    Hopes:
    - Teams SIII and TIII formed from the get go.
    - They release their debut single before the year ends.
    - Kahotaru makes a splash in the SSK (be it ranking just on the prelims or actually getting a spot).

    Fears:
    - They are as slow to debut as NGT and nothing really happens this year.

    Trinu has the same hopes/fears as me, so I am just bouncing off their ideas.

    Hopes:
    >If we do get a Debut Single, I would like for it to be WCenter, but with the new members, put the "Seasoned" members in the front on the side
    >BIASED HOPE: Cuca is appointed "lead" Choreographer
    >BIASED HOPE: Please, for the love of everything Idols: Pirate or Sailor Uniforms for every day wear. Like the uniforms NGT has are "daily wear."
    >Two Teams Debut with very little Kenkyuusei
    >Someone, anyone make a "splash" during SSK; pretty posters coming from this

    Fears:
    >Girls quitting before Reveal/Debut
    >Not being able to debut because their theater isn't clear/finished

    Hopes
    - They use lots of SKE songs and stage debut with either Ramune or Seifuku
    - Go for a summer/sea concept but no bikinis! (just once would be ok)
    - Okita Ayaka gets a kennin position soon or later, maybe to lead team TIII?

    Predictions
    - If she stays as captain, Naachan will get transferred to STU at the next shuffle

    Hopes
    * They push a girl to the front line that wasn't popular at all aside of those who have fans already.
    * Cuca becomes center
    * the SR girls don't get pushed as center
    * some sailor moon references somewhere
    * the teather will be opened soon and they soon have a good debut single
    * original (or at least a never-performed C/W stage)

    Predictions
    * the theater will take time
    * the first single will be released in 1-1,5 years
    * they will never have an original stage
    * A1 & B3

    Fears

    * predictions come true, or turn out worse

    Ooooh I hope CUCA is center. Just my hope lol kitoharu I think that's her name. Maybe the Nakai Rika or Sakura of the group. This is exciting

    Hopes: CUCA ranks in this years election

    Hopes:
    • They will have finished STU48's theatre within this year!
    • They get to regularly perform on the theatre next year, because doing that this year is close to impossible.
    • Give more spotlight to those who didn't participate in the SR event, but have great idol potential.
    • More power to Cuca, lol. Though that's a bit ironic to what I just said in the previous bullet.
    • Single within Late 2017. (Hopefully it's not a love song. T_T)
    Fears:
    • Early graduations
    • No original stages
    • Cliche and Unoriginal single
    Predictions:
    • Management may change their mind and make STU perform in a theatre near the coast, instead of at the coast instead. LOL. (this is more of a fear though.)

    Hopes
    - Cuca gets to show off her skills.
    - awesome first single with fun, energetic song with cute sailor costumes.
    - A dance focused unit for Cuca to be in.
    - They go as over the top as possible with the ocean theme, I want sailors, pirates, mermaids, anything else sea themed.
    Fears
    - Cuca graduates early for some reason.
    - Cuca pushed to the very back.
    Predictions
    - I don't do predictions, I only hope and fear. :)

    Hopes:
    - First single released in Fall 2017
    - A girl from STU that is not Okada or Sashihara ranks on the first day results of the election
    - Various Centers similar to NGT

    Fears
    - They're only promoted on AKB-related shows
    - AKS focuses on heavily promoting only 1 girl

    Hopes:

    - Former ASH girls will be pushed! ('Cause they looks more experienced and confident in compare with others)
    - I know this wont come true but hope is hope, just my wish : All Of Them can sing at least in fairish level. There is no one that is unable to sing
    - Another hope that is unlikely to be true : A brand new different style of music for them. Please don't use same old tune that is applied for other 48 groups. Some of good vocals will has solo lane in a song. It's hard to dance and sing in the same to. So i expect this group will focus on singing. Don't lipsinging
    - Good music.

    Fear:

    - My favorites don't get pushed (especially Imamura Mitsuki who're really shiny and having more experience being idol)
    - Boring music , nothing seems to be fresh or brand-new. Same old tune, same old style.
    - Scandals
    - Bad Management.

    _____________________________________________________________

    For me , i don't fear of early graduation. Cause if they can't catch up idol industry, they better leave.

    Hopes:
    Mori Kaho will center STU one day.
    Cuca will become a senbatsu member.
    Their songs are not a total garbage.
    Fears:
    Sashi and Naachan will hog too much attention from the other girls.
    STU will end up plain and boring.

    Here's my take on these kind of threads:
    Hopes
    • Kahotaru passes the first audition for STU48.
    • Kahotaru passes the second audition for STU48.
    • Kahotaru ends first in the STU48 Showroom audition.
    • Kahotaru passes the third audition for STU48.
    • Kahotaru manages to join STU48 as first generation member.
    • Kahotaru becomes senbatsu member of a STU48 song.
    • Kahotaru manages to sell out a handshake block.
    • Kahotaru manages to sell out her handshake line.
    • Kahotaru manages to sing a Side B song in a single.
    • Kahotaru manages to center a Side B song in a single.
    • Kahotaru manages to sing a Side A song in a single.
    • Kahotaru manages to center a Side A song in a single.
    • Kahotaru manages to rank in Upcoming Girls.
    • Kahotaru becomes regular in a radio program.
    • Kahotaru becomes regular in a TV program.
    • Kahotaru becomes full member of STU48.
    • Kahotaru becomes sub-captain of a STU48 team.
    Not that many fears, though, as I'm pretty sure how STU48 will go, typical 48G idol group with bubblegum pop songs and struggling to sell singles cause of location, just like NGT48. Some girls will graduate, some girls will stay, some scandals will appear, etc.

    Sailor outfits! Or pirates or mermaids or something. If they ignore this then I'm blocking, deleting and throwing them off board XD

    I hope that they don't give priority to the girls who are already 'polished' (Showroom, Ash etc). It's fine to give them equal opportunity, just not biased towards them.

    As much as I love Sasshi and I'm glad she's in the group, I hope she's just there occasionally and it's more Okada being the leading senior (but I hope she leads from the side rather than centre). I think they should guide and support, help the girls grow instead of 'here, we'll be the centres, watch us do it'.

    I hope they release a single this year. Summer would be ideal but that's super close... Also, I know this will probably never happen, but... an original stage XD (Sometime in the next 10 years is acceptable at this rate!)

    Well, they look like temp profile images only for Senbatsu. I mean, I was pretty positive that the NGT girls also had temp profile images with their t-shirts that said NGT48 on them. And they also had their pre-debut outfits as the t-shirt and shorts. :chuffed:

    Hopes:
    - Older members graduate before they get the chance to rank/get pushed because of gravure.
    - 1st Single in the end of this year, or at least it being announced. Senbatsu will include the younger girls instead of the older ones.
    - Hina is pushed as center instead of Yumiko.
    - Ishida Chiho gets pushed and selected to be 1st row in the next Senbatsu.
    - Younger members get to be in the front instead of the older members.

    Predictions:
    - Yumiko, Kaho and Hina will be pushed.
    - Mitsuki is the only girl from ASH who gets pushed/selected for things.
    - Stage performances are pushed at least until Spring 2018, or a "winter break" in their performances.
    - Everyone stays Kenkyuusei at least this year.
    - No one ranks, in the Prelims or actual event.

    Fears:
    - Young girls graduating instead of older girls.
    - Ishida Chiho gets left behind with Cuca.
