AKB48- New Team A, New Team K, New Team B.

The Team shuffle that was first announced during AKB48 concert at Tokyo Dome on August 24th of this year, came into effect today (November 1st). It’s the second team shuffle that’s happen the last one being on March 3, 2010. They’re back to being three teams, Team 4 as been eliminated.

I could say how much I hate this I hate change, I won’t. Change can be good, the same thing all time could get boring. For better or for worse it’s never boring in the AKB48 family, who knows what they’ll come up tomorrow. The only thing I don’t like is members transferring to their sister groups, and being temporary members with this group. I also don’t like Haruna Kojima is no longer in Team A.

New Team A (22 Memberts) – I like this Team it’s a very young Team, it’s loaded with former Team 4 and Research Students members. With Juri and Ricchan, I’m going to enjoy watching this Team.

Team A is what an Idol group is suppose to be, very professional. The A Team.
