  2. Derek is a lucky guy to get a coaster from his Oshi and then his Oshi gets to center a song at the same time. Ok back to topics:

    Jurina: What looked like being exhausted at first looks more like a burnout now, I think, and this could take time. Produce48, the new Single, SSK, whatever the reason is it was too much. She should take a rest but should come back as fast as possible, because this is AKB and the 54th is just 4 month away. I hope they finished shooting the MV as fast as in Okinawa last year because they need to start the production of the CDs at least one month before release of the single and we got three groups in between. On the other hand going anime would be really interesting.

    53rd Single: Song: Ok I love emotional songs and I love this song too. The reason why we think of Nogizaka because of this song is that it is so long that AKB made a good emotional title song and they have a long history of good emotional title songs. I think the last good one was “So Long!” The last good ones came all from sister groups, like “Bukiyou Taiyou” – SKE, “Boku wa Inai” – NMB and “Kurayami” – STU. – Theme: Matsui Jurina as Center and everybody hopes for a new UZA. To be honest I do not see it in this Senbatsu. There are good dancers in it, no doubt, but for something like UZA everyone must be a top dancer, I cite Sakura “I can’t dance!” I think the song fits the release date perfectly, end of summer, end of Matsuri season an emotional time. – Costumes: Fits the theme and are totally AKB, really beautiful. – Choreography: Here starts the problems. That Jurina is missing is not the problem, but at least Sakura and Suda should have put their arms down, everybody knew the center was missing. Also the pose reminded me too much of the pose in Nogizakas “Ima, Hanashitai Dareka ga Iru” the send-of pose in Hashimoto Nanamis graduation song, like “We support you, Bye-Bye!”. The dance would be good, if there were not so much choppy parts, it needs to flow. – Aura: Robin is right Nogizaka is extremely beautiful but there is more, do you remember BiBi the aura reader from AKBingo!? I think he would see a silver aura in Nogi as a team, but for AKB I doubt it. Every member in AKB has more or less a powerful aura (depending on the fan) and in the best case like in Nogi the individual auras starts to multiply (example Maiyan and Manatsu, completely different but as unit very strong) but for AKB for me they just add up and this makes me sad. But this is a general problem for an AKB Group Senbatsu compared to a single Senbatsu of a sister group or Sakamichi. – Btw. I have compared the Top 7 members of the new single from Nogi with AKB new Top 7, my result: Nogi 4 (Ikuta – Yuihan, Yoda – Ogi, Nishino – Sakura, Maiyan – Suda) : AKB 1 (Tomu – Yamashita) : 2 undecided (Asuka – Jurina, Hori – Okada). About Asuka, she is like a watermelon sweet but with a little salt, irresistible. Her reaction during the 21st single announcement was typical, I was laughing hard.

    Keya: Techi – My first thought was “Babyface is back!” Then lot of scenes with a red jacket moving around with lot of flying hair and since it was live they were focusing on Techi with loosing lot of moments in the choreography of the group. When I compare the choreography with Techi as Center with the optimised choreography with Yuichans as W-Center, I like the later way better, because what Takahiro wants to say with his choreography is better transmitted. – And then I got angry, were was Hiragana? Almost every Newcomer of the Year was there but not Hiragana, and this says a lot about the relationship between Management and Hiragana. They were also not in M-Station and do not appear in the tour book. I am pretty sure Hiragana will get one song with MV in the new single, not the main B-side, maybe a second one on the regular and Kanji will get the rest with Techi as Center and a Techi solo or unit.

    Nogi: As always a dream and loyal to the fans, presenting the new songs on the last day of their 6th anniversary. The new title song sounds good from far (outside the stadium over internet), far away. Btw. this concert will be very hard to top. The DVD/BD Box next year will be crazy 2×3 days.

    STU: I think we should leave it to the Japanese fans as they asked us to do so, since everyone is playing the telephone game with the news, changing it or leaving important parts out. Btw. not that it sounds like an excuse, this manager is part of AKB and in different sister groups for 12 year now and if he had this attitude he would be out long ago. – This is a big problem for Showroom, no filter, so no control of what member are saying and as seen it can cause trouble with sould be handeled off stage. – One thing is for sure YouTube has to shut down the like/dislike buttons for the 2nd single because this rumour will affect the click ratio of the MV.

