As stated from the title, AKB48 Jikan Terebi (AKB 48 Hours Television) will air continuously for 48 hours of AKB48 goodness from Variety shows, Dramas, Group Concerts; every program that is 48 related.

The show will air on the Family Gekijo channel part of Tohokushinsha Film who produces big-shot movie such as Sadako 2 3D and Space Battleship Yamato. This event is designed to rival to the annual 24-hour television.

The program will officially start on 8th of August 21:00 JST and continously broadcasting 48′s goodness until 11th of August 21:00 JST.

The first program to be aired is A1 [Party ga Hajimaru yo], as a part of the portion of Omoidaseru no Kimitachi he (For Those Who Missed). The stages that will be aired sum up to 32 stages and contains all stages performed by all the teams, including the sister groups.
What do you guys think?

Do you think you can you survive all 48 hours of 48′s goodness?

Just a note, it's not actually "rivaling" 24hr TV, as it airs a couple of weeks before it, I'm pretty sure the rivaling is meant more in terms of becoming a huge marathon event. Not even 28hr TV, Fuji TV's event, would dare to air at the same time as a huge charity event.-exdream1999

Thanks exdream1999 for the clear clarification.

Please note this is a day after Mariko's graduation show, and so they've marked the team name just as "Team A" instead of "Shinoda Team A"

AKB48 will start livestreaming theatre shows for DMM.com AKB48 monthly subscribers starting from Mariko's graduation show. Previously LODs were only available after 11pm on the night of the show.



http://ameblo.jp/akihabara48/entry-11575915595.html

Monthly subscribers will also be able to choose fixed-single-camera-LOD or the usual multi-angle. And they will be viewable on smartphones.
One-off single LOD purchasers can only get the usual multi-angle LODs.

They said they'd start livestreaming HKT48 LODs soon, too (SKE and NMB already have livestreaming).

AKB48's Takahashi Minami to sing the theme song for "The Smurfs 2" Japan release

As previously announced, AKB48 member Takahashi Minami will lend her voice for the Japanese dubbed version of "The Smurfs 2". To follow up on the news, it was recently revealed that she will also be singing the theme song for its Japan release.

The title of the theme song is "Hitomi no Tobira", and it is written by AKB48's general producer Akimoto Yasushi. It is said to be a summer-like song with the refreshing acoustic guitar sound.

The song will be included in Takahashi's 2nd solo single as a coupling song, and it is scheduled for release sometime in this fall.

Takahashi said, "I am truly happy to be able to sing the theme song for the Japan release, in addition to voicing for Smurfette. It is a bright song that matches well with 'The Smurfs 2', so I want everyone to sing together, and have fun!"

Prior to the release of the movie, it will also be available as a Chaku-Uta ringtone starting on July 28th.

"The Smurfs 2" is set to open in theaters in Japan on August 16th.
