    Here is a story in Oricon.

    NGT48 , an idol group, announced that it will start a “face recognition system” in October for the introduction of a biometric authentication system that was listed as part of its security measures in July.

     As a background to the introduction of face authentication, “In addition to improving the accuracy of identity verification, for example, face authentication can identify individuals not only from individuals but also from the crowd, so customers can enter and exit the theater. In the NGT48 theater where there is, face recognition can be used to identify whether or not a customer has been accepted. " Furthermore, “We believe that the staff can identify individuals by looking at pre-registered face images, so we can strengthen fraud prevention measures and use them as security measures.”

     We are planning to introduce a face recognition system from the performance at the NGT48 theater in October, “We are considering introducing it at other theaters and concert event venues in the future. We have been discussing carefully since this is the first attempt by the group, so we appreciate your understanding that we will be waiting for some time before the introduction. "

     Prior to the introduction, a dedicated inquiry window will be set up and a pre-registration period will be announced. Not only registration on the web but also registration at NGT48 theater

    Let's hope they use this facial recognition to make sure the wota involved in the incident last year are refused entry to all their events.

    A suspect was arrested for threatening Kato Minami.
    Also the management adresses a warning for future behaviors such as threads, calomnia etc ... even if it happens on social medias

    Why is AKS still trying to hide evidence? What was the point of firing the Direction Board and hiring Masi Oka if they are just going to make the same mistakes over and over again? This is getting more ridiculous

    Some informations about future events:
    There will be no anniversary birthdays live in 2019 at all
    However, they might restart those in 2020, and the management is expecting to restart HS events for the those in january 2020.
    Birthdays shows goods are available for sale at the theater from 09/22 (today)

    It's not about any anniversary live, it's about Seitansai shows and related matters (sale of Seitansai merch, Seitansai banners being allowed at handshake events, that stuff, if anyone cares...)

    What on Earth will it take for someone to actually do something about this scum?

    Murder.
    But seriously, NGT is beyond redemption, and AKS management's constant refusal to do anything right will just make them look bad in years to come.

    Well let's see.

    1) The facial recognition system isn't supposed to go into effect until sometime in October (see: any post about it above, or this post). They're doing facial registration for it right now.
    2) Neither of those two yakkai wota were "involved in the incident". Even if it had been active, why would they have any trouble with it?

    1: I guess you didn't turn on your sarcasm detector.

    2: They're known troublemakers and connected to Inapooh, that should in and of itself be enough to have them banned from any idol event, let alone NGT.

    The problem isn't my sarcasm meter, it's the people responding after you. Why do you think I didn't reply until now?

    I strongly disagree. They should not be punished just because of their associations. If they actually were "known troublemakers" in their own right, sure. But the ban needs to be for a reason, not just because other fans don't like them.

    I was listening to Whatcha Gonna Do, and the lineup literally has everyone involved with the drama. It must have been really awkward doing that music video.
