But idols sang a lot better back in the 80's compared to now. Most idols now try to go for the cutesy, moe sound. I don't like it. I love idols from the 80's. Their voice and songs just sound better. Sadly though, Onyanko club was the one of first appearances of AKB48 like idol groups which lead to what we see now. They were Morning Musume. It's because of groups like these that the quality of music in Japan dropped. Though I do admit that at one point morning Musume had better quality in vocal talent and looks turn out than AKB48.

 

As for the reason why this video looks plain, it's an AKB48 idol group. Even AKB48 idol group performances in my opinion are plain and the music is...well, ugh. That's why I don't like large idol groups. You get a mixed bag of people who are really talented and those with only so-so/poor talent. 

 

while i don't like almost AKB48's music but this video is even worse.

 

> bad voices

 

> bad looking

 

> bad lyrics/bad song

 

> bad performance

 

to be honest, i don't like anything from this video, so the reason why those girls in the manga crazy about them is a wonder to me.

"I don't like it. I love idols from the 80's. Their voice and songs just sound better."

 

Convincing argument. Doesn't sound biased at all!

12 chapters. Slow motion indeed

Thank you for the link, I'm going to have to check this one out for fun... I could use a big shot of unadorned, nostalgic vanilla. ^_^

(I've been watching too much modern fare - for the first 30 seconds, I was half-expecting a "drop" where you find out that the cute girl is really a grandpa. Or a mental patient, or a lizard, or maybe all three. D'oh.)

 

Spoiler

I realize "No, you!", misreading the plain meaning of someone's words to your advantage, and gaslighting are the fashion of the day - but I'm not fond of dignifying them, since doing so almost invariably leads to more of the same. 'Cheers, and happy reading.

Spoiler

No shit!

 

And it took him "only" 12 chapters to notice!

JESUS FUCK, THIS ISN'T SLOW AT ALL.

It is also about the 80s of JAPAN. A lot of the references are going to be lost on many of the readers here so of course you may not connect with them.

I don't see why not knowing references is a bad thing and turns people off. It makes me learn something new because I look it up. Same goes for games that get a reference changed in localization.

I still like the art and the characters are... Okay... But the way some 80s pop culture reference is awkwardly shoehorned in every chapter is annoying.

It seems a little strange to do so much guessing about what someone is thinking (when they didn't say any of it) in order to criticize their point, then reluctantly admit that the point they made is valid. (But then go back and criticize their imagined mindset again.)

 

I didn't do any of that, though? I wasn't arrogant enough to guess at what he/she was thinking: I clarified that if they were complaining about scenes like those at the end of chapter twelve they're missing out on a major aspect of the main characters' relationship. I also never "criticized" the point that it's shoehorned in some chapters; in fact I find Chapter's 11 inclusion of the 80s shebang to be a little out of place.  The only thing I disagreed with him/her on specifically was that this is particularly annoying or that it detracts from the overall quality of the mangaI find the references valuable and unique enough to be enjoyable even when they are quite forced.

 

You did "so much guessing about what I was thinking(when I didn't say any of it) in order to criticize a point" I wasn't actually trying to make, missing the mark woefully and making your claim that I'm strawmanning deliciously ironic.

No shit!
Only 12 chapters in the MC admits he is in love. Looking at you Re:Life.

Cover Art now looks much better

Yeah I stayed away from this because the cover art was ridiculous.  If someone hadn't linked one of the panels I probably never would have read it and would have missed out.

I find it odd that you complain that "some 80s pop culture reference is awkwardly shoehorned in every chapter" when the whole premise of the series is about two teenagers who love 1980s pop culture. I mean, really, after reading the description of the series (see above), I would find it strange if there wasn't a plethora of 1980s pop culture references in every chapter.

 

It's kinda like reading a baseball manga and complaining that they play or talk about baseball all the time. Or reading a martial arts manga and complaining that there's a damn fight in every chapter.

Those who watched RTL2 in the 90s remember this one

If you're talking about the stuff at the end of chapter 12 with the cat and the pipe and similar occurrences(like Sabishinbou) then you're missing the point; they feel "awkwardly shoehorned in" because the characters are awkwardly using them as excuses instead of being honest.

 

Admittedly there's a few scenes where the author pushes the 80s thing a bit too hard but that's what makes this manga relatively unique in the first place, so you can't blame them.

It seems a little strange to do so much guessing about what someone is thinking (when they didn't say any of it) in order to criticize their point, then reluctantly admit that the point they made is valid. (But then go back and criticize their imagined mindset again.)

 

The tone definitely makes it seem like the author places the 80's on a pedestal above the rest. But really it's no different from an interest/sports club manga, the manga is about people who are fascinated and pushed by a shared hobby.

 

As soon as you look at it in that view point, you start to share in their happiness, especially in chapter 11!

Nice comparison.

 

What makes me a fan of Cross Game, Touch, and other Adachi Mitsuru works aren't forced references to baseball that don't really further the story*. What I love are the characters and their interactions, told with baseball as the "skeleton" of the story.

 

Similarly, I don't love Slow Motion for cramming in references to the 80s even when they don't really fit - I love the characters and their interactions, with the 80s being what helps tie it together.

Sonoko is like a cat.

Chapter twelve and I can't fight this feeling anymore from REO Speedwagon go really well together
