Hi, I'm new on the Keyaki hype train, I literally got into them this week. XD

I don't really know how I found them. I know some H!P fans mentioned them earlier in terms of super popular debut song and great formation dance, but I didn't look up that time. I tried to get into 48G groups so many times, but it just didn't work. I guess they had too much songs and members, not to mention they are constantly rotating. (I have a problem with recognizing faces so it's super hard to me to get to know large idol groups.) But I think I listened to Silent Majority sometime this week (and other songs, but SaiMajo was my 1st favourite) and accidentally got into them I guess? XD I watched their Countdown to debut live and they seemed interesting. I love the group unity feeling they have and the members are very cute! ^^ Also, I think the main thing that got me into Keyaki was their songs (they have a bit darker lyrics I love Getsuyoubi no asa OMG compared to other idol groups), their MVs and the fact that so far they aren't rotating members. I know they may in the future, I looked up maaaaany things this week (including reading through this thread), but I hope they keep Kanji Keyaki and Hiragana Keyaki as stable groups that kind of complement each other. (Double A sides would be awesome, one for Kanji and one for Hiragana or something. I don't know what could happen, I'm very new to this system.)

 

So far my oshi is Habu Mizuho. :3 I noticed her in their Countdown to debut live (at the very first backstage session), because she reminded me of Yamaki Risa (Country Girls), so I started to look at her and tried to get to know what kind of idol she is. I like that she loves anime! ^^ She's beautiful, has a cute voice and I like her dancing. (And she's so cool in Fukyouwaon!) I've just started to watch Keyakitte, so I'm looking forward to get to know her better, and also the other members. I have some other girls that I have my eye on (Berika, Neru, Yukka, Yuipon, and so on), but Mizu is surely my favourite. :3

 

 

(OMG I started a new page. :ph34r:)

^Welcome to the keyacrew!  :itadakimasu:

 

If you love Getsuyoubi, then you should definitely check out Onota wa Shinjite Kurenai, Kataru Nara Mirai wo, Eccentric, and Hiraishin if you haven't already! 

IA, I would love for Hiragana and Kanji to stay as separate entities and release double A-sides. Maybe one occasional mixed senbatsu would be okay, but giving Hiragana members the opportunity to shine like have Kanji have done so far will be great for everyone ^^ I love Habu! She's so cute. Since being a front row member for the 5th single, we've been graced with lots of Habu moments that have allowed me to appreciate her more. I hope she can maintain her momentum with the next single ~ 

 

Quick update late news but better late than never lol, Kanji Keyaki members will be the faces of the face mask brand KOWA, with their song Hiraishin being used as the background music for the adverts.

Oh, I love those songs as well! :D I was listening to Eccentric and Kataru nara before and while reading your post. :D Hiraishin is the only song of the four that's kinda new for me, I've just found it recently.

I'm really cheering for Habu and hope she'll be in the 1st row in the next single, too! ^_^ She was so cute when she was told she'll be in the first row. <3 How the girls get to selected in the rows? I think I read somewhere that it's based on popularity, but how? Handshake events? And only those? Or something other? (Sorry for being a noob. :ph34r:)

No worries, we all start somewhere  ^-^

If I'm being honest, we (as fans) have no clear idea of how management chooses who gets to be in in first row. It's usually a combination of "management favorites" "fan favorites" and "skills depending on whats required for each single". Unlike 48g where we have the senbatsu election as a clear example of who is popular to a certain extent, for Sakamichi groups we only have sales as an indicator of who is popular, namely Handshake sales. If you look at the single threads for Keyaki here, i usually post HS event rounds which show which members have sold out their slots. That's one of the main ways we can tell who is popular or not. Going by the last 5 singles (for kanji) we can see that; 

 

Most popular girls: Hirate Yurina, Nagahama Neru, Imaizumi Yui, Kobayashi Yui, Sugai Yuuka, Watanabe Rika, and Watanabe Risa

Mid tier girls: Nagasawa Nanako, Moriya Akane, Suzumoto Miyu, Shida Manaka, Uemura Rina, Koike Minami, and Harada Aoi

Lower tier girls: Habu Mizuho, Ozeki Rika, Sato Shiori, Oda Nana, Yonetani Nanami, Saito Fuyuka, and Ishimori Nijika. 

 

The girls in lower tier are usually the ones in the 3rd/last row. Each single (since the 2nd), members from the 3rd and 2nd row have had a chance to be in the front lines, so by the 5th single, every Kanji member has been in the front row of senbatsu at least once. Mid tier girls are more likely to make it into the 1st row twice (such as Suzumoto) or never experience being in the 3rd row (such as Moriya and Shida), Whereas other mid tier girls are "stuck" in the 3rd row despite their HS sales being very good (such as Nagasawa and Uemura). Most popular girls have been in the the 1st or 2nd row for every single thus far (minus Imaizumi due to her medical leave). So while HS events are a huge indicator, it's not the only thing. Hirate is clearly the face of the group, so she centers a lot (all the time lol), Neru was the face/center of Hiragana Keyaki until now (and 2nd only to Techi), WWatanabe are models so they're very prominent in the group, WYui are extremely popular with fans, and Sugai is the leader of Keyaki, so these girls are always more likely to be in the front row than the other girls by default. It's important to note that management does have their favorites, but they also take the single's theme into account too. For example, Shiori is an experienced ballet dancer, so she was moved to front row during their 3rd single Futari Saison where ballet was a main part of the choreography. Another example is Ishimori, Suzumoto and Kobayashi being in the front for the 5th single because they're the best dancers in the group and the choreography is complex. 

 

I hope this helps and sorry it's so long  :ph34r:

Wow, thank you for the detailed explanation, also the popularity ranking! ^_^ I think this is the 1st time my oshi is a lower tier girl. In H!P, my oshis ended up being popular. XD (And I also like a popular girl in Fairies.) Well, cheering with full power for Habu-chan! <3 Also, continue to watch Keyakitte. :D
