how quickly we forget

i’m already forgetting that in their surging popularity, they’ve only been so for less than a year.  focusing on the ‘now’, it’s scary how easy it is to forget their humble and challenging beginnings as well as how much the members have grown in these few years.

i just came across this PV today for the song ‘anata ga ite kure dakara‘, a track on their latest album coming out this july 14th.  it contains tons of footage  dating way back to the beginning that no one has seen before; it’s pretty extraordinary.

read the article about maeda atsuko’s interview that talks about early tribulations.  akb is a group formed with blood, sweat, and tears.

glad to see that they’re seeing the fruits of their labor.
