    I thought this might be an interesting thread. We talk and share a lot about our oshimen in their threads, but what does she mean to you? For some, she is just a favorite member, for others, she is a way of life. And everything in between. So I thought about a couple of questions that might give some insight in this matter. Some questions are straightforward, but there are also a few 'what-ifs' that might spark some discussion which would be great (but keep it civil).

    The questions (you can copy paste and answer if you like):

    Who is your oshimen?
    How did she become your oshimen?
    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?

    I'll start to get things rolling.

    Who is your oshimen?
    Higuchi Hina

    How did she become your oshimen?
    At first, I didn’t notice her. In the beginning I didn’t know about a lot of members anyway, and Maiyan was my gateway oshimen. But then I started to get into the group more, and also watched their shows. And there she was, all of a sudden, with the most beautiful smile ever known to man. I was interested, started to translate some of her blogs, and with that, found my true oshimen.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    No, I haven’t. I don’t think I ever will. The thought of going to a HS event terrifies me.

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    I’d say it enhances the experience of being a fan. I am a fan of the whole group because I fell in love with the music and later learned to appreciate the members, because most of them appeal to me in some way or the other. But having Chima as an oshimen, and being actively involved by sharing and translating related content is very fun and rewarding.

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    I guess a healthy amount. :^^;: I spend a lot of time to Nogizaka46 in general, and especially to my Hinachima fansite. I try to provide blog translations within 24 hours and I sometimes cancel appointments to make that happen.

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    No. I am not a very biased person in that regard. For example, I really don’t like Secret Graffiti. I am happy Chima got to center it, but I can only press skip when I hear it.

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    Tough question. Maybe I would like her to be a bit more confident and outspoken. Not too much, because her shy and sweet demeanor is one of the reasons I love her.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    No. I am first and foremost a fan of the music, and when Chima graduates, it won’t impact the musical direction. That being said, I don’t think I can oshi someone else as I do now. I have a lot of favorites, but there is no one that inspires me as much as Chima does.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    No, if she does it for the right reasons. Meaning she wants to do that kind of gravure and enjoys it, not because she thinks it will raise her popularity for example. I know Chima does enjoy a more adult oriented shoot, so we might see more of that in the future but I am pretty sure it will be classy and elegant. And I really don’t mind to see that.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    Nah, it’s just a role, right. I might envy the guy that plays her love interest though.

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    I would be disappointed, mostly because of the risk she takes of destroying her career. Furthermore, it would depend on the circumstances I guess. I won’t abandon her though. We are all humans and we do stupid things all the time. If she honestly regrets her actions, I’ll be quick to forgive her.

    Nishino Nanase
    it should be answered with nanase pov for me, but since she's gone ill answer it both for nanase and mizuki,

    Who is your oshimen?
    Nishino Nanase;Yamashita Mizuki

    How did she become your oshimen?
    N : technically matsui rena was my real gate into nogizaka46 even i was casually been their fans since Girl's Rule era.but Nanase kinda overwhelm for me from the others since i watch Kidzuitara Kataomoi mv, my faves mv of all time. and since i start my journey in japan everything was just history.
    M : i know mizuki since her SR audition days. tbh i dont have particular favorites atm, but the first time i really noticing her when wota values her photocard set highly on the trading spot at 5th birthday live SSA. and then when they start to including 3rd gen on Influencer IHS, all about mizuki approaches,chara,style were easy enough to make her comfortable and be my future faves.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    N : Yes, I met her since Inochii wa Utsukushii individual handshakes until the very last day on Jikochuu de Ikou National Handshake at Intex Osaka
    M : Yes, been regular since Influencer until this day.

