[Re: The latter part of the preceding post] Just YouTube-link one more number from the debut performance of the stage last week here - its composition incorporates a nostalgic old-school J-pop style from around the 70s & also feels like an anime opening theme, lol tho its arrangement is relatively more modern:


^ I like those stage costumes, which designs also incorporate military elements. :)

The captain of GNZ48's 3rd team, one of those 20 selected SNHG members participating in the production of that MV & that title number, uploaded this footage of herself today from the shootings over there:

A cool solo performance of a stage number by a newbie member of BEJ48's 2nd team at a theater performance of the team yesterday:


The song reminds me of those J-pop oldies back in the 80s, tho she was born long after that era. lol

While no longer having their exclusive theater now, CKG48 are still active w/ their regular theater performances & various other activities/performances, & have even put this electronic display on a commercial building in a southwestern inland city today - they're mainly active around the southwestern inland provinces:

They won't run in the upcoming SNHG General Election, tho.

The General Election of the SNHG was formally launched simultaneously at the exclusive theaters of SNH48, BEJ48, & GNZ48 tonight - here's the top page of its dedicated site:

SNH48 GROUP 第六届偶像年度人气总决选

The lists of candidates - still not the final lists, tho, as the candidates from IDOLS Ft will only be announced next month:

SNH48 GROUP 第六届偶像年度人气总决选

Only about 200 SNHG members are running in the election & just 48 of them will be elected this time, which totally reflects the downsizing of the SNHG earlier this year. At least they're still holding the election, tho, as the AKBG has already canceled it this year.

The tiny quarter German girl has just recently been simultaneously admitted by three of the country's top most prestigious university-level acting schools. :oh my:

Note that I won't post the footage of all the 20 selected members here - I've posted only a dozen of them or so, & the above one should be the last.
