I thought the debate regarding Aimi Eguchi whether she was real or not was more or less over – she’s fake and is a composition of AKB48 members so why is AKB48 management claiming that she’s real even after Team K’s Ayaka Kikuchi said on her blog she was fake. It seems that Ayarin has made a huge mistake in saying this as her blog entry has now been edited to delete this piece of information. This was her original blog entry: ““Eguchi Aimi-san is cute❤ She’s just too pretty! lol lol lol She’s in the 12.5 generation~ I also did a shoot! I wonder when a part of my face will be used (hehe)”. Glico in which Aimi Eguchi is part of a campaign for their product is even refusing to comment on anything about her.
This is what AKB48’s management company AKS has said about Aimi: “She’s real! She didn’t take the 12th generation auditions, so we had to quickly accept her (into generation 12.5)”. This is getting even more strange now but I still believe she’s fake. Fans have uncovered another piece of the puzzle that may be linked to this curious story. In February, Yuko posted a blog entry with dots all over her face. She didn’t say at the time what it was all about but many are saying this was a shoot to create Aimi.
Let’s see her perform live with other AKB48 members in front of an audience – that’s the only way AKB48 management can prove to us that she’s real otherwise we will never believe that she’s anything more than a CG creation.