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    N : i was considered myself were 1000% more a Nanase fans rather than Nogizaka46 fans. when she decided to left the group obviously its hurt me a lot. but because she's gone i could valued the group more than back in the days and could see a lot of different things with more objectively
    M : Mizuki was considered popular but was not the original one get pushed a lot back in 3rd gen get some airdropped pushes back in the days. theres certain depressing,disappointed and madness moments regarding it. but it plays a role to give me and dozen IRL friends motivation to see her get more success in the futures which she already get a lot of momentum in this last 1 years, ofc its still not enough and theres still dozen of things i want mizuki to achieves in her journey at nogi

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?

    to be fair its not an oshimen. but i've living shittiest life that human being could be done, and to be fair comin to japan was 1 of big refresh moments of my life and idol was 1 of good motivational things that help me a lot when i start living in here

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?

    thats depends, i might a super biased person but if she does something wrong ill easily said i disliked those things but im not the kind of person who likes abandoning my faves

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?

    i dont have any particular idea what i really wants them to changed especially from Nanase, althought theres some popular facts that they tend to call Mizuki is a big liar / snakes but to be fair thats 1 of her charming points for me LOL. ill just want to say i hope she doesnt continue to work hard even she gain a lot of rise on this past years.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?

    ngl i definitely might do it. but fortunately i still have huge faves until 4ki so i dont think its gonna happen soon.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?

    not really, but tbh i was not a big fans of gravure itself. due to my school and work background i enjoyed fashion related shoots in magazine rather than any gravure.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    no. but usually the guy is ugly and i believe i was 1000% cuter XD

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?

    there's kinda some jinx i bring, if i recall my top 10 oshii list of all time i believe at least 7 out of 10 had been highlighted by bunshun LOL. so im actually okay with it although i will be very disappointed if they handle it poorly

    Who is your oshimen?
    Currently, Junna. And maybe Rena. But I'll stick to Junna as my main oshimen.
    How did she become your oshimen?
    I don't remember. Before I know it, I fell in love with her.
    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    No, and I don't plan to. I don't like HS. It's just wasting time both for me and my oshimen.
    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    Safety net. I like Nogi because of their music. And when Nogi music quality degraded for these past 2-3 singles (my preference), Junna keep me in the fandom.
    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    A little to none. I Rarely watch Junna video (SR, Koujichu, 755, or Nogiten) or see my Junna photo collection.
    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    Not much. I like when she got and playing on many stageplays. But, I get bored when I try to watch it (Inuyasha stageplays when both my oshimen Yumi & Junna starred in it). I enjoy her gravure and sometimes reading her interview.
    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    How she act on Koujichuu. I like the rude, harsh Junna with strong tsukkomi in Nogiten. If I can, I want to change her personality in Koujichuu into what she usually show in Nogiten. But, I think that's just time wasting because she rarely appear in Koujichuu. After all, for back row Under member like Junna, it is impossible for her to enter senbatsu and appear regularly on Koujichuu.
    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    I was planning to, when Yumi graduate. But then I couldn't let Junna go, and eventually, she become my main oshimen now. So, I think if she or Rena graduate later, I still has Kubo, after that there is Reichan. At least they can keep me in the fandom for long time, although maybe I won't enjoy Nogi music anymore.
    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    Not at all. Let the world know the true beauty of Junna!!!
    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    Not at all. Even if it is bed scene, I don't mind at all. As the fans of member that doesn't get too much chance in the group other than stageplays, Junna in drama is a blessing for her fans regardless of her role.
    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    I don't mind at all. If she love that man, I will support her. Even though she has to end her career as an idol, that is even better. I think she can do bigger project outside the group that waste her talent and beauty. However, I will be disappointed, if she has that relationship for her benefits, like getting better position in group or role in drama or stageplay.
    However, I don't feel that I have right to intervene her personal life. I like Junna as an Idol. I am not stalker or psycho. I don't have ownership of Junna. So, fuck you Bunshun!!!

    Who is your oshimen?
    Yamashita Mizuki. Also Kakki and Ayame but I main Mizuki so I'll just talk about her.

    How did she become your oshimen?

