Activity policy / goal / rule

AKB48 overturns the traditional idol stereotype that "you can only meet on TV or at concert venues", and since its formation, under the concept of "idols who can go to meet", high-frequency performances at dedicated theaters.・ Through thorough fan service (handshake event, photo session, etc.), we are continuing efforts to shorten the distance between idols and fans and make idols more familiar.

When AKB48 was first launched, it aimed to make a major debut.After that, as the previous title of the official blog showed, the goal was to realize a concert at Tokyo Dome, but this goal was held from August 2012th to August 8th, 24, "AKB8 in". It was achieved in "TOKYO DOME ~ 26m Dream ~".The title of the official blog was changed to "From 48m" due to the achievement of the goal.[28].

Many of the members, especially those who joined early, have the perception that "AKB48 is a passage point". Not all of them aim to be singers,actress-Fashion ModelThere are various professions to apply for. On the other hand, not a step to a singer or an actress,Amina SatoAfter (4th gen member, former member), some people clearly aim for the activity itself at AKB48.[29][30].

It is said that AKB48 has a rule of "no romance", and the members have also professed it.[31]On the other hand, Yasushi Akimoto says that it is not specified as a rule.[32].Maeda AtsukoAccording to AKB48, when he was 16 years old, he was betrayed by his lover because of his romance. It was said that AKB48 created a rule prohibiting romance.[33].

Origin of the group name

In the alphabet part of the group name "AKB48"AKBIs home ground locatedAkihabara(Akihabara,AKIHABARA) or AkihabaraAkiba(Akiba,AKIBDerived from A).48The origin of this is Yasushi Akimoto's intention, "If you enter a word such as" Onyanko ", it will become old, so I want to make it inorganic like a product development number."[34]. In the initial concept, there were 1 in 24 army + 2 in 24 army, for a total of 48[35].Tonosaki TonobuIs the office to which he was originally formedoffice48President of (Kotaro Shiba)'S favorite number is 48[Note 8]Therefore, he said that he was told to make a group of about 50 people with 48 people.[36].

When the initial recruitment announcement was made, it was labeled as "Akihabara 48 Project".[37],NTT DoCoMoRecruitment of membersTie-upIn various media at the time of indie debut, including commercials, it was sometimes called "Akihabara 48", but later the group name was also "AKB48(AKBXNUMX Forty Eight) ”was unified[Note 9]..As the name suggests, there was a long time when there were about 48 regular members.[Note 10]..Group members and mass media simply omit "AKB48"AKBMay be called or written[38][39].

Fan community

AKB48 succeeded in shortening the distance between idols and fans by setting up a dedicated theater and performing performances, but at the same time it also strengthened the ties between fans.In particular, the lobby in front of the theater functions as a space where strangers can get to know each other.OnlineEven aboveSocial networking servicesSince the emergence of people, there is a movement to use them to deepen exchanges.[41].

The management side actively takes in the opinions of the fans. When the theater wasn't crowded, the producer Yasushi Akimoto heard opinions from fans directly at the theater, and even after the hit, he was told indirectly by the staff.[42]..Especially in the early stages, the management staff had little experience in entertainment, so they received advice from fans on specific methods for ticket sales, lottery, and alignment.[43].Iwasaki NatsumiWas an assistant producer, he was strong on the internetchannel 2,BlogThe reaction of the fans about the performance written in was summarized and conveyed to Yasushi Akimoto.[44].

In response to changes in the entertainment market, the "Two Pillars Association" will be closed on December 2021, 12, and the function as a fan club will be unified into the mobile version official website "AKB31 mobile".[47].

Handshake event and purchase privilege

AKB48 holds a handshake event for CD buyers, and plays a role of fulfilling the concept of "idling to meet" as an opportunity for fans to directly shake hands and talk with members.[48]. A handshake event was held on December 2005, 12 as a substitute for a theater performance that was canceled due to equipment failure.[49], After that, it came to be carried out regularly according to the release of the CD.

There are two types of AKB48 handshake events: "national handshake event" and "large handshake event".[48]. "Nationwide handshake event" is a handshake event that is held in units of areas throughout Japan (Hokkaido, Tohoku, Kanto, Chubu, Kansai, China, Kyushu) in line with the release of the single CD.[50][Note 12]..You can freely participate in any area without prior reservation, but you need the "event participation ticket" enclosed in the single CD (first limited edition) to participate.[51]..Some members (about 20 people) participate instead of all members, and some lanes have multiple members instead of one member in one lane.[51][52]. A single title of "event participation ticket" that can be used for each holding date is specified[50][53]. Lives and events will be held on the day[51][54].

"Large handshake event" is basicallyKanto regionAt a handshake event held in (partly, Osaka City, etc.)[48], Is held for each CD release. It is also called "individual handshake event" as well as the handshake event for the sister group's theater CDs. To participate, you need the participation ticket attached to the theater board CD, apply by specifying "date", "member", "time zone" from the predetermined website before release, and draw the theater board CD by lot Make a reservation[48][Note 13]. As a general rule, not only AKB48 members but all domestic AKB48 group members participate[48], Each member is responsible for one lane[52]. The length of time allotted to each member (90-minute copies) varies. As a general rule, members should wear plain clothes. In addition to the handshake event, there are also two-shot photo sessions and autograph sessions with members who use the mobile phone's photo-taking function called "photo session".

