By now, all of you should know that Aimi Eguchi has been revealed as being a fake idol created by Glico for their Aisu no Mi product. The link (thanks Joseph) to Glico’s website and the video below shows which parts they used from various AKB48 members to create her: Yuko’s hair/body, Takamina’s outline, Acchan’s eyes, Mayuyu’s eyebrows, Tomochin’s nose and Mariko’s mouth. 12th gen kenkyuusei Yukari Sasaki provided her voice.
As this is now out in the open, Glico has unveiled a surprise on their website. You can create your own idol using parts from 47 AKB48 members. I haven’t had a go yet but might try something later on today.