    Not really sure exactly when she became my oshimen but I've always liked her since 3rd gen was introduced. One thing that's different about idols compared to other artists is being able to follow them and get to know them through variety, showroom, blogs, etc. So I tend to like when I can follow an idol's career since the beginning. I've been following idols since around early 2014 but didn't really get into Nogi too deep until around 2016 around the time 3rd gen joined so I was excited for them and Mizuki has always been my favorite. I've been distracted by Hiragana/Hinatazaka but my kami-oshi just decided to up and leave so I'm more focused on Nogi again now.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?

    Not yet, but I will! I'll be in Japan in December at the time of the Nagoya HS event. Got two Zukki tickets.

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?

    Not much of a role I guess. I'm definitely more excited about things that Mizuki is a part of though. Songs, episodes. I also watch all of her showrooms even though my Japanese is like the level of a 3 year old. So she enhances my enjoyment I guess.

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?

    Not much at all.

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?

    Yes.

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?

    I don't think I would change anything. Maybe dye her hair a cool color like blue or purple.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?

    I would be a fan with or without her. While its fun to have an oshimen I never understood the "my oshimen graduated so I'm leaving the group" mentality. Are none of the other 40-something girls good enough to make you care at all? Like, if I'm a fan of a baseball team and my favorite player decided to retire early, would I all of a sudden stop being a fan of that baseball team?

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?

    No I wouldn't be bothered. If it was actually porn though (i.e. overtly sexual and not just a little nudity) I would be concerned about why she's doing it as it would be way way out of character for a Nogi fukujin.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    Lol no.

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?

    I wouldn't care. I live in America. Our celebrities leak their own sex tapes on purpose for publicity. The idea of a "relationship scandal" seems quaint to me.

    Ikuta Erika

    How did she become your oshimen?
    I think it happened when I realised I really admire her the most. She's so talented, has an easygoing personality, and I like the elegance of piano, classical music, musicals, and she does all that. And she comes from a wealthy family. She's a succesful, talented and lucky girl and that's the one that makes me think most "I would like to have a life like hers" or "if I was a girl of the group I would pick her".

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    No and I don't think it will ever happen but I don't mind.

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    I started to become a Nogi fan cause I realized I love the music, the members and the beauty, elegant style of the group. I think it fits my preferences more than other 48/46 groups. So my oshi is somehow part of this my preference but not the only one.


    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    It happens that I tend to follow what my oshi does. If she's on a japanese tv show I tend to watch it to see her, for example. But nothing else other that these kind of things.



    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?

    Yes, she's been really succesful and I think has always done the right things in these years thanks to her qualities and personality.
    It would've been perfect if she graduated from university too, but it would've been just an extra at this point. She probably would've sacrificed other important things for dedicating to uni, so I think she's taken the better decision.


    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    Sometimes I would like to see her more in her ojousama style, I would like to see her more dressed like a rich, elegant, lady with innate class.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    I don't think I will ever totally stop following Nogizaka, but I think I will care less about the group when my oshi and all the girls I am interested to follow will leave the group. Quality of the music will be an important factor too to still following or not the group.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    More than bothered I would be worried. Like, "why she decided to do that? She didn't need it". It would really surprise me and I would be worried that it would affect her image and her other works with musicals etc.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    No, I don't mind about it.

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    Like with the gravure, I would be worried to how that would affect her personally and for her work activities. I would think like "really? It's not like you need to stay in Nogizaka for more years, why didn't you wait your incoming graduation to start dating someone?"

    Who is your oshimen?
    Umezawa Minami.

    How did she become your oshimen?
    It was NogiMyu that introduced me to the Nogizaka members. My favorite Sailor Moon character is Sailor Jupiter, who is being played by Minamin and Noujo. I looked at press pics and found Minamin really mysterious. She’s so pretty and mysterious that caught my attention. I remember searching the whole web if she has any sns as well as watching clips of her. I just fell in love with her more.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    I wish. But I would start crying if I were to meet her.

