As far as Sayu goes, I'd describe her following as "very passionate" to put it a nice way, rather than large. Her HS sales are interesting to watch, as she actually used to sell out more blocks before, but I think there's a reasonable explanation for the decrease. As a sayurist myself, I feel like she really doesn't do very well with multiple loops or longer sessions - basically, there's not a lot to talk about. This appears to be a general opinion among fans, so one usually doesn't buy more than 1-3 tickets per block. And while most of my fandom friends are sayurists, and really great people - some sayurists also have a tendency to come off as very elitist and exclusive, which frankly might turn some fans away from even giving her a chance. Asuka's fanbase might give off a similar vibe, although from experience they're generally lighter in tone. Nanase's fanbase or the Maimin, in contrast, come off as very easygoing and inclusive to me. Even their more hardcore top wotas. Fans feeling comfortable with other fans could play in somewhat for a girl's popularity at these events, as they are social gatherings as much as they are a way to meet your oshimen. --- @kanjo Amen.
