    Hi! I'm a member of KNS48, and at the moment, we don't have any auditions for new generations planned, but of course you'd have to ask Mattis about that for more info! All the auditions are usually done via youtube, but submitting an extract of your voice to a certain video in the comments section. All of our members are international, so that means you can record in your own style! So even if you have to look at the screen to remember the lyrics it's not a problem! And KNS48 at the moment only does AKB48 songs, but we have sister groups that venture into different J-Pop groups!

    The avatars you see in the teaser are the original faces of our new members. They've selected different facial parts from different 48 Group members and we've photoshopped them together (can be compared to how Eguchi Aimi was created).

    Thanks for your continued support of KNS48!

    KNS48 5th generation auditions have now opened up!! The auditions will be open until May 3, 2017. Good luck to everyone who wants to apply!!



    Welcome to the KNS48's annual new member audition, "KNS48 2017 NEO Audition". This time we are looking for girls who will join KNS48 as 5th generation members.

    ★.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.★

    APPLICATION PERIOD: from April 7, 2017 to May 3, 2017

    ★.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.★

    Welcome to KNS48. We are an online karaoke group focusing on covering songs by the J-pop phenomena AKB48, its Japanese sister groups as well as their rival groups, Nogizaka46 and Keyakizaka46. We're a group of over 30 girls who all love the 48 and Sakamichi Groups. We are now looking for other AKB-loving fans to join us, both experienced fandubbers and other fans who haven't dubbed before. The KNS family is looking to expand with the help of new girls who loves singing and wants to connect with other fans overseas through singing.

    The structure of KNS48 is the same as in the real AKB48. All members are divided into the teams Team K, Team N and Team S. We also have understudies who are aiming to be promoted and become full members of KNS48.

    All successful candidates of this "NEO Audition" will be placed in our understudy team. There you will learn how how our karaoke group works before being promoted.

    We usually divide the songs we cover into singles. These singles follow the same pattern as AKB48's. For every new single, there is a Senbatsu who's in charge of singing the title track. An Undergirls line-up sings the first coupling track. Every now and then, the teams get their own songs. Those are either released seperately or included in the singles.

    The Senbatsu team is always chosen by producer Nakajima Mao, but this year we have plans to choose Senbatsu members through other methods as well.

    All members in KNS48 go by a Japanese full name that they've chosen themselves. We thought it would be fun to do this instead of using our real names or our regular dubbing stage names. This is to give the group a more authentic idol feel.

    All KNS48 members also have their own "idol face" that represents them. This idol face is made up by different parts of real 48-Group members' faces that we photoshop together to create a new and original idol for each member.

    Remember Eguchi Aimi? This is similar to that! If you pass the audition you will receive your very own idol avatar and that will be your representative when in the group.