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    A lot, actually. I wasn’t interested in Japanese music at all. I was more of a K-Pop kind of girl. But it’s something about Minamin that just really...grabs my attention. I saw her first performance at Music Station for Synchronicity after Ikoma graduated and that’s how I started to like Synchronicity and became even more interested in Nogizaka46. One of the best choices I’ve made imo.

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    Well, I’d say a lot...but also not very much. I watch a lot of clips of Minamin, I watched Kojichuu with hopes she’s in the episodes, I tune in to watch her showrooms and even re-watching her performances with 3rd Gen, senbatsu or even when she was in Unders.

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    Definitely. Sailor Moon Musical was the reason I started liking her. Then all of her magazine appearances never fail to blow me away. Everything she has done, her big projects, I’m a fan of.

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    I wouldn’t change anything about her. But I do wish she’s more outspoken, especially on shows. I love her voice so much I want to hear her more.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    It would definitely make me think if I should stop following Nogizaka or not. I do have other favorites in the group, Rentan, Seira, Kakki, Mayu. But Minamin is the reason I follow Nogizaka. So maybe...

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    Nope. If she’s comfortable with it then I don’t mind. But I will be a bot uncomfortable since I’ve never been a fan of explicit gravure.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    Not at all. I would definitely scream but then it’s just her job to do something like that.

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen iscaught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    Well...I would be sad because it will affect her career. But as long as she’s happy, then I will continue to support her.

    Habu Mizuho
    Who is your oshimen?
    My Kami-Oshi is Wakatsuki Yumi, and my current Oshi(s) are very close between Shinuchi Mai, Shirashi Mai, and Sakurai Reika. For the sake of this post, I'll just talk about Waka and Maichun.

    How did she become your oshimen?
    Both of them mainly came from NogiChuu. Wakatsuki's gag was always funny to me, and the shipping jokes between her and Reika always cracked me up. My standout moment was the start of the chopstick skit, and the NogiDoko valentine's episode, that went horribly wrong for almost everyone, including her.

    Maichun's episode (back when NogiChuu did member focused episodes) left a large impact on me, and I honestly have no idea why. I just loved seeing the environment that Maichun had to work in, and the black screen jokes always cracked me up. She's become great as her old lady character, and seeing her interact with Bananaman (especially the batsu point episodes) is a treat.

    In addition, something that Maichun has over Wakatsuki, is her singing voice, particularly on Minikui Watashi. I just really enjoy it, although Waka on Rewind Ano Hi also sounded great.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    Nope, and likely never will. Would love to go to a HS, but I have no money.

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    Not too much. I've always appreciated the music over anything, and then variety. While they were/are lovable variety members, my oshis are just a part of the experience, not the entire thing.

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    Not a lot either. I don't go out of my way to watch stuff, unless I have an urge to watch the office episode, valentine's, impersonation, etc. I occasionally go picture scouting to add to my collection of pics, but again, the group as a whole has a bigger influence on my day to day life.

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    Honestly, I'm really uninformed. I don't even know a lot about what they do. I know Waka is acting, and Maichun has a radio show, but that's about it. I mostly like the songs they're in? Oto ga Denai Guitar is one of my favourite Nogi songs of all time, and Minikui is nice as well. But outside of music and the variety stuff I watch, I can't really answer.

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    I would want Waka back, obviously. It was odd, while she was my Kami-Oshi, when she announced her graduation, I didn't react as much as I did to Reika's. I didn't cry over it, just felt crushed.

    For Maichun... I can't think of anything off the top of my head. She's great just as she is.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    Absolutely not. For me, Idol groups are music groups, first and foremost. I've said it before, and I will say it until I die, I will only stop following a group if their songs are constantly not good in my eyes. And Nogi has done a great job of keeping quality music. I said it above, oshis should be a part of the experience. The dropping of a group when your fave member leaves mentality is so bizarre to me, and makes me question why they followed at all.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    Probably not, unless it looked bad. I wouldn't be able to look at it without feeling a bit of shame, but I would respect what they would do. I would find it a bit odd and out of place, but it wouldn't stop me from looking.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    Not at all. I would be happy and proud that they get to show off their acting skills. I would just be jelly of who they're kissing.

