Here's the official announcement:http://www.helloproject.com/news/6098
They couldn't find anyone from the audition process, so I guess they're pushing the Trainees just to get someone out there?
Anyway, my money is on Karin clone Ayano Kawamura
, an already experienced idol from a land H!P rarely touches. But for who I'd personally want, I'm continuing my hope for balance with someone older and/or taller...so Reina Ichioka
Meanwhile some folks I follow on Twitter are hyped for Momohime Kiyono
who admittedly is pretty cute and has mad beatboxing skills, so she'd be a good pick too (though if she gets in they'll definitely need a taller girl with her to balance things out).
Tsubaki Factory is still technically KSS for now...what if Momusu steals someone from them or makes a trade???
Just realized this is the most knowledgeable I've ever been about the Eggs/KSS leading into a new MM generation!
I'm getting better at knowing them before they debut!
(also in b4 Sayumi and Riho come back with different names pretending to be completely different people)
