    Pigmy.. Pigmy.. Pigmy UP !!!
    It's really hard to accept ... The position of Miyawaki Sakura continues to fall. I am happy that she is still in Top 12 but still continues to drop further down. Soon or later she will leave Top 12.

    Even a japanese dwarf idol with a plump talent is more favored by Voter / MNet than Sakura.

    Maybe Korean voter prefer to watch girlband whose personnel are midget, immature, fake innocent shy instead of an honest open one like Sakura.
    People so easy to be deceived by just looking at short events scenario with cheap scheming.

    Nako is Sakura's side kick since long time a go in HKT48. Sakura love her a lot like her beloved sister.

    Both of them is my Oshi and l always put them in my top 12 list since the beginning of PD48.
    I never worried about Nako position in top 12 (not like Miyu, Sakura, Juri, Miru or Mako) since its already planned from the beginning. But not this fast.. not #2 and not sacrificing any other AKB48 trainees.

    One of the reason why i watch this program is because there is AKB48 & friends team in PD48 (including Yabuki Nako).. from the beginning we always support and pray that Sakura, Nako, Mako, Juri and Jurina will reach top 12. But not this way.. direct to #2 ??? its obviously Mnet push Nako up with cheap dramas and scenario. Its not worked for audience with high awareness (including me). Nako deserve top 12 but not #2 or top center.
    In my opinion it will be not good for PD48 group with short center (i would not say midget). She's 17 years old with less than 150 cm height and will not grow anymore (please dont compare it with Yoona, Seol Hyun, tzu Yu, etc)

    Since 2013 when she joined HKT48. Not many voter want to choose Yabuko Nako and she didn't get any rank at AKB48 in her first 3 years in HKT48 (2013,2014 and 2015), unlike the flying Star Sakura that immediately got ranked in Senbatsu when it first joined and the rankings continued to rise from year to year.

    In 2017 Nako is only ranked 37th in senbatsu while Sakura is ranked # 4.
    Sakura has been 3 years as Top Kami 7 on senbatsu and She is the best candidate for # 1 winner in Senbatsu 2018. But unfortunately she was sabotaged by her seniors and closest friends in HKT48 which she trusted deeply.
    It happened in last senbatsu with some short scheming and cheap drama in the handshake session, AKB48 and formerly Senbatsu Champion and HKT48 captain (Sashihara Rino ) encourages fans to vote for Yabuki Nako rather than to help HKT48 Sakura champion to win #1.
    Although that is not enough to make Nako reach Kami 7 (top 7), it has helped a lot to promote Yabuki Nako up and reduce many votes for Sakura.
    It caused Sakura's position dropped down to rank # 3 due to less votes from HKT48 fans voter.
    They hold Sakura because they know that high possiblity Sakura will leave AKB48 if she has reached # 1 (but surprisingly Sakura decided not to join senbatsu anymore next year even though this year she only reached # 3. It seems Sakura wants to focus on PD48, but AKB48 and PD48 already prepared Nako in Top 12 since long time a go.. Not Sakura.

    So.. unfortunately, from the beginning, it seems that Mnet only made Sakura as a teaser to attract world attention and increase the broadcast rating. At the end Mnet and Korean Voter will only get Sakura's side kick (Yabuki Nako).
    Refer back to the original plan..Produce Top12 will have Yabuki Nako for sure. Can't deny that AKB48 will release her easily, but maybe not Sakura since they love her too much.

    Poor Sakura.. She is too plain and straightforward so that she always be the target of hater and slander.

    Now Sakura's position was increasingly pressed. PD48 not only removed a lot of her screen time, even all edits made by MNet and team sabotages increasingly cornered Sakura and her team.
    Without the support of Sakura Fans in Korea, she won't be helped anymore and will continue to drop.
    Please support Sakura by choosing her if you really wants Sakura to have career in Korea (and if AKB48/HKT48 and Japan fans will let her go to Korea).
    We know that Korean voter has right to grab Sakura from Japan but if they are not willing to vote Sakura, then better immediately send her back.
    Please dont complicate her and don't hold her any longer.

    It means that Miyawaki Sakura is more desired by the world than Korean voter.
    If Sakura is eliminated then we don't care about this Produce 48 anymore.
    The reason we watch PD48 is because of "Her". The heart of Asia

    @Soo Hyun....WOW. People thought I was "long winded"

    You're totally wrong about Sakura. Sakura is a 'Golden Ticket' (not a Golden Voice) meaning she's "Mutable"- She can sell almost any product, created VIRAL buzz doing the most average things, Girls adore her & Guys want to date her, even the adults find her charming. She dances well & will ratings GOLD on Variety shows- MNET Loves her! They will find ways to make Korea Love her too. She's not going to 'fade away'. The same reason Koreans love the Japanese gals of TWICE, they will love Sakura.

