    don't know why, but I suddenly get a whole bunch of "Making of ... Team Surprise" videos in my Youtube feed ....

    anyway, amongst them this one:

    some video editor must have missed this in the background at 4:36 though o_O
    (and I still think even then she looked cute... )

    It does explain why she was so happy when the director announced they were finished.

    When were these Team Surprise videos taken? :confused: I knew it was a while ago because we still have Takamina, Paruru and Kawaei in the videos but for Miichan to still have a buzz cut?? I'm very surprised

    well, must have been 2013 I guess, its still really really short ..... I was more surprised they didn't edit it out ... or blurred it (because I've seen that happen to ex-member in old clips they played in AKBingo) .... but you can see her go left where the rest goes right (and it's a blink and you would miss it moment)

    I wondered about that too and I assume that in old contracts, I guess once you were out of the group, you were out completely? They don't blur graduated members out anymore. But for example they released a Best Of album in 2007 called "SETLIST ~Greatest Songs 2006-2007~" and then they re-issued it in 2010 and instead of making a new cover, they simply put white dots over graduated members and text that said "[Name] graduated on [date]"

    Oh, I assumed those were member who got discharged due to a scandal or activities post AKB that were less reputable ... (ok, that probably says something about how my sordid mind works :/ )

    A random thought: Regarding Miichan's conflict-averting response to the NGT crisis, I think it's not so much that Miichan would look like a hypocrite for calling out the members dating other people: after all, the real offense is not that these girls are in relationships, but the fact that they are bringing unwanted elements (a.k.a. men) straight into their shared living quarters without their roommates' consent and endangering the integrity of said roommates who they should be looking out for the way these same girls try to do for them.

    But whatever Miichan does, she's gonna receive amounts of harassment that no other member should have to. Even as a super senpai, her power is diminished by the same power dynamics that enabled Mahohon's assault: favor from the Management, which to be honest she doesn't have enough of anymore. But considering the completely unbalanced scale of punishment she had to endure for meeting one person in their completely private home where they were bothering no one else, where she never hurt anyone nor did anything with malicious intent, in reality she should be the one whose voice people from all corners should be asking for, even above Sasshi.

    After all, management is protecting members with even less leverage in trajectory, popularity, general recognition, experience, respect among the community, for something way more heinous than just being in love with a man (if we treat "love" as a heinous thing of course); literally endangering the physical and psychological wellbeing of another girl, for the "crime" of being uncomfortable with her space being invaded by unsavory people.

    Miichan should be a protector in this situation, she should be one of the loudest voices advocating for justice for her courageous kouhai, she should be seeking to hang out with her and show her complete endorsement, but in the messed up board that everyone is playing in, she's completely blocked off from doing the good we know she is able to do. Logically, us from the outside can see the power that Miichan's voice could hold as one of the biggest victims of poor management decisions... but I'm afraid that Japanese wotas are unable to see the parallels between these two girls and will do anything in their power to negate any sort of intervention from her. I am sure that Miichan feels powerless in all of this. She knows the power dynamics at play and how they connect to everything that is happening. She was the focus of international outrage herself, though I feel like the internet could have been a little more helpful to protect her as well.

    But that's the problem with 'bellringers' .... the internet loves to jump on the band wagon and declare how unjust the treatment is ....
    but in the whole international Miichan outrage there was nothing done for her apart from some lip service that she shouldn't be punished or be free to date, it was quickly transformed into the story western media, sjws etc. wanted to push (or papers to sell or YouTube clicks to get) all this so people could display their righteous indignation.
    For Miichan it only resulted in hurting her standing/career inside Japan a lot.

    And you mention Sasshii ... Sasshii is a rare 'beast' ... Sasshii defied all expectations by winning the SSK 5 times .... Sasshii is a sort of force of nature, Sasshii also has a different image ... so I think it's easier for her to speak out.


    I just saw that clip from the 'emergency meeting' about the love ban rule ... she turned it into a Joke, but it's pretty clear Miichan doesn't really want to speak out on this subject


    meanwhile ...
    DxHcm8QUYAMff24.jpg DxHcm8OU0AE2amz.jpg
    that's Hinami Kyooko ... who is seriously pretty .... now what did Nyan-nyan say Miichan? "if you befriend pretty people, you always have to be the funny one, so stop that" ;)

    not sure how they met, but a quick search turned up that they have been friends for some time now.

    just as reference:

    ちょっと前に #峯岸みなみ ちゃん所属の #AKB48 #チームK のLIVEにいってきました! チームKのKってなんのK? 色んなKを見ることができて、その度に みなみちゃんを始め、メンバーの皆さんは 表情や衣装が変化していて、楽しかったです。 みなみちゃんはもちろん好きで、 込山さん可愛いかった。☺️
    -------------------------
    I went #峯岸みなみ to live belonging a little while ago #AKB48 #チームK! What is the K of team K? I was able to see various k, and started Minami-chan every time, and everyone of members had changed the expression and the costume, and it was fun. Minami-chan was of course fond of it, and Komiyama-san was pretty.☺️
