Even though it’s Christmass, I would like to remember you all of the fact that today it’s exactly one month ago this beautiful young man’s journey took a way that’s different from ours. Because I want my words to get in everybody’s head somehow, and because I admired him so much, I will be posting some pictures of our dear Frank Wolf every month on the 25th, to show that he will never be forgotten.

If I only knew the stupid bullies who got him so far to take his own life, they would not survive, I can tell you that. This month’s pics are all with his cute pikachu-suit on, which I like very much =^_^=

The world is missing you, Frank! We loved you yesterday, we love you still and we always will! I hope you’re in paradise now, or just wandering around on earth as a gost so you can teach those monsters a lesson!

Mamemaru is one of the most famous lady in Gion Kobu, not the most famous but she has a great reputation.

Mamemaru start her geisha life in the Shibata okiya (this okiya has formed a another successful lady, the retired Mameyuri). Her misedashi was the 14 May 2009 and her erikae the 25 November 2013. She made nearly five years. Her One-san is probably the geiko Mamefuku but I’m not very sure…  Her beautiful name means “Perfect bean”, personnally I love when the name of a geisha is with “-maru” (mean “perfect”)  inside so I love “Mamemaru” .

During her maiko stage Mamemaru became quickly famous but less that her okiya sister Mameyuri. But Mameyuri is really most older that Mamemaru so it’s probably normal. So, Mamemaru is a good player for shamisen but her dance is a best. She have a very graceful movements and her fame with dance is deserved! You can see a dance where the 3 picture are taken here.

Now that she is geiko, she is  one of the most famous dancer in Gion Kobu. Yet, she don’t have a little sister, sadly. I think she can to be a very great One-san. But the Shibata okiya have just geiko and Mamemaru is the most younger geiko in Shibata. Her okiya don’t have a shikomi.

I hope the best for her and a shikomi soon.

I really hope you like this, it’s hard to do it again but i love made this format of post *-*
