Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Bird
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I first heard of AKB in December 2006 and from what I could see they looked like a more pervy version of Morning Musume, never really a bad thing. I didn't really take a great deal of notice of them though but I did really like "Seifuku ga Jama wo Suru" when it was released and made sure to get hold of the stage albums as soon as they were available. There was five or six songs I really liked but other than that I just kind of thought they were okay, they never really stuck with me.
It was early last year when I realised that H!P had taken over my life and was actually starting to get a little fed up with hearing the same stuff all the time. I realised that there weren't going to be too many similar groups around and so rather than look for a new one I decided to give AKB another, more serious try. I downloaded some random videos and saw clips of the live shows which made me want to get hold of some. I managed to get hold of A4 and isntantly loved it. It basically all grew from there; before then I'd really only known about 15-20 of the girls and didn't really know anyhting about them but I kind of made it my mission after that to find out as much as I could. Since then I've seen them take over H!P as my favourite music act and I haven't looked back.
Reason why you like AKB48: A lot of non-AKB fans say that in comparison to H!P the girls have "no personality", and at first this was something I found it hard not to agree with. This has now become a plus point for me though; as I've realised that not only do the girls have shed loads of personality, they ahve far more than the majority of H!P members ever convey. The whole "character" thing isn't taken to the extremes and so when you see the girls talking to each other they actually seme like real people rather than products of the industry, making them far more believable. Of course the music is important too and unlike a lot of other idol stuff I think that some of the lyrics in AKB songs are genuinely good and can even be clever and witty at times, certainly a stand out feature amongst a lot of other idol groups around now. Seeing them in Paris helped give them that boost of Momusu that they needed for me too as I'd never experienced anything quite like it. Actually speaking to Miichan and seeing the girls so close was...well I'm not even going to bother trying to put it into words. I basically burst into tears when I finally got to see one of their shows; I've not much shame in saying that as I'm sure I'd do it again. :monster:

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Suifu wa Arashi ni Yume wo Miru

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I saw their Aitakka PV and Music Fighter performance, and I thought it was cool. However, at the time I just got into Morning Musume/H!P and I thought AKB was for pervs  :lol:. It wasn't until Sakura 2K8 I really got into them. I didn't like the singles they released before that one at the time. When I got my weekly 1ji59fun/AKBingo fix I really got to know them and started following them more closely. Then dramas like men-dol appeared which are just great fun.

Reason why you like AKB48: They genuinely enjoy what they do. It's great fun to watch them. Another thing I like is that they have quite of few proper guitar based songs, including pretty intense guitar solos and heavy backing tracks. Their show in Paris was unlike any concert I've seen before. Like I said, they enjoy what they do and their smiles and energy is contagious.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: This is cruel.  Himawari.

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan:  I blame Dave.  I heard about them from Redux/Dave, and had a little listen, the singles were the ones that hooked me at first.  I still stayed a fairly casual AKB fan, only knew a few girls' names, hadn't seen the dramas (except Men-Dol), and wasn't too bothered about the stage DVDs.  I still preferred MoMusu, because I found their songs too catchy.  However, I started to get bored with them, and their new songs just weren't "doing it" for me like the older ones had.  They took too long to get into, didn't really catch me at first and were too mature.  Then I started to listen to team A's stages and went through A1, A2 , A3 and A4 relatively quickly, and became quite a fan of Team A, but I didn't really focus on the other teams other than the occasional listen.  I couldn't quite get the sheer energy and pep that is involved with them with just listening, then came Paris.  During the two months before, I delved further into AKB, watched some of their personal vids, and concert clips of my favourite songs.  Seeing them live really changed everything; I saw how much they put into their performances, and the girls' personalities shone through.  Since then, I can't stop loving them! 

Reason why you like AKB48:  They can actually sing.  One of my problems with MoMusu stems from girls like Sayumi and Koharu who can't sing.  Although Kasai has an "interesting" voice, she's still got the talent, and all the other girls range from good to excellent.  They're all normal girls who have a passion for singing and doing what they do.  I enjoy watching them for their talent, their stage presence, and the daft things that they do otherwise.  They're definitely my favourite artists, and if my iPod would scrobble properly, they'd have beaten MoMusu to a pulp on my Last.fm.

Reason why you like AKB48: Just everything about their concept, the members the songs the dances the outfits the videos...just everything.  The love they have for their fans etc.  A really big thing for me is the variety of songs that they get through the stages format.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Mushi no Ballad

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: In 2007, when I had already left the H!P fandom, some of my friends began to send me lots of AKB48 videos and pictures. At first I didn't pay attention and I really disliked them XD
But one day, a friend showed me the perfect video... Blue Rose and I got hooked... Totally doomed. And fell for Sayaka, of course.

Reason why you like AKB48: Because their songs are different (or used to be). Their lyrics go beyond the pure image most idols want to reflect. I mean, they have actual lesbian songs! Even though their latest singles have been happy, their stages keep that wide vision of the world. I love that. Also, I like the "idol you can meet" thing. Things have changed a bit, though. But, even if things have changed, they are still the girls you can meet. I love the fact you can write to them and send them presents, and you're sure they will read those letters and keep the present. And they're gonna remember you... That's the most amazing thing ever. They appreciate their fans and I hope that never changes.

I'll never regret the girl I chose as my favorite, and I'll never change her. Loyalty is the first virtue of a fan.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Boku no Taiyou - Even though there are now songs that I like more or listen to more often, it has a special meaning to me.
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: The first time I went to the theater out of curiosity. I knew about them before but they were just another idol group. But since I was there, why not give it a shot? A few days later I lined up to see my first show...
Reason why you like AKB48:
I don't know how I'd feel about them if I hadn't seen them live and experienced the whole "idols you can go meet" thing, but since I have, I can say that it's the main reason for liking them. Even before I came to Japan, my interest in H!P was declining. I've been a long time fan and didn't want to give it up easily and tried my best to revive the fandom. But even there, I failed. Going to concerts, going to the shops - it was nice to be able to do that but the songs remained bad (personal opinion!) and concerts or events were rare and expensive. I've also met some of the most creepy people at the offical shops (personal experience again, please don't generalize). In contrast, AKB48 felt fresh and the concept was interesting.

