While K-Pop group Brown Eyed Girls made their appearance at the Circle Nightclub in New York City, J-Pop group AKB48 finally graced over 1000 fans at Webster Hall in New York City. The group who were Guests of Honor at this years New York Anime Festival, did a mini live at the Convention Center, and held a private live at Webster Hall.

Sixteen members came to the event and surprised their fans by singing English versions of their songs, “BINGO!” and “Daikoe Diamond“.

Seeing all of you in AKB T-shirts is really surprising and over whelming. Even though there is a language barrier I am deeply moved,” said Minami.

For the encore the girls changed into “I ♥ New York” shirts, and sang four songs.

Akina praised the fans, “Everyone’s is cheers made this an exciting concert.

Sky Perfect TV will be airing the concert on 11/15 at 9PM in high definition.

Will Meisa Kuroki taking over Erika Sawajiri’s role?

Since Stardust Promotions has cancelled Sawajiri‘s contract, the topic of discussion has risen.

Meisa Kuroki has been informally offered the role of “Yuki Mori”, a role originally given to Sawajiri for the live action movie “Space Battleship Yamato“. The movie also stars SMAP member Takuya Kimura.

But today a weekly magazine released information stating that the role is back with Sawajiri, so it has caused some confusion.

The movie will start filming next month, will they be able to decide who will play this Yuki Mori before the filming starts?

Erika Sawajiri’s message

On another note, on Erika Sawajiri‘s official website, has message to everyone.

“See you at the next stage.”

Is this a retaliation? Who knows, all we know is that this girl doesn’t deserve that much hatred. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone has attitudes, had she been a normal girl, no one would gives a rats arse about it. Well we don’t either, but we all know the JPop world does.
