The day is near.
I was planning to do this since I planned for Ikuchan’s in this year’s first half. Well, many things distracted me to prepare this properly since the beginning, so I’ll do it as I prepared last night.
At first, I was planning to to the same like I did on Ikuchan’s; cut some scenes from TV program and gather them into some categories which became Maiyan’s trademark. But it would take too much time. So I changed the plan into “posting some IkuMai moments that mentioned in Maiyan’s blog”. Not only that, I will also add some trivia in each post. So let’s start with this ‘Oshimen’ first.
Actually I haven’t heard/saw Maiyan said that Ikuchan is her oshimen in a TV show. But she was saying it in some interviews.
Here goes what I’ve discovered
Shiraishi Mai’s Oshimen: Ikuta Erika
Ikuchan is very cute. She’s good in singing, can play the piano, even good in dancing. She also has a nice style. In other words, she is perfect. Only one minus point she has; she can’t cook (lol). I’m older than her so she talks to me as if I’m her big sister. And that is another cute part of her. If people ask me to choose one member as an oshimen in Nogizaka46, no doubt, it’s Ikuchan for me. source
Next is from a magazine interview
Let’s give it a zoom
Question 8: Your oshimen in the group?
Ikoma: *immediate answer* Nishino Nanase-chan! She’s an angel.
Shiraishi: Ikuchan (Ikuta Erika) maybe?
Sakurai: Higuchi Hina-chan
Hashimoto: I’m a DD. Oh, but please make it as Saito Asuka if it’s needed to be narrowed down (lol).

◎How is Ikuchan like in usual times~?
She is honest, but sometimes she turns into amusing person. I don’t know why she is always praising me.
Ikuchan’s night spririt is very cute, you know?
Oh, wait. She is ALWAYS cute.
What can I say? She is my oshimen after all!
140805 To The Next(o^_^o)
There was an announcement of 10th single senbatsu members
And then, Ikuchan welcome baaaack!
I’ll support you as center. Let’s do our best and enjoy it as you like!
Ikuchan is my forever oshimen. I love youー♡
“I love youー♡”
OMG I NEED AIR!!!!
There was a time when Maiyan is almost oshihen (change oshimen) to Minami. She stated in her 755
Konekotan (fan): Who will be your next oshimen after Ikuchan?
Maiyan: Lately, I feel that Minami is getting cuter and cuter. Everytime I gave her some clothes, she always give back something to me. Yesterday she gave me chocolate (T ^ T)♡ She said that her mom insisted her to give it to me…(T ^ T) It’s ok if I don’t get anything though (T ^ T)
But in the end, her oshimen is still Ikuchan. Proof? If you are a regular reader of this blog, I’m sure you already read this one as well, right? (I’m too lazy to rewrite it so please refer to the attached link m(_ _)m )
That’s all I could share this time. You can add more trivia regarding this topic by submitting them on the comment section, mention me on twitter, ask me on tumblr, anything! I’ll gladly wait and open my arms for it.
Well then…I’ll continue subbing another episode to upload on my other blog. See you later!
