Clips from episode 1 has been released. Since there are so many of them, I'll just post some of my favourites.

Btw, I watched the 2 hours episode last night and I really liked how different this Produce is compared to the korean ones. More relaxed atmosphere, the trainees and trainers are having fun together and joking with each others. Didn't see any evil-editing, but it's too early to tell if it's gonna be like that in the other episodes. Totally different vibe.

I watched an English sub of the 45 minute version and I still don't understand why some performed in groups/pairs and some solo? How were the groups decided? The two break dancing guys seem to be friends but what about the 'macho' trio?

mame-chan really is a shoujo manga love interest. he's so fresh, raw and pure. he has potential to be big. ren is ren. delivering a clean performance but outshining the other 2 boys, expected. ruck's group was good, but got such low ranks. hiroto and yugo's voices are surprising, they're actually good and stable. the muscle group has great voices, i saw a video of junki singing in karaoke and he's hella good. honestly if he doesn't make it then the kpop route may be for him, koreans love him. now my baby hico...they did him wrong. he was the cleanest dance i saw, and did it solo. his voice is high and needs help but that boy is confident and charming, i get their reasoning for putting him in F but it hurt so bad...he rose to B in the end i believe tho.

I don't know. I do know Shion were supposed to be pair with one, but he dropped out. You should watch the 2 hour version. You see all the members coming to choose their seats and we already seem them in their teams. Maybe some are established dancing team from each prefecture and some going solo?

In Produce Korea shows too, I believe there were teams of individual trainees and there were individual trainees performing by themselves. I think the trainees decided who they're going to perform with / whether they will perform solo

I've seen some international fans asking for english subs. I mean really want that to happend too. But face it, this is a japanese program and they are not like Kpop that do cater to international markets. But that Produce 101 Japan is releasing updates and content regulary, and made them accessable to everybody is something new and should be applaud. Even though I don't understand japanese except for some words, I'm happy what they are giving us inter-fans.
