I'm so excited for this. I just KNEW they'd announce auditions. It's the perfect time for them, and I definitely don't think they want MM to get any smaller than it is.
I really feel as though we're GOING to get new girls from this Audition. H!P doesn't seem so allergic to the idea anymore (since we got 4 new faces from the ONLY YOU audition that gave H!P a lot of hype and freshness). What I want is a 4nin Generation with 2 girls from the audition and 2 KSS, OR 3 new girls and 1 KSS like 9th & 10th Gen. I think either a newer KSS or a Hokkaido KSS will be promoted, and all of the members will probably be on the younger side, with maybe one member being older than Akane. I also feel that this audition will be different from the 13th Gen one and they'll find what they're looking for before the end of the spring tour. I can see no one Graduating during spring and the Budokan in June being for announcing the new members. We haven't gotten new members in the summer in recent years, so it would be a nice change. I think if they repeat the events of the 13ki audition it will leave a bad taste in everyone's mouth. I'm hoping for a 15nin musume from Summer until we have a graduation at the Fall tour! *italian chef fingertip kiss* perfection.
Oh and yes, I want what everyone wants out of this audition: an "ace".
