Whenever she laughed, everything would fall into place.
17: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 22:20:37.30 O
Her ambition as a performer was almost nonexistent — but that’s what made her so appealing.

It feels like she’s right there… and yet she’s not.

She actually has the 5th longest tenure of the group. Longer than Iida or Yoshizawa even.
116: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 22:48:11.89 0
She was the mild-mannered, simple beauty type. The type loved by wota.
147: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 22:54:21.04 0
She wasn’t amazing. She was simply way too cute to be of this world.
163: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 22:58:06.13 0
I think what made me like her was how everything about her was so normal. It wasn’t that there was anything particular that was so amazing about her.

Seeing Michishige’s sense of loss at Kamei’s graduation, I was sure she wouldn’t last in the group much longer. And yet, it’s now been three years since then and she’s grown into a fine leader.
182: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 23:03:13.13 P
It made me feel so lonely when she dyed her hair from brown to black during the Rival Survival tour. Suddenly there was that feeling of her impending return to being a non-celebrity… Anyone know what I mean?
188: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 23:04:34.75 0
That must’ve been her way of coming to grips with it all. Like, “there’s no coming back to show business after this…“
189: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 23:05:17.36 0
She was one of those “THE woman” types. She always came first place when the group was asked “which member would you most like to have as your girlfriend?“
239: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 23:21:46.31 P
She was poke poke puu.
244: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/14(土) 23:22:19.68 0
She was a fool, she was a slob and she was an overall hopeless person. But even then, she had a charm about her that made you feel she was just adorable.

When Eririn laughed, she’d soften the atmosphere around her. Her presence wasn’t very strong, and yet, you’d always be looking for her.

Kamei appeared on Takahashi’s blog a while back (Sep 27):

Just how amazing was Kamei Eri? Do tell.

Definitely do watch the Eric Kamezou videos. You’ll get yourself a lot of chuckles and you’ll understand what was so funny about Kamei.
26: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 17:44:35.54 0
She was an idol amazing enough for Sashihara to place her on a pedestal of a god.
36: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 17:48:24.11 P
Sorry to say this, but at the end of the day you won’t get it at this point. There’s no way to understand how amazing she was unless you actually experienced it for yourself while she was still there.
37: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 17:48:42.58 0
Her way of doing things in the fashion of “I’ll just half-ass it and everything will work itself out somehow…” was something that really resonated with the wota.
41: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 17:50:03.92 O
To someone like me who often thinks along the lines of “if only this girl’s skin was a bit more paler, she’d be so much more beautiful…” or stuff, I never felt anything like that with Kamei. She’d already transcended that kind of thing.
43: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 17:51:13.91 0
Whenever some tiny little event happens, everyone is going “could this mean Kamei’s comeback…?!” That speaks about her impact.

That’s because Eririn was too damn cute. I can’t help myself.

She had a warmness about her that left you speechless. A girl who could really heal you.

There was just this human kindness oozing from her character, her voice, the way she spoke, her behavior, her facial expressions… Everything about her was cute and ideal — so much so that you felt like wanting to become Kamei Eri yourself.

Long or short, any kind of hairstyle suited her and looked cute on her.

She was a girl with absolutely no feeling of “I’m going to be better than this girl!“
68: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 18:03:10.39 0
I was an Eririn wota, but there was nothing in particular that was amazing about her. There was nothing in particular… but somehow she just made you love her. That’s the kind of girl she was.
76: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 18:05:34.30 0
She had the courage to go “here, let me do an imitation!” and doing an impression of something that absolutely no one could recognize, like the alarm clock their family uses or something. Or she’d munch on something only to spit it out.
78: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 18:05:42.27 0
It’s not like she was the best singer or anything, and while she was good at dancing it’s not like she was miles ahead of the others, and man, she was just so weak-willed and such an airhead! (laughs)
But… it was her I really loved the most…
83: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 18:06:59.20 0
On first glimpse, she just seemed irresponsible. The same goes for any media appearances of hers, aside from when she was on stage. And yet, people like Sayu and Gaki-san have talked about her strong-willedness that she had buried deep inside of her…
97: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/01/19(日) 18:10:54.83 0
She had more lines than I even remembered. Just how many times did I listen to Kimagure Princess on repeat…?

I went to an Eririn-Junjun-Linlin event and I remember seeing how Eririn led JunLin so skillfully and thinking to myself just how much she had grown.

When I went to a handshake event with Kamei just after she’d debuted, I remember being terrified by her angel-like smile.

Eririn was of course cute, but I felt like she had something about her that even drew out the cuteness from the people standing next to her.

I liked the photobook from when she was 17. Wasn’t it on that bonus DVD where there was a foreigner who made her get all embarrassed by saying “you are so cute“?

She wasn’t an amazing idol, and yet, she was the best idol there ever was.
Henkka: I suppose a fitting answer to the question posed by the thread title would be “quite.”

ou yeah my fav musume ever
she’s just really amazing, at first I’m not really intrested in her but for unknown reason suddenly I became her fan
everything about her is cute,her “aho”ness really work well as her charm
she’s just so adorable,and I really like how she’s as slow as her name [kame=turtle]
to sum up she’s just aho-kawaii
She is LEGEND.
Period, Nuff said.
Until now, I still don’t know what’s so amazing about her, but I love her to bits. Just so endearing.
I always thought everything was amazing about her. She was really under rated. I loved her super quirky sense of humor. People thought she was air headed, but her sense of humor was just weird.
She was also incredibly cute and beautiful, and had those sexy “crush you with love” kind of thighs.
It’s hard for me to pick between her and Sayu for H!P’s all-time best comedian.
my fav member of all time. Eririn <3
The Japanese should make an idol hall of fame and put Kamei Eri in it!
Think i almost cried reading this thread… Thank u henkka, best post ever…Im gonna rant a bit
Kamei Eri was the greatest idol that has ever lived, she transcended to a level where her amazingness couldnt even be comprehended anymore… She wasnt the best at anything yet she was great at everything, no other idol could be as all around amazing as she was… She was a complete slob, idiotic, airheadish, had no real will power to do anything and did everything with a half assed go with the flow mentality even to the point of wearing mismatched socks with holes in them because she was too lazy to match them or buy new ones… Yet SHE WAS THE FUNNIEST IDOL I HAVE EVER SEEN, absolutely gorgeous, amazingly skilled at dancing, and had arguably the 3rd best voice of her Momusu era behind Ai-chan and Linlin…
You know your something legendary when the current #1 idol in japan Sashihara Rino worships you like a god… She talks about Kamei on a regular basis and even to this day watches old Kamei Dvd’s and concerts… Fans to this day still pray for her return to the idol world even if its a one day only thing… We all secretly hope that on Shige samas graduation concert we here the Ookii Hitomi music play and get to see our goddess once again cause that realistically is the only chance we have at seeing her on stage again
“I liked the photobook from when she was 17. Wasn’t it on that bonus DVD where there was a foreigner who made her get all embarrassed by saying “you are so cute“?”

kamei is very different.. she was very kind and honest..she is kinda ‘stupid’ because she is kamei..she didn’t become other person..she come to entertainment world with that image..and thats why i still respect and miss her until now and hope i can get more news about her..i don’t know what me like her so much..maybe because she is DIFFERENT..she is natural…i didn’t found any japanese idol that i really respect except she and aragaki yui..miss her so much..i love the way she become herself..
