Takahashi Minami and Yokoyama Yui attend 1 year anniversary event for ‘AKB48 Official Shop Harajuku’



On July 30th, AKB48’s Takahashi Minami (21) and Yokoyama Yui (19) made a surprise appearance at the 1 year anniversary event for ‘AKB48 Official Shop Harajuku‘.
The crowd of 50 fans who visited at the shop exclaimed “Wow!” and “Seriously?!” as Takahashi and Yokoyama made their way into the store. The two held a talk session with their fans for about 15 minutes.
Regarding, swimmer Hagino Kosuke (17), who took the bronze medal in the men’s 400m individual medley, Takahashi commented, “Hagino-san, whose oshimen is Yuko-chan, is younger than me… he’s amazing. I can feel that there are many people in my generation taking part in it. Also, soccer is exciting! There was a time when I thought… Spain! I am also cheering for Nadeshiko Japan.
Meanwhile, Yokoyama commented on the group’s dream concert at Tokyo Dome (August 24th to the 26th). “It’s Tokyo Dome, so I want to play baseball. I want to hit a homerun.” When Takahashi suggested, “How about starting the concert when Yui hits a homerun?“, Yokoyama gave up on her idea saying, “That sounds good. But you can’t easily hit a homerun in the first place… Maybe we should call it quits.
To celebrate it’s 1 year anniversary, ‘AKB48 Official Shop Harajuku’ will carry t-shirts, mug cups, and other goods designed by Takahashi for a limited quantities.

AKB48’s Iwasa Misaki attends a big hit event for her solo debut single



On July 29th, AKB48’s Iwasa Misaki attended a big hit event for her solo debut single, “Mujin Eki“, at Kuniyoshi Station in Chiba Prefecture.
This marked Iwasa’s first time holding an event at a “mujin eki” (“unstaffed train station”). “Since I made my debut with ‘Mujin Eki’, I had a reckless wish to hold an event at an empty train station in my hometown, Chiba. I’m extremely happy to make it come true,” she said.
Iwasa was able to ride and conduct a special train called “Wasamin-gou” for the day. With 40 lucky fans, she went on a 20-minute journey from Kuniyoshi Station to Ohara Station. She reflected, “It’s my first time being ’something’ for a day. I had yearned for it, so today has become the best memory of my summer. Just from today, I learned a lot about Isumi Railway. It made me think about how interesting railways are. I might become a railway otaku.
After the train ride, Iwasa sang “Mujin Eki“, the enka version of “Heavy Rotation“, and a cover of Jounouchi Sanae’s “Ajisai Bashi” in front of about 1,500 fans. She also held a handshake event and commemorative stamp event in the parking lot of the station.

AKB48’s Shinoda Mariko is sexy and alluring for ‘IQUEEN’



AKB48’s Shinoda Mariko was chosen for the 10th volume of Plup’s popular photo book series ‘IQUEEN‘, which is being released as a normal photo book and a high resolution digital photo set.
‘IQUEEN’ is known for explo
ring the mature and alluring charms of its celebrity photo models and Shinoda’s pictorial is no exception. The theme for her pictorial is “SECRET” and she’s sporting various outfits from patterned stockings, over a white tank top to a gorgeous red dress.
Shinoda is the first member of an idol group to be featured in this series, but due to her wide range of activities from modeling to acting outside of AKB48, she seems to blend right in next to Nagasawa Masami, Hirosue Ryoko, Kimura Kaela, Toda Erika and all the other great women who already call a volume of ‘IQUEEN’ their own. Shinoda’s cute and beautiful looks have gained her a lot of fans over the years, but sensual and alluring themes are still considered a new challenge for her.
This book is going for a very calm and quiet atmosphere. Shinoda is merely relaxing in a hotel room, yet she’s able to create an incredible tension with just her outstanding beauty and her straight and strong gazes into the camera. The breathtaking pictures were taken by photographer Tamagawa Ryu.
The two normal photo books ‘IQUEEN Vol.10 Shinoda Mariko‘ (A4 size, 96 pages) and ‘IQUEEN Vol.10 Shinoda Mariko SPECIAL EDITION‘ (B1 size, 12 double pages) already went on sale on July 27th, while the ‘IQUEEN Vol.10 Shinoda Mariko DIGITAL EDITION‘ (4K resolution, 3D) is scheduled to hit the Japanese Playstation Stores sometime in August.

