dark, and guro, meaning grotesque, and the word ganguro can also be translated as "blackface". Contents
Ganguro appeared as a new fashion style in Japan in the early 1990s and was prevalent mostly among young women. In ganguro fashion, a deep tan is combined with hair dyed in shades of orange to blonde, or a silver grey known as "high bleached". Black ink is used as eye-liner and white concealer is used as lipstick and eyeshadow. False eyelashes, plastic facial gems, and pearl powder are often added to this. Platform shoes and brightly coloured outfits complete the ganguro look. Also typical of ganguro fashion are tie-dyed sarongs, miniskirts, stickers on the face, and many bracelets, rings, and necklaces.
Ganguro falls into the larger subculture of gyaru (from English "gal"), a slang term used for various groups of young women, usually referring to overly childish women. Researchers in the field of Japanese studies believe that ganguro is a form of revenge against traditional Japanese society due to resentment of neglect, isolation, and constraint of Japanese society. This is their attempt at individuality, self-expression, and freedom, in open defiance of school standards and regulations.Fashion magazines like Egg and Ageha have had a direct influence on the ganguro. Other popular ganguro magazines include Popteen and Ego System. The ganguro culture is often linked with para para, a Japanese dance style. However, most para para dancers are not ganguro, and most ganguro are not para para dancers, though there are many who are ganguro or gal and dance para para.
One of the most famous early ganguro girls was known as Buriteri, nicknamed after the black soy sauce used to flavor yellowtail fish in teriyaki cooking. Egg made her a star by frequently featuring her in its pages during the height of the ganguro craze. After modelling and advertising for the Shibuya tanning salon "Blacky", social pressure and negative press convinced Buriteri to retire from the ganguro lifestyle. Yamanba and manba Manba
Yamanba and manba are styles which developed from Ganguro. Old school Yamanba and Manba (particularly known as 2004 Manba) featured dark tans and white lipstick, pastel eye make-up, tiny metallic or glittery adhesives below the eyes, brightly coloured circle lenses, plastic dayglo-coloured clothing, and incongruous accessories, such as Hawaiian leis. Stickers on the face died out shortly after 2004 and, for a while, Yamanba died. Manba is now more extreme, and hair is often multicoloured and usually synthetic. 2008's Manba has seen a darker tan, and no facial stickers. Hair is usually neon/bright colours, with pink being a favourite. Wool ("dreadlocks"), extensions and clips are worn to make hair appear longer. Clothing remains the same, although leis are worn less frequently now.
Manba and Yamanba are not to be confused. Yamanba have white make-up only above the eye, while Manba has makeup below the eye also. Stuffed animals, bracelets, bells and hibiscuses are worn. The male equivalent is called a "Center guy", a pun on the name of a pedestrian shopping street near Shibuya Station in Tokyo where Yamanba and center guys are often seen. Etymology
Ganguro practitioners say that the term derives from the phrase ganganguro. The term yamanba derives from Yama-uba, the name of a mountain hag in Japanese folklore whom the fashion is thought to resemble. Ganguro is now used to describe girls, or gals, with a tan, lightened hair and some brand clothing. This can often be confused with Oneegyaru (Big Sister Gal) and Serebu, although Oneegyaru is usually associated with a lot of expensive gal brands and Serebu focuses on expensive western fashions.
