    It was a rather small scandal and to be honest with the exception of a plus 5k follower boost on Twitter there weren't any real consequences.
    Check out her thread to learn more about it. Basically there were some photos with a "he's just a friend" guy and Moeka behaved a little bit unprofessionally.

    FINALLY!!!!

    Quite happy with the senbatsu.
    Having Yuiri, Naachan, Yuiyui and Moeka in the first row feels like they’re finally pushing for a new core group.

    Hopefully the song is good, and I wouldn’t be mad if they self-analysed their situation somehow.

    fwiw the SR reception for Moeka was pretty bad (same for Jurina and Hinata)

    Unlike Team 8 and the sister groups they don't seem to have a quota for the 16th gen.
    With a 19 member senbatsu and quite some locks there is really not a lot of room to add other AKB4 members.

    19 is such an odd number tbh. Should've made it 20 to make room for Miss Yamauchi.

    I just realized that they put Yuihan in third row, wow.

    Seina is really gonna have Teacherx2 as her only senbatsu, what a mess.

    First and foremost, yay! Tomu finally back in management senbatsu, and Yuiri returns and in first row this time! I'm extremely happy for both of them, and look forward to their participation in the reveal and promotion for this single.


    That said...

    I don't like Moeka, but not really upset about her being center (though the timing is bad). What really bothers me is the lack of D2 and 16th gen members. If they really based this on HS sales, Zukkii and Satone should be there too. Rei or Naamin would also be nice. Also, Miu. Of course I'm sure there are other considerations, hence Yuihan, Akarin, and arguably Tomu's inclusion despite relatively lackluster HS sales.

    Also if it was just HS sales, Gatanee should be there instead of Hinatan [hehe]

    Also also, Megu... :cry:

    If they really want this to be "sustainable" they need to bash some of those locks.

    Yeah it was quite bad, same goes for the Koreans when they found out Miu is not in..

    No 16th gen but at least Yuiri and Tomu are in and finally hinatan is back

    Nah - Oogoe Diamond. Jurina's first single AND senbastu, and she was centre.

    It also says the first time the song will be unveiled is on July 24 at the "FNS Uta no Natsu Matsuri".

    I suppose this is the final version as they usually don't post it before it's all set (as far as I remember?) but two songs per edition is really unusual.

    I'll say a little stingy lol. I need the theater girls to show their faces other than in LOD and insta.

    I feel like this is an almost perfect senbatsu considering the number of SG members. A small problem is probably that rising members such as Komiharu and Miumiu aren't included. Otherwise I'm joyful to see 5 strong AKB48 members at the front row

    I'm happy cause Tomu in, but in back-line... I think she should be in Yumiko's position.

    19-nin senbatsu is so odd. They can make it to be 18-nin if they want to drop between Yumiko or Yuiri.

    It's not surprise when they announced Moeka as the centre. Wasn't Rika centering a song just a view days after her scandal before? So this is not a new thing.

    Bad decision: Miu out.

    Personally I would just get rid of the sister group members (with the exception of future SSK singles), they have their own singles and no AKB48 member can join them.

    Perhaps they will save Seina, Zukki and the likes for kind of an UG song?

    Moeka centre? I am so on board with this. <3
    Tomu back in senbatsu? HECK YES. <3

    Senbatsu is fine for me; fine with the reps from the sister groups, which aren't overwhelming and are quite standard. Lack of Zukkii is sad for me, especially with Narumi there because I don't get why... Okappa would have been another choice for NGT, but am ok with Hinata.

    Looking forward to a release after so long :)
