    Rumours aren't scandals, and prior to a certain incident private message exchanges weren't forbidden. (I don't know how common they were exactly, but Erii definitely wasn't the only one doing it.)

    Uh... no? I think you've misremembered what that particular non-incident was supposed to be about. Even if it had been private messaging instead of out of context public comments, we're not talking about every random thing fans get themselves upset over but actual scandals.

    I wouldn't know about the SKE incident, but they've always been at once more and less strict (seemingly at random) than any other group so it wouldn't surprise me if some of their members got punished for PMing fans. The HKT incident had a lot more going on.

    if you are talking about the quote where Miichan says Sasshii should get a new haircut ... that's the Mechaike Kimatsu Test special which gave us BKA48

    I can remember some scandals, which almost happened, but lead to nowhere.

    Yuko Oshima once got caught with a handsome shorthaired guy. ;) <--- this was the most ridiculous one and tells you a lot about the quality of japanese yellow press "journalism".

    There were stubborn rumours about Itano Tomomi dating Takahiro which were renewed after a mysteriously tattooed bizeps was flexed in her blog.


    Miyazawa Sae accidently sending private messages to her Mobame, explaining it with daydreaming.


    A Johnny Jr. visiting Sae's appartement, which she luckily shared with her brother.

    Kobayashi Kana going to conbinis with Johnnys.

    Takamina and Mii getting silly with staff at a birthday party.

    Ikemen guy showing up at Sato Aminas and Chikano Rinas karaoke session.

    A number of rumours about Yokoyama Yui, the Eito version.


    There are also incidents for which i couldnt find the source anymore, but they have been a thing for a few days, e.g. Kuramochi Asuka coming for the rescue of Takajo Aki after a misclicked private message, or a bunch of wota bragging about getting private LINE contacts of HKT48 members incl. Sakura, or Jurina eating expensive steaks at midnight.

    But there were also very difficult ones, which didnt appear on the list above:

    Tomomi Kasai allegedly dating Kubota Yasushi, graduating shortly after. <--- that was actually a very bad one.

    5 HKT48 members resigning.

    An SKE48 Kenkyuusei suddenly resigning over private pictures, possibly revenge porn. (not linking due to NSFW).

    There is also a episode of golden hour show NEP league with Yuki, Sae, Mii and Paru in which member told Mii she had to shave her head again if she wouldnt be able to answer a question.

    At this point, Tomomi had already announced graduation. I wonder sometimes if this had already been going on for a while and she announced her graduation because she knew Bunshun had found out about and were on her tail, or if started after her grad announcement and she didn't care to keep it that private anymore.

    I think some of these are not to be taken too seriously; the Kikuchi Ayaka one maybe, but Miichan telling Sasshi "she should have shaved her head like me" seems like an obvious joke :^^;: Also the attached screenshot looks like it came from a variety show.

    The comments that HKT48 members made about Sasshi are from HKT48's documentary. I don't remember which one, but I assume their first one. I remember their comments about Sasshi and someone else also said that she was glad Sasshi joined because Sasshi was the only one who had direct contact to Aki-P. Nobody in HKT48 had his phone number and nobody was able to contact him in case anything was going wrong, so they started to feel grateful for Sasshi managing everything for them.

    Like I said, it wasn't a huge deal but it was enough of a big deal for people to write about it. Obviously nothing happened to Erii, it didn't impact her career whatsoever, but some local fans felt a bit disappointed, probably because they didn't receive the same treatment.

    I'm not sure I agree on this one :^^;:

    Also, not sure if this counts as a scandal, but since @rka brought up the sudden resigning of 5 HKT48 members, I also still wonder what happened to those three Eitos that suddenly left as well

    About the Kasai thing .... to be honest, the dating ... meh .... but the allegations of bullying, the feeling of privilege, lack of work ethic and behaviour towards her kouhai ... that's possibly the worst part of it
    (what's maybe even worse is the unnamed ex-member willing to spill the beans though)

    I frankly admit I'm not a big fan of Kasai ... the whole chuu thing just kinda irked me, so I'm prejudiced enough not to be too surprised if it all turns out to be true.

    ow, and in a group with so many adolescent girls ... you can't convince me there is no bullying
    for sure while pretending to be bff's there must be girls who truly hate each others guts

    (and it's not something only girls do, I've spend 14 months in military service, put people together and you will get cliques and people being ostracised, I've seen it happen)

    There are so many moments where people made fun of Miichan's traumatic haircut, even by her Team 4 kouhai, that I simply lost count, but I do think it as was kind of a watershed moment, after that PR disaster management could not just simple fire members or force them to resign anymore as everybody would be referencing Miichan's scandal all over again.
    (and every once in a while it's dragged out again anyway to criticise Japanese Idol culture here in the west in newspapers that will on the next page gush over how awesome BTS and Black Pink are .... cause being consistent is not a thing :) )

    Ooh really I didn’t know it was that special. And didn’t gave us BKA48 that’s really good to know thank you.
    Hmm I see I guess they made the comment because they wasn’t comfortable yet with anyone joining and was scared if she was transferred one of them would be transferred after they been with each other since the start of HKT

    I never knew about the other ones the only ones I heard of was the takamina birthday one the kasai tomomi one and the second sae one and team 8/k yui Yokoyama

    Wasn't tomochin announced her grad WAY before the picture? So her graduating because she knows bunshun have something about her does not make sense to me.

