Though I love Kaori debuting and being the most popular Kenkyuusei member.... I think that's a little bit unfair to her to be forever Kenkyuusei.

It's weird.

 

It's like you never get the chance to be a full-member and really shine with other popular members.

It is an interesting dilemma, being a full member ouside the light of attention or a KKS that is well known. In the end I think every idol wants to be known for something and Kaotan is doing good, good enough to go solo. Management had opportunities to promote her, they chose other girls but she has turned this around to something favourable.

 

Can't wait for that reveal :D

I believe she wants to be a "forever KKS", though. Obviously we can't know for certain if it was fully her decision, but I'm guessing that she sat down with management to discuss it. And she seems happy about it, even proud. She's kinda like the leader of the SKE KKS (and possibly an influence for all KKS). Besides, even if she never becomes a full member, she's debuting as a soloist, and got to participate in one of SKE's a-sides last year, so she's already accomplished more than a number of full members.

She was actually going to be promoted, but she declined promotion, and wanted the "Honorary Lifetime Kenkyuusei" badge instead actually (only girl on SKE member page with this title: "SKE48 終身名誉研究生"). 

 

Kaotan does for SKE kenkyuusei what Sasshii does for HKT48: She's a leader, a mentor, a senior, and she is outrageously extrovert, not afraid of any situation really, and through these skills, she pulls with her the other new girls. You might say that well, this could hamper her career, that she cares too much about others instead of herself - but luckily it doesn't because she has become a cult-figure through the way she is, and that she's also a kenkyuusei still. And while she promotes herself, she also promotes the other girls, so it's a win-win situation for management.

 

So it's like what Erin. says, she's a leader and an influence. I think if she got promoted, she would lose a lot of that "Still a kenkyuusei..." hype she had. She'd potentially be "just another senior" member, with the challenge of how do you stick out from the rest now?

 

She found her niche, and ran with it :)

Oba Mina mentioned something is up with Kaotan. Checking Kaotan's G+ something definitely up but not sure what (news in Japanese):

Not sure which post from Oba you refer to, but if it comes down to the string of broadcast from Kaotan, I read she talks about how her salary has not seen change after she became honorary lifetime KKS member, that the SKE KKS stage doesn't seem to be getting a change any time soon, and that she seriously considered participating in the Draft Event. Maybe Oba saw that and felt for her.

 

I haven't seen those videos yet, there are quite a number of them and I have had no time to watch them so this is second hand info on their content.

The music video for Kaotan's solo debut single "MatsumuLOVE" was shown at SKE48's Request Hour today.

Apparently Sasshi and Yuasa Hiroshi (former SKE48 theater manager) also appear in the video.

Some conversations of arifer tumbler:

 

Release information for the single Matsumurabu

 

gekirena:

 

anshinanzen:

From today’s SKE RH Day 2:

Release information about Matsumurabu will be aired on 18/10 on CBC tv in a once-off advertisement.

Matsumurabu PV information: Kaotan wears school uniform and glasses. Yuasa-san appears in gakuran and apparently plays Kaotan’s lover. SasshiP also makes an appearance.

I sincerely hoped that they would go all-out with the trolls.. I’m not disappointed so far.

 

 

so it was true that Yuasa was Kaotan’s lover?! HAHAHA OMG! this will be epic XDDD

 

 

NO WTF LOL. OMG I’M GOING TO DIE LAUGHING

I'm pretty sure getting a 1st press copy of that will be very hard, considering where it will be sold.

Yeah. I'm gonna look for it on auction sites but I'm sure it will cost a lot.

Hopefully it will sell out and later more copies will be made and be sold online.

lol TV spot for her single aired today:

 

 

Look at how much people got to hear the song. This commercial speaks volume on how much budget the thing has behind. lol

 

PS:

 

Spoiler

 

Matsumura was still clueless to more details about the single:

Fans went to her G+ to complain while loling at the commercial.

 

Matsumura wrote a G+ asking to leave complaints there:

You don't make anything that bad by mistake so I assume it's done on purpose lol
It fits well with their original statement that they have no budget.

From what I've seen they still must've spend more than those 1000 copies can bring in though.
