So according to the wikia, Shimakura Rika, Kanemitsu Ruru, and Matsubara Yuriya's photosets sold out at the first show. I'm not surprised by Yuriya at all, and Ruru has the benefit of being young, cute and super new. But I'm pretty surprised about Rika. Is she a popular KSS? I think her singing is pretty decent, but IMO her aesthetic isn't appealing.

In the list Nanami Kubota is written as “Kobuta” which means “little pig”. I find this amusing so I’m going to leave it as is (also because it’s a hassle to edit html on mobile).

Yamazaki had more people wearing her shirts than any single Tsubaki member but didn't sell out first. I think it's very likely they don't hold equal amounts of goods for each girl and it's probably done by a guessed demand.

So... Yuhane is the new hottest KSS? I mean otherwise she wouldn't be in a Pizza La commercial with Funaki and Moe (who both seem to be pretty popular), but her being more popular than any Tsubaki member is interesting.

Kenshuusei Hashimoto Momoko and Kenshuusei Hokkaido Kitagawa Ryo have finished their KSS training and have been removed from the website.

 

Some good news, everyone has pictures now. 

I'll need to update that sometime this week.

It’s too bad neither of those long distance girls worked out. They should have just debuted them to start with.

Also Ryo was the only HKSS I cared about so :(

Sucks about Momoko, but I don't really care about Ryo leaving. Sato and Kudo are clearly managements Hokkaido faves anyway, and the entire group of girls is kind of lackluster to begin with.

...is Kurumi wearing a dress with beer cans? lol. 

"Translated" (more like transcribed) results:

Spoiler

 

I just realized that I know nearly no one aside from Hokkaido KSS, last audition additions and Horie/Inoue/Maeda/Yamazaki. 

 

On the topic of who graduated recently:

I always had the feeling that Ryo would quit. She's pretty but she didn't seem to be into idol stuff at all. Might also be that her foot injury was worse than expected.

Momoko, yeah, long distance is annoying. I'm still surprised that Manaka stayed for so long, she's probably one of the few girls that managed long distance travelling for her whole KSS time. 

On another note though, it pretty much sucks to see the audition "failures" jumping ship one after the other. The whole distance thing is where I see the biggest failure of the KSS. Debuting full time is enough to move to Tokyo, but you can't expect those who live on the other end of the country to stick with your company if you let them rot in the KSS. Not that I was overly convinced by the finalists (they pretty much were all lacking something), but just to see a big audition, the first in some time to get some wider recognition, to end this way annoys me.

This will be interesting to see how it turns out, a lot of vocally demanding songs in this lineup I see~

As long as precious little bab Rin (No. 11 this year) keeps picking these nostalgic H!P Kids songs, I will be satisfied. I loved her performance last year <3

 

Nakayama Natsume (No.27 last year, No. 17 this year) that was two after her had that really great classic H!P Kids vibe about her, too. Honestly, last year's contestants felt like either big hits or big flops for me, personally.

I want to believe Shimakura will go to that upcoming performance based group of Ichioka's... her singing and dancing are both above average and she's older (turning 18 this year).  She really impressed me, she has a fire in her eyes!  She did a solid cover of Be Alive last year as well.  Actually, her singing is so solid I'd almost want her in Takase's group... but I have a feeling that group will be flop with the "theater troupe" concept LOL.

 

Overall they have a damn strong batch of KSS right now.  It's a shame to think many of them won't debut :(

Inoue Hikaru has completed her training and left the KSS. She was the leader of the group.

She didn't participate in the test either because she was sick.

My reasoning is that the deadline for the first round is June 6, and kenshuusei start at round 2. So it’s not as if she’s failed this audition and then decided to leave. She must have known she wasn’t being chosen.

I think she’s also about to finish high school either this year or next.
