NGT48 Theater to open in Niigata
May 25, 2015

NGT48's official theater will open at Lovela Bandai 2 in Niigata.

This was announced on May 24th during a press conference held at Niigata Nippou Media Shop. Attendees of the press conference included NGT48 theater director Imamura Etsuro,  NGT48 captain Kitahara Rie, and the candidates who were drafted into the group, Nishigata Marina and Ogino Yuka.

To Imamura's signal, a video started playing for about 1,100 guests who gathered at the press conference. When it was announced that the theater would open at Lovela Bandai 2, the crowd gave a loud cheer and a round of applause. On the reason for the theater opening at that specific location, Imamura said, "We decided on Bandai as it is accessible, being about 15-minutes away from Niigata Station, and that it's a town where people of different generations come to gather. I want various people to come and visit." Kitahara added, "It's a fashion building, so I'm expecting NGT48 Theater to be a fashionable theater. Everyone in Niigata, please continue to support us."

Besides this announcement, Imamura revealed that there were 5,850 applicants for NGT48's 1st generation audition.

most likely if following HKT, they will probably have 14-16 girls (Kitarie and Yukirin included) be N3 but that'll be a while to see your best girls.

The rest will be KKS with them filling in as is I assume
