Sashihara Rino officially moved to HKT48 with her own special category


Sashihara Rino has ‘officially’ been moved to HKT48. The staff has removed her profile from AKB48’s “Team A” category and it has been added to the HKT48 official member page. However, she is currently not under “Team H” or “ Research Student ”, she has a special category all to herself; “Team Undecided”.
Lastly, Sashihara has not been completely removed from AKB48’s homepage. Instead she has been moved to the bottom, below the research students under “HKT48”. Fans are unsure if this means she will be participating in the Tokyo Dome concert with AKB48 or if staff just wanted to keep her on AKB48’s page in some way.

NMB48 promotes Super Coolbiz at fashion show



On June 18th, NMB48 members Yamamoto Sayaka (18) and Watanabe Miyuki (18) went to a Kobe department store for a ‘Super Coolbiz‘ PR event. Coolbiz is a government campaign to get people to wear lighter clothing during the summer and thus conserve energy by having their air conditioners on temperatures that aren’t too low.

The two members of NMB48 are often wearing mini-skirts on stage, but at the event, they participated in a fashion show showing off some very breathable pants that were made to be easy to move around in.

Yamamoto commented, “We don’t normally wear clothes like this.
Before the fashion show, there was a talk event where they introduced a scarf soaked in water. Watanabe showed her surprise, “It’s really cool and refreshing.

Akimoto Yasushi decides to create AKB48 Team 8


On March 24th, AKB48 producer Akimoto Yasushi announced through Google+ that he will soon be creating ‘Team 8′.
Following ‘Team A’, ‘Team K’, ‘Team B’, and ‘Team 4′, ‘Team 8′ will be the 5th team from AKB48.
During the 2nd night of AKB48’s Saitama Super Arena concert, there was a surprise announcement that 5 Research Students have been promoted to Team 4. With this promotion, Team 4 now has a total of 16 members, but there are still many Research Students who have not been promoted yet.

After the concert, captain Takahashi Minami gave a word of encouragement to the girls saying, “Don’t be discouraged. Take a look at yourself again and think about what you’re missing, and do your best.
While no details on ‘Team 8′ have been revealed at this time, Akimoto explained, “Since there are many people concerned about the Research Students who didn’t get promoted, I will talk about something that should’ve been announced earlier. I will make Team 8. I want them to aim for that.

Surprice News :o

Some time ago at the end of SSA, there was a “Suprise Announcement” and I’d like to inform it to you.

Today, there were two announcements.

First, promotion to team 4.
Members are
Kato Rena
Kawaei Rina
Iwata Karen
Tano Yuka
Takahashi Juri

These 5 names.

And then another one is, to fill in one empty position at each team K and B, new member will be announced.

The one who will join team K is
from SKE48 team S, Matsui Jurina.

The one who will join team B is
from NMB48 team N, Watanabe Miyuki.

After joining the team, from now on too both of them will keep doing their activities at SKE team S and NMB team N as dual position.
Their dual position as AKB48 will be only for limited period of time, but along with this, as sister groups, we think this is a chance to polish each other’s quality and grow. We hope fans would watch over us warmly.
From now on too, please do support AKB48 group.

How To Ask A Girl Out ??? :0 :(

♥  ~ There is 8 Useful Question ~

1. Want To Date Your Crush ?

We've all been there. You have a crush who is a friend or colleague and you want to ask her out. All you have to do is ask, right? But there's more to it. Chances are, you might be thinking on how to get the ball rolling without ruining the friendship. While it might seem like a piece of cake, there are several things you need to keep in check before making that very move...

2. Her Action ?

First things first, does she like you? Most girls show their interest subtly but you can sense rejections from the hints she drops. For instance, if she never replies your text, you might think that she doesn't want to have anything to do with you. But if she's been giving out mixed signals, she's probably trying to get your attention and you should not feel discouraged just yet. Ask if she receives the text from you. If she says "I forgot to reply." or "I was really busy.", you can be sure that she's really not into you.

3. Be Bold Enough ?

Remember, she's not the only fish in the sea. Don't ever let the fear of rejection get the better of you. Do you want to miss it out just because you're afraid? And on the bright side, a 'no' doesn't mean that she won't say 'yes' in the future. Put yourself in her shoes, who doesn't like a confident person? You'd be surprised at how much it helps.

4. Be Clear ?

If you're afraid of being rejected, you tend to be vague. For example, you'd say "Let's go out one day." or "Let's go out if you want." The problem is, more often than not, the girl will reject you if you're being unclear. And most of them find guys like that insincere. More importantly, she might nod and say 'okay' but you don't know for sure if she'd really go out with you. Plus, you'd need to go through all over again to set a date with her. It's best to specify when. So, appear nonchalant and try "Do you want to go out this Sunday?" Don't worry if she'll be busy on that day. If she's interested, she'll suggest alternatives. Even with rejection, at least you can stop wasting time and move on faster.

5. Avoid Being Overly Eager ?

Never come off as a creeper by flooding her Facebook inbox or calling her up in the middle of the night. And you reek of desperation when you say "Can you please go out with me?" or "Why would you never go out with me?". Pulling off that sympathy or emotional card will turn the girl off quicker than you think.

6. No ' Right ' Time ?

Fact is you're probably just afraid or deluding yourself into thinking that there's a 'right' time to ask a girl out. You don't need to know a lot about her for a date. And most think that by making her wait will instead pique her curiosity. When you've hinted her your interest, don't wait too long before initiating the move. She'd think that she might have picked up wrong signals from you and she'll start losing interest.

