    Hopes
    Kiichan front row(or even center)
    Yoda Yuki will be the most prominent 3rd gen

    Predictions
    No big changes besides graduations
    One or two 3rd gens graduate

    Hopes
    • I suppose I'll start to hope for the million now it's close.
    • One proper mainstream hit.
    • Kouhaku #3
    • New drama
    • Some more streams.
    • Border Unit. Get dem in the damn senbatsu, already
    • 3rd gens aren't ignored, but aren't favoured in a way that hurts them.
      • First 3rd gen enters senbatsu by summer, but not in centre position.
    • Outside jobs continue/increase.
    • More photobooks (beyond Maiyan2 and Ashu1) and models (Ashu return to contracted)
    Fears
    • Same senbatsu minus the same handful of members rotating
    • Centre is just a game and no gravitas is given to the position.
    • No new shows, just Nogichu and bingo
    • One of Junna, Kotoko and Ayane (perhaps even Iori or Renachi) will leave. Those three are due to graduate high school soon.
      • I'm hoping Ranze is safe, because she's going to be in the 17th single A-side. Right?!
    Predictions
    • Grad watch
      • Border unit are unsafe, as above. Add Iori and Maichun because growing older + independent.
      • 1st gens: Kawago (no Maimai), Kanarin (seems bored lately, though maybe the 3rd gens will keep her due to lolicon), Maaya also seems unusually frustrated. Finally Nojo must know her idol career is over, and Kawamura, that she's wasted.
      • Hoping that older fronts Eto and Maiyan don't both go, and even if one does it'll only be an announcement this year. Same time frame as Nanamin so it's a full year apart.
    • Typical centre for the 17th (hoping Maiyan or Nanase, but Ashu or Ikuchan would be good). Cool song.
    • Upbeat summer song as usual. Would be nice to break that trend by doesn't look like we ever will.

    Hopes:
    • That 1 million selling single, finally
    • Ikuchan solo single...? Nah, she's going to get too busy.
    • Kazumin center for a single
    • More outside jobs
    • More 2nd gen members in senbatsu
    • 3rd gen getting enough exposure so that we can learn more about them
    • Kouhaku for the 3rd time
    • Tokyo Dome concert
    • Nogi visits America (I'm going to hope for this again...if it's not LA, I will happily spend my money on that airplane tix just to see them.)
    Fears:
    • 2nd gen not getting enough exposure again and 3rd gen getting the same treatment
    • Mass graduations
    • Senbatsu stays stagnant
    • Nogi reaching their peak in popularity and sales already and starting to decrease in both as a result
    Predictions:
    • Another popular 1st gen member graduating...I predict Maiyan this time
    • Sales will keep rising gradually
    • We'll finally know who the 3rd gen ace is
    • New Nogi drama
    • Ikuchan spending less time in Nogi stuff due to her busy schedule full of musicals
    • Nanase comes back as center for one single, but then center will keep changing
    • Ikoma back in Fukujin
    Those are all I have for now, and now for last year's predictions...

    Overall, I think I wasn't too bad. :)

    Also, you didn't need to quote my whole post; none of my 2017 predictions mentioned 16nin no principal nor 3nin no principal. :blink:

    Hopes
    A single with 1000000 sales.
    4 singles this year.
    Senbatsu: new centers and many changes in third row.
    Ranze, Ayane and Miria and maybe a 3rd gen debut in senbatu.
    Nakada Kana and Noujo Ami return, Ikoma and Sayuringo drop.

    Fears
    I don't think i have fears except maybe a Manattan center single :shock:, or bad songs like HKT's.

    Predictions
    Many undergirls and a popular member will graduate. I bet on Maiyan, Maichun, Noujo Ami and Ito Karin.
    We will have at least a new center (probably Eto) and a w-center.