    Big Picture: I fully understand your point Derek and I support you and if I could afford it even with money. On the other hand I kind of understand the other side. It is a problem of “to like something” and the more shared points you have the more likely it is for people to open their wallet, and the argument “Idol Group” alone is a little weak as a reason to invest into your idea with all the competition around you, I think. Example (before knowing 48Talk, Necroma, with unlimited money): Me + Necroma: in Cologne (weak maybe but I am curious, you know my music taste), with a friend from Cologne (why not), Duesseldorf (maybe) + Japan Day or Dokomi (why not), The Haag (no) going to Paris for =LOVE (yes), The Haag (meeting 48Talk) they were a really nice addition. After meeting them and if they are in the area (max. 2h drive), I would get my “Mickey Mouse” to say hello. – Btw. it really pains me for not going to Paris to celebrate the birthday of my =LOVE Kami-Oshi Saito Nagisa live.

    Recommendation: Somehow DHL found a hole in time and space because I got my Nogizaka46 Tokyo Dome BD on Monday morning and after watching the BD this is a concert you must watch even if you are not a Nogizaka46 fan. The flash mop at the beginning like the AKB48 Wall of Girls from the first AKB Dome concert. The start of the UNDER block with video and calling every active member who is or was once an UNDER member one by one on stage. I love the Choreography for UNDER. The dance block. Ikuta Erika on piano playing “Kimi no na wa kibou” with the Nogizaka46 Choir. Then Encore. I was tearing up the howl time. I have “translated” the modelpress article of the concert and it does not even come close.

  3. Hi, great episode. I am back in Norway and no longer have jet lag. It was a great trip and I am happy I got to go the Necronomidol concert. the concert was so much fun. Also it was fun talking about AKB and the 48group with Derek. in the end I got a ton of 48stuff when I was.I hope I can go back soon to Japan or that Necronomidol can tour in europe again. It is sad that now when this time that should be Jurina's victory celebration time, is overshadowed by her hiatus. Hopefully she will recover soon. When I first heard Sentimental Train I thought it reminded me of Nogi's Syncronichity. I like it more than Ja ba ja, however I had hoped for a something like labrador Retriver, maybe something dance focused like UZA or Chicken line . I have high hopes for the next Girls and upcoming Girls songs and MV's are good. I am finally caught up on PD48 and I can't decide if I like it or not, but I am still going to watch.

    The BNK News is that Cherprang is in Japan, she is probably doing stuff for the next Girls song/MV. She has been hanging out a lot with Naachan and taniguchi Megu. Tarwaan did a Voov live(thai showroom) and some People called her fat and she became really sad. And after that most fans have come out with support Messages for her. the BNK members have done so as well. BNK second gen is going to have their debut concert july 17th. Hopefully they will do a Facebook livestream of the concert. There has of course been a lot of support Messages about the boys trapped in the cave. Victory has come out or is coming out soon. It is on Workpoint and it is more of team vs team focused than the BNKshow. There is a rumour going around that BNK's next single will be Gingham Check.

  4. Yo guys, great episode again! Hope, in return, i can educate y'all on the greatness of Katominamism… ♡ Either way, let's dive right into the subject!

    I'm shocked to hear about J going on hiatus. I mean, hell, this girl worked her ass off for years and years and suddenly…gone. Quite curious to the reason, maybe we'll soon know. What i know however, is that the idol lifestyle can be very harsh for your health. Minachan too. A huge lack of sleep, leading to constant body aches and muscle pains, even breathing problems, which then in turn stress the hell out of her, because she just wants to do her work. If J has that too, but in a even more extreme form, honestly i get her. I'd be like "yeah, uhm nice all this idol stuff, but i'd rather not die doing it". Like that Stardust girl that died back a year or so so, i still think she "overworked' too. Japan seems like a nice place to live, but the harsh reality is that work=everything there, and it might just cost your life in the long run.

