Thank you very much. Yeah though she isn't my oshimen, I love Takamina. As tiny as she my be, she is a giant. My portrait of her AKB48: Takahashi Minami - Shogun is one of my favorite AKB illustrations. AKB48 is all I'm working on right now so you can expect much more of them from me.

Oh, my. :love: I've only heard a few songs from AKB48 (so far!); my favorite so far is "River". Again, you do incredible work! :)

Thank you. I'm sure you noticed I'm really into AKB48. They are as individuals and as a whole very inspiring. River is really an amazing song, it supposedly help a save a girl's life in Japan. She was depressed and contemplating suicide but when she heard the song it convinced her to keep on living, inspired her to finish school and far as I know she is doing well. AKB48 is cute on the surface but if you dig deeper you'll see there is much more to them