On July 21st, Akimoto Yasushi announced on his Google+ profile that, as a result of a meeting with the AKB48 overseas team, a study abroad program has been set up for AKB48 and related groups. In the same post, he made a call for interested members to apply for the program.
Members in Japan could study abroad as a member of overseas sister groups of AKB48, such as JKT48 in Indonesia, SNH48 in Shanghai and TPE48 in Taiwan. The period of study abroad could be from 6 months to a year. In an updated post, Akimoto clarified, “Since it is connected with the overseas TV, maybe they can still be active even if they are outside the country.
What do you think about his new idea?

However, on the day of the performance and in the midst of Sashihara’s solo rendition of AKB48’s “Aitakatta!”, Maeda Atsuko, Takahashi Minami, Watanabe Mayu and other AKB48 members rushed on stage in a surprise appearance.  It was a heartwarming moment as they sang “Aitakatta, Sashiko~“.
The ladies continued the performance with a medley of “Heavy Rotation“, “Everyday Kachuusha“, “Manatsu no Sounds Good!” and “Aitakatta!” with Sashihara in the center position. In the last scene, Shofukutei Tsurube, dressed up as “Tsurubekhamen”, barged in, took center position and brought the event to a lively climax.
Sashihara commented excitedly, “I was really surprised. I’m really happy that everybody could join me on stage. In all honesty, I was rather uneasy about performing solo and in such a good time slot too! (around 6pm). I’m really glad they came.”

Finally, Oshima gave the appeal of the film saying, “I voiced the character with love. I want everyone to accept this charming character that I love. I think Merida will push the backs of everyone.

AKB48’s Kuramochi Asuka throws a dead ball during opening pitch


French Kiss, sub-unit of popular idol group AKB48, threw the first pitch for the baseball match between Yokohama DeNA BayStars and Tokyo Yakult Swallows at Yokohama Stadium on July 18th.
Kuromochi Asuka is the daughter of Kuromochi Akira, a former pitcher for the Yakult Swallows. It’s been close to two years since she last pitched, and Kuromochi threw the ball with all her strength. However, the ball strayed left, bounced once, and hit Uchimura Kensuke from DeNA BayStars.
Born and raised in Yokohama, Kuramochi has been to the Yokohama stadium many times. Kuramochi pitched a dead ball despite receiving advice from DeNA pitcher Miura Daisuke and having played catch with her dad since she was young. She commented that when her parents greeted her after the pitch, her dad told her, “I can’t believe you pitched a ball that bounced once!
Kashiwagi Yuki, fellow French Kiss member, had more encouraging words for her, “The way you brought your leg up when you pitched was really cool!” Member Takajo Aki commented that because she’s good as sports, she would like to try to pitch next time, and Kashiwagi responded hesitantly, “If both of you pitched, and we will be taking turns then I guess I will do it too…
For the opening pitch ceremony, French Kiss  performed their newest single “Romance Privacy“. Dressed in cute costumes, the girls were a refreshing presence in the hot and humid weather.

