    It'd kinda defeat the purpose of the name, too: no3b.

    ^ I thought "No3b" was just a stylized abbreviation of their unit name pronounced in Japanese, "no suriibu", where "surii" is the Japanese pronunciation of the number 3. Never really thought of the 3 corresponding to the number of girls in the unit. *hides*

    ^But the girls always pronounced it as "no-suri-busu"(ノースリーブス), where "busu"(ブス) means "normal/ugly girl", right?

    Dani: We'd definately know if they were recording another season.. they'd be missing from stuff like crazy. It's just a daydream for now.

    I don't think they'll add anyone to no3b but if they were ever going to, it would definately be an Ogi girl.

    Nattsumi would fit in with their image well :)

    No new members. I think I wouldn't like no3b like right now.

    @flagator: It's always good to have hope :).

    I'd like a second season :p I'm sure it'll be really successful, with AKB gaining more and more popularity! [rock] <3

    They're probably hinting the producers right now [hehe]

    I wouldn't want another member added in though :/ NO3B is fine as it is. Or.. NO3B is GREAT as it is.

    I dunno if they left much room to do another season, plot-wise, but you never know.

    ^ I don't think they knew either, but the way S1 ended left them with enough leeway for a second season if needed.

    On an unrelated note, I never expected no3b to be THIS popular. To me, they're not an "AKB48 subgroup" anymore, but a group all on their own. :)

    I highly doubt Aki-P would ever add another member to no3b unless she happens to get singed by ogipro. The current AKB48 sub-groups weren't created because Aki-P felt that those members were such an exceptional talent that they deserved their own groups. These groups were created only after their individual agencies worked with (paid) Aki-P to create them. Being in a sub-group only helps to increase their girls visibility and popularity within AKB48. Now their individual agencies have greatly benefited by charging higher fees for any work they get their girls outside of AKB48.

    A season 2 will greatly benefit them in fanbase wise, judging by how many of us are lured into akb because of them.

    The concept of no3b is probably haruna being girlish, miichan being adorable and takamina being cool. Their voices match in nicely so it's already a really awesome group, no need any more additions.

    (unless they're trying to pull another jurina into akb stunt, they'll probably add in some underrated member to boost her popularity, which is kind of impossible for now. )

    And i think we're kinda off topic [hehe] Shouldn't there be a NO3B thread somewhere?! :D :D

    Haruna, Takamina, and Miichan are all scheduled to be absent from all the stage performances in the latter part of the month. Hmmm.... I wonder what that could mean, don`t you?

    Hate to possibly burst your bubble here, but there's also the (rather large?) possibility of them going out to promote 'Lie'..

    YES!!!!!!!!! Another drama!!!!!!!!!! :omfg: I can't wait!

    But...if google translator translated the staff blog properly(ish) ( http://blog.oricon.co.jp/z-mex/archive/117/0 ) and they start filming in June when A6 opens....does that mean there will be a repeat of when A5 first opened?? Cause that would suck majorly. I WANT A FULL NEW TEAM A SHONICHI!!

    And whoever gets picked are freaking lucky!!

    A cell phone drama? I feel like they deserve better than that.
