    FINALLY SOME GOOD NEWS!

    Edit: I'm not worried at all abt this fukyouwaon perf this time. More than anyone else the members must feel they need to redeem themselves after 2017 kohaku (and that garasu of last year). This will be explosive, I trust the girls

    My theory is that AkiP's "character arc" for Techi ended with Kuroi Hitsuji, and so neither he nor management knows where to take the group from there.

    Writing "dark" or edgy/rebellious songs isn't really what AkiP normally does so he needs to feel inspired in order to do so and make it good, he can't just force one out. And Keyaki has tied themselves so closely to the Techi story and their "mainstream alt-idol" concept for so long that it's hard to change gears and make it work.

    AkiP may run out of ideas but it goes deeper than that. Seed&Flower has shown before they can't take care of two groups, they have to choose in the end where their resources should go. 2018 is a perfect example of that when Kanji and Gana were splitted up and Kanji had injury problems at the beginning of the year so they pushed Gana and let Kanji take a break from Budokan performance and then pushed them for a 1st album and still being half-time in singles.

    It worked perfectly fine if one of the groups is half-time, but two full-time idol groups is a lot to chew for a agency. Not even AKS let their sister groups being under same roof as AKB48 when they are spread out in own agencies. Sony Music thought it would work but it didn't. Way too many mistakes one mngmt does and is very unfocused when they don't get enough resources.

    Miwa has brought this up before and I have to agree with her.

    Edit: Initially Seed&Flower was never planned to have two groups.

    I am speculating Techi really was going through something none of us are aware of except those who are around her. I am deducting this because of what Takahiro-San said that he is glad she has passed spring, summer & autumn and now winter is ahead.
    Well, any way we will never know but Aki-P is sure is not ending that arc. He has tried that 'arc' in almost all the group except in keyaki it is sorta their focus. Even Last idol has an almost 'arc' like Keyaki. So what I think is, he is rather preparing to create the kind of music which will have both in it, judging from what he told Yuuka, and that definitely won't be easy.
    Moreover keyaki is more or less now known as the 'group that speak the ppl' so changing it, just to suit what they have in mind will be an issue too.

    Keyaki's demand for the end of year is so high & it breaks my heart that captain Yuuka got so insecure that she asked us to love them a longer not knowing they are popular! :cry:

    Can somebody explain if the uniform they wear now is their "big break uniform" until spring for 9th single where it's back to normal with Keyaki's 46 logo on the arm sleeve for the new uniform?

    First of all, happy holydays everyone.
    Second.... WHOA!!!!
    That had been the perfect Kuroi performance EVER!
    I love how much thinking they put behind this and how well they worked behind the scenes. Camera work, choreo, scenography... everything is quite impressive.
    And the girls delivered!
    Touching and powerful performance.
    Good job Keyaki :1st:

    Kado wo magaru performance was heart-wrenching =/

    It started as a continuation from the Kuroi Hitsuji performance, Hirate was really on top of her game today with both performances. And she literally cried at the end of the performance before saying thank you and bowing. I watched it live so I don't have a video of the performance, but I'm sure someone will post it soon.

    Was she? She didn't even sing live, so... :rolleyes:

    Ohwell, her solo performance was nice, but I don't know why the whole thing screamed GRADUATION IMMINENT.

    Thank you for the video @valerien I managed to miss both performances today, so I'm really really grateful.

    Twitter is cheering for our girls, for the way they manage to own the stage and give incredible and heartbreaking and powerful performances, Takahiro himself said they keep changing the choreo so to give their best.
    Techi performed a really difficult song alone and yet managed to deliver its message, to make people feel.

    I'm so proud of the girls and I'm so proud of Techi. Especially in a moment like this and especially because of people who are there waiting for them to fall.
    They are truly another level.

    Totally agree. BTW, what do we say to those people waiting for them to fall? "Not today" (repeat every day).
