Mahohon as captain? LOL.
It is just a name. I am not surprised if some of them end up in team G instead.
Also D3 just has few months advance compared to Gen 2. They will be promoted along with top Gen2 members.
Finally! Congrats to the KKS (it was long overdue) and Katomina for the captaincy! Now may the 2nd gen come!
The shuffle is pretty similar to what many already predicted. Like I knew they were going to keep Ogiyuka, Katomina and Moeka in Team NIII and RikaHina will be moved to Team G, but I was only hoping they would make Katomina captain/vc!
Surprised about Gatanee, I expected she would be in Team G as captain/vc. Maybe Kitarie will assign her as NGT48 captain tomorrow?
Team G captaincy candidates are Hinatan, Ayutarou and Mahohon.
Happy with the shuffle, they balanced the top member between the two teams.
Congrats to the kenkyuusei :')
Excited to see what kind of image they end up developing
You forgot Rie’s shadow captain.
Betting 5 cent on Ayutaro vice and Mofu captain in Team G
not much faith with a 5 cents bet?
Fun fact, there's actually a full paragraph in today's LINE blog describing the reason Katomina will be captain, so there's really no need to make any put-downs in the guise of hypotheses, really...
Quick translation to facilitate the understanding:
Moreover, for the position of new Team NIII captain once Kitahara Rie will have graduated, Kato Minami has been designated. This is something that was decided after having had a consultation also with Kitahara herself. While Kato may also have an eccentric side to her that is difficult to grasp, it's also true that she loves her hometown of Niigata, and thus she performs her job while regarding all the activities as a member of NGT48 with great pride. More and more often, she would come here to discuss and express her opinion not only about her own personal matters, but also about the group as a whole. As such, we feel she is very dependable. We believe that, with Kato there, even a collection of unique personalities like our members are would be willing to cooperate by all giving their hand, and with it unity, coordination and solidarity would be born in a spontaneous way. Even as far as Kato herself is concerned, with her appointment as captain to serve as an opportunity, new charms/merits will surely find a way to flourish.
Also, it has already been pointed out in part by Forrest Fuller, but the shonichi for both new teams will not happen until the beginning of July. The current Team NIII and Kenkyuusei stages will continue up until the second half of June, keeping the current formations. By then, the 2nd generation will be already there and ready to help (and given the expected numbers of new members, they'll have enough to form even a third team)
@Cisalpine88 thanks for the translation.
Still, they’re obviously not going to say “We’re giving her the captaincy because we have no idea what to do with her” because that would be rude and wrong.
She might indeed be a great captain, but this move reminds me a lot of Ryoha’s, which was basically a “We’re going to focus on other girls, so here’s this”.
Or some said the same about Ogiyuka given the sub captaincy because they weren't going to push her much.
she was pushed because of her ssk success
In Ogiyuka's case, the fans really made the difference. Katomina's fans...... do your bit
Rikahime for Team G captain!
*Team G members running around while screaming, there's fire everywhere, Etsuro so pissed off he runs outside to jump into the water to cool off his burning head, Nakai is sitting in a corner, painting her nails while sighing, “うるさい！“*

The curious cases of captain Okada Nana and co-captain Miyawaki Sakura.
Seeing her cry back then at those preliminary results, hurt like a motherf****, then seeing her break down at the rank-in-concert was a another hit to the face, and last but not least her speech at her seitansai totally made us get real. Might be quite the unfortunate situation right now to use that word, but get ready for dem "Minanukes" We'll do our best~
