It is time for y’all to clap your hands for the new promotional video from …


  1. why does everyone think that 5min “Eien Pressure” PV is the full PV?????

  2. I think it was brilliant to put the breaking news before the OP. *thumbs up*

  3. So am I suppose to drop the entire group now since my oshimen resigned? I am not even surprise that Yuka called it quits because honestly I thought she should have left last year but DIVA performed pretty well. I am not mad at her for leaving the way she is even though I wish it could have been on different terms.

    • We’d hate to see you go… so no!

      I’ve had the same thoughts when Acchan decided to graduate, but since I did conclude that there’s still much to the group of AKB48 that I do still enjoy I continued to follow them. At the end of the day it’s your choice. Weigh the costs and benefits of it I guess, haha.

  4. 2012 is becoming “The Year the Music Got a Serious Head Wound” for Wota. Lots of big shifts.

    I am going to miss Sato. She didn’t get a big push after the very first years of AKB, but she is a serious talent and a very interesting girl. Pretty, funny, smart, and musical – the total package.

    (Best of Luck, Sato!!)

  5. Part of the choreography in “Seifuku no Mannequin” reminds me of the haka. http://i.imgur.com/Ngw5r.png
