I don't owe him a damn thing. He has my MasterCard on file. :doh:

Seriously though, gotta hand it to the guy... he's put together one kickass group, and he knows how to market market market.

I think, one of these days, I'll start having my paycheck direct deposited into his bank account.  XD

I find it amusing that his thread is in the "Girls threads" section.

Good god... looking over his cv at Jpop Stop! has just convinced me that he does not have a room full of monkeys constantly typing out songs for AKB and SKE.

He has written for a few Johnny's groups (Kinki Kids most notably), the grandfather and grandmother of music (Yazawa Eikichi & Wada Akiko), comedy groups, Takada Junji, JERO's big breakthrough hit Umiyuki, EXILE, 'godfather' Go Hiromi, and those are only the ones I know!

He does not need the whole AKB thing, that's how much awesome he is. He probably smokes all those dollar bills you guys give him...

Yeah, he doesn't really need AKB, but maybe he likes the whole cute girls prancing around deal :lol:

Maybe one day we'll see him pose with just flowers covering his junk..

Yes! He's like some James Bond villain. It's will not be enough to have a harem of 'normal' women surround him 24/7. His girls must be nurtured over time and lust over by other men/wota before they can even be in the same room with him...

Maybe one day we'll see him pose with just flowers covering his junk..
Nah. That's more of Tsunku's thing.

So Aki-P won an award.

AKB48 producer wins Shin Watanabe Award
Wed, March 3, 2010 (12:08am EST)

The 5th Shin Watanabe Award, given every year to recognize a producer's contributions to the entertainment industry, was formally presented on Tuesday. This year's honoree was lyricist/director/producer Yasushi Akimoto (53), who created the idol group AKB48.

AKB48 has become tremendously popular not only in Japan, but also overseas as well. Last year, the group held performances in Paris and New York.

He definitely deserves it, you only have to look at his myriad of works.

yep, i was watching the Another Sky SP featuring AKi-P and AKB48, and during the course of the interview, i guess i figured also why Aki-P chose NYC as the location of AKB48s first american concert. NYC has been special to him since he was already there producing films ever since 1981 (example is a film for John Lennon's wife, Yoko Ono)

^ :rofl: That's just not right

Apparently Yuko was depressed before when she first sang Nakinagara Hohoende 'cuz some of the audience started nodding off. :smhid And so this vid shows what AkiP told her that led to being confident enough to stand on the stage again and perform the song.
