Great fan video of First rabbit
from MNL48 article( https://mnl48.hallohallo.com/news-and-updates )
-AKS is planning to hold Asia Festivals in different regions because of the success of AKB48 Group Asia Festival 2019, hoping to make the idol culture known in the world.
-With the success of AKB48 Group Asia Festival this year, local and international fans, as well as the members of MNL48, couldn’t wait to see the group rock the stage once again on the next Asia Fest.
So we will be expecting a yearly fest around 1st quarter of the year. Oh my i cant wait to save up.
Success, yeah, but I hope they learned something from this and will adjust their venue and date choices in the future.
Sheki must have a height of around 148.5 (Takamina reference)
It is the first time that she performs in a big concert
She is standing next to Pun
...And still she manages to steal the show
Yea i notice how they want to focus the cam to pun but they have to turn the camera to sheki because shes overlapping the screen with her badass moves. way to go shekimini
I mean...I'd fall for these two.
The 2 youtube vids were gone already in less than 24hours, wow AKS surely is fast.
Yeah and I was away from the laptop and didn't manage download First Rabbit.
More fan videos from the same guy with amazing quality, watch before they are gone.
Yes please, and the festival content too. In my earlier post I did mention overall the non-concert items was OK; but it still lacked the festival feeling. Japan Expo Thailand probably had little more of a festive feel (I went on Friday). Thinking about it objectively, it felt more like a mini expo c/w promotion for the new CBB game to supplement the joint concert lol.
English language article in The Nation ("Thailand's most updated English news website").
"Pretty idols all in a row
Seventy-six girls from seven idol groups head to Bangkok for the first Asia Festival
Designed to thrill Thai followers of idol groups or otaku as they are collectively known, Asia Festival 2019, held at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani last Sunday, brought together AKB48, the best known Japanese outfit of the genre, and six of their sister groups from all over the region. Yet despite a good turnout, the event was probably not quite the success organisers had expected to be.
“The main objective of this festival is a cultural exchange,” he says. “But we faced problems in obtaining visas for the large number of members from all idol groups so they didn’t get to rehearse together as much as we would have wanted.” [comment from Nariaki Terada, director of AKS’s international business development]
Special mention was made of " Shen Ying, a cute looking lass with glasses, was obviously a firm favourite with yells erupting each time a close up of her appeared on the screen."
The pics are the same as the ones in the Oricon article linked by lionel90 on the previous page, but since they haven't been posted, here are a few.
You went for the Space Mission Concert in the morning, made it to Japan Expo, came back for the BNK General Election AND went all day for the Asia Festival & Concert the next day??? Wow...that sounds hella full and crazy packed. Mad respect.
Nana should have been in Blue Rose with Sheki that would be so funny lol.
Kaycee and Cindy really stood out. Hope to see more of them some day.
And AKB48 Team SH, from their facebook
Probably wrong thread but I just found Z-Girls, a kpop global girl group which every member came from every country with 48 group.
That’s actually interesting as it’s proves AKS choices weren’t random, those are places with potential for an idol market.
Yupi & Shani are in Japan right now.
Thought it was WRD48 related, actually just some jobs of their own, including Yupi photobook shooting?
They're in Abashiri in Northern Hokkaido right now. Snowy & icy.
Wrong thread. Why did you post it here?
Let's continue here btw
