    I'm actually quite annoyed about this since I'll be in Tokyo on those dates... :\
    I hope no-one I like a lot is going to go, and they don't take enough girls that the theatre will be closed or something like that.

    I guess he's trying to sell the concept to other countries? I can't imagine it working anywhere other than Japan...

    ^ Akimoto must want to convert the whole word into wotas. :XD:
    That's going to be scary!! But yeah, I don't really see where else it works... since AKB48 is directed toward girl loving Otakus and I don't think you'll find much anywhere else outside of Japan's culture. I could be wrong though.

    I love how they announced information on Cannes way faster than NYAF. Freakin America, always so slow! haha. :^^;:

    I was waiting for this thread. ^^ So there really seems not to have a public concert... I don't see the point of it. Conquering the professional world with exposing the concept of AKB is one thing but they also should make a public concert to be more efficient. Maybe they consider France is already lucky with JE.

    I agree with that. In Western countries, people would be... shocked (I guess).

    Yes, I think too, this concept is only for japan. Because it's the cultur of Idol and wota. It's not the same for western country so it's not a good idea from Aki.

    There was already a whole thread in the General AKB48 Discussion about whether AKB48 would be able to prosper overseas, so there's no point discussing it here.

    That is an interesting reason for them to go to Mipcom though, I was always wondering why the hell AKB48 was going to a business conference with no connection to Japan. I definitely can't see too many professional businessmen liking the songs they'll hear. Even among those interested in Japanese music (and it's not even all otaku), AKB48 is quite a unique taste.

    I want a transcript of AkiP's speech though, cuz I want to see what he has to say. If any of this results in more attention paid to overseas fans (like, hire partially speaking English staff in the theater!), it's all good. [cool]

    Maybe not.
    Maybe he wants AKB48 to have foreign members, like Linlin and Junjun in Morning Musume.

    Since the Music Japan shooting for RIVER is on 10/5, the members going to this are probably not front ones.

    If they did that, finally they'd have 12 year olds that look older than Jurina [rofl] In all seriousness though, that probably would not work.

    Huh, that's interesting, I never thought of that. I wonder who will go...for even if they announce who goes, seeing as it's not a major event, at least to fans. I think a lot are more interested in what AkiP has to say.

    Sayaka is only half-Japanese and she seems to be doing pretty well.

    I had totally forgotten about this...

    From the scheduling I've seen, it looks like anyone on Team A could be going, along with Kasai, Asuka, and Kana from K, and probably Aika, Yuki, Sasshi, Moeno, and Mayu of Team B.

    Yes, I saw that too.

    Another thing I can tell thanks to sekaru is that 50 fans will be able to go to the concert of tomorrow evening 'cause 50 tickets were to win on a website. So it's not completely reserved to professionals... She'll certainly give more details here. ^^

    I've just read it on a website, I don't know more about it sorry.
    I hope the girls will have a good concert and that the audience will be... well, I don't know... welcoming and not just dwell on with a moralizing opinion or whatsoever.
