High chance it's not snowy. And they really riding the SSK wave.
Really happy to see Ayanyan and Kado-chan being selected for this single (especially Ayanyan), although it's clear that Sousenkyo results had an impact on this decision more than anything else. Add to it the fact that Etsuro's mentality is still that Sousenkyo results are all that it matters, and this could very well signal the end of NGT's egalitarian spirit, which made it unique. While so far everyone identified themselves as 1-ki, we are probably going to see the management starting to draw lines between Senbatsu and non-Senbatsu when it comes to promotions and job assignments. Meh...
Would love if they at least took it as an opportunity to create a Kenkyuusei slot inside the Senbatsu lineup, in the same fashion as the theater shows, where various Kenkyuusei members could rotate with each release. A man can dream, right?
So 16regular + 2KKS that ranked in SSK.
Surprised Ogiyuka is center as she will probably be a front liner for the upcoming AKB releases till next SSK + all the senbatsu work that comes with it.
Hinata/Rika/Okappa/Maho would be smarter imo. Even trying to revive Katomina would have been better.

Team NIII will nearly always be in the Senbatsu. The 2 KKS included in the Senbatsu is kinda expected since they worked hard to get ranked top 80. If the two KKS didn't get included in the Senbatsu lineup, I think there would be more questions to management about their decision making.
I doubt Ogiyuka will be front-liner for any upcoming AKB releases. Senbatsu, sure. But front liner, I don't think so. Not unless AKB mgmt had a change of heart and change its way of doing things, which would be nice if that does happen.
A bit later than I expected though.
AKB is probably going to release end of October/November and it's going to cannibalise the HS sales, so don't expect a rise in sales for this.
Not a fan of putting all the eggs in one basket with this Ogiyuka craze, but I guess they're trying to create some drama next election.
Imagine if she ranks over Sakura? The hilarity.
But yeah, poor Katomina.
Now... 2nd gen announced during Kitarie's grad?
What a great news to start my morning

Awe yeah! Super cool for a second Single! And, yeah: they are really riding that Senbatsu wave for OgiYuka. Hopefully, she won't be worn out by the end of it. ^^;
I haven't seen an 18-member Senbatsu in a long time. Anyone want to educate me when was the last time?
i was hoping for a Hinnatan center but Ogiyuka is fine too
AKB48 - Give Me Five! (2012), but SKE48 had Kin no Ai, Gin no Ai recently.
I was hoping it would be a good looking centre...but we got OgiYuka instead.
Thank you! Wow. Really scarce!

Welp. Seems like many J-fans are pissed at Imamura for trying to make NGT48 like SKE48. People aren't happy with Imamura increasing the gap in the group by giving one girl everything (an agency, AKB push, NGT center, news coverage, Tv shows, etc).
They're also upset that the senbatsu is 18n, as it should have been 24. There are some KKS who are more worthy than some NIII members, either by SSK rank and by HS sale.
Anyways, I don't agree with people saying that Ogiyuka shouldn't be center because she's ugly/emotionally unstable/annoying, but I agree that management should be creating a rivalry instead of making NGT48 into a one woman show. We don't want NGT48 to be another sister group with only 1-2 extremely popular members. We want to keep it as a group where if a popular member graduates, the group can still keep on going (i.e. more Nogizaka, less NMB/SKE).

Poor Renapon. She has to do that pose for eternity. lol
And 2 years ago!
Also, currently there're as many KKS performing in NIII stages as NIII members in KKS stages. Clearly new members are needed to improve their rotation and to increase the number of performances.
Am I the only one who didn't know?
