When will an idol have the courage to be color-coded brown?

25 Feb

64cDid you know that scientists have discovered a total of 64 colors in the universe?

That’s a lot of colors!

You can say that again!

That’s a lot of colors!

Yet even though there are 64 colors in the universe, in the 300 year history of idol groups, only 12 or 14 or 17 have ever been used for color-coding.

That’s a lot of colors! Wait a sec, no it’s not!

Exactly, and take a wild guess which color has never been selected.

Brown and neon brown!

Exactly! And since you’re a SUPER☆GiRLS addict you’re probably aware that there have been recent changes to the group involving the lineup and color-coding. And take a wild guess which color wasn’t chosen by a single member.

Brown and neon brown!!

Exactly! Evidently super-perfect idols with super-perfect creamy skin are toooo good for brown and neon brown!

lrd2sDo we really want to live in a world where an idol group has two girls who are color-coded yellow, two who are blue, and two who are white, yet not a single member representing the color brown? Brown may not be super-kawaaaiiii and no company will ever manufacture brown glowsticks not even for a million billion dollars and brown has been voted the worst color in the world 20 million years in a row, but brown is a color! And it’s about time an idol is forced to be color-coded brown!!

I bet Koume would look great wearing brown!

koume bOMG (Oh my GEM), you’re right! Super long kawaaaaiiiiii… but needs more neon brown!


Letter to the Editor

Hi Billy! Long time reader. I loved that editorial you wrote about SUPER☆GiRLS cookies. That article was cookietastic! No pun intended. Anyway are you going to mention that you predicted Koume would join SUPER☆GiRLS back on December 20, 2013? – Charles from Iceland

Hi Charles from Iceland. Thanks for writing! My name isn’t Billy though. But to answer your question, I’ve decided not to mention that I predicted Koume would join SUPER☆GiRLS back on December 20, 2013. Predictions aren’t about being accurate, they’re about having fun!

    For a while Haruna Iikubo’s color in Morning Musume was brown. Well, it was called “chocolate” to sound cuter. Her wota would hold up candy bars instead of a glowstick. lol
    I guess Idol Street isn’t as mean as Hello!Project to force brown on someone.

    It’s heartwarming that an idol had the courage to be color coded brown. Even if it was only for a year. But that’s just a technicality. I knew an idol would eventually be color-coded brown – you can’t stop progress. But did I think it could happen so soon? No. I never dreamed that it would happen in my lifetime.

    This reminds me of PASSPO’s failed new member audition from a few years ago. The producers asked Makochan to change from pink to brown, in order for Misa-Misa to become the new pink member. The plan was for Misa to be the new cute member, and Mako-T to be the “sassy” one. Makochan was supposed to be graceful about the transition, but long story short she refused, started making a big deal about it in her blog, and Misa-Misa ended up not joining the group. Ever since I thought certain color barriers would never topple. But from 2011-2012, an actual human female idol was color coded brown. That’s so GEM!

    There really needs to be a movie about this. And I know just the person who can play the part of Haruna.

    Mano Erina.
