Aces of AKB48 reunite on Music Station, Oshima Yuko complains about Acchan

1 Mar


On the 28th Feb episode of Music Station, Maeda Atsuko made an appearance to promote her new single “Seventh Chord”, together with guests including AKB48. Oshima Yuko was asked about her interaction with Maeda Atsuko.

Yuko mentioned that both mail each other at times and even made a promise to meetup for a meal, but Acchan never contacted her after that. Acchan explained that she was actually expecting Yuko to set up the date, which prompted Takamina to ask “Is everything okay?”

Afterwards, Yuko added that Acchan had gotten her driving license and had promised let Yuko be her first passenger. But 1.5 years later, the promise was still not fulfilled. Turns out that Acchan hasn’t been driving at all since she can’t even park. The others exclaimed, “That’s scary!!”.

The conversation then turned to Kojima Haruna, who tried to lie about going to a Rolling Stones concert with Acchan, but it turns out that they only bumped into each other and had a good time. When asked whether they left the concert together, Kojiharu laughed and said they went separate ways for dinner since both had different preferences.

Matsui Jurina is also on friendly terms with Acchan, it seems, as she revealed Acchan had invited Jurina to her house and even made her breakfast.

After the program ended, Yuko uploaded the 2-shot on her blog with the caption “Getting prettier by the day~!”.

AKB48 perform Oshima Yuko’s graduation single on Music Station

10 Feb

In this week’s Music Station, there was a poll among foreigners in Akihabara to find out their favourite Japanese artistes. AKB48 came out on top in the female group category. Comments from some foreigners below:

Girl from Indonesia: “I saw AKB48’s song being played in a Pocari Sweat CM in Indonesia..”
Guy from New Zealand: “I like AKB48. We will be watching their theater stage tonight.”
Guy from England: “The girls are really cute…and they wear beautiful costumes on stage.Above all i like their smiles!”
Guy from Venezuela: “Koisuru Fortune Cookie is my favourite song. The lyrics are good …and what’s the name of that center? She’s really beautiful and cute!”

In the talk segment, Oshima Yuko talked about having a meal recently with Takamina, Paruru and Yokoyama Yui. They then performed Oshima Yuko’s last single with the group “Mae Shika Mukanee”.

The song was born after Oshima Yuko conveyed her thoughts to Akimoto Yasushi and features a strong rocker beat and high energy dancing.

In my opinion, even though the song doesn’t have much of an impact visually nor lyrically, one can’t help but notice the Oshima Yuko-style AKB48 that only the girl herself can bring out. Can anyone takeover her place and yet perform something so wild and crazy…? I really can’t think of anyone else.

First perf of Oshima Yuko’s last single “Mae Shika Mukanee”

5 Feb

This is AKB48’s 35th single, and Oshima Yuko’s last song with the group. The song was conceived after a discussion between Yuko and Akimoto Yasushi, and features a fun and positive atmosphere, which is very much like Yuko’s character. The lyrics talk about coolly looking/moving forward instead of worrying about the future.
