I just ran into this video on youtube while watching AKBingo, but have you guys heard GILLE's English cover of AKB48's "Flying Get"? It's on her cover album which includes songs from other Japanese bands as well as Bruno Mars and Adele.

Its a very interesting cover.

Yuko is still in team K so what are you talking about?

Most sad for me is that Aki will be part of JKT, so what's with French Kiss? Same in DiVa and Sae.
Team B looks really interesting - Miichan (my 1st oshi), Milky (my NMB oshi), Yukirin (from FK), Paruru (fav from team4), Miori, Wasamin, Harunyan, lol a lot of girls which i like.
Anyway this

I really hope Akimoto knows what he is doing, 4 teams made into 3 and he was going on
about girls 'not pulling their weight'.
So poor Aki Takajo and Haruna Nakagawa are being 'deported' to JKT48 while Sae Miyazawa
and Mariya Suzuki are being sent to SNH48, a team that does not even exist yet !

So the farewell concert will be for 5 girls, not just Acchan !
At least my new oshi Miichan is still there.

Yeah, this shuffle feels really weird, Akimoto must be taking the opportunity to change stuff now that Acchan leaves.

I mean for me it seems weird that Takajo for instance would want to go to Indonesia? Some people at other forums claim she has gone out and said she wants to, but why would you leave your fans and a somewhat secure situation in AKB to go to Jakarta?

Not saying Indonesia is a bad place to be in, but it's far from her fanbase and reputation that she has build up in Japan.

I really hope these people know what they are doing.

Hmm...I how things will work out. Will the overseas transfers have to commute by plane to Japan and back?
Apparently it said on G+ that they decided to transfer on their own. Maybe they wanted to try something new or start over on a clean slate. Anyway, I will still be supporting them. Also, I bet communication will be tough.
Also, all these other girls who are concurrent with SKE and NMB will be interesting.

This year for AKB is pretty crazy - Acchan's graduating, Sasshi was put in HKT, and now people are being transferred overseas.

Mmmmm, I have heard darker stories from my friends in Japan !
Aki Takajo did not 'want' to go to a foreign country where they do not even speak Japanese.
Takamina tried to save her but they said they would send Haruna with her then !

Yukirin has also been demoted from Team Captain.
They will not be commuting, they have been banished there !

@tonymiller: Yeah, because how could they really commute when they have to be there for practicing, bonding/getting to know each other, performances and everything else?

Those sound like dark stories indeed. But I just don't see how you would volunteer for such a deal.



EDIT: By the way, the full PV for Gingam Check is out I just noticed. While the song wasn't their best work for me, that music video might be their best one yet. Happy

@tony - wow, that is really dark. Thanks for the info.
What I had in mind was kinda similar to studying abroad or something like being a foreign exchange student, and you would just stay in the foreign country for a while, and then be able to go back home for short periods of time every few months....but I guess its not like that...


EDIT:
Full MV of Gingham Check (watch it before it gets taken down!):




Sounds like AKB48 threw in some Dubstep into "Nante Bohemian"


Argh, Acchan's graduation is gonna be on in 1 hr and 50 minutes, but I need some sleep. I hope there will be a recording put up somewhere so I can watch it later.

It was just live-streamed on their official youtube channel. It ended a few minutes ago.

It was really sad to see the senbatsu members say goodbye to Maeda, I almost teared up and I'm not even close to being her biggest fan. I'll really miss her already, more than I thought I would but I'm a big fan of dramas and if she is pursuing acting, I guess we'll be seeing more of her in the future.

Still, it won't be the same as her performing on stage with the other members. What a sad way to start this day. :'(

Where can I find this information?


It's true that Aki didn't want to go to Indonesia as she said. Information about that she like this idea is from management. AkiP discussed about it with her. It's the same like then when Yukosu and HKT girls graduation (a few days ago), it's nothing personal, she just must do this because scandal.

The latest story I heard from Tokyo is that Acchan only graduated from AKB so she can join
Nogizaka46, AKB' s official rivals who were also founded and managed by Yasushi Akimoto.
He wants her to make them as popular as AKB !

I really hope this is not true, I wanted her to be free and have a solo career and boyfriends,
not spend the next 7 years making Nogizaka46 popular !

I haven't watched the graduation yet, but I already miss Acchan. I'm gonna miss Akicha and Sae too.

On a happier note, I'm super happy for my Oshi Takamina to make her solo debut on Universal Records Japan!

Also, I'm really liking the B sides to "Gingham Check" - "Nante Bohemian" and "Do Re Mi Fa Onchi"

I'm kinda new in this thread so I hope you guys can tell me more about this japanese girl group.

