I suggest you watch SKE48's "Ebi Friday Night". It's subbed, and it's guaranteed to make you like them.

I'll try it out! Any for NMB48? They kind of seem... meh.

Looks like TPE48 died before it could even exist XD.

NM48 is my favorite sister group but there isn't much subbed stuff for them I think, aside from their sitcom Geinin!

Yeah TPE48 just never really existed. I wonder why.

I am not really looking for subbed stuff XD.

Do they have an quality songs?

TPE48 probably died because Aki-P was busy with the other groups.

Oh! Then if you don't mind raws...

NMB to Manabukun is a quiz show with a comedian as the host. It's sort of educational.

Mezase 100-man en!! BLACK $ MILLION is a game show. It's more exciting than Manabukun, IMO. It's not as good to get to know the girls though.

Geinin is a sitcom where the girls play girls who are in the comedy club in their high school. I personally don't like sitcoms and it doesn't feature all the girls but it's a good start.

Good songs though! That's easier. Let me post a bunch.

One girl looks like Risako XD.

They sound pretty good. I could follow them XD.

I wish JKT48 and SNH48 could do more! They could get their own singles. The image and the lyrics could be all Aki-P, while they can hire a guy to translate the lyrics into their native languages.

I don't know, they just seem like awesome groups.

lol can you point out the girl you think looks like Risako?

Yeah I guess the JKT48 and SNH48 singles are just covers, but maybe they'll get their own eventually, like how the teams start out by covering previous stages but eventually get their own.

I realllllllly love both groups. They are great.

Also if we go by that logic, wouldn't Sayu's remark be a reaction to HKT48's live PV for Melon Juice?



pt. 2 SKe pulled off a friggn holy shit wow concert PV.

both 48 groups? seems way too sus :fear:

In the last video's thumbnail, the girl on the left XD.

But seriously though, I was hoping that for JKT48's second year anniversary, maybe they could get songs of their own.

Okay so I don't know the NMB girls *that* well but yeah she does look quite a bit like Risako. The girls in that PV are Murase Sae, Akazawa Hono, Kusaka Konomi, Kobayashi Rikako, Muro Kanako, Kawakami Chihiro, Shibuya Nagisa, Hayashi Momoka.

I can tell you that it's neither Murase Sae nor Kobayashi Rikako so that leaves 6 girls lol.

I think it might be Akazawa Hono

However, I can reasonably assume that part of that contract (as is with most contracts) states that they would have to follow company policies whichever they may be. This includes the love-ban, conduct, and anything else the Up Front or any other agency demands of its talents. The love-ban might not be part of their contract per se, but as it is a policy, the girls have to follow it.

As to why agencies like Up Front still keep that love-ban thing going, well, I think Zunu has explained it in the best possible way. Lifting it might actually bring Up Front more problems than it solves.

Re: Milky. I like the girl, but I think that what she supposedly did wasn't so out of character for her anyway. But if you wanna follow this up otaku_blue we can take it to the 48rants thread.


Its not out of her character definitely, but it was definitely a factor into her falling ranks in senbatsu.

Oh I really agree. It was a really hard time for her fans especially those who held on to the belief that nothing ever actually happened. I used to check out the NMB girls because they can do really good comedy so I knew about her previous indiscretion. I really don't take it against her (I'm probably more than a casual "fan" when it comes to her and Sayanee, but I still can't officially call them my first 48Group Oshis), but this shows why it's still pretty difficult to totally lift the love ban.

Her thank you speech at the sousenkyo was heart-wrenching.

Whoever handles them (not familiar with how AKB groups are run, sorry) is taking the "Milky Route" which is to not talk about it at all. From visits to various threads, it seems her silence doesn't sit well with a lot of fans. Can't really comment much because I'm not yet used to the fan dynamics among AKB fans, but as HKT earned a lot of points from me for performing The Peace in their concert (and it was Murashige who was with Sashihara when she gave chocolates to MM '14), I'm pretty much concerned with how it will affect her.

I dont really value NMB48 since I only care for 3 girls excluding concurrent members.
That is Shibuya Nagisa, Sayanee, and Milky. It used to be before Keira but shes graduating welp.

She actually didnt stay silent I heard reports saying she said stuff "Don't trust anyone else, trust Milky". But it was really suspicious the whole scandal...

ALSO MAN IM ANNOYED AT KOKORO NO PLACARD BEING KOISURU FORTUNE COOKIE PART 2 DAMMIT MAYU ITS BEEN 2 SINGLES AND YOUR CENTRE SINGLES HAVE SUCKED JUST AS MUCH AS YOUR SOLO SINGLES DAMMIT

I think that's more of Milky's attempts to handle the situation outside of what her agency is telling her to do (sorta like Sayanee's statement on her supposed scandal with that guy from One Ok Rock which turned out to be fake after all). The official stance is still "don't talk about it". Props to Milky for doing that. It shows that she does care about how her fans will take this. Still, it's really hard to think that nothing happened. Not that I don't trust Milky just that, well, you know, Milky is Milky.

As for Kokoro No Placard, well, I don't really listen to AKB songs so this doesn't affect me. But hey, at least it will sell more than a million. KFC's videos were actually pretty entertaining (I watched it with the audio off) all things considering.

why did you have the audio off?

well they shot the MV today and it has an extremely *similar concept and intention to work the same way as KFC. Its just man, they really could've done something more unique ugh.

I guess thats Aki-P attacking the fact that Mayu is really just an artificial imitation of a conventional idol :hehe:
haha but man her quest for the top, to now try and become the new kfc is just :?: :hmmm:

Well, call it my personal way of approaching AKB songs. There are a few songs from the 48Groups that I like, say, Yankee Soul, Milky's Warukii (which is in my Ipod), and that HKT song from last year (never bothered to know the title, sorry). I know it sounds silly, but that's how I roll.

Between Mayuyu and Sashihara, I like the latter one more. They're both good, just that Sashihara isn't your every day idol and it's refreshing. She's an H!P wota too, that matters a lot in my book.
