    Even when Takamina was soukantoku... her power was only as liason; there was no authority given to her but as go-between for mgmt & the girls -- certainly not to override mgmt decisions.

    AkiP allowed the SKT position only because it gave mgmt two things: 1) a stronger inside line on matters in the member pool, and 2) a way for directives from mgmt to be interpreted by one of their own. It wasn't because it gave the girls much voice in return.

    And so it is with Mion. Takamina was a powerful personality, able to both dictate and consult with members without artifice, when so much hung in the balance in AKB's golden years. But Yuihan was always a bit more subtle and reserved with the chair, and Mion (AFAIS) is even less authoritative.

    So when I hear about her lamenting she wasn't able to protect Maho + members who stood by her... it's not like she could do much under mgmt's watch anyway. It's nice she feels bad... but Maho, Rittan, and Renapon are still graduating.

    @Kinako agree with you. She doesn't need to feel bad, but I can see why she feels the need to apologize. Mion is still learning and she truly love 48G, I hope she will be able to lead the next generation.

    Dafuq? Such a shitty comment.
    Takamina knew all member because she her time she get to know them all. And it is easier to approach Junior than to approach seniors. That's called Japanese culture.
    Yuihan and Mion didn't have this comfortable situation to be the grand senior/senpai of 48G.
    And Mion is just a very short therm General Manager.
    Her job is it to create concert, farewell and ministages song lists.
    Also she needs to gather together the girls and try to make every event work. So don't get a too high opinion in this work/position
