    As outsider im feel pessimistic after the news of her apologize, like this japan afteral, thing wont get anywhere when the right of individual is less worthy than group/corporate interest. But kudos to public reaction which seems also cant accept it as well. ppl should keep pressuring those organisation by voicing their support. Thing may not bring any significant cultural revolution but at least one can hope its just doesnt end up as damage control gimmick

    Based on 'The management is still working on finding out what happen' from the translation,
    I think we can expect an update or more follow-up statement from the management about this incident.

    I want to believe that things will turn out alright as Cristafari said but the AKS statement feels like they're trying to gaslight Maho and the fans, saying that some guy approached a member on the street and inadvertently gave away the information...that's such blatant attempt at trying to protect the member that doxxed Maho and allegedly sent these guys after her. Maho said at least one of them came out of a members room living opposite her.

    I know people don't want to rush to judgement since everyone initially went after Nakai and it turns out that it's unlikely to be her. But Nishigata has to be the chief suspect now right?

    The culprit was Uemura Asuza, I stand by my comment.
    She disappeared and withdrew very hastily from the AKB48 group. I think she must plan something big and nasty to destroy the whole friendly and compatible atmosphere of this idol group. I am so angry now.

    As part of what Maho said has been officially confirmed, I now (have a basis to) believe that all she said was true. So I think management just wants to sacrifice 1 member instead of all those leaked info. They just made it sounds like she carelessly leaked the info instead of intentionally did that.
    Moreover, what Maho said is far more reasonable than what staff said.
    If Tano or Nishigata turns out to be that "one member", we have the right to suspect other is also involved.

    Whichever the member is, I just want them (whether it's one member or two) to resign, I don't want anything else physical or mental to happen to them.

    I am very disturbed by how the AKS statement differs from Maho's tweet.

    AKS statement seems to suggest that it was an innocent leak of 'enough' information from a member to the fans that led to the fans being able to deduce more information to carry out their attack. (See page 46 of this thread)

    Whereas, from Maho's tweet, it suggest that there was a malicious intent by the members to have her be attacked. (See Page 24 of this thread)

    But seriously, why do one (or some) of the NGT48 members want to attack Mahohon?
    What was the purpose, what was the reason? Mahohon is not one of the most pushed members by the staff either. If she happened to center literally every single song like Tecchi, it would be at least a reason for the members to be jealous at her.

    It's only speculation but what I read between the lines of her tweets is that she found out they were dating fans and confronted them over it. The aim of the attack would be to intimidate and silence her, or hurt her enough to make her retire, because they felt their career was threatened and that she had something over them.

    It's because Maho is a serious girl working in line with all the rules. Obviously someone who doesnt follow the rules and has to deal with her on a regular basis would maybe attack her.

    In a way, I'm glad that Maho apologized. I believe it's a deal. I believe the management promised her a good deal that she could still be in the group in same condition as that she had been or even better, or she might not have taken it.

    This likely is very reason why the management has kept culprit members secret, not to protect the members but to protect the fantasy idol image. They might plan to keep everything behind the closed door, to make the culprits graduate quietly and that's it.

    Actually, the victim is often not reliable. The memory of the victim tends to be distorted. Human's memory in general is easily distorted.

    Is it? Should we turn blind to domestic violence? If this is mere the case of members slap/catfight behind the scene, the agency may sweep it under rugs all it wants.

    What is the use to unveil everything?
    1) To console Maho the victim that the justice is served, don't lose hope in justice and humanity.
    2) To warn all current and future members that this level of action won't be tolerated and will be punished severely.
    3) To assure all members and their parents that the agency care for their safety, see them as humans, not just products.

    I remember Johnny's had quite a terrible scandal, even worse than Maho's case. What happened to the agency after the scandal? How is it now?

    Also, isn't the one wielding the power at Johnny's now a woman?

    Sorry but, I can't see Akimoto hold any responsibility for this.

    Remember that Etsuro was hired by AKS thanks to Akimoto's recommendation.

    I see that another translation of it had been circulating on Twitter already in the meantime, but I think I might as well post my own translation of the statement from AKS, for good measure:

    https://ngt48.jp/news/detail/100003058

    Statement regarding the series of disturbances which affected Yamaguchi Maho
    2019.01.10

    Thank you for your constant support to NGT48

    This time, we want to offer our sincerest apologies for the series of disturbances concerning Yamaguchi Maho, and causing worries on everyone.

    First of all, we want to provide informations about the physical assault incident in which Yamaguchi Maho was harmed.
    Last December, two men claiming themselves to be fans were arrested on charges of barging inside the main entrance of Yamaguchi Maho's apartment, physically assaulting her such as by forcibly grabbing her face down with their hands. The Niigata Police Department has been investigating on this case, and additionally, for approximately one month, the manager of the NGT48 theater Imamura also collaborated as much as possible with the Department itself.
    Furthermore, while not being a direct perpretrator, another fan who was involved in this crime was also identified by the management.

    Moreover, regarding the involvement of members, one member has been identified as having been accosted by a man while on the street and, although she didn't know where Yamaguchi Maho's home was, she informed them of what time Yamaguchi would return back to her home, which would have allowed them to infer the location.
    As the management, we ourselves will continue to investigate relentlessly on this case.
    Additionally, measures will be taken so that the three men will be forbidden from entering theater shows, handshake events, and any other such events ever again.

    As it can be easily imagined, Yamaguchi Maho herself suffered a psychological trauma from being victim of today's incident. The fact that, like it happened in today's case, Yamaguchi Maho herself publicly revealed it in such a way is a result of our lack of proper response and explanations toward her and her own fans. To prevent more cases from developing this way, from then on, we'll be strengthening our measures by providing personal alarms to all the members and making patrol visits of each personal home, thus taking preventive measures to avoid the recurrence of such incidents. Along with that, the whole staff will work with all their strenght, with the intention to build a relationship of mutual trust with the members, providing psychological care for all the members, beginning of course with Yamaguchi Maho.

    To all fans and all the related personnel, we deeply apologize for the great discomfort and troubles caused to you with this.

    AKS Co. Ltd.
