    Judging from the bits and pieces we know, it appears that the final line up of 39? people had practices and are then "selected" again. Those who are selected becomes Nogi 4th, Keya 2nd, and Hinata 3rd.

    As for group assignment, Konno in his interview with Nikkei said that at first they plan to assign them based on which group suit them the most, but there is a lot of participant who show strong feeling on wanting to enter a certain group. So he discussed it with AkiP, and they decided to consider their group of choice.

    The news article mentioned that in the past 1 year, these 15 continue their training to be assigned to one of the groups. Now that their "full acitivity" will begin, i assume they will be getting a TV show as a start

    While I agree with you, think it makes a lot of sense. It'd be kind of strange to see like 5 members joining a group as a new gen (I know there's Hinano but I still think she's an exception), I guess there will be more girls joining KSS before any of these join a group.

    PD: It's good to see you here. :D

    I wouldn't mind if Hikari Endo (the girl that has an air of Cherprang) joins Keya. That gaze...! [Unfortunately it seems she wants/likes Nogi, so, we'll see]

    Wow, Sakamichi is getting more and more complicated, huh? Too many gimmicks, they almost look like 48 group.:p I won't try to dive deeper into this new system. I just wait and see which group these girls will enter. If they go to Nogi or Hinata, I'll try to find more about them. Until then, I'll stay on the side.:)

    Ozono Rei wants to join Hinata, so there's one for sure.

    4 of them that might join Keya:
    Kuromi, Sato, Masumoto and Moriya.

    Endo's choice is Nogi. Matsuoka withdrew 4th gen Nogi due to school.

    That leaves us to remaining 8 members. I hope most of them join Hinata due to the group's small size now.

    Nogizaka - Capitalist with meritocracy
    - Senbatsu isn't given like charity ; you're either in it through merit ; reputation or potential (hori 7th single ;Yodamomo 18th ; EnSaku 24th)

    Keyakizaka - Authoritarian with Communist/Socialist Rotation
    - everyone gets rotated in 1st to 3rd row except for you know who
    - moneymakers aren't given privilege here except for the center in music terms
    - both A side and Bside is centred by the same person
    - elite members apart from the center only gets spotlight in extraactivities (TGC ; quiz show ; modelling )
    - if you're an Alpha like Imaizumi ; this group won't fulfill your needs

    Hinatazaka
    - new group recently gained independence

    Keyaki hasn’t made a comeback with 2nd gen yet so I would hold back from making any assumptions about their positions. Who knows if management will stun us with an airdrop.

    Also when did Techi become the second Voldemort? Just say her name, peeps.


    I actually really like Hinata the way they are right now, the girls’ bonds give me such warm fuzzies, and I don’t think any of the girls so far except maybe Nao have been given a chance to fully show their potential within the group. I don’t want to see any of the current girls being delegated to Unders either (same goes for Keyaki). But I guess we’ll just have to wait to see.. Have to say, Hinata’s most recent single is giving me strong Nogi vibes, and there’s a lot of overlap between the two fandom so I wouldn’t be surprised if Hinata begins to follow Nogi’s formation system.

    These girls are lovely. But, Nogi have too many activities already, even non senbatsu member are busy. Then, Hinata have their 3rd single. I'm not sure whether I can catch up to these girls or not.

    I think I'm gonna dig about them by the time they enter group.

    as long the gimmick didnt contribute in hs just to increase the sales, im fine with that. selling cd and then throw back into the dumpster are not good example. people should treasure money.
    anyway, there is two side of the coin, yinyang, day night. so when hinata latest concept is like upgrade version of synchro and sing out, i knew it. there are no 'happy vibe' or wutsoever happy concept because happy is like idol mainstream concept. the other side will be keyazaka dark emo and sad kind of concept.

    Making Nao perma-center is the only mistake they can do right now. Other than that, they are doing really great. The fact that Hinano is getting a solo is a sign they'll be given the chance to showcase their true potential. And they've already produced quality unit songs so that's another thing. We'll just have to wait for their next move on future single.

    As far as Unders are concerned, I doubt it happening with Keyaki. With Hinata I don't know what other approach you can do. I think them becoming a new separate group is one of the reason they only took one new member in Hinano. So it will be interesting if they add more members. Who knows maybe just one more to make it 21 again.
    Because in mentioning her name, you better make sure to say something nice. Or the 'hardcore royal followers' will crucify you.

    I honestly hope Keyaki get a bunch, because they're a really awkward size now. 26-member senbatsu is not going to work. I guess they can make a 16-member senbatsu with a 10-member under, but I think it's better for them to get enough members to start the senbatsu/under system properly.

    Based on the Nikkei interview they have the freedom to choose group. At first Konno was thinking to move them to certain group that fits them the best, but since members have a desire to join a certain group he has talked with Aki-P.

    I think it wasn't necessary to move them to certain group because most of the members fits the bill of what they planned. The balance is good enough without forcing them to a certain group.

    They will probably get 5 members. I think all groups will get 5 each.

    I'm hoping for them to do some lives, because I think they would do mixture of Nogi, Kenya, and Hinata songs -- a true joint sakamichi event.
