That’s Rena stating that she won’t be participating in SSK this year! That’s right, Matsui Rena won’t be participating in SSK this year!!
The only person we were counting on to hold back Juri-baby is out of the picture! Now with SKE Oshii no longer plagued by the decision of whether to push Jurina or Rena and always being split between the two, no longer have this problem, at least for this SSK! Now there is no stopping Juri-baby!
Oh Yukirin, your luck, or lack there of astounds me sometimes! Just when I thought the hurdles were enough already and now this! Why Rena, why?! I believed in you! What are we going to do when we don’t get that regular YukiRena on the covers that we have come to know and love!

I think you’re overestimating the number of fans hesitating between J and R. I don’t think Rena not being here will have much of an effect on Jurina score.

I agree with Llew here, I think there are many people who vote for Rena because she is not Jurina…..

Sometimes differences have to set apart for a bigger goal and now that there is no reason for that differential, well, the bigger goal is for SKE to win SSK!

Even if they are few, Rena fans still have pride as SKE Oshiis meaning that if it isn’t Rena then they will make damn sure their other Ace takes it home for the first time. If HKT could do it, why not them! And really, Jurina is the best plausible choice to do that so yes, I am very worried!

No, many Rena votes will go nowhere, and some will go to younger SKE members.
Some will go to Jurina, sure, but she will probably also get less votes usually coming from her competition with Rena.
So in fine, Jurina will at best get a few thousands more votes from this : not much of an effect.
We will get back to this after SSK ^_-

That’s what they said about Yuko votes, until Sashiko took SSK.

i think rena’s votes would mostly go to younger members.
sure jurina is there to make her way to kami7 but there’s a bigger chance that the no 1 will be sou-chan since it’s her last senkyo.
and there’s shibata oshis voting for to be in senbatsu following suda.
it will be all right
