Good news for Miichan, but I feel bad for the old Team 4. What was the point of dissolving the team in the first place if they were just going to make a new one?

Yeah, I mean they are setting up about 4 of the old Team 4 girls to be the main line up of public members now but seems kinda silly to backtrack in name only. But grats to Miichan, great promotion and deserved. Im sure she will be a great capt.

Yes they needed to replenish their numbers and move forward with some top girls graduating recently. I did not think they would make another team though.  I figured they would just announce replacements (if they haven't already).

she shaved her hair . . . so I'd say . . . no . . . it was never their intention to never re-promote her, if that was really their intention then they would've simply made her graduate instead of making her a Kenkyuusei

I personally don't know what to feel about Team 4's revival (I wasn't really a big fan of the concept), but at the same time, I'm looking forward to seeing how this Team 4 will do.  

And I'm just happy Miichan got promoted. :)
