What is this strange feeling?
I just read someone's impression on Nogizaka46 3ki and it was written there that it's quite possible that Ikuta will graduate in 2018.
And before that happens it says that it's quite possible to have this kind of 10 members formation
2nd line: Iwamoto (3ki), Ito Karin (2ki), Ozono (3ki), Hori (2ki), Terada (2ki)
1st line: Yamashita (3ki), Yoda (3ki), Ikuta (1ki), Saito Asuka (1ki), Kubo (3ki)
Anyhow, here is my impression on 3ki members (along with their comments on passing the audition)
Nakamura Reno, 14 years old, from Tokyo
"I thought that I don't have a chance, but I'm glad that I passed. From now on I'll do my best with all my efforts"
AKB-ish face, cute but somewhat ordinary. Eyes slightly remind me Maeda Atsuko. She looks diligent and maybe she will replace Ikuta's character? I didn't see her audition broadcasts.
Ozono Momoko, 16, Kagoshima pref.
"It's mysterious that I succeeded even though I don't have any skills. I'll work hard from now on"
She looks promising. I'm kinda worried how senpai members will treat her, since she can position herself to many existing characters (or be a wild mix of those).
Yamashita Mizuki, 17, Tokyo
"It's like a dream to join my favorite Nogizaka46, I haven't realized everything yet. I don't really have "character" or "personality", but I'll do my best to contribute to Nogizaka46".
Um, she's beautiful. Definite choice for model jobs and probably rival and successor to Shiraishi Mai. Unlike 1ki beauties with "cool faces", she has a "gentle face".