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    I would be annoyed at Bunshun. They ruined the career of my Kami-Kami Oshi (Shida Manaka) and I think the whole "pure girlfriend image" of idols is just wrong (and I could talk about that for a little while all on its own). I would be annoyed at people who shame Waka or Maichun. I would be like that with anyone, really. They deserve to love who they love, and I would be happy for them.

    Saito Asuka and Shiraishi Mai

    How did she become your oshimen?
    I just love the way they are.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    Nope, I haven't meet them. But if there will be a chance why not grab the opportunities to meet them but maybe not. I not good at speaking. As a introverted person so I think I could never meet them. (It will be hard for me since they're my most favorite member buying they slot)

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?

    As for me I still saw them as a role model. (Sorry, I'm still new fans of Ashurin and Maiyan)

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?

    I started to change and appreciate the things that I love. If your asking about the things I'll appreciate well that will be a secret.

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?

    Nope, Why would I do that besides there's alot of things that I love that I didn't know they also love it. But there is one thing that I wish I could have Driver's license

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?

    No more, I love the way they are, so if they wanted to change I will still love them and I wish they will not overworking since that will be bad to theur health.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?

    Nope, Even though they will graduated I will still following nogizaka46, I love there music I love the uniform in every single. I love the way the interaction of all the member of each member so I will not stop following them.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?

    I haven't seen any of their gravure, if ever I did saw it. I mean I think its really quite embarrassing for me as a woman looking for my oshimen doing this kind of job. But if she really enjoying or she really wanted to do it then. I will support her.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?

    Maybe, I don't know its up for her, I mean doing the things she likes or doing something she didn't. That's quite new challenge for her since she didn't do it before.

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?

    First of all, it's their life, they should be able to date freely without us dictating them. Second, I’ll look into side story before reacting to the scandal, I’m not really into this kind of thing. I always think of the whole story before saying anything and if the story is true then I will accept it they're just human they're not robots that are programmed and needs to report everything they've done. Yes, they are idols that alot of fans love but if they have a scandal about dating and they really love that person, who are we to break them apart? Why not support them because it is their happiness? I will surely support Ashurin and Maiyan no matter what.

    Who is your oshimen?
    Saito Asuka

    How did she become your oshimen?

    I was initially drawn to her by how unbelievably cute she is. She was locked in as my oshi when I found out that her personality, sense of humour and outlook on life are eerily similar to mine.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?

    HS events sound like hell, unless we happen to be in London at the same time I don't see it happening

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?

    Nowadays I'm happy whenever any good news comes from Nogizaka, but I'll always be happiest when it's centred on her

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?

    Her habit of laughing uncontrollably at random things has rubbed off on me. If she appears on some show I'll go out of my way to watch, even though I understand basically no Japanese

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?

    I'm yet to find anything that I'm not a fan of, so yes

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?

    The shoes she's wearing in the 24th single promo pic, it ruins what was otherwise a beautiful pic...
    ...but seriously, nothing comes to mind, I wouldn't change anything

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?

    There are so many other members I like so I wouldn't. The music and shows are also way too good for me to stop enjoying them post-graduation

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?

    Nudity is off limits

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?

    I'd be way more excited to watch that be worried about the kissing scene (Ano Koro, Kimi wo Oikaketa was epic)

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?

    I don't care about these scandals, as long as it doesn't hurt her in the long term I don't mind

    This looks interesting ^_^

    Who is your oshimen?
    Hori Miona

    How did she become your oshimen?
    I think it was 2016 Rajira, i really like radio shows and found her funny.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    Yes, the fist time i met her i was so excited and ran towards her. she got scared and dropped the hand cream she had.( I realized later i must have looked really scary)

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    I buy her goods 1st. but that's about it as I was already a fan before i had a oshimen.

