One of my favorite AKB48 members is Team K’s Kobayashi Kana. When I went to see them live back in 2007, she was one of the ones present at the live show. At that time I only knew one member by name. She immediately stood out and became one of my favorites. Also at the time, she had blonde hair.
It’s a shame because she was never one of the premier members. She didn’t get as much face time as the more popular ones.
