    Members do regularly attend what they called a 'voice training' since the beginning of Boku no Natsu ga Hajimaru stage (this stage has always been live singing). I don't know if it's a proper training though.

    I was second guessing if I should watch the performance after all the comments about their singing. But I did it anyway
    I actually quite liked it. I love to see the happy smiles of the girls. They seem to be really enjoying the performance

    The 48 CIRLCE site opened a Twitter account:
    @48_CIRCLE

    They also somewhat revived the site, with 2 articles recently.
    I say revived, because a few weeks ago (around end of february), I was facing an error 404 when trying to log in.

    Well money isn't flowing as much as before, so management has to spend it wisely.

    I'd guess because some members, especially when hyped up, pronounce it that way. After all /ti/ in standard Japanese is pronounced "chi", hence the need to write the English /ti/ as ティ.

    Two resale rounds for the 'Shitsuren, Arigato' online talks on 4/28-30 have been announced:
    https://akb.kingrecords.co.jp/info/003601.html

    Almost all slots for all members have tickets available but as always with resale rounds some of them may be in very short supply.

    Also today I received via my forwarder in Japan a bag which I got as a bonus item for buying tickets for the talks on 3/13:

    I know I posted otherwise not too long ago, but just in case you didn't know – Team Stages' albums and Team Surprise singles are back on Spotify!

    EDIT: Only some albums are back. I can see most Team Surprise albums. As for Stage albums, these are back so far:
    • Team A 1-4
    • Team K 1-3
    • Team B 1+2
    • Himawarigumi 1
    This means the following albums are still missing:
    • Team A 5+6
    • Team K 4-6
    • Team B 3-5
    • Team 4 1
    • Himawarigumi 2

    I feel like giving up on hoping for a new single. Like Shitsuren, Arigato came out over a year ago and they still doing resale rounds. I need new music!

    I reaaaally hope they announce something big at Miichan's graduation concert. I want them to milk the crap out of that concert, throw in all the random graduate appearances, maybe announce a team shuffle – I kind of even expect team dissolution since NMB, STU and NGT don't use teams anymore either (also some kind of revamp is planned for SKE after Jurina's graduation). And pleaaaase a new single.

    Personally I think Zukkii did well as the centre for Shitsuren Arigatou. This is subjective and just my preference, but I would rather have her as the future centre than Yuiyui. I still like Yuiyui, but I think Zukkii and Naachan have a better relationship, and I want someone in the centre who has popular friends. I like the idea of YuuNaa as parents and Zukkii as the child.

    Maybe I just don't know enough about Yuiyui but is she particularly close to anyone? I can't imagine the Yuiyui vs Hitomi narrative I see being pushed on twitter (mostly as a joke).

    What I think we need is a fairly fixed centre (not as intense as Acchan or Jurina, but still to some degree), and one or two people backing that centre. I think we have that in the YuuNaaZukkii trio.

    I think (and hope and pray) that they will announce a new single at Tandoku Concert... maybe some solo work for Miichan in the music industry?

    When I first saw that clip I was kinda confused as it's one of the foremost temples in Japan and somehow I don't see a rock concert happening on the steps of St Peter's Basilica on St Peters' square in Vatican City to be honest :)
    (especially not by girls in miniskirts :D)

    Never got to know if it was because AKB was getting just that huge back then, or that Buddhists are intrinsically just more relaxed about these kind of things (or at least Japanese Buddhists)

    Today Yukirin uploaded this video to her Youtube channel where she recommends AKB's "hidden masterpieces". I thought it would be good to share this here since it's related to AKB and their discography, the video is fun to watch ^^ I really love all her choices and I hope more people will listen to the songs that she mentioned <3



    Yukirin's choices:

    - Green Flash
    - Darashinai Aishikata

    - Temodemo no Namida
    - Tsuki to Mizukagami
    - Kioku no Dilemma
    - Senaka Kara Dakishimete

    I really love all these songs <3

    This made me want to do my own list as well, but my list is much longer LOL and it's just for album/singles b-sides (didn't go through theater songs, but there's some Team Surprise) <3

    My favorite b-sides (in alphabetical order)

    - Boku Dake no Value
    - Darashinai Aishikata
    - Downtown Hotel 100gou Shitsu
