    Fans approve the return of NMB48’s Shimada Rena and Matsuda Shiori

    [​IMG]

    On December 7th, NMB48 announced at the NMB48 Theater in Osaka that suspended members Shimada Rena and Matsuda Shiori would be allowed to return to the group.

    As reported earlier, the two members expressed that they wanted to come back to NMB48, but were hesitant on making a decision as they thought it would upset fans. Consequently, the agency said that they would be allowed to return if fans voted in their favor.

    The fan voting took place from November 27th to December 3rd, and out of 9,783 votes cast, the majority were in favor of their return with 8,377 votes for Matsuda and 7,622 for Shimada. Now that their return has been confirmed, the girls will jump straight into their lessons in order to resume their activities from January 1st.

    NMB48 will release their third single on February 8th. Details on the track list and senbatsu members will be announced at a later date.

    NMB48’s Shimada Rena chosen as the captain of the
    2nd generation

    by Shiso on January 3, 2012 at 6:18 pm
    [​IMG]
    On January 3rd, it was announced that NMB48 member Shimada Rena (18) was chosen as the captain of the 2nd generation.

    The surprise announcement was made through a letter from Akimoto Yasushi during “the New Year special stage” held at NMB48 theater. Though Shimada couldn’t hide her astonishment from this sudden nomination, she gladly accepted this new role. She stated to the audience, “Since I want to repay my obligations to NMB48, I will try my best“, and received a warm round of applause.

    Back in September of 2011, Shimada suspended her activities after her private sticker pictures leaked, and she just recently returned to the stage on January 1st, 2012.

    It was also announced that they will create “Team M” on January 26th.

    by Sujin on January 31, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    [​IMG]

    Members of idol group NMB48 are gracing the cover of the February issue of ‘Young Magazine‘. The issue went on sale on January 30th, so fans of the group should grab a copy!

    The issue will also have the first serialization of Watanabe Daisuke’s “Hanjyuu“. “Hanjyuu” is about a man named “Shishikura Tetsu“, who lives to get revenge. The story begins with Tetsu surrounded by bad guys, 300,000 yen, some information, and a pistol. Manga fans of suspense and action should give this series a try.
