    Btw, correction for my previous post, that actress is not called Yashida Miyuha but Hayashida Miyu LOL I don't even know how I came up with that wrong name, no wonder I couldn't find informations about her XD Anyway it's nice to see all the photos, I think Acchan had a lot of fun when working on this drama especially since it's a role about being a mom!

    There's a movie trailer for Confidence Man JP Princess Hen! Acchan is at around 0:50!



    Shorter version of the trailer:



    This looks like a fun movie! I still need to see the drama and first movie from last year. I like Nagasawa Masami too (she's lead) so this should be nice to watch! I'm glad that Acchan got a role in this (even little) since it seems like it's a successful series with already 2 movies! Btw I found these old photos of Acchan that are apparently from Confidence Man JP drama, I wonder how her role went from this to how she looks like in the new movie trailer with all that colorful hair and clothes XD is it even the same role LOL I guess I will find out eventually!

    001.jpg 002.jpg 003.jpg

    She looked so cute with this short hair <3 There's a gif here!

    Oh this is great, I absolutely adore Nagasawa Masami. Acchan previously appeared with her VERY briefly in Before We Vanish, which I watched not knowing Acchan was in it - so that was a nice surprise!

    I watched Before We Vanish too! I actually really liked that movie, it was unique. yes Acchan only had one scene LOL I still remember it well, it left an impact on me somehow (well I also watched it for her LOL but I end up enjoying the movie). Actually Acchan also acted with Nagasawa Masami on another movie in 2019, Masquerade Hotel. The movie is subbed so you can watch it if you want ;D I watched it not long ago and I wrote about it here in the previous page, I really enjoyed this movie too. I really like Nagasawa Masami too, it's great to know that Acchan was in the same project as her for 3 times now! Although I still never saw Confidence Man JP drama or movies so I don't know if they're actually in the same scenes XD but yes, I love that they're in the same projects!



    Some little updates!

    I searched about the show "Chico-chan ni Shikarareru!" where Acchan was guest back in 14th February. There was a preview on the official Twitter and I found the full show here! Acchan looks so pretty with her hairstyle like this and her outfit! Her smile is adorable as always <3 You can find a lot of gifs from the show here, and this one is my favorite! Some screenshots:

    002.jpg 003.jpg

    PRETTY :cute:

    Also, last year Acchan did a commercial for Nagareyama Ootakanomori Station, the one where she was singing a little song (you can watch it here) and recently, someone posted a photo, it's a subway train where Acchan's photos for this commercial are everywhere! LOL there's so much Acchan, this is great :^O^:[hehe]

    Acchan photos from the instagrams of jusglitty and arpege! I think these are brand of clothes. These are some of the same photos that were in Acchan's photoshoot for andGIRL that was posted before in this thread, these are without text etc. She looks so classy and beautiful in all these outfits! I think my favorites are the 4th, 6th and 10th ones, but I love them all! ;w;

    Some time ago on 21 March, Acchan was on the show "Ariyoshi no Okane Hakken Totsugeki! Kaneo-kun". You can watch her cuts here: Part 01 - Part 02. She talked a bit about her baby, how she balanced work with being a mom, I think she also said that she does kick-boxing with her husband? Then they brought some squeeze toys that look like food, and Acchan played with it along with other guests. and at the end they asked a question, I don't know what was the question but Acchan got the right answer LOL

    Acchan will appear on a show called "Tamashii no Takibi" that will air on 3rd April. NHK posted a video preview of the show here and some photos. it looks like it will be a talk show that is around an open fire at night, it looks comfortable and relaxing like that with the 3 of them LOL Acchan looks so pretty <3 I'm glad that she still goes to Tv shows often! The photos:

    Great news for Acchan! it was announced last month, Acchan has a new role in a movie! She will be in the movie "Caution, Hazardous Wife" (Okusama wa, Tori Atsukai Chui). This will be released on 5th June 2020, and it's a movie that follows a drama that aired in 2017. The cast has Ayase Haruka and Nishijima Hidetoshi. Nice! Here's a little explanation for the movie:

    "The movie continues the story of TV version: while the female agent Isayama Nami (Ayase Haruka) came back to her home, her police husband Isayama Yuki (Nishijima Hidetoshi) was pointing a gun at her. After half year, Isayama couple have a new life in a new city. Isayama Nami loses her memory, and Maeda Atsuko plays her psychology counselor."

    The news of Acchan being in the movie was in japanese morning news, you can watch here. it shows a bit the scene with Acchan, and Acchan giving a comment about being in the movie. She said that it was very nice, and she did the scene with Ayase Haruka. I look forward to this, I like Ayase Haruka too, it's so nice that Acchan acts with so many known actresses <3

    There is a promo photo for the movie, Acchan looks really pretty:

    001.jpg 002.jpg

    Here's the trailer of the movie, you can see Acchan around 0:18!

