You guys know the drill... Hopes 1. Ricchan transfer to Team K. Team K needs an Ace and it can't be Jurina. Ricchan can't get ace exposure with Mayuyu, Takamina and Yui blocking her. 2. One (non-janken) senbatsu without Takamina, Yuko, Kojiharu and Yukirin. It's gonna be risky but I think they'll be able to do something amazing and fresh. From Heart Ereki senbatsu, they can add Renacchi and Mako and either Abemaru and Mariyagi or Miki and Nana. 3. Kato Rena ranking at last. I just don't get what she's doing that's so wrong that she can't even rank. 4. Hirata Rina ranking. She's doing so well in suzukake I hope she gets proper recognition and becomes popular. Fears 1. Takamina and Yuko graduation. IDK man, the both of them are old fogs now but I kinda don't want them to graduate yet? I just wish they'd take a step back from performing and act more as mentors? IDK. First of all they need to move aside from the front line position they have in the formation and let the newer girls shine. 2. Kato Rena concurrency. IDK I feel like management might become desperate to make her happen. She would fit into HKT's image but she wouldn't have anything to gain from going there imho since she would blend in too well. Maybe SKE would push her in her performance skills but she doesn't quite fit their image and I think SKE fans would be really harsh on her. Predictions 1. Jurina solo single. It'll probably be something very EDM inspired. 2. Kojiharu graduation. Actually mass graduation of generations 1 to 6. 3. Mayuyu number 1.
