HKT48 is going to be so gutted after this sousenkyo. Sashihara is on her way out-- I think she is just waiting for Miichan to leave first. Sakura is being ported off to PD48. Haruppi is never coming back-- or, she'll be back only long enough to do a graduation show. Mio's leg is never going to be 100% again, she is waiting until after the sousenkyo to announce graduation. Mao, Mina, Asuka, Anna, Madoka and Emily all didn't enter the election and probably on their way out. Mina is probably waiting until after PD48 to quit, that show is kind of her last bid and it is a longshot at that. Anna claims she isn't quitting, but once Sakura is moved from HKT48 to PD48, she might well change her tune. She did say she would quit if Sakura wasn't in HKT48 any more. Mao, Asuka, Madoka and Emily will probably each announce graduation at any given show from this point to sometime next fall. And that is putting aside anyone who entered the sousenkyo with the intention of it being their last event. By the end of the year, the group will practically be so gutted that it might be worth considering dissolving Team TII and dividing the members between the other two teams. Even if the new KKS get trained up and promoted fast, Team H and Team KIV will be left with only around 12 members each with no prospects to get any more any time soon. And since Nako and Miku are the only one successfully becoming stars and both on Team H, Team KIV will be especially dead.
