    I love it too but she's a bit young to follow in the Megutan footsteps!

    @Naaruru - When I saw the first photo of her I thought Abe Maria too, especially her smile

    Megutan's first full stage was today's Team K RESET performance. It was Goto Moe's Seitansei so the camera is on her mostly, but they seem to have made an effort to get some shots of Megutan in too.

    I uploaded her unit, the only non-moekyun focussed part with Megu ^^



    Regarding her debut being barely 2 months ago she did pretty well. Kiseki is arguably one of the more difficult K6 units to perform.
    It's interesting to see both current KKS being decent in their dancing and expressions already while some Drafties who underwent some power training still suck at both.

    15th gen were revealed over a year ago so the 15.2 kks have had probably 15-18 months of training to get them to this level so it shouldn't be a surprise that they're pretty decent.

    The tactic of keeping kks in reserve seems to be paying off though as the 15.1 and the 15.2 kks have hit the ground running in contrast to some of the 15.0 kks like Kiichan and Seichan who were very raw when they started. The whole draft system was a complete mess and needs a serious rethink before trying it again.

    That was a nice performance, it's like Haruppi being supported by the Abe sisters :)

    I think it also helps that the 15.2 kks are older - 15 or 16 compared to the drafties 12 or 13, which for kids is a pretty big difference. I prefer the kks system to the draft system which was a bit of a shambles, but I still like the K drafties anyway. :p Maybe with the kks reserves they are trying to avoid having kks who simply don't make it and disappear - you wonder how many others they also had in reserve that we have never seen.

    It was a nice debut for Megutan though, it looked pretty good to me :) I wonder what team she'll end up in.

    Well Maki is only 12y old herself and she does great performance-wise. Sure she still does several mistakes and her lipsyncing is pretty awful but overall her level of performance is impressive for her age. (She gets the team A center under position for a reason :p )
    Unlike Kiara who's still one of the worst performers in AKB even after one year since her debut (130609).

    Hey, I thought we were talking about current KKS! :p Good on Maki though. I don't tend to watch A much and I seem to have missed her, so I'll have to fix that.

    I think I'll have to conclude that it can't be explained simply and different girls are just different, regardless of age or experience! Sorry for derailing Megutan's thread a bit.

    Megutan was great in the LOD! She got herself a spot on my radar that's for sure.

    And I agree that the KKS system was much better than the Draft one because it really helped members of the same generation to bond while having their own stage etc.

    After seeing her in videos, I noticed that Megutan looks like Kojima Ruriko (the Tv talent, Tomochin's friend, they're together in Tomo's show Itano Paisen!!). I still didn't watch any stage with Megutan, but I'll probably do that soon, also for Miyabi.

    I saw that Megutan is a Paruru fan, she cried when they did Mc together lol. It's so cute!



    A funny moment when Megutan asked a question to Paruru... [hehe]

    7/14 Team A kouen:

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=naJFeupS8f0

    Nana: Since this is Meguchan's first appearance in the Team A show, we shall ask her some questions.

    Manami: We actually both 15th gen members, but I haven't heard too much about her. What did you do when we had practice?

    Megu: I had lessons in rhytmic gynmastics. It's like ballet, only that you do more powerful movements

    Natsuki: Did you do ribbon practice as well?

    Megu: Yes.

    Sakura: If you could take only 1 thing to a deserted island, what would you bring?

    Megu: I would take my home along with me

    Natsuki: What? What?

    Megu: At home, you have everything, right.

    Nana: Do you have a question for Megu?

    Paruru: Are you feeling well?

    (audience laughs)

    Megu: Yes, I am.

    Nana: Is that all?

    Paruru: Haai.

    Nana: Yes, that's all. (laughs)

    Nana: Ok then Nattsun?

    Natsuki: Well then, shall we ask for her oshimen?

    Natsuki: In AKB, maybe even since before you joined, who is the AKB member you like the most?

    Megu: My oshimen is Shimazaki-san

    (audience: OOOh!)

    Natsuki: Well then, how did you feel when she asked you if you were feeling well?

    Natsuki: What was it like?

    Megu: (starts crying)

    Natsuki: Eh? She's crying! I'm so sorry, what should I do?!!

    Paruru: (hits Natsuki while laughing)

    Nana: You made her cry!

    Nana: The General Manager is looking at you!

    Natsuki: For real??!!!

    Natsuki: General Manager!

    Takamina: Oi, who made her cry? Natssun. Natssun, you're banned!

    Natsuki: Oh my God!

    Natsuki: What should I do?!!

    Megu: It's because Shimazaki-san was standing next to me

    Manami: so cute~

    Natsuki: I'm so glad that I was not the cause of your tears!

    Manami: Those are tears of happyness

    Megu: It's pretty bad.

    Natsuki: So, you actually like her that much huh?

    Nana: (laughs hard)

    Nana: The way you're asking that!

    Natsuki: So it is like that. I see. Well, if you have something to say to Paruru-san, now is your chance

    Nana: She might cry even more!

    Natsuki: Cry as much as you like! This is a great opportunity!

    Megu: How come your skin is that white?

    Paruru: That's because I don't leave my house

    Natsuki: Nice advice.

    Natsuki: That's the best way.

    Nana: But since you have the chance to appear with the member you loved since so long ago,
    it would be great if you used this opportunity to get to know each other better.

    Nana: Are you ok?

    Nana: Since we just heard who her oshimen is, how about we ask which senpai she is looking up to? It might be Paruru.

    Natsuki: It might be someone different.

    Megu: Yokoyama-san.

    Manami: Because of what aspect of hers?

    Megu: She is totally responsible and reliable, and serious. I want to become such a person.

    Natsuki: So that means, Paruru is not responsible and reliable, huh?

    Natsuki: It's not like that? So you love everything about Paruru, but you admire Yokoyama-san's way of living

    Paruru: (laughs)

    Nana: So she likes the contents

    Megu: Shimazakisan's skin is so white.

    Nana: So that's it!

    Megu: Shimazaki-san's skin is so white, and so beautiful, that's so cute, isn't it. She is totally my oshimen.

    Natsuki: And because Yokoyama-san s so reliable and responsible...

    Megu: In the future, I want to become a person like Yokoyama-san

    Paruru: And you will.

    Nana: 'And you will.' So uncommitting

    Natsuki: Well then, if you absolutely had to choose between Yokoyama-san and Paruru-san...

    Nana: But Paruru-san is here, you know!

    Natsuki: It's what we would like to hear, isn't it

    Paru: She might cry again!

    Nana: Yeah, don't make her cry.

    Natsuki: So who will it be?

    Nana: That question is off the table.

    Natsuki: Ok.

    Manami: I have only thought of a safe question, what is your favorite food?

    Nana: That's super save (lol)

    Megu: Sukiyaki

    Nana: Well then, why don't you and Chiyori and Paruru-san go out to eat Sukiyaki together?

    Paru: Waaai.

    Natsuki: She will cry again, then

    Nana: Don't make her cry!

    Natsuki: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

    Manami wraps up the MC
