    Apologize to Dasu for treating her like she's invisible - Shes been in your group for longer than you've known Sakura & you just ignored her to rub Sakura's nose in 3rd place.

    Snooty Spoiled brat. She embarrasses every #1 winner before her acting the way she did. She's just a spoiled teacher's pet of AKI-P. Hell, maybe "Teacher Teacher" is about something else altogether??

    The election showed that Sakura reached her limit not because Jurina beat her but because Suda did. Jurina's victory was almost a foregone conclusion and the result of a decade of ground work and promotion by the company but Suda pulled a Yuko or Sasshi and through her own power landed the #2 spot even splitting SKE votes. Jurina has somewhat more exposure beyond SKE so beating Jurina would have been a tall order but she came close.

    @Conscious Pilot
    As seen in this video ( when asked who she is worried about, she replied Dasu. Didn't mention Sakura. The one she was scared about the most was Dasu.

    Jurina is always embarrassing

  • Comment Link Colin Monday, 18 June 2018 10:16 posted by Colin

    Well put. My thoughts as well. Though for me it was a coin flip between Sakura and Jurina. I could see either of them winning. But what ended up was not that Sakura "lost" to Jurina, but to Dasu. I personally couldn't believe it. Dasu pulled of something amazing, on mostly her own power. Really commendable.

    Lol why sakura fans angry at Jurina but not dasu the one who surpassed sakura? In Jurina promotion video (check akb YouTube channel) she's say her rival is longspeech Yokoyama,octopus Suda, cherry miyawaki and the others I forgot their nickname in tofu pro wrestling. It means Jurina see those who has potential to surpassed her aka rival. Jurina is optimists about sousenkyo but that doesn't mean she look down to others, lol someone who almost looked down to others is sakuratan in her news (about last sousenkyo) saying since sasshi isn't there she just lost her rival but in the end lost to Suda. I'm being honest here i don't hate sakura I like her YouTube channel and all. But y'all as her fans is too overreacting you think only sakura that has breakdown? Jurina breakdown in the beginning of sousenkyo concert, I think you guys should stop and get some help, Jurina is older than sakura and you say Jurina a brat?. But seriously get some help.

    Honestly, it's just because Jurina is so out there that people are just hating. Many countless members have done what she did and they have not been asked to apologize for it (Aachan and Yuko did this too you know).

    I think it's a given for any senior to ask for the underlings to try and do their best. Jurina takes everything seriously and thinks every opportunity and performance to be very important. Not mention that this event was going to take place in Nagoya and it is the 10th anniversary for SKE; as well as the fact that she recently came from Korea where she and many others have had a taste of the big difference in their trainees (mind you, just their trainees) and the 48 system.

    It's actually admirable that even with all this pressure and fatigue that Jurina wants to have such a good performance.

    Actually Sakura haters are blooming today. Can we calm down for a moment pls Jurina undoubtedly is the winner but she can't do whatever she wants it looks like y'all tolerates her for doing doubtful things and I really like how she handled this since even she didn't do anything wrong its okay to apologize or clear up things as fast as possible before it will led to toxicity of the fanbase. Anyways let's stop this even Jurina wants to end it here so pls let's stop the fan war

  • Comment Link Whyisthishappening Monday, 18 June 2018 15:04 posted by Whyisthishappening

    Has Sakura spoken up about this at all? Jurina and other members have asked their fans to stop fighting but has Sakura done anything at all to soothe the situation?

  • Comment Link Xiphyas Monday, 18 June 2018 15:22 posted by Xiphyas

    Both of them (Jurina and Sakura) are spoiled crybabies. Well done Akari fans, see you next year.

  • Comment Link tabe Monday, 18 June 2018 16:39 posted by tabe

    Apologize to Dasu WHAT? Go watch the SSK again please! It's Tokumitsu-san ASKED jurina to say something to sakura, everyone was shocked, not jurina want to say to her. Well played sakura-oshi, just distort the facts and make fake news then post it everywhere, now everyone points their spears to J.

    @Mr Conscious Pilot

    I think you should reevaluate your words. Treating Dasu like she's invincible? Like the others said, it was Tokumitsu who asked her to say something to Sakura (prolly for more drama) and the video Colin shared it's obvious she thinks of Dasu as her rival (in same group) just like how Sakura think of Sasshi as her rival. Y'all Jurina haters just want to drag this girl down saying she's cocky she didn't consider Dasu as her rival, let me ask you guys one question: Does any of AKB48 heck even all the other sister groups' aces competing for senbatsu slot ever considered Tomu as rival? Damn the girl didn't participate last year and this year BAM she's Kami7 but still nobody talk about her.

    Funny how I became Jurina fan because a lot of others' fans these days are shitting on her.

    I've been a longtime fan of 48G and this one is actually the most distasteful inside-fanwar. At least when it was Mayuyu vs Sasshi they talked about performance and skills, but when it comes to Jurina vs Sakura it's about personality and visual? Come on

  • Comment Link shiakijima17 Monday, 18 June 2018 22:43 posted by shiakijima17

    Just stop this mentality J haters = Sakura fans = Salty fanbois because Sakura fans in that day are more concerned to Sakura after what happened. They didn't even talk shit about J since they think Sakura's situation is more important than hating on J. Actually I think the ones that are mad to J is the casual fans since they feel uncomfortable watching it and they don't think reconsider what actually happened. Also Sakura spoke to her fans about moving on from what happened to SSK

    You fanboys should shut the hell up. This is probably the worst drama I've ever seen in TV. Over emotional young adults, seriously, I feel the worst when they reach "menopause" stage.

