    Let's give this a shot too!

    Hopes

    Jurina and Rena move up one position in the ranks next year to fill the gap left by Mariko
    Akarin stays in election senbatsu or center UG
    Aya doesn't drop in rankings that much
    Girls who newly ranked this year aren't 'one-hit wonders' like Nakata Chisato or Kobayashi Kana in '12
    4 singles next year
    No new girls coming in before they promote at least half of the current KKS
    Jurina doesn't fall ill again due to overwork


    Fears

    Opposite of above, plus
    Akane decides not to participate in the election and announces her grad
    Manatsu gets kicked out of senbatsu
    Kaotan drops in rankings and doesn't participate in a single a-side
    Ryoha becoming a sort of 'failed push' like Anna or Kato Rena
    Mass grad


    Predictions

    Mieko graduates
    Equal or more girls ranking in elections next year
    S5, KII5 and E4 get delayed again

    For me, it's not about Churi Grad, but another member in her team coming grad. I don't know who, but S losing Pen and E losing for Nan.

    Hopes:

    I hope SKE tries something new on one of their singles, or comes out with a really big song next year...something like what Okie Dokie was for me when I first heard it. 2013 was good though, even if the last single was said to sell a little less.

    I want to see the group increase with more popular members like in the last election, and maybe even see Jurina move up even higher now that Yuko has graduated. Akarin staying in senbatsu would be great, or another member making it in as well.

    SKE gets more opportunities to shine on another new show.

    Fears:

    Rena graduates...which would be devastating since she's such an important figure in the group for me. She's like SKE's version of Yuko, she covers a lot of the group's qualities and personality at the front. With Yuko graduating, I feel like this could be a sign of bigger members starting to want to graduate on top. Even if Jurina were still there, SKE would not be the same without her.

    SKE loses any more future aces, preventing them from being able to have a next gen line-up


    Predictions:

    SKE will probably level out in sales, maybe dipping a little lower than before, but still right about the same area that they've been at

    Some major graduations for sure, possibly Churi with how things are going with her, and some other members who have achieved possibly everything they can. There will still be members like Akarin and Kaotan that I feel still have a ways to go before reaching graduation, maybe even a few years.

    Management giving opportunities to Aya on their own? Impossible!

    Hopes
    - EbiFriday Season 2
    - Ayachan ranks UG center again or enters top 16, recognized by management as a front girl
    - A-side centered by someone not WMatsui, preferably 4/5th gen (Mizuho?)
    - More 4 and 5th gen in senbatsu; Madoka, Harutamu, Mizuho etc
    - Concurrency taken from Minarun and given to a girl I like
    - At least 2 teams get new original stages
    - No new gen, or a very small one like less than five
    - Rena ranks higher than J
    - E's captaincy given back to Madoka, Rena gets a "general manager" position
    - Rena doesn't graduate, or at least waits until the very end of the year like Yuko
    - B-sides in singles have lineups that aren't senbatsu-focused (undergirls, team songs etc)
    - Push for Egochan and Harutamu
    - More A-sides like Utsukushii and Escape, 3 singles with an overall high quality
    - More opportunities for girls to display their hidden talents
    - Another tour in summer/fall

    Fears
    - Only S gets a new stage
    - Singles are a WMatsui fest, no hint of change at center positions
    - Management puts Aya in the back of everything

    Predictions
    - Jurina becoming more & more focused on AKB, possibly a full transfer
    - Graduations from popular/senbatsu girls
    - Rion makes senbatsu, Uha promoted to S
    - Lots of girls rank again, but last year's newly ranked non-senbatsu girls will see a fall
    - Sales are in 500-600k range, with the summer single (RH ticket) having the highest sales

    Hopes :
    Shiba grows a pair and finally kicks her out to make E the perfect team it should be [clap]

    Alright that's not the most positive thing to write, but that's an honest wish of mine.
    With Yuko's graduation and AKB headless, I feel like changes ahead will be much bigger than we could foresee. Jurina immediately comes to mind. Management has proved they wanted her in K no matter what those past two years (even though she barely perform there) and now that the team has lost its Captain... [wonder]
    They might as well decide to take in other popular and/or promising members.
    I don't like the prospect at all and that's why I'm trying not to think too much about it.

    I'm sorry. Why do most of you fear that Rena will graduate? Did she say something about it in the past? Please tell me. Thanks :)

    ^ Well she talks a lot about wanting to develop her own name and her future goals as an actress etc. So I guess it causes rumors/fears that she might graduate.

    Personally I think there's at least 2 years or so before she graduates, especially since she has the role of captain now.
