Today, AKB48 announce they will not hold General Election this year. For this issue, HKT48 member Sashihara Rino expresses her opinion about AKB48's decision:

"As a person who gets well-known by General Election... I understand the complicated feeling of members and fans who have been working hard for General Election, but, I think they can not hold General Election while there are still a lot of things they are not able to organize nor explain."

    "I think they should not hold General Election while there are still a lot of things they are unable to organize nor explain."
    She says what I am thinking. I don't think it's because of anything money related. AKS is facing an internal crisis. They should get their act together first.

    Thank you for your comment.
    Sorry, i have changed the wording "they should not hold" into "they can not hold".

    You could not do a worse translation. Your phrasing is terrible

    @Paul Cho
    It's fine Paul. I was too quick to comment. So don't feel bad about it.

    Sasshi is a very observant young lady and I agree with her that management is a mess rn, but as an old fan SSK is one thing that still keep me following 48G bc I need to support my oshis.
    In recent years, a lot of things changed.
    I miss old Janken, I miss not-one-shot subunits that actually released singles and performed on the music show (goes without saying I miss Unit Matsuri too), I miss Sakura-themed single and Summer Anthem, I miss drama with a serious story line like Sakura kara no Tegami or So Long, I miss many of their TV and radio shows, I want sth like Amebapigg Unit Battle again, I want to see members competing in sport festival again, I wish they would make song that talk about society or a daring sexy song like the old time.
    Now that SSK is cancelled, should I bid my farewell?

    I agree with her, it would be a very bad look to hold it with everything that is going on with AKS and NGT right now.

    I am sure they are terrified that Maho would get a lot of support votes maybe even enough to land in the too 3.Not that they dislike her only that it would bring a lot of unwanted attention to what happened as well as dig up old Wounds. I'm sure they're also concerned about the Jarina question. Her winning was a complete disaster and I'm sure there a little shy due to the unpredictable nature now.

    Is there something so rotten in AKS (or parts of it) that Idols are beginning to graduate as soon as they're aware of it?

    I wonder if there's no SSK because anyone worth promoting is leaving, Not participating, or compromised. Why would AKS risk all those resources on a bunch of Idols they don't control or ever wanted to sell.

    I heard a shocking theory that SKE with Jurina did a "2 for 1". They've always known how AKS disliked Suda Akari so in making her #2 then Jurina agreed to take hiatus so Suda could shine as de-facto #1 & flipping the bird to AKS management. There's always been a unity to SKE. The result of this troll was they were punished and sold to Keyholder (Stripped of AKS protection). The endgame being Jurina fell on her sword as a show of power depriving AKS of milking her "Ace" for the Summer - Sakura & HKT were not involved and that Jurina intentionally withdrew from "Produce 48" so Sakura run unopposed & unchallenged & escape AKS. The SSK Jurina/Sakura controversy was designed by SKE & Jurina to make Sakura an underdog in Prod48. Why you ask? Jurina wanted to stick it to AKS for past abuses of previous Idols- they'd never see it coming. Jurina didn't want Sakura or anyone to get "used" or manipulated by AKS (like she was)- Paruru never played the game, Kawaei was never the same after her handshake attack accident, Mayuyu changed after she got #1, Minegishi (God knows what that was), even Yuko has goofed on AKS after leaving. Takamina took forever to leave cause she was protecting the girls. Jurina stopped the wheel from crushing her friends last Summer (Remember the BIG Secret Meeting?). Jurina is the silent hero who blew up her dream to save others in AKB48. Why are so many "Next Gens" in AKB abandoning ship? What helped them make that choice so suddenly.

    Was the NGT thing a hazing ritual gone wrong?

    It was part of a messed up group of theories from a poster called "#Paruminati" on some Idol board for Torrents.

    Everything in AKB48 begins with Acchan and ends with Jurina. This is why NO One is allowed to get past Jurina - it disturbs the 10 year ritual.

    *AKB48's 1st SSK Winner: Acchan - Final: Jurina
    *The last person to have an Janken A-Side: Jurina
    *The last person to have a SSK election #1 A-Side: Jurina
    *The 1st Center of "Oogoe Diamond" is Acchan & later becomes Jurina.
    * "Oogoe Diamond" is the 10th MAJOR single for AKB and also Jurina's 1st Single w AKB
    * She was #1 in the 10th SSK Election and in 1st Election she was "#19" and by the end of 2019 she'll announce Graduation.
    * Add up all her Ranks in the 10 SSK elections and it's: 74 (Add "10" for 10 years) it's "84"- which is 48 Backwards.
    * Jurina was "11" when she joined AKB & will graduate "11" years later. ("11" is a big number in Illuminati Occult groups).
    *AKB48's 11th single is "10nen Zakura" (10 year cherry blossom) = 10 years of SSK Elections.
    *SKE48's 11th single is "Choco no Dorei" - SLAVES of Chocolate. Is SKE Jurina's Slaves??
    *SKE48's 10th single is "Kiss Datte Hidarikiki" - *** Make your own assumptions here- I don't get it.
    *Jurina is born March 8th = 3+8 = "11"

    There were other weird stuff like Her role in "UZA" as Mayu's over-seer & She's the Bank Robber (Rebel) in "Gingham Check". She's a Vampire in "Halloween Night" (I forget why). She delivers the kill-shot with Acchan in the "Beginner" video. There was never a plan for AKB48 past Jurina & "11 years" because that how long the ritual was intended to be.

    So know Jurina might be a Time-traveler?? Which explains her Aging forwards & backwards at odd times- Maybe there's more than 1 Jurina? what if there are "11" of them- I don't know.

    @Idol Thoughts: lmao I think whoever came up with that theory is either on drugs or have a very powerful imagination. But it's a nice read tho.
    You should add: Acchan gave birth to a son in 10Nen Zakura's 10y anniv who would later grow up to revive 48G in the future. Illuminati?

    AKB management is afraid Techi or Shiraishi might win????????

    @Idol Need Powerfull system to control something big. AKS get it done very nice until this year. Now you realize there's something wrong with them. Ah you're too late... System need to run from inside and outside...

    If AKS ever quits, it's not strong enough to carry the business. AKB48 needs someone stronger to take over, without a doubt, even the girls themselves can do it. period
