The following broadcast contains material that is the opinion of the participants. The views expressed do not necessarily reflect those of the other Selective Hearing staff or affiliates of the site.

Episode 13 of the audio version of the Selective Hearing roundtable was recorded on Feb 9 2013 and was a 1 on 1 discussion with Selective Hearing’s local Minegishi Minami fan Hiro about her scandal and other issues in the idol world.

This also happened to be unlucky number 13 for us as our Justin.tv account was banned in the middle of recording. Not a huge deal but we thought it was funny. Please excuse some of the feedback in the audio, as I said, not a lucky episode.

Remember that if you don’t like what you hear, we have two words for you…

    +$50 towel? BALLIN’!!!

    +I think geesh making top 10 would be a more popular choice. Hearing Hiro disagree is quite interesting. I also agree, that they should of gave her a suspension punishment. However, I was expecting for her to end up on stage.
    +I am a H!P fan and a AKB fan. I am a bad western fan =[ lol
    +AKB Sports Festival? I dont remember this at all
    +Janken Tourney announcements are usually at HS events

    +I am kinda worried about the AKB kouhai. Well, worried and happy. Nogizaka46, who mainly exist as a rival and wake up call to the AKB kouhai, will be there to steal any spotlight away once the senpai members leave. I’m pretty sure, currently, Nogizaka members have more jobs than the AKB kouhai do. Im just wondering when do they start feeling the pressure.

    +Wow, giving H!P Kids the boot. Does UFP have the balls to kick out Suzuki Airi? I always hear she and Sayumin are the top 2 most popular in H!P. Airi being #1
    + I have this feeling after Reina and Sayumi leave, Momusu will reach about 13 girls. Then, they’ll go to focus to inject full-on youth in H!P by dropping H!P Kids and making more KSS groups. Maybe keeping a few worthy ppl around for awhile in limbo like what they are doing with Mitsui Aika.

      Sup Kairi, thanks much for listening to the podcast.

      – $50 towel was indeed ballin. I did need help holding it up for the camera when the Fuji TV dudes asked for us to display our wares.

      – I believe there was some sort of indication of a sports festival sometime during the first night of the request hour. But we were talking so much shit over the show I’m sure it could have been misinterpreted as such.

      – If the rumors prove to be true then yeah, H!P kids will be getting their pink slips within the next year or so. Berryz seem the most likely to pack it in first.

      If Airi does not get solo status should the house cleaning be true then there is something seriously wrong with the world and UFP. But we shall see.

      I guess if Hagiwara Mai gets sent packing I will be satisfied.

        I dont think Yoshi will be happy with your satisfaction of Mai leaving lol

          Hahaha.. That means I’ll just have to do a happy dance on YouTube to rub in her departure if she ever gets booted.