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    Aside from checking her schedule to see if there is anything going on, not much. ( But i do tend to laugh suddenly if i remembers something she said that was funny)

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    Yes

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    Her use of multiple filters when taking photos.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    no

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    As long as it not full nude and she was not forced into it i don't mind.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    No

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    I don't really care, i used to Oshi Milky so i don't really care about scandals anymore(unless it illegal)

    She can sing and pretty good at it

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    Nope. And never will. Even if I live in Japan and HS is just around the corner. Not my thing. Though I enjoy reading other fans' experience on the other thread

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    Hmmm...all I know is she’s the best member past, present and so far, future (4th gen). Even if it was someone else who triggered my interest to this group, it was her who sealed it

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    Not at all. Like most people, I listen to different music genre. It just so happen that idol music clicked with me and she’s my favorite in the idol group that I follow. I think it’s just normal to have a favorite. Movies, sports, music, etc. That’s all it is to me

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    Of course not, LOL

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    Nothing at all. That’s who she is, living the life she dreamed of. Doing what she enjoy most

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    If it wasn't for a member named Kubo Shiori, maybe. But, music is what led me to this group. So it will also depend on song quality they produce in the future

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    How much nudity? I mean not everyone have the same idea of what’s tolerable and what’s too much. If we’re talking about nude, nude, as in nude. I’ll be shocked maybe. Then move on like I don’t care

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    Not at all

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    Simple, she just need to graduate. Leave the group. As I said before I don’t care about this love-ban rule. But it’s their rule to follow. Although these days, seems like it doesn’t hold much weight anyway. Just the same, you deal with it, leave the group out of it. For as long as you’re in the group, it will pounce on you no matter what and it will have an effect on the group. Even graduates are being hunted for any small rumor, what more while you’re still a member

    That damm smile..

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    Unfortunately no.. Almost got a last minute flight on the day of her graduation concert despite being in the military at that point in time.. only to later realise that I have no ticket for the concert.

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    A pivotal role. Got me into joining this forum after years of lurking during the day of her graduation concert in order to continue with the following of Nogizaka46.

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    Got me into buying photobooks of her and other members. Not to mention, I tend to find random pictures or video of her online from social media such as Instagram from time to time that I've never seen before. This has led me to embarked on hour long searches (in the past) for the source of it. Which then further leads me to finding more and more and more.. This cycle has unfortunately or fortunately happened a few times..

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    Yeap pretty much! Glad she is doing behind the scene works/supportive roles that are not a heavy toll on her health. Aside from the graduation of course... Nah just kidding. It was her decision. I was very sad and disappointed but respected it nonetheless.

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    For her to be healthy and free from illnesses!

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    Still here, still following, still watching and still listening!

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    Nope. Wouldn't be bothered at all.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    Nope. Wouldn't be bothered in the slightest. I would be very much delighted instead that she has a role in a drama/stage play.

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    It's her life, her choice. I'll always support and respect her whatever it is. I'm just a fan.

    Who is your oshimen?
    i'll take 2 if you don't mind, Hori Miona and Yamazaki Rena (and pretty much the entire 2nd gen(ok that's more than 2))
    How did she become your oshimen?
    i like Miona because she can be very smart and very dumb at the same time, her character is just very fun to watch. and if we were to talk about specific moment then the 2nd gen episode from nogichuu (the older episode not the recent one) where they did the sport thingy where they have to do a bridge and Miona did that very disturbing laugh, and also the episode where the Threefold Choice trio went on a trip together

