    Oh, how far the once-mighty have fallen... esp now that Maho + 2 have announced.

    The karmic stench of mgmt's cynical, cowardly, self-serving decisions have come to stain everyone belonging to those three red letters -- apparently even HoriPro ones.

    I'm genuinely curious, with all the mess happening in NGT and Yukirin canceling her concurrency, if they still held the SSK this year what would Ogiyuka rank be? Somehow I feel like she wouldn't make it to senbatsu (for some reason I have a feeling that she ranked that high bc of Yukirin's fans)

    Here's a list of the other brands with Ogiyuka ads people are protesting:

    So what did she do that she deserves to lose her career and ability to earn a living?

    If they held General Year, if NGT48 are not involved in the scandal, (I think) Ogino Yuka would be No. 1.

    Just rumours. There is no solid proof she did anything wrong. Even if the rumours are truth, I hope she was just forced by AKS and her agency.

    Silence can sometimes be your own bane.

    The only way for the consuming public to protest, sanction, and "punish" a business entity for their actions or policies is to not buy their products. Only when the bottom line is in jeopardy will they change or make amends.

    Unfortunately, the reality of the idol industry is that the idols themselves are the product, so it is almost impossible for the idols themselves to not suffer the consequences of their company's actions.

    And no business wants to associate themselves with another business that is on the public sh*tlist. NGT is on that list so no other business wants anything to do with them, and that means not using NGT's "products" to endorse their own.

    You know who is going to Walk Away from this Immune? RIKA NAKAI!! Why? you may ask? She OWNED her 'scandal' LIVE at the SSK before BUNSHUN could print it- She never dodged or ran away from it. She took TOTAL responsibility- She took the bullet herself- I gather Management LIKED that. It's probably why Management "LIKES" her & she still gets work- She saved Management a headache & stole BUNSHUN's Thunder.

    If you think this doesn't "buy you goodwill"- Just realize, We've NEVER been given a 'Official' Reason why Jurina take a 2-3 month long "Sick day"- Imagine ALL the $$ AKS lost NOT pushing Jurina that Summer. Leaving Suda Akari & Sakura to clean up her mess. Produce48 was lightning in a bottle- Erii Chiba was "D Class" but she stuck it out & now she's another Korean Show! Miyu & Miru exploding in Korea- This was Jurina's moment as the Embodiment of AKB's #1 Golden Girl - to rep Japan & AKS...Sakura was bawling her eyes out in Korean to her Mom on the Phone & went days w/out sleep...and Look at her now! Where was Jurina?? She was "exhausted" - That's all we got.

    Is it safe to say Yui Yokoyama (former AKB Manager) was asked to 'Step Down' or was FIRED after that Summer? NOT Blaming Yui for Jurina- BTW. Because AKS realized they lost control of the girls (or NEVER had it??) Takamina had it.

    Maho will probably never do Idoling again- but she made the Difference NO Idol has done yet. Rika was dragged thru the mudd by various forums & even 'SOME' people here when this 'Scandal' 1st broke- You Were ALL WRONG!!! RIKA was Never Involved. Where is your Apology?? RIKA is gonna outlive NGT48 and it's going to be FUNNY.

    Nakai Rika does not walk away from this mess, she gets a lot of complaint too, by the way, I don't think AKS like her, and TBH, I don't think people would believe in Bunshun anymore after Mahohon assault incident, so I don't think she need to steal Bunshun's thunder.

    Actually Matsui Jurina explained why she took a hiatus (and behaved like that), because she had not slept for 4 days and eaten anything for 3 days before General Election 2018.

    I think Takakura Moeka is the only NGT48 member immune to this scandal, but it seems she is considering graduation now.

    Perhaps, Matsui Jurina is one of the reason Yokoyama Yui quits her General Director position, but I think power struggle is the most likely reason.

    At last I have to say I don't think anything related to NGT48 scandal is funny.

    @idolmasher: you strangely reminds me to that one guy who used to comment hate on Jurina (and her hiatus after winning the 2018 SSK) every chance he got even when the article has nothing to do with her at all, coincidentally he's also a Sakura and Rika oshi, also he thinks so highly of Produce48, and your writing style is also a little too similar to him.

    I hope you're not the same person tho, because I believe that person already bid his farewell, that would be like swallowing your spit.
    If I'm wrong then please accept my apology.

    i was gonna lobby Sashihara Rino to be NGT48 consultant or maybe higher to clean up all the mess happened after her graduation.She has the experience though,both as an idol and a producer of idol shows but that's wishful thinking.

    @Tuberose - I hope the Night King didn't revive that person...
