New Member In AKB48 Is A Fake?!

Eguchi Aimi is a new member of the AKB48 family! But who could have known she was a fake?!

It was announced that Aimi will be participating in handshake events and also to become the 12.5 generation of AKB48. Rumors have stirred up in Japan's 2CH discussing this newly surfaced idol. She had already graced the cover of Playboy magazine But counter rumors also appeared with the internet saying she is a CGI idol created for the purpose of advertising for Glico's new candy. Some people also decided that she was a composition of Takahashi Minami, Watanabe Mayu, Maeda Atsuko, Oshima Yuko, Shinoda Mariko and Itano Tomomi.

Check out the website with her profiles and also application form!

What do you guys think?

*As of this moment when this article was written, most of the rumors had confirmed she was indeed a CGI idol.

    So yeah, it turns out she was indeed CG.
    They've also released a tool to create a CG idol from the individual parts of other member's faces (fair/face shape, eyes, nose, mouth). It's pretty fun - kinda makes me realise how hard it is to make a natural looking face, let alone a pretty one. Nature's pretty amazing :p

    She looks like a doll-and I don't mean in a positive way. If AKB48 is trying to reel in more fans, then this sure was a poor marketing strategy.

    interested this!

    In a group of 48, I wouldn't even notice if one was missing let alone just a fake.

    i honestly don't understand why they would do this... is this some kind of marketing strategy? if so, then who gets popular out of this? it's definitely a way to get attention.. but it's for someone who is not even real... i don't get it >.<

  • Posted by altak · 214 Jpops · 5 years ago  

    Certainly interesting...
