The Senbatsu lineup was announced during the group's last "Nogizaka Under Construction" and once again you-know-who was not chosen as the center, bet she wants to finish that FU with two more letters....
But here is the official lineup, thought they may have had 18 members but management chose to go with just sixteen.
There's no doubt Asuka as the center was a huge surprise, most fans thought Erika was going to return to that spot. It's an okay choice though as Asuka has really grown in popularity plus you like to see different faces int hat center position.
Two Undergirls were promoted, if you look at the pic above in the last row on the ends are Hinako, glad she finally made it and Himeka. Sad think though is with two members getting promoted means two were demoted which were Sayuri I. and Marika, bums me out a bit that she was demoted as she's really been rising on my fave member list.
No title for the single yet, it's coming out in July 25th so would think we'll be hearing what the title is within the next few weeks. Besides this announcement there's been very little going on with the group as they're probably preparing for the two concerts taking place on June 15th and 16th which are Mai's graduation shows.
Just one new mag spread for today, may have skipped posting about the group today but figured many fans wanted to hear the news on the next single. From the July issue of UTB are Manatsu and Rena who each have a solo spread.
Do have quite a few new blog pics though, five pics each here from Manatsu, Chiharu who is really looking superb lately. Following her is Miria and Yumi who continues to do the best job of keeping her blog updated.
Welcome to my humble site....
Hajimemashite minna san....welcome to my site on my fave Japanese Pop Culture likes such as dramas, movies, magazine scans, promo events etc. Mainly concentrate on my faves...Keyakizaka46... Erina Mano... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!
Also these days(mid-2017) have many posts for Korean actresses, dramas and films that are worth checking out as over the years have become a much bigger fan of Korean dramas versus the ones from Japan.
Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
New item on the right is the 'Featured Post of the Day', will be putting some fabulous oldie posts which some of you may have missed the first time around, all will be at least one year old.
