lol. The OP of 435 removed it. That cunt.
She announced her graduation on December 17th, 2015. Her last concert and stage will be held on March 19th and 20th, 2016.
No Aoitan gravure pls. She must remain innocent.
are there any relatively new members that match the greatness of the graduated ones (or ones that are going to graduate within a couple years, if you know what I mean)
like I feel the only girls that people KNOW from akb are the ones that were in it first
I want you
i want you
i need you
i need you
i love you
i love you
I feel like older generations don't let younger generations get attention.
also, the feeling of "we are a team" is much greater in the grannies
at least when they are being filmed
hkt and team 8 are nice because they basically don't have senpais
With possible the exception of Yuko, absolutely yes. They'd be doing better though if they weren't constantly in the shadow of still-present senior members though.
>the feeling of "we are a team" is much greater in the grannies
Even among the grannies that's really only true of 2nd gen. But new gen would be doing better if not for these ridiculous shuffles.
I want to see girls crying, anon
like they all cried with kyouto's pranks
like when minegishi cried when hit in the head by a ball
like yuko cried because of balloons and because of happines
like that team 8 girl cried because sata hit her
like akimoto sayaka cried every time people said she wasn't pretty/feminine
the girls don't cry anymore. I'm crying.
At first I thought this too, that the old members were too good, but as I watched more and more recent shows with the new gen, I started to like them a lot more. My first oshi was Sae but I oshihen'd to a newgen member. There are many interesting newgens more outstanding than original Kami7, you just have to get to know them.
As a newgen fan, all this nostalgia shit management pulled recently has been gratuitous and obnoxious. Naachan makes so much money for AKS but there just wasn't room for her in the last single. I would cry out of frustration too.
It was being subbed until ikura48 died. Rip.
But it happened not long ago. I suppose akbingo hasn't changed in two or three weeks. So, yeah, the youngsters are pretty shitty as entertainers.
NO AOI GRAVURE PLS. ASSHOLES.
I feel bad because Aa-chan, Yuko, and the other legends were supposed to have graduated, and yet they still have to constantly show up for PVs, lives, and events like Kouhaku because the new AKB is in decline and isn't able to hold itself up without them... for example, their performance at Kouhaku this year was totally centered around the old members performing old songs. If it wasn't for them, who would have even cared?
The old members worked so hard to carry AKB to success, and I just hate that they can't graduate in peace without having to constantly reappear and bolster the group. The newer girls (with the exception of Nogizaka46) are really boring and kind of flat "aidoru" characters that never had to struggle to mold the image of AKB into what it used to be, so it makes sense that they just aren't as exciting or original. And it doesn't help that the latest music is super boring. /endrant
How am I a nostalgiafag? I just like AKB, you're the one drawing an imaginary line between generations and getting hostile about it.
Management might not need to bring back graduated members but the fact is that they are and they have their reasons for doing it. Stop bitching about it.
Because your memory of old AKBINGO is coloured by nostalgia. It wasn't as good as you remember, nor is new AKBINGO as bad.
And the graduated members are coming back because of the single debut 10th anniversary, not because new gen is failing.
People are just being nostalgic and wanted to bask in the glory when AKB was enjoying extreme popularity.
There really isn't much of a difference, especially bingo wise. And there are actually more variety shows to enjoy now. Nostalgia hits everybody. Everything in the past always seems better. I don't blame them.
Not really. The gap between good episodes is too huge, and it doesn't help that uggos like Izurina get shoved in everyone's faces, while qts from roughly the same gen like Omori are never seen.
Not the BINGO guy and I never said that bringing grads back had anything to do with anything failing, I just said that management are doing it for a reason. If seeing old members bothers you so much (with your clear bias against them) then just ignore the next single.
But I think the question here is more about why does management even have to offer them an extra paycheck in the first place? Why can't the current AKB hold up without graduated members?
Don't get me wrong, I loved this year Kouhahu performance. It made me really happy to see the old members performing the oldies and even joining in for Koisuru Fortune Cookie. And the PV for Kibouteki Refrain made my wota heart jump. But come on, at some point you gotta ask how much longer can the older girls carry the group?
>why does management even have to offer them an extra paycheck in the first place
> AKB48's debut single, released independently through AKS on February 1, 2006
Then don't label yourself a "new gen fan" and show hostility to anyone that mentions liking the past.
