Here's the Sakigaki episode with MBKM:
Watch it quickly, gogogo~
On the whole Sayu/Momo topic (and here I am, butting into a conversation after not posting here in months ), I agree with what others have said; both Sayu and Momo have pretty contrived characters where the cutesy act is concerned. Sayu's schtick has become her poison tongue more than her narcissism (though self-absorbed bunny still makes an appearance once in a while ). I think Momo could have staying power if she were to expand on that. Both of them are certainly hilarious if not an acquired taste. I can't tell you how tiring it gets to have to explain to people that no, Sayumi is not really self centered, egotistical, stupid, or mean. It's kinda like the Mikitty character in a way; once you get used to it, it's pretty darn funny.

On the subject of friendships, I just feel I have to add that you don't have to share everything with your close friends.
I've had two very best friends since the sixth grade (about...eight years now?) and most of what we do together is derp/troll/play around. Stupid stuff you can really only do with people you're close to, but nothing serious. I did go through a bit of a rough time where I was very sure they would both be there should I need them, but I just didn't share all that much with them. I love them to bits and pieces, but there are things in my life that I don't feel the need to say to them, just because. The second interpretation sounds more accurate, because to say they don't talk in private just wouldn't make any sense They travel abroad together often and they hang out all the time, plus they've known one another for ten years. They've seen each other nearly every day since they were 14/15 years old. They've developed a very strong bond and relationship--maybe not the most important relationship in either of their lives, but its definitely there. For anyone disappointed by these revelations, look on the upside: now that they've gotten closer, their bond can really only deepen. I think they've got a relationship on a level deeper than even they know, based on what Sayu said. She's been there for eight of those ten years, so for her to make those comments about Gaki and Ai's friendship...those aren't observations coming from nowhere.
I'll admit that when I was a newer fan of idol groups, I contrived pairings that were likely only there for show. For some reason, back then, it crushed me to think that Reina was a loner, even though that was very much the case at some point in time. But I don't doubt for a second the friendship 8th generation Momusu had. Those girls go through a lot together, and Ai's leadership was easily (at least in my opinion) the closest I think Momusu had been. I don't doubt that they have other friends who they've known for far longer and who are far more important to them, but to say that they aren't friends at all would be a bit of a stretch. At any rate, just sharing my two cents We're all entitled to our own thoughts, so no love lost.
Slightly unrelated to the discussion, I used to swear up and down that I'd never lose interest in MM. In my defense, my favorite lineup was around for 3~4 years. So H!P had me spoiled. Ai's graduation, coupled with Eri's, Lin's and Jun's were pretty fatal blows to my fandom. But I'm looking forward to seeing Risa as a leader and to seeing the direction this new lineup will be going in, so I feel my interest picking back up again. I think I'll always feel some sense of familiarity and...home (ignore my cheesiness, please) with H!P and H!O.
Who are we to know what they truly feel toward each other, but it's more than nothing and less than everything.
That's deep, Eeyore.

I thought I took the EriJunLin graduation hard....If I cried watching that small (but touching) performance, I'm going to be a total and complete wreck when they send Ai off. I really am.
The ending, though Really, Ai? Really?
