Honestly, I don't have any strong opinion towards Maria either way. She's cute, but I can't really recall any memorable moments from her as of yet. :nervous Tall girls are always cool, though. :thumbup

What I love about AKB48 is that there's something for everybody and Maria Abe is a perfect example of that. When Maria recently said that she doesn't even wanna be an idol my initial reaction was "WTF why is she even in AKB48?!". But.... the fact that Maria is such an anti-idol actually makes her more fascinating especially since Team 4 is full of "traditional idols". I know I wouldn't have noticed her if she was "just another perfect idol". I do think that Maria should be more positive but being so honest about her ambitions makes me respect her more. I doubt Maria will ever become super popular but I could see her becoming Team 4's "Tomochin" due to her awesome dancing skills and love for modeling. So yeah hopefully we will soon start seeing Maria in fashion magazines :)

This is probably not the place to do this but may I ask what you mean by Team 4 is full of "traditional idols"?

I mean girls you expect to see in an idol group. Maria is quite different compared to girls like Paruru, Ranran, Miorin etc.

I get what you mean, but a part of me feels she should have gone the Shihori route and leave the spot for someone who's heart is truly into it.

I do think that Maria should be more positive but being so honest about her ambitions makes me respect her more. I doubt Maria will ever become super popular but I could see her becoming Team 4's "Tomochin" due to her awesome dancing skills and love for modeling.

Yeah, she really needs to gain more confidence. Tomochin is perfect as a model because she is super confident. She just oozes attitude and that's what makes her a good model. A pretty face and nice body isn't enough. It's all about body language.

However, since she's so negative she doesn't really smile much... at least that's one feature a lot of models have on the runway  :lol:

So yeah, I'm not sure what to think of her. Hopefully she'll be like Komorin and go from shy to awesome.

Yeah, Maria definitely needs more swagger if she wants to be a successful model. It's impossible to be confident if you are all negative. Anyways Maria's only 16 so she has plenty of time to step her game up :yep:

She has the height and the frame to make most clothes look good on her.

I would love to be able to shoot her in a fashion shoot =)

After seeing Maria in DC, I've been rewatching some older episodes of shows featuring her. Gosh, she's a looker, and seems pretty alright to boot. She had a nice vibe going in DC, too.

Also: dat Blue Rose perf at the Kouhaku Taikou :rockon:

Yeah, just wanna say that I didn't really know who this girl was. I only knew of her because of her name... Abe Maria. lololol


Then I saw her in DC.  She kept catching my eye cuz she was always looking so FIERCE during the concerts.  She's cool in my book.

Opinions on her seem to be a bit mixed. Sometimes she looks good, otherwise not so much. After seeing her in that Shukan interview segment with Goto-P I was wondering what she was doing in AKB48 and I still do. Nothing against her personally, but if she wants to become a more popular girl she has to give it 200%. Team K has tons of highly ambitious girls who are going to aim for the top.

I don't know if I'm the only one but I'm personally glad that Maria was placed in Team K, ever since I saw her in the revival for K6, I just thought she fit so well.



I also love how sometimes she subs for Sayaka in UHHO UHHOHO.

Happy Birthday Abe Maria!  :twothumbs

Was always one of my faves in Team 4 and the best dancer there. Already seems to be picking up more attention in her new Team  :thumbsup

Yuria and Annin left birthday messages w/photos on their google+s