7. Always Be Prepared For The Worst ?

Sometimes, she just doesn't have that feeling for you. Most girls are too nice to take the direct approach when it comes to rejecting someone but know when to give up. If she tells you she's crushing on someone else or not looking for a relationship at the moment, it means she's making it crystal clear. We advise you to move on to another prospect.

8. Failed ? Try Again... :)

So, it's a 'no'? Don't throw in the towel yet. If you really like your crush, you can always try again. Be persistent (but not overly) and when done correctly, she'll probably give you the chance and say 'yes' eventually. Wait a few more weeks before asking her out again. Avoid being pushy or you'll end up being treated like a stalker. She might give you the cold shoulder forever and even cut contact with you.

Japanese Girl Group SDN48 Bids Farewell

The Mammoth Girl Group Will Hold Their Final Concert On Mar 31 In Japan

 
 
After two years, it's time for us to say sayonara to Japanese girl group SDN48 at their farewell concert in Japan on Mar 31.
Formed in 2009, SDN48, an acronym for 'Saturday Night 48', is the sister group of immensely popular Japanese girl group AKB48. Both groups were formed by Mr Yasushi Akimoto, a Japanese television writer and record producer.
While AKB4 portrays a cute image, SDN48 is created based on an 'adult idol' concept', which is characterised by their sexier outfits and more suggestive dance choreography.

This is seen in their music video for Yaritagariya-san, in which the girls stripped down to lacy underwear and took self-portraits with a camera.
While members of SDN48 unanimously described their group's concept as 'sexy', reporters were not allowed to questions regarding the risqué video or the girls showing sexuality overtly during a recent interview in Singapore.
Unlike previous "graduations" -- which involved a small number of members -- all 39 members from SDN48 will graduate together this time, thus concluding the group's first chapter.
Prior to their Mar 31 Japanese concert, 12 SDN48 girls arrived in Singapore last week to say their final goodbyes to their local fans.
"It's been eight years since I went to Japan," said Chen Qu who is from China, before adding, "I would like to thank the fans for their support all these while. I hope that they will continue to support me and my members even after our graduation."


During an interview with xinmsn, member Serina shared with us her thoughts on graduating from the group.
"It was sad at first, but I've come to terms with it now. We realised our dreams through being part of SDN48, but we can only learn more after graduating from the group," she replied thoughtfully.
Haruka Kohara then quipped, "I'm going to miss everything, but definitely missing the members most. They're like my family."

Nacchan and Yonechan leave AKB







Hirajima Natsumi Is My Oshima In AKB48. Hope She Recover From Her Mistake.

Wish Her All The Best. I Am Still Supporting Her.

The reason why they decided to leave the group were not revealed, however, recently, their private photos (including photos taken with guys) have been leaked on the internet through their private Twitter accounts and many are speculating that this could be the reason.

AKB48 1st generation member Hirajima Natsumi (19) and 3rd generation member Yonezawa Rumi (20) have both resigned from AKB48, after getting into a scandal involving boyfriends.

From the AKB Official blog:
Today, Hirajima Natsumi and Yonezawa Rumi both requested to resign from AKB48.

I apologize for the announcement being so sudden.

Below are messages from the both of them to their fans:

I, Hirajima Natsumi, will hereby resign from AKB48 and Watarirouka Hashiritai.
I'm sorry this announcement was so sudden.

I'm terribly sorry to have caused trouble for everyone.
To everyone who supported me, the members, the staff, and everyone involved with AKB48, I'm really sorry.

I'll separate myself from AKB48 and Watarirouka Hashiritai, but I hope you'll cheer me on so that I can meet all of you again as Hirajima Natsumi.
I'm terribly sorry.
Hirajima Natsumi
-----
I, Yonezawa Rumi, will hereby resign from AKB48 as of today.

I'm sorry this is such a sudden announcement.

To everyone who supported me, I'm both full of thankfulness and the feeling that this was inexcusable.

Thank you for these 5 years.
I was always supported during this time.

I'll continue my activities solo from now on.

I'm terribly sorry that I caused trouble for the members, the fans, and for AKB48. I'm really sorry.
----
Those were their messages.

As for handshake events and what will happen after this, we'll make an announcement in a few days.

School Reopen Soon...

School Reopen On Monday... Every boring.. Going New Class. Got... New Teacher and also New Homework To Do.. -,-"

YUI - How Crazy Your Love


J-pop sweetheart, YUI, proves her popularity once again with her fifth album, How Crazy Your Love, which topped the Oricon charts. The album has an acoustic pop heart, with a touch of indie rock. "Green a.live", previously released as a single, is a pop rock number with lyrics that tug at heartstrings. Intriguingly, I sensed a tinge of sadness in her voice in most of the songs. It may be becausee her singing style has matured over the years, or perhaps she has been through a lot. Nonetheless, it added life to the album and made the lyrics more relatable. :D

Powerful Quake Rocks Tokyo Region. Oh No ~ ! Japan Is My Favourite Country... :(


:( ~ From Newspaper ~ :(

A major 7.0-magnitude earthquake rocked Tokyo Sunday, Japan's Meteorological Agency said, there were no immediate reports of damage or injury and no tsunami warning was issued.

The quake struck at 2:28pm (0528 GMT), the agency said. Its epicentre was located near Torishima, an island about 560 kilometres (350 miles) south of Tokyo. It was about 370 kilometres (230 miles) deep.

The mid-afternoon quake swayed buildings in Tokyo but it did not disrupt the final of the Emperor's Cup football tournament under way at the National Stadium.
