Fans have been questioning as to why a former NMB48 auditionee has been transferred mysteriously all of a sudden to become an AKB48 kenkyuusei. Aimi Eguchi is having a massive push and has already been on the cover of Weekly Playboy and is the campaign girl of Glico’s Aisu no Mi sweets. Aki-P thinks very highly of her and thinks she’s the next ace of AKB48 even calling her “the heroine of the new age” and said she’s like Jurina Matsui in terms of skill. The icing on the cake is when Aki-P said that he may have created AKB48 just to meet her!!
But that’s not all that’s been bothering the fans – they think Aimi isn’t a real person at all but a CG idol that’s been created by compositing other AKB48 members features. I find that a bit hard to believe but the Glico website which has an audio interview with her has had some saying it closely resembles Acchan’s voice. With no video evidence of Aimi so far, the fans will speculate that she’s not real until she makes an appearance.
Well on taking a closer look at her picture, I’m starting to believe that it could indeed be a CG idol. I can see Acchan’s eyes and some Yuko and Tomochin. What’s the point in creating a CG idol then? When is Aki-P going to let us in on the joke? What do you guys think – is she a real person or not?
This is from the Glico website, looks even more fake especially the profile pics and the voice especially the mannerisms is definitely Acchan’s:
And this is the actual Glico CM
