I really hope this Wota's reaction to AKB48 is a joke


Really, I do.

Unsurprisingly, the rain of "scandals" continues to pour on AKB48, this time due to Yuki "Yukirin" Kashiwagi having the temerity to attend a group party with *gasp* men in it, just days after the now-infamous "Mii-chan Affair".

To be fair, reports claim the party was actually a "goukon" or group date, which would technically be in violation of the AKB48 anti-dating policy, which, while problematic, is legal and perfectly within management's right to enforce.

And now one particular fan has reacted to Yukirin's sinfulness by going through the first two stages of the Kubler-Ross model of grief. The first minute or so is mainly denial, but clearly the anger/rage stage is most powerful closer to the end, with accusations of "backstabbing", "betrayal", and other fightin' words.

As I mentioned in the headline, I sincerely hope that this an attempt to parody the hardest-core Wota, lest we really end up with one more thing to add to Japanator's big list of Reasons Why We Can't Have Nice Things.
