    That 5 girls unit wasn't bad idea.
    But make that SUBUNIT was too ironic to me...

    I talking now these who sings one song to 13 single.
    But I don't think is right time to subunit...

    How else would you promote unders to the public? Clearly, senbatsu is good as it is (give or take 2 people). There's really no other way to promote girls without sacrificing some popular front-line member.

    No problem! I guess I was able to see it since I remember finding particularly unique girls in AKB48 back when new subunits were being launched every other week.

    Girls like Mocchi, Akicha, Wasamin I wouldn't really have been able to find without their respective subunits. I'm sure that we could do the same for Nogi too

    Hopes:
    • Sales continue to rise
    • Hori center or at least in senbatsu
    • More 2nd gen promotions
    • No keyaki member in any single
    • No 3rd gen (why make 3rd when they can't even do anything with 2nd yet)
    Fears:
    • Kennin with keyaki
    • Again no 2nd gen in senbatsu or only 1 in senbatsu
    • Stay very predictable
    • Sales fall
    • Become more like a 48g instead of a 46g
    Predictions:
    • Sales rise, but don't reach 750k
    • Because of the sales not reaching as high, they announce kennin or keyaki member in senbatsu
    • Ikoma center the summer single
    • No new centers this year
    • Again 2nd gen will not get more than 1 member in senbatsu for any single
    • Nogi will become more like AKB, and the rival feeling will become less and less
    • 3rd gen announcement

    Hopes:
    • Popularity rise for the group and all members
    • more external resources for the members, such as dramas, advertisements and musicals
    • more variety shows like nogibingo
    • sub units according to the different styles of members
    • more chance for 2nd members to present themselves
    Fears:
    • Ikoma got more haters
    • recruitment of 3rd generation members, while the current undergirls still don't have much chances
    • kennin to other idol groups, including 48G and keyakizaka46
    • popular members, like maiyan, misa and nanamin graduate
    Predictions:
    • sales of handshake events and singles continue to rise
    • Ikuta will be the center of 14th single, while Asuka will be for 15th single
    • 2nd generation members, like Hori, Hinako & Ranze will be in sebutsu
    • some of the popular members might graduate
    Edit on 10 Jan: maimai graduated...

    Hopes:
    See the 2nd gen get their own show, put them on NogiBingo
    Have Hori in all single senbatsu
    Fukagawa get into front row in senbatsu
    Hopefully some kind of overseas event for the girls to promote themselves
    Some sort of kennin from akb to nogizaka (idk why people are so negative about this)

    Fears:
    Another show gets cancelled like Sagara's
    More graduation announcements
    INJURIES

    Predictions:
    Drama roles for at least 5 different members
    Nanamin in less than 50 variety show appearances
    Hori becomes more popular

    EDIT: Goddamnit, 1 fear has come true

    I think it's still ok to post here since it's only half of January.

    Hopes:
    - Center for either Ikuchan (hopes she'll be the center for their next single), Maiyan (solo), Captain, Waka, Nanamin, Kazumin, basically everyone except for Nachan and Ikomachan. As much as I love those two I think it's better if every single will have a new center.
    - Unders (Himetan, Nojo) and 2nd gens (Hori, Kitano) to be included on Senbatsu.
    - At least 750k singles sold.
    - Nogizaka46 to get even more popular.
    - Asian tour!
    - Kouhaku invite again
    - 2nd season of Bemars

    Fears:
    - Nachan to be a center again for the 14th single. Don't get me wrong, I love her ( I can't hate any members of nogizaka46). Make her a center at least for their fall single.
    - Kennin from Akb, keyizaka.
    - Ikomachan and Sayurin to be dropped completely from senbatsu.
    - More prominent members graduating. Pls don't graduate yet, I am still new to the fandom.

    Predictions:
    - Nachan will be the center again if not for the 14th single, it'll be for their fall/summer single.
    - Ikomachan and Sayurin remain on the senbatsu.
    - Ikomachan will not be a center again at least until 2017.
    - Hori wil be in all singles this year.
    - More Photobooks

    Hopes:
    -Acquire some great 3rd Gen new members
    -Some more 2nd gen promotions
    -Oversea tour (in the U.S. would be great)
    -A Center who have never been at the position before
    -More great interaction segments between Under-Members and Senbatsu members in Under Construction episodes (Senpai Valentine 2 part episodes were hilarious)
    -Ikuta Erika (Ikuchan) will bring out more weirdness from other members, and I hope to see more gaps from the members!
    -Crazy and hilarious single campaigns
    -Have new Variety Show but not like AKBingo like the 1st season of Nogibingo!
    -Battle against one of the AKB Groups
    -Another Live special
    -Pick up a 3rd-gen member that can speaks English
    -Himetan will surpass her sister's popularity
    -Rottii gets her own song
    -Have a RunningMan-like special episode
    -Captain rank will be awarded to someone other than Reika-chan
    -Being in more great movies & dramas

    Fears:
    >Disappointing Singles sells
    >Management failing in doing anything to promote Under Girls, 2nd, and 3rd gen members
    >Another Scandal or contract termination that hurts the group; the worse case would be if it's Matsumura again
    >Concurrent and shocking graduation announcements
    >The Group being pushed to be another AKB48's copy, you know what I mean...
    >Bananaman duo quits from being MC, and replaced by a mediocre one
    >A forgetful 3rd Gen picks
    >Under Construction show is dropped/cancelled
    >One of the regular Senbatsu members will be demoted
    >Not doing anything special for Rarin/Seira for her graduation
    >One of the graduated members goes to an AV route
    >One of the fav/popular members goes into a hiatus and suspense her activities
    >Releasing oversexualized gravure photobooks

    Predictions/Expectation:
    ~Expect more graduation announcements
    ~Predictable Senbatsu lineup with some changes from the back
    ~Expect Rarin/Seira-chan balling her eyes out as she being center of Kimi no Na wa Kibou from her graduation concert
