AKB48: Maeda Atsuko - AKB0048 version by Sumo0172 AKB48: Maeda Atsuko - AKB0048 version by Sumo0172
Atsuko Maeda is a member Team A and is long considered the face of AKB48.

Atsuko Maeda is arguably the most famous member of AKB48. On March 25, 2012, she announced she will be graduating from AKB48.

In this illustration I drew Acchan wearing a costume inspired by the costume designed for the anime AKB0048.

I started listening to the music of the AKB a few days ago. And just now Acchan decides to leave (she's leaving right?) TT-TT #crying

they translated Acchan statement about her graduation here.

[link]

you need an account to watch it but it's worth it.
the site have music videos not on their YT channel as well as english subbed AKBINGO, and documentaries like Kins Ma and Show must Go On that really make you appreciate how amazing AKB is. They started out with literally nothing.
anyway Acchan leaving is understandable..i think most Acchan fans expected it to happen sooner or later.

they are a great three. my oshimen is Sae-chan. i recommend looking through the rankings of the entire group, they are an amazing and talented bunch of ladies. and those lesser known girls deserve some fan love too, they are all awesome

since you are new to the AKB phenomenon may i recommend some videos that really tell their story. you may already be familiar with them, if you are sorry.

this is the documentary The Show Must Go On [link]
and the documentary The future 1mm ahead [link]
the documentaries really highlight how strong and dedicated the members of AKB48 are and they solidified my respect for them

the entire vid48.com website is full of hard to find videos

i guess that's all. well new AKB fan welcome to the family
