    Hopes:
    1. Rena's kennin ends after the next single
    2. Center rotation continues with someone like Nanamin, Fukugawa, or Manatsu (the original center candidate) stepping up to the plate or even a return from Maiyan or Ikoma.
    3. Misamisa enters Hachifukujin and finally gets acknowledged as one of Nogi's top members
    4. No more "AKB-member"-zaka foolishness
    5. The KKS are either promoted or gracefully let go so those poor girls can move on with their lives already
    6. More dorama, movie, TV, theatre and model opportunities for Nogi members
    7. New subunit
    8. Current single format continues
    9. Live shows start getting proper DVD releases
    10. Nogizaka gets their own Request Hour
    11. Amiami and Rarin continue getting featured regularly on BINGO and Doko


    Fears:
    1. Rena's kennin lasts as long as I suspect Ikoma's will
    2. Misamisa does not make Hachifukujin and continues to be ignored
    3. More "AKB member"-zaka foolishness
    4. Sony continues their abysmal handling of live shows
    5. Sales start to decline
    6. More scandals and tabloid drama

    Predictions:

    1. Ikoma's kennin will end up being a semi-perma deal like Jurina and Haruppi.
    2. Another "unexpected" center and one return center
    3. More "AKB member"-zaka foolishness
    4. Sony continues their absymal handling of live shows
    5. Sales pattern remains consistent with some ups and downs depending on hype and promotion
    6. Hoshimina returns to Hachifukujin
    7. Sagara Iori makes senbatsu debut
    8. At least one major graduation (looks like the rumor mill thinks that might be Nanamin?) and several UG/KKS grad.

    Hopes:
    - Ikomachan center again (she deserves it)
    - Princess Apple at her best (she seems to realize a lot of people support her) and in the front row
    - Wakatsuki Yumu-chan center
    - the cutest trio ever back : Ikuta/Ikoma/Hoshino (why not a triple center ? :p )
    - Sony releasing BR/DVD (Ok, I'm dreaming on this one)
    - under girls being given a A title (thus redefining the undergirls concept lol)
    - great titles (should be ok :p ) and being able to shake the AKB supremacy
    - Musikyun returns (and invites °C-utesan :p :D ) with Ringo-chan/Hashimito-chan/Wakatsuki-chan

    Fear:
    - sotsyugo: I'm being used to those girls now :p
    - Too much stress on the girls (center, fukujin, senbatsu, 16principal, kennin position... That's a lot of competition...) and loss of family spirit (because of the competition)
    - stupid so called "journalists" digging dirt and spreading gossips

    Predictions:
    - hum Nogizaka46 rocking the year ? :D
    - Mayuyu confessing to Ikomachan ? :D

    Not really good at predicting... I should be surprised :)

    - Sakurai Reika center
    - More Kazumin popularity
    - More rotating centers

    Fears:
    - Rumors
    - More of xxx-zaka46 (Although I wouldn't mind more AKB Nogi interaction if they went another way about it)
    - Scandals
    - Graduations

    Predictions:
    - More Rotating centers
    - Another Ikuta or Nanase center

    Hopes:
    - over 750k single
    - no more ○○zaka units
    - Nanase and Ikuchan both center a single
    - kouhaku invitation
    - continue the successfull trend of 2014 singles sound (ie. melodical sounds of kizuitara/nandome)
    - kennin stops or stays only Ikoma and Rena, I don't think any other girls would ever work
    - keep the rival feeling with akb, don't turn into another sister group (imo this is only way they can have true success)
    - Sayuringo sits out 1-2 singles. Only because I feel they have pure concept and it works so well for them, that no punishment would fly in the face and they lose fans

    Fears:
    - too much interaction with akb, so they lose that unique rival feeling
    - no kouhaku invitation
    - graduation of a top member
    - another scandal
    - 3rd generation even though 2nd gen hasn't done anything yet

    Predictions:
    - great songs, but sales can't pass 650k mark
    - Hoshimina gets really popular, seen as future of nogi along with Ikuchan
    - Rena/Ikoma kennin stays same
    - Kouhaku invitation

    Hopes:
    • Naachan center!
    • Kennin abolished
    • 2nd generation get more recognition and chances
    • More recognition for Nanamin (maybe a solo or center)
    • Nogibingo S4, more variety overall (and different members in outside programs)
    • Etou Misa stays in senbatsu
    • Rising sales, successful album, kouhaku
    • The management reacts to scandals in some way (e.g. Ringo out of senbatsu for one single)
    Fears:
    • Ikoma returning to center, return to 生生星
    • Graduations, especially of popular older members (Nanamin, Misa, Maiyan)
    • 2nd generation getting neglected as usual
    • Further integration to 48G: sousenkyo, more kennin, ほにゃらら坂 etc.
    • More scandals, management not reacting to scandals and angering fans
    • Exposing more skin in gravure, trying to sell with controversy of "Nogizaka in bikini!"
    Predictions:
    • Album doesn't sell too well due to the high price
    • Ikoma & Rena stay as kennin
    • Sayuringo stays in senbatsu
    • Ikuchan centers more singles
    • Graduations of less popular unders
    • Sousenkyo participation could happen, but it'd be controversial, especially if voting tickets are only in AKB singles
    Plus my personal hope: getting to meet my oshi, Nanase!