    i started paying attention to Renachi pretty much ever since she cut her hair short, i think her beauty and charm started to get to me at that time. her on stage performance always impress me, especially her facial expression. and also, it helps that she's a history junkie just like me, we like different kind of history, she like japanese societal history during the Bakumatsu period (mid 1800) while i'm more of a fan of the Military history and technology development around the 1930-1940s. and she has that very distinct voice and accent, which i love so much
    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    no
    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    Miona pretty much play the role of introducing me to the great generation that is the 2nd gen. i love every single one of the 2nd gen members, they all have different quirks to them and never makes me bored.
    Renachi is right now the member that pay attention to the most, i think she's a very interesting person, and also extremely pretty (especially with the short hair)
    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    i think the entire group influence me more than any single member, i love Nogizaka and that's what matters the most. although i will say that Renachi have encourage me to learn more about japanese history
    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    why would i not? both Miona and Renachi do stuff that they are passionate about, of course i'm happy about their achievement
    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    well Miona could start to have more confidence with her looks and not too reliant on makeup and filters
    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    no, as i say, i love the group, so i will still follow Nogi after my oshi graduated
    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    if its with the right context then why not. i think Renachi have said that she doesn't like showing of too much skin so there's nothing to worry here. and Miona, well as long as its for the right context then i'm completely fine
    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    not really no.
    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    well i'll be very disappointed, but that's pretty much it.

    all in all, i pretty much love all of the members from the 1st gen to the 4th, with a pretty large bias toward the 2nd gen. they have some of the most interesting character within Nogizaka46 and all of them has their own little charm that made me fall in love with them.

    So, yeah. This one is a tough thread to respond to. Multiple oshimen will make it... let's start with the kami-oshi.

    Who is your oshimen?
    Ikuta Erika

    How did she become your oshimen?
    The short story: one day, early in my Nogizaka wota career I just said that she is my oshimen.

    The long story... I was still kind of more a 48 group fan perhaps it was 55-45 split. Nogi not really catching my interest, but slowly growing on my. I did watch the subs for Bemars, but not yet fully invested in them. While watching Nogi Doko reruns you can't help but notice the adorable dork, Ikuta Erika. The IH incident. Opera introduction. Sphinx-kun. E.T. Yeah, she's everywhere on NogiDoko. Like Inception, a kernel of an idea gets planted in your brain: this girl is best girl. Then one day, as I was watching Ikuta provide the piano accompaniment for Mayuyu's rendition of 'Kimi no wa Kibou,' I just decided that Ikuta's my oshimen. She ends up being my Kami-oshi. She's still best girl.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    No.

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    She's the sharp, pointy end of the Nogi spear that pierces my heart with happiness.

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    Everyday I am thankful to know that Ikuta Erika is doing her thing the thought of which makes me happy.

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    I must be in the minority when it comes to Ikuta's musical duets on Nogi releases. Not my cup of tea.

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    I wish her ponytail game was on par with Nanase's, or even, Marika's.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    No.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    No. I own her last PB.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    No. She starred as Juliet in 'Romeo and Juliet.'

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?

    Bonus question!

    One day, you run into your oshimen all of a sudden. And not only that, she confesses to you! She loves you and she wants to spend the rest of her life you. She even speaks of early graduation, just to be with you.
    What would be your answer?

    Piano on Nogizakatte Doko sparked interest, since I really like Chopin, then cooking and art episodes following.
    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    No, only in dreams.
    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    Whenever I see her in an episode of Nogichuu, it immediately gets much better, even if the episode is kind of dry.
    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    Not much, I've never bought any idol goods (except a bottle of Fanta with Ozono Momoko's face on it).
    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    I can't really enjoy musicals, plus I don't speak Japanese.
    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    Bupkiss.
    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    No, I really like 3rd gen, so I doubt it.
    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    Gravure isn't really my thing in the first place, so I guess I would be bothered, but as long as it's not in my face all the time, I'm good.
    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?
    She already does that, and I don't really care.
    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this?
    I'd probably be a bit disappointed, and also surprised she would have the time for dating. Then, it'd probably blow over for me in the next couple of days. After all, my 2nd favorite member is Sayuringo.


