It’s one of the better Teppoutai songs. I’ve never been too big on all the Teppoutai songs, so this one is pretty nice. Kinda funny how they’re talking about going to a mountain but I’m pretty sure the PV was filmed in like Yokohama haha. Interesting that Miru gets to be center again, figured it’d be Aika/Yuuri or something, and Honori’s position seems to be surprisingly good too.
I wouldn’t say she’s totally irrelevant but I think it’s a variety of combinations that caused her to be sorta displaced. Mostly Ainyan though, who gained a tremendous amount of popularity through Naniwa Nadeshiko and her handshakes. Riichan was still a little kid back then, and Ainyan definitely was more personable in that regard and when management caught on that she was a fan favorite, they began to push her hard. Of course, the scandal happened, and probably coupled with newer members she was just pushed aside instead.
I’m glad I have this bookmarked!
A great SP, better than the AKB one tbh. Everyone was funnier here. Kojipa, Sashi and Sayaka were all a breath of fresh air.

Oh haha. Well, I don’t think she’ll really make senbatsu given how many deserving candidates there are, but Renapyon is someone who more or less needs outside work by herself instead of appearing on Sound Room or Music Station or whatever. I mean, senbatsu would probably mean a ton for her and whatnot but at the same time, I think having a lot of outside work of her own would be just as beneficial!
I would hope she doesn’t graduate, I can’t imagine what she would do since she’s not in high school anymore and whatnot. (I guess go to a vocational school/2-year college like Hirorin). I feel like after 3 years of being stuck in the back she’s finally coming into her own and becoming more confident and gaining tons of work through the Okayama stuff so ostensibly I feel like she’s busy and satisfied, but you never really know with these sorts of things.
