Team KKS: Yamada Marina (2nd generation)
Ainyan graduating.... ;___; She was the first NMB member to catch my eye and I've been supporting her since the very beginning back when she was in the back row for Zetsumetsu. Totally did not expect her to be the one to graduate... especially since she's gotten a lot more publicity since finishing the Osaka Marathon. Ainyan is really great and all the members love her <3 I wish her well in whatever she chooses to do from here on out. With Ainyan graduating, I think I'll actually have more M members in my top 10 than N.
Onto HKT.... I'm so happy for the girls <3 They've been getting the short end of the stick for a while, but they'll have their debut single out soon and now there's a new stage for them.... Anddddd, I've forgotten that there's still a spot in Team H left ;3; Really really really hope Yamada Marina gets promoted into it because KIII will probably feature Meru, Mio, and Marika. Ueki Nao is my current HKT oshimen
since they kicked my original oshimen out
but I'm getting dangerously close to oshihening over to Marina <3 But all the HKT girls are great and I like them all so yeah ;_; They should all get to debut.
