Considering that the "Minami" character was dead in the first Majisuka Gakuen, I'm wondering if this one is supposed to be a reboot/retcon?

SayaMilky might be enough to get me to watch this one. :p

I was thinking that too about Minami, but then Otabe is there too, but it could be an alternate Otabe, I'm just wondering if Torigoya, Black, Nezumi, Center, and any other old char that are still in AKB Group will be in it

No idea about previous characters, though I wouldn't complain if there was a Gekikara sighting at some point. :)

If this series follows what they've done in the previous 3, there's bound to be other members popping in (even if it's just for one episode or two) as it progresses.

I can't wait for this and this might be the show that will bring back the that feel I had for J-Drama because recently the drama I watch all 99.9% K-Drama

I kind of think it's like a continuation from season 2 since Yuihan reprised back as Otabe. Somehow it seems like Sakura's taking Acchan's path and Paruru as Salt is like another version of Yuko.

Matsuda Kota reveals during an online press conference that Tsunku had his vocal cords surgically removed and can no longer speak.
- https://twitter.com/haro_wota/status/557591288925925376


I'm not sure if I've mentioned this in the past here, but for anyone not in the know, Tsunku is the lead singer of the Japanese band Sharan Q/Sharam Q and over the last 10-15 years, has been known as one of the main songwriters and producers for Morning Musume and other groups/singers under the Hello!Project banner (similar to what Akimoto Yasushi is/has been for the girls that are part of the *48 Group). As far back as 2008, Tsunku has been having throat issues that have affected his ability to sing, and in more recent years he had been diagnosed with throat cancer. There was a time when it appeared that it was in remission, but however this past October, he got news that it had returned. Obviously, it has now progressed to the point where this drastic action has had to be taken to save his life.

At the risk of sounding depressing and/or melodramatic, it's a tragedy when a singer loses his/her voice. Hopefully this is the farthest/most drastic that this situation will go for Tsunku.

Former Morning Musume leader Takahashi Ai, Takahashi Yu (Aso Yuri from Kamen Rider Kiva) and the latter's equally hawt sister Takahashi Maryjun (from the Kikaider reboot movie and the second & third Rurouni Kenshin movies) as part of "Team Takahashi" on this week's episode of VS嵐.

Observant people will also notice that near the end of the show, the Dekaranger OP is used as background music. :)

SKE48 - Sekai ga Naiteru Nara(If the World is Crying), B-side from AKB48's single "Green Flash".
I also spotted the detective guy who also portrayed as Dr.Maki from Kamen Rider OOO.

I can't believe that my Team A oshimen Ricchan is graduating from the group.
http://tokyogirlsupdate.com/rina-kawaei-graduation-akb48-20150340309.html
It is announced that Rina Kawaei is going to graduate from AKB48. The announcement was made during AKB48's concert at Saitama Super Arena on March 26th and fans almost screamed for the sadness to hear it. She didn't mention the graduation date, but we assume it will be after May 20th, as she is "senbatsu" member for the 40th single "Bokutachi was Tatakawanai".

As I said on another forum, the saddest thing about it is that she's basically admitted that "the incident" has traumatized her to the point where she can no longer emotionally bring herself to participate in handshake events. If it weren't for that, who knows how much longer it may have been before she would have even considered graduating from the group.

At least she's found a new goal that she wants to aim for (becoming an actress). With any luck, the fandom won't be rid of her that easily.

I hope she'll get a graduation song. I'm guessing that her last AKB single will be either the upcoming 40th or the 41st single.
