Good news for all AKB48 fans that loved their comedy series Bimyo which ended it’s first season last month. It’s now been renewed for a 2nd season due to healthy viewing figures. It doesn’t surprise me at all with this news. It’s such a funny series and I hope we’ll see more of Yui Yokoyama as Honmayan! There’s no information about how long the 2nd series will last for – perhaps 20 episodes (the same as the first?) or when it’ll start airing but I hope it’s soon.
Yesterday saw the trio of Yui, Miichan and Umechan attend the Hikari TV announcement event for the 2nd season. In a testament to AKB48’s popularity, Hikari TV revealed that 2 million new subscribers have joined their video distribution service thanks to the group. A special cake was baked and presented in front of the three girls to celebrate this news.
I can’t wait until Bimyo returns.