In addition, as a "purchase privilege" on the CD, a "handshake ticket"[Note 14], "Event participation ticket" but also voting tickets for fan participation type events such as "Selection general election" and "Request hour set list best 100" may be attached.In addition, many works are accompanied by photographs of members with random patterns called "raw photographs".On the other hand, the method of providing multiple variations such as Type-A and Type-B on a CD with the same title and attaching purchase benefits is not unique to AKB48, but the Japanese music sales market including sister groups. Because it has an influence in Japan, it is commonly called "AKB Commercial CodeThere are also criticisms ("#Product variation developmentSee).


The lyrics of AKB48 songs can be roughly divided into "BINGO!""Skirt, Hirari"(Pseudo-romance lyrics (from a female perspective)", "Ponytail and Hair Tie"Love (from a man's point of view)/Youth hymn lyrics", "RIVER", "Heavy rotation", etc.Order of opportunityThere are three types of "self-referential lyrics" such as ".In the early stages, there was a classic "pseudo-romance lyrics (from a female point of view)" in the lyrics of traditional female idol songs, but the single "Oogoe Diamond" that triggered the hit was released. Around that time, they were rarely seen, and "love / youth hymn lyrics (from a male point of view)" and "self-referential lyrics" became mainstream.[56][57].

According to a description in the book "Group Idol Evolution," written by Gen Okajima and Yasuhiro Okada, the transition from the lyrics of female eyes to the lyrics of male eyes is related to changes in the fan base itself. In other words, speaking of idol fans in the traditional Japanese female idol culture, “a man who is not interested in fashion etc.Akiba systemIt tends to give the impression of being an idol otaku, but at AKB48 there are many opportunities for idols and fans to come into direct contact with each other at handshake events and theater performances. The proportion of young male and female fans who care about their appearance is also increasing. In response to this, pseudo-lovely lyrics are no longer needed so much that you can experience feelings of youth and share emotions with idols on stage through shouts.[Note 15]Is increasing[59].

Tsunehiro UnoIs "I"First personAbout the transition from the lyrics of the female perspective to the lyrics of the male perspective with "I" as the first person, the idol unilaterally presents a longing for "not here, somewhere" to the fans Instead, it means that the concept of an intrinsic idol, in which fans and idols cooperate to affirm "now and here" and to make it rich and fruitful, has started to clearly reflect the lyrics. Explaining[Note 16][61][62].. In addition, AKB48 itself is a kind of song for "self-referential lyrics" that started to increase in the latter half of the year, as well as songs for menSocial phenomenonIt is said that singing AKB48 itself with such a hit leads to singing society as it is, and that it is because the lyricist Yasushi Akimoto is aware of it.[63][64].

Saito TamakiPraised the lyrics of AKB48's song by Yasushi Akimoto as "shining remarkably in the J-POP industry that has become a despair wilderness"[65],YankeeWe pay attention to the fact that the element of "sex" is woven into the lyrics.According to it, even if you pay attention to the members of AKB48 themselvesGeekReceiveMayu WatanabeAnd receive the YankeeTomomi ItanoAlthough it is balanced that both of them exist, Akimoto himself is a peculiar type of person who has both otaku and yankee characteristics, and "Majisuka Rock n Roll" and "BeginnerThe lyrics include the Yankee-specific momentary principle.Anti-intellectualismIt is said that the balance is exquisite that you can see the consciousness that you are consciously behaving in such a way while raising a certain sense of values.[66].. This kind of consciousness is also connected to the above-mentioned "survival/battle royale" tendency.

Writer/LyricistSato UniversityWas also handled by Yasushi AkimotoOnyanko ClubWhile most of the lyrics of AKB48's songs were aimed at playing with words and receiving inner circles, the lyrics of AKB48's songs were subjective and straightforward, inspiring "what I should be". It is said that the lyrics contained in the system are an education for individual members of AKBXNUMX.[67].

Changes in AKB48 Group


Braided history

Regular members of AKB48 are supposed to belong to one of the five teams, "Team A", "Team K", "Team B", "Team 4" and "Team 8". At the AKB5 theaterTheater performanceAs a general rule, it is done in team units. In addition to this, there are members called "research students" who are not regular members. Research studentsBack dancerAnd appear in the performance as an under member of the regular members. Depending on the day, research students may occupy most of the cast.

