The AKB48 English Thread
because Japanese idols and English is always full of win
The first time I heard any of them speak English was on TomoTomo's podcasting show, talking about the sort of food they like:Download TomoTomo in English!
Then there was Oshima Yuko who had some English lines in one of the drama's she did. I can't recall the name of the drama, nor find the vid on YT, must've been removed. However, I managed to find an audio clip:Download Oshima Yuko in English!
They talked some English on the Nemousu Season 3 eps 4 and 5 (?) when they made the different PVs for River.
Then there was the 091211 Shukan AKB episode in which TomoTomo, Rie and Acchan spoke English!Download
And of course there are various clips from the NY and LA concerts in which they introduce themselves in English. Haruna went to a drugstore. Excellent.
And more English on DVD Magazine Vol 3.
Who has the best skills? Akimoto definitely impressed on all the occasions... who else?
Feel free to post more clips and sound-bites!
