NMB48’s Sayaka “Sayanee” Yamamoto (20) said that she was surprised by the announcement but she was able to grow thanks to Yuko, who was like a sister to her and wants to be a significant presence to fill in for the spot when Yuko leaves.
I feel when it comes to the high intensity choreography and good presence with other members, Sayanee and Jurina are it!
Sayanee really has the Yuko ethic when it comes to dedication and SKE48’s Jurina Matsui showed in UZA that she could be at Yuko’s level when Mayuyu wasn’t able to learn the high-level choreography in time.
But both are like a sponge when it comes to learning choreography quickly, very popular in their own groups and will definitely need to step up in 2014 when Yuko leaves. They pretty much been raised by mgmt. to be the next generation when the OG members are gone. So, I think 2014 those two and a few others will be given the opportunity to shine.
