    Just want to say, that she has did a really good impression on me. Hope that she can be noticed more than her older sister.

    She did incredible as Oogoe Diamond center!! I think she shined the most during the 17th generation debut. I hope she's successful and gets pushed!

    By the way, in a past SHOWROOM Kiara said that her younger sister is “similar to Mukaichi Mion in atmosphere”. Now that we’ve seen her, I’d have to agree! Mion is my AKB oshi, so maybe that’s part of why Airi stands out to me so much!

    She's really cute, and also really different from her sister.
    I remember some long time ago, during the pre-election period, Kii mentioned that if she ranked that year, her sister would join the group. I think i remember that correctly at least. I am surprised to see her sister finally after all this time. I love Kiichan, and Airi is looking like some serious pushed member material.

    Congrats Aichan for the first senbatsu in 60th single, Hisashiburi no Lip Gloss, and among the fastest to get into senbatsu from kenkyuusei/being admitted!:1st:

    Since Aichan is gonna be in Senbatsu, she'll have more people checking her out, so I decided to post some updates here too.
    Feel free to check AKB 17th gen thread for other 17ki members goodness as well!

    -----
    Kiichan wrote a supporting notes for Aichan's first senbatsu! source twitter
    [​IMG]
    Translation:
    Erii-chan, The girl that was so small become center for the first time!:cry:
    Mogi-san! Congratulations for making into the senbatsu!:cry:
    I'm reaally happy.....:cry: <3

    And then, [My] Satou Airi-chan got selected into Senbatsu!! When she got unsure of whether to apply for the audition, I actually said "You'll get right into senbatsu!" to push her,
    (well she's cute so it's obvious but) it turns out my judgment wasn't wrong at all it seems!
    Also she's my little sister but slowly it feels that she's becoming everyone's "Aichan"...somehow it feels a bit lonely. :cry:
    Sorry for being a very "omoi" (closely attached) big sister, but until now and from now on I plan to be the one beside her to see her hard work and growth, after all Airi is the one that understand and support me the most.
    from now on she'll gradually experience a world that I myself haven't experienced yet, she'll certainly be hearing a lot of things, but I'll always be Aichan's first and foremost fan, be next to her, always cheering for her.
    Congratulations for your first senbatsu!:inlove:<3

    ----------
    The moment when Aichan (and others) was informed of being in senbatsu for 60th single (according to others, it was on June 30 during Hanashikai)

    [​IMG]
    Interesting comments from Makino-san about Aichan at around 7.20 : (I kinda paraphrased a lot)
    • Her dance skills are high with prior experience. She's a hard worker, there's no captain in 17th gen but she's basically leading everyone.
    • To be selected into senbatsu before others is actually a challenging position, after this she'll be expected to keep running at the front of her generation, aiming for the even higher position.
    • She cannot stop. But we believe she has the skill and quality to actually overcome those, that's why we decided to include her in senbatsu.

    NemousuTV Season 39 Episode 3
    "How is it actually? 17th gen Image check!!"

    Aichan was on quarantine due to being close contact with Kiichan who had COVID (the recording was a day after POPFES event) during the recording of this episode, so she did separate takes on the challenges.

    There were several challenges (check here for details : link) but the one that she excelled on was the 50m running competition.

    She had experience in Tennis and Cheerleading clubs, so she was a strong contender for no.1 spot.

    Who do you think got the fastest time among 17ki members??

    [​IMG]
    Aichan won with a big margin at 7.6 seconds!:1st:

    Airi was so charming in yesterday’s Ponytail to Shushu and Hisashiburi no Lip Gloss performances!! She shines so much!! She really caught my eye in Ponytail, I’m so happy for her getting these big opportunities.

    She did well on Ponyshu part, certainly got good screentime exposure!
    Not so sure on Hisashiburi no Lipgloss part though, totally behind Erii 90% of the time since the camera is from either below or right front.
    There was only one part where she can get solo screentime for like 0.5s
    Maybe on studios where there's overhead cameras we'll be able to see her better.

    Off-Shots from the CDTV yesterday
