From Team A Renai Kinshi Jourei stage today, after encore MC
Takamina: Kawaei has made her comeback to this theater stage today after 4 & 1/2 months. Please tell everyone about what you’re feeling standing on this stage today after all these time. Also a word to the fans.

Kawaei: The past 4 & 1/2 months have felt very long. I’ve kept everyone waiting for me for but, today, I’ve come back here and there are so many people, it’s somehow amazing, somehow very amazing…”

All: (laughs)

Takamina: Are you okay?

Yes the title seem crazy but please here me out on this. So if you ever watched any of the Harry Potter movies you know that students get placed into separate houses. Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Voldemort was in Slytherin and so would Takamina.
I know what you may be asking, how could Takamina be in Slytherin when she's obviously a Gryffindor? Well here are some of the characteristics of a Slytherin; values ambition, cunning, leadership, and resourcefulness.
Values ambition, Takamina was one of the most ambitious AKB48 member to date. Her dream was to perform in Tokyo Dome...

Surpassing our 1st-3rd gen senpai is difficult. But, I feel like I was able to tear down some “walls” this year.

It’s your first time in the “Kami 7”, congratulations.

Thank you very much! I ranked even higher than I imagined so I was shocked.

How were you feeling in the days leading up to the general election?
Last year, I was worried if I’d be able to make it into senbatsu, but this year, I didn’t care about my ranking as much and was feeling more comfortable. Although I was thinking “I hope I can rank higher than last year”, I didn’t feel too pressured and I was able to stay...

An interview with the ex-AKB/SDN 1st gen member Sato Yukari, an interesting read.

Popular idol group AKB48 is about to hit their 9th year since their theater debut. One of the 20 members who stepped on stage first was first generation member Yukari Sato (25). She was ranked #15 in the group’s first general election and immediately got moved to their ‘older sister’ unit SDN48.

Sato shares some behind-the-scenes information about her time in AKB48 and SDN48. Check out the interview below!

Interviewer: I heard that your life was pretty hard back when AKB first formed in 2005.

Sato: Yes, that’s...

Only one NMB representative? I don't think so.
Only one NMB representative? I don't think so.
After reading the list of members for the next single 'No Way Man' I noticed that something was missing... NMB members. Yes Miru is in the lineup but it only her representing NMB. While other sister groups have more than one representative except for STU.

Disclaimer: This was not done to hurt members included in 'No Way Man' but it was done to shit on AKS.

9. Kato Yuuka

Uuka is a regular NMB Senbatsu member. She was a contestant in Produce 48 but unfortunately due to the show being rigged and biased to who could make it into the finals, she's didn't last long. Fortunately she has the fans to...

I want you!
I need you!
I love you!
The blaring music
Playing in my head
Is on heavy rotation
The words “I love you” dance
Like popcorn
Just thinking
Of your face and voice
Makes me go crazy
I’m so lucky
To get to feel like this
I want you!
I need you!
I love you!
I got to meet you
As the distance between us shrinks
I’m in high spirits to the max
I want you!
I need you!
I love you!
The love that’s constantly
In my heart
Is on heavy rotation
How many times
Does each person fall in love
In their life?
If I can have
Just one unforgettable love
I’ll be satisfied
Does everyone burst into bloom...

'And Cut!' the staff applaud to the young actress standing on stage. She bowed to the director and crew and thanked them for their hard work. In return she was given a bouquet of flowers. She smiled and thanked them once again as she slowly walked off the stage and out of the building.
She walked towards the van her manager was in, 'You did a grate job today' he said as she slowly made her way inside. The driver looked back at her as she shut the door and sat next to her joyful manager and then looks forward to start the vehicle. 'They will no doubt love the commercials once they are edited...

Now to start this of in no way am I attacking anyone. I just want people to get the fact correct.

Now to start I just want to say that I will be looking at some of the main reasons why people won't watch Produce48.

"They make the 48 girls look bad"

This is honestly one of the main reasons I didn't want to watch the show after articles of the judges 'tearing apart' the members. It was only when the subbed version came out that you noticed that they didn't hurt them as much as they could have.

>In season 1 they basically called a group of mainly rappers out because they wern't cute
