I hope people don't go as low as to hate on little girls because they don't like ~48.

Is Anna half-Japanese? Because she looks like one. o: Anyways, all the girls look adorable.

Her mom is Russian. Crazy as it sounds, she's from the small city I live in (Iwakuni) and my student's daughter went to kindergarten with her!

ahhh we have the same likes. except i'd replace Anai with Wakatabe. and yea i refuse to pay attention to any of the other 48 groups. that's too many girls for me to take note off. i don't have enough memory space for all of them.
icehism 23rd-Oct-2011 09:27 pm (UTC)
So out of the 21 members.. Only 2 want to be a singer?

O.o
cherrypooper 23rd-Oct-2011 09:31 pm (UTC)

The oldest looks young and the youngest looks old.
I read one of the girls was half-Russian. Could that be Anna?

Watanabe Haruka looks cute. ^^
funkaliciousss 24th-Oct-2011 03:27 pm (UTC)

I see oku no. 2 there
itzechan 23rd-Oct-2011 11:37 pm (UTC)
i want to stan Sugamoto and Anna.
taylorniw 23rd-Oct-2011 11:55 pm (UTC)
Don't be silly, OP. Them being little is enough reason for most to hate regardless of whether they're 48-affiliated.


Anyway, I'm already putting down money that Miyawaki Sakura will become popular simply because she's Kojima with much darker skin. I see some cute girls but I definitely see some not so cute ones as well.
liime_arix 24th-Oct-2011 12:24 am (UTC)
Seriously, though, I side eye people who hate on little girls who are actually trying to work towards their dream.
boukenrider 24th-Oct-2011 12:26 am (UTC)
..interesting special skills.

ALSO, "CHARM POINT: EYEBAG" i am not alone in the world
