Anthony says: Maeda Ami is typically known for her distinguished eyebrows but she is much more than that. With her tall and slim stature, she has the weapons to be a fantastic performer to watch as she can cover ground and space with her long flowing limbs. She is known to be childish and immature but that’s understandable because she is still a young girl. For her to take the next step, I believe she needs to mature, have a little more sense of urgency and become known for something else besides her eyebrows. I believe she has the potential to be a top-tier member and she showcased her potential when she was the center for majority of the songs performed in the AKB x JKT concert in Jakarta. I have A LOT of high hopes for her. I mention her in our All Night NSK podcast coming up where we discuss the future of AKB48 and I think she can play a key role if she plays her cards right. Everyone should check her out on the skits that she has performed in “Bimyo”.
Garry says: “Hey it’s that one chick with the huge eyebrows right?” Yeah, you’re right that Maeda Ami does have some very prominant eyebrows but please don’t stop there. This girl right here is going to help shape AKB48 in the coming years. Sure she has that whole childish persona going on but as we saw in Jakarta (please go watch the AKB x JKT concert in Jakarta if you haven’t already), Ami can certainly step up to the plate when given the opportunity. While she may still have a ways to go before she’s completely ready for the lofty heights of media senbatsu I feel like she has everything she needs to get there one day. Idols need to have a lot of personality and charm, two things that Maeda Ami has in spades. Definitely one to watch for the future.
