A PV for a famous number in the current stage of SNH48's 4th team, covered by a 1st-generation & a 2nd-generation members in their 1st team, who're also in the PV, released yesterday - its theme is on lesbian (as well as inter-species - between a human & a mermaid lol ) romance:



The quality of both composition & lyrics in this original song has already clearly surpassed that in the AKB48 ones of the similar types/genres. :oh: :cool:

BTW, both of those group members are towering girls - in fact, that 1st-generation one had long been the tallest among all the SNHG groups for years only until very recently. lol

A still of a couple of prominent BEJ48 members from a historical comedy - the one at the right is playing an imperial concubine, whereas the other one her servant, both donning the women's typical costumes during the Tang Dynasty:

That stage debuted today. :)

A relatively detailed media report on that debut:



The stage has marked their yet another breakthru - its conceptual theme, the lyrics/composition/arrangement of its numbers, its choreography, & its costume designs/production have all pretty notably surpassed not only those of their previous ones, but the AKBG ones too. :oh:

While they're still inheriting a number of key genes of AKB48, I think they're currently morphing into something very different & of a whole new, different level - it's intriguing to see how this'll unfold in due course. :)

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 3k0u0x.jpg

^ They should mount loudspeakers on those buses too, & those group members running in the election should stand on the upper deck & make their election speeches. :lol:

[EDIT]
A nice MV for a nostalgic stage number rendered by a top dancer of SNH48's 1st team, who's also that only character in the MV:



^ Their towering "fashion queen" looks pretty cool in it. :cool:

The MV for the current latest single of COLOR GIRLS, a subgroup of SNH48, shot in Australia & released today:



^ As I've said here recently, you can only see four members of the originally 5-member subgroup in the MV, due to the departure of a 5th-team member after a scandal, but they've just recruited a lovely new member from the 4th team, whom you can see talking briefly at the very end of the clip (her qipao-styled dress looks both cool & cute, BTW :cool: =^_^= ).

The interim results of the current SNHG General Election have been announced tonight:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 2m1qv5.jpg

^ The column titles from left to right: Rank, Team (also including the group names), Name, & Number of Votes. I'll get back on this later & meanwhile, see the expressions of the members of GNZ48's 2nd team while watching the live broadcast of that announcement, at the cafe inside their exclusive theater: lol

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 0tnqck.jpg

^ Except for the one in a white stage costume in the pic, they're donning the team's current stage uniforms.

Meanwhile, members of their other teams were watching it at the canteen in their training & living complex:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 2kwqv7.jpg

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 2kwb2b.jpg

^ The atmosphere is intense.

[EDIT]
[Re: The interim results mentioned above] Some simple remarks/comments (all refering to SNH48, unless stated otherwise):

#1: The 2nd team's comedian; #2 in the last election.
#2: Group ace from the 2nd team; #1 in the last election.
#3: Deputy captain of the 2nd team; same position in the last election.
#4: Captain of the 2nd team; #5 in the last election.
#5: Top dancer of the 2nd team; #9 in the last election.
#6: A popular Cantonese member of the 2nd team; #4 in the last election.
#7: Deputy captain of the 1st team; #6 in the last election; highest position of the team.

#8: "Big brother" of the 2nd team; #7 in the last election.
#9: Top dancer of the 1st team; "fashion queen"; #11 in the last election.
#10: "Sexy queen" from the 1st team; #25 in the last election.
#14: Group ace of GNZ48; highest position of the group & all non-SNH48 groups.

#19: Group ace of BEJ48 (also captain of their 1st team); highest position of the group.
#20: Group ace of SHY48; highest position of the group.
#29: Captain of the 1st team; #12 in the last election.

#57: A popular 1st-team member; #8 in the last election - what a big drop (w/o any scandals nor negative news)! :(
#63: A popular 4th-team member; #16 in the last election - another big drop (also w/o scandals nor negative news)! :(
#65: The only other SHY48 member ranked - a pretty bad result for the youngest, struggling SNHG group plagued by tons of management, personnel, & other problems, even tho their group ace has done quite well in this ranking. *sigh*

I might add more remarks/comments on the individual SNHG members ranked &/or give some overall comments later, depending on whether I've got the time. :)

Have come across w/ three nice fanarts of SNH48 members, reposted by their official blogger today:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/8970d16bgy ... 111k4e.jpg

^ Their group ace, after being enthroned to her current #1 rank in the final results announcement event of their last General Election.

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/8970d16bgy ... 28gwoe.jpg

^ The "big brother" of their 2nd team, donning the team's current formal summer uniform.

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/8970d16bgy ... 0xcwha.jpg

^ The deputy captain of their 1st team, making a speech after her current #6 rank was announced in the above-mentioned event, in her dress uniform of the team at the time.

I like the last one most. :cool:

[EDIT]
An MV of a popular stage song of SNH48, rendered by a member of their 2nd team, who's also featured in the MV:



She's been the youngest member of the team, but is growing up fast recently, looking more & more mature, cool, & sexy. :cool:

Posters of three prominent SNH48 members for an upcoming movie:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/0063sXe6gy ... 2d7ayb.jpg

^ The charismatic deputy captain of their 1st team.

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/0063sXe6gy ... 2d71aj.jpg

^ The ace of their 3rd team known for her good singing & nice body.