    Also, the Yuko and Sae picture is the most hilarious scandal ever.

    ModelPress has put on their Instagram a quiz in which you have to answer who the eyes of 12 48G members belong to:
    https://www.instagram.com/p/CKn4v7crLIF/

    Three pairs of eyes are shown followed by the answers, then the next three pairs and so on. They've also published an article about the 12 members' eyes:
    https://mdpr.jp/news/detail/2405026

    I'll paste a Google translation in the spoiler as it contains the answers to the quiz.
    1 Furuhata Nao
    The first eye is Nao Furuhata of SKE48 , who is gaining popularity for his boyish looks . In addition, she served as her first center position in the group's 25th single "FRUSTRATION". Contrary to the cool shortcuts, the cute rounded eyes are impressive.

    2. Shiroma Miru
    The second eye is Shiroma Miru, who has passed as the first member of NMB48 and has been stable and popular as a core member of the group . At live performances, many fans were shot by their powerful eyes. In addition, the wide teardrop bag and the sharp, tight eyes have a sensual appeal.

    3. Matsuoka Natsumi
    The third eye is Matsuoka Natsumi, the captain of HKT48 / Team H , who has a strong support from the same sex for her outstanding style and visuals, such as acting as a runway model for the "Tokyo Girls Collection" . Matsuoka's eyes are adorable with her eyes moistened like a puppy and the mole under her right eye. There is no doubt that her ennui look will be nailed once you see it.

    4. Takino Yumiko
    The fourth eye is Takino Yumiko, who is in charge of the center position with STU48 's debut single "Darkness" and continues to lead the group as " STU48 's face" . Its outstanding transparency, such as clear eyes and fair skin, is likely to attract more attention as the "next generation ace of the AKB48 group".

    5. Matsui Jurina
    The fifth eye is Matsui Jurina, who has long supported the group as a regular member of SKE48 / AKB48 . In February 2020, she announced that she would graduate from the same group and received a great deal of feedback. The sharp inner corners of the eyes and the sharp shape of the eyes further accentuate her dignified beauty.

    6. Tanaka Miku
    The sixth eye is Tanaka Miku of HKT48 , who is steadily gaining popularity, such as being ranked 10th in the "AKB48 53rd Single World Selection General Election" . The lashes that grow straight up and the clear eyes create a gorgeous and lovely atmosphere.

    7. Shibuya Nagisa
    The 7th eye is Shibuya Nagisa, the captain of NMB48 and Team M , whose high talk skills are highly evaluated and her solo appearances on variety shows are increasing rapidly . The cute "half-moon-shaped" eyes are a perfect match for the warm atmosphere. Her lovely smile heals many fans.

    8. Suda Akari
    The 8th eye is SKE48 / Suda Akari , who has the nickname of "Queen of the Handshake Event" for the first time in response to the god, and is also sought after in TV programs by taking advantage of her charming personality .
    By adding "troublesome eyebrows" to the moist eyes, it gives the impression that you want to protect it somewhere. Seeing her squinting and laughing seems to give her some energy.

    9. Moriyasu Madoka
    Eyes of No. 9 is to release the "My inside of me," her first solo piano album in January 2020, also active as a pianist HKT48.
    The round and wide eyes and gentle eyebrows, which are characteristic of her beautiful visuals, create an elegant and calm atmosphere.

    10. Homma Hinata
    The 10th eye is Homma Hinata of NGT48 , who was selected as the grand prix of AKB48 group x "bis" x SHOWROOM audition and is currently a regular model in the magazine "bis" .
    She has cute eyes like a doll, such as cat-like eyes that shine like crystals and eyelashes that point upwards.

    11. Kawakami Chihiro
    The 11th eye is Kawakami Chihiro, the captain of NMB48 and Team N, who is expected to play an active role as an actress, such as a guest appearance in the drama "Enmado Sara's Reasoning Kitan" (2020, NHK) . Its beautiful looks and unique career as an experienced figure skating person, such as the nose that goes through the wide double-width tight eyes, have the potential to be "found" in the future.

    12. Ishida Chiho
    The last 12th will release the 1st photo book "Lemon Season" in December 2020, and will be in charge of her first center position in STU48 's 6th single "If you talk to yourself" (released on February 17). Ishida Chiho is gaining momentum .
    Ishida has a cute tear bag and eyes that tend to sag. Her glittering eyes grab the viewer's heart and never let go.

    They post this kind of quiz quite often, I remember seeing this about AKB only members a while ago. I recognised 10/12 members back then, only 5 out of 12 this time ._.

    i have a random question, is there still a member who is fluent in english in the japan48/ Sakamichi groups?
    Because I think Goto Rara was the last fluent speaker.