When I went to see my first show, before the introduction of email based reservation, I had to get up in the middle of the night, take the first train to Akihabara and wait outside DonKi in the cold for almost six hours just to buy the ticket. That day my line was called almost last (entrance lottery) and I had to stand near the DJ booth, way in the back. My feet hurt like hell and I felt very tired. But the moment the show started, I knew that it was worth it. Even from my position I was able to clearly see them and the atmosphere was simply amazing.
Over the months, I was able to meet quite a few of them at different events and ultimately got my 2shot with my favorite member - something that (depending on who your favorite is) is almost impossible for the average H!P fan.
They're still just idols and I'm still just a fan - but I feel I'm getting so much more out of it.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Yuuhi wo Miteiru ka? - for special reasons
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: While my H!P fandom wasn't waning that much, the decline of Haromoni coinciding with the rise of AKB 0ji 59fun really clinched it for me. I mean, who wouldn't want to watch cute girls being tortured for our amusement?
Reason why you like AKB48: Too many things! With a minimum of 48 girls, there are no 'boring' members at any one time. The theater concept is rather innovative. The excellent costumes. "Request Hour set list best 100" is an awesome concert series. The girls being in different talent agencies means seeing them in a variety of things. Management 'surprises'. Their blogs, and I'll end it there.

Reason why you like AKB48:I have a lot of reasons! I like the happy catchy and chorus type songs,the girls are funny and cute,I was just an H!P fan before,now I'm a fan of both!  :)

Favorite Graduated AKB48 Member: Hoshino Michiru. Her singing voice is absolutely beautiful, I believe she's the only graduated member to release a solo album, and her surprise appearance at Mai's graduation brought tears to my eyes.
Favorite AKB48 Group/Subgroup: No Sleeves
Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: I'd have to say Tsundere! It really is the perfect song for Tomochin.
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: It was actually fairly recently. Saw Namida Surprise PV posted on someone's blog when it first came out. Liked it well enough to do a YouTube search and see their other PVs. At some point that day, I fell madly in love with Tomochin and had to see everything with her in it. Of course, the more I watched, the more I got to know the other girls and care about them as well. Now, I've seen all the stages and concerts, and even Densen Uta and Mendol. Will probably start on AKBingo next.
Reason why you like AKB48: The girls. Their personalities shine through in everything they do. That's why I want to watch AKBingo: to see more of those great personalities. I also love the stage show concept, because of my Theatre background. And the music can always lift my spirits when I'm having a bad day at work. I get funny looks from my coworkers sometimes, but they already know how obsessed I am with Japanese language and culture anyway.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Sakura no Hanabiratachi (in French!)
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I just started watching AKB's various shows, and I quite liked them. I've always 'liked' AKB but not nearly enough to follow them. But their TV personalities are great enough that I actually do want to take the effort to follow them. I guess I'm late to the party, but I used to diss AKB before dissing AKB was cool, so does that make me fashionably late?
Reason why you like AKB48: Fresh, and vibrant. I like how AKB does not mask its intentions (it caters to the wota, of course), and the general honesty of it all appeals to me. Also, the fact that people won't assume I live in my parents' basement with a dakimakura with Atsuko Maeda printed on it is great, too.

In October 2007, someone mentioned that AKB's "BINGO!" was a good song, I decided to check it out and I kind of liked it. I listened to more of their stuff, liked it, and "the rest is history". =P
Reason why you like AKB48: The music. AKB has a lot of great members, but I wouldn't be a fan of them if they had crappy music.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Bird
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: When? I think it was last month... no! it was in October. lol I know AKB48 since 2006, when they released Aitakatta but I wasn't a fan and I didn't like the group. I have to admit that I had a little of prejudice as many H!P fans have (although I had nothing against the girls). I got some interest because I liked RIVER and a friend of mine started talk about the group. And on a precious day he sent me a Takamina's video that made me love her. Since this day I watched a ton of videos, all PVs, various concerts, AKBINGO and SHUKAN episodes, etc, and heard the whole discography.
Reason why you like AKB48: The girls, the music, the dance, the costumes, their world. They are really amazing, I really admire them, their talent, energy, the way they look for their dreams... They are full of personality, that makes me like them more and more. ^^

But... damn I totally changed my life  :w00t: It was pure awesomeness Much better than all H!P stuff I´ve ever heard so I became an AKB wota ^^
Reason why you like AKB48: The songs are so great. For every mood you can get there´s a Song that is just what you need. I also love the voices of the members they are cute and right the members really can sing. And what I really like, but what others don´t like to much (of course not all mostly H!P fans) that there are so many member in the teams  :inlove:  And of course I like it cause the girls are sooo .... aaah I can´t find words for their cuteness, I LOVE THEM especially Yuko.

Favorite AKB48 Member: Masuda Yuka
Favorite AKB48 Subgroup: Warota
Other favorite this and that: Skip, lol.
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Heard bout them back as a project annoucement (mostly from naysayers :p), listened to stuff when they came out. Liked music for sukahira, found it interesting, though didn't like voices, PV (girls weren't the lookers they are now, didn't like particular seifuku design and the hirari move was actually quite the turn off for me back then). Almost forgot about them, then noticed quite the bit of H!P "fans" hatin' on group again, so got interested again. Kinda did witness the birth of team K. Aitakatta finally got me hooked and turned me into a pretty hardcore fan instantly. Noticed some threads appearing on several English boards so decided to join them all and start pimpin' the group. That's how I got here. S48 started and since I did get quite a few people to go there I pretty much paid less attention to the other forums. Not too late to get back here when we have an actual section for the group now though, right?
Reason why you like AKB48: What, they never told me you needed a reason!! Well whatever, here's 48 and more!

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I saw magazine article about them over year ago.

