Basically, the same rules as the first draft but selected members would start of as KKS bound to the team which selected them. It involve all AKB48/SKE48/NMB48/HKT48 teams captain, SKE48 leader and theater managers with advise from appointed team scouts.
49 candidates was announced but 2 have withdrawn leaving 47 candidates
Sorry for posting this up quite late, as I had a very hard time trying to link up the profile and pictures of 47 candidates But we still got about 2 weeks from now so we still got plenty of time to talk about it and also express our opinion on the draft.. I split the candidates (1-23) and (24-47) into 2 post because there were too many pictures and the system does not allow me to post so many pictures. and I spoiler it as it could be too long ..
The majority of them is so YOUNG. Like young-young.
A lot of interesting looking girls. Matsui Rina really stands out with her glasses and hair colour, Shibata Yui looks like... Yui lol, and I wonder if Murukawa Vivian is a halfie or was born outside of Japan.
Personally, I am more interested in Imamura Maria (for having the ridiculously young look (and short), and Sasshii gave her some personal attention at an event some time ago, so that'll be interesting, if she'll be picked. But, also Hiwatashi Yui is interesting. Perhaps my favorite I have to say. She's got a background with some CM stuff, but what I like is her looks and voice.
Watch the above video, some of the girls are performing at the AKB48 theater (including Imamura Maria, and Hiwatashi Yui - both of which are getting some loud cheers).
I think she didn't have enough sleep and her eye bags were bloated which result in a bad profile pic and poor looks on the video..lol I check her out .. she was a child actress .. She is a Saitama girl who like NMB48 and looks up to Miyuki
I think she got good potential and should be hot property from the teams to fight for .. At 14 going to 15 years old in 3 days .. she is not that young and should be easy to push straight away .. but of course I dunno how the members think though .. I think she could be another Sakura or Mion .. I am backing this girl .. I am quite sure she should get a place .. A good future "oshimen" prospect for me ..
There is something strange though .. her old profile list her as Kanagawa born but it become Saitama for the draft.. (I think it is she is Kanagawa born but stay in Saitama now ..) this is some of her previous work .. and I am pretty sure I saw these in Japan before when I was in Japan ..
^ .. ya .. But the first video of her .. her eyes were really worse than usual .. it has dark rings .. look like someone punch her in the eye .. I think she may have been too excited the night before and had to wake up early to travel from Saitama to Tokyo ..
Good choice .. lol .. the sweet look members of 48G ..
In the video, Akasaka Misaki looks like Yamada Nana
And omg 130 cm tall!!
As I said with SKE 7th gen auditions, I'm so worried for those 11 year olds...
" ’15 has become a completely new Morning Musume。, but I want to treat the history that has been handed down to us preciously. If there was a book about Morning Musume。’s history, I think I would be happy to see my name left there."
"Masaki loves all music made by Tsunku-san. Every single note and word stabs me right in my soul! I mean it in a good way!" (translated by Ronin - thanks!)
Just stating .. but I think everyone should know but still .. She is TGS Yamabe Miyu's sister .. Yamabe Miyu They look kind of alike .. Anyway .. it would be fun to see if she make SKE48 .. because then she would be in the same label (Avex) as her sister ..
Anyway .. less than a week to go .. .. would there be any streaming?
wow .. that really bring new prospective to the table .. The thing is .. they can afford of lot of space .. This gives more hope as with 47 people in the draft and I doubt half will make it as as there was only 12 team with quite a few teams being quite full already .. but I am not sure the new draftee would want to go NGT48 and may refuse selection ..this run the risk of 48G missing a few potentially good people .. Furthermore.. this make me think that the NGT48 audition is not going well .. so they needed the additional resource to get their members but then again .. it would be good for NGT48 as draft members are already promoted heavily .. so people would know them already..
I'm not sure if this is OK to post but I don't see a problem. For anyone who wants to watch the Anta Dare broadcasts with the Draft candidates,
if you paste 【ドラフト】第2回AKB48ドラフト会議★11【本スレ】on google (yes it links you to a 2ch page so you will see weird ads, be warned!!!), scroll to the end of the first post where it says ▼前スレ, or just Ctr F that text, then click on 第2回AKB48ドラフト会議★10, THEN Ctr F "fast-uploader" on that new page you just opened, and those 2 links you see will lead you to the first Anta Dare broadcasts.
If you then Ctr F "vid.me" on the same thread [EDIT: I just realised that gives too many options, weird fix but if you Ctr F : 5月4日 (just a date...) that only appears once in that thread and that is on the same post the links are on], that will lead you to the second set of broadcasts. For the second vid.me video to work, you need to type "h" in front of the ttp part after you paste the link (obviously).
Then, if you go back to the original thread you had open 【ドラフト】第2回AKB48ドラフト会議★11【本スレ】, if you Ctr F vid.me there [EDIT: again, this gives muliple results, sorry, it is the 3rd result from the top, should be post 77 on the thread], you will get the third video (again you need to add a "h").
I didn't want to paste the links here directly just in case I was violating some rule, but if it is OK to do so, I can do that since that is a lot easier for people to find.
As a reminder to people, the event is streamed life on fami-geki and nottv tomorrow. It will probably take a while for the videos to be on the tracker: So keep all the talk in this thread to keep the forum spoiler free until at least a day after the videos are up.
