An idol group from Gunma prefecture that started in March which boasts over 100 (yes that right 100!!) members held their 1st official event in Tokyo today. The name of the group comes from the most recognised mountain in the prefecture “Akagi” and 48 number makes no damn sense if they’ve got over 100 members. They’ve bluntly boasted though they will become just as successful as AKB48 in the future. That’s quite a bold statement. Lineup at the back of the queue girls with the rest of the other AKB imitation idol groups that have threatened to do the same.
A store in Ginza that sells products from Gunma prefecture offered the group a chance to make themselves known in Tokyo so teamG (even their teams are the same as AKB48 – well they do say that imitation in the sincerest form of flattery) came to the store and sang their hit “Knee High☆Lover” outside the store. This is apparently only the start of their activities to make themselves known to idol fans across Japan.
Check out their performance of Ponytail to Shushu below. What do you think of them?
