    The UK free newspaper Metro has the story (sourced from Billboard Japan) on its website:

    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.

    Skimming through the aforementioned tweets made me sick.
    SJW-ism meets k-pop zealotry. What a combination.

    People are so easily manipulated. They dont even realize how deeply involved in tribalism and group-think they are.

    The power of (K-)Army :fear:

    Then RIP BTS in Japan. Once 5ch users know the news, they will bash not only BTS, but also the fandom itself

    See, the whole problem with Akimoto's constant and near-pathological reliance on flame-bait marketing (from bullshit like Minegishi's shaving, to the occasional chancy/shocking lyrics, to greelighting counterproductive and edgy farces like what we have seen today with Nakai's push or pretty much the entirety of Keyakizaka's creative direction -- it's always the same shit) is exactly this: that apart from the quick and cheap grab for attention he thirsts for, and which lasts just a few days before waning away, what we are left with, collectively speaking, are stigmas that will instead persist for years and will regularly come back to bite your ass when you least want it.
    Is this worth it?

    Little side note: the allegation of right-wing nationalism are hilarious, when you look at the precedents. I actually miss the times when 2ch (especially the fun folks at the Morningcoffee board) used to call Akimoto a country traitor during the early Korean boom of 2010-11 because of all the inside connections he had with Dentsu (which was infiltrated by zainichis on all levels, at least according to their ~theories~), for one thing...

    Even more hilarious to me is the fact that I am seeing Bokutachi wa Tatakawanai, of all things, be mischaracterized as a ~problematic~ song promoting ~Japanese imperialism~, considering that back in the day the fucking Communist Party of Japan (!) even published an article on its official newspaper praising it for the anti-war message and going as far as to use it as a pretext to put the lyrics in opposition to Abe's administration policies (whatever they are).
    To top it off, later at the edition of the Words of the Year award that U-Can held on the same year, the song was played during the presentation of one of the winning slogans, "We won't tolerate Abe's politics", the reason being in fact how strong the anti-war message was within it and how reminiscent it was of the slogan's meaning.

    If I were an outside partner, I'd rather stop thinking about politics and ~misogyny~ and be more worried about letting my business (and my own assets) be handled by a guy who in the past has doomed the Sega Dreamcast to commercial failure with his "creative" launch campaign, just to name an example of his unwise marketing directions, if anything.

    Seriously? I got no problem with BTS, but their fandom is a fucking joke (They have become worse then the Beliebers which is saying something).

    Aki-p: Well shieeet didn't know Korea was a left wing country LOL But how come no one said anything when I came up with Produce48??

    Me: Cheer up mate, I'm sure at least you can give that song to one of the 48G now

    Aki-p: You are right, Imma give it to Yoshimotozaka46 for the lulz

    Me: Fxxk me!!
