    I'm not totally against it but I just wish HHE has a proper plan with this and not just doing it on a whim.

    Also I hope they learned their mistakes and not make it a survival show/segment in It's Showtime.

    But the theater isn't finished yet. They didn't send the 2018 kami 7 to Japan like as promised. And the Next Girls, Under Girls from the 1st elections weren't given songs (yet?).

    Just hope they don't over extend themselves by literally doubling the entire roster other wise might as well call us MNL96.

    Best case scenario its just auditions to create our Team 4.
    Either 16 or less (with some KKS promoted to playable.)

    What makes you say that?

    Unless...


    What if we are getting a 46? That would be mind blowing

    You know, I was gonna comment that this whole second gen is a bad idea...

    But a 46 group...very interesting.
    But...how would they even do that? Or name it? Antipolo46 or something weird like that? Lol

    What if this 2nd gen is just gonna be less than 10 members though? Maybe this is just a way for them to keep the girls on their toes and to not be complacent (especially the more popular ones). For all we know it can just be filled with a few girls who have really strong backers.

    Call me a rumor freak or whatever but the rumor that's going on about mass graduation of most of 1st gen and 2nd gen auditions just really bother me. I hope it's not true and at least only 10 members are selected for 2nd gen.

    Also I wish HHE will clarify things about this.

    Not really sure what to think of the 2nd generation auditions just yet, but I think we'll just have to wait for the guidelines to be released to come to any conclusions. There might be some hints on there to what we might expect to come from this~~

    Antipolo 46?!?!?!


    MOFO that's actually great idea. Now I no longer have to associate Antipolo with Catholic Schools and super crowded CHurches for pilgrims who are about to make a offshore journey.

    Our lady of Peace and Good Voyage... pray for us....


    HM... my Business brain is on fire right now... Peace and Good Voyage... aren't 46 songs less... funky more Elegant right? Plus have the 46'ers get sponsored by some Travelling Company and voila!~~~ a strong Marketing Campaign.

    Forced, mass graduations have never happened though. Of course, we don't know what happens behind the scenes but still. If there will be a bunch of girls graduating, then it'll likely be of their own free will. Perhaps, with 2nd gen incoming, they've finally decided it's the perfect opportunity to take a different path. We can't blame them for not wanting to be idols anymore. Remember, even the current senbatsu still have dreams of pursuing other careers after their idol journey. Of course, on the flip side, some girls may want to graduate simply because they feel under utilized in the group. Their motivation decreases and they decide to leave. Again, we can't blame them for that and more of the management.

    TBH I find the whole "boycotting of buying MNL merch until management does something" a little childish. These same people participating in the boycott are also the ones demanding for higher budget MVs and events. So explain to me how they'll be able to create better music videos without the money exactly? I've ranted enough on Twitter, but it's actually very easy for us to talk to the management about our concerns. We just have to do it respectfully and give constructive criticism, not rant and whine like babies.

    I still think it's a bit early for them to have a 2nd Gen. I think they should be called 1.5 Gen. Lol. But, let's wait and see what comes out of this.

    Based on what we know:
    -App Registration
    -Online Only
    -Only through February

    That's not a lot of time, so if I were to guess:
    10ish winners, combine with current Kenkyuusei, Team 4-2(?)

    Well... The only thing we can all do now is wait... And see who to root for once HHE starts publicizing the auditions.

    Hope the girls themselves also introduce themselves too.

    auditionees should start cleaning up their social media as early as now even though its not the final round yet, people will start digging who/where/how they live, there will always be a snake willing to pull you down.
