Matsui Jurina And Watanabe Miyuki Heads To AKB48

During AKB48's second day of the Saitama Super Arena concert, an announcement was made for the transfer of Matsui Jurina and Watanabe Miyuki to AKB48.

At the end of the concert there were promotions of five members to Team 4. This completes Team 4 with 16 members.

Apart from the promotion announcement, there was also a shocking shuffle of members. One of the most popular and prominent member of SKE48, Matsui Jurina, will be joining AKB48's Team K. While another popular member of NMB48, Watanabe Miyuki will be joining AKB48's Team B.

This is only a limited time transfer and also the two girls will continue to stay in their respective group. They will continue their activities in SKE48 and NMB48 alongside AKB48's.

This announcement was shocking for the two girls as they didn't know beforehand. These two members had been very active in the single releases of their respective groups.

What do you guys think of this announcement? What is Akimoto Yasushi planning? Consider the two girls will continue to stay in NMB48 and SKE48, they will appear much more often.

    That's what make the whole fandom fun~ Tho usually it's not this bad....AkiP is trolling the hell out of us fans this week.

    Really, not so much yet. But they've still got a whole day to announce graduations and whatnot. You know it's only been 2-3 years since AKB got totally shuffled, and with team 4 now full and 8 in the works, a new shuffle is almost in order, perhaps even with the sister groups. So this is small stuff, really.

    Isn't that Matsui Jurina always appears in AKB48's music videos and singles' pictures and almost every things =..= This transfer announcement is just pointless.

    Yeah, she's been in everything except the janken ones since oogoe diamond... once king records started promoting them (the first good seller). And frankly, as I mentioned elsewhere, the "AKB" singles are more like "48" singles since the sister groups have a lot of members inserted while the reverse isn't true. Not much going on there except drama. The news about Milky is more likely to actually change anything, as it will probably get her a lot more exposure.

    Yeah..they just make it more official. Tho Miyuki info is pretty shocking.

    It's obvious what Aki-p is trying to do... They haven't been breaking records (1st week sales) for 3 singles, Aki-p thinks it's about time... especially when May, August and October usually comes their better selling singles.