I was really into K-Pop than J-Pop so i don't know them that much.

I listened to "Heavy Rotation" yesterday, it's very catchy and makes you feel good when you listen to it. I think I'm starting to like this group.

@Rafa

SUGOI! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] do you know where can i find some more great pictures of her so I can save it?

TE-HEE!

For a few weeks, I've been trying to figure out what was different about Mayuyu, and I just figured it out! Her hair is different. Man, I feel dumb lol.

@Goldenarms - It really helps to get to know the girls by watching variety shows and dramas that AKB48 members are in. Check out AKBingo, Bimyo~, and Majisuka Gakuen. There are many other things that these girls are involved in, but I think those three are a pretty good start. I think the more you get to know about each member, the more interesting AKB becomes, and the more you start liking them....well, that was my case anyway.

I see you like Harunyan. If you haven't already check it out, try listening to no3b, or watch Ariyoshi AKB.

@yoshinator 54 -

I have watched a few episodes of "Majisuka Gakuen" before but I haven't finish the whole series. I tried watching AKBingo yesterday and I enjoyed it. I'm currently watching Kojiharu's new series "Megu-tan tte Mahou Tsukaeruno" but it's still raw but it's okay, I just wanted to see her even if it's just on the tv screen. ehehehehe

Yes, I already checked out their sub unit no3b and DL'ed some of their singles and album. I really like their song "Relax", it just brightens up my day everytime i hear it.

Thanks for the help. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

YOSH!!! Gonna start watching some of their shows so I can get to know them better.

I have been a huge AKB fan since 2005 when there was only Team A.
It can be daunting at first to remember all those girls but like Yoshi says just get to know a few at a time.
There were only 16 at first so it was easier then !

@Yoshinator54
I have always thought that Takamina is one of the strongest singers.
"Gingham Check" arrived yesterday...yay Happy

Yup, it's kinda hard remembering all their names, it's a bit confusing cause there's a bunch of them.
But for now, the girls from their sub unit no3b are my favorites. Minami Minegishi, Minami Takahashi
and of course my one and only "Harunyan" Haruna Kojima. Oh my!, I love this three girls already.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I have a question, who is the main vocalist in the group?
I mean in Team A, K, B and 4 or in all of the teams combined.

I think Minami Takahashi has a powerful voice.

There is not really a main vocalist, Yasushi Akimoto ( their Boss ) even admitted some of the girls
cannot sing or dance very well, but with 62 girls you do not notice !
Many of the girls have done songs on their own like Mayuyu ( Mayu Watanabe ) and Yukirin
( Yuki Kashiwagi ), you will soon find your own favourites, my oshi was Acchan until she left and
now it is Miichan ( Minami Minegishi )

@Goldenarms: If you want to watch another drama starring Kojima, you could watch Mendol. It's also been subbed if you don't know japanese. Minegishi and Takamina are also in that one. Personally didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I did Majisuka, but Kojima isn't in that show too much.

My newly found favorite is Kizaki Yuria. She is in SKE though.

My top 3 are Miichan, Akicha (now in JKT) and Sasshi (now in HKT). I also like Takamina, Yuko, Paruru, Mocchi, Yukirin, Mayuyu, Amina, from SKE Matsui 'sisters', from NMB Milky, Sayanee and Rina and from HKT all girls : ) Especially Natsu, Haruppi, Sakura, Anna and Chiyori ^^ HKT is my favorite band from 48 family.

who is the main vocalist in the group?
It depends on the results of senbatsu souseknyo (if we talking about singles of course).

>my top three in SKE (my favorite AKB sister group) are Rena Matsui, Kuumin (Kumi Yagami), and Jurina Matsui...though I'm starting to like Shawako (Sawako Hata) because of her mysteriousness.
>I don't really have favorites in the other sister groups yet, except for Milky (NMB) and Sasshi (HKT)...
>My favorite sub-unit would have to be Not yet (Yuko, Yuihan, Kitarie, and Sasshi), but I also like all of the other sub units.
>my top 5 favorite AKB songs are probably Everyday Kachuusha, RIVER, 10nen Zakura, Heavy Rotation, and Manatsu no Sounds Good...but I've pretty much liked every song that I've heard.
>Acchan, Mayuyu, and Tomochin are my top 3 favorite soloists so far.

Anyway, that's shows a little about what I like.

Also, I haven't been able to get my brother to like SCANDAL, but, I got him to watch some AKBingo. Maybe someday, he'll start listening to AKB48 or other Japanese music. Because the only Japanese music he listens to is a few j-rock bands that I've introduced him to, like Ellegarden, Beat Crusaders, and Asian Kung-fu Generation. And he refuses to listen to "girl bands or groups"
