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?
