Wow, the tale the lead of Big Angel tells is tough. Trying to be a model and always being forced to lose more and more weight. Some burgeoning body positivity in a country that expects conformity.
Good to see some stirrings of body acceptance over there. They might be half a joke, but that is often the step, I think :-/
Yes. First Pochamani, and now this. It's good to see.
Japan has had a fat tax for the longest time. Now Russia is mulling over it also. I can understand why they do it though.
"According to their official profile, the Big Angel girls are 'obese angels' who fell from heaven after eating too much. Now they’re singing and dancing on Earth as an idol unit in order to lose weight so they can return to heaven again."
Rather puts a damper on the initial thrill, ね (ne)? How is losing weight to get to Heaven a positive message for "plus-size" women?
That's interesting, Dan! It was not included in the original entry that I saw about them, and I did not delve into the group's background beyond that original post.
Well, Angel "Mi-chan" says so in the YouTube video that you linked to; check out the clip at the one minute, thirty-two second mark.
Man, even in Heaven, big girls can't catch a break! What the . . . ?!
I agree with YT respondent "Lost Things" who wrote "HEAVEN DOESN'T DESERVE YOU, IF THEY ARE WEIGHT LIMITED."
more cupcakes and beer in hell anyways ^.^
I hear the parties are also better.
If by "cupcakes" you mean "empty cupcake wrappers," and by "beer," you mean "abusive, angry bartenders."
And no. Heaven has no weight limit. So says St. Thomas Aquinas; himself a very big dude.
Llàstima que no n'hi hagi cap morb (vg. youtu.be/5jx4dDPzfzM). És una perversió de la llengua que només puguem parlar d'aufils més o menys prims o grassos, més o menys jóvens o vells, mascles o femells, eca. Per això es fan dir 'el grup més gras de j-pop'. Em recorda el cas de Fat Boys: un morb de tots tres (Buff Love). Constitueix l'extermini gras de règim lingüístic, que va de bracet amb el del règim sanitari i tots altres. -jordi
Too bad that that no member in the group is a *fatone (see youtu.be/5jx4dDPzfzM). It is a perversion of the language that we can only speak about *thinones, who are more or less fat or thin, more or less young o old, male or female, and so. So that they say 'the most fat group of j-pop'. It reminds me of the case of Fat Boys: a *fatone of all three (Buff Love). It constitutes fat extermination of the language regime, which goes hand in hand with that of the sanitary regime and all others. -translate.google, multilingue.cat, en.wiktionany (The sign * means circumstantial translation attempt into English of human nouns of 'fat' and 'thin' respectively -'morb' vs. 'gras', and 'aufil' vs. 'prim' in catalan.)
Oh, that St. Thomas! Whatta party animal!
oh cruel ..id lick the wrappers @@
