I read the "History" part in Nappi's wiki48 page and it says that in April 2014, Nappi "auditioned for AKB48 Team 8 in Hokkaido, but failed the auditions in the final round." oh wow that's really surprising! To think that Nappi could have debuted 2 years earlier, as a part of AKB. if she did, I would have noticed her earlier probably since I follow AKB more than HKT, but who knows what kind of career she would have had... I wonder how come she didn't pass, because she's really cute, but maybe there was too much competition. For information, the Team 8 representative for Hokkaido is Sakaguchi Nagisa and she's one of the members who was in the spotlight when Team 8 debuted so I can see why management prefer her than Nappi, but thankfully Nappi debuted as HKT! The fact that she tried to get in 48G again after trying with Team 8 makes me think that she really wanted to be in a 48G group, I'm glad she did I should start posting Nappi's social media updates here because she takes the cutest photos, and I hope that more people can start following her! Last week on 17th September, Nappi posted some very pretty photos along with 4 emoticons to represent her 4 expressions (although the first emoticon is "sad" but she doesn't look sad in the photo XD) she's so pretty! CUTE!!!
