At final weekend’s “AKB48 Shanghai Fan Meeting,” a latest book of a 48-girl cocktail song sorority was introduced to a world. Shanghai-based SNH48 is a sixth in a franchise, and a third non-Japanese sister group, following JKT48 from Jakarta, Indonesia and TPE48 (scheduled to entrance in this summer) from Taipei, Taiwan.
Producer Akimoto Yasushi is formulation auditions for this fall, with a entrance tentatively designed for AKB48′s 7th anniversary on Dec 8th.
Kojima and other members weren’t formerly sensitive of this announcement, they also seemed only as astounded as a fans. Kojima stated, “We weren’t sensitive about this, so we are really surprised. I’m happy that we will have younger sisters in Shanghai, as well. we wish we will have some-more chances to come and go between Japan and China.”
