    According to the other wiki. Epic ... which is a Sony sublabel (you would expect a King records sublabel, but it almost looks like No3b seems to be co-owned by AKS and Ogi Pro, they are still listed on Ogi Pro's site iirc)

    the website has been updated as well to reflect that they are now on Spotify, Apple Music, LINE Music ans Amazon Music

    Japanese Wikipedia currently says that the owner of no3b is Production Ogi Co., Ltd. and the label is Epic Records Japan (Sony Music Labels).

    In a way this is kinda weird, as no3b was one of the more successful subunits, and you would have expected for AKS to retain control (at least for some level).

    The 10th anniversary was completely run by M&S (Ogi Pro)


    anyway ... no obstacles for a reunion tour with a new single in 2028 then ;)

    was looking up the Ogi Pro website, and found a press release about Kahala Tomomi
    when you look at her Wikipedia entry you see rumours of substance abuse and that Ogi Pro fired her in 2007 due to 'repeated personal problems affected her professional appearances'
    It seems very unusual for a Japanese company to re-hire someone after something like that (look at poor Togasaki, who is obviously ostracised)
    They also signed Goo Hara of KARA after her suicide attempt, who sadly took her own life only shortly after

    they also don't have that many signed artists, somehow they don't seem to be a run of the mill agency
    (btw, Nyan-nyan is no longer listed on the main Production Ogi site, Takamina is, together with Miichan and no3b .... ow ... and fresh lemon :D, that was the info I was looking for)

    I mentioned last month in Kojiharu's post, there was something weird about MAMA & SON and Ogi Pro.

    Kojiharu is from Mama & Son while Takamina and Miichan are from Ogi Pro and Mama & Son.

    The album and the singles are stamped by Epic Records.

    Luckily I have concerts, albums, singles, shows and doramas of no3b :hehe:

    Ogi Pro was one of the most important representatives of AKB48, there was even a Team Ogi concert made up of members of Ogi Pro they even took out a photo book.

    PS: Lemon has been with Ogi Pro for years, even attending the 10-year commemorative concert of no3b.

    not really weird ... M&S is a sub agency of Production Ogi ... Miichan and Takamina are signed by Ogi Pro and Nyan-Nyan seems to have transfered to M&S (it was presented as her and Takamina's agency (as in managing) after all)

    euh ... is that true? I need to check that, I know Miion and Renachi where there, as well as Miki-chan

    it's kinda awesome that they got the president of Production Ogi to do a sketch, and that they managed to sell out a concert after being inactive for so long

    Did they release a DVD or BLURAY of no3b's 10-year anniversary concert?

    Because if he does a concert, later he would put the video of the concert on sale.

    but it's available to watch online
