Not unexpected at all, I think. I was half expecting them to announce something like this at the Countdown Concert.

I wonder if this will be a solo generation (or the duo I have been hoping for since Sakura).

I wonder how Tsunku is involved in the process now
I hope he at least is part of the final decision making

I wonder if they'll follow the pattern from the past 3 H!P auditions/additions (CG, Moe, 12 gen) where they just introduce them sometime in the Fall~near Winter and then have them officially start activities in 2017/countdown concert.
But, considering how early in the year this audition was announced, it might become a mid/late summer reveal with a mid Fall start of activities sort of situation, which is fine too.
2 nin would be nice.

Maa-chan probably wants another 4 member generation to get back at Sayashi for leaving. Red color is available. after that, they are running out of gradation colors.

if Taisei and Shimizu Saki chose Kamikokuryou Moe, then I trust them to choose a new Morning Musume member.

I honestly think now that Akane and Maria were added because one adored Sayumi and the other resembled her.

I don't want new girls. We have more than enough members, just promote them properly!
All I'm excited for is the finalists, since the golden audition finalists managed to nearly all debut(Uta, Moe etc.).

1-2 is fine, I think 4 would be overkill. I like big Momusu but I don't want them to get TOO big.

I don't want a bunch of new girls. One girl *coughKagacough* is enough.

I wiiiiiish. Maybe I'm paranoid but it seems like the solo member gen happens every fourth generation 3rd (Maki)-> 7th -> (Koharu) -> 11th (Sakura) -> 15th?!? :o ?!?

Do they really need another audition so soon!!!

MoMusu is best/optimal at ten members, plus/minus two. 13 was already feeling a bit crowded. So if they really feel that they need more members, I hope it's just one. One and Only one.

12ki didn't need four members, despite the fact I like all those new members.

So, is Tsunku involved in the auditions at all? I assume not.

Huh. I must admit I don't follow group dynamics as much as I used to, but really, do they need more members? When Sayu left, they added four. Now that Sayash's left, can we keep it to a smaller number? I agree with you guys, 1-2 at most, please.

Been whining about this basically ever since we got proper footage of 12th gen.

It's not surprising.
But most importantly

Thank god they're doing this. Now bring in a future ace plz.

Yeah, I think this time around they need the proverbial "Miss Acey Ace in Your Face".

I'd prefer they don't do the "WE NEED TO FIND ANOTHER ACE STAT" thing. The last time that happened we got Koharu... jury's still out if it was successful (And I loved Koha in MM)
