As the sun set on a decade, tears of Country Girls faithful were dried by the promise of a new tomorrow. The COUNTDOWN PARTY went as expected (unless you were watching a certain stream) and we welcomed the new days.
A day passed without fanfare, the calendar having hit the Refresh button to mark a new beginning. Of course, as expected from the start of a winter tour, an announcement was made:
I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now: Kobushi Factory subleader Fujii Rio will be graduating. Soon.
My initial reaction was basically South Kai in first scene in the Broly Abridged Movie (particularly 0:22-0:32… or 0:48. Also, language warning. Then again, if you’re familiar with Team Four Star’s work this may not be necessary).
Yeah… I took a quasi-hiatus from Twitter for the sake of my sanity (don’t ask) and despite getting weird vibes of something akin to this, especially regarding Fujii Rio (I honestly don’t why these things happen!), this was out of left field even for me.
“Am I psychic or something?!” I cried in my head. It was just so strange, knowing I thought about Sengoku Minami and her long tenure, reminded of her in the names of the current trainees.
However, despite the uncomfortably warm day (it was the first fully sunny and warm day in what felt like weeks. It’s been a very rainy and cool/cold April for me), it was set to worsen. Sure, rain was in the forecast, but… not at all like what’s to come.

Welcome to the fifth part of the Precision Past Perspective edition of Ping Pong Pinpoint. In this little post, we cover the year 2013. Shall we blast off?

Greetings, Magical Meteorites and other Earthlings who happened to drop by! As noted in a previous post, I am going to cover the interim of my hiatus (March 2009-February 2014) in a special series of posts.
So welcome to the Precision Past Perspective Edition of Ping Pong Pinpoint.
According to Time and Date.com, it has been (with the final date itself in parenthesis)…
4 years, 10 months, 27 days (4 years, 10 months, 28 days)
155,001,600 (155,088,000) seconds
2,583,360 (2,584,800) minutes
43,056 (43,080) hours
1794 (1795) days
256 weeks (rounded down)
…since my last contact. (I’m not counting that rather useless Stay Tuned post, which I may delete at a later time. It should’ve been a page.) Therefore, we have a lot to cover (or in some cases, relive) so let’s get the show on the road, shall we?
