Finally, the dedicated HP for SNHG's summer EP was opened today:

http://www.snh48.com/event/s194/

^ Some brief notes from it:

- It's a joint production of all the current four SNHG groups, i.e. SNH48, BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48.
- It has four versions, & the various versions contain 14 original numbers in total, w/ different attached items in different versions.
- Its title number is rendered by 32 selected members from the above-mentioned four groups, w/ the MV shot in Australia. The other numbers are respectively done by all the current 13 teams of those groups.
- There're a number of peripheral items sold separately.

It's one of their annual major productions. :)

The soundtrack of the full version of that title number, released today:



As I recall, I've said here in the past that there're 24 selected members rendering the song & shooting its MV in Australia, but that "24" is only based on their previous practice on their summer EPs, & it's actually "32" this time, as mentioned in the above quote - that's a record number of selected members working on their singles so far. :)

They've also announced today this year's SNHG General Election, which'll commence later this month & be completed at the end of July. There're tons of info about it as well as some other related announcements on this official page:

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2253.html

^ I don't have the time to cover it here (so you may read it yourself if you know the language), but will report on this thread those upcoming events mentioned in it as they happen in due course. Just saying here that it'll be even way bigger on various aspects than in the last year, reflecting their continuing spectacular growth.

They've released more info on it today - my highlights of it immediately below their corresponding screencaps:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0n3acd.jpg

- A total of 66 members, divided into four groups, will be elected from all their current four SNHG groups.
- In addition, 16 members will be respectively elected from BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48.

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

- The elected members will record their dedicated singles, which MVs will be respectively shot in Italy, the UAE, & China.
- The #1-ranked member will have her own custom-made solo single & its MV, as well as her personal exclusive concert.
- The top three ranking members will have their huge images displayed at the key locations in the main districts of four major cities, including the capital.
- The elected members will be cast in various movies & TV dramas, including the main cast of a military drama in collaboration w/ the PLA.

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

- The elected members will be offered the priority to work as the spokespersons of various domestic & foreign brands.
- The elected members will appear on various variety shows as hosts or guests.
- The top 16 ranking members of BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48 will respectively record their dedicated singles & shoot the MVs of those singles.

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0o5jt3.jpg

- The voting period will last from June to July.
- A commencement ceremony will be held at the start of June.
- The preliminary & interim results will be respectively announced in mid June & early July.
- A warm-up event will be held at the end of July, w/ the final results announcement concert held on the next day at the same venue.

A neat, cartoonish summary of it posted by their official blogger today to give an instant idea on the whole thing:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 5797wh.jpg

Footage of the group ace of SNH48 starring in a latest sports drama - it's pretty rare for her to appear in dramas/movies set in the present time lol (note that there're some sexually suggestive scenes in the footage, but nothing big):


A poster of her for that drama:

That EP is currently selling like cakes, w/ 100,000 copies sold in five mins. on the 1st day today! :ohmy: And some of its versions were even sold out. Here's an official report on it, w/ pics of the physical-shop sales at the exclusive theaters of all the current four SNHG groups today - note that some of the group members were helping as shop assistants: lol

That MV will be released later. :)

[EDIT]
A 3rd-team member of SNH48 showing her guitar skills in rendering a popular J-pop number at a theater performance of the team today:



The multi-talented fluent Japanese speaker was originally a huge SNH48 fan herself just a few years ago, who used to frequent their exclusive theater to watch their performances there & was fairly well-known among their fans, but she later decided to join the group & succeeded in their auditions, hence changing her identity from a fan to an idol. lol

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 684b2a.jpg

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 6584qr.jpg

It's their very 1st time performing there. :)

[EDIT]
Have come across w/ two nice private pics of the captain of SNH48's 3rd team, probably shot in Australia during their shooting of their current summer single's MV over there earlier - I usually don't post their private pics here, but these two just look so good: :cool:

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... 2iob2e.jpg

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... 2iohdy.jpg

She's currently pretty nervous for her defense of her paper in front of her professors tomorrow XD - hope everything will be OK & she'll graduate smoothly. :)

The "sexy queen" of SNH48 covering Hey Jude at a theater performance of their 1st team, i.e. her team, yesterday (the top vocalist of the team, who's one of her best friends in the team, joined her in the midst):



Wish they'd cover more classics from the Beatles. :D

[EDIT 1]
These days even BEJ48's newly formed 3rd team, who're all newbies, get the chance to walk on the red carpet of an event: lol



^ I like the team's current stage uniform. :cool:

[EDIT 2]
[Re: The 1st part of this post] An official report on that theater performance, which's dedicated to her birthday, released today, w/ many nice & cool pics (right-click to view them in their original large sizes):

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2277.html

^ The 1st pic shows an uber cool & classy birthday decoration setup at the 1/F lobby of their exclusive theater, installed by the birthday event organizing committee of her fanclub. :cool:

Her parents were also there to watch the theater performance, & they're warmly greeted by her fans.

