A couple of pics of members of SHY48's 1st team selling their debut EP today at BEJ48's exclusive theater, where 16 members of the team are currently having tour performances of the team's current stage:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly ... 2kwb29.jpg

^ They look like lil kids, especially the right one. XD

BTW, they're donning the team's current formal winter uniform.

A nice song jointly performed by members from the 1st, 3rd, 4th, & 5th teams of SNH48 at the end of their joint-team National Day special theater performance today (their 2nd team didn't participate in it because they're busy preparing for their new stage debuting this week)

That stage debuted last night - here's one of the numbers performed in it:



^ Sounds like a theme for video games. lol BTW, I like their costumes. :)

Behind-the-scenes footage, released today, of the MV for one of the SNHG's upcoming singles, shot in Italy earlier & to be released soon:



[EDIT]
^ An offshot from that MV, featuring the captain of SNH48's 1st team, who plays one of the four Inners guardian senshi of a princess, played by their group ace, in it:

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/b5d6209fgy1 ... 2c0qva.jpg

^ Her military uniform has a red theme color, & those other three senshi have the blue, green, & gold ones, respectively. :P

^ The soundtrack of that single, released today:



[EDIT]
^ They've also opened a dedicated HP today for their upcoming EP, of which the single is the title number:

http://www.snh48.com/event/s209/

^ Its content includes the tracklist, six different versions, attached items, & peripheral items (sold separately) of that EP, among others. Also note that those 16 group members (15 from SNH48 & one from BEJ48) shown in its header, i.e. the singers of the EP's title number, include both their protagonist & antagonist characters in that number's MV. :)

^ The MV for the 2nd number of the EP, shot in the UAE earlier & released today:



^ The plot is pretty simple: the 16 group members (from various SNHG groups) are divided into four teams of four members each to compete in a game for the prize, the lamp.

Looks more like a tourism promotion video of the UAE govt. for their Chinese market. :P

[EDIT]

CKG48 has announced today that the construction of their exclusive theater has already been completed - here's a pic of its supposedly fully functional stage they posted today:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006P1U2ngy ... 4tw4qp.jpg

The current newest SNHG group will debut by this year, & their newly recruited 1st-generation members are currently under training, while the recruitment of their 2nd-generation ones has already started. :)

[EDIT]
A documentary episode focusing on a core, veteran, & founding/1st-generation member in SNH48's 1st team at the various events during their General Election period earlier, released today:



She's the deputy captain of the team at present, & her current rank of #8 is already the highest among the members of the team (her last rank of #6 was also the highest among them), which's a bit sad for the team, especially for their 1st-generation members in the team. *sigh*

A birthday poster for a member of GNZ48's 2nd team, posted by their official blogger on her birthday today:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 2pgu0y.jpg

^ She's donning the team's current full dress uniform, the design of which outer coat has incorporated a number of features from military uniforms, in combination w/ the trademark/traditional patterns of 48 Group costumes, & the coat can also be taken off, wholly revealing the more feminine & sexier dress underneath. Its collar also somewhat resembles that of a sailor-styled school uniform. Its overall design is pretty unique & eye-catching among all the SNHG groups at present. :cool:

A short documentary episode on her, w/ many various recent footage of her, released today:



Both her surname & given name are unusual, w/ the former being a made-up one combining her parents', & the latter having an intellectual feel as well as being atypical for females. The English-speaking girl always feels like a precious, princess-like daughter of a prestigious clan to me. lol

The movie has many trailers lol - here's a pretty romantic one, which's probably the last before the movie's opening just several days later:


An MV for one of their stage numbers (which's used as a theme song of the movie), featuring various footage from the movie w/ a focus on the male & female lead characters:

http://p.weibo.com/show/channerWbH5/103 ... 9298b7e3c8

^ Even in the MV's movie footage you can tell there's something strange/awkward in that female character, as she isn't even a human in it. lol

Behind-the-scenes footage of the upcoming MV for the 3rd number of SNHG's upcoming EP, which was shot in a mountainous, scenic, & ethnically/culturally diverse southwestern inland border province, released today:



I've also listened to the soundtrack of that song (hasn't been linked here) & it's nice - really looking forward to this MV. :dance:

http://m.le.com/vplay_30979215.html

Her face may look carefree/relaxed, but she actually has intense pressure in helming her team of generally younger members, which's one of their most troublesome teams besides their 3rd one.

