    - Matsumura and Yamashita out of fukujin
    - no Maiyan, Ikuta or Minami graduation
    - Yakubo Mio gets in senbatsu
    - no pushed 4th generation center - I would rather prefer 3-4 4th generation members in senbatsu
    - Yuuki center

    Fears :

    - Minami out of senbatsu
    - pushed 4th generation center with no other member making senbatsu
    - the above-mentioned graduations

    kiichan back and miria finally makes senbatsu
    4th gen song around summer single
    kubo fukujin or at least back to senbatsu even 3rd row / center preferably 3rd single
    stop the 3rd gen senbatsu push and only keep the top 5-6 members in
    forget center, just give me another Ikuchan solo
    go back inside the studio for next nogibingo (4th gen bingo if possible)
    if not, i want 1st gen vs 2nd gen vs 3rd gen vs 4th gen battle

    Fears:
    ikuchan the next big name to graduate

    Prediction:
    asuka solo or w-center
    maiyan graduation
    more graduation, at least 8
    not all 3rd gen will enter senbatsu (likely, reno, mukai, ayati)
    5th album, all 4 generation to have a song
    if we know management too well, they will airdrop a 4th gen/s whether senbatsu, fukujin or center
