The Keyakizaka46 Message app started up in the August of 2018. In short terms, it's mobame, a subscription service where you subscribe to a member and receive messages (text, photo, video, voice) for 300 jpy/month. You can also send letters to the members for 120 jpy/letter (as of May 2018). You can find a guide to how to sign up if you're an ios user here. It might be different for android users. You can download the app through the app store or from the site (or QooApp, etc.). Personally, I have an android smartphone and linked my account for the mobame app to my Twitter account. Nonetheless, so you've downloaded the app. But, what next? Naturally, it's to subscribe to the members you want to subscribe to. However, sometimes, it's difficult to decide who to subscribe to. You might subscribe to your oshimen. You might not have a specific oshimen. You might want to get lots of messages, or you might look forward to selfies and videos. What members do you recommend subscribing to? What were your experiences subscribing to ______ member? I want to ask those questions so I can make up my mind on who to subscribe to. And, it'd probably be helpful information for anyone who has an intention of subscribing to a member's mobame but is stuck. I'll start off. Although some of the info is a bit outdated since I sometimes just sub to a member for a month and check out another member. Spoiler: Shida Manaka Mobame Overall, Manaka is one of the members who doesn't send much. Unfortunately, due to poor health and other situations, she has gone on hiatus, so subscribing to her mobame at the moment would be mostly symbolic and if you wanted to send a letter. November 2017 (from Nov. 2 to end of month): Photos (7), Videos (2) December 2017 (start of month to Jan. 1): Photos (6) Her photos include maybe 50% selfies/pictures with members, 10% handwritten messages, 40% misc. items These numbers are more of a gut feeling type estimate though. March 2018: Photos (1) **the picture of Techi with melon pan April 2018: 0 messages May 2018: 1 apology message about the hiatus Spoiler: Oda Nana Mobame The highlight of Oda Nana's mobame for me was her emoji usage. Quite a lot of members send some sort of "good morning" "good night" type messages, but Oda Nana changed up the emojis for her greetings, some emojis being rather funny. She talks about all sorts of things. Other members, book reccs, the events that are happening at the moment, food, etc. November 2017: Photos (35), Video (2) Oda Nana's selfies were also really great. There was a pretty large amount of selfies. She also posted pictures of items and food, etc. December 2017: Photos (22), Video (6) Spoiler: Nagahama Neru Mobame Nov. 2017: Photos (~13), Video (~5) Dec. 2017: Photos (14), Video (6), Voice (1) Photos include selfies, pics with members, misc. items. Her text messages have a Neru-tension to them. I don't know how to describe it, but Neru's mobame was pretty satisfying. Spoiler: Ishimori Nijika Mobame Nijika is actually great, so everyone should love her. That's the type of thing I think sometimes. The mentioned below is information for April-May 2018. She sends extremely cute selfies (Nijika in pajamas is really cute), pictures of food, some pictures with other members, and dog pictures. She also sends some videos. Since Hyokkorihan is trending in Japan, she's sent videos of her doing that as well as some other things. Her text messages are the daily life anecdote type. They're interesting and cute. (She mentioned her relationship with Suzumoto, something I didn't know before). Similar to Fuu-chan, in Nijika's mobame, you get to see a more excited Nijika than on tv, letting you see another side of this girl. Spoiler: Ozeki Rika Mobame Ozeki style~! She sent a lot of daily life interesting anecdote type things that didn't fail to amuse. (There was a funny one about a boiled egg, Yuipon, and trying to use her head to crack it.) Late Jan-Late Feb, one month period starting 1/25/18: Photos (28) Her pictures included: food, her own cooking, lots of pictures with other members, a few with only herself, a strange tension handwritten message, misc. items. Spoiler: Saitou Fuyuka Mobame Maybe it's that Fuu-chan doesn't really get all that much screen time, but she's surprisingly high tension in her mobame. She uses emojis to refer to members. And, overall, there's some feeling that you're discovering a new side of Fuu-chan. Early March- Early April 2018: Photos (4), Video (1) Spoiler: Imaizumi Yui Mobame I can't count how much she sends. But, I've seen her mobame since around November 2017 if I remember correctly. I can say that she sends a lot, but not too much to the point that it becomes overwhelming. How to say? Zuumin really loves us. Typically around handshake event season, she'll send messages of "Wait for me" "I'm sorry you had to wait" "Thank you for coming," and she'll also upload lots of pictures. It's really nice even for those who aren't able to attend the handshake events as she'll also talk about how she plans to decorate her lane. Zuumin makes origami/poster decorations for the handshake lanes and uploads them frequently. She sends a large amount of pictures, lots of selfies (very cute ones, I might say). And also, pictures of her dog, Happy. You'll end up becoming a Happy-fan from her mobame, I think. Her text messages range through a lot of things. There's the basic handshake event messages, but there's also funny daily anecdotes (muscle training, muscle training), music that she likes, stories about her dog, stories about the past, and long messages where she pours out her emotions and worries. Zuumin apologizes a bit more than I feel like she needs to sometimes. She doesn't send many videos/voice, but she does it once in a while. She used to do a Q&A section, but she's stopped doing that now. However, she tells you a lot about her stuff in her mobame, so you can still find out a lot of interesting things through her mobame. In fact, she talks about some weird things that I doubt would even come up in Q&A. I totally recommend subbing to Zuumin. Spoiler: Koike Minami Mobame Koike's starting sending less since the time that I subscribed to her, so I can't say that this information is really all that accurate right now. However, in January, Koike no Miichan sent a lot. She wrote a Q&A section, which was very detailed. You could find out a lot of interesting new things about Koike, which is one of my favorite things about Q&A sections. Most of her messages were text messages, not so many pictures (although she did send some) She also talked about daily life occurrences that were cute and interesting. (Complaints about Dani, Penguin Big Service Dad stories, etc.) In January, Koike sent a lot though. I couldn't handle that much. She tended to send in chunks, sending a lot at a time while not sending for a short bit. So, it was kind of difficult to finish reading all her anecdotes (even though they were so interesting!). In the end, it took me a week after my subscription ended for me to finish reading all her messages. I don't think that should be a problem anymore as she now sends less (according to the stats). Also, the factors in my inability to handle the amount also included: my mediocre Japanese fluency + limited time to read mobame (I do it on the bus in the morning). Spoiler: Takase Mana Mobame Although Manafi is my Hiragana 1st gen oshimen, I don't really have much to say. She sent lots of selfies, some videos, and a good amount of pictures with other members. She also sent messages (text and picture) that soothed my ManaMemi shipping heart. However, Manafi sometimes also posted her mobame photos to her blog. **information relevant from March 2018 Spoiler: Kosaka Nao Mobame In general, you can say that the Hiragana 2nd members send a lot because they don't have their own personal blog. Nao sends a lot as well, but not enough that you would get overwhelmed. She typically sends messages everyday. She talks about daily life, food, lots of food, what events are going on at the moment, and she has a Q&A section. The Q&A section is currently on question 121, but she hasn't really talked about that recently. (May 2018) She sends more text messages than photos/videos/voice, but she does send all three of the other things now and then. They're really wonderful. However, I would say that the charm point of Nao's mobame is her Q&A. You'd never think that Nao's actually a bit of a little glutton character from the cool way she appears sometimes, but... she talked about food a lot. It's kind of a self-perpetuating cycle since the food talk leads to food questions which leads to food talk, but it's definitely cute and endearing. Overall, the ones I recommend the most are Zuumin and Nao.
