    Harutan was in Haruppi's position on the September 4 stage (130904). I was quite surprised to see her centering Team H. Previously when both Haruppi and Meru were unavailable they had Aoitan as center and put someone else in Aoitan's position, which means that Aoitan knows all the dance moves of position 0. I think the fact that Aoitan was there performing on this day and they still chose to have Harutan centering is quite significant, or isn't it?

    I'm a little concerned about my Harutan...
    Since the shuffle she has only posted a short and generic post about the oita concert.
    I hope she wasn't too much effected by this event :(


    I'm so eager to see again your socks at your ankles for the huge amount of energy that you always put in your performance! :D

    Yeah she's the only one who hasn't posted since the announcement... We only have this.

    But it could easily be taken before the start.
    I'm just keeping it on "She doesn't know how to put the entirety of it into words yet." for now.

    The other day Harutan wrote a HUGE G+ post (like 350 lines long) with her impression of the shuffle.
    I've tried a translation but I give up... Too much japanese too handle for my level :)

    To summarize because it has some very nice but sad passages... she has taken the missed promotion quite hardly, apparently she tried hard to stay strong on stage but completely breaks down afterwards... :cry:
    Apparently Sasshi and Rabutan come to the rescue (she has nice words for both of them) and then even Ozaki-san have to talked to her in order to calm her down.
    But now she seems quite determined to lead the new KKS! [party]

    Honestly I think this is the best position for her. She seems to be a management "favorite" (i guess since she centered Hakata Legend as Haruppi's under multiple times) so honestly instead of been promoted just to be a back row girls in H or KIV, I think that Haruka could have a nice shot to prove herself again in the new KKS and be a front girl in T! [party]

    That's what I thought initially as well. The girl seemed to be a management's favorite a lot more than a bunch of promoted members, so the only explanation is that they're saving her up for T. Although I'm a bit scared of what might happen until T's formation, if they'll change their mind, we all know how slow this management can be with taking big steps, who knows what'll happen in that time? I hope she she doesn't lose her momentum while waiting, and end up backrow of T anyway.

    I don't want to rub salt in any fresh wounds here, but when i was looking at the HS results for akb's 5th album i noticed something. All the girls that didn't get promoted got 5 slots and sold out none of them. They and Mina were the only non 3rd gens to have that result. source

    Yeah it's all part of the same pattern, that's probably the most visible sign of why they stayed KKS.

    They probably let her stay in KKS for more chances of exposure and thus more chances to convince people to reach out and buy a HS ticket of hers.

    Now that I've taken a look at her post, she sounds really sad in some parts. Anlong the lines of "If it wasn't for Sasshi & Lovetan, I wouldn't be here" ect.
    On the other side she was her old self in the performance yesterday.

    She'll just have to place it, no other choice.

    You are probably right, since the whole HS selling slot thing (out of the top pushed girls) it's a mystery to me, basically I don't waste my time on it... I guess I'm not Japanese enough to understand the logic and the pattern behind why some girl sold out a slot and another not...

    Also I'm quite confident that Harutan will almost never enter a single senbatsu or be a center in anything major HKT-wise. (Obviously I hope for her that I'm wrong here).
    My only hope is that she will have retain the little consideration by management that seems to have now and get some nice position in the new KKS stage and eventually in T so I can enjoy her watching the LODs.

    No need to despair! she has a nice position in Pajama Drive right? She centers a unit, that's something a lot of girls will never get to at all. And look at what has happened to Riinu, she was always in the back, left out of everything. But in a space of two months, she centered zannen, made senbatsu, and got a solo at HKT's first tour.

    Never really paid attention to her sales, but if you look at it that way, it would make more sense that they didn't promote her cause she's not popular enough and not because they're saving her for something bigger. I guess I thought someone getting an overall center position under meant something in their books. It's a shame cause she's a really good performer.

    lol I'm not despairing :D
    That's exactly my point she has a nice little spot right now, if she was promoted to H o KIV she will be shifted the back row probably, so I'm ok that she is still a KKS now and I hope that eventually in T she will keep her current position :)


    it's nice we put more post here in one morning than in one year [hehe]

    I'm confident that Harutan's time will come. She's an interesting member, even if not many people know her. She's one of the few people who filled in for Haruppi as Team H center in the theater. Other than her I think only Meru and Aoitan have done it. This shows that management trusts her skills.

    Among the 2nd gen who are still KKS, Harutan and Raira have the best perspectives right now. She just needs to hang in there a little longer and to not be overshadowed by the 3rd gen. It will be interesting to see how this develops. But unfortunately only 11 KKS are left now, so I think they won't be able to keep their own stage for some time.

    it's obvious that she would be sad about not being promoted, especially after being left out for the second time now. but at the same time I think that her position only improved even more, now that even less experienced members are left as KKS together with the 3rd generation, leaving her in that kind of mentor position. I think it can be a strong position to be in, albeit giving her less "outside exposure" as being in a team. hopefully she will see it as some kind of chance as well, instead of some kind of feeling of inadequacy.
    on the other hand, once the change finally goes into effect, there probably won't be a KKS stage left, right? hopefully it won't end like with AKB's 15th generation, where there were relatively long gaps between performances for those girls, since they didn't have their own regular performances..
