The talented, beloved deputy captain of SNH48's 3rd team is currently performing a stage play w/ a 1st-team member (both star in the play) at a famous, historical-monument theater during the X'mas period - her teammates coming to watch her performance & visiting her at the backstage today, where they presented a bouquet of strawberries to her: :love:

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... w0npd0.jpg

^ Not all her teammates are there, of course, but most of the team's prominent members are. :)

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... cz7wh0.jpg

^ "To keep it or to eat it, that is the question." XD

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... czb290.jpg

^ I like the color of her sweater matching the Season. :D

She's also the lyricist of some of their songs. :cool:

W/ the recent departure of the team's captain, she's now in effect the acting captain of the team (that's not her 1st time, tho, as that captain has also been in long hiatus in the past).

BTW, her nick is Usagi, so one can guess what her favorite anime is. :wink:

[EDIT]
^ Her blog entry about it, w/ some other pics:

A 4th anniversary promotion video of SNH48, featuring their founding, 1st-generation members, who're revered like deities both in the entire group & among all the SNHG groups these days, whether they're holding any official positions in the group or not, or being ranked in their General Elections or not (or if ranked, w/e their ranking), not least because of all the hardships, pains, & survival-threatening crises they went thru during the founding/early period, which laid the foundation for the flourishing group & their sister groups today:



They'll also hold a special concert at their small debut venue (they didn't have a regular, permanent performing venue at the time - their exclusive theater would only open almost a year later) next month to commemorate that. :)

[EDIT]
The original soundtrack of the title number of BEJ48's upcoming 2nd EP:



^ Another nice song. BTW, that pic is an image pic for that EP.

Forgotten to post these two posters of an upcoming drama starring the current #2- & #3-ranked members of SNH48 (as well as SNHG):

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgw1 ... 2f77wh.jpg

^ Their hilarious, self-mocking (she also mocks her group mates as well as their staff & management, tho lol ) comedian; 2nd generation; 2nd team; ranked #2.

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgw1 ... 2f77qz.jpg

^ One of the group members w/ a higher level of education (BA in Japanese Studies); deputy captain of their 2nd team; 2nd generation; ranked #3.

It's well known in the group & among fans that the former has chased after the latter in the past, but the latter isn't interested, forcing the former to finally abandon her antics & redirect her attention to other group members - the two are now in a strictly colleague-to-colleague working relationship. lol

SNHG has announced the upcoming new & original stages of SNH48's 3rd & 5th teams, & BEJ48's 2nd team today, which'll open in the latter half of this month & the 1st quarter of next year respectively - after that, all of the teams in both the former & latter groups will be performing original stages at their respective exclusive theaters. It's also notable that the new stage of BEJ48's 2nd team is the group's very 1st own original one, as the original ones currently performed by their other two teams are both adapted from those of SNH48's 1st two teams respectively - here's a soundtrack of the title number of that new stage, released today (click that orange button to play it):

^ Yet another quality original song of SNHG. :cool:

The stage has opened today - one of its numbers performed:



[EDIT 1]
^ A sexy, Arabian-styled number, w/ the team's captain as the center girl:


Just adding another one: =^_^=



The setlist of the stage contains many quality works, but I'm not gonna link all of them here, of course.

SNH48 performing on a New Year's Eve show of a major satellite TV station tonight - the SNHG groups have formed various large ad hoc teams to simultaneously appear on such shows of six major TV stations around the country, including the state TV, tonight, while the groups' other members were doing their own New Year's Eve special theater performances at their respective exclusive theaters around the country: :oh:



^ The 2nd, main song in this live-broadcast footage is one of their currently over 100 original songs.

