Discussion in 'AKB48 News & Releases' started by ForrestFuller, Dec 27, 2017.
Kouhaku is normally on New Year's eve so on December 31st.
Kouhaku is the NHK New Year's Eve show, so the date is 12/31.
If you had clicked on the link you would have seen that it was on the NHK website.
It is shown on local television (on tape delay) where I live. If you have any local Japanese tv channels, check their schedules.
A lot Japanese & korean websites don’t load on my computer that’s why I didn’t bother to try.
@babadook thank you
Cant wait to finally see DEL48
On a side note, I’d love if WRD48 became more of a thing, with an actual single with MVs
Yes, with the members/center rotating each year.
I just stumbled upon an Indeed listing from YKBK look for a manager for DEL48, posted yesterday. If anybody out there meets the requirements and wants to give it a shot, good luck.
Remember when they did a “world senbatsu” version of KFC on nhk world? The TPE members weren’t officially members of the group yet, they were still considered candidates at the time. And they didn’t have any lines in the song I think.
So that could be what they’re going to do with DEL48
I just rewatched the Songs of Tokyo where they appeared. When Yuihan introduced the TPE48 (what they were back then) members, she said they were candidates who were auditioning. However, they did sing along in the KFC performance.
Seeing as international sister group representatives are getting announced, DEL48 should be having one too.
Wonder if it’ll be a full blown member, or an AKB48 Kaigai who’ll be in DEL48
This is wonderful news! I'm so happy to hear this! 8 members per group I read I think.
No, it's just one per group.
Thank you for the correction!
Small updates, small progress. On Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, the official accounts have changed their header image to a more generic one (the previous image advertised the audition). We can also assume the girl(s) have flown out, as all of the other international girls have, and choreographer Takeshi Kise has posted on his Instagram story about flying out from Delhi to Japan yesterday (I forgot to take screencaps of his Instagram Story yesterday so you will just have to take my word on this).
@babadook Let me help you out with that!
A Fan Page for DEL48 did capture the caption and image used on the IG Story!
《 WELCOME DEL48 TO JAPAN! 》
ขณะนี้สมาชิก DEL48 (เดลี48 - ประเทศอินเดีย) อยู่ในระหว่างการเดินจากสนามบิน 'Delhi Airport' มาถึงยังประเทศญิ่ปุ่นเป็นที่เรียบร้อยแล้ว
! ! ! แล้วพบกัน ! ! !
Spoiler: Google English Translation
《 WELCOME DEL48 TO JAPAN! 》
Now, members members (Delhi 48-India) are in the middle of a walk from the airport 'Delhi airport' to the country.
Prepare to see your first debut in
⚪ "the 70th nhk kohaku uta-Uta" ⚪
! ! See you! !
That was not the image from the story. The story was just of Takeshi Kise in an airport and the caption was something like "Delhi -> Japan". I have no clue where the image posted by DEL48 Thailand Fanclub came from, I assumed they made it themselves.
I also noticed staff member Ayumi Inui was responding to Facebook comments on her posts about DEL48, some even in English. I asked her if she is allowed to tell us any information about how many members will be present (I am assuming one but some things have implied multiple). She has yet to respond and I will update you all if she does.
I think she said 1.
Say hello to the first DEL48 girl (Glory).
Glory is her name?
@ForrestFuller Her name or her stage name?
