Other than that, my life is fairly boring. It got freezing here in Kiryu, and as of right now, I'm dying a shivery death here at my desk in the teacher's room... which has heating. Venturing into the rest of the school is much more horrifying, and I'm dreading next period, when I have to go teach. @____@;
But! I really have been wanting a place to celebrate the fact that, for three consecutive weeks, Kouchi Yugo, my most beloved favourite member of B.I.Shadow/Bakaleya-kumi who is underloved and shunted to the back 90% of the time by the management, has been featured in School Kakumei livestages for the past three consecutive weeks! For a little background, Yugo is randomly the only junior on School Kakumei with Hikaru, Chinen, and Yamada from Hey! Say! JUMP, and usually, during the livestages, he's completely absent or else backdancing for the Hey! Say! JUMP members, dressed like the other juniors and not special at all despite the fact that he's a member of the show's regular cast. However, three episodes ago, he randomly was, for the first time, in line with the Hey! Say! JUMP members for the final segment of the the livestage, when they sang Super Delicate. He was wearing an outfit different than the Hey! Say! JUMP members (who wear what they and Yugo wear for the episode) but also different from the other juniors: the other juniors wore blue shirts and black ties while Yugo wore a white shirt and a black tie with a row of white sequins down the middle. While the camera didn't really pan to him and he was mostly visible when in the shot with Hey! Say! JUMP members, I was relatively excited about this. It carried over to the next episode, but then in this past week's episode, it moved up a notch: Yugo was dressed in his regular costume from the show and the camera pointedly panned to him equally, like he was a full member. He still only performed Super Delicate, but it was definitely a huge step up. I'm thrilled, and I really hope things keep going well for him in the future. He's been treated so poorly by the management recently... He deserves this and so much more.
