    Don't expect more than two releases per year for sister groups.
    i wanted an album, but the last year they released one so... a single not before august seems "the way to go"

    I know, but HKT released two singles and an album last year, so it's not out of the cards.

    An album seems like a bit of a stretch, seeing how long it took them to release the 2nd one, so that's why I hope for two singles.
    Plus, end of July and October shouldn't clash with any AKB releases.

    A Nagoya Dome concert would also be great, but I have the feeling it all depends on Jurina taking the crown for them to go all out with the celebrations.

    I'm really happy about most of the promotions.
    Rinka is surprising to me, I didn't see her promoted so fast.
    Marin and Izurin in S are perfect, they performed as unders all the time anyway and they fit into the same perfectly. Mipopo tho... I was super surprised by that and honestly I have NO idea why she's in S. She has never performed any stage with S and at least for me she also doesn't fit into the image. The only reasons I can think of are 1) they wanted to have someone older in this pretty young team or 2) they just needed a 3rd member for promotion. Of course I'll give her a chance but honestly she's my least favorite promotion so far.
    Ami in E is great, I was expecting her in S or E but since S is already super young E makes sense to me. Kohaku also fits great into E, even though I was hoping she would be in S. As for Miki, she's fine for E too.

    And Aina... In hour podcast we talked about the KKS recently and what teams the might fit in. And we couldn't find any fitting team for her. I don't know what it is exactly but she just seems totally uninterested and emotionless. (Here's the Episode in case you're interested)

    I'm looking forward to see in which units they will go, especially for S

    Good to know I wasn't the only one surprised with Rinka being promoted. I thought Negai would have been a better choice for promotion, for KII or otherwise. All the other promotions more or less make sense to me though, no offense to Aina.

    Wada Aina still passed over?
    She's gonna end up graduating at this point. Not everyone is Kaotan.
    The fact that Ami, who is TWELVE, was promoted before her...

    Happy with the promotions though.
    Although I don't think KII needed one since they'd still have 19 members when Nacchi leaves.
    Maybe there are more incoming?

    I hate to say it, but I think there's a lot of members who are in danger in graduating soon in KII.
    Kaotan - already 28, so should be graduating soon
    Minarun, Churi, Sally - slightly younger but still 25-26 years old which is the age many idols graduate
    Yumana, Mikotti - have been in the group for years and never reached much popularity, so maybe they'll give up (my guess is Mikotti will wait for SSK, hopefully rank in this year and announce graduation after)

    I'm really hoping I'm wrong, especially for Churi, Sally and Mikotti, but that's the ones I feel are the likely ones to announce graduation. My guess is Kaotan and Mikotti first (Mikotti after SSK).

    I don't know what is your purpose in posting these numbers in every possible sections. You don't even open a debate.

    If you want to prove that Billboard should be taken as the reference then it is not us that you will have to convince but the japanese proffesionals in the music industry.
    Until then Oricon numbers remain the reference.

    Quite confusing, if you compare the amount of HS rounds, promo etc between the 21 st & 22 nd single
    Igai Mango sold more than Muishiki Iro, wow. (I know this considers the Billboard counting system)

    How much do views matter for ske/48groups? There isn't many people who bring views into conversation here but i saw on twitter some fans talking about it so i don't know. Do they matter that much?

    They don't matter?

    Most of what they upload is short versions, which people are not going to bother to watch more than once or twice.

    As for full versions... they don't put much thought into PVs anymore, so I guess they're lucky fans watch the videos even once. :XD:

    Idk, i think they matter to those who want to compare the 48 groups between them? to see who gets more views, it's like a competition or something? It's the only situation i've seen people talking about views tbh

    Ahh yeah, makes me remember the 51st single thread with the B-side view count "race"...:XD:

    I think its a good thing that SKE rarely showcase a boastable result in this aspect. Makes us less obnoxious e-peen fans and better concentrate our energy on the more impartant matter.

    Of course thats just my take on things.:cool:
