Akimoto Sayaka Steps Down As AKB48’s Team K Captain

It has been a day since the news broke out that Akimoto Sayaka, AKB48’s Team K Leader had resigned from her position. It was because of the recent scandal that broke out with Hiroi Ouji, a musical/play director. The scandal was about seeing them together, going to each others houses and actually staying for a long time. The sound of the accusation of them sleeping together because of this arose and it not only affected Akimoto Sayaka personally but also her career. With the explanations going on, it was taken note that there were no sexual relationship with the two but pure business. According to Sayaka from her message on ALL NIGHT NIPPON (shown below + translations), she was only asking Ouji to help with her acting.

“I am responsible for the earlier report about the rumor with Hiroi Ouji-san. He is the stage director who I respect, I have asked Hiroi-san for help on stage performance of “Izumi Kyouka” since this summer. I’ve been to his house, and he has been to my house. I did not think anything of it, because Hiroi-san lives with his daughter, and I live with Umeda Ayaka. Moreover, since Hiroi-san is older than my father, I have never thought of him as a male. The day, we promised to have dinner together for discussions about acting, but my work finished too late, therefore he came over to my house. We kept talking about acting, but he fell asleep after a while, so I and Ume-chan decided to let him keep sleeping. I am woeful that it sounds like I’m making excuses. I’m sorry for all the fans who support me, and also for AKB members… I’m sorry. This became such a big issue, and it is all my fault. I should be the role model for other members, but I’m not qualified as a captain anymore. Therefore, I will resign as the captain of team K.”


Nothing seemed wrong to the two on doing this kind of business. Because on the way I see it, based on both parties sentiments, both had agreed to see each other just for Sayaka to learn more of acting. As Sayaka had said, they were both not alone in the house whenever they see each other. If they were to sleep together and all those things, they would have done it in private. In the case of Sayaka, Umeda Ayaka was with her and was the one responsible on telling Sayaka not to wake Ouji up to send him home. In the case of Ouji, he lived with his daughter.

Anyway, all is done. Each party had explained themselves and for what happened, I think Sayaka had already given herself a cruel punishment. As we can see, she is happy as the leader of Team K. She led them with all her might. That’s why we say she is “perfect” for the position and not only us fans had seen it but also every AKB48 member. In respect to Sayaka’s decision, we should keep supporting her. I will of course. ☺

To give comfort to Sayaka, loveandcoffee from Stage48, has planned a project to let Sayaka know how we support and believe in her. Please visit this link (below) to see the instructions for the sending of letters. If you don’t have a scanner, you could just type it in microsoft word, print screen, edit it a little bit in either photoscape or photoshop (add pictures, etc.) and send it to loveandcoffee. I had already sent mine and will let you guys see it as an example. For Filipino’s, please send your letters before 5:55am tomorrow.

My Letter to Sayaka

 

Sorry for the late post. I had no mental and emotional stability to write about this. I hope you guys could still get your letters done.

SCANDAL new single “Taiyou To Kimi Ga Egaku Story”

SCANDAL’s new single entitled Taiyou To Kimi Ga Egaku Story will be out on June 2 and we have the PV right here for you! Okay I’m not really sure if this is the first time I have talked about scandal in this site.

SCANDAL is so hot! Which makes me think that they should have their PB. I want to see Haruna in a swimsuit. Well anyways moving to the PV itself. I think the PV is actually fun. Especially that weird guy that pops out at the beginning and the end. The theme is summer which is coming in Japan (and ending here in the PH on the otherhand). Their outfits are totally kick-ass! You could see at some point in the video Haruna’s underwear.   Well overall I enjoyed this one especially the part with them in their casual clothings eating ice cream and lollipop.

This made me think that I haven’t had any review about the song

Well the song is lovely! I love how it matches the theme and season. The chorus is overly addicting especially when you listen to it a lot of times.

See the cute video for yourself

Kago Ai’s Man!

OMG This is like a shocking revelation for Aibon! No need to explain just watch!

Weekly Top 5 3/8-3/14

Because of the lack of voters this week, we only have a Top 5 rather than a top 10.

So at 5 we have 6 songs which are tied! yes 6!

They are

Our Song – Buono!

Otona ni Narutte Muzukashi – S/mileage

Shigatsu Sengen – C-ute

Miracle Happy Love Song – Buono!

Genki Pikka Pikka – Morning Musume

Shock – C-ute (yes apparently Shock is still in the countdown)

at 4 we have Kara with their ultra mega super duper hit single Lupin

(yes that’s from today’s Inkigayo! which results will be posted after this one)

at 3 we have Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda by Berryz Kobo

Okay can you believe this! I read the weirdest Berryz NEWS ever!

Apparently Akanishi Jin from KAT-TUN (yes that JE group) was rumored to be courting (I refuse to say the word “dating”) Berryz Kobo member Tokunaga Chinami a few years back (back when Chinami was about 14…maybe 4 years ago).

Yes if you’re familiar with that, I got that from the Odd one out Thread at H!O

at 2 we SNSD with Oh!

Yes like in Music Bank, Oh has been finally eclipsed at the top spot this week! But don’t worry with a new single next week, who knows maybe they’ll reclaim the spot.

AND at NUMBAH 1! Yes it’s Berryz and it’s Otakebi Boy Wao

The song has been on the top 10 for week’s now even before the PV was released. And today they claim the top spot SOLO! yes they are the first ever group to claim the top spot solo. For week’s the top spot is occupied by two or more groups. Congratulations to Berryz
