    Akimoto's band will sign to Warner?

    Would they be managed by Amuse like Babymetal & ONE OK ROCK? This agency is affiliated to Warner Japan.

    Speaking of which, look what has been trending on Twitter over the past few days:

    Looking at the audition poster for the 1st generation members of that Akimoto-produced girl band, which is here at Harajuku station, I was filled with chagrin and it left me appalled. Why the blurb inviting the girls to join the band must have "For people who want to date a celebrity" or "For people who want to marry an IT CEO"? Do they believe that a woman's dreams and success amount to just receiving men's appraisal and love interest? How infuriating.

    Over 32,000 retweets and 48,000 likes as of writing this (the numbers basically doubled since yesterday), including some coming from familiar faces like, well, his former employees (Tanochan, if I need to name names)

    Guess it's time to file this oh-so-progressive marketing campaign under the looong list of Akimoto's ill-conceived decisions and call the whole operation another commercial failure already... ┐(´ー`)┌
    Poor man has lost his touch and not even the flame-bait marketing he used to be so well known for is helping him anymore, if this is the backlash he's getting.

    Just learned that this is not his first band project.

    He also writes songs for Thinking Dogs, the band whose one of MV stars Yoda Yuki.

    This should give him a proper push in that "best selling lyricist" thingy.

    Wasn't he the top one already?

    Male artists he wrote lyrics for:

    • BTS (a Kpop boygroup, he wrote lyrics for a Japanese single)
    • Thinking Dogs (a rock band probably under his concern too)
    • Jero (an African American with Japanese ancestry, moved to Japan and becomes a singer who mixes enka with hip hop)
    • I believe he wrote lyrics for a band before he became producer & lyricist of Onyanko Club.
    Well, for me AKi-P isn't really a musician, he's a poet more.

    dunno about "the all time best lyricist" and whatnot, but he's definitely been at the top BY FAR in recent years, so I don't think he needs that collaboration as a push or anything, he just does what he finds interesting for him.

    No, but BTS sell like crazy and he wants the money ddd
    If he were interested in collaborating with them, why didn't he put himself forward when they released their other two Japanese albums? Cause they weren't as famous, simple as that.

    ^ hm, it's not like it's Yasusu who "put himself forward" in the first place, it's the BTS agency that made a request for him, as the article says. but of course, nobody argues that their good sales persuade him to take up on the offer. he would probably not waste his time on a noname group that sells 10k copies or something.

    I'm not going to post examples and waste your time, but over on Twitter certain BTS "Army" fans attacking are attacking Akip essentially calling him out for exploiting 46 and 48 girls. They don't want someone like him to be associated with BTS.

    It's the first time in my life I wanted to defend Akip lol

    Actually it's K-Army who attacked Aki-P because they accused him of misogynistic lyrics and, the most serious one, right-wing supporter. Because most of Koreans still have big, deep grudge against Japan (especially with Japanese Invasion in 20th century, WWII, comfort woman), then K-Army don't want BTS to have collaboration with a "right-wing supporter".

    (FYI, this reason also made Produce48 became the lowest popular Produce series compared to others)

    Anyway, if you haven't, you can read the whole tweets here (TRIGGER ALERT)

    And international ARMYs are eating it up lol They're really scared that Aki-P might write something contrary to the 'message' BTS is promoting.

    Bashing Aki-P is one thing, dragging 48G and 46G down is a whole different story.

    He'll probably write something about footprints in the sand and whatnot.

    I don't think he's ever written something too political.
