    Lol...

    To be fair, when I heard KnP with an increased tempo, it sounded a lot better.

    If only they made the song a bit more fast-paced, might have been more fun to dance to.

    Some questions: I understand for Miichan not participating since she announced graduation, but what happened to Naachan?
    and where can I find the full list? Are sister groups also participating? Sorry if there's already an answer to these questions, I couldn't find.

    I'm glad to see Zukkii, Satopii, Rei and Erii being sold out since they're getting a push and I hope it works! I wonder how Omori Maho did?
    Really happy to see Renacchi sold out too, at this point I don't expect her to get her push back anymore, but I'm glad to see her do well <3

    I had to search who is Team 8's Akari, and it turns out she announced graduation, I'm surprised that she's participating in this.

    I'm not sure why Naachan's not participating, maybe she's doing something with STU? This is the link to the list of participants for this event:
    https://akb.kingrecords.co.jp/images/57th-akb48-online-0313-schedule.pdf

    Unfortunately I missed out Mahopyon from my list, she sold out both of her slots and I've added her to my post above. The results can be seen until Monday at the following link at the Chara-ani website:

    Nowadays member are less likely to participate if chances to win are slim. It does take a LOT of money to win.

    Nice to see that Maeda Ayaka sold her slot, I'm so sad she is leaving because she was one of the few that I knew from her generation and I really liked her ;_; it's also nice to see Manaka sell, I like her too! Good job to other girls too even though there are some that I don't know very well >.<

    I'm surprised at the lack of candidatures for the photobook competition... Even if the girls are not sure to win, this feels like everyone either doesn't care, or gives up before even trying. I don't think it's a very good way to think... What happened to their motivation? Competition is a way to get more popular, and getting a photobook is a really good promo too. I don't know why there are so little members who apply :/ This kinda represents the image that I have of 48G in recent years. That generally, there's a lack of passion/motivation...

    Seeing the current list, I think that Miion has the best chances to win.

    If you read the replies and quote retweets on the announcement for the extension, a couple people are upset bc nowadays its a new competition every month for something that doesnt reap bug rewards while fans spend big money. also upset that its become a full cash grab(smth abt akb no longer releasing music).

    i can understand that frustration because as much as I’d support komi if she joined, this kind of stuff is really draining. atleast the actual elections gave lots of content during and after, from appeal videos to more sns presence and then after if they ranked it would bring the girls into more jobs/media exposure.

    so i think its on both the idols either not wanting to compete or maybe theyre tired of these mini elections every other month, and the fans

    I understand better now... I'm not aware of all the little competitions, but yes it makes sense. I don't understand why management doesn't just bring back elections if they want to make competitions and make money? it's the most simple way and it's popular, it brings attention to the group, and more sales for singles.

    and yes I agree with the frustration about the group not releasing music... I still don't understand why they're announcing new singles and not even announcing any plans... This is all so weird? I really wonder what is management thinking right now, this whole situation is really a mystery.

    Well I guess this competition won't be popular then. There will still be a winner in the end so that's nice for her. But there's a lot of frustrating things about the current situation of 48G... We're already in March in a few days and 2021 is not really looking better than the previous year so far. I'm not usually pessimistic but it's difficult to stay positive after such a long wait.

    When almost every other jpn48 group has released a new single it gets frustrating. its definitely because of the drop in sales theyll have, management just needs to accept that it’ll happen and release something or else they’ll lose more fans.

    and with all the competitions, last month it was akbingo neo, this month is a photobook(for stu, akb, nmb, ske) & in stage fighter a real time mystery game during the summer is happening at the same time. but stage fighter always has competitions, but atleast the winners get decent rewards(a stage performance created by first place, and last summer it was a shoot in flash platinum)

    management doesnt even try to push girls anymore, its all about how much money they can get and how little they can give back. if they took advantage of what some of the girls want to do(modeling or acting) it would be great, and some of them push hard to try and get these jobs (komi with larme and the competition over the summer which management kept saying no to until they finally allowed it)

    im glad ixr and two of the other units are getting attention, but i wish theyd push the other units too. there’s so much potential in each of them and management keeps dropping the ball bc if they gave that band unit another performance, or let sensuality model, gratz could do video game streaming or smth, it could do wonders for them.

    also they have been uploading performance videos on their ouc48 channel and some of the videos have hard subs at the very end:


    sorry if this post is long winded or makes no sense(or even if some of the suggestions i made wouldnt help, bc thats probably true) but ive just been so frustrated with how management is working.

    It's the same problem why a lot of member hates SSK especially. It's not about how hard you try. It's more about how hard can you beg your fans to throw money at you. Lately a lot of members has come to resent that. They want to do it by themselves, by their own power. That's why Singing competition is much more popular with the members. Or even the event NMB48 is currently doing.

    Also with NMB48 fans rallying being one or two girls and grab top spots for most pay-to-with events in the last two years --- I don't blame those fans, but it's no longer really fun when you know who's going to win already. It kinda was a problem in AKB48 too when a few members would win every events, but lately those members kinda stop participating. It stops being fun, and it utterly destroy motivation of both members and fans.

    KnP > KFC

    *runs like hell* (Though tbh, I was feeling that way when KFC was being performed over and over and over and over again 2 years ago).

    But anyways, still always believe Kibouteki Refrain should have been the SSK Single that year and not what begin the new versions of KFCs that we got for the next 4 years.