    Some updates: Because of the current situation and the lockdown, it was announced that, among other movies, the release of Confidence Man JP Princess Hen is postponed. I guess that once everything goes back to normal, they are going to announce a new release date for the movie.

    in other news, this time a very good news! Acchan has been nominated in the category of Best Actress for the japanese Drama Academy Awards for her role as Mei in Legendary Mother! Hopefully she can win it, but there is a lot of competition. I'm just happy that she is recognized and nominated!

    Speaking of Legendary Mom, here are some screenshots of the drama! You can find more photos and gifs here.

    002.jpg 003.jpg 004.jpg 005.jpg 006.jpg 007.jpg 008.jpg 010.jpg

    She looks so cute! I really love her smile in the last photos <3 also I really like this moment here in this gif. I like how her hair is moving with the wind, it's pretty! She looks beautiful. <3

    Fat chance. The show is utterly retarded (in a good way), but that means not much acting for... well, any of them. =/

    Some updates related to Acchan!

    Around 15th-17th April, in her IG stories, Takamina posted old photos with Acchan!
    it's so nice seeing Atsumina photos and the fact that Takamina posted it, so cute <3

    001.jpg 002.jpg

    Back in February, Miichan tweet to say that she talked on the phone with Acchan :3
    She said that without realizing, they talked for 2 hours 30 minutes, and that it was nostalgic and fun!

    During her Showroom in February, NMB's Mirurun did a cover of Kimi wa Boku da! Watch it here!
    it's cute, she sounds nice! She said that she loves the song. Lots of 48G members love this song ^^/

    in her Showroom a few days ago, Yukirin did an imitation of singing voices, including Acchan! Here!
    She imitated Acchan singing Flower, I think the rhythm of singing is similar, but not the voice LOL XD
    But she did a good job at some of the other imitations though haha Acchan is maybe more difficult!

    At her solo concert in January, AKB's Yuiyui performed Lucky Seven and talked about Acchan!
    She said that she performed the song because she likes it and she likes Acchan's outfit (that she's wearing)
    She said something like she will do her best with Acchan's warmth and power! That's so sweet aw <3

    003.jpg

    it's great to see Acchan still mentioned by AKB or 48G's current and past members and being a role model!

    So much love for Acchan <3

    Little throwback to the past! From Kojiharu's first photobook "Kojiharu" released in 2013, the message that Kojiharu wrote for Acchan, I saw this online and I translated it in english! it's really cute and it makes me feel nostalgic. it's funny that Kojiharu was a little shy when talking with Acchan, even though Kojiharu is older LOL So cute, NyanAtsu <3

    001.jpg

    "♥ Maeda Atsuko
    From the very beginning, I noticed Acchan's cuteness。 So I keep thinking to myself 「She's cute ♡」。 Acchan liked me too, so "NyanAtsu" have mutual affection。 However, when I talk to Acchan, I do get a little nervous (laugh)"


    More appreciation for Acchan, this time it's more recent and it's from Nogizaka46 members! if you remember, in Nogi, there's already Hori Miona who is a fan of Acchan! in the past, she said that she loves all of Acchan's solo songs (like me ;D). Now there's more:

    From one of the popular 3rd gen Nogi members Yoda Yuuki, in an interview, she was asked about her life when she was little and if she wanted to be an idol back then. She answered and I translated the part that is about Acchan!

    002.jpg

    "Yoda: (...) When I was in junior high school, AKB48 was very popular, I also liked to watch them on television and listen to them, I thought that Maeda Atsuko-san is cute and wonderful。"

    Recently, a new 4th gen member of Nogi called Hayashi Runa talked about being a fan of Acchan. This one is quite funny, she said that she imitated Acchan's hairtsyles haha. I didn't know this member so I searched her name, and seeing her current hairstyle, it's also quite similar to Acchan's signature hairstyle back in AKB hehe

    949.jpg

    "When I was in elementary school, I liked Maeda Atsuko-san, and when Maeda-san cut her hair, I would cut my hair too。"


    Like I said in the previous post, it's so nice to see Acchan being loved and appreciated by current and past members of 48 and 46 groups, even until now, there are members who join these groups and who are fans of Acchan, and she might be one of the reason they decided to become idols too. As expected Acchan will always be one of the most memorable idols of Japan <3

    I don't understand why I'm being credited with that previous post. I wish I could take credit for it because it's a wonderful posting, but it's not mine. I don't know why my name is attached to it, but I would like to respond to it. I hope that's okay.
    I simply cannot imagine AKB48 being what it is today without Maeda Atsuko being named as center 15 long years ago. Aki-p absolutely knew what he had in Acchan even at her young age and he sensed the stunning charismatic superstar that she would become.