[EDIT 1]
^ One of those ad hoc teams, also from SNH48, performing their current latest single on such show in the Macau SAR (Special Administrative Region), the so-called Chinese Las Vegas (actually it's already well surpassed Las Vegas in betting & entertainment business revenues nowadays), tonight, which was produced & aired by another major satellite TV station:

http://video.weibo.com/show?fid=1034:d8 ... f&type=mp4

[EDIT 2]
^ Another ad hoc team, from GNZ48, performing their current single on such show of another major satellite TV station:



^ I like their "sailor senshi" costumes. :cool:

The group ace of SNH48 rendering a short version of a theme of a fantasy drama in which she also stars, at an event celebrating domestic dramas, aired tonight, while being watched by several of her teammates in the 2nd team below the stage:



[EDIT]
[Re: The last part of the preceding post] A pic of their group ace during that performance:

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/006jARhJgw1 ... 1dxb2c.jpg

While she often looks girlishly cute & all, she's got a surprisingly pretty mature - & pleasant - voice. :cool:

A few glimpses of the now-completed, luxurious-looking exclusive theater of SHY48, which still hasn't debuted yet but has already been recruiting its 2nd-generation members :ohmy: - from a Japanese fansite:

http://snh48.info/2017/01/9878/

It's located inside a huge, theme-park-like shopping mall in the capital of a northeastern province bordering N. Korea. :)

[EDIT]
[Re: The former part of the preceding post] She & her teammates performing an abridged version of their last single at that event:

A very brief recap of the SNHG groups appearing on various TV channels on New Year's Eve lately - pretty much anyone switching on the TV in the country at the time would see them: lol



^ Note that I haven't linked the footage of all those appearances here.

[EDIT]
[Re: The former part of the preceding post] Some bigger pics of that theater, from their official site just opened today - their debut performance there will be held pretty soon:

http://www.shy48.com/Public/home/img/th ... terEx1.jpg

http://www.shy48.com/Public/home/img/th ... terEx2.jpg

http://www.shy48.com/Public/home/img/th ... terEx5.jpg

http://www.shy48.com/Public/home/img/th ... terEx6.jpg

It's currently the largest exclusive theater among all the SNHG groups. :)

^ That's the closing performance of that show right after the countdown, & the opening performance (a medley) was done by them too: :oh: :cool:



The SNHG groups also did the most number of performances on the setlists of some of such shows, comparing to other artists.

A shot taken at an SNHG concert tonight, which's one of their biggest events in the year, lasting for well over four hours, held at the biggest indoor venue in SNH48's home city, & featuring all their current four groups from various parts of the country:

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZly1 ... 0nodjo.jpg

More updates on it later. :)

[EDIT 1]
Pics of some of the teams of GNZ48 performing that staple 48 Group ritual at the backstage before the opening of that concert:

http://ww4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZly1 ... 0zk1ky.jpg

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZly1 ... 0xchdt.jpg

Currently there're 13 teams w/i the entire SNHG. :)

[EDIT 2]
The current newest group of SNHG, SHY48 (so they all must be shy girls :lol: ), also debuted in the concert - here's the emblem of their 1st team, designated "Team SIII" (the background color is also that team's - as well as that group's - theme color):

^ Ah, their 2nd team hasn't debuted yet, nor has their 3rd team even formed yet - that team is to be formed by their currently still-recruiting 2nd-generation members.

[EDIT 1]
Just a few photos from the concert (there're tons of pics from it, of course lol ):

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly1 ... 31eb2c.jpg

^ Their group ace rendering her solo number - note that she's actually both a violinist & pianist herself, but in this performance she only did the vocals while those two instruments were played by other persons: lol



[EDIT 1]
^ And their #2-ranked performing hers - note that she's also a huge fan of both gothic-lolita costumes & the Takarazuka revue, so the song is like tailor-made for her: :cool:



[EDIT 2]
^ Of course, their New Year song, jointly performed by members from the various SNHG groups:

^ An official report on it by BEJ48 - the setlist of the 50 songs performed is shown in the last pic, but some of their latest numbers actually performed aren't included on it (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

http://www.bej48.com/news/show-340.html

Over 200 of their current nearly 300 SNHG members performed in it. :)

^ Ah, note that the numbers on that setlist were performed from the bottom one to the top. Those 50 songs were determined by fan voting on more than 500 candidate numbers, which cover nearly all of their current songs (only the very new ones - some of which were also performed - & a few others were excluded).

