    And how many AKB48 members want to join Keyakizaka46? What's the big problem that make 48G hold emergency convention to discuss the group's future after their 2018 General Election?

    Most likely because they knew Sakamichi series appeals more to public these days with more female fans too. Sakamichi girls don't have to do gravure or act excessively kawaii and have cooler concepts. Like I said before, 48G should make subunits for the talented girls where they can try different concepts that is actually in trend now.

    it's sad. Like the 146 ones just look for glory and facility and don't care anymore about AKB48. Please just leave and let the other girls take your place. It's not with tought like that, that akb is going to shine again. (sorry for the bad english)

    And I totally agree with Tuberose

    @Tuberose They have made subunits in the past and its a shame cause many of them were great (DiVA was great and its a shame they didn't get that big; Not Yet were good too). I feel like at this point, the group has gotten way too big that it would be hard to manage all these subunits and so they did away with them completely. Though, there is still hope considering 48G is starting to drop in popularity and they might want to do something that will spice things up a bit... but they're probably just going to do another reshuffle (since we havent had one in a while)

    AKB48 isn't AKB48 anymore!!! It was a "warming pad" for held in place so Jurina could rule 2 Groups! - Seriously, since Yuko left AKB has NOT Promoted anyone from within (except Paruru as a temp measure) and went to sleep. AKB has been cannibalized as a launch pad for EVERY OTHER Sister group and leaves Nothing for just AKB Tokyo Idols.

    The guys want the younger Idols (NGT, HKT, & STU) & the Girls want NGZK46 for sisterhood & girly traditional Idol glamour...the Dansos like Keyakizaki. Jurina now rules BOTH SKE (which thinks it's better than AKB) & AKB48 (where she's always been Daddys Princess)- The only way to Escape AKB & Jurina is NGZK46!!!

    SKE has wanted to Beat AKB for years - They've done it. Close the doors & send the Idols home or Start Over!

    After watching the 1st episode of produce48, akb systems needs to focus more or vocal and dance training. Gosh, even girls who have debuted for years can't even do the basics. The second hand embarrassment is real.

    Lol and of course there would be a way to bring Jurina into this and hate on her. You all need to start getting creative smh

    @Tea yeah I know. What I meant is a subunit with a totally different concept. DIVA was okay but notyet and no3b and French Kiss etc were more like a branch of 48G.

    @Pilot: calm your titties

    I agree with the group being too big to handle anymore. I’ve honestly gave up on 48G and moved on to kanji keyaki that’s way beyond perfect for me. I support and love each member in that group with no hate or indifference to anyone. I don’t want any new members joining and absolutely dread these new auditions because that will just lead the group into the path of AKB. I wish they could just hold off the auditions for a few more years at least. I mean in the past Nogi held off for some time too; their almost 7 years in with only 3 generations. The girls are getting so close with each other too.

    Yes, please ban the love ban rule.

    @Rika Come on, it is impossible, though I personally agree with you.

    The love ban rule is almost impossible to remove at this point. Idol in general are not allowed to date in Japan-Sokor-China, why, because their fans are mostly the opposite gender fantasizing them as their lover. And since idol sell the "dream lover" image, being in a relationship will ruin their career. Unless they have a stable career and strong fanbase, I think members like Sasshi Yukirin and Sayanee won't be affected anymore.