AKB48’s Kashiwagi Yuki becomes “Satsuma ambassador” in Kagoshima


On July 17th, AKB48’s Kashiwagi Yuki was inaugurated as the “Satsuma ambassador” to promote her hometown of Kagoshima.
Kashiwagi paid a visit to governor Ito Yuichiro in Kagoshima, who presented the idol with a letter of appointment. “From the day I was born to the day I entered AKB48, for 15 years I was raised in Kagoshima. Right now, I’m very happy that I’ll get to promote the place I love that raised me,” she said.
Kashiwagi was chosen as the ambassador after her tv CMs and image posters for ‘Honmono. Kagoshima-ken‘ received favorable reputation. Sashihara Rino was previously appointed the sightseeing ambassador for Oita City, but Kashiwagi has become the first member to take on an entire prefecture. She expressed, “One day, I want to hold a live in Kagoshima, and call out, ‘Tadaima! (I’m home!)’. I want to continue to do my best.
In the morning, Kashiwagi held a photo shoot at Sakurajima while wearing an Oshima tsumugi weave (kimono made in Kyushu). She also sang her new solo song, “Kazanbai“, held a campaign in her hometown, made live appearances on 3 news programs, and held a handshake event in Kagoshima for the first time.
“Kanzanbai” was written by AKB48 producer Akimoto Yasushi, and it’s filled with one’s thoughts about their hometown. Kashiwagi commented, “Things like my hometown and my friends, the song is about my childhood. It’s become one of my favorite songs. I want to sing it carefully from now on.
This song can be found as the coupling track in French Kiss‘ single, “Romance Privacy“.

Nogizaka46 chosen as new CM characters for House Foods’ “Megashaki”


On July 18th, Nogizaka46 attended a CM presentation event for House Foods‘ carbonated drink, “Megashaki“, as its new CM characters.
Nogizaka46 formed in August of last year as the official rival of AKB48, and made their debut in February. Sakurai Reika expressed, “We have to aim really high. We will do our best to catch up to them as soon as possible.” She also commented on this year’s ‘Kohaku Uta Gassen‘ saying, “If we have a chance, we’d like to appear.
As their short-term goal, Sakurai revealed that they’d like to “actively hold concerts.” The group’s center Ikoma Rina added, “I want to hold one in my hometown of Akita! Since it’s always left out during tours.” Hearing Ikoma’s statement, Matsumura Sayuri said, “At first, she looked like she was from the countryside, but now, she’s the one pulling Nogizaka.
Nogizaka46’s 3rd single, “Hashire! Bicycle“, will be used in the new CM for House Foods’ “Megashaki” starting July 23rd. The highlight of this CM is the scene where the members get soaking wet.
The scene where we stand under a waterfall was very cold so it was really difficult,” Sakurai reflected. Meanwhile, Hashimoto Nanami said, “The first and second times were difficult, but the third time, we were in high spirits so we had fun.
After energetically performing “Hashire! Bicycle”, Sakurai shared, “It’s an uptempo song that’s different from our songs up to now. It’s a song that will get you excited, and it’s also perfect for the summer.

AKB48’s Shinoda Mariko reveals her desire for marriage



On July 17th, AKB48’s Shinoda Mariko held a product launch event for the 2nd collection of her wedding dress brand, ‘Love Mary‘.
When asked about the topic of marriage, Shinoda revealed, “I want to eventually get married. I will think about marriage after I graduate from AKB48. I want to start love after graduating.
On this day, tv/radio personality Sakajo Miki announced her pregnancy at 53 years of age. Shinoda commented, “Congratulations. It gave me courage. Maybe I don’t have to get married until I’m in my 50’s.
At this event, Shinoda got to wear 2 of her dresses, while 3 other models also appeared wearing colored dresses. She smiled as she said, “I want to wear them all. My wedding ceremony? I want to have it overseas. I want to have it many times. When it comes to wedding dresses, I want to wear many of them.” Regarding her ideal type, she revealed. “I like someone who’s playful. I want to be able to act stupid together. My type is someone who’s mischievous.
Additionally, Shinoda was questioned about Maeda Atsuko’s graduation as well as Sashihara Rino’s transfer to HKT48. “Things haven’t changed. Everyone is carefree. Acchan, since her graduation was decided, she’s been open and cheerful. Sasshi comes back on programs, so the atmosphere doesn’t really change.” She continued, “But she has to go back and forth from Fukuoka to Tokyo, so she seems to be physically worn out.
The theme of Shinoda’s 2nd collection is “gorgeous adult”. It will be available at ceremonial halls and dress shops starting in spring of 2013.

