    So good to see her! I'm a bit curious though.
    When it comes to idols they are chosen by Magazines as models from the groups and then pushed on events like this, but who is behind Shida? Does she has an agency or something like that?

    More photos of Manaka at Girls Award, from Modelpress. For example:

    @Dill -- The Arabic logo on her belt suggests to me that this appearance, at least, is thanks to the Qalb brand. Google Translate tells me that's what the Arabic says (it apparently means "heart"). I'd be surprised if she didn't have an agency, but I don't know the business, so I'm not sure.

    Why is the stage so dark? Can't even see the clothes, what colour it is, and the texture of the fabric

    You don’t have to be an idol or model to appear at this kind of event. Techi for example, appeared together with other cast members to promote her movie.
    I’m pretty sure that she has an agency, I also think that nicole fujita played a role in getting her there.

    Manaka being back gives me hope that neru might come back as well.
    Everyone is looking forward to photos of Mona with keya members, I wonder if they’re allowed to post them.

    No, but my guess is that our girls, while they are pretty and we love them, wouldn't be there if it wasn't for Keyaki (or Nogi or Hinata or 48) connections, which lead some of them to also be part of magazines model-teams or, like Techi, be part of movies.
    Like Ukifune wrote up here, Shida may be part of this because of Qalb; I was just curious because we usually know pretty soon under which agency graduated members work.

    I find the look pretty great for Shida, even if she go on a less aggressive fashion route usually.

    ^ I'm assuming she's wearing hair extensions.

    Based on some tweets, it looks like her own hair! :D
