    The lottery to win those tickets are going to be pretty crazy. I wonder if they're going to have any announcements.

    Sorry to burst in. I don't know if this is the right place but the Haruppi thread people have told me I need to share translations with the general thread since it's about more than just Haruppi (although I only translate things featuring Haruppi lol). I hope copy pasting is okay because I don't know how to do anything fancy like quote posts from other threads ;w;

    HKT48 SENSE OF CRISIS FOR THE [YOUNGEST CHILD] BORN FROM GRADUATION... ISSUES FROM THE DEPENDENCE ON SASHIHARA RINO

    On the 2nd of August, HKT48's 10th single [Kiss wa Matsushikanai no Deshouka?] goes on sale. Centre of the 8th single [Saikou ka yo] Matsuoka Hana (17), 1st gens Miyawaki Sakura (19), and Kodama Haruka (20), and the kenkyuusei who made 2 consecutive senbatsu Tsukiashi Amane (17), are interviewed.

    Held in Okinawa on June 17, only 16 of 46 eligible members ranked in the [AKB48・49th Single Senbatsu Sousenkyo](※AKA [9th AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo]). The number decreased from the 19 ranking members of last year, even after the 3rd consecutive victory of Sashihara Rino, she expressed being [frustratingly disappointed].

    HKT48'S ENCOUNTERED PHASE

    ----- The facts are, with the younger group NGT48 debuting in April of this year, the results of the preliminary rankings, as well as the final results, their momentum has become evident. And on the 1st November, the 6th Japanese sister group STU48 is planning to make their debut as soon as possible.

    With 6 years since the group's formation in 2011, the [youngest] group with theatre manager Sashihara Rino to aid, who continue to demonstrate their presence with [powerful] live performances as their weapon, HKT48 has entered a difficult stage.

    In this ModelPress, we ask the girls to speek frankly about their feelings following the Sousenkyo, as well as their thoughts on the current situation of the group.

    I'm linking to the full translation because it's super long and I don't want to reformat everything for here.

    Also, for those not aware, we're working on the Haruppi 21st birthday book and would be super happy for any messages even if she's not your oshi since she's had a pretty difficult year. Information on that is here: http://stage48.net/forum/index.php?threads/kodama-haruka-21st-birthday-project-♛.19836/

    HKT48'S 10th RELEASE IS A RIGHT ON CLASSIC IDOL SONG. DIRECTED BY A 19 YEAR OLD THE MV IS A MUST SEE PT.1

    ----- Based in Fukuoka, HKT48 finally releases their 10th single [Kiss wa Matsushikanai no Deshouka?]. Beginning in 2011, having only recently celebrated their 5th anniversary last year to think those girls have come this far is very emotional, and even more so for them. Especially the 1st Gen members, face this single with particular emotions and feelings.
    Miyawaki: It went by in a flash. But, even now there are times when I rewatch our debut MV. As well as reminiscing I find myself thinking, [At this time we were still just 1st and 2nd Gen]. Now the number of members suitable for centre position has also increased.
    Kodama: Although I have been included in all senbatsu selections until now, for the 10th single, there was a sense of rush for the 1st gen. Since 4th Gen members are included in this senbatsu, I can feel a new wind blowing. Even the faces of the font members are changing

    ----- This singe, as evident from the title [Kiss wa...], is a central idol song. Matsuoka Hana also returned to centre since the 8th single [Saikou ka yo], and the song was made to match her.
    Matsuoka: I was happy, but I was also anxious. Mostly, I was concerned about the results of the Sousenkyo which were held in July (At 80th place she barely ranked). In the Prelims I ranked outside of the rewarded places (<81st place), and I thought I was okay with my shortcomings. But, because it was our milestone 10th single, I feel like I need to be proper.

    ----- The MV director was Matsumoto Hana, a student at Keio University. This 19 year young film director who has features in film festivals abroad, and has been attracting interest within the industry. With the full version already released, it had become the most sophisticated work of HKT48 so far.
    Kodama: When talking to her, she was a very proper, and sincere director.
    Matsuoka: There were a lot of acting scenes. I also had a lot of lines, and I shouted things like I like you to the ocean (beam).
    Yabuki: There's a scene were we shout spoken lines starting from Haruppi (Kodama) going one by one. By connecting all the lines, it turns into a confession.

    The confession scene at the climax was filmed with a drone, and the MV pulls you back into a world of adolescence, so please check it out. It's a fresh perspective, one not found in previous works of the 48 Groups.


    -----​


    It's not really an interview but that's what they're calling it idk. Continuation is here http://imgur.com/a/EUIWJ because again, reformatting sucks


    -----​


    There's a lot more to come but I'll only post them if people are actually interested in reading them. I'm only translating them to fill the Haruppi void in my heart since we've been starved of Haruppi content this year. I have quite a few finished translations from this year, as well as from really early HKT like 2012/13 but that's probably not relevant to what anyone wants to know right now... So please let me know! Because at the moment I think I'm the only one who reads my own translations lol

    Just a hint. The rules say that one long post is preferred to three posts in a row. Either wait for someone to respond or wait 24 hours between posts. Here are some quotes from the Aanya thread:

    Thanks for the information. I've combined the posts into one so it should be okay now? I don't venture outside of the Haruppi thread much and they're a bit more lenient so I never know quite what's right. I also thought it might be easier to read them as seperate posts since the articles are pretty long. I've tried to fix the layout a bit to help with that idk.

    And again, I will only post translations if they're wanted. Fixing images and text for forums is a pain and I'm bad at it so I don't want to waste my or anyone else's time if no one wants to read these. Personally I think they're kind of interesting but I might be the only one

    Thank you!! In that case I'll plop some more here.
    I'll link out to where I originally posted them because copy pasting removes all the line spacing for some reason idek
    I have more Haruppi ones but I'll keep those to the Haruppi thread so I don't bore you here. Saying that, two of these are Sakuruppi oops
