    I remember your comment b4, it seems you quite support her.

    Age? Do I have another typo?

    It is very hard to prove in 48 seconds that you are superior in an activity like dancing. All the girls did a great job. Yokochan's view count is due to the fact maybe that Team 8 fans have nothing else to do but to watch her 48 seconds...
    Regardless of the view count I like MutoTomu's performance charming as she always is, fine as gold.

    @ Paul Cho Yes, I am a Yui supporter. I have been interested in street dancing competition for a while. I saw a lot on Youtube and I had seen Fun☆Girl before. When I saw Yui's bio and saw that she was in Fun☆Girl, I checked it out. She was pretty good at the age of 10 and 11 and competed against older girls as well as other young standouts. You can see some of these individual contests on Youtube by searching on these:

    [青森日産乗れそれ杯 DANCE BATTLE] BEST8 AKIRA vs YUI
    [青森日産乗れそれ杯 DANCE BATTLE] 準決勝 YUI vs RICO
    [青森日産乗れそれ杯 DANCE BATTLE] キッズ予選 HIPHOP

    More recently, her team won the AKB dance contests held on AKBingo in 2017 and 2018. They are also on Youtube. I am guessing most people here have seen them.

    This one was also pretty good. It was a performance at a festival with Honda Hitomi in 2016:

    AKB48 Team 8 & Da-Yoshi Collaboration Dance @ 2016 ABA Program Festival (だーよし、横山結衣、本田仁美)

    There is a lot more, but I am sure you get the idea.

    Yokochan is one of the best dancer in AKB48. She is also pretty and cute. I don't understand why wasn't she rank in senbatsu sousenkyo? And why the management didn't push her? From AKBingo I know that she is quite popular, in her hometown, Aomori. Hope she can be more popular in Japan and can get in the senbatsu song. Dance senbatsu only song is not enough.

    @alex individual skill is not necessarily important in 48G, it's a plus but not the most essential. Why? Because 48G is a 'group' not solo, Yokochan being one of the best dancers will still have to do the same choreo as the not so good dancers. Unless she's someone like Sayanee whose voice overpower the others even when sharing line. But she might get a chance when AKB do sth like UZA again where a member wasn't capable of the hard choreo so other person replaced her. Or so I hope, I personally like her a lot but I guess management isn't ready to push her bc she hasn't ranked yet.

    @Tuberose Actually the difference between a good dancer and a not so good dancer show up the most when they are dancing the same choreo. That difference can be huge.

    While I'm supporting Kojima Mako - I'm officially sure as to why she didn't place in the final "30"? of Produce48. The reason is very simple & sadly superficial. She's dancing in a potato sack. Because her sweatshirt & pants are soo loose you see delayed movement & it makes her dancing look jumpy & frantic- Not precisional. The faster she dances, the clumsier it looks.

    I'm not suggesting she wear a bikini but she wore VERY Baggy clothes for her final stage on Prod48- Look at the KPOP girls in 90% of KPOP vids, they wear form fitting or limb freeing clothes- it's a Performance Visual. How can we see your precision dancing if we can't see your limbs moving? All you see if a flurry of sweat suit limbs- it's a blur of fabric. Even Jurina who I gather is somewhat modest dresses for optimal dance visual.

    Want Proof? Look at Aoi Motomura (HKT48) she's got like 52K views & she was on Prod48. She's got a T-shirt & stretch pants. You can see how complicated the dance is- Where her arms stop & the precision movements. Mako needs to show she's actually dancing & not hide inside a tent. I've seen her gravure & bikini shots- her body is fine.

    Minegishi - GET OFF THE STAGE! Why didn't you goto Korea if you were into KPOP & Dancing. You're not going to be the next "Ace" & no one ever thought of you as a dancer. It's a VISUAL medium & unless Kojima Haruna is next to you, you can't compete w/ the teenage gals (just my opinion)

    Fans that can't respect a 1st generation member who helped build the group they like so much from the ground up are pretty suspect, in my opinion.
    Especially when that member has more theater performances than any other by a large margin and has devoted her entire young life to the group.

  • Comment Link Tuberose Tuesday, 13 November 2018 10:25 posted by Tuberose

    @Momo yes but there's rarely any individual part for the choreo which will cause a disharmony or should I said Fukyouwaon haha. Should do sth like Yaban no Kyuuai maybe.

    @CP I agree, this is why 'brain' is important for an idol as well. There's clothing made for dance to give better silhouette, and ofc a right hair do is as important. Look at Kato Minami dancing in her twintail, not pleasing. Or Hanachan who keeps looking down and had her hair covered her face

    Thank You @Remy for your input. YOU are precisely WHY Minegishi will not 'Go Away' (Not you specifically but). At the height of Minegishi's AKB popularity was really 'That Popular'? The girl slipped out of Senbatsu in 2013? The Scandal of Feb 2013 which she milked (with an iron grip) gave her a shot in the arm but she's been slowly fading ever since. She was never in Itano, Kojiharu, Mariko, Kasai, Mayu, Yuko, ect league. She knows it. She lingers arounds doing anything for attention. People see it & they're polite but NO PITY Points! (That's a Western thing).

    It's like the one male athlete who was part of a winning team in high school who STILL shows up to the high school beer parties trying to hang w/ the popular kids even though his whole class GRADUATED like 3-5 years ago. Why doesn't she just get a job w/ AKS or become what Shinobu was or work in the Media relations office for AKS- Something. NO ONE cares she was a founding member when ALL the Originals have MOVED ON. You don't see ANYONE else 'hanging around'. Surely she can do other things in Entertainment by now.
