    I am excited! The beginning of the end of the 4th Gen hegemony... LOL! (I'm just joking with you 4th Gen fans!)

    A group of 2 or 3 at a time? This is going to be weird.

    Already? Why not focusing on 3rd and 4th gen first since there are still lot of members and they're full of filler, unknown ones, while the popular ones are so distant to the glory of the top original members? Nogizaka is so done. It had a good run. Watch AKB regain the throne sooner than later at this point.

    Funny, why are u still here then.

    I think its still too soon for sure but it will still be a while before they officially join anyway, during that time starting with the next single coming i hope the management can sort out the lineup(by adding 4ki to under) or it will be messed up when they enter.
    Other than that, definitely more grad coming soon :fp::fp:

    They'll be down to 39 members with Momoko as the latest to graduate and by the end of this year, I expect 2-3 more will be graduating. So an additional 10-12 generation 5 is expected since they've been keeping their number close to 46.

    Personally, I love this news. Future center here she comes :^O^:

    Remember when Nogizaka was praised to be a group with fewer but more quality members compared to AKB? Where is that concept gone?
    AKB's last new gen has been the 16th one in 2016 and we didn't have a new one since then. In that meantime Nogizaka had 3ki in 2016, they added 4ki in 2018, 4ki 2.0 last year and now we're having another weak gen on a group already full of unnecessary unknown members. Management has really ruined the beauty of this group and what made it so special.

    Is the age limit usually 20 for these auditions?

    ^^Around 20 members for each team A, K, B and more from team 4 and 8. Do the math and complain once Nogizaka reached more than 60 members. It would be wise not to drag another group in the discussion just so you can insult (again and again) Nogizaka members you don't like.
    As for "weak", "fillers", "unnecessary", "unknown", well dear friend that is according to you. It's the same old song you've been playing for eternity now.

    Imagine comparing with a group that have more than double the amount of members nogi have(and even if 5th gen join its still less)and already saying its a weak gen before they even enter [hehe][hehe].

    By what u mean "beauty of this group and what make it so special", they already grad, get over it, we know ur ideal by "quality member" are only the members in past senbatsu anyway. If you dont like the future then stop being a fan or just be silent, u can bring ur ideal to other idol groups.

    So you're saying you had 15 gens before that in an 11-year period then? I don't think Nogi can manage 11 auditions next year to catch up

    At least akb seems has now learned from its mistakes, while Nogizaka is following the same path that made AKB more and more irrelevant. Quantity over quality. Just to keep high sales even if most of the members will be just a mess. Guess I'm just gonna support Hinatazaka now. They're doing great the way I like. I still like some Nogi members but the group is declining since a while, I'm not interested on most of the current girls, and can't support anymore management's decisions.

    Yes, as far as I know Sakamichi always had a 20 year old age limit for auditions, the girls that entered the group at 21 only did so because they had their 21st birthday after the audition. I certainly remember some members who said this is “their last chance to be an idol” when they decided to apply for the audition while being 20 - I’m certain Tamura Mayu said it, I also vaguely remember Watanabe Rika from Keyaki to have said it.


    I’m actually really happy with this audition because I think the group needs something new, fresh, after all these major graduations one after the other. Honestly speaking, hate me for saying it, but the 4th generation was a bit disappointing for me, especially compared to the 3rd gen or Keyaki/Hina’s 2nd, so I hope this generation can be more interesting. I would especially like some good singers, but I realize I am getting my hopes too high knowing Nogi management regarding this subject.

    Sorry to intrude, just a question.
    Did they said if the girls will held SR between August and December or if it will be only mngmnt decision?
    Thanks

    No word on if they’ll have SHOWROOM auditions. aid you check out the main audition site I believe they give a rundown on what happens for the audition. Don’t quote me as I don’t understand Japanese though. So YMMV

    I checked only now and it says nothing about SR. It seems to be a thing between mngmnt and potential Nogis for now.
    Thank you anyway :chuffed:

    Wow that's interesting, 20 seems a bit young imo.

    Who draw that Nogi triangle? Ikuchan or Tamami?[hehe]
    New members mean it is the time to use my old-busted brain to memorize members name, face, and kanji!:D I hope Nogi get the best+weird member.

    Hello Project only allows girls up to 18 to audition. Until recently they only allowed girls up to 17. Personally I wish there was no age limit, but I guess one reason they have one is to reduce the number of applications.
