The new face of Keyakizaka46? Plus more animated gifs: Spoiler: two animated gifs Saturday's handshake event seems to have attracted a big crowd, particularly to Monta/Ozeki's lane. (Not previously known for big crowds.) Could the M-Station triumph and the handshake event put Ambivalent over the million-sales mark? It was 25K short as of last week. @Jsprite -- I hope Monta is the centre for the 8th single. But I still think they may go with Pon on Kouhaku, if only just to see what they've got. I believe she has done Garasu before. This is the first time I have seen anywhere near this level of enthusiasm for Monta. People may finally be waking up, lol. Photobook? You bet. Pon might have been the natural next candidate, based on previous form, but this may change things. I know management loves Monta. More than the fans have, up to now. EDIT: Plus art from qbq8x on Twittter: And there's a story on Yahoo Japan News saying what great reaction Mon is getting to her performance, with its sharp dancing, and quickly talking about her background: age 21, known for reaction expressions, great cook.
