JKT48 also have too many academy member.
whoa. So this year already felt like a purge and a decimating of the old foundation. I hope whatever needs to be torn down, will disappear within this year so all of them can start fresh again the next year, with new single, new image, new directions, and hopefully a new mindset for the fans
Vanka literally said bullshit on her speech lmao
The graduated members must be given their grad song as same as SKE48 had done... Too much members who announced their grad in this month... Insya Allah, I will meet JKT48 on Circus 4 if at all possible.
The heck happened with this group? 6 members announce graduation at once?
Spill the tea please. I want to know what did she said (and probably other members too)
What I remember is... (Sorry if I'm using Bahasa Indonesia and sorry if I'm false)
She talked about having a family problem and it was the reason why she often came late or absent from theater. She later talked about having dificult time juggling between her study at the university and her time with JKT48.
Mod Note: You should be able to edit your first post without double posting.
Sorry for the double post, but I just watched the video and here is my tl;dr about their reasons to graduate.
1. Kyla: she said that she had identity crisis at JKT because she is unsure about what being an idol means and thought that being an idol is not for her.
2. Rachel: She is looking for something bigger in life. There were some hints of disappointment about her presence at JKT (not ranking at ssk, not being in single, etc)
3. Michelle: said that she wants to be an enterpreneur and decided to focus on that dream.
4. Stefi: said she is going to continue her study in Japan.
5. Angel: said she wants to try something else out of JKT.
6. Vanka: talked about family problem and how it affected her schedule at JKT. She also talked about her dificulty balancing her study and idol life. Apparently she already considering about graduation since 2016.
@Nighthawk141 at least they graduated rather than fired at the same time
Also can someone made a thread for ssk? I can't handle ssk thread anymore

Of all the reason only Stefi having a good news behind it
Actually from fans' tweet I read that Team T is in a bad state now (aside from the mass graduation) even Ayana as Captain can't handle it?
am i the only one feels so awkward looking at melody standing there while the members announce their reasons of graduating. lol.
but i guess this is inevitable. they dont even have as much as singles anymore. as for Kyla, i feel bad for the girl, her lil sis Zara got all of this exposures and amazing movie gigs, and shes just ... there, in the least established team. hope she will do good outside of JKT48.
i feel like this mass graduation is a good thing so they can actually start fresh. get rid of the girls who dont wanna be there anymore so they can start the new jkt48 totally.
I've always felt sisters/brothers in the same entertainment sphere, same genre, similar style, and even in same group is a risky thing, because it will be subject to comparison. Especially in an idol group with hirearchy system like jkt. And being idols and artiste in jakarta is different, so with her coming from a jkt entertainment industry family, idols maybe too much of a culture shock for her.
Anyway, I hope whatever budget JOT is saving will be enough for making more than 3 mvs for next year.
Does anyone know how many lineups JoT will announce in the next ssk?? I wish there will be at least senbatsu, undergirls, and future girls, so it will be 48 girls in total and 3 mvs. It will be good for the morale of the girls (and us fans)
Welp that's true. But I hope frieska doesn't announce anything soon
so if I understand the 6 girls can't participate in the ssk but sinka yona ayana Zara can participate...
ok JOT I think this mass graduation is good way to dissmiss some members.... we see you
what about viny? what makes them can and the rest can't?
and anyway, that's too many already leaving members in a ssk single (provided they won the spot). I would like to see members who would actually make it at least until the next ssk period.
In my opinion, there is some good in this mass graduation. It can be said that next year is a year of reformation for JKT48. Now with Mr Hiroshi Yuasa as a special advisor, he can help JKT48 climb even higher. Over the last few years we've been saying JKT needs a revival in the eyes of the public. This is their chance. The new members are not burdened by the older members who have a legacy. Some new members may have felt that no matter what they do, they can't shine because the older members have too much power. But we're seeing that change with the likes of Eli and Zee who have immensely strong fanbases. Now is their chance (gen 6 and above) to prove they can step up. For the older members that choose to stay, many have not yet hit the heights their peers have (SSK, single appearances, etc). Now they can be a role model and find their own success that they couldn't find in the past. We as fans must always support JKT48. We know that the group must change in order to evolve. Next year we have to work hard as fans. For now, we should treasure every moment we have with our oshis who are graduating soon.
One of the old member had just declare her determination.
No, I think all the member who have announced their graduation won't be participating in ssk this year. Although I don't think they'll have the same graduation date. Stefi definitely will be graduated by September, Kyla won't be in the group till the end of the year, Michelle will still be in the group until next year (her last show will probably in the first quarter of 2020). For Vienny, Ayana, Sinka, Yona, Tacil, Rachel, and Angel I guess they'll hold on until the end of the year or at least Circus part 4 I think and have their graduation concert in November.
Tbh I don't think JOT did this as a way to dismiss some member, if anything they try to hold the members a little bit longer to stay in the group. Beside, other than Zara I think all of them has reasonable reasons to graduate from the group. Majority of gen 1 and 2 are already on their 20s and finished college, considering the mild pressure for women in mid 20s to pursue relationship in Indonesia it's understandable for them to graduate right now while gen 3 are combination of starting to hit 20s and considering their higher education. Tacil with her family and time management problem, Rachel literally being in the back row since 2012. Kyla decided to graduate because JKT isn't really for her especially with many anti considering her attitude as bad for an idol (IMO the bullying that she receives after uploading Lala's old facebook post and some fans called her parents with inappropriate names is the thing that push her)
Any live streaming available?
