AKB48 is a female Japanese idol group produced by Yasushi Akimoto. Unlike other idol groups in Japan, AKB's concept is "Idols you can meet" (「会いに行けるアイドル」). for such reason, AKB48 have their own theatre where they perform regularly during the week, and as much as 4 shows a day.

The name derives from a shortened, Romanized representation of "AKihaBara", where their theatre is set up. "48" stands for the total of members included in the group.

To perform in the theatre, AKB is divided into tree teams consisting of 16 members (making the total of 48 members): Team A (captain: Takahashi Minami), Team K (captain: Akimoto Sayaka), and Team B (captain: Kashiwagi Yuki). the set of songs they perform are called Stages (or "Kouen", the japanese word for Stage/Performance/show), and each team have a different setlists with a different sound compared to the other teams (Team A is seen as a "classical idol group", Team K as a "cool idol group" and Team B as a "modern idol group").

Since their change of labels from Sony/DefStar to KING RECORDS, AKB's popularity has grown to amazing levels. to the point that nowadays they are the most popular idol group and one of the best-selling artist of japan

Re: The Team A thread!

Re: The Team A thread!

I was just planning on creating a separate thread for all three teams for non release talk to go into since there are so many girls.

Re: The Team A thread!

hmm

honestly...I have no idea how to organize an AKB forum.

My suggestion~
Should we have AKB, SDN, SKE stickied? since it's the bread and butter for this subforum.
Then have subgroups / units and such + indivual team threads?

or as is now is okay?

Re: The Team A thread!

Well, because the group is the way it is, here is my suggestion

Team A, K & B threads, because they are largest and most popular (and have so many research students.) This is not for talk about releases, but just the girls themselves, their Stages, videos, etc. Everyone seems to have a fav team. Then SKE, SDN and NMB threads(these are pinned). They would also have separate release threads. Subgroups should only get threads on a release basis (like how things are in the MM thread) to make it less mess, then we could have a Subgroups~ musings/rants thread (since the main groups already have their own threads) and then the media/magazine/TV, Oricon ranking, Photobook, etc. threads could be shared

Re: The Team A thread!

hmmm interesting... i'll see how it goes after all the main topics are set then we can do mergers and such later. (since i'm the only member who made subunit threads)

Don't feel like AKB48 Theater SHOULD necessarily copy MM's subforum style but definately borrow some of thier ideas. (i.e Random Thread)

Re: The Team A thread!

I agree, but they are similar in that they are companies full of idols and many aspects of the format the MM subforum uses do work.


However, my suggestion is very different from how the MM sub forum is set up anyway smiley: laugh

Re: The Team A thread!

mmm how about the general infoormation about AKB?

or is that like assumed? I was thinking that the AKB48 thread would potentially serve as an information with release but ...hmm

your original idea was great too.


(you can still create the SDN48 thread at least .___. hahaha)

lmao lololol

eh. i dont really think mocchi is lesbian lol


im quite sure that our captain is gay though <3.

i think team threads are pointless if they dont have enough activity, but if they do why not.

and release threads is pointless as well. its not like any of the release threads for the subgroups would go over 5 pages (if lucky lol). possibly the same for the main groups, actually.

Re: The Team A thread!

mmmm allright

so for now keep the flow going with the SKE, AKB, SDN, NMB threads and subgroups/subunit threads.

until a growing AKB interest calls for it~ then we can reorganize n such.



Originally didn;t think of the possibility it'll reach the acitivity of a MM JPM subforum but potentially it could.
For now it's okay with somthing simple to start off somthing better than the constipated AKB48+others thread originally was.

Apparently AKB48 is hosting the MTV Video Music Aid Japan on June 25th? Only confirmed artist to perform is Lady Gaga at the moment but i'm guessing AKB48 will as well

Lady GaGa will perform at MTV's Video Music Aid Japan in June, it has been announced.

The 'Born This Way' star is the first artist confirmed for the tenth annual Video Music Awards Japan event, which will benefit the Japanese Red Cross.

The June 25 event ceremony will serve as the culmination of MTV Japan's Music of Hope campaign - the network's multiplatform response to the devastating earthquake and tsunami which hit the country on March 11.

Hosted by Japanese pop star AKB48, MTV Video Music Aid Japan will be broadcast live from Makuhari Messe to more than 30 million homes on MTV Japan, MTV Korea, MTV China and MTV Southeast Asia. A one-hour version will be shown on further MTV channels worldwide.

More performers, presenters and guests will be announced in the lead up to the ceremony.
