    Well, considering Mahohon saga is not going to end soon and AKS has their own problem... :fear: rip ogiyuka and inapooh's dream to be #1

    Plot twist: 48G SSK is replaced with 46G SSK this year

    Well, if AKS really hate money, they should not make 55th single as Sasshi's grad single (with so much gimmicks) :whistle:

    Noooooo! Not on the year I'm in Japan and a good chance for Jurina to win again :(

    Oh well.

    Objectively though, I like to think they are planning to do something fresh and make everything exciting again.

    Unpopular opinion:

    i think;

    1. NGT's issue might(more like will) affect NGT's top
    2. AKS needs competition, who would compete with Jurina w/o Sakura, this year SSK would be much of "Jurina's back-to-back win"
    3. Not confident enough that HKT will retain their remaining top member / push members


    i think if this year's SSK will be held, AKS and fans would be surprised by the result.

    WHAT... :shock::shock::shock:

    First they end AKB48 Show! after 5-6 years of airing, then they end ANN after almost 10 years, then their radio drama Watashitachi no Monogatari is ending after 8 years of airing. and now suddenly elections are over too? this happens all at the same time, it's so sudden. if they cancel elections, there is no limit to what else they can cancel. I wonder what's their plan after all of this, if they're going to have new events or programs? Hopefully they do... are they trying to give a new image for AKB? after years of talks about new chapter, this time it actually does feel like a real new chapter for AKB, but hopefully they won't just struggle and they'll actually get something to replace all these cancelled programs/events...

    I guess no more elections is less stressful for the girls and it might bring some positive sides to the group/members, but it was still the biggest, most relevant event of AKB. and the thing we looked forward every year. Now it feels empty ._. I'm kinda sad about all the things happening lately, so I just hope they will announce new programs or events soon, and hopefully they have good plans for AKB if they want to have a new start, for the music as well I hope they make everything better from now on, let's see... if they do this well then it could be a fresh new start for the group. I really hope so.

    Believe me, there is no shortage of girls privately celebrating this turn of events.

    What? To gloat? Well, I have made it no secret for a long time that I hate the SSK. So yeah, I am sorta happy with the news.

    Ya know, with all the bad press this group has endured over the last year, not to mention all of the significant members who have departed, or are about to depart, perhaps it is time to reinvent this group, and that includes getting rid of the SSK.

    Reserving judgement until we get more information about what's to come, but this is definitely the last thing I expected to hear today. I'm tentatively optimistic about the change, though! As long as they come up with something to fill the void (that's less stupidly stressful for the girls), I'll be happy.

    For sure. As I said on the NGT assault case thread a while back, the SSK is a distorting event that sucks up inordinate amounts of money, attention and focus.

    but one potential downside of no SSK is that if the august single is replaced by a management selected one then it might just benefit the management favourites and disadvantage other girls who benefitted from the SSK (Muto Tomu, Souda Sarina, Furuhata Nao et al).

    That was odd. Ten and out? I don't personally care for the result any longer but it was the big event of the year. We can only speculate about the reason, because as usual AKB don't tell us. NGT? Maybe. Difficulties to hire a suitable arena? Last year they were a bit off in Nagoya.

    The next HKT and SKE single sales may benefit from the SSK not sucking up spare money

    NMB fans can finally stop feeling guilty seeing our faves not rank lolol

    I don't know how to feel about this.. It's hard for me to believe the group isn't going through some financial issues after the Maho incident stripping them of their sponsors and cancelling 48 related shows. And then to have your top members from AKB, NMB, and HKT graduate or go on hiatus throughout the year, making the AKB senbatsu unrecognizable to even casual AKB fans... The group (more specifically AKB) needs a complete overhaul and maybe this is the first step to achieving it. The janken and rh are kinda redundant now, so some new events that don't stress the girls out too much will be welcomed.
