    I'm never able to catch SR live but I watched the whole ChuriJuri one last night. 2 hours of just cooking, eating, and small talk mostly, but it's somehow enjoyable to me watching idols do normal stuff like normal people. I prefer SR shows like that over just talking directly to fans the whole time (of course I'm biased because I usually can't be there live to talk, or type decent Japanese without a translator anyway :^^;:).

    In case anyone hasn't seen it:

    Are you talking about the one I posted or did I just make it sound like there was another one? I meant I missed it live so I watched it last night.

    I don't know when I'll have the time to translate the birthday stuff so in the meantime make sure to look at this wonderful set of photos:
    Click here, big link

    The set is called "Mousou Kanojo" so it is supposed to be a story of sorts, hence the text between the pictures. I won't bother with a translation of this, since I don't know how to save these pictures, but basically it is about a boy who takes care of a lost bird, and hears a woman searching for that bird and gives it back to her. He later sees her while walking and she asks him if he would like to drink tea since she wasn't able to properly repay him. I think it's easy to infer from the photos when given this context.

    Check out her anchor leg in the relay in the latest Zero Position Sports Competition. She took a small lead and made it a big one, resulting in the overall victory for the 2nd generation.

    What I don't get is the fake "who is going to win" when they announce the final results. With 6 teams, they started with 5th place. When they got to the announcement of 1st place, there were only two teams left: one that had finished close to the bottom of every event and one that had won or finished close to the top on every event, including the final relay that was worth 100 points (the usual is 50). And yet here they were, both teams "praying" for a good result. So fake!

    The dream she accomplished this year was: Being able to organize and plan a concert which could be enjoyed by everyone, which she had wanted to do for a long time.

    The Kouhaku voting does not seem like it is accessible to foreigners, which while annoying for us might prove to be a good thing for Churi. I get the feeling her popularity amongst foreign fans is rather low when compared to some of her competitors, although the same could be said for most of SKE. We'll see what the one vote per device rule makes, if that rule is properly followed and implemented.

    I want to rant here about something else though. I've never really gotten over how AKS management (or whoever was in charge of it) changed the rules for the Love Factory drama voting. I didn't particularly care for that series or for Churi's episode, but she expressed a desire to rank highly in that vote as she thought it would lead to future acting jobs. The original method of voting was through Twitter/Facebook via the program's page, and Churi ended up first due to diligent voting by the fans. I'm not sure whether script bots' votes were allowed but I remember checking and the number of hyu-hyus was reasonable.

    But the rules were suddenly changed and it was all scrapped, which upset the fans and Churi, as they thought they had done enough to make her win. While I'm on this topic, this also reminds me of how Team KII were stripped of the undokai title this year due to the penalty kick system allowing a team with 80-something points to participate in penalty kicks that could beat a team which had proven over the course of the event that they were the best. This isn't a very fair comparison as I believe it was decided beforehand but it rankled me. The members were all quite proud of doing well during all the events and especially the relay, which the groups put some importance on it seems.

    Looking back at 2016 these petty complaints are all I really have, 2016 was a really excellent year for her and I hope that unlike the Love Factory drama she'll be able to get in with this vote.

    I was under the impression that the voting will always be from the specific voting page (like previously when they did Adrenaline Night). The twitter thing is probably only to show your support and never intended for voting. I believe you can only vote once per day (they probably checked the IP address), thus although people can still cheat, the impact is probably not great.
    As for the twitter thing, Churi and Jonishi Kei fans definitely cheated, blatantly I must say. You see, Paruru get 16k tweets, Mayuyu 12k tweets and I think both of their fans are also cheating because the next one is Jurina with only 2k tweets. The gap is simply too big. Yes, both are more famous than Jurina, just not 6 to 8 times more. But you know how much Churi and Jonishi Kei tweets for Love Factory? 150K each! I know her fans wants to show their support for her, but doing it like that just make Churi looks bad.

    It appears I was misinformed and should have just looked up the site instead of being lazy. The hyu-hyus are there to support a favourite scene and basically spread the word of the show. However it was believed that it was a method of voting since there had not been word of one like Adrenaline Night. What's important is that the fans saw it that way and voted like that, I suppose since these kinds of things always change. So I suspect that since the fans organized in such a way that the idol started believing that too and I took it as being official in that sense since she encouraged it.

    I just looked it up and yes, that is quite the number. I remember checking in the days beforehand and the numbers were in the 4-8k range while I was looking. So I assume someone simply made some accounts to spam them near the end. However there was no such rule as to how many votes you could do if you thought that was the way to vote, so I wouldn't call it cheating, and I wouldn't say it makes the idol look bad since nothing came out of it.

    Thanks for helping to clear this up. It would be interesting to see a full-fledged bot war between fans to cause some chaos in rankings though.