    No one bats an eye for this drama except the ojisan fanbase...

    AKBDaily, You love gaining attention for making a bad articles about members aren't ya? Or you get the orgasm by receiving bad comment about your childish attitude?

    No, I don't.

  • Comment Link Namaewashiranai Wednesday, 20 June 2018 04:39 posted by Namaewashiranai

    Lmao. People are pretending they are try to solve this or the management try to end /covering up this whole drama. We all know they rubbing it in.

    If not they won't let jurina made the apology.(it's just made the drama so much more official)

    More drama = more intense rivalry =More fans want to defend their oshi= More votes= more money

    Do the math.

    I won't be surprised to see the management give Sakura another center after the ssk single. Just to put more fuel to the fire that's already burning pretty bad.

  • Comment Link Paul Cho Wednesday, 20 June 2018 04:50 posted by Paul Cho

    Yes, I agree it is management's trick, but if you watch the video of this interviews (deleted) and the press interview (deleted), you will find they are very similar but different.

  • Comment Link Ra Wednesday, 20 June 2018 22:18 posted by Ra

    Well if this whole drama is aimed at the fan to create sales, it works. But if it is trying to get buzz from the media; I will say it fail miserably. It generated next to zero media coverage. The media seems more interest in HKT's Nakai Rika scandal.

    I stated before this is how Japan's senpai/kohai system work; it is the duty of senior to demand the best from junior and themselves. AKB & SKE's early generations did it all the time in rehearsals to get the best out of everyone.

  • Comment Link Paul Cho Wednesday, 20 June 2018 22:45 posted by Paul Cho

    Daily Shincho claims all medias were requested to keep their mouth shut. I don't know if it is true of not, but I did see a news article was deleted.

  • Comment Link Ra Thursday, 21 June 2018 03:54 posted by Ra


    Lol not trying to start any argument with you, Paul. But to think AKS has the influence to tell all medias; tv, radio, web & print; to keep quiet is ridiculous. Even Johnny & assoc. does not have that kind of power when SMAP rule the Japanese entertainment world.

    J tabloids like Bunshin will print it if they believe this drama will increase their sales. The reason when majority; let's say 99%; of the media outlets let it go because they do not see any value in this thing. A senpai is not satisfy with the performance and demand(some fans call it scream but I digress) her kohai to work harder. It happens every days in the Japanese society. I know some call it power harassment but overwhelming majority of the Japanese accept this tradition especially in the entertainment world.

  • Comment Link Paul Cho Thursday, 21 June 2018 04:20 posted by Paul Cho

    I tell everything I see, but your argument is based on speculation (but I have to admit it makes sense). For Johnny part, I don't really know them.

    For education part, please note, they are in different groups, and work for different companies (agencies), actually she had no right to do. Was it a right time to educate, and fans angry because her behavrour seems Bullying all her potential rivals than education? Yes, Do you forget other members? Do you read their tweets? Do you really want me to share everything I know for this drama?

    Are you really a fan? Do you see many people try to save 48G? Have you read read some weird news I posted yesterday?

    Do you know I don't apologize under such of pressure, I apologized often actually, because I don't want any fans received any false information from me (Though I admit my English is not good!) You can spread your theory anywhere But here.

    If you are Matsui Jurina fans and really love your idol, support her when she need you, not making excuse.

    If you are those fake fans like Jurina knight, thank you for keep providing traffic to this website. Google and I really like you, but I know you can do far more better.

  • Comment Link Ra Thursday, 21 June 2018 16:21 posted by Ra


    Sigh! I already said I was not trying to start a argument with you but since if you questioned if I was a fake fan trying to stir up trouble; I feel I have to respond.

    I admit my interest in the 48 groups is not what it used to since all my fav graduate a few yrs ago. I start following AKB around 2007 that's why I will say I don't see any problem of Jurina demanding her kohai to work harder especially if you know some Japanese culture like I do.

    Am I a Jurina fan? I appreciate her a lot more now because I can step back to watch the whole thing with more of objective eyes; her efforts, talents, determination & every ridicules Jurina, SKE & AKB went through during the early yrs.

    Do not take any contradict argument as a personal slight against you or your fav, Paul. And now Goodbye, you will not hear from me again.

    Lol sakura fans cannot say anything about skill cuz they know sakura is so lower than jurina when its about skill. She just got popular because her face anyway, dont be salty, but it was truth..

    High level skills in AKB48 groups is like having a high IQ in a ditch digging crew. It's wasted and it is unnecessary. This is partly due to the fact that the AKB groups have far more songs than any other singing groups in the world and they sing more songs in a set and a stage. Nobody is going to be a sharp in the fourth song in a set as they were in the first. Far more important is charisma, which Jurina and Sakura both have in ample supply. Personalities is where the main difference is, not skills.
