    what a mess. It did nothing to help out Maho, and just makes it look like this whole affair is an annoyance to them. Her response on twitter is golden and she is just going to remain a thorn in their side.

    this is an outrage (flips table) total BS!! - we learned nothing new. ALL AKS/NGT did was add more useless corridors to the maze.

    You can tell by the way they selective choose words they know the meat of what happened & probably the why- they just keep using sanitized words and jargon to clean the matter. I've lost all faith in NGT48 - Shut it down.

    Send Rika, Yuki oguri(?) #5 girl to AKB- send the dancers to NMB & anyone worth saving to STU & HKT- just end it. You blew it.
