猪突猛進 ‘chototsumoshin’ is a four kanji idiom meaning to charge at one’s goal like a boar and ‘kachikomi’ means to punch your way in there. So very fitting to Teppen Tottande.
Jinnai is on his way to meet Sayanee/Ripopo in Seoul most likely. Koba and Tamuken too.
Looks to be a fun thing she’s filming with her longtime collaborators. New Year’s specials ftw.

Yeah, Sapporo Dome is notorious for not being able to sell out but otherwise the tour went fine. They filled out Nissan Stadium as well, and this thing will have much less dates than the 11 performances that made up the Manatsu no Dome Tour. This will do just fine I think.
Yeah, fans also probably didn’t attend more than one dome concert especially since they performed like 11 times so I’m sure having 2 dates will benefit the filling up aspect, and like you said, it’ll be a monumental occasion for the group and fans so it’ll surely do well in terms of having the seats filled up.
Yeah, Hokkaido is probably not the most accessible of places for all fans to attend. But that’s acceptable. Their tours were more or less at full capacity and I don’t think people should be worried about filling the seats up.
The four dates probably made it harder, but either way, they were pretty damn close to selling most of the venues out, so like you said, I wouldn’t be worried, especially since they filled up Nissan.
I don’t believe I said that but while you’re right in saying that AKB’s popularity isn’t going to last forever, the novelty of accomplishing certain things for the first time is going to run out after it is done after… the first time. So while trying to maintain AKB’s current standards of popularity is a noteworthy feat in itself, you’re never really going to be able to top the feelings of the first Tokyo Dome concert etc. But yeah, there’s technically still some things left to do, but at least in terms of venue (which is what I was referring to a while back), there are less and less of.
Yeah, I mentioned in that previous ask regarding this topic since it was only Yuukosu that really said anything about her departure from the group really. And we don’t know if the theater manager is really crazy and the graduations were sorta on him besides the fact that the fans voted him out at RH and whatnot. Not fired per se.
It was just Shimarena since she is an ijarare character like Nana, it’s just that it didn’t go as well as intended and the ‘ijiri’ part itself wasn’t very good. Not necessarily bullying since it’s supposed to be variety, but Shimarena sorta cried and some fans didn’t take kindly to that.