A Japanese fan has compiled this less-than-11-min. footage from the approx.-two-hour latter, announcement part of the SNHG General Election final results announcement event earlier & uploaded it an hour ago today:



^ The way it's compiled is (notably lol ) influenced by that fan's personal preferences on the group members, of course, XD but it can still give you the overall feel & some good glimpses of the occasion. :)

The group ace of SNH48 has become a topic on a Korean variety show lately: lol



BTW, a German news media has also released a video report about them earlier this month, in which the German-speaking captain of their 1st team, who majored in German studies & is the de facto leader of the entire group, represents the group in an interview by that media. The approx.-half-hour report, which I'm not gonna link here, is in German, of course. :)

Some key members from different teams of SNH48 have attended various fashion events lately - a collection of pics featuring them at those events, posted on a Japanese fansite today (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes - some are pretty huge):

https://snh48.info/2017/10/15927/

They'll also have their own (large-scale) fashion event next month, in collaboration w/ the Chinese edition of a mainstream Japanese fashion mag - which's now been wholly acquired by them, actually lol - & featuring members from all the SNHG groups, including even CKG48, their latest one which'll debut only this week. :oh:

[EDIT]
[Re: The latter part of the preceding post] On its grand opening day today, representatives from all the current other four SNHG groups (two from each group, including the captains & deputy captains of the teams, group/team aces, & other prominent members) performed a song w/ their two teams:



Note that the members of those two teams include the team ace of SNH48's 3rd team who now doubles as a member of their 2nd team, her now-former teammate in that SNH48 team who's now been transferred to that same 2nd team (hence the two do continue to be teammates, but in a different team & group lol ), & a GNZ48's 2nd-team member who now doubles as their 1st-team member. :)

Have read on the papers today that AKB48 is gonna form another sister group in Shanghai, the home city of their former sister group SNH48, & will select the new group's members by the end of this year. So in effect they've now openly admitted their previous (utter) business failure over there, i.e. SNH48 (from their POV, of course lol ), w/o actually saying so. :P Personally, I'd welcome that, provided that they could make it a success this time, since competition, if it's substantial, can prevent complacency & improve product quality - in fact, SNH48, being the paramount idol group in the country at present, has already shown some signs of complacency in their running & operations.

Three prominent members of BEJ48's 1st team selling idol goods at the exclusive theater of SNH48 this afternoon - the team is currently having tour performances over there:

^ The team's captain & their group ace - she's currently the only one holding both titles among all the current 15 SNHG teams & five SNHG groups. :cool:

I like those uber cool stage costumes they wore during the event, especially those shoulder pads. :cool:

[EDIT]
The group ace of SNH48 is doing a historical production again - various pics of her in a drama in which she stars, posted on a Japanese fansite today (click to view them in their original large sizes):

She's playing the title character in it. :)

I've also listened to the soundtrack of that song (hasn't been linked here) & it's nice - really looking forward to this MV. :dance:

The MV, released today:



^ The center girl of the song is a fan-turned-idol member in SNH48's 3rd team, who's multi-talented & can speak fluent Japanese & play musical instruments. :)

And its dance version, released today:



[EDIT]
^ Note that they'd overcome altitude sickness during the shootings. :cool:

^ Looks as if they were doing a recruitment promotion video for the PLA. :lol:

The 3rd team of SNH48 performing a famous number of the team's current stage at their joint-team Halloween special theater performance today:



The team is known for their excellence in dancing skills. :cool: BTW, the deputy captain of their 2nd team has also covered that number in solo & even shot an MV for it.

Behind-the-scenes footage, released today, of the MV for one of the SNHG's upcoming singles, shot in Italy earlier & to be released soon:


An abridged version of the MV, released today:



^ So who's actually the protagonist & who's the antagonist? lol It kinda reminds me of PSM in PGSM. XD

Its full, 15-min. version will be released later. :)

[EDIT]
^ OK, while its plot looks complex & involves many characters, its basic setting is pretty simple:

- The royal dynasty is set in a fictional historical period/universe.
- The king is assassinated, & the nobles wanna seize power & get his throne.
- The princess, who looks weak & easily swayed by others, tries to get back the power & rejuvenate the dynasty.

Some character settings of the two lead characters:

- While the princess looks like a weakling, she actually has a double-faced personality, & pretends to be oblivious to all the conspiracies around her.
- The duchess is ambitious, daring, & intelligent, & knows how to win hearts & minds.

The story somehow reminds me of the current president of the country. :lol:

A couple of pics of members of SHY48's 1st team selling their debut EP today at BEJ48's exclusive theater, where 16 members of the team are currently having tour performances of the team's current stage:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly ... 2kwb29.jpg

^ They look like lil kids, especially the right one. XD

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 1j0npd.jpg

^ W/ just a lil bit special makeups & a wig, she can perfectly look like a Vulcan. :ohmy: :cool:

BTW, they're donning the team's current formal winter uniform.

That "Vulcan" (or "Romulan") has posted a cool pic of herself today:

[Re: The 2nd last post above] While there're as many as 16 main characters in it, they can be divided into three groups:

- The princess & her four Inners guardian senshi.
- The duchess & the other nobles encouraging/supporting her in the coup.
- The "dark" princess (actually the alternate persona of the princess) & her secretive assassins, all of whom dressed in black (they remind me of PSM & her minions who overpowered the Inners in the Final Act of PGSM lol ).

While the major developments of the story are already quite clear in the abridged version, there're some crucial details not as obvious, which I hope can be clarified more in the full version. :)
