    Well, within the group, only she and Kobayashi have the will to say out loud that they want to become a center. However, after the 7th single senbatsu announcement, you can say that her dream won’t become true for a very very long time.

    Some said that it was her ears, but if she goes for a solo career after graduating from K46, you can at least understand that it is not b/c of her health problem.

    Not really. It depends on what exactly her issue is, but if it's an ear issue like it's been sounding like the main thing that would effect is her dancing since the ears have such an effect on our balance and feeling of motion sickness. If she just sings the problem may never get bad enough to prevent her from performing. But it's really all speculation so who knows. Maybe she'll come out with a juicy tell-all interview 6 months from now and enlighten us.

    Big loss for Keyakizaka.. Imaizumi had everything.. she could sing, dance, act, amazing performer almost never seen her give less than 100%, and she had the personality and appeal that pulled in a legion of fans.
    ..such a shame..
    Judging by how Kagechan and Hiyori looks up to Imaizumi, She would've also been a good senpai to the incoming keyaki juniors..
    Hiyori's latest blog is just :cold: :cry:

    Sad to see Imaizumi go, but if that's what it takes for her to care more for her health then of course I'm happy about it. Even if she works as a soloist she'll likely have more of a chance to arrange her work around what she can handle. My only hope for her is that she'll be successful on her own and become a household name.

    i get it. i think the same too. i think health issues is not the main factor. i bet she also feel so depressed/dissapointed bc cannot reach center position? she really wants that. maybe if management gave 0 position to her for this 7th single, she would stay a little bit longer.

    but well who am i? who knows what happened in behind the scene. i hope her solo career succeed.

    I think the worst part about Imaizumi's departure is that we still don't have a live DVD/Bluray with all 21 original members in it...
    I am sad to see her go, but i have no doubt that she will have a bright future, because there is no way sony will let her go/disappear.

    I thought everyone know that Zumiko always want to be solo artist, not idol. She is #1 in my raiting "who will sotsugyo first?"
    Keyakizaka is just her 1st (or 2nd) step to her dream! Good luck for her. Otsukare sama~

    ugh, dont remind me.

    I still dont get why she's in there when she never really participated in any part of the keyakizaka career. All she did was give keya a bad rep but sony dropped her ass in a flash so i never considered her a member :awesome:

    Harada Mayu appeared on at least two KeyaKake shows. And she was good on them. What I don't like being reminded of is how the group lost a potentially important member. Not that there was any way they could keep her, after what happened. So I have a different attitude toward her than most people. But it will still look weird to see her name next to Zumiko's. Not equivalent.

    EDIT: I just came across a Japanese thread talking about nicknames, and how hard it is for new fans to know who's being talked about. It reminded me to default to more recognizable names, at least for a while. And the more recent Japanese nicknames are really telegraphic. Here's a list someone provided:

    Zu → Imaizumi
    Mu → Uemura
    Da → Oda
    Mii → Mii-chan, from (Koike) Minami
    Pon → Yuipon, from (Kobayashi) Yui
    Fu → Saitou Fuyuka
    Shii → Satou Shiori
    Mon → Suzumoto
    Techi → Hirate-chan (written in Japanese Hirate-chiyan)
    Nen → Moriya Akane
    Pe → the name of Watanabe Rika's cat

    Mah.. I still think Mods jinxed it [hehe] (kidding... sort of)

    But yeah, it will be sad see Zuumin down there. Hopefully her outside career will break soon enough and we'll be just talking about her the same amount, just in the graduated subforum.

    Nicknames are a weird thing, I often see fans discussing about whom is using the right name and how it should be translated and since when it was used.. and so on lol I find it quite funny
    at the same time I see other fans developing their own nicknames and that is that.
    For some reason I never call Shida "Mona" nor I had ever called her "Manaka" those nick never stuck on me, but I see many fans calling Techi in other ways too, though I remember just Teko, right now.

    Calling the girls with just a syllable felt a bit... weird thoguh

    I didn't realize this was still online: the original Keyakizaka46 Debut Countdown Live from March 2016. If you haven't seen it -- or even if you have -- do yourself a favour and watch. It's the group's first real big live, from just before Silent Majority was actually released. This and the SaiMajo MV are probably the things that made me a fan (along with the Keyakitte, Kakenai? episodes I watched after seeing them). The first part, showing them backstage is not to be missed: so nervous but so prepared; Techi/Neru, Zuumin attempting to kiss Techi's cheek and getting pushed away with a smile; Habu pounding Ozeki's back to get her to settle down; Nijika's wail that she should have called her mother. And that's before they go on stage....

    I hoped against hope that no one would bring up that here, at least.
    No such luck.

    Anyway, does someone knows something about the new kids coming? I saw some tweets around. Is there some development from auditions?
