AKB48 appeared yesterday on SMAP’s TV Show “SMAP x SMAP”. SMAP members performed with AKB48 on a selection of their hits which included “Heavy Rotation”, “Ponytail to Shushu”, “Beginner” and “Everyday Kachuusha”. It looks like the SMAP boys had a blast doing this. Check out the video below.
As always, I know I keep saying this but this is likely to be taken down soon so look at it while you can and enjoy this special performance.

A couple of days ago, Osaka’s own NMB48 held a press conference to announce that they’ll be releasing their debut CD single on July 20th which will be called “Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo“. There’s a bit of a creepy catch that’s been arranged for the members of Team N for this single by a couple of comedians which includes Ryota from Nankai Candies. If they fail to reach no.1 with this single they’ll have to perform at their theater in bloomers!! I’m sure they’ll be hoping that they won’t be going up against any Johnny’s groups in the charts as they always sell strongly.
Here’s a small feature from a TV programme which announces their CD single debut:
I haven’t really been paying attention to NMB48 as I don’t want the hassle of trying to remember any more names. I have enough trouble as it is with AKB48 and SKE48. I like the sound of NMB48′s single, it’s certainly catchy enough.

In a surprising announcement at the end of today’s performance of Himawari-gumi 1st stage, AKB48 theater manager Togasaki said that a new team will be created which will be called Team 4. Recently I posted that Fresh Lemon had been promoted from the kenkyuusei ranks but had yet to be assigned a team. She’ll now be in Team 4 along with the 9 other kenkyuusei members that were promoted in December 2010. Now you may be asking yourself there’s only 10 members here when the other teams has 16 – if they’re going to have all teams with the same number of members where are the other 6 going to be coming from? The answer is other kenkyuusei members will be filling up the necessary spots so that they can perform as a team. They’ll apparently have their own stage to perform in the future as well. Here’s the names of those in Team 4:
I’m not sure if this is going to be a permanent team or not? If members of Team A, K and B graduate will those in Team 4 move into one of them? I’m happy for the 10 girls now that their team situation has been solved but it begs the question as to whether the rest of the kenkyuusei members might be moved into a new team that could be created soon – Team 8!
