Although I’m pretty sure the producers have mentioned that the election doesn’t guarantee a candidate will be selected, I can’t imagine Misa not getting the most votes. I didn’t officially predict she will join, and I still think her age could ultimately derail her, but I am going to jump on the Misa band
wagonairplane (just in case she does). Makoto seems to like her, so the m&m’s could upgrade to the m&m&m’s, and she has appeared at every recent predia and PASSPO concert. I’m not sure if management has specifically requested she attend, or she just happens to have the time (after she finishes her homework, nap, and snack-time), but it is definitely helping her. Hikaru and Mizuki also attended the same concerts, so it’s possible they are being sent in groups, and the other candidates will get their chance.
Should PASSPO fans start assuming she’ll join the group in a few months? Like mentally prepare our brains for the probability that a super–girly 13-year-old, who only eats strawberry parfaits and marshmallows, will be joining one of the most “hardcore” idol groups.
Yes. You should definately start mentally preparing your brain for that. The brain is very delicate and needs ample preparation time for anything idol-related.
Although PASSPO has always been somewhat lacking in “mainstream cuteness”, I think there could be serious complications if Misa joins. For example, her favorite color is pink. What if… *what if*… she joins… and then asks for the color pink?! And Makoto has to change her color to brown!
Your assignment this weekend is to think about that and then write a 5,000 word paper!