    Miyu is a 'Golden Performer'- She, despite almost no airtime captured peoples hearts. She can be 'Power Vocal' (if needed). I think MNET is trying to figure out how to cash in on this. It might be a surprise. MNET loves Drama so making her #30 is maximum tension- They could let her sink but 4 out of 12 being Japanese is decent. Sakura (Visual), Nako (Voice), Juri/Miru/Sae (Dance), Miyu (Wild Card/Musician/4-D girl)- She knows enough Korean (so Koreans will respect her) & she's humble- Koreans like that. It'd be insane to 'throw her away'.

    Nako is a 'Golden Voice'- They can swing for the fences musically w/ her. She's cute enough to be "Visual" or Power Vocal too.

    I think they'll take either Miru or Juri (they don't need both NMB gals) & Juri can rep for AKB- They dance well & they're visually attractive but they don't have the aura or ground swell Miyu, Nako, & Sakura have. Noe, Chiyori, Bibian are interesting as people NOT as Idols- It wouldn't surprise me if MNET or Korean TV asks them back to appear as guests on a variety show because Koreans did enjoy them.

    Sakunako.. kawaiii..
    Sakura .. Nako ... lets debut ????????????????????????
    Pretty young mommy Miyawaki Sakura.. taking her cute little daughter Yabuki Nako to kindergarten..

    Sakura and Nako little moment
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NLsG3trEScA

    Heart of Asia..
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qonqugBmbjM

    Only 3-4 remaining PD48 episodes.. Nako position as #2 in top 12 is already safe and settled (not like Miyu, Sakura, Juri, Miru or the other trainees) look at her current position and vote numbers, Yabuki Nako doesnt need many votes anymore to win top 12.

    Now look on the other side..look on the other trainees... even Nako's mommy and HKT48 leader : Miyawaki Sakura's position is not safe at all and keep dropping down. She got so little screen time in last PD48 episodes (8,7,6,5..).. they removed a lot of her screen.
    Its obvious that MNet only use Sakura as teaser and magnet to attract global attention and increase the show rating from the beginning.
    Sakura can be kicked out at the end of this show like Sam in PD101. At the end Mnet and Knetz will only get Sakura's side kick (Yabuki Nako).
    Refer back to the original plan..Produce Top12 will have Yabuki Nako for sure. Can't deny that AKB48 will release her easily, but maybe not Sakura since they love her too much.

    Now Sakura's position was increasingly pressed. PD48 not only removed a lot of her screen time, even all edits made by MNet and team sabotages increasingly cornered Sakura and her team.
    Without the support of Knetz & Sakura Fans in Korea, she won't be helped anymore and will continue to drop.
    Please support Sakura by choosing her if you really wants Sakura to have career in Korea (and if AKB48/HKT48 and Japan fans will let her go to Korea).
    We know that Knetz .. Korean voter has right to grab Sakura from Japan but if they are not willing to vote Sakura, then better immediately send her back.
    Please dont complicate her and don't hold her any longer.

    It means that Miyawaki Sakura is more desired by the world than Korean voter.
    If Sakura is eliminated then we don't care about this Produce 48 anymore.
    Onre of the reason we watch PD48 is because of HKT48/AKB48 especially Nako and " Miyawaki Sakura". The heart of Asia

    Did you heard the latest news?? OMG!! suddenly they kicked Sakura out from "To Reach You" Team to "See You Again" Team
    Hahaha.. finally they show us how bad they are !!! Yabuki Nako (Sakunako traitor?), Jang Gyu Ri, Kim Chae Won, Na Go Yeun, Jo YuRi... Are you afraid of Sakura too much?
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zLHJvmWX_DY
    Poor Sakura.. They throw Sakura into a new team so she has to practice from the beginning again in such a short time?
    All of our prediction from the beginning turned out to be right. They only use Sakura to be a teaser in the beginning of PD48 episodes to get global attention and high rating for this show.
    Its obviously that this Mnet team really want to kick out Sakura from Top12 so much..
    These "To Reach You" Team demons and a midget really wanted to win so much in a cunning way.

    Now Miyawaki Sakura's position is really critical and threatened to drop dramatically and be eliminated from the Final team. She has been cheated badly. Miyawaki Sakura really needs vote support from everybody right now.

    No matter what happened, we Sakura fans in Asia and all around the world will keep supporting Miyawaki Sakura
    Ganbatte Miyawaki Sakura !! Fighting!
    Keep spirit in high..!

    Sakura and Nako is my Oshi.. but i dont know now after Nako and Sasshi betrayed Sakura in Senbatsu and also after Nako
    "To Reach You" team betrayed and kicked Sakura from their team.
    I still believe that Nako deserved to be in Top 12 but not as Double center (not for 0rank #1 or rank #2)
    Nako height is less than 150 cm. Isn't that too short? its question from many ppl .. since they know that many top girls band like Twice doesnt have short member.. (all of Twice members height is above 1,62 m..).
    Tzuyu height is 1.7 m tall while the others are above 1.62 m so the group's appearance looks balanced and harmonious. Try to imagine if Yoona, Tzuyu, Seolhyun, Suzy etc are short like Nako, will they shine like now?
    The PD48 formation will look awkward later. I think she will damage the group.

