An MV of a 2nd-generation member in the 3rd team of SNH48 (formerly in their 2nd team), currently ranked #1, who's just graduated & become a solo artist under the same company, shot in Japan & released today:

Sina Visitor System

^ The plot is a lil bit creepy, but still nice & cute. :)
The final song of her graduation performance at their exclusive theater this afternoon, w/ her finishing the graduation ritual near the end:


The song is a classic graduation number of AKB48. :)

[EDIT]
A popular traditional-Chinese-styled C-pop number performed at a joint team Mid-Autumn Festival special theater performance of BEJ48 tonight:

Some key members of SNH48's "golden 5th generation" performing a meaningful, self-referring-like number, which title means "to the future's us," at the special theater performance for the celebration of their exclusive theater's 6th anniversary tonight:


Members of the 5th generation not only formed the group's short-lived but legendary old 5th team - the largest team ever - in the past (they've now been all transferred to various other teams & sister groups), but, together w/ the 6th-generation members, are also historically significant in being pivotal in the development of SNHG - many of them have become prominent & leading members in the SNHG groups nowadays, & will also be the backbone of SNH48 once the 1st- & 2nd-generation members all graduate w/i the coming two years.

^ Another song, which's one of the numbers in their debut EP, performed in that concert:

Sina Visitor System

^ I like its retro elements.

BTW, the venue is the same one where SNH48 did their debut theater performance back then (they only got their own exclusive theater about a year later). :)

[EDIT]
Many photos of the concert can be found on this page of a Japanese fansite (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

A nicely shot photo collection featuring the deputy captain of SNH48's 4th team, reposted on this page of a Japanese fansite (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

ハート泥棒:上海SNH48四期生スイスイ(楊冰怡) – SNH48分室 Unofficial

The young native of a southern tropical island has a personality way more mature than her look & actual age, & had already been appointed as her team's deputy captain even before her reaching adulthood, which's unprecedented. The 4th-generation member is also a leading, #2 member of their subgroup De Moon. :)

Finally, after seven years since their founding & their breakup w/ - hence their complete independence from - AKB48/AKBG around the middle of the same period, SNH48/SNHG will hold their very 1st theater performance tour in Japan next month, just when AKB48/AKBG's continuous decline is becoming more & more obvious, especially after some serious, eye-popping scandals in the recent years & the unprecedented cancellation of the AKBG General Election this year - a short Japanese promotion video for the tour:


^ Note that 7SENSES, their elite subgroup, will also perform in the tour, which'll also feature members from their sister groups BEJ48 & GNZ48.

While they've done various promotions of their General Election in Japan in the past & one of their former group aces has even visited the country for a special coverage by a local mag, so far they've never performed there, so this can be seen as a significant milestone in their history. :)

[EDIT]
Ah, a phototaking, signing, & peripheral-items (including ones specially produced for the tour) selling event will also be held there.
Just a belated update that the tour & all the related activities have been canceled due to the severe typhoon over there. They vow to hold another overseas tour eventually, tho.

[EDIT]
The full MV of SNHG's current latest single, totally shot in Japan & released yesterday:

A number from the debut theater performance of a new stage by BEJ48's 2nd team yesterday:
