So I’m a closet wota. I have different accounts on my laptop for when I’m at home and when I’m out of the house.
When I’m home, I use the pervert account that exposes me as a H!P wota. The background image is of a H!P member and when it starts up, it plays “Konnichipa.” On the account that I use when I’m out, the background image is that of a harmless kitten. I’m hiding in plain sight, see.
However, I fell asleep, forgetting about my laptop being logged in to the pervert account while it went into sleep mode. The next day at my university classroom I sat in the front, opened my laptop and the sounds of “Konnichipa” resounded throughout the entire classroom. Meanwhile, the people behind me saw my background image of a bikini-clad Maimi.

If it’s come to that, you might as well just say screw it and go all out with your H!P wotadom.

I just don’t understand why you’d use something that gross as your start-up sound.

“Konnichipa” sure is nostalgic.

At least Maimi’s still an adult so it’s fine, isn’t it? You would’ve gotten a different reaction had it been a more loli-ish member.

It’s not like university students these days have anything against idols anyway.
15: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/28(土) 12:16:17.89 0
Even with the “Konnichipa”, if you’re a university student there’s nothing wrong with a Maimi background image. Even if she was wearing a swimsuit, you would’ve just been thought of as the quiet dude who likes gravure idols, at worst. What gave you away as a H!P wota was your reaction afterwards.

If anyone recognized Maimi, that just makes them fellow H!P wota. You’re fine.

You should not have used Konnichipa.

There’s nothing wrong with a university student looking at a beautiful 21-year-old girl. So, now go and experience real embarrassment and do the same all over again with Funaki as your background image.

Even if they aren’t popular, girls like Karin-chan-san or Kuduu would’ve exposed you because of their loli-ness. But if someone asked “who’s that?” about Maimi, you could just say she’s an actress (which is not necessarily even a lie).
30: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/28(土) 12:38:46.53 0
He’s just trolling. It’s not like having Maimi on there would expose you as a H!P wota. They might think you like idols though.

You never know… perhaps there was a cute girl wota in that classroom as well.
At your next class, she’ll sit next to you, lean over and whisper into your ear…
“Watashi wa rose quartz…“

Does the “Konnichipa” actually make you a Koharu wota?

It’s not the picture that was your problem; it was your behavior. If you’d acted all brazen about it, no one would’ve thought anything much about it.

I go to uni with a Sayashi keyholder attached to my pencil box!

No one aside from Momochi or Michishige would expose you.

If it was a medical faculty, you could lie your way out of it by saying “I was simply quite taken by this person’s biceps and abs, so…“

I was exposed as a Zukki wota but I was able to avoid any further problems (I think) by saying I see her as if she was my own daughter. I act confident about it so nothing’s changed and even my female boss has started talking to me about Musume. But if they found out I’m actually in love with her, I figure I’d be pretty much erased from the office.

Don’t worry; I’m going all “Rihoriho this” and “Rihoriho that” at my university, too.

It’s more enjoyable and you’ll be much more at ease if you just come out. I always make it a point to introduce myself as a H!P wota, too. Some of them even buy me goods for my birthday and stuff.

There’s quite a lot of girl wota. Everyone I know to be wota at school are girls. (laughs)

You don’t hide it because it’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing because you hide it.

“If you say liking an idol is something embarrassing for you, you’re also making that idol’s existence an embarrassing one. So cheer for them, and be proud!“
…as spoken by Kanyon.
Henkka: I was going to write words of consolation to the opening poster about how it could’ve been worse, but then I reminded myself of what Konnichipa actually sounds like.

LOL… Glad nobody knows of my Jpop Idol obsession yet… I got private and public accounts set up on my computer… Kamei Eri is actually the background pic of my Google chrome web browser and my favorites tab is full of H!P, AKBg (mainly HKT), and Momoclo sites
Tend to slip up a few times and almost make references about the idol world to normal people and forget that they’d have no clue wut im talking about… Almost referenced a momusu song when i heard some music playing at work and forgot that would be impossible for it to be on a normal american radio station
At least his startup sound wasn’t the Koharu orgasming bit of the song…
At least it wasn’t
I think that song would call for some harassment of the OP, simply out of sheer necessity
I’d die of laughter if someone whispered “Watashi wa Rose Quartz” into my ear.
I’d feel obligated to counter them with
“DAMN YOU ROSE QUARTZ!”
just to see if they frequented this site…
I used to make video games. I was in Japan, meeting with our developers. There was me (designer/writer), a project manager, and a translator from our side; and two directors and a designer from the Japanese company.
I had picked up a porno DVD from Akiba the night before, and forgot it was still in my laptop. When I turned on the laptop, the porno started back up – with audible sound. I quickly closed the laptop and looked around. No one seemed to notice. I opened it again to try to close down the video player, but it started up again. It was almost comical. I finally just hit eject and that seemed to solve things.
Nobody let on, but I can’t imagine they didn’t hear the moaning coming from my speakers.
I’m not embarrassed about being a momusu fan. Most of my friends know I like them, and I’m very open about it with my wife. I made my own t-shirt through an online site and wear it with pride (and I get compliments from strangers). My stance is: It’s only weird if you make it weird.
But I guess “wota” take it to entirely different levels. I’m still kind of naive to the whole phenomenon. I don’t even have a favorite, though I definitely have a top 3 (Maa-chan, Duu and Riho).
“I definitely have a top 3 (Maa-chan, Duu and Riho).”
So the loli-ish members :)
Those loli members are going to be the best-looking members in the next 5 years or so ^_^
Plus there isn’t a person alive that can resist Maa-chan. TRUTH
She already looks so much like a young Ishikawa Rika, IMO…
That’s a solid Top 3 you’ve got there, good sir!
Mine would be Maa-Riho-Daaishi
And I know what you mean about not having an exact favorite…they’re all talented in their own unique ways.
I wouldn’t consider myself a wota, but when my Dad used my mobile phone and saw a Mano Erina wallpaper. I had to explain that she isn’t as young as she appears.
use the lewdest mano pic you can find. she doesn’t look that young in those pics. :P
Something similar happened to me when I was still in high school. I was always listening to my IPod, which was full of jpop and kpop songs, and a girl who sited beside me asked to look through the library. I didn’t want to, because I didn’t want to explain to her why I listened to asian music, but I let her take it so I wouldn’t seem unsociable. I regret that to this day. Of all the 800+ songs that were in my IPod at that time, she picked W’s “Ai no Imi wo Oshiete” to listen to. I’m a girl, but I still wanted to die of embarrassment. Even today I can’t listen to this song without remembering this situation and getting frustrated all over again.
but…that’s a good song!
The problem, IMO, lies with people that aren’t used to such a “genki” type of song.
I say all this, yet when my sister randomly picked “Robo Kiss” to play from my iPod I felt the same kind of shame…LOL
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er53yZtUH7w… like this?
I’m pretty open about my fandom, (got two friends into it in fact.)
The only time I felt slightly awkward was when a girl on the train asked where I got the Momusu shirt I was wearing and then stared at me because I explained the lengths I went through to get it.
Your otaku was showing, that’s why LOL
While my friends don’t mind my idol fandom, it’s unfortunate that I don’t really know anyone else that’s actually into idols.
Talking to others online in places like this has its limits, or at least feels that way to me
(not that I dislike talking here or anything…)
OP made it embarrassing for himself by acting embarrassed. MM is always on my laptop wallpaper in some form or another and it’s never a big deal. Most ppl will just ask “oh who are they? some korean girl group?” and that’s all.
I do the same for the cellphone wallpaper and people hardly show any interest; they assume it’s just some random asian celebrity
OP needs to learn to be proud of his hobbies, IMO
Hahaha oh shit yes!
I’m not sure if he could have fucked up any harder, well maybe if he had a loli as his background instead (Rihoriho!)…that’d easily alienate him from the rest of the class, LOL
I’m growing my Peaberry plant on my closet….
I usually hide the fact that i’m a momusu fan, especially to japanese friends. I just mentioned them one time to one of them, since she likes momoclo i thought it was ok to say it.
Also I feel really lonely about not having any wota friends ( even online D: )
I’m the type of fan who doesn’t like to shove my fandom down others’ throats (unlike some jpop/kpop fanboys/girls I know). I just have Momochi on my phone’s wallpaper and some other beautiful (classy) pics in the phone’s albums to cheer me up. Whenever someone sees my phone’s wallpaper I just say she’s a singer in Japan, and they usually don’t ask anything else. And when someone asks what kinda music I listen to I just tell them that I listen to mostly jpop/jrock. They don’t need to know anything else honestly. Only those who are fellow fans of japanese music will ask more, and usually they understand. I guess it depends on where you’re from too.
Someone asked me once who is that girl on my phone (rihoriho) then someone said “It’s kaori-san! Veggie is inlove with Kaori-san!”
I still have no idea who the hell is kaori-san
iida kaori? First generation of Momusu? Successor to nakazawa yuko as leader.
1> at least they know he’s not gay? but playing any segment of a koharu song is bad, man.
75 is my hero.
Agreed. I hide from nobody my wota status on that very principle. And some do think I’m crazy or weeaboo or pedo or dorky. It’s there problem. I feel sorry for them they are missing out on a flavor conveyed by nothing else in the history of the world.
My friends and colleagues know that I’m a Momusu wota, at first I was quite embarrassed but after a while, I’m no longer blushing for my passion in Momusu. These people do make fun of me once in a while, but they know when to stop…..especially when my venomous tongue starts taking over me. Thanks Chayuuuuuuu for being a good teacher! :P
oh, i am really a yajima maimi fan, (i really like her but i don’t know if that is considered as wota because i cannot buy their singles, dvd concerts, photobooks, cannot attend concerts and hand shake events because i am not living in japan) i only download them.
but for me, just be yourself and be proud of it (because it will make you feel, contented). You cannot please everybody with your explanation. just tell them, if someone notice it, what you really want to to tell. (but if the explanation is R18), use a physiological explanation. (n_n)…
I exposed myself since day 1 that I like J-music. It has been good 16 years with no regret
wow… you’re the man. I mean, wota.. n_n
