"Television, don't go to my head"


Last night marked Yukari’s debut on the music talk show Domoto Brothers. Titled Domoto Brothers Autumn Festival, it was a two hour “special” meant to introduce the few new regulars to the show. Although those two hours were padded out with about half an hour of ‘best of’ filler clips, the actual format of the show wasn’t exactly as I expected. The prospect of a music talk show with Yukari sitting around and offering her take on the days pop music sounded fantastic. As I started to watch though, it quickly became apparent that the reality was going to be infinity more boring.
The main point of the show seems to be to cart on a new guest every week (last night it was the turn of the deplorable housewifes choice Gou Hiromi), sit them right in front of the camera and subject them to a fairly lengthy Q and A session. Far from having the opportunity to chip in, most of the regulars were resigned to sitting around and doing nothing.
This being the first episode, the new arrivals were also put through the Q and A, and this was the only point at which Yukari was given any opportunity to participate. The questions, ranging from “What time do you get up in the morning?” (“Early!”) to “How old are you?” (“18!”) were barely scraping the mundane, although I suppose for a light entertainment show like this it was to be expected. Then that was it, she sat at the back (usually out of shot), occasionally pretending to be interested in Gou’s boring comments about how great he is. I think it'll turn out to be good promotion for H and Y now that their new single is getting ready to roll, but I think that Yukaris moment on the show may have already been and gone.

Apologies for the awful quality of the above shots. That's what you get for using pre-Victorian equipment. Yukari's necklace says 'Good Girl'.

Hmm, is it me, or is her face chubbier? Maybe all the fame has gone to her head, literally? EEK!

Anyways, regards some more Jariten (sounds like the strawberry chips remix "Real wood floor - Paruyakana, Design!"

Jessica C, your goddess :/

Heh heh. I'm not sure about chubbier, but she certainly looks a bit older.
