    One of the times where I wish Aly had something in her seifuku or even an accessory to show that she's the center.

    Their English is so good! MNL48 is one of the few idol groups where I don't skip the MC segments. :lol:
    I do think they could have had Kay translate more for the audience since they didn't seem to understand everything the girls were saying, like the announcement for the mobile app.

    Wow, Kouzu-san really likes Abby and Colleen from above video. He said the interaction was enjoyable and long, only around 30 fans at the event.

    Kudos to Yachang in the background doing work, and to Kaede for most valuable translator.

    What the heck is happening? Is this transition planned all along? Or just a sudden decision? HHE is doing a lot of questionable things these days

    MNL48 to be reformed after the new partnership with ABS-CBN
    After their partnership contract expired, ABS-CBM and HHE decided to sign a different new contract. From now onward, the involvement of ABS-CBN will be deeper as ABS-CBN will jointly directly operate MNL48 with HHE. ABS-CBN promised more contents and better video productions for MNL48. Also, it announced MNL48 management would better in tune with AKS' standard and a big project was awaiting.

    Also today, ABS-CBN signed a contract with Momoland, a Korean girl group whose song "Bboom Bboom" went viral in Philippines.

    This definitely is a least questionable move.
    - HHE clearly was running out of budget and a giant media corporate promised to invest generously on MNL48. Why on earth HHE might reject this offer?
    - The much criticized yearly elimination likely will be canceled.

    People are celebrating on twitter and facebook. But I think this is a sign that kuro p finally opted, after almost 2 years and still not getting enough relevance in the opm industry to concede and ask for abs's full support and whatever contract their willing to offer in exchange. On the bright side I think this is good for the girls to get abs involved since hhe clearly doesnt get how our music industry works. Bad for kuro p since I think he had to sacrifice some of his financial monopoly over the girls for this new contract to push through. So this is probably the best thing that happened to the group but also the most crucial because I think this is their last move(kuro p's last move) to save the girls. I knew this melody era is kind of fishy. HHE is like trying to bankrupt the fans by milking them big time. You have the HSE, that janken thing, the 3 days coslandia and three separate concerts? I mean is the fandom that big? Yeah ofcourse it got bigger but substantially big? I dont think so. Seriously I can hear a lot of mnloves complaining how theyre running out of money. Even those affluent fans. But they kept spending nonetheless. They had no idea that its because hhe is running out of money. By golly I just hope this new contract will serve as a ray of hope for the group

    Hope this new contract opens more doors for the girls. The fifth single really is the make it or break it point for them especially if ABS-CBN promotes the hell out of it and we still don't get substantial growth.

    Promoting talents honestly is a no brainer for ABSCBN. This network knows how to do it.

    Just In: One of the SB19 member lewd pickup line towards MNL48 Coleen, 16 yrs old aka a minor in a TV interview debacle in case you missed this yesterday or few days ago. Company CEO also made a public or online apology letter to end the issue.