    The Music Day was pretty rad! I actually was originally watching for that new AKB single (that for later…) but stayed and saw some cool artists, i didn't know before. What totally blew my mind away though was Techizaka46 with Garasu wo Ware. WHAT A POWER. You could just feel it. It's like the J-pop equivalent of seeing Bolt Thrower live, like a huge freaking tank waltzing over you. The only thing that could've been better is audience participation. Like, would've been cool if the crowd yelled that "whoah-oah-oah-oah" along with the girls. But that's all. Magnicifent. Amazing. Actually liked that SakamichiAKB performance too, but that song cough Silent Majority clone cough will never be Dare no Koto wa Ichiban Aishiteru…sadly….

    Now on to the sentimental trainWRECK. What a freaking dissapointment. Whereas AKB was trying to go back to their roots with Sukinanda (come on, the intro in that song is total Everyday Katyusha galore) and succeed kinda, this is just utter forgettable trash. Hell, the last time i truly have had an AKB single on endless repeat was Sukinanda. Anyway, where was i, ah yeah, TRASH. It's like some dude was utterly drunk, still decided to write a song, ended up throwing it in a trashcan, just a day later for it to be found by Aki-p just casually walking by. "AH IDEA" and thus bigass fart sound
    Oh well, i'm looking forward to undergirls, because even if it has a freaking kazoo orchestra, i'm gonna enjoy every second of it, with my little Minamon in there. ♡

    The manager story…all is said that can be said. However, i hate to break it to you Derek, but Imamura Etsuro (NGT manager) is an A+ class asshole too. For example, when Maho approached him to proudly talk about how well she's doing, all he did was laugh in her face and tell her she has no chance of ever ranking in Sousenkyo… Maho actually had the balls to say this on Showroom, like the STU girl. Minamon also once told he called her "busu busu" when she was suppin (without make-up) and has made fun of her for saying she wants to get into senbatsu. I could go on and on, but i'd rather not give that much time of day to him. Yes he did some awesome stuff, but sadly reality doesn't seem like what it truly is…

    And now, where you've all been waiting for…i hope. It's the one and only…

    ☆~MINAMON NEWS CORNER~☆
    * on the 30th of June, the new Team NIII's Hokori no Oka stage has started! This also means Minamon's captain days have officially begun!
    * with this stage, she has returned to her original hair color, leaving her days as a blonde behind her back.
    https://www.instagram.com/p/BkprXqfAMcl/
    *What's also amazing is that at this stage, she centered TWO unit songs!!
    https://twitter.com/asahi_idol/status/1013587863034720256?s=19
    seemingly one of the units has a a draftee/2nd gen in it. Minamon takes their role for now.
    * Team G have also started with performing their Saka Agari stage, but thanks to PD48, by the second time, Hasegawa Rena was absent already. So management approached Minamon to be under! But as Team NIII member, she hasn't learned a single song on Saka Agari yet so she learned the WHOLE freaking stage in just a WEEK! A WEEK! It made her extremely tired and even caused health problems, but she freaking did it. I have no words for it. A WHOLE STAGE IN A WEEK!

    Her unit song was End Roll, and man…she did breathtakingly amazing.
    * sunday's handshake event had some nice Minamon stuff, even showing her uhm…"rapping" skills to a fan. xD
    https://twitter.com/katomina_48/status/1015784824731127808?s=19
    and a 1-person fashion show ♡

    * Minamon going the Youtube ways again, with a new IGTV video! In this she shows the new swimsuits she bought. Ofcourse it's pointed towards girls, but please check it out, leave a comment, support, support. ♡
    https://www.instagram.com/tv/Bk2a7KRh5b0/
    * for fans on Mobame, Minamon has started "challenging" eating the same food as her. Whenever she goes eating somewhere, she shows the address and everything and encourages you to go to the same place. It's a nice little thing that brings both a closer connection to your idol and publicity to the foodplaces she goes to~
    * she appeared on Niigata Friend, accompanying the draftees, it's a fun episode i really recommend as you get to know the draftees better too. ♡
    https://youtu.be/LvOHwIK2zZY (starts 9:10)
    * last but not least, she will appear on AKB48SHOW at her art museum corner again! The model this time is her pretty-much-girlfriend Noe! It will for sure be amazing!
    https://twitter.com/k3pofutatabi2/status/1015966555933310976?s=19

