It’s going to be a “Drama”-tic Year

The month’s not even over, but there’s a whole lot of things to look forward to from the “48” family.  French Kiss’s 2nd single “If”, is already out, as well as No3B’s first album.

In addition to Watarirouka Hashiritai and AKB48’s new singles coming out in a few weeks, there’s dramas to look forward to as well.

SKE48’s 12-episode mini-drama about a murder case taking place in a cosplay singing contest, “Mousou Deka”, started on January 12th, and AKB48’s 17-episode mini-drama about a class of students and their teacher inflicted with terminal disease, “Sakura Kara no Tegami”, will start on February 26th.

But that’s not all.  On the last day of the Request Setlist Best 2011 Concert, they announced this:

A full, new season of Majisuka Gakuen; how can one not be excited?  More fights, more cheesy plots, more Team Hormone, more Gakuran, and more Gekikara.

If all this wasn’t enough, a new subgroup with Yokoyama Yui, Oshima Yuko, Sashihara Rino, and Kithara Rie called “Not Yet” will be releasing their first single in March, there’s a Yokohama Arena concert and an album release in April, and Maeda Atsuko’s “Moshidora” film in July to look forward to.

This will be a good year.

  1. And more Nachu…. F*CK!

    They probably made Gekikara to a lawyer too… OH WELL AT LEAST YUKO IS ALIVE? OH I FORGOT SHE DROPPED DEAD!

    (Might as well put Oshima Mai in there with her Crown looking for marked chairs, so once in a while you’ll see Mai run around)

  2. I need to start watching Mousou Deka. Can’t wait for more Majisuka Gakuen though.

  3. I didn’t expect anything from Mousou Deka but I’m actually really impressed. The 15 minute episodes are utilized well, and it’s a lot funnier than I expected; Jurina’s character is hilarious.

    Also, for anyone who wants subs for at least Mousou Deka, you can get them at

  4. Don’t forget Not Yet!

  5. Ah, forgot about that. There’s been so many announcements lately…updated post. Thanks!
