Right now as it stands, there is some major crisis going on and I won't post it here but this is meant for Mahohon to don't feel that we've gone against you for speaking out. In all, we do want to support you as an idol and any choice solely by you won't be questioned. You are not the first and shouldn't be the last to come out about these incidences. We, as fans, shall be wanting truth for everything and anything that has happened. There should be protection for the welfare of any person in danger so please don't make it that you did wrong :jphip:

Looks like it's a good thing that she spoke up when she did, as it may be that the guys who were arrested were released (and thus are "out and about") before New Year's Eve. They apparently were released before this all became public, so it wouldn't surprise me if THAT was the final straw that made her speak up about it.  This whole thing could have been swept under the rug again if she hadn't gone on that Showroom video stream that was forcibly shut down.

- https://www.tokyoreporter.com/crime/suspects-in-attack-of-ngt48s-maho-yamaguchi-released-3-weeks-later/


Of course, the online community is calling for the resignation of NGT's manager:

TokyoReporter.com - Petition calling for the resignation of NGT48 Theatre Manager Imamura Etsurou and an apology from NGT48 staff has received over 43,500 signatures

- https://www.tokyoreporter.com/entertainment/agency-of-ngt48-announces-cancellation-of-3-concerts/



And unfortunately, due to gossip and rumors, a huge part of this whole shitstorm is that certain members have found themselves being targeted/accused of being involved/responsible for it.

Again, this is making news, for all the wrong reasons.

- https://twitter.com/AbemaTV/status/1083608540567166977




And while it's pretty obvious why Yamaguchi would sit out/not participate in NGT's upcoming anniversary show, considering that Tano's name is one of the ones being mentioned as being involved in this whole mess, this isn't going to help matters...

Why were they released exactly?

Knowing Japanese justice system, they come from rich families?

So now this bit should definitely be taken with a grain of salt, as the source (Daily Shincho) is apparently regarded by at least some people as a tabloid publication. That being said, this tabloid publication is apparently now saying that NGT management tried to manipulate what information was and was not released to the media.

And considering how she's the most publicly-known and exposed (as in, she gets a SHIT-ton of TV appearances) 48G member, there's no way to avoid it anymore once Sasshi gets asked about it.

JShowBiz.com - Sashihara Rino comments on Yamaguchi Maho Assault Incident in TV Show

Both of the articles linked above mention that Sasshi specifically talked about the fact that even though management eventually put out a statement about the incident, no specific person signed their name to it, which gave the impression that no one was willing to take responsibility for how the whole situation was handled. And now, perhaps a result of that:

Yamaguchi Maho Relative: Yamaguchi Maho is considering to Leave NGT

My hot take is I know it happens and to a further extent this is an example of lack of authority for the manager (thank god someone was SMART to do it) Now, for her to leave she has to do it on her own terms and especially that if there was a mass movement, it would further prove her point. It may not be good for anybody to reconsider what they have built in Niigata however it could be better to disband and rebuild again. I'm for sure is not a popular opinion but these band-aids are not going to stop but for Maho, I'm hoping she does what's best for her  :)

I'm with you on that.  I've been a big Maho supporter, and to see her put on the sidelines irks me.  With Niigata friend ending, it seems like NGT is getting cut off.

Key points mentioned:
Quote
  • No NGT48 members were directly involved in the incident.
  • The company is considering to charge the suspect through civil procedure.
  • There were some members having private connection with fans and gave them favor, the company finds it inapproicate but admits it was the management's fault, the staff did not give a proper instruction to members, so the time, the company decides ignoring those behaviours.
  • If any inappricate behaviour occurs in future, the management will deal with it seriously.
  • The company will regard members' safety as first priority, reinforce the management system, improve handshake event's security, provide better education to members and staffs.
