    The program channel.

    As you can guess, that's also the program name. Meaning "Sugoku Atsui(Very hot)" in Nagoya dialect with purpose to transmit the heat of Nagoya to audience.

    (I assume heat as their passion, what else?:awesome:)

    And google translate of an Enteme article agrees with you in its own way. :)

    A new program "Chinchikochin [栄ちんちこちん] of SKE48" starts at SHOWROOM What is the meaning of the strange program title?

    "Emergency of SKE 48" ...... Program title with impact. The origin of "Chin Chi Kochin" means "very hot" in the dialect of Nagoya. With the title that Akari Suda of the members decided with the viewer on "SHOWROOM NAGOYA STUDIO special delivery" on Thursday 25th (Thursday), the enthusiasm to transmit the heat of Nagoya is put.

    These have to be the best profile photos SKE have ever done. They look classy and professional.
    Very eager to see what the other groups do now; STU and NGT are out too, but SKE are the current leaders :p

    Edit: Ok, so AKB and NMB's new profile shots are also out, and I think SKE still have the edge here.

    I like the fact that the photos aren't limited to head shots. I feel that gives SKE the edge over the other groups when it comes to their profile photos.

    Hurry, hurry, hurry. Churi and Honono are on J-Melo this week. The whole second half of the show is about ramen in Yamagata. They take a tour and do lots of eating. Of course SKE48 songs get some airplay as well.

    Screen Shot 2019-05-05 at 10.35.41 AM.png

    The next showing will be in about 3 1/2 hours.

    Check the schedule for times in your area.

    The endurance to perform multiple songs without break = stamina, not skill.

    An individual SKE girl doesn't perform 12 songs non-stop but they take turns performing by dividing girls into several units. They also actually take breaks with all long talk parts.

    Yes, she wants. She said she joined Produce48 for the training. Why did she want to take dance and singing training if she didn't want to pursue music career? When she performs, you can see she's full of the passion. Her love for the stage is so strong. Can a successful business quench her thirst to stand under the limelight?

    But, without slightiest skill, how long will the general public want to see her?

    If I work for a small company for 5 years, I may feel stuck and want to move to a bigger company. But, if before I quit, the small company is acquired by a big company thus, the small company becomes an arm of the big company and, employees of the small company with impressive performances may be transferred to the big company, I will surely delay my leave.

    It's the same. The graduation train might be common, but if the new board gave the members convincing promise that they would be given better opportunities in ent industry, members must revise their grad plan and some must have postponed. Most idols become idols as they have always wanted to be celebs.

    The price of SKE was 3,000 millions and it generated 360 millions profit yearly? So, the group will break even for its price after 8 years? Can SKE keep its level of profitability for next 8 years and, no hate but can SKE even last for 8 more years (makes it a 18 years-old girl group)? 8 years is a very very long period for a girl group and much longer than entire lives of many girl groups. 360 millions even is operating profit, not net profit (not subtract the tax and debt interest yet). SKE may transition into a talent agency so it can last longer than the group but, in that case, won't it be cheaper to found a brand new talent agency and recruit SKE girls (as double contract) than to buy out SKE?

    But, who knows if Keyholder really paid 3 billion yen and who knows if Keyholder cares the profit from this deal at all.

    Read again:

    The SKE48 business disclosed at the same time is the result of the fiscal year ending November 2017, with sales of 2.15 billion yen, operating income of 360 million yen, and released publicly. Among the parties in the industry, it is regarded as "high value asset".

    For the note, both 2.15 billion and 3 billion is in the article.

    The former is "asset value" of SKE as written in the transfer clause, while the latter is the estimated number media guessed of what Keyholder spend to acquisition SKE. Only God, AKS and Keyholder who know how many actual money spent here.

    Are you saying that company that manage SKE48 before this (which is AKS) is a small company???

    The main issues are not my previous company is suck, my new company is better, so it is better that I stay. Some might think like that but some might not especially if you stay for 9-10 years, not 5 years. Some might have thinking 9-10 years is long enough. It is time to move on to other things especially if they have some planning in mind after graduation.

    Why the new company want to convince the girls that stay for around 9-10 years which had decided that she want to move on to stay even longer. They are not Kami-7 level. The company are in the line of business that it is expected that the girl will graduate sooner or later and 9-10 years is long enough. AFAIK, majority of the girls graduated around 7-8 year after being part of the member. Hence it is expected that they will announce graduation. Why the company should prevent something that had been expected?

    Is it possible for once to not answer 10~20 days later ?
    So you take 1 thing in Jurina's long idol career and generalise. (Don't forget none of the Produce 48 contestant clearly knew what to expect in the 1st place)
    Can one say for sure Jurina wants to be an actress because of the acting jobs she had until now ?
    Or a choregrapher because of her dance ?
    If only it was that simple.

    Ask Acchan's fans. (she graduated nearly 7 years ago).

    Only the girls know.
    Still, a good dozen of girls will leave the groups next year at the same period (and the same scenario every years), especially among members who are facing the choice of continuing being idol or studies, and among veteran members.
    17 girls had their last handshake event the last weekend.
    Is it a lot ? yes
    Is it abnormal ? not really
    Are 48 groups going to collapse because of this ? certainly not
    Are 48 groups in danger: NGT48 are, others no.
    I wonder what narrative you are trying to push ?

    Also for a group who's one of the gimmick is to constantly bring new faces in it's roster and groom them, it's not in it's interest to keep a girl who wishes to go on her own, neither in the girl's.
