    I am glad the MV for Sing Out! turned out good. Although I am still expecting the song to grow on me, the MV is a huge plus. I can forgive the similarities with Synchronicity, because for me, this one is better. Kubochan can be found! Just in case you haven't noticed, her skirt color is a different shade of purple that is not replicated in any other members' costumes, so finding her is easier. A simple nitpick, but I hope it's a good sign.

    This part right here stands out for me, because she's at the dead center of the frame, and the choreography emphasizes it. The merit of the back center position.

    Some dance parts that I can't overlook and make me like her more

    And this part here, where she doesn't face the camera but the sharpness of her movement can be seen.

    Thank you, Nogizaka.

    Bocchan, Junna, and Karin performing Watashi no Tame ni, Dareka no Tame ni during Under Live, December 20th 2018. There was a footage from Nogiten for this perf, but this one released in Nogifes is the full performance (although I think it's also cut).
    Can't rip it myself and since it's not yet on Youtube, I took it from Weibo. Short video but showcased their level as idols who can sing. Kubochan now has experienced trio performances with almost all Nogi singers available.

    From Zambi

    Feeling cute, might sing later idk
    Sporting a triangular outfit

    i think she should be push like a face. i meant her push need to be bigger. maybe two consecutive solo centres and some acting roles or maybe solo single release. mizuki can be push in acting as she seems good with it.

    Not sure about that. I would like it cause I like her. But as a "face" of the group and multiple center it has to come naturally, when she reaches a point that it would be indesputable for everyone that she should deserve it. I prefer that to a 'forced' one, and the competition in 3rd gen is so strong, there are multiple popular girls.

    Now I'm hoping for a W/Center with another 3rd gen girl (Mizuki?) for summer single.

    It was announced in last month's LINE LIVE (with Haruka) that there will be Kubochan's LINE MUSIC playlist, with songs she personally selected. It comes out today, named "Kubo Shiori no Kyou wo Shiawase ni suru Playlist (Kubo Shiori's playlist that brings today's happiness)": https://music.line.me/playlist/upi7nLrdtfvhxjzl8uBLZxbNdaB4GvpSv9dD

    Just in case people want to search the songs (figured not a lot of us are using LINE MUSIC) I noted down the romaji of the song titles for the ease of searching (Song title - Artist - Album):
    1. Namida ga mada kanashimi datta koro - Nogizaka46 - Boku dake no kimi~Under Super Best

    7. Koko ni shika sakanai hana - Kobukuro - ALL TIME BEST 1998-2018

    29. Ato hitotsu - FUNKY MONKEY BABYS - 10th Anniversary "Complete Best"
    30. Naimononedari - Nogizaka46 - Sayonara no Imi (Special Edition)
    Note: Since 18 and 19 are choir songs, it will be hard to find (unless you are a LINE MUSIC user, ofc)
    And a trivia, Kubochan mentioned several times in her mobame that she watches anime Haikyuu!! so I guess it's natural for her to put in two of its opening songs (12 and 13). 14 is also an opening of anime, Kemono no Souja Erin.

    Catching up, in other (old) news, former model of Seventeen and Asadora actress Nagano Mei posted a tweet about Kubochan three weeks ago, saying
    "Cute cute
    This is Kubo Shiori
    A present to heal everyone"

    By the time I posted this the tweet has over 60K likes. It's nice to know that she's still in touch with Kubochan even after she graduated from Seventeen, and I am grateful to her for promoting her junior. Here's hoping Kubochan can also be as successful as her, one day :)

    Kubochan's LINE LIVE with Mayuchan as guest yesterday
    So much fun. Mayu is an older junior but there is no awkward feeling at all, it's as if they are long time friends. I love the part when Kubochan tricked Mayu to do impromptu zukkyun during her introduction.
    This particular moment almost turned disaster though :^^;:

    Photo from Yodachan's blog yesterday (thanks Yodachan!)
    Maybe it's just me but I am seeing Ikuchan in her facial expression. But maybe it's because I'm euphoric when Kubochan said she talks a lot with Ikuchan nowadays

    On the other hand...
    Call me dramatic but today, 30th June 2019, marks one year since Kubochan announced her hiatus.
    Dark times indeed. So much has happened in a year, so much has changed. Looking back a bit, to be hopeful for an even brighter future.

    One more thing, check out Kubochan's latest gravure from Gekkan Entame August issue (thank you @hiroto for uploading)
    I can't wait for Kubochan to graduate
    From high school.

    I really like her in her LINE LIVE show. She's so lively (and lovely too!) and looks so friendly with her kouhai. I believe she will get a lot love if we have koujichuu valentine spesial next year :hehe:

    The eyes of sailor moon fans will be strict, but I think Kubo can make it.

    Not directly related, but I was just strolling around on youtube after this stage play announcement and stumbled upon this new teaser

    Seems like the anime will have a movie next year. Looks like it will be the continuation of Sailor Moon Crystal, but the character design is changed to look closer to the original 90's anime because the original character designer Tadano Kazuko finally gets back to the project after 25 years. I guess this might be the reason why they recreate the stage play too, for more hype. Gets me excited :D

    1. She mentioned that she's interested in knitting after that Gakutabi episode she was in.
    4. That is not a color, girl.
    5. This is the first time I find her giving an answer other than dog.
    11. She's a scaredy-cat, so technically anything with loud noise scares her.
    14. About Jibun janai Kanji
    18. This one gives me mixed feelings. The answer can be interpreted in several ways. First, it's her feeling and not necessarily the truth. Second, it's the truth, as in it's explicit for her that at the moment she is not being prioritized. And there are two ways on how she takes it; she's okay with the situation, or she's not satisfied. I hope for the latter.
    25. Do you want to be captain?
    34. Manatsu, Reika, Waka, Kanarin (afaik their only song is Kokuhaku no Junban)
    35. lit. 'That's right'
