No, I think unless there is an exception to KSS, based on the age requirement, Ishiyama Sakura is not eligible because she's in 3rd year high school (she was born before April 2004).

 

However, this is the big chance for Hashida Honoka

These days the Kenshuusei are evaluated separately via their activities rather than included in the audition, so I don't think her age would matter as far as the audition requirements go. I personally think she's probably got a better chance at MM than Juice though.

So this sort of solidifies that very likely an impending graduation is coming for both groups especially for J=J. MM for obvious reasons since we have 3 members well in a decade with their tenure.

As for J=J, making Manakan and Ruru sub-leaders make me think that Akari is likely to graduate very soon.

I wonder if Akari wanted to graduate before Tomoko but Tomoko's surprise graduation threw a spanner in the works.

Unless there is a mass graduation coming for MM, I really don't want any more additions. The group hasn't felt exciting in so long to me and new members have not helped that. The group is way too large now.
I feel so sad that I feel this way about the group that got me into idols...

JJ actually feels stable right now. I'm really hanging onto the groups that are a bit smaller tbh, they just feel more put together. Beyooooonds does the large group thing right, but probably because it's split up into other smaller groups.

MM: Ayumi, Maria, Erina |||| A: Layla, AyanoWakana |||| JJ: Ruru, Manaka, Akari

TF: Mao, Yumeno, Yuumi |||| BYO~: Yuhane, Miyo, Minami |||| ON: Kanami, Kirara, Momo

I guess it makes sense for MM since they just lost their main seller, but i hope some other girls will graduate cause the group is way too big.

J=J? Meh they don't really need it.

MM: 1.Rio 2. Chisaki 3.Kaede A: 1.Ayano 2.Rikako 3.Rin JJ: 1.Akari 2.Ichika 3.Riai TF: 1.Mizuho 2.Shiori 3.Yumeno Beyooonds : 1.Rika 2.Honoka 3.Minami

ON : 1.Natsume 2 Kanami 3.Miku

To be fair, Tomoko's graduation was not planned to happen last November. I believe that it was set for this year, as she had said several times how she wanted to stay until the new members were adjusted to the group and such. It was only because her illness was flaring up again, so they had to rush her graduation. That said, I expect Manaka as the oldest member and Akari as the most senior member to both depart within the year. So this audition makes sense, even if it is too soon.

 

For Morning Musume, I think we will have several graduations this year, with the three most senior members all graduating being very likely. And it's been three years since 15ki were added, so they needed to have another audition sooner than later.

I also completely agree that J=J having a new audition is just bonkers - the group is big enough already!

But one thing that is kind of interesting is that, since J=J is focused on having really good singers, we know they're looking for utahimes or someone with high singing potential. Which brings me back to MoMusu: possible Sakura grad this year maybe?

I think both groups are big enough already with the expeption that Mornung Musume indeed needs something refreshing, to me that group feels more like a habbit I check in on a regular base than something exciting I follow and invest in.
Also I also can imagine that some members will graduate soon aswell since lot of them have been around for like 10ish years which is pretty long for Morning Musumes history. 
Juice = Juice on the other hand...I'd love to see the new members develop and setting into their roles first before anyone new joins...I still haven't get used to them tbh and since Juice feels so new and different now I as a fan feel like I can't take a break and get used to that feeling either since I still miss the old group while also looking forward to the future but it's so messy to have no time to just get accustomed to it

Sad to say but I'm kind of expecting an exodus of graduations in the next five years since most of the current girls are of the same age bracket. I hope they add in more members and make history as the biggest MM lineup, even for a short while.

 

And we're now approaching MM's 25th formation anniversary in September so I expect bigger things from the group this and next year considering this is a silver anniversary. Silver era yo

I agree I see Sakura more likely to go to MM than J=J.

the J=J audition makes me convinced that Akari is going to graduate, but I think Manaka will stay for another two years, so I only see them adding one new member.

I don’t see any current MM members graduating before the 25th anniversary activities are done, but after that I expect at least 2 grads in short order, so we might see another 3 member gen. I’m kind of interested in seeing W Sakura happen.

I personally don't see the two subleaders signalling Akari's graduation. MM had both Eripon and Harunan be sub-leaders for the same reason, one was older but the other was more senior. It didn't mean Mizuki was graduating soon, just that it was a good medium for having the oldest and senior take leadership positions. The only thing that makes me think Akari will graduate is the quick succession of her gen mates graduating. In one year she went from having 3 gen mates to zero. I imagine her staying for the new members then peace out after 1 year of leadership. 

 

For MM the writing is on the wall.. With 3 girls past 10 years in the group, and 4 girls with over 7 years, and 9 out of 13 girls being over the age of 20, we can expect many graduations in the next few years. I've followed 9ki since their formation and i've been prepared for PonPon's departures since 2017 so i'm not worried, just waiting for the inevitable at this point. The groups gotta keep moving on, and the girls at some point need to spread their wings.. 

 

For Juice=Juice i'm expecting 2 new girls, 15 and 16, with pretty decent vocal abilities (but more than their recent additions). 

For MM i'm expecting a 4 member generation. 12, 13, 13, and 15. I predict this because by the time they announce the members, 15th gen will already be 18, 17, and 17 years old. I feel they'll want to go the 9ki route and add many young girls in preparation of their 20+ members graduating one after the other. I also think because of this, we'll probably get another audition in 2024 with a 3 member gen. If they decide to go older than 15, they'll add Sakura or Honoka from KSS. Things are really shaking up now.

First, if J=J has 2 sub-leaders, either Aari or Manakan will graduate very soon. However, I bet Aari will leave because all of her gen-mates are gone. For J=J, I predict 2-nin generation

For MM, who knows whether Fuku-chan may break the 25-year-old curse like KNTM did. However, holding audition for MM implies that one or some of them will graduate very soon. For MM, I predict 2-nin generation.

Maybe they have a theory that joint auditions with Juice=Juice is more likely to attract uta-himes...