    Yep that's it! Thanks for the episode! I also realised such a historic day in idol history is on my effin' birthday. The 18th of August. I feel honored. And i TOTALLY get what Derek means with Yanakoto. I can't even keep dry eyes with one listen to album, let alone a live performance. They're amazing. Anyway, till next week again! Ciao ciao! 😀

  5. I kinda understand that AkiP is trying new things for AKB, as you should have noticed from the recent songs
    And it’s super obvious that he tries to put the ‘46’ sound to this Sentimental Train song… cuz like AKB now is not as popular as before compare to the sister group and their rival group.
    So it’s kinda obvious he tries every random thing to make AKB good again, and putting 46 sound to 48 song might be one way to try out.
    and especially if they gonna stay with these kind of sound, this song which is the first song to start a new chapter of AKB48 without the legend ‘senpai’ members, might be the best timing?

    For me, I kinda like the song. I like an upbeat song with sad sound and putting some 46 elements into cutesy 48 is okay for me. My preference is these kinda song anyway so….

    But I kinda understand why people are so angry about 48 loosing their sound and trying to use 46 sound to make them more popular again. Plus even though I like the song, I know this song won’t be a big hit…
    I don’t know, but it’s kinda hope AKB will get some hit song again next year

  6. Thank you for your episode.

    1. I am not a Jurina fan but I respect her contributions for 48 groups. Get well soon, the queen.
    On a side note, Paruru posted a lot of twitter posts to support Jurina. She revealed that Jurina is actually a very nice person. Paruru even claimed that she is a SKE fan now lol.

    2. The new single is listenable but forgettable. I am not a fan of the “original” song from Nogi and this “cover” is worse. #SukiNanda is much better.

    I hope people who blamed the KnP failure to Mayu’s center position are still around…

    We all know that AKS has minimum care about music quality nowadays. HS and SSK are the main things. I hope reality will slap on their faces soon.

    3. TPE is close to disbandment. Poor the girls and shame on TPE managers.

    4. It is sad seeing TGSK leaving AKB. Thank you and good luck.

    5. NGT corner:
    – NGT will release their 4th single on 09/26. And they will have a promotion event on 09/15 at NIPPON BUDOKANNNNNN.
    NGT fans, please buy the single this time!

    – Gen2 and D3 joined a training camp, which will be broadcasted on a local TV channel: https://twitter.com/dwangojpnews/status/1016210254982332420

    – Amazing gravure shots from team G captains: https://www.facebook.com/1037662919588943/posts/1898791783476048/

    – The members are sick here and there. AKS needs to rethink about their tight schedule.

    – Finally, remember to watch Niigata Friends to learn about D3 cuties

  7. Hi Guys, thanks for another great episode. This time, I enjoyed it while riding shinkansen to Hakata to check second mark on my mission list.
    Jurina's hiatus comes in wrong time. She definitely deserve some rest after hard work she did for the group but taking this break right after winning SSK is little bit cheating for me. I remember several situation when winner has to pass his title to second in rank (on other competitions in Czech). And I would see this as the case here too – As Jurina can't fulfill her winner responsibilities, let's move it to Dasu and have this 15 member senbatsu. And I really like your cafe roles assignment for the aces. You nailed it perfectly. And the AKB0048 shows this really well – Acchan is this mythical legend everyone tries to reach while Yuko is the happy crazy girl that's part of our heroine's everyday life.
    As for the Sentimental Train, the song is not bad but is missing one small thing to be good – it's the "grand final" part. Song is building the mood pretty good but when the time for the main part that move you hearth come, it just switch quickly to start and not allow us to have this best part. And that's the reason (for me) why the song is just mediacore without deep. But there is potential in the song just not utilized.
    Agree with you that manager of STU should be fired really quickly. Although I can image scenario his statement can be used in legit way (like trying to exaggerate when explaining some girl's bad styling) it's still little bit over the edge of what should person in his role say.
    Too bad I selfishly spend my budget this year as I think the work Derek does is great. He deserve every bit of our support. Trying to spread the word of EmW but my reach is really limited. Hope to be able to have chance to chat with Derek in Tokyo as he was supper busy in Haag.
    So thanks guys and looking forward to another talk.

