    I've already made a post about what would've been my ideal Nogi's 4th gen and which members of sister groups I would've picked. You can look at it here.

    http://stage48.net/forum/index.php?threads/what-if-you-were-nogizakas-management.23366/

    Due to some members, 4th gen in general seems so childish, average, more approachable, and made to be appreciated mostly by lewd old otaku who are looking for these kind of idols, the exact opposite of the image the senpai built of classy, elegant, mature, talented in various things, above average and funny girls with defined personalities.

    I quote here a comment that user @mayuri91 made a year ago which I can totally relate cause these are kinda my same feelings.

    I thought for 3 nin no Principal 4th Gen had put every member in at least once. If not, that's troubling sign for Yuna. She's following in YAC's path. I wonder if the poor showing has limited what management has given her. I thought her part in Saru ni Au wasn't the greatest especially given that she was primarily the sleepy type. And on Nogi Skits she doesn't get too much to do in the Superhero Yuri skit.

    Maybe she'll break out in the future. Certainly with the gaps being open by senpai graduations she may fit into one.

    I see 4th Gen in a different light. The problems with 2nd and 3rd Gen is that Nogi 1st Gen is pretty legendary and they pretty much dominated Nogi lineups for the past 8 years. 2nd Gen had the unfortunate problem of having to compete directly with 1st Gen in the early years. For 3rd Gen, they joined at the height of 1st Gens power and only have begun to be a force as graduations have allowed them to assume more prominent roles. 3rd Gen is still underwhelming if you compare where they are in their fourth year as compared to 1st Gen.

    4th Gen has it better as they are not in the shadows of 1st Gen. They can define a new Nogizaka that isn't tied to the Nishino, Maiyan, Nanamin era. They will contribute more to Nogi's future direction as there are more opportunities available.

    Currently I think that all 3rd and 4th Gens are Nogi's future so it is better to embrace them than to find fault with them.

    She has one skit when she's the leader (that cheerleading skits). Imo, for Nogi skits, their confidence also important since staff often ask what roles they want to play. And i think Yuna biggest problem is her low self-confidence.

    Yuna is like a new version of Higuchi if I have to compare her to another member, that just seems 10x more bland. But Higuchi bloomed with a sexier but gentle aura, I really don't see Yuna being this way in a few years but who knows.

    And yeah, I agree that 4th gen is the one who is going to bring a totally different Nogizaka from the one built by their senpai, 3rd gen's pillars somehow are following that pattern Nogi's pillars released more: beutiful elegant and funny girls, ethereal and glamorous. While 4th gen doesn't seem Nogizaka at all, or at least not the Nogizaka that started to establish its well known identity. If I exclude maybe 1-2 members, it seems more a gen from a 48 group, if you know what I mean... to feel that Nogizaka in a few years is gonna change drastically makes and represented me sad, to think we're not gonna have anymore something like this, a senbatsu full of ethereal beauties, everyone with its own distinguishing features and that different, mature and pure vibe... that's so sad.

    It makes me sad I can't connect with 4th gen they way I would've liked, yeah there are some members that I like but it's nothing compared to the love I felt for most of 1st gen members..., and I can connect much more with 3rd gen in general.
