I'm definitely expecting at least one of the winners to end up in her group, if not all of them (depending on numbers). I'm wondering if we'll end up with two new groups (Takase and Kiyono in one?), though that doesn't seem very likely at all.

I'm at least somewhat confident in betting on a new batch of Kenshuusei coming from this. :lol:

Looks like it's really a general, free for all "you may be added to any group or project" kind of audition.

I'm excited: Trainees are the lifeblood of H!P right now, but actual 'new' or 'unknown' girls being added is always fun.

Oh wow, I was not expecting a new audition. I'm actually pretty excited! I just hope they'll actually pick someone at the end of it instead of starting a 2nd audition.

Considering past auditions were really limited. Picking a girl for 1 group and maybe KSS, this is open to everything. So I'm sure they'll find a few girls and be able to pick and chose where they end up.

I think it's better this way. So in a sense you wont be stuck with a Sakura/Moe situation. This girl is great, but not for this group an hope they stick around for KSS or resubmit an audition application if they don't.

Any group except Country Girls (which makes sense). I only noticed today that they're not mentioned alongside the other groups as a possibility in the news announcement.

I do hope that Ichioka's new group members won't come entirely from this audition.
That would mean waiting half a year to get that group up and running.

Nice. I love the KSS, but I do prefer outside auditions sometimes.

Hope we get some promising girls out of this and it's more than just 1-2 new members.

I'm pretty glad they decided to still do open auditions. Was getting kinda sad it was going the way of the Trainees (not that I don't like the Trainees, it's a smart move, but I also like the tradition of idols off the street).

Hello! Project has a reputation as not the most popular but certainly the most elite idol company. If it wants to maintain that reputation, its auditions must be grueling. Very, very few girls can walk in off the street and be immediately ready to debut under the H!P banner. We're talking Uta-level, and H!P still got burned on that deal. Even Kamiko had to audition twice.

Even H!P's current leader failed her first audition.