The 1st-generation member is also a member of their recently debuted seven-member elite subgroup 7SENSES. :)

She's passed it. So now hope she'll also do well in their upcoming General Election. :)

[EDIT 1]
^ Her brief election manifesto, released today:



^ She wants every member of her team to be elected. :ohmy:

[EDIT 2]
A nice shot of the captain of SNH48's flagship 1st team, who's also the de facto leader of the entire group, on an immensely popular talk show in the country tonight:

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/b5d6209fgy1 ... 35b1l2.jpg

^ Note that for some reasons, she's donning the formal summer uniform of their 3rd team.

The founding, 1st-generation member is one of the group members having a higher, tertiary level of education. :)

The jacket cover of the 2nd solo mini album of the group ace of SNH48:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0u0n0n.jpg

The MV for its main number was shot in the States - now we finally know why she was there earlier. :)

[EDIT 1]
^ It's also notable that one of its other numbers is wholly rendered in English. :oh:

[EDIT 2]
^ They've opened a dedicated HP for it today, w/ many nice, albeit not large, pics:

http://www.snh48.com/event/s195/

^ A partial outline of the page:

- Soundtrack of its main number.
- Items/contents of the package.
- A number of her tiny ( :roll: ) scrolling image pics.
- Peripheral items.
- Her exclusive birthday/fan-meeting event at which she'll perform its numbers live, among other activities.
- Items of the event's package, including her personal photobook & a DVD of behind-the-scenes footage from the MV shootings.

A funny & sexy (?) election manifesto of a top dancer of SNH48's 1st team, released today:



^ She wanna enter into the "God 7" elected group, i.e. the top seven positions, as shown on those words on her T-shirt (she also crosses those words meaning "dreaming" out lol ).

Good luck to her! :keke:

Now a much longer (as well as more fanservicey lol ) one, from which you can pretty much get an idea of what the actual MV itself - due to be released very soon - is about:



[EDIT]
^ Several fanservices official image pics of some of the selected members working on the MV & that title number, posted on this page of a Japanese fansite today (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

http://snh48.info/2017/05/10807/

^ Don't have the time to describe those selected members here - you may refer to those captions if you can read Japanese. :)

An incident during the start of a theater performance of SNH48's 1st team just lately:



^ All those three members of the team are newbies, & that guy was later handled by the police.

It's their very 1st incident of this kind - hope they won't repeat what happened to AKB48 in Japan in the recent years, as they're becoming bigger & bigger nowadays. *sigh*

[EDIT]
The 1st teams of GNZ48 & SHY48 performing a popular number together at a joint-group theater performance at the former group's exclusive theater today - the latter group was performing there as a visiting guest group:



^ The 1st-team members of GNZ48 are wearing the green skirts of the team's current formal uniform.

The already pretty wide stage of that theater together w/ the additional mini stages at its each side is especually suitable for such performances w/ a large number of performers. :cool:

Presently the only SNHG member from Hong Kong, who's assigned to the 1st team of GNZ48, rendering a Canto-pop work at a theater performance of the team today:



The hilarious/humorous girl, who can speak flawless Mandarin (which's rare for Hongkongers lol ), is currently hosting a net show teaching Cantonese. :)

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2205.html

^ I like that drama poster featuring her. :cool:

She's a graduate of a prestigious university-level acting school in the capital.

Her performing the theme of that drama at a theater performance of that team yesterday, while donning her costume in the drama:



Besides acting, she's also good in singing. :cool:

[Re: The 2nd last post above] The full MV, released today:



^ Question: so the blue pirates used remote radio control to detonate the bomb on their stolen ship, & at that far distance? :question: :ohmy:

[EDIT 1]
^ Maybe both that bomb & that detonator were actually IoT devices, & they detonated the former via the net? :lol:

[EDIT 2]
A newbie not looking like a newbie: an official report on a birthday special theater performance for a pretty mature 7th-generation member in SNH48's 2nd team yesterday - it's their very 1st such theater performance for a member of that generation, as well as her own very 1st one after joining the group (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2294.html

^ The 1st pic shows a cardboard featuring an uber cool image pic of her in a historical drama, in which she plays a military commander. :cool:

The former flight attendant not only looks mature, but also had already got social experiences before joining the group, unlike many other newbie members.

