Matsui Jurina And Watanabe Miyuki Head To AKB48

During AKB48's second day of the Saitama Super Arena concert, an announcement was made for the transfer of Matsui Jurina and Watanabe Miyuki to AKB48.

At the end of the concert there were promotions of five members to Team 4. This completes Team 4 with 16 members.

Apart from the promotion announcement, there was also a shocking shuffle of members. One of the most popular and prominent member of SKE48, Matsui Jurina, will be joining AKB48's Team K. While another popular member of NMB48, Watanabe Miyuki will be joining AKB48's Team B.

This is only a limited time transfer and also the two girls will continue to stay in their respective group. They will continue their activities in SKE48 and NMB48 alongside AKB48's.

This announcement was shocking for the two girls as they didn't know beforehand. These two members had been very active in the single releases of their respective groups.

What do you guys think of this announcement? What is Akimoto Yasushi planning? Consider the two girls will continue to stay in NMB48 and SKE48, they will appear much more often.


This article doesn't mention them but it's Kato Rena, Kawaei Rina, Iwata Karen, Tano Yuuka, and Takahashi Juri who are now promoted to Team 4.

taking a break from 48 fandom for a while bc of how angry and sad I am with this announcement.
only going to focus on nogizaka46 dont even care AM NOT OVERREACTING !!!! ;((((((((

edit: i mean i love love love jurina and milky is ok but jurina is overworked to death and she's injured and tired and fainted during s2 at hkt theatre and ske is worried for her. this only means more work for her and ske feeling threatened since their center doesnt belong solely to ske now. Mizuki posted about how she wants people to see ske for ske and not as a part of akb and this is just making things worse. AND i was hoping that karen would b promoted to team k since she loves team k. instead of promoting kks who have been working hard for the day they can be in an official team he has to promote girls who already work so hard and are popular in their own groups. watch him post on g+ about how it wasn't his decision again. so angry T_______T.

matsui is always what's annoyed me most about recent akb, ugh. if anyone needs me i'll be with sukahira 7 pretending nothing ever changed.

I just...I don't know. It's temporary, so I'm not that bothered by the idea of them doing this for awhile in theory. What upsets me is that this was a surprise to Jurina and Milky as well. Jurina's been ill recently, so I'm not sure she can handle this. Maybe if they had used some popular-but-not-ace members of each group it would have worked better. Also, I've been really hoping for Kaoru Mitsumune to take Yonechan's spot, so while that is still a possibility, I don't like that it's being held off.

Yeah; the two of them seemed really upset about it, in the pics I saw, and Milky just sounded confused in the tweets I saw (she kept asking if it was for real and just seemed stunned).
dulces 24th-Mar-2012 07:28 pm (UTC)
ugh I don't like this at all. Jurina works way too hard as it is, adding more work isn't going to do her any good.
wtf are they even thinking?
writerserenyty 24th-Mar-2012 07:29 pm (UTC)
SO mad right now. I hope it's not for too long because these girls work so hard in their respective groups an ugh. When I saw the tweets about it I was miffed, but Milky and Jurina seemed upset, especially in pictures (where Jurina's crying and Milky looks shocked/dead inside).

Still, I'm a Milky oshi, so I'll support her. I'm just worried.

ikr milky's reaction made me really upset for a while. but i think giving her the opportunity to promote with Team B is going to do her good. It's a massive push for her really.
pumpkinskin 24th-Mar-2012 07:40 pm (UTC)
what the fuckery is this?! I'm so confused. Like Jurina really needs more hate from the AKB crowd
modestcat 24th-Mar-2012 08:27 pm (UTC)
Why is Jurina getting hate from the Akb crowd?
dio_elaclaire 24th-Mar-2012 07:47 pm (UTC)
More work (and probably hate) for Jurina. Great idea, really great (━┳━ _ ━┳━)

This fandom is too emotional...=__='
I can't keep up with this anymore....

This is probably just because I'm Sayaka oshi but I saw this and felt better about the whole situation. I trust Sayaka to look after Jurina and not let her overwork herself in K.

why is there a photo of her sticking her breasts out
okadarei 24th-Mar-2012 09:31 pm (UTC)
Is a great oportunity for them, and now that I read the underlined part XD it'll be hard on them to be on two main units o.O I just hope it helps NMB and SKE to be more popular, though they already are... they still can't compete that much on AKB's senbatsu... well, this is what Aki-P had in mind for his units, so I don't see the drama... as long as they don't leave their own respective groups, I guess it's fine with me.

SKE and NMB are doing just fine for such young groups, idg why this stupid push was necessary
mighty_orange 24th-Mar-2012 09:57 pm (UTC)
Wow this is some bullshit. Jurina is injured and ill, she needs time OFF, not double the work. And eurgh the pictures of the announcement are giving me a flashback to the teams shuffle. It's so insensitive not to warn them beforehand. This just sucks.
nalty7 24th-Mar-2012 10:02 pm (UTC)
I accept adding members from sister groups in AKB singles.
But adding members to the teams?And members who are already popular? I don't see why.
Congrats to the girls who got promoted!
Team 8 is coming soon.

Why no add SDN members back?Huh?I'd accept that.
koi_choshi 24th-Mar-2012 11:00 pm (UTC)
There are really some times that I want to murder Aki-P... Poor baby Jurina... :( She shouldn't be overworked like this! Return her to SKE48 RN!
taylorniw 24th-Mar-2012 11:13 pm (UTC)
She's basically an AKB member already. Won't make much difference.
