    It looks like they mixed theater acting with pop dancing, she's a perfect fit for it.

    It is great to see Yokochan branching out. She is in the top 10 of AKB group in both singing and dancing, but has yet to be ranked. Of course, skills are less important in AKB than drama. We saw how well that worked for Sashi and certain others.

    Not Drama but more like , Uniqueness, Energizer ability, Crowd Control, Variety Skills, Fashion Sense,Trend setter, Youth Icon, Performance Charm, Reliability, Loyalty to a cause, Fan Service and so many other micro categories of charms. Yes that and then add some amount of passable yet enjoyable amount of Performance skills like Dancing and Singing into the mix and suddenly you are now looking at what 48G actually stands for. If Singing in octaves and doing windmills is the only kind of stuff one is selling, well one is actually in the wrong place to begin with. Also definitely in the wrong genre of the Music industry.

    I love Yoko8 btw she is so adorable. But honestly if inspite of being so vastly talented and of being of such a young age, she still wishes to remain in the sidelines in AKB there can be two possibilities . 1 she hasn't found a compelling deal elsewhere yet or 2 she actually loves AKB more than me lol. She has to get more active in promoting herself if she wants to make senbatsu in a AKB single Now is actually an opportunate moment now that many of her fellow team 8 graduate fans will be looking for new oshis.

    To me, AKB are like politicians. Speaking from experience, you don't need to be competent to win an election. You just need to have lots of charisma and a big smile to sell handshakes and promises. People love it when you give them hope and you touch them.

    Also the CIA and the Mossad rigging the election also helps a lot.
