I’m a bit confused as to why Team A member Rino Sashihara has decided to change her stage name over the weekend to Sashiko? It’s got to be a joke by her hasn’t it? Even her profile on AKB48′s website has been changed to reflect this. It all began with a CM for Heavy Rotation which you can see below. Will she say something on her blog in the next few days about how we’ve all been fooled by her and that she’s reverting back to her real name? It must be something to do with the 24 Hour Television charity event that’s taken place. Expect this ‘ inside joke’ to be revealed to everybody soon. There’s no way that this name change is permanent!
EDIT: It’s been revealed that it was a joke after all by AKB48 management. That puts an end to all this nonsense then. Thanks Melos for clearing it up. Panic over!!

No sooner had I posted all about KISS&KISS that I hear about another new idol group that’s going to be making their debut soon. KNU23 is their name and it consists of 16 gravure idols. Apparently the KNU part of their name has 2 meanings – “keep natural under” and the other one which made me laugh refers to “kyonyuu” – large breasts!!! It is said that all of the members are rather well endowed.
KNU23 is going to have a school theme with members being divided into 2 classes – “P” and “X”. What’s the significance of the classes being P and X? There’s even talk of a senbatsu election coming up to decide on between 5-8 members for the group’s “student council” of sorts.
KNU23 held their debut event yesterday in Tokyo stating their intention to hold live performances and release CD’s but no dates has been given yet as to when either will happen.
