    They continue to push fukujin members as they would in Nogi, gives the members something to work towards.
    Fukujin members change depending on popularity and management choice. No fixed center's or permanent members in fukujin unless they're like Maiyan/Asuka level lol
    Under members continue to receive good songs and promotions so that they don't feel inferior and grad.
    They continue to push a handful of 1st gen members, the members in senbatsu are a good choice.
    They also push a handful of 2nd gen members so that we don't end up with a akb situation.
    They miraculously make it into Kouhaku, just so they can show the nation who they are properly.
    The promotion they receive rivals the promotion they were getting in 2017 or Hinata's first year of debut.
    Model contracts for Koike and Akanen, and for 2ki (Runrun, Hono, Seki, Ten, Rena, Rei)

    Graduations and scandals.
    Management continue to be incompetent.
    Seeing Yuuka apologize for something that isn't her fault again.

    Regardless of what happens, I'll continue to support the group and members in the future.

    Consistent promotions (either three singles next year or two singles and an album).
    Modeling contracts for 2ki, specifically Hono, Yumiko and Ten.
    Hono center in the future.
    Hikaru not centering every B-side.
    Good sales.
    No or at least a couple of graduations next year.

    Sales are not good, lower than Hinata's.
    The mainstream public not caring after Hirate is gone.
    1ki graduating en masse.
    More love scandals.

    No Kohaku this year.

    That management have learned from their many, many mistakes.
    That people can view this as a clean slate.
    That people who maybe didn't like Keyakizaka give this new iteration a chance.
    That the group is a LOT more democratic instead of being built entirely around one person.
    That nobody gets permanently stuck in the back row.
    Good songs. Good sales for the first single and decent promotion for it.
    No scandals, drama etc.

    The opposite of all of the above.
    Further 1st gen graduations, there are so few of them left.

    The single will sell like hotcakes.
    Management will not have entirely learned from their mistakes.
    At least 2 more 1st gens will graduate in the next 6 months. including Pe. Which will start a domino effect with those who are left.

    Good music, choreo and promotion, especially promotion
    Modeling deals for some girls including Honyo, Yumiko, Ten, Rikopi and Larme for Muuchan
    Members to be more involved with the production
    Less reliance on handshake and start building the fandom on the public (music quality!)
    Formation rotation

    Bad promotion and music quality
    More scandals and graduations
    A handful of members will never be included in senbatsu
    Senbatsu to be chosen entirely by popularity and not with skills/compatibility
    3ki audition

    Hikaru to be center for first 3 singles, mostly RisaPon flanking
    1st single to sell ~600-700k
    Kouhaku appearance performing Nobody's Fault
    Mmg focusing on 2ki

    my biggest hope is that they can capture the general public’s interest again and become a mainstream act again. be as influential as they were when they were keyaki. at least one hit song (or two ha).

    Sugai to postpone her graduation for at least 2-3 years more

    A big live event
    More members getting outside jobs, especially the ones being sidelined
    gaining more fans

    Aki-p distancing himself from the group (i.e. stops writing songs himself for the group)
    losing fans

    At least 2 former 1st kyz members will graduate
    audition for next generation members
    they will break a record

    That they get other mini programs to better promote themselves
    That the singles being released in a rebooted group will skyrocket in popularity

    That the first generation don't get ghosted or unnoticed.
    (Lately I've realized that the second generation are getting a major push and a lot of attention.)
    Hardly seeing where this new formation system will truly be effective.

    Third generation announcement when Risa, Yuipon, Sugai, Ozeki and Akanen graduate
    A strong willed second generation like Tamura Hono or Seki Yumiko will become captain.
