    Regards to YuiYui, please add tons of gravure & interview magazines, some special stages, AKBINGO staffs' sweetheart and Runner's High to the things which she got.

    That's all...

    Due to management policy nowaday, HS sales means everythings, while skills is just a factor which management staffs seem to do not care much. However, I have faith in this 8's Yokoyama Yui, eventhough it seems to have no way, she will create her own way, I belive.

    That true maybe Yokochan is talented and best at dancing...but what about Talking?what about her variety skill?You know,if u best at dancing always become regular at AKBIngo means nothing.Someone that will only sit and cant give a proper respons to MC will Never used.Muramoto cant ask yokoyui dancing every episode to use her.
    Naru almost become reguler right now..but in there she only acting cute with her Neko cosplay and complaining about other else that acting cute (with crying).
    Yuiyui momentum right know is not acquired suddenly,she already doing lot of variety like antadare,antaroke,and antaroke2 and she nailed it....compare with naru and yokoyui when at that show,,She got more chance because she is from tokyo,but remember she is not even front row in team8 at beginning and not choosen as 10 senbatsu...She used by staff of that show because they believe yuiyui can give them good footage.
    Team 8 is different,in every show if the line up is messed,the show will become awful,so they cant forcing anyone to do that. its not only because of push.Yokoyui should learn more about variety,and give her best at every chance that she have to appealing more staff.

    I think I understand and agree with @chiuchimu that Yokochan doesn't need to appear on AKBINGO because it's useless for her due to reasons, but she need other path to let her potential be fully utilized. And...I also partially agree with @Aka that Yokochan's time(s) will come, but it isn't AKBINGO, I guess.

    Right. Let's forget that Yuiyui was almost a nobody that reached where she is right now because she could actually become popular before she was given any center position, any AKB senbatsu position, any solo gravure, any special stage, any AKBINGO! relevance, any Team 8 10-nin senbatsu position...

    Yuiyui isn't where she is right now because someone made her like that, it's because she earned it!

    It's up to Yokochan to do the same.

    That. But don't forget that AKB is also about popularity, either be it via handshakes or the Sousenkyo. How many talented girls in the group's history were sidelined? AKB isn't all about popularity, one girl can have a future career even she never reached her full potential in AKB, but to be on the spotlight here you need more than just skills...

    ... and that's why Qui-Gon died.

    I see nothing wrong with that.

    That might be true for the first time, but during the fashion episode they were clearly trying to force that on her with their editing... skills. She didn't give a shit.

    There's no Yokochan's solo vocal in any performance, but she did a capella in her SHOWROOM serveral times.

    It's make me really want to see her vocal in serious mode.

    @Aka, let management do what they want as much as they want, and let us wait and see the outcomes. I don't know how people in other countries think about AKB nowaday, but in my country, it's totally NOT GOOD. It isn't only about Yokochan or Team 8, it's about whole AKB. And...I think further discussing about us might be useless, tbh.

    Yes, I am. But, actually, I mean people in my country think that the things which AKB management staffs do nowaday are really NOT GOOD. But, most of them still love AKB members, while some of them already moved to 46.

    @chiuchimu...san, I think I polluted Yokochan's thread, I'm so bad. So, I decide to re-arrange my mind and reply your comment again to make things more positive.

    AKB management policy nowaday, it looks like they don't do something like "put right girl on the right job at the right time", but they do something like "put pushed girl on (almost) all jobs at (almost) all times". Additionally, they decide who should be pushed by HS sales, not only, but it is the 1st priority factor which they care. So, Yokochan seems to have no way to rise under today policy, because she need right place and right time which quite specific, and management seem to have no intension to do it because Yokochan's HS sales isn't well. Tbh, I'm ok with Yokochan doesn't appear much in AKBINGO, Anta Roke Roke, or any variety stuffs (despite she is good at them due to her chara which really natural imo, but...forget it !) because Aomori is really far from Tokyo. Only one single thing that I don't understand why management don't do it yet is "Dance Unit" despite many fans might want to see, I think. But, things will change, I belive. Also, Yokochan is just almost 16 years old, 1st year of highschool, so she still has almost plenty of time to drop and rise, at least 2 - 3 years. Let's have faith in her. :)

    ^I agree with what you said. In particular I think she is good on Variety if they give her the mic. People should watch Yokochan's Shoujiki Shougi - it was fun and very entertaining.

    Yokochan is not thought of as in the cute category, but I think that can change. I think she can be a show stopper with a make-over. I think that is her best bet.

    No need to hurry ! ;)

    Actually, I don't care much about Yokochan's HS sales, but it's better if her tickets were sold nice. Additionally, it reminds me something which made me be curious about HS sales for a while, *0/12 doesn't mean no ticket was sold, but it means some tickets were sold, just there's no fulled slot, right ? So, in pragmatic, the tickets which were sold in *0/12 might be more than *1/*4 and possibly near 10/12 or even 12/12 if each slot was filled 70-80%. Is my understanding right ? o_O

    Yeah. And these results that I've just posted are resales. So, you don't actually see in brackets whenever a slot is about to be sold out (though they were still at zero during the normal sales, so don't expect something close to 12/12). The more slots you have the more they expect someone to sell. But it's harder to sell out when you have more slots since it's more distributed. And album sales usually work in a different way from theatre handshakes: for theatre handshakes you see more people applying for other girls while in album handshakes the sales are usually more concentrated in the most popular ones (maybe because they know for sure they will have their 2-shot with them, while in the theatre handshakes you need to win a lottery).

    They have other information beside handshakes: goods sales, SR views, what people talk about in the Internet. Oh! And, of course, they know the real numbers of the handshakes.

    But no one is selling except three girls. Everyone else is Zero. How does this work? Is this one hand shake event? Was All those girls there at the event? If they can find time for Yokochan to be at HS events then why can't they find time for her on TV?

    Those numbers are for the 8th album. It had a lot of normal rounds, extra rounds, resale rounds, extra res... whatever. But, in the end, those were the final resale sales. It's for more than one handshake event though you don't see it there.

    Like was said before, being at zero doesn't mean you haven't sold a thing. By the contrary. In fact, that Yuiyui 12/24 was close to 24/24. She had always been 24/24 in all rounds but that one. It takes only one person not to pay for the entire slot to be open again.

    The numbers we see were never made for us to know how popular they are but what is available for us to buy.

    And yes, they're all there. Everyone has slots. But some will have like 50 people while others hundreds.