On July 14, actor Moriyama Mirai (27) and AKB48’s Maeda Atsuko (21) made public apperances to greet fans on the opening day of the film “Kueki Ressha” (directed by Yamashita Nobuhiro) at the Marunouchi TOEI (1) in Tokyo.
Comedian Makita Sports, who also appeared on stage spoke about Moriyama and joked with dark humor (about Sawajiri Erika, and her starring movie “Helter Skelter“), “He has not gotten plastic surgery on his whole body, or he would not neglect his duties to greet fans on stage.”  Maeda, who plays the heroine in the film, gave a shocking confession about Moriyama, who plays the good-for-nothing protagonist Kitamachi with, “I do not know whether I like Moriyama or Kitamachi, but I like him.”  Moriyama appeared embarrassed as he answered, “It seems you do.”

On July 15th, AKB48’s Oshima Yuko appeared at Imado Shrine in Tokyo to pray for the success of Disney-Pixar’s animated film, ‘Merida to Osoroshi no Mori‘ (‘Brave‘).
Oshima voices the protagonist ‘Merida’ in the Japanese dubbed version of the film. During the event, she challenged herself to shooting a bow and arrow. Visibly nervous, she shared, “It’s my first time, so I have to hit the target. I have confidence.” As Oshima hit the bull’s eye on her first try, she exclaimed, “I did it! Wow! I’m glad.
After praying for the movie’s success, Oshima commented, “The movie takes place in Scotland, so it’s a strange feeling to pray for its success at a shrine in Japan.” Regarding the voiceovers, she reflected, “At first I thought, ‘I’m talking’, but I slowly began to think it was Merida.
‘Merida to Osoroshi no Mori’ will open in theaters across Japan on July 21st.

Kashiwagi, who says she always depends on her members, seemed a little concerned, “When I go solo, I won’t have anybody to depend on. What should I do?” She also shared her goals saying, “Mayuyu sings idol-like songs, so I hope to sing different types of songs. I want to be able to sing ballads.
After having a bite of Takajo’s cake, Kashiwagi expressed, “It’s delicious! It tastes like the ones they sell in stores! You can run a pastry shop.” In response, Takajo explained that this was her first time making a strawberry tart, “Yukirin said that she likes tarts, so I looked it up and made it myself. I’m relieved that she said it was good.
French Kiss held 3 performances throughout the day with about 4,500 people who pre-ordered “Romance Privacy”. Aside the title track, they sang a total of 5 songs including “Saisho no Mail” and “Kakkowarui I love you!“.

AKB48’s Kashiwagi Yuki to make her solo debut




On July 13th, AKB48 member Kashiwagi Yuki held “1st Solo Live ~Netemo Sametemo Yukirin World~” in Tokyo.
This live was to commemorate the release of her 2nd photobook “Yu,Yu,Yukirin…” (Shueisha), and 2,000 lucky fans who were chosen by lot, attended the live.  Since it was the 1st solo live for Kashiwagi, she seemed to be a bit nervous.  She performed a total of 17 songs including some cover songs such as “Momoiro Kataomoi” (Matsuura Aya) and “Chokotto LOVE” (Petitmoni), and said “I can’t be happier to see all the Uchiwas and boards say ‘Yukirin’.” with big smile on her face.  During the live, Kashiwari showed off her several faces by appearing in many different costumes, and attracted the fans.  She also did “Virtual Clothes Changing Show” in which colorful images reflect by the projector on Kashiwagi’s white one piece.

 

At the live event, there was a big surprise for Kashiwagi which was announced by Nagura Jun (of comedian trio Neptune) who belongs to the same agency as Kashiwagi.  Nagura gave her a message from producer, Akimoto Yasushi, that was posted on Google+.  It says, “Though I could not make it to your live since the meeting was prolonged, I am announcing this on Google+.  I am making Kashiwagi Yuki debut as solo.  I’m entranced by Kashiwagi’s ballads.  You don’t have to worry about ‘French Kiss‘ since the unit will proceed as well.”  Listening to the message, Kashiwagi could not put her face up for a while, and said, “When a surprise and joy come together, I can’t say any words.  I can feel that dreams can come true.

During the encore, fellow French Kiss members, Takajo Aki and Kuramochi Asuka made their appearance as surprise guests, and they all performed the unit’s new song “Romance Privacy” (to be released on July 18th).
Stay tuned for further details on Kashiwagi Yuki’s solo debut!
