Hype is real
Hirate Yurina (Centre)
Lmao @ Yurina as a center of an AKB song.
As expected! At least for me.
also! except Juritan, all 48G members are from AKB! really, not AKBGSakamichi < AKBSakamichi!
The two front 48G members are HKT and SKE...
No one's excited for Hori + Miyawaki?!
Or was it expected? Lol
I like Techi, but unbelievable she 's center. This is AKB single, but only 6 members from 48. Even font girls aren' t AKB mem. I'm not fine
But I'm also looking forward to the song, what kind of music, what concept
So, it's 1/3 48G and 2/3 Sakamichi. Interesting... I feel like it should be on a Sakamichi single as they have more members in it tbh. A Keyaki B side would work best as Techi is center.
From 48G, I think the criteria is somewhat clear. They are choosing the young high ranked member + 1 rising star from T8. The other group? I don't know.
Anyway, the problem with AKB is as long as Mayuyu and Yukirin is still active, it will be hard for the young member to fight directly with Sakura and Jurina. As for Techi center, I have a feeling that it isn't merit or anything but they want to retain Hirate image as an absolute ace. I don't hate Techi but I hate management for it. Nogi is in worse position tho.
Anyway, each group has 6 reps. Right now the biggest positive from my view is that from AKB side they are counting on young member (Jurina is the oldest and she is still 19).
I think this song will be like SaiMajyo 2.0
Hopefully they are fair in terms of screen time and not turn it into Techi and friends. I'm not saying this just because I like AKB more, but by centering an AKB song, Techi will definitely get a lot of hate. By making it Techi and friends? I don't really want to put that kind of burden on such a young girl.
That's just a photo from a Keyaki B-side.
From the title this is going to be a simple, cute song.
@Rurouni I get what you mean. She has a lot to lose as well as gain if they overdo it there.
I like the lineup, but really surprised that they give Techi the center spots. More like, someone from 46 the center spot.
Cute song centered by Techi might literally be a killer song.
@Rurouni But if you say each group has 6 reps, then you're counting Keyaki and Nogi as separate groups but all of 48G as one. Either it's Sakamichi and 48G, so give them 9 reps each, or it's each sister group individually surely, in which case we need NMB, NGT and so on. 7 groups total, so maybe 2 or 3 reps from each would work.
I do agree about the young members though, that is a positive, although as an idol Jurina has been around forever!
Keyaki 6 is they who sold out ALL their slot at first round in 4th single.
Nogi 6 is...their future ace? It's a good 3-3 balance on 1st-2nd gen though.
?? keyaki b-side? no, they haven't this costume, scenery or you mean from 4th single? title is just title!
I'm not sure but I am pretty sure I've seen that picture already. And it looks like Harada Aoi is there who isn't in this senbatsu.
Also the title doesn't suit a cool song... at all.
The collab is AKBxNogixKeya and AKB is basically 48G. So it is a collab between 3 groups. I'm just surprised form AKB side they don't get more. It doesn't have to be 50:50 between 48 and 46, but like 8 from AKB and 5 each from Sakamichi.
Anyway, when the center is Techi and one of the front member is Jurina, I really hope it will not be a cute song... at least a mix between cute and cool. We will find out about it real soon tho.
