    She's pretty cute, and I'm actually really interested in how she performs... but whenever I see or hear of her, all I can think of is Ave Maria. [hehe]

    Maria's one of the new kenkyuusei I really noticed in the LOD I watched some of yesterday. She's not ZOMG SUPER AWESOME ALREADY or anything, but she's actually pretty fierce for a new girl. Kenkyuusei versions of Arashi no yoru ni wa are pretty special compared to the real deal, but she was actually able to pull off the dancing really well. I like her!

    In the LOD, she SERIOUSLY looked like Kumai Yurina to me. She frowns the same way, and...their nostrils are similar. XD Don't ask, okay? Wendy doesn't see it but IT'S ALL I CAN SEE.

    Anyway, the other day I pointed out the lulz of their being a Maria in AKB after, um, the song, and Wendy said she should sub for Amina so she can perform in Candy with Yuka and Kasai, who were in Maria with a third person, because OH HEY, IT'S MARIAAAAA MARIAAAAA MARIAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

    (Paruru's lovely in Amina's spot, though, and Maria's good at the Arashi dance. <3)

    THIIIIIIIIIS.

    She's not HOLY CRAP PERFECT AMAZING!!! at this point, but MAN, she knows how to work fierce! I loveloveLOVE watching her dance in Arashi no yoru ni wa. There's something really physically striking about her that doesn't stand out in pictures, but it certainly does when she dances!

    The more I see of her, the more I'm liking this girl!

    (And, oh god, I can see it already-- I'm going to get super attached to her, and then there will be a giant kenkyuusei cut again, and I'll be blubbering in anxiety. Stick around, Mariaaaaa!)

    I haven't seen any Kenkyuusei stage yet, but I'd love if she was promoted to have a namesake in AKB48 :D

    Re: Abe Maria / 10th Generation

    I know lol When I went to the theater I introduced myself as Maria (which is actually my first name, although everyone calls me by my middle name, Cat xD) everyone went "Oh, like the song?" hahahaa

    Back on topic, I also want a tall girl in the group xD Short girls are cute, but I think it's entertaining to see a tall girl and compare to the tiny ones :D

    First thing that catches me is her name. I doubt if it is her real name.

    Ave Maria?

    ^ Why wouldn't it be her real name?

    And every time I see her name, I can't help but sing "MARIA" in my head. :D

    Okay. It happened. Maria is now definitely my favorite kenkyuusei. I haaaaaate liking kenkyuusei so much, because of those stupid inevitable kenkyuusei cuts waiting around the corner, but I can't help it! Maria's too cool! Please stick around! *Crosses fingers... and toes.*

    Awesome! Yeah, I never intended to get attached to kenkyuusei again, but it's completely happened now. I'm attached to them, there's no helping it. T_T I really want to see more of Maria. A little polishing and honing of her skills and she could be amazing.

    ^ It's terrible, isn't it?! They lure us into picking out favorites, and then they cut them from the group! Ah, well. That's the idol world, I guess.

    Anyway, definitely! I can't wait to see how she performs in the weeks/months down the road, because like you said, with a little improvement, she could really shine!

    Triple post, don't mind me. [hehe]

    Another reason why Maria is awesome-- she puts a lot into her dancing, so much so that she loses parts of her costume.

    Before~

    And shortly after!

    Same performance, but the hat is gone. :lol:
    (PS, hello, long limbs!)

    But really, I love watching this girl dance. She's really got style.

    Quadruple... post...

    But it needs to be gushed about in her thread. Maria performed SNSD's 'Genie' at the karaoke event. Just... holy CRAP. I will be so GLAD if I get to see/hear the performance. AWESOME. (In case any of you don't know the song, it's this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1seOD8w2eOE )

    I would love to see her do that dance, too, haha. She certainly has the loooong legs for it!

    She also performed the song with Izuta Rina. From blog pictures, I get the sense that Maria and Izuriina are pretty close. Anyone know any more information about that?

    Quintuple... post... (But it's been a month, so...)
    (PS, ya'll should start loving this girl!)

    I just had to come here and fangirl Abe Maria's hairstyle from the November 4 performance. :inlove:

    (I apologize for the crappy screencap. Youku's my only source for this one!)

    Awesome. In Arashi no yoru ni wa, she looks even fiercer with her fringe pulled back like that.

    (In case anyone wants to watch, it's here on Youku! --> http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjIxNDQyNzUy.html )
