    First time posting in this kind of thread. Couldn't post last year unfortunately haha.

    Hopes
    • Techi gets rest by not being center, but still has a prominent position. (Probably 2nd row center, similar to Akanen in Fukyouwaon)
    • Oda Nana's variety role improves. It's probably just me, I love her really, but her humor is getting really dry in recent KeyaKake.
    • More girls in fashion shows and exclusive contracts!
    • Singles with same quality as 1st-4th (let's just exclude kaze ni..)
    • More exposure for HiraKeya, finally announce as a separate group.
    • More front row for deserving members (aka Nijika, Satoshi, Fuyuka, Koike)
    • Separate show for HiraKeya
    • BETTER. DRAMA.
    • Someone acts again in a movie! (NIJIKAAAAA)
    • New Center
    Fears
    • 21-senbatsu is disturbed, replaces some Kanji with Hiragana
    • Graduation of Uemura / Satoshi / Yone
    • Drama similar to Zankoku. We do not speak of this drama ever again.
    Predictions
    • First graduation in early March/April (probably from HiraKeya or said members in Fears)
    • Kobayashi Yui / Suzumon center
    • Techi has a one month break or so

    Hopes
    • Techi FINALLY gets rest and doesn't center the 6th Single
    • Keyaizaka46 Eigo

    Fears
    • Techi continues to center all the singles causing her to graduation because of health reasons
    • Popularity/Sales drop if Techi doesn't center a single

    Predictions
    • Techi centers 7th Single and Double Center's 8th Single with Neru
    • 2nd Album Announced at the end of the Year (Which will release in January 2019)
    • First Graduations happen
    • More Photobook (Techi being one of them)

    At the end of the day,month, year its all about the $$$ for SME.
    hopes:
    im wrong
    fears:
    singles sales tank (sorry thats an english word)
    predictions:
    based on the last 6 months this group is in serious trouble...i believe nothing short of a major shakeup will keep this 'group' together ('group' meaning torizaka46 for those that remember).
    i know this sounds trollish but im wanting to be realistic.

    And now for this years!

    Hopes
    - Either Kanji and Hiragana start to release double A-sides, or they start a senbatsu system to include Hiragana members. Hiragana need to be recognized as Keyakizaka too.
    - Both Kanji and Hiragana develop images that contrast each other, but not to the point where they only do that one type of concept.
    - They continue to have unit's and Kanji/Gana mixed units
    - We start to see separate "Fukujin" for Kanji and Hiragana.
    - All the members get a hard earned break whenever needed, and sort out any problems that might still be in the air from 2017, especially Techi.
    - New photobooks from Kanji members (Risa, Yuipon, Shiori, and Habu) and Hiragana members (Satoshi, Kyoko, and Mei)
    - Management continue to allow the girls to have a say in how they want their choreography/concerts/songs/mv's to be.
    - More interaction with Nogizaka members, they both hold the 46 name but they barely interact.
    - By the end of 2018, every member would have sold out at least 1 slot in any HS event for a single.

    Fears
    - Our first graduation.
    - A scandal.
    - Being roped into the 48 group shenanigans. Let's keep Sakamichi48 a rarity please.
    - Hiragana get left in the dark for yet another year.
    - Another "summer event" where the girls are overworked in a such space of time.
    - Less popular members of Hiragana don't have a rise in popularity.
    - Keyaki members begin to get complacent with the way things are going. I hope all of them continue to push for the best.

    Predictions
    - Keyakizaka46 will show us a new story.

    Graduations
    Graduations?
    Overworking for the girls

    A new unit! Conformed by Koike, Mona, Neru, Risa, Zumiko, Oda and Fuu (yeah, the 98's girls)

    - Get Techi some rest from being center, she seems like she has some things to sort out @.@
    - Hiragana's own variety show!!

    - Imaizumi fully returns, miss her on KeyaKake >.<

    - Manafi and Mao gets better handshake sales.

    Fears:
    - Graduations.
    - Techi continue loosing the spark in her eyes that she used to have.
    - Kanji being too dependent on Techi being center that they might collapse under pressure when she isn't there.
    - Hiragana still continue being in an 'unknown' position.

    Predictions:
    - Center change and even a non-21 members senbatsu.
    - Hiragana gets more promotions.
    - Kanji vs Hiragana (friendly) rivalry will happen.
