Japanese pop group AKB48 are featured on recent issue of FLASH magazine, which covered their performance-trip in Singapore last month. 16 of the group’s 48 members held a concert at the Suntec Convention Centre on November 12 in conjunction with the Anime Festival Asia. And seems like the girls were afforded a bit of leisure time touring the island nation as well. Click image for full size pic…
Japanese music video of Kimi no Koto ga Suki Dakara (君のことが好きだから, what I like about you) by pop group AKB48…
The song was included in their 2009 best selling single-album River. Most of the time only 16 of the 48 members (usually the popular crop) would feature in the title track, while some others would feature in secondary tracks, as in this case.
Watarirouka Hashiritai is arguably AKB48’s most successful sub-unit. All their singles (and an album) have managed to reach the top 10 on Oricon weekly chart, including their previous single AkKanbe Bashi which peaked at #1.
The five members of Watarirouka Hashiritai are Mayu Watanabe, Aika Oota, Natsumi Hirajima, Haruka Nakagawa and Ayaka Kikuchi.
Japanese music video – a short movie to be precise – for Sakura no Hanabiratachi (桜の花びらたち, lit. Petals of Cherry Tree) by girl group AKB48, a 2008 remake of their debut single from 2006. The song expresses the nostalgia of high school graduation which usually happens around cherry blossom season in Japan.
