Well as everyone should know the motto "Remember always blame the management not the girls", 48G has its ups and down throughout the years (Especially in recent times). These theater managers make big decisions, and some of them were significant history makers and some had their name gone down the drain in history. So I'm just curious what consensus thinks and let's all have a fun discussion about how bad did these people mess up our beloved 48 groups. Feel free to vote your top 3 choices from below or add someone you feel should be honorably mentioned to the list. If you want to spice things up, feel free to put down some comments and reasoning for your choices. (i.e questionable gori pushes, crisis mismanagement, poor marketing strategies, mischievous conducts or simply incompetency etc) The list is according to most recent of each group and their position of year: AKB48: Hosoi Takahiro 2017 - 2019 (5th) Kayano Shinobu 2015 - 2017 (3rd) Yuasa Hiroshi 2013 -2015 (2nd) Togasaki Tomonobu 2005 - 2013, 2013-2015 (1st and 4th) SKE48: Yuasa Hiroshi 2008 - 2013, 2015 - 2019 (1st and 4th) Shiba Tomoya 2013 - 2014 (2nd) Imamura Etsuro 2014 - 2015 (3rd) NMB48: Kaneko Takeshi 2010 - present (1st) HKT48: Sato Kazuya 2011 - 2013 (1st) Ozaki Atsushi + Sashihara Rino 2013 - 2019 (2nd) NGT48: Imamura Etsuro 2015 - 2019 (1st) STU48: Yamamoto Manabu 2017 - present (1st) Other P.S The poll only allows up to 10 different choices, if you want to vote for the two fellows of NGT or STU please PM me or leave a comment down below so I can keep track of the votes. THanks~ P.S 1 vote = 1 beside their name Spoiler: My personal top 3 worst 1. NGT Imamura Etsuro 2015 - 2019. Hands down nuff said. 2. AKB Kayano Shinobu 2015 - 2017. I didn't like this period of AKB which Shinobu was in charge. Starting of with just some of the songs that were produced isn't my cup of tea with the picks of members. Adapting the absurdity of the kennin system which was ended until Hosoi came in. And I didn't agree with her move on allowing the members to refuse the decision of the reshuffled teams and . In general, I just think she wasn't fit for the job because of her close relationship with members, she just couldn't perform her duty as a responsible decision maker. On top of this, many good members decided to graduate during her reign, even though it is indirectly her fault like Hosoi now...but her incapability to maintain members and decided to recruit more members (then under develops them) instead weakened the core of the team unity in general which caused many problems carrying on after her reign. 3. STU Yamamoto Manabu 2017 - present. I really didn't want to put him up here. But I'm just really disappointed at this point to be honest because of the graduation wave hitting STU girls, as multiple times the girls cited that they graduated due to they didn't like certain management policy and direction. Also the inappropriate remarks towards Mori Kaho earlier last year. Plus I am not that fond of his recent pushes but it is understandable. And I give him credit for his work on getting as many random jobs to make up for the girls because of the boat wasn't made in time for the first 2 years plus natural disaster causing delays. But to be honest, they shouldn't rushed the debut in the first place.
