A pic of the ace of SNH48's 5th team, who's also a member of their subgroup COLOR GIRLS:

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006cq8N0gy1 ... 0zi47w.jpg

The young group member is often seen as a potential candidate of their future group ace. The prospect of her team, however, isn't looking so bright at present, after various unfortunate incidents recently - hope the relatively young team members can get back to their feet soon & wish them good luck in the upcoming SNHG General Election. :)

The final episode of a documentary series on 7SENSES, an elite subgroup of SNH48 - as I recall, it's also the shortest one:



[EDIT 1]
The MV for the current latest solo single of SNH48's group ace, shot in NYC & released today:



[EDIT 2]
Footage of the deputy captain of SNH48's 2nd team compiled from their current latest documentary:

[Re: The 1st part of the preceding post] Forgotten to mention that those seven members of the subgroup represent the senses of smell, taste, vision, hearing, touch, time, & soul, respectively, hence the name of the subgroup. :)

[EDIT]
A promotion video for the upcoming new stage of SNH48's 1st team:



The title of that stage literally means "the 48th area," & can be translated as "Area 48."

A couple of offshots from it featuring a 2nd-generation member in the team, posted by herself today:

http://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/daadc0a6gy1 ... 2iox6p.jpg

BTW, she has an identical-twin sister, who's not a group member (unlike the case of the identical-twin members in SHY48). :)

A 1st-team member of SHY48 singing about each of her teammates, one by one, in her own election campaigning section for their current General Election during the team's theater performance today - the song is adapted from a classic of AKB48's legendary old Team K (the 2nd team) under the leadership of the long-graduated captain Akimoto Sayaka:

More info on the SNHG's General Election final results announcement concert to be held near the end of next month, released today:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0nt45w.jpg

^ Highlights of some of the info:

- It'll be participated by the nearly 300 SNHG members running in the election.
- 66 members will be elected in the nearly-six-hour event, which 1st two hours will be the concert part, followed by the results announcement part.
- In addition, the top 16 members of BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48, respectively, hence totalling 48, will also be announced (note that they may or may not be among those 66 elected members).
- They've opted to sacrifice the audience seats to accommodate the stage complex which can hold nearly 300 persons performing simultaneously.
- The event will be broadcast live on TV, radio, & the net.

BTW, a warming up event will also be held at the same venue on the preceding day of the event, which'll be followed by a two-day-long, large-scale vote thanking event of handshaking, signing, & phototaking. :)

[EDIT 1]
They've opened a dedicated HP today covering all those above-mentioned three related events:

http://www.snh48.com/event/s198/

[EDIT 2]
An official report on a birthday special theater performance of SNH48's 4th team dedicated to the team's pretty low-key but able, hardworking, & beloved captain yesterday, released today (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

The current latest song composed & written by a talented & popular member of SNH48's 2nd team, rendered by herself during a theater performance of the team yesterday:



^ She's forgotten the lyrics she wrote herself, but the audience haven't. XD

Compared to her previous works, this one is much more in folk style, w/ a way simpler arrangement. :)

A couple of members of GNZ48's 1st team working as shop assistants at their shop inside their exclusive theater lately - it's funny that they're donning their stage costumes there: lol

Pics of some prominent members of SHY48's 1st team attending a press conference this afternoon for an upcoming leg of the Fête de la Musique 2017 to be held at their home city, the capital of a northeastern province bordering N. Korea:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 230hdu.jpg

^ A pretty cool & stylish member of the team. :cool:

^ One of the identical-twin members in the team, sitting next to her cool teammate seen in the preceding pic.

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 2307wi.jpg

^ And her twin sister - note that the twin sisters are (deliberately) styled so differently. lol

BTW, the twins are professional acrobats. :)

A poster of the group ace of SNH48 for the live broadcast of her birthday fan-meeting event tonight:

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/6a165c19ly ... 0u0qdv.jpg

Some of the GNZ48 members watching a live broadcast of the announcement of the preliminary results of the current SNHG General Election from SNH48's exclusive theater, at the cafe inside their exclusive theater today:

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 2kwb2c.jpg

^ They're still wearing their stage costumes of their theater performance today. lol

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 2kw4qr.jpg

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 2kwx6r.jpg

^ These couple of pics show their body language &, hence, psychological states during it.

Meanwhile, their other teams not having a theater performance of the day were watching it at the canteen in their training & living complex:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 0tnjyk.jpg

And the SHY48 members were watching it too at the cafe inside their exclusive theater:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 0xcnpd.jpg

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 0xchdt.jpg

As usual, I won't cover those preliminary results here, since they can't reveal anything significant on the final results, even tho they look interesting & even surprising. lol

Even their group ace has to do that too - she was (more appropriately for the occasion) donning her same team's current formal uniform, tho: lol

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 340b29.jpg

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 22ob29.jpg

^ Holding a version of SNHG's current latest EP.