  8. Another great episode
    About Jurina's situation I do not really have anything to add since I agree with all the things said, although I really want her to come back for being an important part of SKE itself. I'm also a little happy for her not so present and members like Dasu and Churi may be even more likely to shine as a center as management does not seem to want to choose both for that position

    53th single … OK … it's definitely not what I expected with Jurina being center but I can hear it normally really many AKB's recent songs are missing from that something else that makes you want to hear them on loop several times and unfortunately this song is one of them, I can hear this song and Teacher Teacher (Jabaja no … sorry Robin) if they are playing but it is not like #SukiNanda, KFC or Beginner where I will always come back to hear again and again because the songs really are good and memorable while those two others are just there, I'm really expecting the b-sides (the clothes were really good by the way)

    About being similar to Sayonara no Imi … yeah
    I'm not a big fan of Sayonara no Imi but I do not see so much problem in being similar after all the creator of all this is Aki-p so he has every right to rely on one of his own creations to make another song

    Welcome back Techi
    The center has returned to its place BUT there is something that I really hope you comment on and unfortunately did not speak, Hirate is back but there are still some things out of place in Keyakizaka because Shida and Harada are still in hiatus and with the announcement of the new single…what they will do? choose both and promote music with holes in the senbatsu? finally pick someone from Hiragana and end up with all this strange division that they want to keep? (Do not get me wrong I love Keya but this division for me does not make sense, I prefer to see the whole as a group and not a group within other in) Can they do senbatsu without both but when they come back does it mean they will be left out of everything that involves this song?

    Since not much to say about the STU48 case, I wanted to ask you something.
    Recently Matsuoka Natsumi (one of my favorites of HKT48 by the way) has been getting a lot of hate from both Wotas and some (very few) international fans because of something from Produce48 (I do not follow the program so I do not know the full story but from what I saw it's no big deal), we had and still have all the crappy fans of Jurina and Sakura on the SSK outside other cases in the past…
    So I wanted to know what you guys really think of hate and if you hate or have ever hated a member for some reason?

    I think I can not really get to the point of saying that I really hate some member even though I'm not a big fan of her, in Riripon's case for example, I was extremely piss by what she did but even so I did not get to the point of several other people that I saw on the Internet that were simply exploding with anger and calling her names that I prefer not to write here, there are even cases the member is hated for being popular like Sakura or Sayanne, so I really do not understand that hate that some people feel, about certain situations yes but most of the time I find it very meaningless

  9. great episode guys, fun watch as always, good to have something to accompany me on my 6 hours long bus trip.
    but i want to say one thing #JusticeForNogiOn48Talk , and i'm a bit disappointed at colin for not bringing "that" up……… nah just joking.

    anyway, on Jurina hiatus, i don't really care to be honest. i mean hiatus has been a very common sight these days so whatever.

    one thing i want to say to the 53rd single is WRONG SEASON, Sayonara no Imi is a autumn/winter song, not a summer song, if you want to copy Nogizaka at least copy the right season. the song itself was pretty bland, nothing really more i can say. and i disagree that AKB make good MV, especially recently. for the last 3 years AKB's MV has not been anything more than just decent, most of them are not even that decent. AKB doesn't have the directing and storytelling element that Nogizaka has nor the dynamic and creative camera and editing work like Keyakizaka. the production value seems to be really low, and AKB doesn't really have any originality on their MV.

    Techi returns…….yaaay……?? honestly i don't know what to think, great that she's back but her return was sort of anti-climactic, she's just there as if nothing has happen, there's nothing different with her (maybe she gain a bit of weight), they don't even talk to Techi, the performance wasn't really that great, maybe a bit better than the Yuichanzu version. also the group has 21 member, now i want you guys to do a head count on how many girls are there performing on music day.

    the STU thing, i don't usually talk about these things and i wont.

