More footage from the 1st screening of S/mileage’s new member audition has been released on the official S/mileage Youtube channel.
As most fans might remember we got to see footage from the 1st screening a few weeks ago so it’s great to see that they posted another video since we can find out how a few more auditioners look, and while the footage is relatively short it still gives us a good look at the process.
From the almost 2 minutes of auditioner footage on the video I couldn’t really see any that stood out but there were a few that did show off quite a lot of energy, like 1050 who we saw get a forehead check (most likely to see how they look without bangs) as well as 1430 who talked naturally to the camera or the girl with a dark blue sweater and long hair who said she loved S/mileage.
Apart from that we also get to see Tsunku’s new hair and how he judges the auditioners (with footage from a DVD player held up by a gnome on a widescreen TV), and it’s fairly interesting to say the least since he watches footage from them and he writes comments on the papers he has which feature their pictures, and while it might have been relatively short it was fun to see how he judges since he does a good job of checking each girl thoroughly to make sure they are good S/mileage members, so I’m confident that he will pick a perfect member.
Apart from the first two minutes the rest is just another Q&A with Tsunku so it’s safe to skip that part if you don’t understand it, but this video should show off how the 1st screening went, and while it’s a long shot it will be fun to see if any of the girls that appeared on this or the first video make it to the second round since only 50 girls were supposedly picked for the second round.
The second round will air in about 9 hours so hopefully everyone checks it out on Nico Nico Douga.
