Japanese popular voice actress idol group =LOVE announced to launch a new sister group (TBA) today. Fans are surprise by the announcement, and wonder why the group do not recruit the 2nd generation, but instead form a new group. 

The group's producer Sashihara Rino explains to fans because she wants to build a group without Senbatsu (Selection) system. As an idol group, while she is planning the group's future development, she admits she has received lot of suggestions the group should recruit 2nd generation, but she did not like this arrangement, so she came up with forming a new group. 

Sashihara Rino also said she has already discuss with members, though the plan may worry fans and members, she will try her best to make it to become a "PLUS" assisting =LOVE.

    If Sasshi says it then it must be true - she is awesome.

    It's a good thing but naming them 'plus'? Seems rude to me, like current =Love is the less superior group and Sasshi is disappointed with them so she's kinda replacing them

    Plus means an addition to not an approvement.

    @Joe I was a sales for car before I know what a '+' means, this kind of name will make =Love sounds inferior than =Love+ and that's just rude. I would feel hurt if I were =Love
