    Hopes: At least two singles. An album to go along with those.
    Fears: This isn't my favorite of the Japan based 48 groups so I don't have any particular fears for them outside of the big one (Disbandment).
    Predictions: Sakura and Nako return doesn't benefit the group in the long run. I can easily see a chunk of whatever fans they made through their Korean activities becoming "fans" of the group for as long as Sakura and Nako are still in HKT after their return, but the moment both of those girls are out of the picture those "fans" will be too. AKA Sakura and Nako will be the only ones who actually benefit from their Korean activities in the end. In spite of the above I can see a Sakura and Nako W-Center single happening when they return precisely to capitalize while they can instead of focusing on building newer stars. I couldn't even blame them as it would be a sound business decision to capitalize on their return and any potential new "fans" they might bring with them as well as on the cash people who've been waiting for them to come back will be willing to spend on such a single. Heck I could even forgive that kind of single if they went with someone fresh in the single after it.
