    There’s been a lot of good things happening lately ever since management had restructured and that person is gone. Hoping it continues...

    well good to see some big strides from the mgmt for a change..

    imo better to ditch that kumu partnership or whatever and just have their own similar or showroom type setup through their app.

    Congrats and happy for the girls with these new sub unit, the song and recording is top quality as expected from the members.

    I'm super excited for Baby Blue! I do feel like MNL has been doing a bit better recently, but what about the Election?

    Whose "that person"?

    I think the election still has elimination. There’s word that the cutoff rank for next election is 36. Which for me I think is necessary if the group wants to survive. It stinks but they have to do something about their finances.

    In terms of “That person” I guess there’s no point in hiding it now bc it seems many fans on twitter and reddit know about but its Nay Gio the group’s manager. Apperantely he is now gone ( dont know if he resigned or was fired). Fans with high end sources say that he was apperantly running the group to the ground on purpose, giving high spending fans perks, manipulating KuroP(which I feel bad for the guy since he thought that the person who has connections to Philippine entertainment industry would actually help him) and high favoritism when choosing members for promotion and senbatsu.

    good riddance I guess if that's the case..

    On the contrary, since they are starting to come along with these new stuff for fans to get excited over, I think the mindset is to scale up and not in survival mode.

    I agree with this, that person's really the thorn of the group

    IDK Nay Gio left them in a bad spot financially and last time I checked management is still behind in paying the members and staff. They would still need to downscale to stop them from financially bleeding out and to get the money back that they lost due to that manager

    Dunno who this guy is on Twitter, but I am pretty sure he is an insider since Jan confirmed via on Twitter that she's surprised on where this guy got the photos. That said, if this guy is to believe, they already shot the MV.

    Well, I think that's what the president want to happen, for the network to sell there facilities to one of the presiden't cronies.

    Maybe not that much but its still a blow against more media exposure for MNL.

    It seems though that MNL is chanelling some effort on other things, so I guess its ok.

    And nice to hear that Gio is out.

    Damage has been done since his influence that made some popuar members being shafted resulted to the graduation of such members, oh well.

    Just hear about Baby blue and listen to their snippet, have to admit that it's sounds really good. And working with a japanese record??? That's just an amazing opportunity. Any info about when it will be available on spotify etc?

    As far as I know tower records is more of a music distribution company than a record company but they do own a label handling idols under a different name. No word yet if it will be available on spotify but you can listin to the full track on eggs (similar to spotify). Here is the link to listen to the song

    https://eggs.mu/artist/babyblue

    edit: it just became available on spotify now

    So, my take:

    1) HalloHalloween. Name checks out :approve: lol

    2) 16 members huh? Is this lowkey a Halloween Night Senbatsu? Or nah? :confused:

    look closely, they're 17 but 2 of them are considered as 1 and also it's not for HN Senbatsu...it's just a normal event

    I mean, I know, but the twins are typically counted as one anyway. Besides, AKB's had weird numbered Senbatsu before. Just wondering.

    And yes. I know Halloween Night was a stretch. Just an odd number for them to pick was all :awesome:
