    They should do as the miss America pagent does. If you are unable to perform the duties of the office then you should get step down or be stripped of the title which then falls on the runner up. Honestly Jurina doesn't need it to be put center on a future single, they've done it many times when she was lower.

    But stripping her off of the title that fans bought for her means suicide for management. I can already see J's wota not buying the 53rd single, in fact I'll wait for a month to get mine (fyi J is not my kami oshi) as an act of protest.

    i personally don't mind if they want to ask her to step down
    Dasu as world no 1 is not a bad thing for SKE fans like me
    but please give back jurina's vote money to all the voter
    it's not a lunch money, you literally can buy houses with that money

    I can't believe how supposed 48G fans behave here. Do you care about Jurina's health and well-being? She has dedicated all her life at making the 48G much better, there hasn't been a better dancer and stage performer as she has been, bringing stage performances to a perfect-score level, and this is what you pay her back with??? Shame on you. How despicable and meaningless you are.

    I'm confused. What does "AKS DROPS Jurina" actually mean? (in this context)

  • Comment Link yy Friday, 10 August 2018 04:28 posted by yy

    Just my opinion; both kinoshita yukiko & saito makiko are better dancers than jurina and akimoto sayaka & yuko are better stage performers. But j is definitely one of the best; there's no doubt.

    I am planning to order a couple more of "ikinari punch line" cds at the same date of the 53rd akb single come out as a show of support of ske & all the ske girls who ranked.

    @ray as a regular fan of AKB who doesn't put J on a pedestal I think I am fairly objective and admit that she is pretty good but not anything special beyond other top members. So you don't think putting out the election single without a center or having a trophy on center stage is doing the fans a good turn? Jurina can and will be center on a regular single anytime once she "recovers" but I think that what they are doing is dishonering the 1.5 million people who casted votes for other members by making a mockery of the election.

    there has been tons of better performers than jurina , for example Yuko to name one.
    Honestly if she just isnt capable of handling the duties of a center, she should just graduate and period.
    Why the favoritims?
    Once again, Jurina is AkiP's oshi, so he lets her rest and keeps her on the group even though tons of other girls performed sick as hell an would been kicked out if they couldnt perform.

    @SKEeverythingelse the election is just fan service and a way to boost sales. It is true that some dishonorable or unbalanced people go overboard but most votes are from single ballots that are aquired in a number of ways, not all require additional purchase like fan clubs. It is true that the ballot single contributes a lot which is shown by the sales number but to be clear... Voting and the election is a gift to the fans, they cannot legally sell votes and they are under no obligation to hold the election at all, or to allow the votes to really count or go with the peoples choice. I am sure they disclaimed any obligation before they announced it to the public. Naturally they run it legit and go with the results but they dont even have to run the event even after announcing it - it is a gift to the fans.

    @Ray what drug are you on? Jurina very talented (no one is denying that) but as Prod48 shows - MANY AKS idols are just as talented- They were NEVER given the chance or challenge to do so. What has the SKE fandom being doing during all this?? Are the Idols upset? Are they 'getting on'- How is Suda dealing w/ all of this?

    I bet she pissed off management that night (election night)- She probably got "Full of herself" thinking she's #1 & untouchable and they brought her down to earth REAL Fast. My theory is she was on drugs (Uppers? maybe) to stay awake & perform and when she collapsed (before the election) the Doctors did blood tests or figured out what she was on later. I bet the Sakura thing was caused by whatever Jurina was taking- so they had 2 Messes she cause & they forced her to apologize over the Sakura thing (to make it go away)- then hours later got her Blood results & knew she "lied" about being on drugs.

    So she possibly flipped off Management, Threatened another Idol, & lied about being on something - or ALL 3 HYPOTHETICALLY. It's just a theory!!

    If it was "Health" (like a leg issue, a Disease, or Surgery) they would've said something by now. Someone would've said something. If it was a innocent health concern- she could tweet from her bed or AKI-P could say "I just visited J- she misses everyone"- NOPE, this sounds like REHAB or something like that. The ominus "If/When she returns to the Group" implies that might never happen.

    My other theory is she's in a Coma - Why? who knows.

    do you all forgetting about haruppi?
    i don't hate her (in fact she's my fav from HKT) but i just want to show your hypocrisy
    she's ONE of HKT center and girl has been on hiatus since idk when
    if no one asking her to grad, then you all can stop asking jurina to grad
    end of discussion.

    and for the second discussion, as a jurina oshi myself, i don't think jurina's the best dancer whatsoever, i'm not that delusional, but she has unusual(idk how to describe it) performance vibe that can suck you in and think she's very charming and engaging, even when she's not in the spotlight, you can find her easily

    @yy buying a couple more of a single to show support is a waste of money. Not sure where you live or how involved you get but would'nt that money go better by getting some birthday vods I mean if you live close enough to do handshakes that is different because they count how many fans visit each idol and those who have a lot can move up but otherwise the idols don't get anything out of extra cd sales.

  • Comment Link Joe Saturday, 11 August 2018 13:53 posted by Joe

    @discussiontime with all due respect to Haruppi she is hardly equatable to this situation because Haruppi is a minor player or a big fish in a small pond not a linchpin of the entire franchise like Jurina or somone like Sakura, Sashihara or Sayaka who carry a much heavier weight. They must be able to lift and bring attention to all the sister groups and because of that there is a counter effect. If Haruppi looks weak she looks weak but if Jurina does the whole product does.

    @sool47 There has never been a high performance Yuko in SKE48, you are a complete idiot. We have had Yukiko who was super charming but not such a high level performer, and we had the great Nakanishi who was truly the mother of the group, we miss her very much but...she is a housewife now.
    There has hardly been a performer with the same level of perfection as Matsui Jurina in THE ENTIRE 48G. People asked why she had been dressed as Michael Jackson: the only artist in the whole 48 Group who could try and imitate Michael without risking ridicule is the Great Jurina.
    The only girl in SKE who could somehow outshine Jurina because of her personality and charm was our beloved Rena Matsui. We miss them both deeply, we adore them both. We all regret that our pretty Jurina has not been able to enjoy her superb victory and hope she comes back soon.
    When I say WE , I mean the entire World not just one or two countries. This is global fever, not just a local kitchen argument. Show some respect you sillyhead.

    It is a free world, but you can like the idol you like, and speak everything you like, but please note you are comparing your idol to all SKE48 and even 48G members, as an administrator I may delete your comment if I find it is too aggressive, and I hope you understand it is not personal.

  • Comment Link Conscious Pilot Sunday, 12 August 2018 04:11 posted by Conscious Pilot

    @RAY... I like the exuberance & you certainly have the "Passion" of a 'True Believer' when it comes to Jurina... but You're forgetting 1 detail. Yuko, Itano, Acchan, & Sayanee (and probably Milky & Sae Miyazawa) could easily out dance or shine Jurina.

    Also- out of over 20 A-Sides why wasn't ANYONE ever allowed equal or more spotlight than Jurina? You can claim she's the BEST SKE ever had- but we never got a chance to see ANYONE Else try except maybe Rena & she learned early on it was a Zero Sum game. She wasn't getting "over that wall".

    I think Jurina did this to herself. If Management wanted to they could move her #1 Center to the Fall (A Double A-Side!) they could market her "comeback"- They could even Pick a song she already sang & build a single for 15 others around it... AKB took the fans money & is Moving ON - they don't seem to moving the earth for Jurina anymore (#1 or Not)- Something went down.

    If YOU are correct, then you can crow all you like during her return but as you said AKB is going to lose 3 Lynch-Pins by the end of October 2018 (Sakura & Sayanee & possibly J)- AKB should NEVER had leaned on her so much- Now, the AKB Team 4? Mako & Juri (w/ Kpop training), Yui Oguri? Someone will have to be the face of AKB- No more delays, graduations, or Sister Group "Ace" Interference. AKB is in for a long Winter if they don't get people excited about THEM again.

    Luckily Prod48 made AKB relevant again- they rely on Jurina anymore even if she comes back SKE will demand she CHOOSE a Side.

    Lol, since it's my money, I believe I can spend however I want. I've following akb almost from the beginning, I am certain a fan can spend his/her money to support whoever or whatever group at any time. Unless there's a new rule against that, I think I will follow my heart as I always done but I thank you for your advice.

  • Comment Link Joe Sunday, 12 August 2018 11:45 posted by Joe

    @ray Jurina has never been only SKE so why would we be treating her as it. Please bring it down some so I feel like you are a person capable of any objectivity in ths subject because yoour comments are really bombastic. If this was Yuko Oshima or Sashihara Reno my two favorites I would want then to step down from being #1 and center on this single and to rethink being in the group anymore but only if they can't handle the preassure of sucess and the negative vibes you get when some feel you got more help getting there than 99% of the rest because that is totally normal in a competitive enviroment.

  • Comment Link Joe Sunday, 12 August 2018 16:08 posted by Joe

    @yy how long you are a fan doesn't increase your legitimatacy or give you some seniority over any other real fan. A fan is a fan snd all of them became one only after they discovered them. Another point is AKB and its sister groups are not even the same groups they were in the begining only the basic concept and a very few members remain I can argue that the music style isn't even the same. But you are correct you can spend your money how you want. I was just saying it wont make a bit of difference to the members.

    @Ray wrote "People asked why she had been dressed as Michael Jackson: the only artist in the whole 48 Group who could try and imitate Michael without risking ridicule is the Great Jurina."

    You're greatly mistaken. Akimoto Sayaka did Michael Jackson in her Danso, and when the Michael Jackson tribute show "Thriller Live" came to Japan in 2014, Akimoto Sayaka was invited to go on stage with them, and appeared at the press conference for the show, not Jurina.

    At least, do a little research before making absurd claims.
