Nope, this isn’t the live action cast of the students in Negima. AKB48 is a super-sized pop girl group in Japan that started in a theater in Tokyo’s Akihabara section. There’s three teams within the group (A,K,B) with 16 girls per team, and “research” girls who have the opportunity to make their way up the ranks to the main teams. Plus, there are multiple sub-groups that have spawned, including Not Yet, French Kiss and Itano Tomomi’s solo single. There are also other “48” girl groups in Nagoya (SKE48) and Osaka (NMB48). What does this all mean? Well for one, somebody’s making a shitload of money off these girls, but also that AKB48 has finally hit the mainstream music industry in Japan in a big way.