[EDIT 3]
An official report on a special theater performance of SNH48's immensely popular 2nd team for the Dragon Boat Festival a couple of days ago, w/ a heavy incorporation of traditional Chinese elements (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

[Re: The 1st part of the preceding post] A pic of the center girl of the MV/single, who's the deputy captain of SNH48's 2nd team & plays the commander of the blue pirates in it - for the obvious reason, they usually picked a talented group member to be the center girl of their summer singles in the past, but the one for this year is an exception: lol

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/6f7e36cfgy ... 2bchdw.jpg

The graduate in Japanese studies is the "team whip" in charge of disciplinary (as well as financial) matters in the team. :)

And an official image pic of a charismatic & popular 2nd-generation member in their 1st team for the MV/single:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 1hcaj0.jpg

She's actually from the same generation as the above-mentioned deputy captain, but most of the 2nd-generation members are assigned to their 2nd team.

[EDIT]
A pic of the reception counter of SNHG's management company - notice the name of a not-yet-formed, 5th SNHG group at the bottom left: :wink:

^ As expected, the next SNHG group is to be based in a major inland city of a central region in the country. BTW, the logos at the lower right are of (from top): their own in-house production company, their investment arm, the Chinese edition of a mainstream Japanese fashion mag, & a couple of apps developed by them.

More info about that upcoming group on this page of a Japanese fansite:

A preview of an upcoming documentary on the SNHG:



^ It's so sad to see the captain of SNH48's 5th team (the last interviewee seen in the preview) talking about her team over the past year - among all their five teams, the team was the hardest hit one w/ scandals/crises, vicious outside attacks, & departure/hiatus of key members, even tho they're only the newest team of the group w/ the averagely youngest members (the captain herself was also hit by being disqualified from the membership of their recently formed elite subgroup 7SENSES, due to her failing to meet the subgroup's extra-high standards/requirements on dancing skills). (I haven't mentioned those incidents here, as I don't wanna turn this thread into a gossiping-like one.)

[EDIT]
A hilarious election manifesto of the comedian-member of SNH48's 2nd team, who got the 2nd place in their last General Election &, hence, naturally sets her goal on the top position this time (footage w/ Japanese & Chinese subs):



^ That man & woman are actually their staff. lol

They've formally announced the new group, as well as the recruitment of the group's 1st-generation members, during the official launching event for their General Election tonight - here's the logo of the group, in which you can also see the official theme color:

A pic of a newbie 2nd-generation member of GNZ48's 2nd team during her debut performance at their exclusive theater today:

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 3bkhdu.jpg

^ Nice gun, nice white gun. lol (While it's certainly a fake gun there, it's not necessarily so, as black, metal, & weighty guns can be fake ones, while the white, plastic, & light ones can be genuine, lethal ones, but unless it's a security policy change due to that recent incident of SNH48 I mentioned above lately, we can safely presume that it's fake. :lol: )

^ Question: so the blue pirates used remote radio control to detonate the bomb on their stolen ship, & at that far distance? :question: :ohmy:

[EDIT 1]
^ Maybe both that bomb & that detonator were actually IoT devices, & they detonated the former via the net? :lol:

A live performance of that song by the 1st team of SNH48 at their exclusive theater today:



That's probably their very 1st theater performance of it. :)

Presently the only SNHG member from Hong Kong, who's assigned to the 1st team of GNZ48, rendering a Canto-pop work at a theater performance of the team today:



The hilarious/humorous girl, who can speak flawless Mandarin (which's rare for Hongkongers lol ), is currently hosting a net show teaching Cantonese. :)

Her pretty uniquely rendered election manifesto for their current General Election:



^ That placard says, "the goal: GNZ God 7," i.e. she wanna enter into the top seven positions of all her group's members running in the election (note that merely achieving that doesn't necessarily mean she'd be an elected member among those 66 SNHG-wide ones, but she'd still be, as a reward for it, allocated extra resources by her group, among a number of various other goodies/privilages, in the coming year).

I like her attitude & hilarity. :cool:

Footage of the group ace of SNH48 compiled from their current latest documentary officially released on the net today, w/ Chinese & Vietnamese subs - I'll link that whole thing here later when I find one, hence you may watch this short compilation just as a sample of it for the time being:



[EDIT 1]
^ A brief footage focusing on the captain of their 2nd team, also from that same documentary:



The long-time continuous success of the team is inseparable from her leadership. :)

[EDIT 2]
^ The one on a popular member of their 5th team, who's also a member of their subgroup COLOR GIRLS (previously consisting of five members, but now four after the departure of a member from the same team following a scandal, which hit the team pretty hard):



She may look mature, as well as talking & behaving maturely, but is actually still not an adult. lol