Keibetsu Shiteita Aijou was first song that hit the spot. I fell in love!
Reason why you like AKB48: Girls really try do their best and each of them have their own dreams what they reach for. I just can't hate anyone of this group. Do your best girls! ;__;

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: When I realized the girls from Mendol were from AKB48. :shocked  The idea of Idols playing that kind of roles caught my attention, changing my perception of them. Then, I found about their stages and got to know about the infamous OshiMeshi combi, as well as SaeYaka and AKBingo, which only served to deepen my interest.
Reason why you like AKB48: They're both pretty standard and unusual idols. I can tell their personas are clearly defined, but at the same time they go further than common expectations. Also, they're not typical beauties or cuties, which makes me want to know more about them. Oh, and they can sing, too!  :lol:

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Bird (second most played in my ipod. Heart no Ondo is first, but I don't know if that's categorized as an AKB48 song.)  :nervous

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan:
I think it was around November when I was bored and remembered watching Coffee Prince about a year ago. For some reason, it never got me hooked like REALLY hooked that would make me search for pictures or videos related to the show. It was the first 'gender bender' show for me so I decided to watch other shows just like that. I don't remember what I typed clearly. It was something like, 'gender-bender dramas' or something like that. I used yahoo answers. There I saw 'Mendol Ikemen Idol' being recommended. I decided to check on it and saw the 3 No Sleeves girls. I was drawn by seeing Haruna as a cute boy.  :lol: So I decided to watch it. Honestly, I almost let go of that drama when I saw the first couple of minutes. Their acting was horrible. I can feel the awkwardness and nervousness. (Thinking back, I guess it's only natural because it was their first leading roles) The only person that got me to hang on was Takamina's acting. She was annoying at first but then if you really look at it, she has the most natural acting between the three. She wasn't trying hard. So I decided to watch it and she slowly intrigued me. After watching Mendol, I started searching out for her and I soon stubled into AKB48. I was a Takamina fan at first, then I became an AKB48 fan when I watched some of their shows especially AKBINGO. I guess Mendol got me hooked like REALLY hooked. Plus it was my first Japanese drama so...YAY!  :thumbup

Reason why you like AKB48:
-When I see them in AKBINGO they're like a bunch of kids but when they perform their songs they're like...different people. They give 100% whenever they perform.
-I like their personality. I can see most of my friends personality in them.
-Their MUSIC!  :twothumbs

Loved it (Atsuko is so cute XD) so I like raided Youtube for anything they were in. Been following them for a bit but never actually joined a forum for them until now :D and I still don't know names OTL

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: FIRST LOVE
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan:
I saw AKBINGO for the first time one night after randomly switching channels and thought "AKB48 is still around still, huh".I had no interest to continue watching but to my surprise, I stayed till the end and had a great time.I enjoy good laughs and for the first time ever thought idols can be funny and humorous too.
When I went to class, I saw a girl that I knew from somewhere but I couldn't tell right away.I greeted politely and sat next to her.We talked a lot and totally ignored the class.Then I woke up :?.It was only a dream :shocked.(Haha got you!).
The next week I watched AKBINGO again with hopes it will have the same magic effect on me again.It was then when I knew the girl in my dream was actually Ono Erena.
I told a friend about my "weird" experience and he told me that I have became a fan. :wub:
Ono Erena single handedly broke the wall of bad impressions I had about idols.
Reason why you like AKB48:
Wide variety of songs.The lyrics are cute and meaningful.Some are full with supportive messages that make you want to work hard for the whole day.
Wide variety of characters.I never get bored watching them perform on stages and in TV programs.

I am still trying to get to know the girls better and learn to accept who they are.If I hate someone who has thousands, maybe millions of fans, then something is wrong with me(my weakness is I usually ignore the good side of a person and only look at the bad side :thumbdown:).I think I am doing a great progress.For example, I didn't find Tomomi's voice annoying anymore.Yay for me!

Absolute Favourite AKB48 Song: Maybe RIVER?
When/how did you become an AKB fan:
I was looking around the Internet for random dramas to watch, and then one day I came across Mendol, which had a cool title in Chinese, so I watched it. My parents would really disprove of some of the content  :smhid, but I really liked the plot, so I kept watching. It really touched me to see how hard Kuu, Riku and Kai worked to become idols. But the thing that actually introduced me to AKB was Oogoe Diamond. I kept hearing it at the end of the show, so then a few months later I looked it up and then I found out about AKB. As with Mendol, the PVs were kinda  :smhid XDDD. I don't know what happened. Under normal circumstances, I would've stopped looking them up, but I think deep down I couldn't believe that those three that I saw working so hard in Mendol could actually be "bad" (i.e. sing songs like "Seifuku ga jama wo suru" XDD).
At first, I was more interested in Takamina (because of Kai), but then I found out about Acchan.

...  :lol:

But jokes aside, I really like Acchan's personality. I guess I really fall for the girl-next-door feeling?

Reason why you like AKB48:
Like in Persona, I like how hard the girls in AKB48 work to fulfill their dreams. It's so awe-inspiring, especially since they're around my age. And I like how natural they all are, with their girl-next-door feeling. What I respect most about AKB48 is how they can bring so many people together, in terms of both the members and the fans. Listening to their music, sometimes it gets annoying when the fans shout over their singing, but there's also those times when the fans cheer so loud and so together that it's just amazing. For example, when they sing along to "Dareka no tame ni", like in AX 2010 - it's unbelievable that so many people can sing in unison (and actually sound pretty decent), and not because it's their job or something, but because they all believe in AKB48 and want to cherish it.

Favorite AKB48 Group/Subgroup: Watarirouka Hashiritai
Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song: 君のことが好きだから
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan:
I started watching AKBINGO just before Oogoe Diamond was released in 2008. I knew about the group as far back as 2006 when I first heard Aitakatta and while I liked that song a lot, I was pretty much against getting back into idols again at that time. The thing is, I used to be heavily into H!P back when I was in high school and I kind of became disillusioned with them and I was left with a small collection of things I no longer really felt any affection for, with the exception of some old albums and stuff I still listen to out of nostalgia. Until getting into AKB, I had kind of been on a complete idol hiatus for years, with no group really grabbing my attention. But then Oogoe Diamond happened and suddenly they were everywhere and impossible to avoid, not that I would have wanted to anyway. The more attention I paid to AKB48, the more I obsessed I became, and now I have a pile of photobooks and an empty wallet. The day Sumire was promoted from kenkyuusei to a full team member was probably when I decided that I was all in.

Reason why you like AKB48:
I like them because there's no artificial barrier between them and their fans. The girls are honest and are, as far as I can tell, allowed to be themselves for the most part. They also have pretty diverse relationships and aren't afraid to hide them. Oh and the music is what drew me in at first I guess. Aki-P is pretty good at that stuff.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: I'll say RIVER just because it's what started the interest.
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I've never really liked AKB before, but then I heard RIVER and absolutely loved it. I still wasn't that much of a fan, but the only thing I can do most of the time is screw around on the internet due to my job. Some time last year, I was randomly looking through videos online and came across AKBingo. Watched it, loved it, researched the group further and I became a fan. It's actually made me plan a trip after my graduation so I can see them live. I am still somewhat of a closet fan though, so I'll have to convince my friends who go with me to either come to a show as well, or lie and disappear for a day.

Reason why you like AKB48: It's not hard to find a member you like.

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: In... mid 2008, I joined my first fandubbing group, and the first song we did was Skirt, Hirari. I realized I really liked it and I started looking up AKB48 things.
Reason why you like AKB48: The music/girls are cute, happy and fun; I enjoy the wide variety of songs and I really like the interesting things they do, like doing the Team YJ and Team PB battle; events like that with fans just makes it a lot more interesting. I'm also looking forward to when I study abroad in Japan and I can get to know the members/stages better by going to stage performances; they're not expensive, so I'm sure I'll become a much bigger AKB fan when I do that.

Favorite AKB48 Member: Hard to choose... Yuko "OBILIR" Oshima, Sayaka, Acchan atm.
Favorite Team: A
Favorite Graduated AKB48 Member: Mai Oshima, one cute sexy ass.
Favorite AKB48 Group/Subgroup: SDN48 - It's a TRAP!
Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Aitakatta! YES! YES!
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Gradually, but surely. Brainwash from Masa, Barrie, mal, the rest :lol: mostly but they were in every gravure publication, digital photo spread, so could not escape the girls.
Reason why you like AKB48: They're cute, sexy, and no holds barred. Esp. Yuko Oshima, shit she's epitomizes WHO GIVES A FUCK Attitude that is JPHiP.com I'd joke about how Yuko did a PB without make up, OOH BABY I LIKE IT RAW but you gotta respect someone who has the balls to pull that off, who isn't afraid to laugh at themselves. And Sayaka. I'd get into a wrestling match with her. if you know what I mean! Their marketing style is something to respect too. Still learning, there's so much and now the NBA/NHL seasons are over...

I'll never regret the girl I chose as my favorite, and I'll never change her. Loyalty is the first virtue of a fan.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Iiwake Maybe
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: browsed through random japanese songs on youtube, and encountered AKB48's Namida Surprise PV and I thought it was a good song but also very creative. Secondly I watched River PV and I thought it was alright. And finally I watched Iiwake Maybe. I was then convinced the music they produce is pretty damn good!! :D
Reason why you like AKB48: the music they produce actually convinced me to become a fan. Now its more than just music - the variety shows (i watch it just to practice on my Japanese), dramas, weekly photoshoots, merchandise, and the members - i'd probably say every one of them is cute, and its not that hard to find your favourite member either!! (it took me 45 seconds just to find one) :D

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Keibetsu Shiteita Aijou
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I blame thank maliciel and ronin. I had a gigantic idol group-shaped void in my life for several years, after losing interest in H!P. I had loved 'Keibetsu' when it first came out, but largely ignored AKB stuff until 2010, right around the time they released Ponytail.
Reason why you like AKB48: Mendol Because Yuko can shove her face in someone else's boobs, and that's perfectly ok.

Reason why you like AKB48: It's a fresh change after watching Morning Musume for 2 years and SNSD for 1 year. And I'll admit they're not that bad on TV and in concerts. Their songs are catchy as well. .....And it's because of the Heavy Rotation PV.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Beginner...it was the song that really made me want to know more about AKB.
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Well, I started off really hating AKB, calling them "the enemy of H!P".  Yeah, I used to be a purist with my Idols :P  RIVER was the first thing that made me pay attention, but the only girl I really noticed was Shinoda Mariko.  I sorta ignored them some more until Heavy Rotation, which I watched for Oshima Yuko who was allegedly David to Acchan's Goliath.  Then I continued to not pay so much attention to them until Beginner.  When the Original PV for Beginner came out, I was hooked, and before I knew it I couldn't get enough of these girls <3  Now I have so many favorite songs and members, and it feels great to finally love AKB <3
Reason why you like AKB48:  Their awesome music, fun personalities, and interesting doramas!

 I know AKB48 through Kamen Rider W first, then my Multiply(MP) friend mention about Queen & Elizabeth pair on her MP, so i watch the pair debut on Kamen Rider W (i recall, that was Ep 7) and i fall for Elizabeth for the first time. the breakthrough is when i watch the leaked PV of Queen & Elizabeth - Love Wars. since then, with just the information i got on my friend's MP about Elizabeth a.k.a. Tomo~mi-chan, i begin to search on youtube on how she perform, what's her reaction like, etc
Reason why you like AKB48:great stage and concert, fun tv shows, and absolutely their songs and dances

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I first notice AKB48 in Kouhaku Utagasen, when they appeared dancing with Shokotan behind an enka singer (maybe Godai Natsuko), I thought "too many cute girls, wow!".  Searching in the internet I discovered they are AKB48, but I have more impressed with Shokotan :P
In the last Kouhaku Utagassen I recognized them in another dancing performance with Godai Natsuko, ooohhh I was very impressed with Miichan!  I have searched everything about Miichan, saw many photos and infos and found this forum, with a lot of information about AKB48.  And after see many things about Minegishi I was totally in love with another girls of the group: Takamina, Kojiharu, Mariko-sama, Mayuyu...
Reason why you like AKB48: Too many gorgeous girls singing together J-Pop music!

Reason why you like AKB48: I can't think of one single reason, i just like them because they have something special, at least in my concept, they grab my attention so badly, no other singer/band/idol have done this to me so far after Rain, that i wish i were watching stages, television programs, listening to their songs and everything about them all the time :D

(Kai is so cute! :heart:  Riku is so handsome! :inlove: Kuu is lol worthy!  :lol: )  Became a fan of No3b and soon found out that No3b is just a subunit of Akb48. By then I downloaded lots of their music.  :lol:

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Ponytail to Shushu
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I am a long time Yui Aragaki (aka Gakky) fan and came across a vid where Mayuyu ''called'' Gakky.  I've since uploaded the vid and posted it at: http://www.mayuwatanabe.com/2011/02/mayuyucalledgakky-circa-august-2010.html (http://www.mayuwatanabe.com/2011/02/mayuyucalledgakky-circa-august-2010.html)
 
Something magical happened when I saw that vid sometime back in August 2010 (if I'm not mistaken) and I went to look up Mayuyu on YouTube. I watched the Ponytail to Shushu vid and became an AKB48 fan.  Besides Mayuyu, I am a fan of Iwasa Misaki, Oshima Yuko, Maeda Atsuko...(posted a top 10 in another thread). BTW I myself don't own the domain mayuwatanabe.com (my friend does) - I just update from time to time.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Heavy Rotation
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I downloaded Sakura no Hanabiratachi the month it was released; I remember reading entertainment news articles about its formation (ever since Mari left Morning Musume, I've been checking the entertainment news every day.  I never want to be that surprised again...).  It sat benignly on my hard drive after a few listens.  Later I downloaded Virgin Love because I heard about the racy lyrics. This made me pay a little more attention to the group, but I still was focused on Hello!-oriented pursuits.  In 2008, I helped out at an event in Atlanta, and met someone who said her "little sister's classmate is an idol"; this turned out to be Nakata Chisato.  I probably would have become a fan sooner if Chiichan were ever in the news, but this at least brought me a step closer.  By 2008-09, it became pretty impossible to ignore them and still watch J-TV, so I became more and more knowledgeable without necessarily becoming a fan.  It was downloading a pack of Akimoto Sayaka's radio appearances that got me hooked - I'm a fan of idols that can talk.  From that I started listening to All Night Nippon, which made me look up all the members on Wikipedia - and discover Sashihara Rino, the H!P wota.  I think Sashiko made me a permanent fan, especially after listening to ZenJan.  But what ZenJan and the Fall Karaoke festival revealed was that KitaRie was fun fun fun as well, not to mention entirely visually cute, and ALSO a H!P fan.  So now I have a half-dozen 2-oshi's, but I spend the most time staring at KitaRie.
Reason why you like AKB48: AKB48 is like a box of chocolates.  Consuming too much makes you hyper and rots your teeth.

I had reason to brag; I'm going to AKB48 Theater for a concert (made it in the 遠方category; I guess New York counts as far enough away, right?).

It's nice to see fans that are still fans.  :)

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: January 2011 / I played the PSP game AKB1/48 Idol to Koishitara. But since the game doesn't have enough information about the girls so I ended up going to YouTube to search all the girls trying to get to know them. Afterward, I got into their music, PVs, TV shows, concerts, and from there - my journey into AKB fandom began =P

Reason why you like AKB48: 1. Takamina XD 2. Acchan XD 3. The girls - they all have great personalities. I also feel like I can really connect with them. 4. Great upbeat music that bring up my mood. 5. Love their TV shows. The best variety shows ever!! 6. They inspire and motivate me to work harder and to achieve my dreams just like they do!!

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Keibetsu Shiteita Aijou

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Well, honest truth normally I'm a metal head. But I started to love anime music in general. So day I wanted to check out japanese groups pop etc. And I asked my friend about them, and then he said look at this group there hot, and he showed me a video on youtube  called Japanese pop group. I think it was called that, anyhow that group was called Morning Musume (obviously everyone on this site knows about them) So I looked at them for a while started to obsess over Reina Tanaka. To be honest I watched a lot of there videos on mute I just wanted to look at Reina. But then that one day I found akb48 First song I ever found by them was Baby, baby, baby! And I was like O_O!!! Whaaa...SO many hot chicks in one group O_o? (yes I drooled) There was so many of them I couldn't really keep my mind on one. Then that one girl on the phone in the black and red bikini with cherries (i think i should re watch) Yes It was Takamina I was like wow, she's so hot O_O and small replayed that part like a thousand times then I was curious about how old she was. Well pretty much after that I was obsessed with her and Akb.

Reason why you like AKB48: They really do a lot of specials and shows. And it's hard to find a group like that, and there actually interesting to watch and there always cute. Everything is like an adventure when watching them. And there all really creative and funny. And there image is really good, and it not fake like most pop groups. I really admire that, and the honesty and there up beat and positive personalities.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Ue Kara Mariko  :inlove:  :twothumbs :inlove:
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I really have liked J-pop 2 years ago but I never really made it an obsession until last December. Ever since I was a kid, whenever I have vacation, Japan is always where I am because my dad works there as an engineer and brother studies there. I saw AKB48 on Music Station live, they were just awesome.
Reason why you like AKB48: Everything. The girls, the music, the TV shows and everything else. They're all full of personality, some are very interesting (like Mayu o.O). Whenever I see them in videos of AKBingo, performances and such, I see that they dont treat what they do as a job, but as a lifestyle, a way to enjoy, like leisure time. I think they enjoy what they do, and I know that is true. They give their full effort and energy for their fans.

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I've known AKB since 2010, I think. But I'm still not a fan that time. I mean, I just saw them and that's it. I did not do further research about them. Then last August 2011, two of my friends introduced me more of AKB. At first I did not care much because I'm a fan of SCANDAL band and I think I just have to focus on one group. But then, they caught my attention and I came to like them especially Yuko. :D I just loved her bubbly personality.
Reason why you like AKB48: I like their songs because they can really catch my attention and listen carefully to it. I also like their personalities, image, and each of them are interesting.  XD

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Sakura no Shiori
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan:
Took Japanese language classes in college, but didn't use it very often. A little bit later, I decided to refresh my Japanese. Since the best way is
immersion, I just started watching a lot of Japanese programming (dramas/movies/variety shows) and listening tons of music. Caught a lot of
AKBingo eps and eventually got hooked on their music after it getting stuck in my head so many times. My stumbling onto AKB48 was pretty much by
accident.

Reason why you like AKB48: Well, their music is catchy, usually easy to understand (the reason I started listening to them was to keep my Japanese fresh) and really, nothing like it exists. You have members branching off into dramas, film, solo-projects etc... It's almost like a minor-league for female Japanese talent. To me, the whole concept is simply fascinating.

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Some time after River came out, I discovered the song and slowly started paying attention to them.  From there, I went looking through their discography and honestly, I didn't really like most of their songs.  That was until I found, Iwake Maybe and Oogore Diamond.  At this point, I was just a casual fan of their music.  What pushed me over the edge to become an AKB48 fan was when I saw the dodgeball segment on AKBINGO.  One of the funniest things I've seen. 
Reason why you like AKB48: They're just plain AWSOME!

Though I would say I'm more of a SKE fan because of Nishishi. :V

I'm still quite new to know them well, but I can't totally ignore their sense of humor in every show they were in, how baka are they (sorry) in AKBingo, Shuukan AKB, how my favorite team MINI (Takamina and Yuko) keep amusing people around them.

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Hmm, good question. I had heard about them for a long time, but didn't really get into them until I was going on my first trip to Japan in 2010. I failed to understand how to see a show then, so just hung around the Don Quixote building. I kept more up to date with AKB48 after that, but I guess I was more a "casual" fan until my second trip to Japan (in 2011). This time I learnt how to get tickets and managed I saw one of the first Team 4 shows. This is where Paruru won me over. Since then, I guess I've made the transition into being a "hardcore" fan.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: River! River! River!
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Around April last year thanks to my friend posting videos of AKB girls like Takamina and Mariko doing silly things on AKBINGO on my Facebook wall. Then I saw the PV for River and my heart was willingly stolen. (I'm a sucker for military-concept PVs.)
Reason why you like AKB48: To be honest, when friends ask me that, I always answer because they are idiots and I like my idols stupid. This is of course said with no ill intention. I love them because they are not perfect and are not afraid to do random and silly things for entertainment. It's amazing to watch them grow, e.g., loli Mayuyu to not-a-girl-not-yet-a-woman Mayuyu. However, when they perform, they give their all and it shows. Plus, their concerts are damn fun to watch thanks to the mix and calls. Last but not least, so many different girls with unique personalities and talents! And I can actually tell them apart unlike K-pop artistes :V

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I was chatting with my brother, then suddenly he gave me a youtube link. I clicked it and I saw Everyday, Katyusha. I was playing a game so I was impatiently waiting for the song to start. The intro was so long, that it made me close youtube. Then my brother gave me a youtube link to Heavy Rotation. I was young so my mind was clean and I don't really want sexy girls. When I saw Yuko, in bras? I don't know what you call them. I closed youtube immediately and I told my brother, "Eww". I didn't like it because of the sexy stuff. So my brother didn't mind me anymore and I continued what I was doing.  But then It suddenly came into my mind, and I said "Why would I criticize the video, If I didn't watch it full?". So I watched the video and then I realized that they were really cute and their songs are very fun to hear. They have nice rhythms and they are not boring to listen too. So I listened to more of their songs and that's when I fell in  :heart: with AKB. I am a very very very big fan of AKB. Also their sister groups like SKE and NMB. I am always listening to their songs and I even let my classmates hear them. I also watch their variety shows and they are very funny. :) My older sister is also starting to like AKB. :D
Reason why you like AKB48: They are cute, they have best singers, and they have nice personalities. They help people especially the Tsunami that happened in Japan. They sang for them and they also gave stuff. :) They are funny, and they are idols you can meet. I didn't meet one member though. :(

I'm new here, and I hope I did well in this post.  :sweatdrop:

Absolute Favourite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: I'm crying from Team A 6th Stage. I like that electropop.

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: This will be a long story. I started watching anime last year, which made me quite interested in Japanese stuff. Moreover I was a casual gamer, and I play League of Legends. A champion was released which had an AKB48 dance in January this year.

Shyvana - AKB48 River Dance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm_6n97AbwI#normal)

I wanted to find out where that song came from, and the uploader was very nice to put the PV link in his description, and I was taken in by AKB48 almost immediately. I started looking through the other videos on the official Youtube site, and once I heard their team songs, I became addicted to AKB48.

Reason why you like AKB48: Unlike other American bands (which was what i listened to) that release a few nice songs, which I would like them for a short amount of time, then lose interest, AKB48 never failed to give me more and more interesting content, through their countless number of songs, variety shows, and mechandise (which can be found at the AKB48 Shop & Cafe in Singapore). If I was looking for cute girls, any girl group would have been good enough, but girls that dance well, sing well, entertain well, and look really good? And SO MANY OF THESE GIRLS? It was a thrilling experience getting to know them, and I'm still very happy about knowing them till today

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan : Early December 2011. I was in Japan, then I saw an AKB perf in Music Station, then boom. Knew SKE, NMB, and HKT through them, and I'm starting to like SKE more than AKB. :nervous I'm also a hardcore League of Legends gamer (been playing for 2.5 years already). How does that relate? :
Shyvana - AKB48 River Dance - League of Legends (LoL) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm_6n97AbwI#ws)
Loving Jungle Shyvana. Fast clear speed with great bush ganks. Hate the lack of CC though. BTW for those playing in the PH server there, add me, LST FrozenTears :)
Reason why you like AKB : They've got energy. They've got nice songs (most are being thrown to SKE though). They've got a strong fan community. They've got personality. They're transparent in a way (G+ and blog). They've got enough to keep me in the fandom  :thumbup

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Boku dake no Value (for today it will be this song, maybe tomorrow another)
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Last year because of people I followed on Twitter. They were ALWAYS talking about AKB so I decided to take a look at AKBINGO and I fell in love.
Reason why you like AKB48: I think they are all so amazing. First, I'm in love with their songs. I love most of them and I can't stop listening to AKB everyday and it makes it easier since they release songs almost every month. You're never bored.
Then, one of the main reason is the large number of members. As a whole, that looks scary and boring. But when you take a look at each of them, it becomes really interesting. I could describe why I love each of them individually but it would be long. And I don't know, I almost love all of them. I'm not too fond of the Kenkyuusei but some stood out for me already, I'm not narrow-minded. Except for them, I know all the members (at least their names and faces). I may not love the 67 members but maybe... 50~55 ? Sometimes I like saying bad things about Ranran for example, but actually I like her and I want her to succeed and I'm happy to see her whenever she is.
Moreover, I love how they work as a group. That side isn't shown very often for the Senbatsu because they have a looooot of solo works but I like when they go back to the theater and practise with their teams. It's cool and fun. I want them to be all friends with each other, they are so lucky to have so many people around them.
Finally, I kinda like the competition even if it may be hard for some. I will always remember the day of the General Election live on YT. It was so intense. I was both sad (poor Lovetan baby) and happy (Mayuyu darling, congrats), so many feelings in a short period of time. It was awesome. I like that kind of feelings.
They are all amazing, I hope they'll all acheive their dreams but for me they are all doing a great job at this moment. If it could continue forever, that would be so perfect.

Reason why you like AKB48: This girls changed me. I was just quiet and shy and by seing how every one of them work hard to improve themselves made me want to get better myself. What hook me up was the happinnes and the energy they shown everytime I saw them.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Blue Rose. I get a hard time to decide but, Blue Rose is the answer.
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: copied from the similar thread because I'm to lazy too write it down Well, this story began on second half of 2010 if I'm not mistaken. That was just an ordinary boring day of me browsing through my facebook news feed. Because my bored level is makusu haai tenshon, I opened all the link shared by my friends, I watched almost all videos shared by my friends on my News Feed. After watching several videos, I watched AKB48 - Beginner PV (The uncut one. Where our precious idol is being killed by those crappy games or whatever its called ) After I listened to the song, the only sentences I can think "well, that is a really good song. What's their name? AKB48? 48 Members huh?" Then my curiousity bring me to google and search for the other song such as : Heavy Rotation, RIVER, Kimi no Koto ga Suki Dakara, BINGO, and Aitakatta. But, I'm not really into them back then.

Then the story changed when the Fire Nation attack.... Ups, I wrote a wrong sentence
Ok, when I read my Twitter's Timeline there are some hashtag that bother me (I almost forgot the sentence but i think its "JKT48andPocariSweat" or things like that) That time, the 1st generation of JKT48 was announced and had their first CM with Pocari Sweat. It make me think "What's this? JKT48? I think I had heared this 48 things before" AND..... My curiousity take me once again, I watched Heavy Rotation PV once again, then browse through AKB48's Youtube Channel. Visit Stage48.net. Download and Watched Majisuka Gakuen 1 & 2 only in 3 days (and, because of this drama I found my first precious oshi, Takajo Aki a.k.a Akicha).

After that, on February 25th 2012, AKB48 have their first live in Jakarta, Indonesia. I watch them live for the first time. And on February 26th, during an event in Plaza Senayan, i found another precious girl. Another girl that I think "worth to support". Yup, Kojima Natsuki. XD

And that's how I fall into this deep ocean
Reason why you like AKB48: The number of members. I mean, look, there are so many of them! When there's no new update about your favorite member, there are still lot of member to see. Make you never bored in this fandom. Yeah, at least for me :lol:

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]:Beginner
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I watched the anime when it aired back in spring last year and I liked it very much. I didn't think of it much then, but when I was looking around some weeks later to listen to the songs again, I found out they actually were a real group and after that I've become a big fan. During this time, I suddenly remember a episode from Otaku Verse-Zero, where Patrick and Asakawa Yuu were interviewing some of the AKB-members. But honestly, for being a AKB-fan, I don't really know much about them, which gives me a hard time picking a favorite team and group/subgroup. One thing I know for sure, is that I LOVE the song "Beginner" and "Aikatta" the most. I also don't know who my favorite member would be, but it would probably be Mayu. Without thinking on the anime, the first member and/or graduated member I learned the name of, was Acchan and that is thanks to Pauekn. There was this video I liked where Acchan and 3 other girls perform "Cherry Boy" for a music video. Pauekn helped me with the name of one of the girls, Acchan ^.^ Well, this is my story.
Reason why you like AKB48: Resons, heh. They got catchy songs.. And they are cute ^.^ Well, as I just wrote on the previous one, I honestly don't know much about AKB.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: 少女たちよ

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Was in Tokyo during the 2011 Sousenkyo and my friend and I were wondering why all the news coverage was about a bunch of girls lined up, making speeches, and crying like crazy. Fast forward to around the Janken tournament and I somehow came across Ariyoshi AKB Kyowakoku where they were covering the event. Saw Yuko's "King of Sexy Janken" and she instantly became my oshi. Once Mayuyu began to shed her CG image and presented her true nature, I also made Mayuyu my oshi. The fact that these 2 got together to form the most powerful duo for having fun blew my top off. I'm really a DD, I do love so many girls. But Oshiri Sisters are far and away ahead of anyone else.

Reason why you like AKB48: AKB is built upon being interesting. The foundation of "Idols you can meet" is completely unique. Member elections, janken tournaments, team shuffles, the surprises, the struggles, the effort, etc, etc. Having so many cute girls that look very unique and showcasing their true personalities.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: River
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Prepare yourself, it's a long story. :nervous

The truth is, I discovered AKB COMPLETELY by accident.
May 2012 was when it began. As we were working on the school musical, I was bitten by the acting bug. I was also very into mystery :deco: (Here it comes!)
After really getting into the Detective Conan series, I wound up watching the live-action drama. And, BOOM! ..."She" appeared.
Her portrayal of Sonoko was good, (me ignoring the fact her hair was long and her bulky body,) and she was very, VERY cute :heart: ! Then, I saw her name appear in the credits of the 3rd live-action SP.
My reaction: "Sayaka Akimoto from AKB48." AKB48?  :? ...That sounds familiar.
Then, after watching the first episode of AKB0048, I saw a few Sayaka scenes from AKBINGO and saw a cooler, more powerful side to her.
Ever since, whether it was AKBINGO, Majisuka Gakuen, a drama or variety show, or just her powerful voice singing, I screamed her name without fail.

After learning more about her and the group, I grew closer to becoming a Twin Tower fan. Then, I saw the Kagekidan...
OH! MY! GOD! :inlove: When I saw Sayaka-chan, who I always saw as a tomboy with a girl's heart, as Ruka, I fell more in love with her. And, it also led me to loving Takamina and Yukirin. :wub: :wub: I also saw different situations with Sayaka, Sae, and Yuko and eventually loved Yuko, too (calling her Chris or "Korisu.") Then, everything else I loved about AKB fell into place, and Sayaka reigned supreme as my kami-oshi.

Reason why you like AKB48: They're style is different from anything I've seen before, and it always changes.
Also, I do like it when they act all frilly and cute, but I honestly like their cooler style and songs better.

Knew them since 2009, due of RIVER and watching Mendol, but not really interested in them as group.
Reason why you like AKB48: They are so different and unique in their own way, and I think they are good rolemodels. You don't have to be perfect nor follow others' expectations to shine on your own.

Favorite AKB48 Group/Subgroup: Not Yet
Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Sakura no Hanabira-tachi
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: Ashura was just trolling around with some of his friends and his senpai, who's oshimen was Paruru, introduced him to AKB48. At first Ashura listened to [Baby, Baby, Baby] but didn't liked it very much. After trolling around some more, he found a song named [RIVER]. Ashura listened to it and some translations and felt touched. Ashura actually doesn't like J-Pop much at that time since it reminded em of K-Pop but after trying hard, searching for some good songs, lives, etc that Ashura's senpai recommended, he began to like AKB a little, and that's when Ashura found AKBINGO!! and Ashura fell in love with Acchan QwQ
Reason why you like AKB48: Simple. You like what you like. There's no reason. But if there was, it's probably because Ashura felt really close and touched with the members, unlike when he listened to K-pop. And also the because he loves the members (Except Takamina. Don't ask) and wants to support them in any way he can >A<. After Ashura gets his credit card. SOON! OAO

After reading a few fan fictions from Black Gekikara's blog, I watched the drama just so I was able to understand who the characters are. I soon realized that it was based on an idol group. However... I ended up watching Kataomoi Finally by SKE48 first. But I soon figured out that there were multiple groups and thus got into the 48 Group from listening to more of their famous songs (RIVER, Aitakatta, Sakura no Hanabaritachi, etc.)

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan:Got hooked after watching JKT's Heavy Rotation then search for AKB version and fell for AKB more instead of JKT~
Reason why you like AKB48: Unlike K-pop girlband, we watched how AKB grew. Most K-pop artists went and do plastic surgery and completely change their appearance. AKB doesn't (Accept for Iwata Karen's emergency surgery), they just go with what they have. Takamina, Yuko, and Ume with their heights for example. Next, despite the lack of fans they have ages ago, they refused to give up on their path and walk steadily until it reached it's 8 years soon. They do take their future seriously in AKB, and it's great to see lot's of determined people like that :D

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Tomo yo
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan:
AKB0048 was an amazing anime that despite being awkward, in truth I fell in love with Kumi's character, Makoto(0048), and Shawako's character, as well as Kanata(0048), I kind of disliked the main character, but I ended up searching up AKB48. I found that they had a bunch of otaku's in the group so I was happy like a little kid. Well, since Heavy Rotation being the 2nd AKB PV I saw, it scarred me the first time I saw it... because I was used to ecchi manga.. But not real gravure type things... Well, eventually, I got bored since anime took too much time to watch and manga wouldn't load. Thus, AKBingo because it seemed interesting. Yeah, it was interesting so I marathon ed like 150 episodes in a month or two. (not really marathoning...) And then I found Majisuka Gakuen, couldn't watch the horribleness at first, but then I fell in love~ That was when I started to learn the people's names... yeah, had trouble telling them apart at first~ The end... (not really, but that's basically it.)
Reason why you like AKB48:
They're cute, they have good songs, they can dance, they have interesting personalities, some of them are weirdos, some of them have horrible fashion, some are baka, but they basically all do their best even if they aren't as cute as Mayuyu.

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Kaze wa Fuiteiru
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: The lyrics of "Kaze wa Fuiteiru" caught my attention when they performed it on Music Station sometime in Oct 2011. I was going through a rough patch at my former job, and the words just struck a chord. I then went online to look up their other releases, and was thrilled to find a lot of songs filled with words of encouragement.
Reason why you like AKB48: Generally, I like songs that contain words such as "ganbare" and "kibou". I guess I like AKB48 because the underlying theme is one of perseverance and hope.

I download it when i search in youtube japan artist Tohoshinki pv. and i start like and searching more the pv of AKB48.. But, bcz I broken heart cz member of THSK are out of the group. so I become more fokus on AKB48 World.. After that I become so CAPTIVATED by SKE48.! Honestly, i'm kind girl that more tomboyish. So They make me thinking THIS WHAT IDOL GROUP IS, cool, energic, and so cheerful. So, I become FSKE48 and oshihen from Mayuyu to Matsui Rena. Bcz of her Weaknes makes me feel want to protect her. Beside I feel SO MUCH fans of Mayuyu.... More I look,, More I LOVE MATSUI RENA.!! How she act, so kawaii, yet so adorable.

Reason why you like AKB48: They shine from their Character. And I Like how they open their personality to fans, or to entertain people. Bcz so many Artist not showing their true image.... And I Like it...

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: Sakura no Ki Ni Narou
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: When Kusumi Koharu from Morning Musume graduated in 2009 and RIVER hit #1 in Oricon I started to really look into AKB48. Heavy Rotation was a turn off at that time but Sakura no Ki Ni Narou was just so beautiful both in song and PV it was a turning point.
Reason why you like AKB48: There's just so many songs and its impossible not to like one or a 100, Aki-P rules! Personally, beyond the looks, its probably the trials the members went through that strengthens the bond between the fans and the idols. The fans can see their struggle and however messed up they are, they don't give up, and that simply inspires the fans to continuously support their oshi. Being a fan of the group is really costly but the fact that it satisfies your want while giving support to your oshi somehow makes it a fair exchange.

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: about 8 months ago. my good friend was getting into akb48 again and she dragged me along with her x'D i liked "beginner" and "heavy rotation" when they came out and thought tomochin was really cute, but it was only recently i was exposed to their hilarious personalities! i've been following kpop for five years, however, akb48 (and nogizaka 46 :p) has a really special quality that keeps me interested <3
Reason why you like AKB48: entertaining personalities/shows, fun and inspiring songs, cute girls, cute girls crossdressing!!, and sweet friendships

Absolute Favorite AKB48 Song [ONE ONLY]: really hard so i'll just put one at random, UZA
When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: I already knew a bit about them before but only really started getting into them last year. I started checking out there music videos on their official youtube page and slowly got into them. The big factor I would say was AKBINGO! which I found to be really hilarious that I got addicted to it at first where I would spend hours nonstop watching episodes. It was a great way to get to know the members individually where you could see their character and personality apart from being in a group.
Reason why you like AKB48: awesome catchy and cool songs, really cute girls, really funny watching them in variety shows, I just like everything about them, there is just so many things going on with the whole 48 group from music to tv shows, dramas etc.. I just can't get enough, they're too awesome

When/how did you become an AKB48 fan: wow I've said this many times in other threads haha.