    Finally i'm just going to leave these here, just watch it and say what you think about it, personally i don't like both, but it doesn't really say much since i never really like any of their MV.

    i guess that's it from me, see you guys next week
    Take care

  10. What kind of curse that Jurina have lol so many years that she's waiting for this moment and after finally got that center sousenkyo she still can't properly make it poor J but yeah after all of the pressure and backlash she got it must be really hard for her, I'm not a fan of her but this make me feel sorry for her maybe next year she can finally get that position properly maybe.
    Quitting pd48 I think is still a bit loss for her imo being the world senbatsu center doesn't have a mean if it's only limited in Japan and I believe she has been in top 12 in these three episodes so she had a chance to to make a debut there but yeah it can't be helped health comes first.
    I'm also worried about sakura I hope she take care of her health she may easily cry but I believe she's strong woman, C'mon sakura fighting let's debut in Korea!

    For the song itself surprisingly I like it, it has been a long time that I like AKB main song, it's definitely have nogizaka feels in there maybe because of it that I like this song lol, but seriously it's not in the great category but still very nice to listen and very refreshing it might be not better than sayoimi or sukinanda but it still better than the singles that AKB released recently imo.

    I've seen a twit that said Jurina sacrificing herself to Jesus returning lol and yeah godtechi is back! I know this will happen and I'm so glad that finally I can watch her performing garaware even though it's still not full members but it still so fuckin epic and what's make me more happy is her spirit is back she didn't looks like in dead techi mode anymore, I don't mind if techi centering the next single really keyaki performance is different if she's not there or if she's not the center, I think I've been attract to the techi cult lol
    And Derek you really on point to remember that av actresses name lol and btw they made a girl group in Korea under the name of honey popcorn and their song is not bad.
    Anyway thanks for the show guys sorry for not commenting in these past episodes

  11. Business as usual, great episode

    * Jurina's hiatus:

    – I can only wish happiness for this woman who has enlightened so many hearts in the course of her life, I hope she recovers well and comes back greater than ever. About the specific reasons we can only speculate and Derek's point on japanese physiology is quite right; there's this youtube channel "Kira sensei" where he talks about the books and investigations he's read about the japanese mindset and social behavior (also being a phycologist himself); and the neglection on mental health is quite a problem there.

    – About her leaving Produce48, I'd say it's not so bad, She's the AKB48 elected queen and the girls on PD48 are there only to attract the international attention to AKB and on Sakura's having the advantage on that field, I definitely agree, Kpop is all about "visuals" to an extreme point (korea is quite popular for that, surgery and so on) so yeah, she'll have the show for herself.

    *SakamichiAKB on THE MUSIC DAY:

    This song is for me Song of the Year up until now (I've listened to it an outrageous amount of times), the only "flaw" is the chorus similarity to Silent Majority BUT it was so well done that only a professional like Derek could spot it, the rest is just perfection, I understand they couldn't do the same choreography on TMD because of Jurina, still I liked seeing Naachan on the front. A final point I want to remark about the song is the beautiful lyrics, in this day and age this should an anthem.

    * AKB48 53rd single: I agree with the common "Meh", It sounds like a blend between nogi and akb + the costumes I like them as well (it reminds me of Negaigoto no Mochigusare, I loved that song btw xD).

    * Techi's return: That's how a comeback should be done, killing it left and right, showing why she's GodTechi + the next keya presentation as well, magnificent.

