     Wow. Just wow. This new development is a little sudden and unexpected for me. Of course, ever since the 4th gen kenkyuusei came in, it was expected by some that Team E would form soon, because the number of kenkyuusei was getting pretty big. Still, it seems quite early, at least from my point of view. It has only been barely two months since the 4th gen came in.

     Yeah, okay, we had Kanon and Erika in 1!2!3!4!Yoroshiku! very soon after they came in. Come to think of it, it might have been a sign that they were ready to include the 4th gens into SKE48 as proper members soon, and they were making use of them to introduce the new batch. Sort of like the sudden inclusion of Jurina in Oogoe Diamond to promote SKE48 back then. And the sudden revert back to 16nin senbatsu might have signalled that as well. They'll probably keep Erika and Kanon in senbatsu for SKE's next single, but who else? I don't think SKE senbatsus will go back to 7nin anymore from this point forth.

     The new girls getting promoted so soon is sort of Akicha-style. They must be that promising that they don't have to train that long. Except, of course, the dynamics for SKE are different, seeing how they have an entire team unformed. Still, it's disconcerting to find not one, but FOUR Team KII members getting demoted in favour of 4th gens. I like Momona >_>

     Are they that good? We'll have to wait to find out....
