    Hahaha sorry I passed out half way through, too tired XD Gunna scan through the matome now to grab the rest of the day's report.

    It makes sense, profit always come first. And life is unfair as usual. Nothing you can do about it other than keep supporting your oshi and try your best to help your oshi by putting her out there on SNS in any way possible.

    I think fan community is a big factor to the success of a member. To my experience, spreading the love to people on how awesome and fun your oshi are is more useful than complaining why they deserve a push or whatever such and such. And some fans don't even go the extra mile to help promote their oshi and just be content with just their own entertainment. It's justified but it ain't helping your oshi is what I'm saying.

    SR is not useless at all which in fact, is the only way to get themselves out there like you and others have said.

    This HS event is one of the activities that they promote the girls right? Also not to mention radio shows, tv segments, PR events etc etc. And everything just started like 3 months only, someone is gunna get left out for sure due to the nature of the fast pace development of the group, not everyone is gunna get promoted equally. Management don't have the time to wait for development process instead they look at immediate results. Which is reasonable since they have big ambition of making a quick splash in the 48G.

    Everyone started as nobody first tbh. The center could've been anyone, it was up for grabs. So yeah.

    5 min for me. If she doesn't have anything interesting then I'm moving on but I'll make another visit some other time when I'm farming stars. Also I go to matome and twitter to see if others users share interesting topics and clips from the showrooms. So it saves my time too.

    ================================

    48th Handshake event round 2 starting soon.

    Forgive me if it's been talked about and I just missed it but are there any prominent friendships between the members of stu48 (I know it's still early days, just curious)?

    Kahotaru: Outplayed son!!

    HinaAyu (Iwata Hina + Ichioka Ayumi) *BFF since HKT 4th gen

    Fukuchan - Kahotaru (Fukuda Akari + Mori Kaho) *Kagawa combo

    Kanon - Fuu (Isogai Kanon + Yabushita Fuu) *Did Kareoke stream together

    Nonchan - Arisa (Shintani Nonoka + Mineyoshi Arisa) *Loli combo

    Yumirin - Fuu (Takino Yumiko + Yabushita Fuu) *STU reps

    There are many others but these are just top of my head. Basically I think the whole group bonds very well with one another.

    If I were to say it, Kaho and Kouko are the closest pair, Kaho calls Kouko whenever she feels unwell so that she can take care of her at night (gotta love English and its grammar). Kaho and Harurun are friends too since they shared the same agency before joining STU48, enough to visit each other without problem, but there's also tension since they are both high profile showroomers and in that environment fans usually push for one or the other.

    So has it been confirmed whether the theater will be a ship under it's own power or a barge?

    Yesterday at 3AM I finished writing my letter to Kahotaru. Being the very first time I'm sending one in Japanese to an idol (I'm old enough to have sent mails before email arrived :awesome:) I asked Momomanju (an amateur showroomer whom I've been supporting for quite a long time) to correct it. Surprisingly it was pretty clear (I was worried some parts could be misunderstood and edited out) and needed only some rewording here and there. Now to make it handwritten and send it.

    Which brings my question, has anyone ever written a letter to an idol before? To a STU48 member? I was thinking on making some colourful envelope addressed to her with my name and put it inside a brown envelope with the addresses so that they can discard it (and so that I don't need to take a silly envelope to the post office), but then thought, maybe it's just a bit too much for just a letter :awesome: Did anyone send anything before? If so, did you decorate the envelope?

    Technically, I already sent her two letters, one as a screenshot of a Google Keep note congratulating her for reaching 100 recommendations with her old account, and the other a pretty long, handwritten one which I took pictures of just a day before she shut down her account to begin broadcasting with the STU48 one (both via Twitter).

    I don't know how your country works but for me, we have little boxes on every few streets where we can drop off mails and small packages. That way, you don't have to make a trip to the post office.

    Decorating would be nice but any 3D(??) decorations you put on it will probably get lost in the transportation process. I'm sure an envelope with hand drawn pictures would be simply yet eye catching :)

    We have very few of the mail boxes left down here, but there are some still. No idea if they still collect stuff from there, though, lol. I guess I'll just draw or find an envelope with a sea theme and use it.