    Yabuki Nako is considered inappropriate as an idol because she is too short. Many people and netters think that Nako's short height is considered not to qualify as an idol.
    She was even considered to have an unfavorable impact if he managed to qualify and join the group.
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fLYC0TMYvMU

    It is a fact of life, there is no point in us complaining or feeling there is discrimination.
    I am sure that later in addition to group performances, PD48 this group is not only sold for singing albums, but also for endorse advertising promotion fashion models, variety shows, drama/movies etc... etc. That is why they Lee Seung Gi said that you can't survive this industry with just talent in singing or dancing alone.
    Some jobs do require or at least favor tall people, including advertising promotion fashion modeling, (PD48 will absolutely need this), most professional sports, flight attendants, etc etc.
    In the reality, heightism is also a factor in dating preferences, for some people, height is a noteworthy factor in sexual attractiveness...
    Nowdays smaller is no longer considered better (part to the proliferation of the models of beauty and success. “Nowadays, children scoff if you mention Napoleon and Park Chung-hee,” .. you can ask Park Ki-won, who runs the Seojung Growth Clinic... do googling for the survey..
    “On TV, all young pop idols are tall or average. Given our society’s strong tendency to fit into the group and follow the trend, being short
    is a problem. Short kids are ostracized.” That is why there are so many growth clinics right now :)
    In my opinion, its always better to choose trainees who has the best in allp factors : (talent, Visual, physical, charm, etc).

    Everybody have their own opinion.. BUT its not us who decide who is the best to be voted here, its national producers .. and of course the real market response after they debut. The global market will show whether the top 12 results in PD48 will be accepted by the world or not. We all can only argue ..
    It's funny that many people keep trying to control who is the best to be voted in Top 12. We are not God/King.. lol :D

    For example: Sakura has proven in Japan and outside Japan that she is capable and has an incredible fan base. She still shines until now, has survived as AKB58 7 Kami for many years.
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qonqugBmbjM
    Sakura is also one of top 1st rank candidate in senbatsu. This is what i call proof on the market. In the same way I can also say that Lee Kaeun has also been proven to fail with her after school ... that is also evidence from the market.
    Now let all national Producers decide which one they want to choose .. The talented one? the one with good visual/physical/charm? skillfull one? the one with the most effort? the one that has proven successful, or has it been proven to have failed, or they prefer to choose the one has it not been proven?
    Do they want to take risk to sell unproven one?
    Can we trust 100% in activities, training and some drama scenarios that we have only watched for the past 2 months in PD48? or have more confidence in those who have proven their reputation over the years?
    Once again, its up to them.. not us.
    (even though the vote rule is not 100% fair for many trainees).
    Now, instead of giving a lot of fuss, let us give it back to national producer and then let's see the market responses

    For me.. I will always stay with Lee Seung Gi "opinion:.. that You can't survive this industry with just talent in singing or dancing alone. Visual, physical, charm, etc also critical in this kind of show (including height).
    We can't deny that. That is why many trainees has been eliminated even though they have good average screen time.. because lack all of those factors

    Heeeiiii??? Its not fair!!! Why they publish it now?? Another cheap trick and scheming?
    Do they hate seeing Sakura Miyawaki at the top of the PD48 throne?
    Mnet just want fans to vote for the dropped trainees, especially their fav wiseipul such as Starship, pledis girls.. their golden kids..
    This ranking will create sense of panicked and make the fans of those whose rank dropped to rank higher. Such a snake !!!!
    They publishing this because their girls are falling down and they want the public to react and vote for them..!!

    So? FYI, Korea is different from Japan, first of all what's talent?? Many trainies are more talented than Sakura... (I'm not a hater of her)many of them can sing and dance adorably than Sakura. Nako can do a LONG highnote, she proved it in GFRIEND'S LOVEWISHPER and SNSD'S ITNW! yeah, she's not tall but being an pop requires tall and talented? I dont think so, as far as I know it doesn't required but TALENT! See? For me tge advantage of being a CENTER is that they gained a lot of hearts because the camera is focusing on them. If Nako and Sakura will have a trial I bet Sakura will loose. What's the connect of Talent to Center/Vocal? And Sakura have no SPORTSMANSHIP(based on her reactions everytime she can't get the position she wants) ! that's the requirement for being an IDOL not tallness!

    The charm of Sakura is partly because she is always trying to live up to the seriously high expectations people have of her. You can see that her skills are not the best, and she seems to know it, but she is doing her best with what she has. Every now and then she does very well and when she does do very well, it is usually impressive. Many of the Kpop girls are practically like idol robots, with seriously good and consistent skills. There is room in the world for a high potential under achiever in the world of idols. We should enjoy their humanity if not their robotic skills.
