  1. Nothing related about the song but just wanted to mentioned that we passed by the AKB48 cafe in Akihabara and was completely flummoxed by the queues there!

  2. Thanks Lina, Yeah they are still really popular. I believe that the AKB48 Theatre still sells out every day, and tickets to the event are hard to come by due to the great demand of fans.
