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
, 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
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.
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.
