    agree Mirinya is pretty, but don't get why she is the only one that gets that much more attention for shoots.
    Don't quite understand also why she's the only one allowed to have Instagram account
    also has anyone seen recent tweet pics of Iori? what's happened to her hair?

    ^ that's how Sasshi explained Mirinya's Instagram.

    as for gravure... well, Mirinya is THE visual and fashion leader of the group (I see her as Kojiharu of =LOVE)), so it's only natural that she's been in demand more. apart from demand, there are probably members who are unwilling to do gravure (or can't because of young age), but Mirinya doesn't mind it, so she's a perfect match between demand and supply))

    I don't think there anything wrong with Iori's hair, it's just horns (jk) [hehe]

    Imamura Mitsuki (STU) shows =LOVE goods she got in =LOVE Valentine Cafe. she and Anna were members of idol group SPL∞ASH previously.

    15:09-


    Yamashita Mizuki (Nogizaka) made a song quiz in Nogi blog, and one of the songs she questioned about was "Ikorabu Numa".
    she described it as "lala lalalaaa lala lalalaaa"))

    http://blog.nogizaka46.com/third/2018/02/043203.php

    funny that both girls have the same name 美月 (Mits(z)uki)

    ==========

    Anna mentioned in today's SR that while they were practicing for Kemono Friends, there were =LOVE cameras, so next episode(s) of =LOVE documentary will probably be about backstage of this stage play. can't wait.
    and I think they'll announce 3rd single soon. probably on the first or final day of the stage play (2/15-2/18).

    Mirinya ranked 6th in "Female idols that you think are good at using SNS"!
    she was 8th in the "What idol do you think has the cutest face now" ranking! :1st:

    both =LOVE singles ranked in the top 10 (6th and 9th) of "Idol songs that you want to copy the most" ranking!

    what's the difference between the first and 2nd list? I can the 2nd list has something to do with cuteness but the first one I'm not sure? but seems like Sashihara topped that one

    with Ekimemo, Maika and Nagisa's voice is quite distinctive, but harder to tell was Iori as the third fairy. also the 2 main school girls.....Hitomi and Hana?

    "Mirinya ranked 6th in "Female idols that you think are good at using SNS"!
    she was 8th in the "What idol do you think has the cutest face now" ranking!"

    First list has 大谷映美里 in 6th, and the second has 大谷映美里 in 8th.

    大谷映美里 is Otani Emiri or Mirinya.

    Like @fatrain already said in the post, just above the two lists, the first one is about best social media users and the second about cute faces.

    I'm really impressed Mirinyan is just behind Kojiharu and even above Mayuyu. She's been an idol for about a year, and they've been idols for +10 years :1st:

    thanks for the explanation, I don't know how I missed that when I posted the question, by the time @sscrla replied I looked back and was wondering how I missed that.

    with the SNS though since Emiri gets to use Instagram as well she was obviously gonna get more influence than the others. still feel its a bit unfair that she's the only one allowed Instagram

    but overall glad to hear their singles have got staying power, I'm not surprised Bokura is still high int he charts but quite impressed that =LOVE is still in the list

    Naatan's blue contact lenses with the usual white outfit look freaky :XD:
    I wonder if she forgot to take them off after play or left them on deliberately.

    Might be possible, an announcement should be made soon anyways, keeping my fingers crossed :fear:
    Also, contact-lenses-Naachan is something I don't want to meet in the dark lol... looks scary somehow :yikes:
