Itsumo Genki Considers What It’s Like Being Gocchin

Just a Casual fan « .

Isilie has written a wonderfully thoughtful essay here, taking a very measured look at Goto Maki’s career and what she’s gone through in her years as an idol. I think the emphasis on being a “casual” fan may be the key here, as she is empathetic without taking sides for or against her past decisions at H!P or her recent decisions at avex. Not that a dedicated fan can’t do the same, but the distance in the voice actually makes one feel closer to Gocchin from the effort Isilie exerts to understand the idol’s perspective. A very nice bravura piece.