    Bonus: One day, you run into your oshimen all of a sudden. And not only that, she confesses to you! She loves you and she wants to spend the rest of her life you. She even speaks of early graduation, just to be with you.

    Unfortunately, I'm still underage, so if she can wait 3 years, then that is a yes.

    Currently, Hori.

    How did she become your oshimen?
    She was right on the line followed ikoma's graduation. Like Ikoma, she's a slow burner as well.
    I get stole by her straight big eyes and 'deadpan' attitude like naturally grab my attention with her 'Watashi desu ka' moves. She self-proclaimed movie buff as well. so yeah, that's bob such strong personality right on my alley.

    Have you ever met your oshimen?
    No, i havent. zehe

    What role does your oshimen play in being a fan of Nogizaka46?
    lol idk. the meme queen of nogizaka?
    [​IMG]

    How much does your oshimen influence your day to day life?
    A moving oasis, amid the desert, the futility of life.

    Are you a fan of everything your oshimen does or has done?
    For the works outside modeling, not much really. Im actually, and honestly, barely interested with the project she has involved currently, that Zambi, her new movie etc. Not saying the thing was bad, but seems Hori still has long way to go on this path.

    Well my hope in the future she can established herself professional A-list actress or entertainer in Japan for years to come, hire in top notch production --well, critically, i hope-- that could be long way but i believe she has grip for that, at least for a career. She has the deep.

    If you could change something about your oshimen, what would it be?
    Maybe her taste of movie and the range of her works--job offers, I expect no more from the mgmt. She needs to expand a bit more of her catalog and also experiencing many kinds of performances(While she is like natural-born protag, it should not be limited as that). well, If I could have my way, I'll suggest her to see any of Hideko Takamine's if she hasn't.

    Would you stop following Nogizaka46 when your Oshimen graduates?
    Depend on. I have done this "internet fanboying" for a while, Nogi, in general, is just my current obsession. How long it will sustain, i couldn't really know. I could probably distance --not disconnect-- myself with, even when Hori 's still in the group. I can't have such patriotism in but fluctuate interest.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen did explicit gravure (containing nudity or otherwise sexual)?
    Depend on. I don't mind from what I saw in nogi so far. Play with borderline like ikuchan is PERVect. but to compare it with fully commit, frontal nudity--thing like that-- just plain tasteless, kind of degrading for idol standard imo.

    Would you be bothered if your oshimen plays a role in a drama or stage play that includes kissing or other romantic acts?

    I don't mind, or care. Well i don't really have much grip with romantic acts myself in general; I probably just skip the scene :p
    my problem, in general, is more like the stereotypical IKEMEN in Japan. kind of lame for romantic interest ain't it.

    Uh oh. Bunshun got a scoop and there is no denying it, your oshimen is caught dating and a scandal is born. How would you deal with this

    i guess its depend on? for example, if she caught dating a "character" that I hate my initial first reaction (of the reaction) should be a comical rampage (lol), to the guy, before I need to calm down and reach my overrated sanity. but if she caught with a guy like Kengo Kora, for example, well ... banzai :D. I'll defend her for that. She might just need formality for apologizing to her friends, mgmt and the so "respective" fans. She has these "commitment" , the demand for profesionalism, one should understand that, but public seppuku? my ass. the career itself is relative for this kind thing, some people ironically get a boost by, so...
    Again its depend on the circumstances, what kind of scandal happened and 'who gets who', it's hard to imagine what the future would be, but basically im not orthodox with the silly bonding rule of the idol. Nobody is perfect, just move on.

    One day, you run into your oshimen all of a sudden. And not only that, she confesses to you! She loves you and she wants to spend the rest of her life you. She even speaks of early graduation, just to be with you.
    What would be your answer?

    She is not deserving a low-life tbh, there won't be any good to tag around with a guy like me. I can't even protect myself... from myself
