AKB48 Gets a Sizable Upgrade

There’s some crazy happenings going on around here during Christmas fever.  Not to be outshined by SKE’s recent upsizing, AKB management’s heart must have grown three sizes that day because it was announced that all 9th generation research students are promoted!

Oba Mina, Shimazaki Haruka, Shimada Haruka, Takeuchi Miyu, Nagao Mariya, Nakamura Mariko, Mori Anna, and Yamauchi Suzuran have all been given to greenlight to become full AKB48 members.  Shimazaki, Shimada, and Takeuchi have been my favorite research students for a really long time now and it’ll be awesome to see what teams they get into (PLEASE PUT TAKEUCHI MIYU IN TEAM A PLEASE PLEASE).
