    Finally Mion got her office. The first Sku was fearless, while the second one approachable. As for her aura I believe she is quite similar to her predecessor maybe a tad bit more outspoken and that is a good thing no doubt. But the issue is with the the timing. At the rate the group is disintegrating and going down in popularity being a Sku at this point of time in AKB seems more like a Honorary office that it already was before. I just hope she doesn't take the group's already determined fate to be her own creation as many a losers will try to make her believe. Here's to hoping that she can actually enjoy her position.

    No Election, watered down Janken, No Events over the summer, simple arm waving songs- These are the "Granny Panties" years of AKB48 and Mion is the clip board holder- wow.

    They better have some reality TV event or something this summer because this will be the 3rd summer of KPOP in Japan and IZ*ONE is looking to be as popular as TWICE in Japan. No Election means all that Wota money will find a new home the habit patterns of hardcore AKB fans will be broken.

    These fans spent 1,000's on AKB48 votes- Now, they'll travel, pay bills, invest in a new hobby?, get into more video games, & look into other J/kpop groups. This is literally the last thing AKS needs unless it's been the plan to Phase out AKB for awhile.

    Yokoyama must be graduating in a few months

    I love Mion as an idol, she's earnest and cute makes me want to protect her from all the evil but that means she's too fragile to hold this important position. She's a 48G wota (proven by winning the test). I know Yuihan said she'll assist her, and together with Naachan and yuiyui she's going to lead the next generation.

    @Heywood: I also miss the old Janken, summer songs were my fav (not bc of the bikini, I love their happy vibes) but after Labrador Retriever they stopped doing their classic summer, no Janken means there's nothing to anticipate and fans can't no longer contributing in choosing members.
