    I must agree with this. The development of the groups is happening at such a glacial pace that more are leaving than can be replaced with a single generation of KKS, and it's the worst with AKB. We already know how long it's been for D2s not to have been promoted and they're already graduating before they can be. Of course fans will expect an announcement from the guy who always pulls something out his ass to make things interesting. Especially because he so rarely makes appearances like that; usually something's up.

    Personally, I still follow AKB because of the surprises and random factor. I like the drama portion. Without surprise and drama, all AKB would be is a tired theater of old stages full of tired theater girls who never get any recognition and a senbatsu that never changes. That's a valid reason for liking the group - surprise is what the group has thrived on for years, especially its early years if you look back at the history and see all the ways management went out of its way to announce something 'shocking' like shuffles or the election or the draft or honestly, the way they make most announcements - at a concert as a 'surprise' for both members and fans. Surprise and drama keeps things fresh, it's the platform AKB built its fame on, so no need to knock fans for expecting it [hehe]

    I don't go on SHOWROOM very often, and I do not understand how to obtain outfits/avatars etc. My character is still just some kid in his underwear. I just watch, that's it.

    That's the nice thing about deep stuff (like Pokemon), people can scratch the surface of it and feel happy with it, or can delve much deeper to find a much richer community worth exploring. Some people just watch without a login, with the guest account, some collect avatars (just throw some stars or seeds and if the room is offering one you'll automatically get it, click on your avatar next to your comment box to switch to another), some like meeting people (famous or not so much, I met STU48's Kahotaru (#43) and Harukasu (#75) back in November last year way before the audition, some like broadcasting, and others like participating in events and being able to show off their money. There's a little for everyone.

    It was their choice to announce the staff thing, and then Shinobu's choice to tell us there's more going on. (Admittedly she's not exactly known for good choices.) The rest of the stuff has less to do with us knowing about it, and more the fact they should have happened last year and yet still nothing is being done about them as far as anyone can tell.

    If it's going to be AKB related promotion, it's mostly likely SSK.

    Do you have Wikipedia Account ? If yes, come here to Indonesian Wikipedia. You may help me to fill the blanks table and tidy up post in
    * A3 - A7 Stage
    * HG1 and S2 Stage
    * K2, K4, K6 Stage
    * B3 and B5 Stage.

    Actually, I want to move list of member stage from there to the tables to make it have room of page, but I don't dare to do it, so I make the table at first.

    The tables and info will be added for few times.

    -Sorry for bad English-

    That just tells us that AKB is closing doors. That was Aki-P's huge announcement. He just didn't have the guts to tell us.

    Doubt it
    Maybe it's just a banner for something else unrelated to AKB?

    Didn't they have the same one or yeeeeears until the 10th anniversary album?

    -------------

    Anyway, they have a collabo with Lotte Bikkuriman chocolate. http://store.shopping.yahoo.co.jp/mizota/4903333126729-1.html
    AKB48 Bikkuriman East.jpg AKB48 Bikkuriman East member.jpg
    That is the Team East version, there is also Team West version. http://store.shopping.yahoo.co.jp/at-cvs/akbikkuriman.html
    for Team West they haven't say which member that they use for it.

    Will be out on June 6th, 2017.

    Btw, NMB Team B2 will perform on AKB theater on May 3rd and 4th.
    ---------------

    It seems there will be an event with Rakuten where you can vote for a member by buying eligible product on Rakuten and the winning member will get.. something (can't really understand it... a special home page and PR time for 1 year for I assume AKB product?). The voters will have an opportunity to get a (planned) signed poster.
