    I watched the 11th gen introduction show! I'll write some infos and opinions about each member (this will be long ^^).

    001.jpg 002.jpg 003.jpg 004.jpg 005.jpg 006.jpg 007.jpg

    Omura Anzu: She wants to be a global idol, she likes dancing, and her special skills are her smile and her funny face which she both did on stage.
    Shinohara Kyoka: She can cook, she worked at a yakiniku place or something (it made the SKE members excited lol), she's from Kansai, her special skill is to imitate characters voices. After her intro, Suda asked her who's her oshi (because she heard from a staff that she is Kyoka's oshi lol) Kyoka said that she loves Suda for her smile and her love for her fans.
    Sugimoto Riina: She likes making sweets like cookies, she tried making macarons once but it didn't go well. Her special skills are cooking and doing a long jump so she did a long jump which was cool! and then they made Minarun try it too... XD her hair got stuck in her outfit lol!
    Hara Yuune: She is the oldest member (20 years old). Her dream is becoming a reliable adult. Suda told a story about Yune, she said that the staff said that she is kinda ponkotsu, that other members usually do normal poses for the full body pictures but Yune did penguin poses and things like this, so cute lol. Yune's special skill is balloon art, so she did it on stage, she made a toy poodle, she said that she can also do flowers etc. This is a nice skill. She's really cute!
    Morimoto Kurumi: The members noticed that she has long legs, and her special skills is model walk, so she did it on stage.
    Yamamura Sakura: They mentioned that she was already an idol before, so they asked her why she joined SKE to be idol again, and she said that she wanted to be a top idol. it made Suda happy that SKE is considered top idol but Minarun joked that it's not the case lol. Sakura's special skill is drawing fast so they gave her 10 seconds to draw and she did a gorilla but everyone was confused since it didn't really look like one lol Suda commented that Sakura's list of favorite foods is super long XD They mention here that 3 members, Anzu/Riina/Sakura have the same birthday on September 20 but on different years. That's an interesting coincidence o_o
    Wakita Aoi: They talked about her height (150cm) and how she will be the shortest member without counting Minarun but Aoi said that she is still growing (she's 13 lol), they asked her and she said that in the past year she grew 7,5cm? o_o Her special skill is karate and she did a bit of it!

    008.jpg 009.jpg 010.jpg 011.jpg 012.jpg 013.jpg 014.jpg

    After this they did a part where the girls get to ask questions to the members who were there: the general captain Makiko (MC here), and the team captains Chikako, Minarun and Suda.

    Omura Anzu: She asked advices to have fit bodies like SKE members, which made the girls laugh especially Minarun who asked her if she's sure that it's all SKE members who have fit bodies lol she said Suda is a pro at this and can answer. Suda said she still has the same waist size as debut and can wear her debut skirts, and she said something like they shouldn't do diets where they don't eat anything but they should exercise. Minarun joked that if it doesn't work then they can come to Team KII that she called Team round lol.
    Shinohara Kyoka: She asked how to 'sparkle' as idol like the SKE members, they told her that she shouldn't worry about it and it will happen with time naturally, Suda said she had the same worry, but that Chikako was good since debut or something. So Chikako gave advice and said they'll learn to be cuter and do make-up and things that will make them 'sparkle'.
    Sugimoto Riina: She asked how do they remember a lot of dances, Suda said that she had this problem but she thought that if other girls can do it then she can also do it, and Minarun said that she learns by associating with lyrics/words? and she said that everyone finds their way eventually.
    Hara Yuune: She's from Fukuoka so she asked for food recommendations in Nagoya and they did, they said she can also recommend them food from Fukuoka. They mentioned how she was holding her toy poodle balloon the whole time, that is so cute lol (and she continued holding it until the very end of the stream :3).
    Morimoto Kurumi: She asked if they search their names online and they said that yes, they all do, then they talked about getting hate comments. Suda said that if it happens, that she thinks about fans or something. Minarun said, the real people like the fans in the audience, they don't say things like this, so when she saw hate online, she thinks that it's just something that is only on the internet and not in real life. She said SKE members have strong mental. She said if they ever get sad over these things, they can always talk to their seniors in SKE.
    Yamamura Sakura: She said that she loves going out to eat and asked if they ever disguise themselves to not get recognized when they go out. Suda was the only who raised her hand haha. Chikako said that now there are masks so people don't recognize, and she said something like actually she wouldn't wind it and she would probably go greet fans herself if she saw them lol. Suda said that she likes eating ramen alone, and usually she will wear a cap, that she can also wear glasses if she doesn't want to be recognized etc.
    Wakita Aoi: She said that she can't sing and asked how to sing well like them, the members reactions to this lol! They covered their faces XD They said that none of them there can sing and Suda said that at her first recording, she was told that her singing is very bad, but she said there's no need to worry about it. Makiko said that they don't sing alone but together with others so no one will notice anyway haha. Suda said what matters is the expressions and to convey the feelings to fans. then she and Aoi did thumbs up to each other, cute!

    After this, they did a part where they read questions from Twitter. They actually show the hashtag timeline on screen lol. They had a hard time to find questions XD At this part, Minarun mentioned that she noticed that the fans in the audience already seem like they're starting to like the 11th gen, there is even someone with a '11th gen oshi' uchiwa, that the girls should keep doing their best and they will easily get fans. She said this in a funnier way while teasing the audience, you can see in the video XD

    They asked Riina about which senior is different than the impression that she had before, she said that Minarun seems like she would be mature, but surprisingly it's not the case. haha.

