    In one way it was nice and thanks to AKA for the linkage but it really did strike me how much AKB now looks like an AKB covers group.

    there's Sustainble and other recent singles. but i agree with Reveen, they're becoming their own cover group.

    Many of these shows are for older people, so they just send the classics (this one celebrated JASRAC's 80th anniversary). When they go to Msta they don't sing Heavy Rotation or KFC.

    Those are their three biggest hits, why would they pick anything else. Like it or not none of AKB's recent songs have had anything close to the same level of penetration into the culture. (I don't like it, but I also don't like most of their recent A-sides either so...)

    I've just found an article dated last Friday from the Manchester Evening News here in the UK which mentions AKB48! Sadly it's not announcing a concert in the city (although at least it's not the millionth UK press rehash of Miichan's shaved head incident) but the group is being compared to the Pussycat Dolls when it comes to record sales:

    The AKB48 Group will perform with Ninagawa Mika at the Tokyo Girls Collection, on February 29th.

    A total of 15 members will be selected by five SHOWROOM events, with the top three of each event winning their ticket. The events will separate them by age, which will make it fair for the youngest members.

    But less fair for the 20+ AKB48 members, who will all be super busy with the practice for and performing of the anniversary and final team zenkoku concerts. >(

    See? It's not a show for old people, they're not a cover group of themselves: they sing Sustainable.

    2020 lucky bags - or at least a differently named replacement of them - have been announced.
    https://shopping.akb48-group.com/lp/newyeargoods2020/

    Only NMB still has an actual lucky bag with the possibility of either delivery or picking it up in person. Other groups have "new year goods" instead of a lucky bag (or in case of NMB, they have both). These are only available with delivery and in 8000 yen versions (before, they did them in 3 differently priced versions). Items are different depending on the group but most of them don't include photos like they used to which I am really disappointed by. Also AKB's goods in particular are really ugly in my opinion - what's up with the cheese-like towel? That designer should be fired. But most people get these for the benefits anyways which still exist, which some differences depending on the group. But I'll admit some of the benefits like a yearly free pass for a standing space at the theater (still need to pay for ticket price on top of it but can see any stage without lottery), up to 48 100/100 or 100/98 benefits, etc. are really tempting despite the ugly goods :^^;:

    All of AKB's goods have that cheese theme going on, except the calendars and that last item. What is up with that? Like, most of 2020 will be the year the Rat, is that the reason?

    Nope. Well, I'm getting closer to that second one with each passing day. But I'm more of a 3D than a DD [hehe]