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/0063sXe6gy ... 2d7as5.jpg

^ Another popular 3rd-team member, w/ an exotic look which can entitle her to play an alien or half-alien crew member on a starship in a Star Trek series. :D

[EDIT]
This map from a Japanese fansite shows the locations of all the current five SNHG groups (denoted in their respective logos on the map) around the country:

[Re: The latter part of the preceding post] Their next new sister group is likely to be based in a major inland city located right between CKG48 & SNH48 on that map. BTW, on the map you can also see parts of southwestern Japan at the right margin, N. & S. Koreas right below SHY48, the Russian Far Eastern city Vladivostok, a former Chinese coastal city, at the top right corner (denoted in Russian), Mongolia at the top left (several SNHG members come from bordering Inner Mongolia, BTW), & the northern parts of the Southeast Asian countries Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, & the Philippines at the bottom (from left to right). :)

GNZ48 performing an AKB48 classic at a stadium tonight for a soccer event, after their being introduced by a couple of 5th-team members of SNH48:



^ They're donning the current formal summer uniforms of their respective teams, which's appropriate for such occasion. :)

I might add more remarks/comments on the individual SNHG members ranked &/or give some overall comments later, depending on whether I've got the time. :)

Looks like I don't have much time lol - just saying here that while SNH48 is still dominating in the ranking, both BEJ48 & GNZ48 have performed decently in it, w/ the latter doing even better than the former in both the number of ranked members & the position of the highest ranking one (it was the exact opposite in the last election). As for SNH48, it seems that their 2nd team have further consolidated their lead at the expense of their 1st team, which can be seen as an ongoing trend.

The MV for the theme of a historical movie starring several SNH48 members & a game based on it, featuring footage from the movie (the theme isn't rendered by an SNH48 member):

A couple of BEJ48 members during an election campaigning activity at their exclusive theater today for the current SNHG General Election:

^ They're donning their team's current formal summer uniform. :)

[EDIT 1]
A fan-made MV for a classic, representative number of AKB48, featuring various past footage of GNZ48's 2nd team, many of which I haven't shown here before:



^ The song, which title can be translated as "Hey Girls!", is also one of my favorite AKB48 ones. :)

[EDIT 2]
[Re: The 1st part of this post] More pics of that in this official report on it (right-click the pics to view them in their original huge sizes):

Just a quick update that the appointments of the captain & deputy captain of SHY48's 1st team were finally announced yesterday - both positions had long been vacant ever since the team was formed. :)

A cool MV for a pretty retro/70s-J-pop-styled stage number of SNH48's 2nd team, rendered by an ace of the team, who's also featured in the MV - released today:



^ The title of the song can be translated as "The So-called Meaning of Life." :)

A promotion video for the current SNHG General Election playing on an outdoor screen downtown in the Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region):

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0qoag0.jpg

^ Note that the words shown on the screen are rendered in traditional, non-simplified characters, which're still being used in the SAR (as well as the Macau SAR, Taiwan, & some overseas Chinese communities, BTW), instead of the simplified ones used on the Mainland. BTW, at the lower right corner you can see a profile portrait of Chairman Mao in an army uniform w/ a red background - he seems to be watching the screen. XD

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0qodln.jpg

The opening page of a manga based on the BEJ48 members:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly ... 273u0y.jpg

[EDIT 1]
An MV for a cool number from the current stage of SNH48's 3rd team covered by the "big brother" of their 2nd team & the "sexy queen" of their 1st team, who're also featured in the MV:



The two mature group members are also personal good friends. :)

[EDIT 2]
Behind-the-scenes footage of some SNH48 members shooting their current latest image pics for their upcoming trading cards:



^ So they've become million dollar babies. :lol:

Some of the ads for the current SNHG General Election around the capital at present:

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly ... 0xc4bf.jpg

^ This one features the "God 7" members returned in their last election.

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly ... 0xcgry.jpg

^ This one features the members of BEJ48's 2nd team - the group is based in the capital.

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly ... 2dphdu.jpg

^ This one is that same promotion video playing in Hong Kong, mentioned in the preceding post - only that the words are in simplified characters instead.

A brief cheering/well-wishing video message, addressed to all the SNHG members running in the election, for the election's upcoming final results announcement event/concert from a writer, scriptwriter, & celebrated lyricist, who's written the quality lyrics of their many songs:

http://p.weibo.com/show/channerWbH5/103 ... b431d7ad3f

^ I like how his cute lil daughter is looking at him while he's speaking. =^_^= The last two words of the message, spoken by him & then her, mean "do your best." BTW, she could also join an SNHG group some years later. XD

[EDIT]
The MV for the theme of a historical game rendered by five prominent SNH48 members respectively from their 2nd to 5th teams (one of them, the "dancing queen" of their 2nd team, isn't featured in the MV, tho, due to her packed work schedule at the time, but you can still see her commenting immediately after the MV), which also features some behind-the-scenes footage of them shooting image pics for the game:

Several members of SNH48's 2nd team representing the group to receive a best-concert-of-the-year award today for their General Election final results announcement event/concert last year:

A funny footage of three foreigners from different countries watching last year's SNHG General Election final results announcement event - they're talking in both English & Mandarin while watching it: lol



^ I'm sure the woman in the middle is a Russian, whereas one (or both?) of the two guys is an American, as I recall. :)

The MV for the current latest single of COLOR GIRLS, a subgroup of SNH48, shot in Australia & released today:



^ As I've said here recently, you can only see four members of the originally 5-member subgroup in the MV, due to the departure of a 5th-team member after a scandal, but they've just recruited a lovely new member from the 4th team, whom you can see talking briefly at the very end of the clip (her qipao-styled dress looks both cool & cute, BTW :cool: =^_^= ).

The dance version of that MV, released today:
