Q:Murashige didnt rank in Sousenkyo, they helped her adding those extra places. There's no use being optimistic, she is not going to make it again and she will graduate because she wasted her chances and had that stupid scandal. Period.
But she ranked, which may be an indication that her fanbase has grown the past year. But we’ll see… What you say has been said before, and sometimes that hasn’t happened. But needless to say, Shige has lost her momentum because of her mistake, and she has a hard road ahead of her if she doesn’t graduate
And I choose to be optimistic, as pessimism never leads to anything changing for the better.
Q:Shige not being in both NMB and HKT senbatsu after getting in Sousenkyo but having that "scandal" means just one thing. Management doesn't want to push her anymore. So maybe Murashige Anna is going to graduate next year, probably. She didn't even appear in Geining 3 and recent Odekake and Goboten HKT shows haven't had her. It's too late for Shige, she is done for.
I agree with the first part. Management is not going to do her any favours from now on… there had to be repercussions, hadn’t it?
I don’t think she’ll graduate just yet, though. There’s still work outside HKT, it depends on her agency (which is AKS, so I don’t hold my breath). But if she continues to work hard within the group, support her fellow members and hones her skills in variety etc, I see no reason that she couldn’t get on the good side again. It has happened before. But for that to happen, her fans have to stick by her. If she looses too much of her fanbase, I think she is done for, I’m afraid.
But I’ll at least stick by her, and I think many will. And of course I hope she can rise up again.
