A tabloid magazine “BreakMax” has picked up a story that remained a secret until they published it in their pages regarding a recent incident that happened for Kojima Haruna.
Apparently during the recording for the “Mecha Mecha Iketeru” special that was aired on April 9th, Kojima fainted and hit her head on a desk. Sasshi and Sayaka were two other AKB48 members appearing on the show. Staff working on the show had noticed that something was amiss when Kojima felt giddy and failed to respond to the show’s host Okamura teasing her about a wrong answer. The recording was stopped whilst everybody rushed to check if she was alright. Kojima regained consciousness quickly and apologised for making everybody worry for her. The rest of the recording passed without incident. During all of the drama, Sasshi and Sayaka remained cool, calm and collected – they’ve probably seen it all before with other members. Looking back on the incident, one Fuji TV staff member said Kojima looked tired and had bloodshot eyes. It makes you wonder how many times this sort of thing happens for AKB48 members.
