Quote from: Tsunku tweeted
That's right! S/mileage is now taking new member applications!



Official application info site:

Google translation cause I'm not about to translate it all myself:

Notes
Transportation costs, will not bear any other expenses. (Participation fee is free.)
One will participate only once. Subsequent interviews will not be accepted.
"Morning. Promising member [10] during the audition," you can attend has been applied for. However, if you passed both, you can not both groups.
Documents and interviews will not be returned. Documents and interviews are based on personal information protection law "Wanted Sumairejimenba" used only by the Secretariat will be kept until the end of member recruitment examination. After recruiting members, our office will be promptly destroyed.
Might be included such as the Internet to broadcast television. Ni関Shimashite broadcast recording, I will indicate your consent to the interviews at the time of application. Please note.
Individual inquiries about admission Please note that We do not give support.

With how S/mileage's debut was handled, we might be looking at a concerted effort to make them follow the same pattern that Morning Musume did.
As a result, I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with several new members.

However, it seems to me it's a little odd that it's not being called an "audition", just "accepting applications".
Very odd, as a matter of fact...

Wtf lol!!!!


...Now there's no reason why they didn't also add Akari back in the day :| Since obvs. 4 members isn't the definite limit


Hm do I remember wrong that they actually said in the beginning that the members might change or something? I think my brain is confusing this with some other group, like Berryz or something. Anyone remember? xD

I do remember hearing Berryz was supposed to have a rotating roster with the other H!P Kids getting shuffled in...
But we all know how that one worked out.

As for S/mileage, I'm really not sure if I've heard anything of the sort.
It's been a while since I've seen the stuff regarding their formation.

But yes, Akari might be good.

Anyway, whoever they pick, she's gotta have good legs.
That's a given, right?

Edit:
Video added to first post.

 roger that on the need for excellent legs if anyone wants to join s-mileage....the  girls looked none too pleased about the suprise.....especially yuuka, who looked like she passed a gall stone the size of mari yaguchi :bleed eyes: for most of that clip.....

Oh....
;   3 ; I really loved S/mileage as a 4 member unit- I remember thinking when they were formed that it was a great combination and had a good balance as all 4 girls got roughly even lines and screentime.

I hope this doesn't mess up the balance of the group too much, though I'm sure we'll start to see the same favouritism and front girls as in Morning Musume.... (Though original 4 will probably be the front girls :lol: )

^ Oh god I didn't even think about that yet

They are definitely among the most even-lined H!P units in HISTORY, since it always goes Yuuka-Saki-Dawa-Kanon (order changes of course but you get the point; they all have solo lines in every song)

Now I have more reason to be actually worried about this botching things up :(

I wonder what the original 4 are thinking right now. They worked hard to debut, trying to get peoples' smiles on the streets and most likely forged incredible bonds amongst themselves. If it's already hard for us to accept this sudden change, what more for them. (Kanon's must be already scheming about what she can do to her kohai :lol:)

But this is all probably part of a master plan:

1. Hold auditions/applications
2. Choose finalists
3. No one gets accepted
4. Contact top 4 finalist, issue challenge
5. Finalists succeed
6. Finalists debut as a group
7. World domination



PS.

Please leave the remaining 8 Eggs alone and debut them as a unit next year KTHXBYE

WAR AKARI!!! Infernal Ninjutsu, Hidden Lore...Freedom of Opposites Technique!!! Rest in peace Kyle,Jab,Mom,Tita, ChrNo...

Yeah, Tsunku's been trolling everyone for years, especially when it comes to auditions.
The only time I can think of where he didn't pull a fast one on everyone was 1998 with the 2nd gen Morning Musume auditions.

Seriously, check it out:
Original audition - takes 5 finalists and makes them a new group
2nd Generation  - no surprise
3rd Generation  - only picked one (I believe 2 picks were expected.)
4th Generation  - surprise pick, Tsuji
5th Generation  - surprise pick, Konno
6th Generation  - all 3 finalists pass, then add in Fujimoto
7th Generation  - no one picked, then only picked one, no training camp final
8th Generation  - only picked one, then added in two girls from China
9th Generation  - had members learn who was picked at the same time as the fans, then add in Fukumura
10th Generation - told everyone except 9th gen that there were upcoming auditions


I'm beginning to think Gaki was right, saying Tsunku had so much fun with the 9th generation auditions that he wanted to start over again right away.


Also, keep in mind Tsunku was making it look like there was a possibility that he wasn't going to pick all 4 S/mileage members to debut.

it seems dawa said “I cannot watch over any more little kids ” and kanon said “no way, people like these four ” , but they will surely adapt

According to Manoeri's twitter, up to 6 members might be added... SIX!!!

Meanwhile Tsunku has updated about being happy with the applicants so far.

I'd link the tweets but I have no idea how to get single tweet URLs anymore from twitter :| rofl
