Start your bets ladies and gentlemen.

NMB48 sounded weird when it was announced but with management fast-tracking the auditions and having a special televised insider look, it’s quickly becoming reality.  Out of thousands, they’ve whittled it down to a hundred and six.

The video below shows those chosen few below.

Warning: many of them look pretty rough:

Sure they look pretty humdrum, but I remember feeling the same way about SKE48 when they first started out so I’ve learned to hold my tongue.  I’m sure with some polish and amazing hair products, the twenty chosen to be part of NMB48 will clean up well.

Who will you be betting on to move to the final round?  Time to place your bets!
