^lol, I hadn't seen that 'gag' video. I'm actually impressed by her performance. She's more confident than I expected.
I think Juri already improved a LOT since the past couple of months. The dead eyes expression seems to be gone and she seems to be really enjoying herself. I think that's really important and I think the fans can see and appreciate that. It'll be really interesting to see her results in the election... I feel top 65 shouldn't be a problem, but I wonder what position she's aiming for herself.
I'm usually more into long hair, but I think Juri's short style suits her best. I hope she keeps it.
