Seriously, it hurt so much to see Miichan in this condition. I think this is the first time she cut her hair. Well, congrats to Shunkan Bunshun for destroying her and Masuda Yuka's career in just a few months. And to think that Miichan is 1st generation member! T-T But at least she didn't graduate.... Miichan's fans, show your love to her in the next election!

Edit: Okay, I think this is too sweet to be ignored. 1st generation member (minus Kojima Haruna). Even Acchan's there! Apparently, Takamina also cut her hair (It is far more shorter than when she get haircut because her hair burned). Not sure about Acchan though, because I think she wear extension before, so I don't know her original hair length From Itano Tomomi's twitter

What. She's a 1st generation member. And just because some guys are probably jealous that she might or might not be dating Alan, she gets demoted? Makes me wonder why I'm an AKB48 fan.

I wish there was something I could do as international fan.

Miichan, stay strong.

Edit: Maybe graduating would've been better than publicly humiliating her.

"I wish there was something I could do as international fan"

Well there are some fans taking about doing a letter of support, perhaps you can do that.

"Maybe graduating would've been better than publicly humiliating her"

Both would be bad as she says in the video she doesn't want to leave.

Poor Miichan. On another note...I haven't seen a negative fan comment yet...

Unlike with some of the other girls where there was many negative comments.

Everyone is still supporting her.

Yea, I'm glad I haven't come across any cynical comments so far.

Though one main difference between Miichan's case and the others' is that she hasn't actually denied the allegations.... so I guess there's really no room for those nasty "I bet she's lying" etc comments.

Agree. Apparently girls aren't sexual beings?

Idol rules disgust me.

This is ridiculous and disgusting

Just left a very angry message at AKB48 youtube channel.

This is just disgusting how the management is treating her.

so the girl is punished and the boy get away almost without a peep...
those fan are sick, I made the mistake of going to tumblr and some people think it's right to punish idols, I mean if she was a pedo or a murderer ok but punishing someone for not conforming to your sick fantasies is so wrong.

Alan is not an idol, so he's kind of free to date.

this is depressing ;_;

I feel so sad for her. The way she looked while I was watching her statement completely broke my heart. I don't follow AKB48 as much as others, but I always had a fondness towards Mii-chan. On the other hand, words can merely express how sickened I am by the way these idol agency's have such strict no-date "rule's." Poor girl. ):

i am disgusted at the management of AKB. I am disgusted at the rules that force women to do this as a form of punishment. She cut her hair on her own? I DUN THINK SO. I am sure they did this to her to humiliate and punish her and they mande an example out of her so that the other members won't do the same.
It makes me sick and I wanna vomit on every dellusional fan of any group who thinks that because they are fan they can affect someone's life. I am in awe and utter disgust!

I feel like they are all bullshit! This whole "omg it's my fav he/she won't date ever. DA FUQ or the worst "omg this girl is dating this girl i ship them she should be dating this person instead of someone else UGH stupid i won;t be a fan anymore" ...yeah I am disgusted at dellusional idiots who think like this.

I dun think that one day the agencies decided to make the female idols be treated like this . i think it is the mind of the FAN that makes the agencies act in this way because if the fans were not like that then obviously the agencies would not have forced this girl to do something so degrading.

this goes lower than humiliation. I want someone to poor honey on the management of AKB and then make feathers fall on them and be stuck on them while walking in the middle of the street! MONSTERS >o<

Sickening men forcing women to be like that just cause they can

I was never a Fan of AKB and right now I am very happy that I am not. i cannot support this kind of behavior towards a woman

IT'S BECAUSE SHE IS A WOMAN THAT THIS HAPPENED. I DUN THINK THAT THEY WOULD HAVE DONE SUCH A THING TO A MAN.
(i put aside Jin cause lol he did mess up but at least he is happy with his baby and wifey)

that;s why i dun ship real people, that's why i dun have OTP's and that's why i dun have any crazy expectations that my idol will marry me. Heck that;s just utterly stupid no matter how someone looks at it. I may joke about it but i never mean it.

end of rant

I hope for the poor girl to get back on her feet. her hair will grow back soon and until then i plead for her to wear a wig ><

excuse my typos or whatever but i am very upset! >< my keyboard was on fire while i was typing this text

TBH once I got over the shock and anger, I feel like it's a ploy of the management to make people side with her. Really not a good move though.

It's always sad that the girls get the short end of the stick, but while AKB's management has always made questionable decisions, they do give some chances (well, to the popular ones). Sashihara was packed off from AKB after her scandal but it's practically like she never left, Watanabe Miyuki from NMB48 was suspended from one single but now she's getting a lot of exposure and being promoted a lot.
liniang 31st-Jan-2013 03:58 pm (UTC)
This is too much. She's my favorite member in AKB48. I can't stand see her like that. I mean, look at her: she's seriously broken. I feel sorry for her. Lot of idols made the same mistake and I don't remember seeing someone like this. What a humilliation!

I don't understand why other idols deal with a scandal more easily. Sashihara produced that idol festival with her as the main show. How could she recover so easily? I don't see Miichan doing something like that.

I feel sorry for her.

Exactly. No hate for Sasshi whatsoever but her moving to HKT48 (which is just the start of a series of other girls having double group activities), isn't even a 'punishment'. There's the other NMB girl (Shimada Rena), who was also given the opportunity to be voted back into the group and ended up being Team M's captain, whereas several other AKB girls had to leave...or end up w/ severe consequences like Miichan. Wtf is that all about.

I just can't. Miichan doesn't deserve this at all. She probably takes it harder, being a Gen 1 pioneer member and all, but it is just unfair to her.

I remembered Abe Natsumi back when she was caught sleeping at some guy's apartment and she easily got out of that saying she was "just playing Playstation", and I lol'd. No management demoting her, no punishment, no nothing. Oh wells. Different eras I guess.
liniang 31st-Jan-2013 04:08 pm (UTC)
I remember that. LOL

The perfect excuse.
