    You know, after watching her perform Teresa 21, I want to see her on BananaSand.

    Might be a little off-topic so feel free to correct me if it is, but ex-SKE48 Oya Masana is a Christian as well. Matsui Jurina was brought up in a Catholic family but never disclosed her faith.
    Back to the Sakamichi groups, Nogi's Holy Mother Maimai ironically happened to be... A Buddhist.

    Teresa's name seems to have been picked for its meaning rather than for its sound or a possible biblical reference. The kanji for 瑛 (tere) is used in the word 玉瑛 (gyôkuei) which means crystal, while the kanji 紗 (sa) has been used to create fabric names, particularly for gauze. So the meaning of her name is basically "crystal gauze", which is incredibly cute and quite unusual. Pretty good summary of her character honestly!

    We can’t read the minds of Teresa’s parents… but I don’t think so. Primarily because Te-re-sa is an unusual name in Japan and sounds rather un-Japanese, so I don’t think most people would come up with it by reading kanji unless they’re trying really hard. 瑛 is more commonly read as e or ei, and it’s a rare kanji in the first place. If her parents really wanted the kanji, the reverse Sae 紗瑛 is also a viable and more Japanese-sounding name. “Crystal gauze” doesn’t ring any bells for me either as an especially meaningful or trope-y combination of words, but I could be wrong.

    That being said, Teresa isn’t necessarily a Western culture reference either. The most well-known Teresa in Japan is probably the Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng, who I believe Bananaman mentioned at some point in response to Teresa’s name. Her parents might’ve just thought it’s a cool name.
    To get really off-topic… Nogi names I think are most obviously sound-first:
    Saya 紗耶: Both kanji are mostly only used in names for their sounds.
    Sayaka 紗耶香: Same as above, plus 香 (fragrance) which is very often used for the ka sound.
    Riria 理々杏: 理 (reason, logic) 々 (symbolizes repetition of the previous kanji) 杏 (apricot) = A very reasonable apricot. Sounds like a name you get by working backwards from sound.

    Names I think are most obviously meaning-first:
    Nagi 和 (harmony): 和 wa is a common kanji. Nagi is a common name. Nagi is a super-rare reading of 和 that you’ll never encounter.
    Sakura 桜: Duh.
    Hazuki 葉月 (leaf moon/month, the traditional Japanese name for August): This means she was born in August.

    But really, names contain both sound and meaning, parents can pick based on both simultaneously. It’s also pretty easy to pick a specific kanji or a specific theme, and then come up with many different names around that. Even choosing kanji that are neutral/common can be deliberate to avoid floweriness.

    Terepan was featured on Nogi Audition CM, did u guys think it's a hint that she's been confirmed as one of nogi's pillar from 5th gen? She's grow a lot, and I believe she have this aura to stand as center rn. But I wouldn't put too much expectation tho...

    ^ I certainly hope so. If history repeat itself, Kubo was selected among 3ki as promo member of 5ki audition, instead of Yoda. Then she became w-center although much later.
    But yeah, I also don't want to expect too much, she could be featured because she is a senbatsu member who can enter prestigious university.

    She deserves it. And watching the airport fancams in HK when the girls landed a few days ago, she was the one that fans swarmed around the most... and she reacted by giving each fan a bright smile & a wave, i think she got a couple of fangifts/fanletters as well. She's such a sweetheart, beautiful outside & inside and her name fits her to a T. I guess i too have been converted.

    @Bibi and @baymon, me also: I hope so but I keep it deep in my heart as a fragile and precious wish... Terepan is an idol for whom I've felt unprecedented affection and admiration so far. Even among my oshis from other groups (e.g. Sakutrazaka which is my number 1 even from the Keyaki era) she is the girl I would pick if I had to choose one and only one...

    Therefore I don't want to jinx it...!

    On the other hand, 5th gens are ALL so talented and such wonderfull kids... And looking at with an objective judgement, there are better girls regarding voice and singing. Regarding dancing I cannot judge, she seems to be among the best but not top-notch. On the looks department she is a top-gun but that's exactly the most subjective area (the famous eye of the beholder), so...

    I'm super happy to see her popularity at high levels and I rejoice with everything good that comes her way. I just want her to be happy!

    Any member of Nogizaka can center. Should any though?

    Don't think this is a knock on Teressapan. I think management has a certain type in mind that she doesn't quite conform to.

    That being said, in my opinion, I think she will settle into a fukujin spot for a long time. Her role reminds me of Nanamin's -- the very cool, super popular member always in the front. I think that's a good comparison. She can definitely reach that level.

    I’m not surprised since she’s the most popular among Chinese fans.

    I somewhat agree. I would love to see Terepan center but I think mgmt would give the nod to Mao before her.

    I'd like to see another center coming out of 5th before 6th gen enters the scene. But it's still unpredictable with these girls (except for Nagi). Aruno will be back. Aya has good potential. Iroha starting to build a little momentum. The best part for me about this group is the competition. Their main challenge is to catch up with Nagi, who will surely hold several center position. If their ceiling is that of Tamura or Yumiki, that's not too bad. No one expect them to center but they're permanent Senbatsu.

    I won't look into that audition CM too much. That's all it is - an audition CM. Hong Kong reception is great. I've seen several posts on X and a few that made me happy were the long line of congratulatory flowers for Ioki Mao and her subway station Ad. It means there is fan support which is always a good sign. But there's nothing more to it when it comes to any future push.

    More graduations are coming, 6th gen is on the way. I'm expecting an announcement anytime soon. We'll probably see the most number of 5th gen selected on their next single.

    This hypothesis maybe unrelated about Nogi Center requirement ( W center not Included). But is there any Nogi Center that dont have swimsuit photo ? I exclude W center because as i know Ozono Momoko the only center without swimsuit photo.
    As far i know Teresa never show her wearing swimsuit in photography, meanwile Nagi show abit risky swimsuit photo in gen 5 photobook in swimming pool.

    I come up with this question/hypothesis because pervert Ito in Nogistar tanjou branzenly asking Mao photobook is there swimsuit photo in her photobook.