[EDIT 1]
^ A few more clips of the concert - the 1st one, of a lesbian-themed song performed by an ace of SNH48's 2nd team & the "darling" of their 3rd team:



[EDIT 2]
^ The immensely popular & pretty brainy captain of their 2nd team rendering a solo version of an arguably most important song in 48 Group history:

^ The group members were shocked by the announcement of their very 1st "brother group" during it XD - their management has kept the secret pretty well. lol

Forgotten to mention that the fan voting wasn't just on the numbers to be performed, but also on who sang what &, for the non-solo numbers, who was to be the center girl or lead singer (as well as the positions of all the other performers of the number), hence their fans in effect actually - & significantly - participated in the production of the concert. :)

^ The immensely popular & pretty brainy captain of their 2nd team rendering a solo version of an arguably most important song in 48 Group history:


This should be the last one to be posted here - a stage song by their 4th team, which's the title number of the team's current latest stage:



For the other numbers not linked here, you may search them on YouTube by using the words "SNH48第三届年度金曲大赏BEST 50". :)

Pics of some of the teams of GNZ48 performing that staple 48 Group ritual at the backstage before the opening of that concert:

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZly1 ... 0xchdt.jpg

Currently there're 13 teams w/i the entire SNHG. :)

A very brief footage of that ritual in action - 1stly the group-wide one & then the team ones:


Here's a longer video record of that for anyone interested, in which you can 1st see the SNHG-wide one (led by the captain of SNH48's 1st team - you can hear her voice in her brief instruction/cheering speech during it - who's the de facto leader of the entire SNH48 as well as all the SNHG groups), then the ones of SNH48's 2nd & 4th teams, & then the BEJ48 one:



[EDIT 1]
^ An official report, by BEJ48, of the large-scale vote-thanking handshaking, phototaking, & signing event held right on the next two days of the concert, jointly held by SNH48, BEJ48, & GNZ48 (SHY48 is too new for such event) - click the pics to view them in their original large sizes (not all the pics have a large-size version, tho):

[EDIT 2]
[Re: The former part of the preceding post] Also, as an award for the center girl of the #1-ranked number on the setlist, i.e. the group ace of SNH48, a solo song is tailor-made for her, & its MV is shot in NYC, so we now know what this is:

BTW, their group ace mentioned at the beginning of this post has just finished her not-yet-disclosed work in NYC & is coming back to the country. :)

The deputy captain of SNH48's 3rd team (currently acting as the team's captain after the departure of its captain earlier) receiving a signed book written by a famous investor & professional in the IT industry:

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... 24gqow.jpg

^ That book is titled "Living by Facing Death" (my translation).

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... 2wze81.jpg

^ He addresses her by her given name on the signed page. :oh:

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... 27z1kx.jpg

^ The happy girl showing that signed page at the backstage.

A Wikipedia article on him:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kai-Fu_Lee

Her blog entry about it today:

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... 174wtj.jpg

^ A summary of it:

- A video of a speech by him has helped her walk out from her low times in life before joining the group.

- He's quoted on his blog the lyrics of one of the group's songs which lyrics are written by her, which makes her very happy.

- She saw him in person for the very 1st time during a vote-appealing theater performance for her (for their General Election) two years ago & received his encouragement, giving her big courage & confidence (she was still a newbie at the time).

- During a rehearsal today, he called her by her name after that meeting of them a couple of years ago, & she felt the great joy & excitement of fans being remembered by their idols by their names!

- She describes him as a tutor on life matters for many young people & a sharp-eyed investor.

