    I wonder if their sponsor backed out or something and that's why they didn't really do that much?

    Koike Yuuka was right next to Madoka when Baito debuted, so it was weird to not see her around. It's now explained :( Their activity on the group was, indeed, pretty weird. They had a bunch of members and a minority of them actually appeared on something. And temporary members naturally back off fans. Nobody wants to get attached to someone who they know it will leave the group soon. But maybe we will have some sort of announcement on the performance, let's see.

    I feel like I can sum up the entire existence of baito 48 as *shrug*

    Kind of a dumb idea, adding soooo many members because someone gave them money for it but then not really promoting them at all and calling them "part time" so it's clear they aren't real members. Didn't seem bound for success.

    Yes, it was quite a dumb idea :^^;: Add a bunch of members displaying zero information about them and making 1/5 of this girls occasionally perform one song at the theater. At least with Mariri, for example, she appeared on AKBINGO, had a coupling song, performed once with Team 4 etc. Create a video for each member or something Baito, is not that hard. A bunch of the girls were "meh", indeed, but they had a couple of ones that could suceed.

    "But maybe we will have some sort of announcement on the performance, let's see", like I said on my other post.

    AKB needs to start thinking things through and not agreeing to whatever someone who offers them money wants. All these temporary members who are just advertisements (the otona AKB thing, now this) who join up only to get kicked out pretty quickly. It's a miracle Team 8 has worked out as well as they have, though if Toyota decides to pull the sponsorship money, I'm sure they will be reworked too.

    Or here's an idea, if AKB already has too much going on to pay for it and they have to take all these sponsorship deals, maybe they should stop adding so many girls? Or not make more sister groups to further divide their market share?

    Or maybe people should just enjoy the group and quit bitching about stuff for a while.

    I'm surprised by this, since I thought this would be a permanent thing, but I'm guessing that was never the plan. It was just for the initial hype, just like Mariri. Also makes sense why they chose girls as old as 25.

    The photos from their last performance look so sad :( I'm very curious about their performance, I hope is available on LOD.

    It would interesting to know the members who declared they will join the Draft or the NGT48 auditions (I think the text above says something about it, but I know zero Japanese so...:^^;:). I know Madoka will join the audition for NGT48 (yay <3). And I'm glad that they will go straight to the 3rd round on the Draft.

    For reference, the age from new groups are usually very low. NMB48 had a average of 14.7 years old (Oldest member being 18 years old) when they debuted, while HKT48 had 13.8 (Oldest member being 15 years old). The Draft included older members on 2013 (Including a 24 years old girl - and also Sally, who was 20 at the time). Here's a list with the age of each member:
    13
    Isshiki Rena
    Kusakabe Aina
    Seiji Reina
    Mega Yako
    14
    Ohno Ayano
    Katsumata Saori
    Takagi Mashiro
    Takahashi Kira
    15
    Saito Rina
    Sawaki Saya
    Matsuoka Hana
    16
    Ogino Yuka
    17
    Araki Minami
    Kataigi Madoka
    Shibata Yui
    Takeuchi Misaki
    Fujie Momoko
    18
    Umezawa Mayuka
    Ebisawa Megumi
    Kamitani Saya
    19
    Araki Rinka
    Kawaguchi Mami
    Kinoshita Mayu
    Nakagawa Rina
    Narimatsu Misa
    Nishigata Marina
    Fukui Arisa
    Matsumoto Nodoka
    20
    Kikuchi Tomomi
    Kinoshita Suzuka
    Chida Yumeno
    Nakamura Yuuka
    Yashiro Kana
    Yamauchi Aki
    21
    Akasaka Misaki
    22
    Kawamura Maho
    Kurosawa Ayaka
    Suzuki Yumin
    Matsuura Kaho
    24
    Iikura Saori
    Ogata Honomi
    Nagasaka Arisa
    25
    Saeki Mika
    Chiyoda Yui

    So yeah, I realistically don't think we will see most of them again :(

    I hope they accept Yumin, Yuuka, Marina and/or Mayu on the Draft. Yui is pretty cool but 25 years old is a little bit too much, unfortunately. Yumin needs to be on something, seriously. Form your own group or something haha

    For NGT I would love to see Madoka, Yuka, Kira (<3) and Saori there.

    Marina would be great on Nogizaka46, but I don't think this will happen...

    Chiyoda Yui was my favourite from the first time I saw her as a zenza girl, she's just so darn sweet but yeah 25 years old means there's no chance she'd be taken on full time anyway....but she'd make a great "older sister" to look after a new group of girls. Suzuki Yumin seemed fairly popular with the theater fans but again 22 means it's unlikely even if she is pretty good. Ogina Yuka reminds me of fresh lemon for some reason, she seems kind of weird and quirky...only not as irritating.

    Kinoshita Mayu struck me as by far the best performer and confident mc, I'd love to see her in the draft or audtitions.

    Baito AKB had a center? That's news! :^^;:

    I wonder if they'd go with her as NGT's center by default, but seeing she'd be 18 by the time they debut I find it unlikely.
    I wouldn't be surprised if she made it to the group though.