    They couldn't find good questions on the screen so in the end Suda selected a question asking if they eat their croquettes with sauce lol and also what is their favorite onigiri filling, they really made them answer one by one XD

    Every girl said a message in the end about how they will try their best etc. then every captain said something, Chikako said that she's glad to see them join and the time they'll spend with their same gen members will be precious. Minarun said that everyone in SKE is nice, the members, staff and fans, they're all kind, so she wishes for the girls to enjoy being idols and have fun with fans. Suda talked about self-confidence and loving yourself, that they should try to be the kind of idols that they would want to support if they're fans. and Makiko hopes that they can shine in the group and grow in theater, and asked for everyone's support.

    That's it! This was fun to watch and I think all the girls are nice, my favorite is Yune! She is so cute! I also like Sakura, and Riina is cute too, they're all nice. I hope they'll do well in SKE. Personally I like that there's only 7 of them, it's easier to know them, and SKE actually has a good amount of members so having 7 members is ideal. I also wanted to say, the 4 captains, they all did well but especially Suda and Minarun were great! I like how Suda always mentions details and infos, and Minarun is so funny! Both of them also gave good advices especially Suda (she talked a lot). I'm glad Minarun could be part of this before her graduation. They did great! it was a good introduction show ^^

    SKE 11th gen are now using the TikTok account of SKE kenkyuusei (previously used for past SKE kenkyuusei)
    https://www.tiktok.com/@ske48.apprentice.officia
    I wonder why the username says "officia" lol I guess it was too long and they couldn't have write "official" XD

    The videos that they uploaded so far...

    Yune, Anzu & Kyoka short intro video with their names and ages - This is at 199k plays and already became the most played TikTok on the whole channel!
    Anzu, Kyoka, Riina & Sakura little dance / Sakura's individual video (with the same song/dance) / Riina's individual video (with some informations about her)
    Probably they'll upload the individual videos of other members next.




    if the video does not show watch the video here

    This is from two weeks ago on the same day as the 11th gen intro, they did an "after talk" with Saito Makiko and 3 of the 11th gens: Yune, Anzu and Kyoka! The others couldn't be here because of age restrictions. The girls were still nervous and a bit awkward here haha. They said that even though they were nervous but they had a lot of fun during the intro. They were impressed by the aura of their seniors, Yune said that Makiko has a strong captain aura. They were also impressed by the theater, and the door at the theater (it looks really good tbh).

    They were asked their first impressions of each other, Kyoka said that Yune & Anzu feel very adult/mature. Anzu said that Yune has a ponkotsu image and Yune said that Anzu is good at making poses. Makiko said that it's still the very beginning and with time, they'll know each other better. She asked them if there's anything that they want to say, and Yune said that she isn't ponkotsu lol then they talked again about her penguin poses (but they didn't show it on the video of their photoshoot >.<).

    Makiko asked if they have any stories from the auditions. Yune said that she forgot the lyrics and she thought that it was over for her. She also told a funny story where the judge on the right asked her a question but she was looking at the left side and was told that it's the other side, something like this lol. Kyoka said that she wanted to smile but she end up smiling too much and looking awkward. Anzu talked about not doing well during the freestyle part in dancing but then she did well.

    They also answered some questions from fans. For their favorite ramen; they all answered tonkotsu (these food questions XD). Their favorites animals; Kyoka said deep-sea fish (this got some reactions since it's so random lol), Yune said cats and she has one since elementary school, Anzu said that she's allergic to animals but she loves cats. Their recent 'myboom' (what they're addicted to); Kyoka said tapioca drinks, Yune hesitated then said that she just loves sleeping and can sleep anytime even when she's nervous like the day before, and Anzu talked about diets (not sure what she said). For which senior they want to talk to; Kyoka said Makiko, Yune said Ruuchan because she is from Kyushu, and Anzu said Oka because she loves her visuals and dancing and she admires her. For which colors they want for their lightstick; Kyoka said light blue, Yune said pink and yellow, Anzu said purple.

    That's it :chuffed:

    Backstage footage for the first performance of all 6 11th gen members.
    Good footage to learn about their relationship/personality.
    It was outdoor and raining too. Must be a challenge.

    The full performance itself was a month ago. Link (via @Mana's post in Yune's thread):

    The 11th gen account on Twitter posted some photos for the end of the year and the new year! They thanked fans for the 8 previous months, and all the things they experienced (outdoor performances, theater stages, concerts, events, TV shows, radio...) and they asked to keep supporting in 2023 ^^

    001.jpg 002.jpg 003.jpg 004.jpg 005.jpg

    I know I mostly talk about Yune (haha), but I actually like all of the girls in this gen, like Sakura, Riina and all of them. I want to know them more! Let's keep supporting them this year <3

    Age difference between SKE oldest and youngest kenkyuusei (Yune and Miyabi, respectively) are almost exactly 9 years. Funny to see haha

    In one month SKE Kenkyuusei (11ki and 12ki) will revive S3rd. Will be the second time SKE kks will perform it, first time was in 2014 with most of the performers being 6ki girls.

    I'm looking forward for it, S3 is one of my favorite AKB48Group stages and I'm anticipating to see how will the units be like. I think it's almost certain that Yune will be in Ookami to Pride under Kuumin's position, otherwise I only visualize they putting her to perform Onna no Ko no Dairokkan. Also wondering who are they putting to perform Kareha no Station...boring af song, but still a solo song and lucky's the girl who they will select to perform it.
