On their last Tokyo Dome Concert, it was announced that the General Manager of AKB48, Takahashi Minami will have a Solo Debut. It is set to release under the NAYUTAWAVE RECORDS this coming spring 2013. Even though the title is still untitled, it is set to be the opening theme song of Fuji TV's upcoming drama "Saki" starring Nakama Yukie. The drama will be aired on January 8. It is said that the song will be dramatic and emotional rock ballad.

She stated, "It is time for my dream to be a solo singer that I have wished for a long time to come true. I know this would not have been possible without the fans who have trusted, and waited for me. Thank you very much. Though I feel little anxious that AKB48 members are not around me, I would like to put my all into the song, so my heart would reach to all of you"

Akimoto Yasushi commented, "Takamina has been leading the AKB48 group while encouraging the members that ‘your effort never goes unrewarded.’ Now it’s time to prove it by your own self as the general manager. Alright Takamina. We are ready for your solo debut"

Maeda Atsuko's Horror Film

It was posted before that Maeda Atsuko will star on a Horror Film that will be on theaters next year. This movie is entitled Kuroyuri Danchi or The Complex which was directed by Hideo Nakata. 


Nursing student Asuka (Atsuko Maeda) has just moved into an apartment complex with her parents and younger brother. On the first night in her new room, she is awoken by a strange scratching sound coming from the apartment of her neighbor, a reclusive old man who has refused all attempts at communication. Concerned over his well being, Asuka enters his home only to find him dead from malnutrition. Worse, it looks as if he had been trying to claw his way into her room. Asuka learns that there have been a number of strange deaths in the complex over the years from Shinobu (Hiroki Narimiya), the handyman cleaning up the old man’s apartment. Even the girls at school whisper rumors of it being haunted. When the late night scratching returns, Asuka ventures back into her neighbor's home and comes face to face with an apparition of the old man! Panicked by the discovery of her apartment emptied and her family gone, Asuka seeks help from Shinobu, who brings in a spiritualist to exorcise Asuka of the evil surrounding her. However, as she delves into the girl's predicament, the spiritualist discovers that signs points not to the old man but to a small boy living in the complex with a past as tragic as the one Asuka herself lives in denial of.

*At last! After a long time! Acchan will perform again in a music show >.< I wonder what she will sing >.< I will just lie if I will not say that I'm hoping for a new single. LOL but I guess she will just sing Migikata or Kimi wa Boku da.
One last thing that I'm hoping for is some pictures from our great Mariko-sama XD I'm sure they will gather all together since AKB will also perform on the said show >.<*
