    Now the question is who will receive the management favor as the center? All those member are promising members to lead the next generation of 48/46, the so called All Star Dream Team.

    As if there is even a question. Sakura is getting all the push management can scrape together. Jurina's "old news", AKBs get shafted in these projects these days (without a powerhouse center), Oguri Yui is a Team 8 super-push over everyone else but Sakura's being given the Maeda Atsuko treatment.

    "I want to break AKB48" my butt. Then Okada Nana might actually stand a chance against the management's golden calf...

    Sakura may be given the Maeda Atsuko treatment, the only issue is...Sakura is no Acchan.

    I'm going to go way, way out on a limb here and say that I think it's going to be a struggle for a couple of years between different pushed members (Oguri, Sakura, Mion, Jurina) then Taguchi Manaka is going to be the eventual winner.
    None of the current management picked members seem to have the numbers to be decisive and unless a Sashi-like dark horse comes out I think they'll butt heads for awhile.
    If Okada or Kuranoo ended up being new leaders I also wouldn't be surprised

    And the management would say,they want to add up another member in the lineup,her name is Hirate Yurina.

    that competition ppl keep talking about is pretty nonsense.

    Jurina is pretty clearly the leader at this point barring any surprises. like her or not, that's just plain fact.

    "she doesn't have any definitive lead!!!"
    last year was Sakura's best vote total to date (82k) and Jurina has had a higher vote total than that EVERY YEAR FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS. Jurina's actually up ~10k votes over the last 3 years, while Sakura's been pretty much stuck at the same point (77-82k). Sakura's rise in ranking has been purely due to ppl graduating or not participating.
    they're both anti magnets (as we can all see) but Jurina's easily got more fans on top of that.

    the only real visible (that is to say, no sudden impossible to predict surprises) challenges to Jurina at this point are Yukirin and Sayanee. but Yukirin's made it pretty clear she has little interest in re-entering the election. Sayanee is less clear.

    Mion might be in striking range of a solid move up. but pretty unlikely she's really in the convo with Jurina or Sakura.
    Oguri needs to show she's going to rank higher than #51 before anyone acts like shes even in the convo for AKB ace, 48g ace, anything ace.
    hell, reality check, she's not even the top ranked member of Team 8...

    right now its Jurina. then Sakura.
    Ogino, if last year's results prove to be legit (yes, people still question how a girl and group thats supposedly so popular can't actually sell).

    and on the outside, Sayanee.
    if she does come back, she's easily the biggest rival to Jurina at this point.

    i think Hirate Yurina just outshined all her senpai's one of the reason she is no longer there anymore lol she just different...she's like an idol with a rockstar image. Her auta and charisma is no joke... t

    ^You're raising the bar too much for her.
    If you listen to her on her radio show she just sounds like a normal girl. The -Zaka girls seem to get a lot of image consulting, granted she wears their image better than a lot of the other girls can.

  • Comment Link Jsprite Wednesday, 14 March 2018 03:28 posted by Jsprite

    Hirate Yurina sounds like a normal girl in her radio show like any other girl her age would sound. Her performing on stage or MV, is far above what any other normal girl or few idols for that matter can do. Fans don't raise the bar, idols themselves do.

    ^I dunno, maybe. I'd have to see another girl as center to compare.
    As it is, one could argue "you look at her the most because they show her the most." They'd rather cancel their concerts than give the center position away so we haven't had the opportunity to see others try and fail.

    I'm not hating at her but they tell her to not smile for the first few singles just so it's a big deal when she finally does for their 5th. It's also really weird how they never bother talking to her during their show, or cut out the parts where they do. I'm not saying she's not a great performer, but what you see is the sum of many people's calculations.
