    Oh well... let's review las year...
    Well.. for 2018...
    Hopes:
    -New winds blow for SKE... leaded by new members with new fans (the older fans are just simply leaving now)

    Fears:
    -I have no fear, because i have nothing that i wound be surprise to me.
    -Well... i actually have fear for Tani Marika suffering a mental collapse after ranking out of ssk...

    Predictions:
    -Obata Yuna's push will continue... and actually will kinda work!
    -2 singles per year will continue, the second single of 2018 will feature a new center.. kind of. (probably a double center)
    -Something kinda WTF will happen in the group that will change some stuff. (make a bet)
    -Tani Marika will totally send to oblivion... :cold:

    Hopes
    1. Increased Team S prioritization
    2. Uchiyama Mikoto finally ranks!
    3. Nao gets a collab with other Avex utahimes such as Beverly, Mishina Ruka, etc.
    4. New TV show
    Fears
    1. Avex shafts them for lol (everyone lashed out at them for abusing autotune)
    2. Kaotan graduates
    3. Wada Aina graduates. She's in her last year of high school, and she might enter a university where there will be so much work to the point that she can't continue her idol activities.
    4. Nacchi graduates. She will be in her last year of high school next year, and who knows what university will she get in.
    5. Jurina graduates. She's the last original member, and her generation is one of the most cursed generations in 48G.
    6. Mass graduations from gens 2-5.
    Predictions
    1. Three singles for 2018
    2. 2nd Nagoya Dome solo concert

    Oshimen:
    Matsui Jurina
    Hope:
    . Nagoya Dome Solo Concert, one night will be enough (also I suspected Churi might not graduate until they achieve this again)
    . An actual variety show (Musubi is good but not really what casual fan looks for, something like AKBingo)
    . 2 singles with better sales (3 singles is a moot point by now)
    . Studio releases for Team S and KII stages, which will lead to new stages (hopefully)
    . Team S changes their mind set or whatever is wrong with them now and be strong again
    . The Yunana's push works and Rara not getting pushed to the side
    . Nao centering something that is not a team song (a B-side collab is good at this point)
    . Nakki becomes a senbatsu stapler
    . Mikotti ranks, 6th gen has a strong showing, 7 and 8 get new members into the ranks, members already in senbatsu rank up, Jurina wins the thing for good.
    . More outside works for everyone

    Fear:
    . No big concerts
    . 1 single
    . Team S stay unrelevent
    . Rara getting further shafted
    . Nao graduates (at this point I am actually worried about her more than Churi)
    . Jurina not winning SSK and not getting much outside works
    . 7D2 and 8 becoming content with just being theatre girls.
    . Mass graduations of young memers

    Prediction:
    . Something good for the 10th year anniversary
    . Jurina wins the SSK (I will try to contribute myself too)
    . Yunana centering the next single

    Hope(s)
    - Jurina wins SSK (it's been 852123 years)
    - The graduated members show up for the 10th year anniversary (specially Rena-chan :cute:)
    - Get a variety show like the Ebi-Series.
    - Sales go higher.
    - Management continues to heavily push the new gens and drafts.
    - Continue pushing Yunana, girl has potential.

    Personally, idk a lot of the members now, so I hope I can get to know them more, but it's quite hard when I can't watch shows w/o subs @.@

    Fear(s)
    - Graduations. Graduations and Graduations.
    - Jurina doesn't win SSK (I will flip a table if she doesn't win, she isnt even on my oshimen list.)
    - They go on a stagnation, or worse, continue going downhill.

    Prediction(s)
    - Shuffle.
    - Jurina will keep taking the support role in SKE like Rena was in SKE for a while.
    - Some of the older members (Dasu, Kaotan, Churi, Sally etc.) graduates. That would terribly hurt SKE as they're mostly the key members of the group.
    - Yunana x Rara (I see that management's trying to build another power combi/pair). Hope they didn't give up on Rara yet.
    - Something unexpected will happen (Just a gut feeling)

    I talk a lot about Sousenkyo, oh well
