The Kenkyuusei Discussion Thread
« on: August 01, 2010, 10:56:28 PM »
General discussion on AKB48, SKE48, and any other kenkyuusei/sub-members can go here. We didn't really have a place for general chatter, just polls for each generation, so here ya go. Doubt this'll be a high traffic thread but we need a space for when there is some news and views. AKB's kenkyuusei do full theater shows, after all!

Last night I watched the July 22nd Kenkyuusei on demand show and was pretty impressed with it. Sure, a lot of their lipsynching was not very good and their timings were at times atrocious, but they're kenkyuusei. :lol: Despite their lack of polish, it was still a very enjoyable show. To be honest, I enjoyed some their stuff more than the Team B show. :nervous A few mebers stood out. I watched this mainly to get a look at some of the 10th generation, but for the most part I was focused on Shimada Haruka and Yamauchi Suzuran. I think Haruka is ripe for a team promotion. She's absolutely terrific. As the show went along, I noticed this really pretty girl who was dancing really fucking awesome. In the MC, I learned it was Suzuran which surprised me very much. The last time I watched one of their shows(which was a LONG time ago), I didn't really like her at all. She impressed me most right under Haruka, so.. guess I'll have to eat my words on that one. :lol: They were both in the Arashi no yoru ni wa unit, along with Abe Maria and Kanazawa Yuuki. They totally ROCKED it, way more than the B members have so far in my opinion. Oba Mina did a really good job with Yuki's solo song. Kanazawa Yuuki is really cute. I think she'll be good. Nakamata Shiori is SUPER CUTE. Abe Maria also seemed pretty good. Overall my interested in AKB's kenkyuusei as a whole is back up. There's still a few I don't like in the slightest but there's enough interesting once now to check out these shows more. :)

The Kenkyuusei have managed to be the topic of many discussions lately. It almost seems they are popular than SKE at the moment  :O2

I gotta admit, I don't know most of them that well. The clips I did see in that Ariyoshi show were pretty cool though.

What really impressed me was this clip Ronin posted, YT'ed for viewing convenience:



They handled that really professionally  :thumbup

based on some random sources: a kenkyuusei selection will be held at the end of this month (sept 30)

that means people will get the axe, as usual.

I WAS UNAWARE THIS THREAD EXISTED.

I'm dying inside a little at this next selection. Miyu aside (nothing against her either way, really), I love and adore every single 8th/9th gen student basically more than the actual AKB members right now. Any single one of them gone is gonna be an ax through my heart.... Ugh :( The 10th gen I'm warming to, but if anyone HAS to go I'm honestly hoping it's some of them and the 8th/9th gen remain unharmed... Wishful thinking. But I don't see why any of them have to go, really.

At least it was just two, I was expecting more. Still, one of those two was pretty damn awesome.  :(

^I don't know who are 8th gen, but I think a lot of them are gone. We try to keep the index up to date:

Asai Madoka (rejected)
Fujimoto Sara (rejected)
Ishibe Aya (rejected)
Ishiguro Atsuki (rejected)
Ishii Ayaka (rejected)
Imai Yuri (resigned)
Kaku Grace (rejected)
Kinumoto Momoko (rejected)
Komizu Namami (rejected)
Miki Nikoru (rejected)
Mori Anna
Muraka Satomi (rejected)
Nagao Mariya
Nakamura Mariko
Oba Mina
Sakamoto Rio (rejected)
Sano Yuriko (rejected)
Shimada Haruka
Shimazaki Haruka
Sugiyama Miku (rejected)
Takamatsu Eri (resigned)
Takeuchi Miyu
Tomite Ami (rejected)
Ueki Asaka (resigned)
Yamauchi Suzuran

It seems that the girls that are left (in this list) are mostly/all 9th gen?

Btw, are we missing any still active kenkyuusei in the girl index? 11th gen threads are coming shortly.

Yeah, none of the 8th gen made it through. All the remaining non-rejected ones in that list are 9th gen.

The 8th gen was rife with problems. Some were dating, some apparently had public blogs (that they used to bad-mouth other girls from AKB while there), a lot of them were late for lessons or didn't show up at all, etc etc.

It would seem. If you search for info about them on Google or something you can find all sorts of reports about them and what was going on, hence the huge slash the first time. The few who weren't cut in that first big round either left themselves or... were Yuririn, who still got cut later ;_;