- She thanks for his support of the group & hopes to become a formidable person like him one day.

She's also thanked for her "idol's" encouragement & support (while she's an idol herself :lol: ).

Their official blogger was thrilled by that blog entry & quoted it today.

BTW, she's currently in the final year of her university studies, & w/ the departure of her team's captain (as well as a team ace due to severe depression) & the launching of the team's very 1st original new stage later (the group has invested heavy resources on the production of that stage, treating it as a milestone for the group), this year promises to be an uber busy one for her.

A group photo of those members from all the current SNHG groups performing in their "B50" concert lately, who constitute about 2/3 of the current total number of SNHG members, shot on the stage after the concert:

http://livedoor.blogimg.jp/lianying/img ... 0ad534.jpg

^ The two members at the far left on the front row are the captain (left) & deputy captain (formerly captain) of SNH48's 1st team, who're the allies w/i the group forming its very "core," & the former is also the supreme leader of both the group & SNHG. Their group ace is, of course, at the middle of the front row, flanked (but being kept a respectful distance) by the #2- (right) & #3-ranking members, both of whom are her teammates in the 2nd team, w/ the latter also being the team's deputy captain. (I can't describe all of them here, of course, nor am I familiar w/ everyone of them anyway. lol )

It's taken them four years to grow from the original 20-odd members to that (note that the pic only shows approx. 2/3 of them), which's far quicker than their former sister organization AKBG in Japan. :oh: BTW, tomorrow is their 4th anniversary, & their newest sister group SHY48 will perform their debut stage at their exclusive theater on the same day, which's also the grand opening day of the theater. Also, a small commemorative concert of SNH48 will be held at their debut venue four years ago tomorrow, which won't be broadcast live like the "B50" one.

Members from SNH48's 2nd & 3rd teams walking the red carpet of a net movie event today:



^ The "big brother" of their 2nd team is acting like, well, a big brother, :lol: while the most senior member there, the deputy captain of the same team, is only watching. lol

And their performing their last single in that event:

A moving micro documentary following a GNZ48 member lately:



^ Some explanations:

- She's a Shanghainese & has never come home since joining the group based in (pretty far-away) Guangzhou nearly 10 months ago.

- Even when she'd finally come back to Shanghai for the "B50" concert lately, she'd got no time to come home.

- Her parents didn't come to that concert to see her.

- But in the handshaking/phototaking/signing event also held there on the next two days right after the concert, two unexpected "fans" came to her booth...

Since there're no clips of official footage from it, here're just a couple of pics:

A manga about SNH48 is serialized on a manga mag - it features the actual group members IRL, not characters role-played by them like in some other manga:

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/d2b9b856gw1 ... 23u1he.jpg

^ The cover of the mag's current latest issue, featuring the photos & manga versions of their current top three ranking members.

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/d2b9b856gw1 ... 0pcth1.jpg

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/d2b9b856gw1 ... 0qr7ca.jpg

^ Shots of a few pages of it.

A couple of BEJ48 members in their current Lunar New Year stage costumes demonstrating how to prepare some Lunar Yearend dishes on a program:

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxjw1 ... 2dck79.jpg

http://ww4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxjw1 ... 2dc4gn.jpg

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxjw1 ... 2dc1g2.jpg

^ The latter two pics feature their group ace, who's also the captain of their 1st team. :)

[EDIT]
^ Ah, that knife she holds in the last pic is censored by the govt. censors due to the depiction of excessive violence. :lol:

They've also produced this special MV for the anniversary, released today:



[EDIT 1]
^ And a media report about SHY48 on that big day:



^ As seen in the clip, the captain of SNH48's 2nd team was invited as a guest-of-honor during the occasion. :)

[EDIT 2]
^ A look around the training & living complex of SHY48, & then a stage number performed by their 1st team in their debut stage:



[EDIT 3]
^ An official report on their debut stage & the grand opening of the theater, w/ many pics:
