As a proud Toyota owner and as someone who can't easily go to AKB48's shows, I support this 100%.

Team 8
Translated by Neve at 21:46, Thu 01/23

It’s been made clear that a new AKB48 Team 8 will be put together.

This was announced on the first day of the “AKB48 Request Hour Setlist Best 200” on the 1st January at Tokyo Dome City Hall.

The concept of how the new Team 8 will be put together and the member selection is different to how things have been done before. In collaboration with their official media partners, auditions will be held in each of the 47 prefectures, and one name will be chosen. The Team 8 members will be chosen from within those 47 candidates.

Under the concept of, “Idols who will go to meet you,” they will do activities across the whole country. It was announced that this will be backed by Toyota Automobiles.

At a journalists' meeting prior to the performance, Takahashi Minami talked about the newly established Team 8, “The sense of anticipation about the new form of AKB48 is very strong. I think the most important thing is for us to hold concerts and show everyone our smiling faces, so I think it would be great if, through this audition, we could spread our smiles to everyone in the country.” Oshima Yuko, captain of Team K, said with a wide smile, “The AKB48 Group Pennant Race will begin soon, so forming Team 8 will increase the spirit of friendly competition between everyone. Moreover, gathering elite members from across the whole country will increase excitement in Japan itself.” Team B captain Umeda Ayaka said, “Up until now we’ve had the slogan, “Idols you can meet,” but with the formation of the new Team 8 under the heading, “Idols who come to meet you,” I’m looking forward to the change this brings to the 48 Group.”

On top of that, the younger members also gave messages aimed at potential recruits who will take on the challenge of the auditions. Talking about her own experiences, Nishino Miki said, “Originally, I’d never learned to dance or sing, so I thought I definitely couldn’t pass the auditions, but I’ve learned so many things through my activities with AKB48. Through my efforts, I was able to be promoted to Team 4, so I want those people who are thinking of participating in the auditions not to give up!” Okada Nana also said, “People who are taking the auditions for the first time will find themselves so nervous their head goes blank, but it’s okay if you can appeal just a little with your own special skills and charm.”

Takahashi finished by saying, “AKB48 really needs the power of young people. Without worrying about how it’s impossible, I want you to step forward and take this chance. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone! Let’s deliver our smiles to everyone through our activities.”

From tomorrow, the 24th January, applications for auditions will start being accepted across the whole country. Team 8 will be formed in the last 10 days of March, and the plan is to hold an unveiling event in May. The team will have its debut show at the AKB48 Theatre in August, and will embark on a countrywide tour in November.

The Gifu representative in AKB48 Team 8 announces her graduation from the group
June 19, 2014

On June 18, idol group AKB48 Team 8 member Okubora Chinatsu, who is Gifu prefecture's representative, announced her graduation from the group.

She explained the reason for her graduation on the team's official site, "It's been about 2 months since our activities began, and it was getting difficult for me to continue the activities while coping with my schoolwork, so I started feeling that I would not be able to stay as the way I am in front of you fans if I continued this."

As Team 8 has a concept that is "idols that go to see you" with 47 members chosen from each prefecture, there will be an audition to elect a new representative of Gifu, which will be only for the residents in Gifu prefecture.

For the record, as of this post, no official announcement has been made yet, therefore, unless the Hallohallo Inc guys just goofed up and mentioned it really early when maybe they weren't supposed to, the following post is making an assumption that there's going to be an MNL48 (even including a Photoshopped "MNL48" logo on one of the photos taken from the event).

Team 8 Members each send a message to
Minami Takahashi congratulating her on
her upcoming graduation, and thanking
her for her leadership and kindness.

All of the girls did a nice job, my favorite
response starts at 4:53, from 15 year old
Yuri Yokomichi of Shizuoka ken.....

AKB48 Team 8's Fujimura Natsuki, Yamamoto Ai and Iwasaki Moeka announce graduation
April 4, 2016

AKB48 Team 8 members Fujimura Natsuki, Yamamoto Ai, and Iwasaki Moeka have announced their graduation from the group.

This announcement came on the first day of Team 8's concert "Team 8 Kessei 2 Shunen Kinen Tokubetsu Kouen in Okinawa Mensore! Haru no Eight Matsuri" at Nakagusuku Castle in Okinawa. Fujimura and Iwasaki have graduated from the group as of April 3. As for Yamamoto, her graduation concert will be held in the coming days at AKB48 Theater.


See comments from each of the members below.

Fujimura Natsuki: "I never had a dream until I became a member of Team 8. That is to become a hair and make-up artist. Right now, I am attending a vocational school for hair and make-up, and I am studying very hard. It became difficult to continue my activities in Team 8, and I didn't want to cause trouble to the other members, so I decided to graduate."

Yamamoto Ai: "This year was my 'Coming-of-Age Ceremony,' and I started thinking more and more about my future. After thinking about it very hard, my other dream of becoming an actress became bigger. I want to seriously study acting. It will be a severe path, but I want to challenge it with my own strength."

Iwasaki Moeka: "After getting into my first-choice school, I wanted to go after my childhood dream of becoming a doctor. In order to make my dream come true, I have to study a lot, so continuing Team 8 activities in that condition, I didn't think I could commit to them both wholeheartedly."
