NMB48's Comedy Program
NMB48's comedy show "Geinin" will be coming the big screen, being adopted into a full length movie.

"Geinin" was a Nippon TV program that aired from July 7th to September 25th in 2012. The show's premise was that various NMB48 members featured in the program were members of an all-girls private school who were part of the school's comedy club. The girls competed to win the school's comedy championship.

Filming for the movie has already begun, though a release date has not been determined. The movie version will have the same setting and concept, but the actual story will be original.

NMB48 members Nana Yamada, Aina Fukumoto, Mayu Ogasawara, Eriko Jo, Sayaka Yamamoto and Miyuki Watanabe were all regular cast members of the show, with other members having guest appearances. Yui Yokoyama will be joining the main cast for the movie.

"This is NMB48's 1st movie, and my first movie as well, so I'm very happy. I wasn't a member of NMB48 when the original TV show aired, but I did watch the program," Yokoyama stated.

While NMB48 begins filming for the new movie, the group is also busy with the release of its 1st studio album, "Teppen Tottande!", on February 27th. After the album's release, the group will embark on a spring tour, titled "NMB48 Nishinihon Tour 2013", starting on March 4th and ending on April 5th.