You're just an AKB fan. This argument of new-gens vs old-gens doesn't start until somebody uses the term "nostalgiafag"
>This argument of new-gens vs old-gens doesn't start until somebody uses the term "nostalgiafag"
You should probably follow this chain of responses back to see where it actually started. And if you don't want to be called a nostalgiafag, don't be one. Realise that memory lies.
Yes, I get it, 10th anniversary, and?
When a member graduates, it symbolizes release. It's a bittersweet acknowledgment of their work in contributing to the group, but it's also a commitment for the group to be able to use its own strength to move forward and face the future as an entity independent of the graduating member.
No where does celebrating a 10th anniversary necessitate bringing back graduated members. If anything, a strong group would be able to use the 10th anniversary as a way to relegitimize itself and solidify its continuity. Instead, this celebration was like 95% focused on old members bringing out memories of the 'good ol' days'.
Hmm, can you name some groups?
I don't think Momusu did it, but that's the only one I can definitely confirm, in terms of 10th anniversaries. Not saying you're wrong, I'm just curious.
Lol you're pathetic. Sounds like you're really upset about being called a faggot. Learn to back up your arguments if you actually want to discuss. Otherwise you can go back to S48.
We have at least 3 48g shows a week on air excluding ongoing web series. You are just not following or watching them. Especially if all you do is go on H!O and videodouga to check for content.
I think it's just me, but I like her husky voice
I have a weird fetish for cute voices like yuriya's husky, milky's nasal and haruppi's lisp
She takes lots of pictures and appreciates beauty. How nice.
Airi with long hair.
i am preparing for her graduation by taking an aspirin a day and will also be buying a defibrillator.
Anyone know what the song playing is during this part? I'm trying to make out the lyrics but the girls pop band singing is too hard for my gaijin ears.
Can't tell if I've relapsed into Momoclo fan mode again, or if I've just been watching too much stuff of theirs from the end of 2012/2013 when they were at their peak, and the undisputed best idols.
Seems like its time to jump ship from Nogizaka, it's only downhill from here.
Bullying Manatsu is not cool.
Here's one more:
Based OP. Team 8 comfiest group.
>posting best copporu
>Airi with long hair.
disappointing to be quite honest
It's been a while since the last time aoi and non had two shot
I'm not too keen on their uniforms though. Not very AKB-ish.
>those fat arms
>infected with fat
You guys are just a laugh a minute I tell ya.
>watching Janken 2015
Maachun deserves to be ranked.
Nanamin is so thirsty for gravure, i hope she graduates this year so she can become the gravure whore that she dreams to be
she went to jakarta (the worst possible transfer for a akb member) temporarily.
she was also in french kiss, the 4th best akb sub-unit.
her ranks in ssk were not outstanding but somewhat decent.
Even after getting only half the space that Nogizaka got, the sister groups still had half-empty events.
>You'll never squeeze Airi's boy a** to compliment her cuteness
>tfw not gonna be able to stroll outside with your oshi at 4am while listening to music
Which Johnny is your oshi, Hillary?
If you're posting here tweet Tano a picture of Nikes
Team p8do to be ignored as always.
That's fine, anon. We've all been hurt in our lives. Your anger is a projection of Your suffering. Nogi is patience. Nogi is love. You will be welocmed the moment You decide to give up that hatred and sexual attraction torwards minors. KTK is patience, we are waiting.
KTK has been hurt and bullied before. That made her what she is- love and patient understanding of suffering. I am personally waiting for You. I am looking forward to co-post some Nogi love on /jp and beyond togerther with You and rest of KTK Knights.
You can preach your false idol and charlatan group. My faith in the 48groups is stronger than before. You have been judged and found wanting.Retribution is nigh,hellfire and brimstone awaits you nogi scum
Team 8 is not 48, anon. You've been mischefied by Your sexual desires torwards children. There is no rush, take Your time. Nogi is patience. I will endure Your hatred. KTK never felt hate against her opressors, so won't I. KTK is waiting for You. Posting Nogi will make You feel much better than that pain inducting Team 8 posting. Nogi is love. Nogi is warm.
That's where you are wrong nogicuck. Your stupidity blinds to the fact that I am not the team 8 poster.I am just another 48 faithful against the insidious force that is the 46.My will is far greater than that Harlot that comes from that den of witches
That's fine anon. That venom comming froum Your posts shows how lost You are. KTK will welcome You the way You are- hurt, lost and anger. Nogi is warm, Nogi is peacefull tropical Hawaii island with KTK whispering "kimi no na wa kibou" into Your troubled ears. You will be loved.
Normally I'd say KTK or Marikka, but as for financiall issues, probably Kazumin is the way to go.
