    The competition may be not that tough. They are many hundreds, possibly over a thousand girls saying they have applied to CGM48. I believe such action will disqualify them from the competition. Perhaps, over half of applicants will be eliminated from their social media activities (revealing they have applied, often using cuss words, flaunting their boyfriends etc.).

    Aom, the captain of CGM48, speaks fair English and, albeit not speaking English, Izurina, the general manager (shihainin) of CGM is very kind and will be understanding to the hardship of fellow foreigners.

    Maddie uploaded a dance practice video of Team L (original Team L) practicing 10nen Zakura. It's very dark but it seemed like it was either a Mari center song or a w/ center for Kyla and Thea. Couldn't really tell, when I was about to check it again though, she deleted it already.

    10nen Zakura is a WCenter song but I doubt that Kyla and Thea are the centers but, let's hope for it...

    I just watched the vid though

    Yeah I was wondering about that too but they were most of the time in front.

    Is the tweet back again or did someone reupload it?

    4th Single is Kimi wa Melody. Some people on Twitter are complaining about the album cover, and costumes, personally I think it looks fine. I think that they might have another costume that's just not on the cover, but in the music video like BNK, and AKB.

    Edit: Saw this article on an artist that put Disney Princesses in traditional Filipino clothes, and it got me kind of hyped. I'd love to see MNL in any one of these. https://filipinotimes.net/lifestyle...-princesses-in-traditional-filipino-clothing/

    Edit2: Just remembered that MNL had 2 costumes for 365 as well.

    Well I can't blame those who are complaining about the cover.

    While sure, I'm still hoping the girls are in Filipiniana attire in the music video, even then, to not have them wear such in the cover is already a wasted opportunity.

    I'm one of those that complained, honestly the covers and the costumes are disappointing. I feel like if they removed the purple ruffles on the top and made the skirt a solid color or an ombre it would've looked better. The graphics in the album cover is... questionable.

    And they didn't even bother to respect the election ranking in the layout of the members' position on the poster/cover.

    The single is going to be launched on the 26th. Hopefully that means that the teaser video will come out too, and I'm hoping it'll feature another more traditional(and pretty) costume. If not then it'll be a huge let down, and missed opportunity.

    I noticed that too, and thought I was just being crazy.

    First off, anybody wanna acknowledge teabagger's "rumored prediction" to be right on the money?

    I agree, they could have done a better job imho. I hope the MVs will be better than the last one.

    Is it like a series of promotion and hence only a select member perform each time or...? Members' blocking looked really odd at times.

    Ahh I wish they perform Gingham as well but since it was an undergirls song it wouldnt be fair for them to perform that too. Hhhhhhh why