She can look & feel pretty different on stage - during a theater performance: :oh: :cool:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 3vd1ky.jpg

She's a Sailor Moon fan & is often seen donning Usagi's junior high uniform in private as well as on their variety shows. lol

An official report on the debut theater performance of the beefed-up version of the current stage of SNH48's 5th team lately, released today - there're a number of nice photos in it (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2342.html

^ I like the designs of their stage costumes. :cool:

[EDIT]
[Re: The former part of the preceding post] Found a cool shot of her during it: :cool:

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/dab20f8dgy1 ... 3401l3.jpg

^ The other performers around her are her back dancers.

The captain, deputy captain, & former acting captain of SNH48's powerful 2nd team pointing their guns at each other lol - a brief footage from a variety show lately:



^ Their internal power struggle? :lol:

[EDIT 1]
^ Ah, that former acting captain is actually unarmed. lol

[EDIT 2]
A self-produced MV of the Taiwanese member in SNH48's 1st team, released by her today - she's been largely in unofficial, de facto hiatus in the past year after entering a prestigious, university-level acting school, but she's still running in the current SNHG General Election, so this MV may be considered as an electioneering effort of her: lol

Again, the 3rd team of SNH48 represented the entire group to receive an award, at a music awards event held by the state radio today - the award is for their popularity on all types of media in the past year:



^ For those familiar w/ C-pop, the award is presented by Alan Tam, a veteran C/Canto-pop megastar well known in the country - especially the Cantonese-speaking regions - as well as overseas Chinese communities. And the thank-you speech is made by the captain of the team (the deputy captain, who's a Cantonese, is standing right beside her). :)

[EDIT]
^ The team performing their earlier hit at the event:

^ The same trio performing a cool dance on the same show: :cool:



^ The song playing during the dance is one of their stage numbers.

[EDIT]
I've only very briefly mentioned about the earlier serious troubles/crises of SNH48's 5th team recently (they're still recovering from it at present), w/o any details, & I don't think I'll cover them in details here, but for those who wanna explore it & can read Japanese or Chinese, this article on a current latest episode of a talk show produced by them & hosted by the deputy captain of their 1st team, who interviews & has some pretty deep, frank, & daring discussions w/ the captain of their 5th team, her guest, in that episode, has got some pretty readable info about it - the article was posted on a Japanese fansite today:

Again, the 3rd team of SNH48 represented the entire group to receive an award, at a music awards event held by the state radio today - the award is for their popularity on all types of media in the past year:



^ For those familiar w/ C-pop, the award is presented by Alan Tam, a veteran C/Canto-pop megastar well known in the country - especially the Cantonese-speaking regions - as well as overseas Chinese communities. And the thank-you speech is made by the captain of the team (the deputy captain, who's a Cantonese, is standing right beside her). :)

[EDIT]
^ The team performing their earlier hit at the event:


An official report on that, released today (right-click the pics to view them in their original large size):

BTW, the team is known for their excellence in group dance. :)

The soundtrack of a nice number in the current latest solo EP of SNH48's group ace, which's used as the ending theme of an upcoming sports drama starring herself:



^ The song title can be translated as "Thinking of You." :)

^ From left: their group ace, the comedian-member of the team, & herself - the three group members are currently ranked #1, #2, & #3, respectively. :)

A couple of members of GNZ48's 3rd team working as shop assistants at their shop inside their exclusive theater, selling a stack of CDs to a customer-fan who looks like a stereotypical otaku: :lol:

A couple of pics of the deputy captain of SNH48's 4th team posing as an ancient woman in a costume of the period in history:

http://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/005XzBb9gy1 ... 1o0kjl.jpg

^ The costume looks a bit like those traditional Korean ones still worn by Korean women today. :)

That drama actually stars her instead of a teammate of her in their 2nd team - I've mixed up two different dramas & it's now corrected in both the above quote & the post in question (actually done yesterday).

BTW, the opening theme of the drama is also done by her, & is from that EP too. :)

[EDIT 1]
The group ace of SHY48 (partially) rendering the Chinese version of a relatively recent J-pop classic by the legendary Nakajima Miyuki, during her election campaigning session for the current SNHG General Election at their theater performance today:



Like the group ace of SNH48, the petite & pretty popular 1st-generation member in their 1st team knew nothing about AKB48 before joining the group - in fact, she knew little to nothing about SNH48 too! :ohmy:

[EDIT 2]
Some awesome pics of a prominent member of SNH48's 5th team, posted by her today:

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006jCjFigy1 ... 2iob2b.jpg

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006jCjFigy1 ... 2iokjn.jpg

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006jCjFigy1 ... 1e0hdt.jpg

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006jCjFigy1 ... 1ogkjn.jpg

She's also a guitarist & songwriter. :)