  12. First of all, thanks for another great show, your work is much appreciated.
    Now, Jurina. I am not sure I want to blame this on Produce48, but I feel that the timing of the show is a contributor to this. I mean, having this show, during SSK season, was a bad idea, for all the 48 girls. SSK is such an emotional and psychological investment for these girls, and especially for someone like Jurina, who probably had the most riding on this. She was expected to win, and anything less than first would have been seen as a failure, especially since it was in Nagoya. Then to have this added pressure as well, and, to be relegated to a supporting role in the show like she has, I just feel it is not really that surprising that it happened. P48 should have taken place in an off season, like March maybe, so as to avoid the busy summer season, but when has management any really rational decisions lately. One thing I hope is not the case, is the one theory that was put out here, that this is some sort of strategy on her part. If that's the case, my opinion of Jurina would drop like a stone in a lake. The fans did put out a lot of money and energy to give her the center position, and to play some mind games after the fact would be wrong, in my opinion. I am sure she is legitimately needing this time off, and I do wish her a speedy and full recovery.
    The new single is sadly, almost exactly what I expected. AKB writes crappy music lately, and in my opinion, they don't care. They know they could put 40 minutes of white noise on a CD and it would still sell a million copies. You hit the nail on the head, when you said that with the senbatsu lineup, it could have been a real powerful song, and they would have killed it. I honestly feel that they have 40 songs just lying around, and whenever it's time for a new single, they just rummage through this pile of stuff they have and throw it out there. This is why the 46 groups are catching/overtaking them, they no longer care about writing good songs, and it's become more of shock than a expectation when a decent song gets released. Very meh and forgettable, and Jurina deserved better for her first SSK win.
    The STU controversy is troubling, but like you said, there is way too much ambiguity to make a reasonable opinion on this. Did he say this directly to her or was it overheard, or was it hearsay? What exactly was said? Now, it's somewhat hard to believe that she came on Showroom that upset over nothing, and if she did, she should get into acting right away, but none of us know the whole story, and I doubt we ever will. If he did what was claimed, he should step down or be replaced, but, his life shouldn't be trashed if he didn't. Very troubling either way.
    Janken is another unit battle like last year. Kind of sad that they didn't learn from last year's boring Janken and hopefully the girls get more hyped for it.
    Glad to meet up with you for another week and I look forward to next week. Congrats to Derek for his Tani coaster. Be well.

  13. Sentimental Train sounds like Sayonara no Imi by Nogizaka46.A very bad senbatsu song because it sounds like a remake.You're hoping for a senbatsu summer single for AKB but remember Nogizaka46's next single center is Saito Asuka so you know it will be a summer song.

  14. hashu-tag was catchy, and it had mizugi
    this song should've been named "sleep train"
    looks like akb wanted to do nogi and keya at the same time and they did it with that music day performance

    mori kaho, pretty girl I watch a lot of her showrooms
    that manager trying to pull a muramoto from woman rush hour, because muramoto said the same thing in one of the episodes

  15. Very good episode!!

    For Jurina, I really hope she comes back stronger than ever… I never expected her to cease all activities like this… At least this pause will not affect her popularity because of her being a top member. Those cases where a lesser known member is just forgotten after a big pause its too sad for me.

    And a lot of members say that Sakura is a workaholic, so I guess all this work she has to do is fun for her.

    I'm not a fan of this single, but I don't think is that bad. The choreography is fun, the song is weak, but I could listen to it a couple times without getting bored of it. I really want to see how they will do the MV around this theme and without Jurina.

  16. I just found out about Jurina Matsuri doing a break. Hopefully, she will recover and will be ready to perform the group's next hit single officially and film the music video of it. She might announce that she will leave the group in the music video. If that happened, Twitter will explode. If Jurina will not be in the song, it might be a big break for Akari Suda. How long does it take to write and record a song? If you wrote the election single for Jurina, what would it be called and what does it talk about? So, a big announcement will happen in this week's episode of, "Produce 48"? Does that mean that Sakura will win the show this season?

  17. Jurina fans have been trending #weloveyoujurina and several other tags in Twitter. Also, I love your AKB bar and café analogy.
    I'd say my opinions for Sentimental Train are similar to yours; it's okay for me. Not great, not horrible. I'm not sold on it yet, but I want to see how they'll do the PV since Jurina's on a break now.
    And yo, I'm happy for Team 8! I'd love to see more of AKB in the US, because I would love to see them live!

  18. Hey guys nice episode as always 🙂

    Jurina gave her 120% for over 10 years now, without taking any break (well at least as far as I now) I think she deserves a timeout after all. The timing is bad, with produce48/sakura48 and being the center of the next single and all, but she wouldn't do this if she wouldn't really need it. So I hope she is ok.

    53rd single…. not good. Copying Nogis old songs….. uhm why? Jurina probably heard the song beforehand and just said 'nope I am not doing that!' and went on hiatus because of this^^ But I agree, costumes are good. ^^

    Well you said pretty much everything there is to say about the STU incident. If the manager really said something like this, get out and give me the management position. 😛
