Watanabe Miyuki talks about Sayanee and her hopes for a new NMB48

2 Jul

NMB48 Watanabe Miyuki talked about her wishes for a new NMB during a radio show on 21st June 2016.

Her new NMB48
“It’s difficult to imagine a new 2-top consisting Sayachan and someone. It’s better to create a new NMB,” she said. “On the contrary, it’s pitiful for Sayanee to continue as center. Sayachan is known for being the captain….it’d be better balanced if others were the double centers and Sayanee is in 2nd line center, like she’s supporting them.”

Her ideal formation
“If i think about all the members, Nagichan(Shibuya Nagisa) and Mirurun(Shiroma Miru) for double centers. Center for 2nd line would be Sayanee. On her side – Ririka(Sutou Ririka, Fuuchan(Yagura Fuuko). Riripon and Juri are good too.”

On Sayanee
On a previous occasion, Sayanee mentioned that they were formidable when standing next to each other, showing her utmost trust. In return, Watanabe said that Sayanee was the person she was destined to meet in her life.

On that, Milky said “That speech is true, but what i don’t want people to get confused about – SayaMiru are not dating(laugh), it wouldn’t be right if we are taken to be good friends. However, good or bad, we greatly influence each other in many ways. In that sense, i said we’re destined to meet.”

“I too think that i’m here because of Sayachan. If she weren’t around i would be living an entirely different life. It’s surreal.”


In related news, Milky’s graduation concert will be held on 3rd & 4th July 2016 at Kobe World Memorial Hall. NicoNico will stream her concert from 6pm Japan Time on 3rd July 2016.

Listen to AKB48 theme song for NHK morning drama “Asa ga Kita”

20 Sep

The song titled “365nichi no Kami Hikouki” was aired in AKB48 Show and this should be the version Tamaki Hiroshi/Haru heard and commented on in my previous article.

During the press conference, Takahishi Minami said “There was the problem of her being a Kari Neko(refers to someone who acts more tamely when outside their typical home) when she was in AKB48 senbatsu,she couldn’t show herself.Since she’s a center now she should graduate from being one, will you?”

Yamamoto replied, “…Yes!”

Watanabe Mayu commented “Those who haven’t heard Sayanee’s voice probably won’t realise AKB48’s existence. Her voice is one level above AKB?”

AKB48 theme song for NHK drama “Asa ga Kita” is a folk rock

2 Sep

Following yesterday’s article, it was announced that NHK’s morning drama “Asa ga Kita” theme song “365nichi no Kami Hikouki” will be a folk rock song with NMB48 Yamamoto Sayaka singing the opening line.

The song was unveiled at a press event yesterday with the drama’s lead actor Tamaki Hiroshi(35) and actress Haru(24) in attendance. They could not hide their surprise at the different style of this song.

Haru: This is perfect. The opening and illustrations are very cute and compatible. AKB’s song feels very good.
Tamaki Hiroshi: This is different from the usual AKB songs.It’s calm and suitable for the mornings.”

The drama talks about the daughter of a rich family in Kyoto who marries a businessman and tries to revive her family business.

With regards to AKB members being casted in this drama, executive producer Sano Motohiko said “The script is still being written.I’d ask them to appear if they fit.”

However, filming for episodes airing this year has been completed so even if the members were to appear, the earliest would be next year.


I am quite sure that this song won’t be the next single then cos AkiP mentioned in ANN recently he’s looking for a orthodox idol song next.

NMB48 Yamamoto Sayaka set to appear in NHK’s morning drama next year?

1 Sep

NMB48’s Yamamoto Sayaka was chosen to be the center for theme song of next year’s NHK Morning Drama “Asa ga Kita”. It seems that chances for her appearing in the drama is high as well.

People related to NHK have speculated that she’d appear in the drama. “The executive producer Sano Motohiko is a big AKB fan and having them sing the theme song was his earnest wish. He also said it’s not impossible that the members appear in the drama and asked people to look forward to it. At the very least, we can expect center Yamamoto to appear?”

The storyline of this drama is set in Osaka. Apparently, it was also executive producer Sano Motohiko who pushed for  Yamamoto(who is born in Osaka) to be center.

“In previous morning dramas, other members like Murayama Yuiri and Fujie Reina have acted as well but their airtime was short. Yamamoto should have the longest airtime amongst them. Watanabe Mayu,Shimazaki Haruka, Kitahara Rie, Yokoyama Yui etc have all expressed their hopes to be actresses and auditioned for the heroine role. I think their chances to appear is high.”
