AKB48 Team A Member Atsuko Maeda, who will be graduating from AKB48 on August 27, 2012. Release her 2nd solo single ‘Kimi wa Boku da’, on June 20. It sold 136,212 copies in it’s first week of release, to rank number two on the oricon weekly single chart. This single was release in three versions, since I like Acchan and she’ll be leaving AKB48 soon, Bought all three versions. I really like this single. I’m really surprise this single didn’t sell alot more, infact it sold more than 40K less than her 1st single ‘Flower’.

Rino Sashihara Scandal.

June 16, 2012

Just got back from a holiday, when I first read about this I though it was a joke.

On June 14 ‘Shukan Bunshun’ a tabloid magazine ran a story from an alleged ex-boyfriend of Sasshi, who she dated in the summer 2008-2009. The magazine included emails and photos (Including nude photos of herself), that she had sent to him. For her punishment she has been sent to one of their sister groups HKT48, which will only make HKT48 more popular. Good thing she’s a popular member or she would have been suspended for several months, or worse fired from the group. I’ve read that this a permanent moved, I think she’ll be back with AKB48 before the year ends. Then again maybe not, she’ll probably become the face of HKT48.

I think the reason they didn’t suspend her, is if they did that she won’t be able to do or participate in any AKB48 duties. With AKB48’s big Summer Concert at Tokyo Dome coming up on August 24-26, and their sisters group also being there. Don’t be surprise if Sasshi will be performing with AKB48, like she never left. That Tokyo Dome concert is also Acchan graduation date, as she will make her final AKB48 performance as an AKB48 member. On August 27 at there Theater.

I’d love to see those nude Sasshi photos.


Berryz Koubou at Animenext in Somerset, New Jersey, USA. 2012.

June 9, 2012

Earlier today I was in Somerset, New Jersey, USA. To attend animenext, because Berryz Koubou was there. I was there for Berryz Koubou Q&A Session, got all there autograph after. I wasn’t able to attend the concert yesterday Friday June 8, I blame ainmenext for that. They’re all so pretty, I just Love Yurina Kumai, she’s my favorite.

If Momoko Tsugunaga wasn’t so cute, I would say she’s full of herself. When I saw Yurina Kumai outside before their Saturday session, my imagination just went wild. When I went to get their autograpgh, I got a very close and long look at them. When I got to Yurina I kinda froze and was abit tongue tied, she just smiled. And what a pretty smile it was.
