    "I feel, I had enough here. Many dreams have been achieved." = I can't see I'll get interesting job offers from outside. There is nothing new left for me to do.

    "If there is a chance to join JKT48 Operational Team (JOT), I will support JKT48 from behind." = Incomes of me and staffers aren't much different/ not any better. You won't want to quit being a singer to be a staffer if your income is significantly higher. You need not to quit being the front girl to help the behind the scene team. Some AKB's members have done so.

    I think I'd interpret what she said about having had enough as in that she has done all she could to succeed within the group. But yeah, I can see how it could be a hint that the group is stalling. If JKT48 is going somewhere, surely she'd be entertained to stay and give it more of her efforts.

    Regarding the joining behind the scenes, I wouldn't spin it to an assumption from the income perspective really. The translation did not hint anything about money, nor did the actual interview. I would say that she has had enough to be in the spotlight, but if she was given a chance to continue supporting JKT48, she would like to do it from behind the scenes, i.e. joining JOT.

    Angga, the senior writer of jkt48stuff.com has to say about Melo-Nab
    http://www.jkt48stuff.com/2017/11/two-pioneers-graduation-nabilah-melody/

    That first paragraph tho.

    But I wud like to quote leader Melo once tweet to the members: "Be Ikhlas" means "Let it Go" or in Jkt48 context " Just Do it".

    Jkt48 actually always has a slot as alternative entertainer in Indonesia with its J-music among Indopop and dangduts.

    It's been published the trailer for Kimi wa Melody / Dirimu Melody. It's a graceful song for Melody's last single. :blush:

    2017 has been a bad year for Indonesian music:

    1. Melody, Nabilah, & Veranda graduate from JKT48.
    2. Is, vocalist of Payung Teduh, leaves the band.

    @CherryBlossom48 ah I forgot Donni of Ada Band leaves the band too.

    Yeah, it's surprising when Payung Teduh reaching popularity, their hit "Akad" is heard everywhere in Indonesia, the vocalist decided to leave the band.

    I was asking people in JKT48 thread on Kaskus. Which Japan48 members they would like to be transferred to JKT48. What they chose are:

    1. Kawamoto Saya. Someone said that he wants Sayaya to be transferred to JKT48 because she's cute, he becomes interested to JKT48 since 2/20 concert. He's formerly Veranda oshi and doesn't have any oshimen since Veranda graduated and would make Sayaya oshi if she's transferred to JKT48. In my mind, if Sayaya moves to JKT48, she can be a great option to replace Haruka even Sayaya is greater as she ranked undergirls last 2 years. JKT48 needs a transferred member that is pretty popular to replace Haruka. Many JKT48 have known about her. But if Sayaya moves to JKT48, it'd be too easy for her, she can win sousenkyo easily with huge gap to JKT48 native members, not to mention, Sayaya has potential in gravure which would be wasted if she moves to JKT48. So better if she stays in AKB48, getting more popular, reaching senbatsu next sousenkyo.
    2. Nozawa Rena. Someone argues that Rena should return to JKT48. Wise decision I think, Rena isn't popular in AKB48 even she's among members who haven't got any song since 44th single, so she indeed should be in JKT48 instead. But if you want to see her back to JKT48, need to wait until she finished her degree in Waseda, she should finish it in 2021.
    3. Sasuo Yuki. Yeah someone demanded it. Yuki is pretty popular after she starring new Pocari CM with Haruka but it's almost impossible to see her joining JKT48. She's already 20. If only there's special audition...

    Nope, popular in akb doesn't mean she's gonna popular in here too, look at Akicha

    Again, nope. What we need is member that can embrace our culture and mingle easily with local member, look at Harugon

    Lastly, nope. Look at my first quote

    Sayaya might do great in her first year because her Japanese fanbase will still be supporting her, but gradually, she will lose portion of that fanbase and more as time goes. If she doesn't integrate well, the transfer will do her moooore harm than good. I agree with CherryBlossom48. What JKT48 need is not a popular 48G member. What it needs is a member that can integrate well into Indonesia's idea of showbiz, someone who is proactive, someone who can make buzz and continue to do so, so past-popularity is not that great of a factor. That is why Harugon succeed so well. I see Sayaya as more on the... quiet side and not very 'loud', or "seru" if you catch my drift.

    Ever wonder why Tano Yuka was so favored when such talk comes up? While JKT48 has a lot of member who is loud, speak frankly and expressive, but such is the culture in Indonesia.

    She posted "see you in Jakarta" or something like that when Harugon graduated, and she's surprisingly close with Melody (remember the Tano gate when she unfollowed a lot of members? Melody's one of the few she did not unfollow). I also am not against Tano for JKT, since she has a brash and loud personality. I feel like she would blend well with the other girls, and let's be real, gon got a lot of outside job demand in JKT was because she was a variety show material and foreign comedian is one of Indonesian's favourite.

    She still needs to fix her personality tho, if Tano gate 2.0 happens in JKT, she would be the one getting lashed by local members (and fans) :^^;:
