    It sounds like you need more Team 8 in your life.

    there's no one from TEAM A, K, or B. I don't mind a couple of new girls as long as they can sing but this is barely an akb song, its more like team 8 and new sister group song.

    What they should do is have a 2nd group like hiragana keyakiza46 and have them put out there own singles/album. I feel like all they do is put out mediocre songs and then complain as to why the sales are low. Their not gonna build their next kami 7 over a 6 months or even a year. They should have like a project where they have all the undergirls and lower participate (not in a normal single). Then get those chosen ones to form their own group (team) and promote them like that. What their doing now is choosing people at random and giving them a chance for a second and then not following through with them, we just don't see them again.

    Sometimes I feel like management is being spoiled and not bothering to put the time in.

    Your thoughts? I'm not an expert so please don't hate me if I got something wrong.

    ^That's what they've done from the start. It's made them hundreds of millions of dollars so I doubt they'll change now.

    @Pilot: they're like professional vlogger their showrooms are always fun and managed to attract a lot of viewers even though they're not popular.

    Kinda reminds me to Sasshi and her blog back then when she's overshadowed by the Kami7 but still captured people's heart.

    @Kisagi: it might and might not work. Hiragana is successful because Kanji is super popular nowadays as a rookie. While AKB the mother group is in crisis at the moment.
    But this unit might blew up like Tentoumu Chuu (before management ruined it with the other Chuu series making them losing their uniqueness)

    They did the same thing last senbatsu too. I think it boosted the girls' reputations a little bit (a few of them had a visible difference in senbatsu votes, at least).

    It looks like you did not follow at all the showroom x sousenkyo competition.
    The line up isn't that random nor management choice.

    The real tragedy here is the duo of Oki and Nakamura who worked together for 16th and 17th and only one got in from the STU48 Draft 3rd members. The Rika horde wasn't expecting to see an STU member so close to their precious it was hilarious. I am glad nobody really went for one member, they split fairly evenly to each group. Nobody in Vanilla AKB really went for this so they are not in. Some people who won this last year or the year before didn't do it so it could have been different.

    To elaborate a bit on Someone48's post, they won these spots by getting their viewers to wait 50 seconds and throw stars when they were on showroom. It was an official event and no one was chosen by management. It's a direct result of member and fan participation.

    What you said was true in general so I forgot to mention it even though I threw many a star at Hidaritomo Ayaka.
