    The post also says that "If the physical condition is restored and it becomes possible to participate in the handshake party, we will inform you again".

    I meant handshake event is the most tiring event it will totally drained even fit person's energy. Well tho this is also the best event for fanservice

    Now you see her, now you don't.

    She's not going to be "fully recovered" by January, March or May of 2019?
    They must have some REALLY good doctors working at King Records.
    Either that or she just doesn't want to do crap like stupid handshake events any longer.

    Well in fairness she isn't a participant on the single and her inclusion would mean a lot of unhappy JM fans going and that could be heart wrenching to her with all the expected outpouring of emotions and comments good bad and ugly it might entail and maybe raise fan on fan tension. It just makes no sense for her to be there and deal with all that. She should return when she can play the returning conquring queen.

    It seems like she's just boycotting anything Sakura related.

    I agree w/ @Don (mostly) - Also Joe...conquering queen? She's only going to "ride the illness" so long. While we don't exactly know 'What it is'- this is getting cringe-worthy

    WORST Case senario- She pops in & out and sucks the air out of everything she attends (ok, fine people miss her) and KEEPS doing this until next Spring when announces Grad- THEN, Doesn't run in SSK 2019 and yet milks her Graduation ALL SUMMER Long but BARELY Performs!

    AKS is burning the die-hards to bought that #1 rank. Have her go to the Handshakes do a line of quick "high-fives" (it would take her 5 minutes) then she gets on a speaker & says "Thank you for coming- I'm here, but I can't do much- but I'm glad I got to see you all"- simple.

    She should be on SHOWROOM every few days- talking about her goals, past, Promoting current AKB/SKE stuff- Do it from her home- Give the fans something for the money they spent in early June Seriously! Rika Nakai has NGT48, her TV show, & yet still managed to do TONS of Showroom (And her "Ace" song is well earned). How did Jurina go from giving 110% to giving Negative 110%? Seriously. Even Paruru did handshakes when felt OK. When she said she was sick, she tweeted from the hospital bed. She came work w/ Burn Bandages, Crunches, & Showed off her bruises. Jurina was a Super Human compared to her.

    I wonder if there's more to this "Sakura SSK comment" and now Jurina lost interest in AKB, like she's punishing management by making herself as "unreachable" by fans as possible. I really wish AKS/Jurina would be honest with us about the situation.

    @cp what I mean is a home town SKE event playing to her strongest concentration of fans for a single in which she is the center so she can play up her election victory the the fullest so her fans can congratulater her not cry on her shoulder in a pity fest.

    King records also said in their statement that if Jurina is recovered, then she will be included in the handshake

    So there's still a possibility that she's going to participate

    Jurina has been a idol longer than almost everyone. She started as a young child and now she is an adult. She finally reached her goal of becoming #1. She is in competition with girls that are 14 and 15 years old. How can doing the same things over and over not be a huge bore? There is nobody left at her level to compete with. Sakura, along with Nako and Hitomi graduated into a higher level of the idol world. Kpop group Twice has Korean and Japanese members. Korean management firm JYP is making a new Japanese group in 2019. There are new things happening in the idol world, but not within AKB. They are the same as always but with new faces. Lack of promotion means that there are some members graduating lately but nobody knows who they are. There are not that many well known girls left in AKB groups and those that are are getting into their 20's. AKB48 groups are still money makers, but I think that Aki-P has lost interest and probably doesn't even know the names of most of the members. The new Japanese/Korean fusion is going to put the squeeze on AKB and Aki-P is part of that.

    @momo please note that nearly every professional athlete started as a child and continues well into adulthood (the exact same game over and over again), most entertainers start as child and if you restrict it to just Japan then I woud say more than not start very young and continue sometimes int their old age. Being boring in not related ti how long you've done somthing, it depends on how it makes you feel. Farming may seem boring to me but people who have done it their whole lives love it. Of course since Japanese people become adults at 20 they are no longer bound to contracts between parents and agencies so maybe her contract is up and she is playing hard ball. See I just made an unfounded speculation based on nothing but assumptions without an inkling of knowledge of her real motives, asperations or current circumstances just like a lot of other posters.

    @ Joe You say that just made an unfounded speculation based on nothing but assumptions without an inkling of knowledge of her real motives, asperations or current circumstances just like a lot of other posters.

    This is called speculation. This is what people do on topics that interest them when there is lack of information forthcoming. You need not feel foolish. Ninety percent of online posts involve some level of speculation.

  • Comment Link Joe Sunday, 07 October 2018 15:18 posted by Joe

    @momo only the first part of that post was directed at you not the part about speculation. It is my fault for not seperating the propery. But that last part was aimed at peope using speculation to justify not just speculating itself. When you use speculative data based on little or no actual information to back up a belief you hold that is where I find fault. My speculation example presupposes she is the kind of person who would worry fans in order to enrich herself because I think she is a vain and self important person (not really by in my example). Look at the other comments and see if you can spot who that one was aimed at.

    They have made Jurina into kind of a joke, like Bigfoot. There will be Jurina sighting claims and a blurry photo. She will be spotted one day in Nagoya and another day in Tokyo.