Team division
The affiliation to each team was decided from the time of formation to the establishment of team B by the time of joining as follows.
Team A: Formed December 2005, 12-Opening Member Audition Successful (Original Member) (1 period
Mariko Shinoda is said to be "1.5 term" due to additional subscription, but it may be described as "1 term" in some media.
チームK: Formed April 2006, 4-1nd additional member audition successful candidates (2 period
Team B: Formed April 2007, 4-7nd additional member audition successful candidates (3 period) And 3 people from Team A
In subsequent auditions, all successful applicants will belong to the research student, and from among them will be promoted to regular members as appropriate and will belong to each team of A, K and B.
Research Student Audition Successful: Research Student 1st term =4 period・Research student 2nd term =5 period・Research student 3nd term =6 periodAnd so on.
Team structure enforced in 2010
2009年8月の日本武道館公演(『AKB104選抜メンバー組閣祭り』)で「新内閣の発足」が発表され、チームA・K・Bのメンバーの組み替えと一部メンバーのSDN48への完全移籍、研究生の大量昇格が行われることになる。当初2009年10月から実施の予定だったが、度々延期され、2010年になってチームKが3月12日から、チームBが5月21日から、チームAが7月27日からというように約半年かけて段階的に実施したため、移行期間中は新旧両チームの公演に出演する者や逆に長期間公演に出演できなかった者もいた[Source required].
New performance system and team 4 formation
From around 2009, due to the increase of media exposure of AKB48, the number of regular member performances will decrease, and the ratio of performances performed only by research students will increase. In addition, even on the performance dates of regular members, which were few in number, popular members were often absent (absent). As a countermeasure, a plan to increase the number of regular members from the previous 48 people and replace the members appearing in the performance with the waiting members each time will emerge. As a preliminary step, it will be announced that eight people will be promoted from research students to regular members on December 2010, 12 and one person on February 8, 8. However, because the plan itself did not progress and the teams that were involved were not announced at the same time, until the teams were decided, they would be provisionally regular members but appear as underscores for each team (supplementary members during shortages and breaks), Or it was in a state of appearing mainly in team research student performances.
After that, the plan was changed, and although the performance itself did not change from the performance on April 2011, 4, by removing the team name from each performance name and reorganizing people who can perform instead of the traditional team each time including research students , 8 performances including SDN48 will be carried out in a well-balanced manner (the schedule announcement in the form of conventional team performances and research student performances will be lost)[146].. Until then, we had announced the rest, but after that we will announce the performers including the names of the research students, and if the majority of the 16 research students are the discount, the viewing fee will be reduced by 1,000 yen uniformly It was a performance[146].. However, the crown of the team has been removed, but it is not completely at random, but it is carried out in the form of a joint team of the conventional main team and research students in each performance. On June 6 of the same year, the formation of Team 6 by the aforementioned undecided members will be announced.
From October 2011, 10Team 4 1st Stage "My Sun" PerformanceHowever, all members of SDN2012 graduated on March 3, 31, so there will be four performances by four teams. It is also stated that Team 48 will be formed in the future.[147].

Review of AKB48

AKB48 in the history of Japanese female idols

Before AKB48 appeared, Yasushi Akimoto also participated in the production as a staff member and made his debut as a Japanese female group idol.1980 eraThere is an Onyanko club that was active in. A characteristic of the Onyanko club,AmateurSelect a girl from the audition and make it into a large group after 50 people. "" ((Ushiro Yubisasagumi-Back Hair HikaretaiAKB48 has inherited points such as "selecting several members to sell as derivative units" and "targeting young fans of the same generation as the members".[410]..Onyanko Club says "SunsetAKB48 is a project that has a dedicated theater and was launched with theater performances as the main activity, while the Onyanko Club joins new members. AKB48 is different in that it has a metabolism of "conventional member graduation, new student joining", while Onyanko Club is disbanded about two years after its debut due to the decline in the audience rating of the program. But[411], AKB48 is still active in 2005, 16 years after its formation in 2022.In addition, the Onyanko Club will show the "behind the scenes" to the viewers by broadcasting on TV the members passing through the audition and making their debut, while taking the method of appealing the reality. While it was possible for the management side to control the screening and broadcast content to some extent, AKB48 did not appear on TV programs so aggressively until around the latter half of 2009, and "Idol who can go to see" It can be said that the distance between fans and idols has been shortened to the utmost by eliminating the intermediate term of TV programs according to the concept.[412][413].

After the dissolution of the Onyanko club, female idols that have gained decisive popularity have not appeared for a long time, and they have been active since 1997 (major debut next year 1998) to the present.Morning Musume.After hits such as, AKB2005 was formed in 48 in the form of introducing the method against the background of underground idol culture.[414].. Morning Musume is an early fan of AKB48. (Or including itHello! Project) It seems that fans have flowed in, so Morning Musume is the reason why AKB48 became popular.There is also a view that may have continued its activities for more than 10 years without being disbanded.[415].

AKB2009 was an explosive hit around 48, but a little later, in JapanKARA,GirlhoodIncluding South Korea OfK-POPGirls units are gaining popularity. Whereas AKB48 has one of its concepts to "show fans how it grows"[416], Many of K-POP's female idol units set a practice period of several years before their debut, and the difference is that they can show off a highly complete performance from the stage of the first stage.[417]..Yasushi Akimoto said that K-POP girls' units can always be evaluated as professionals who can maintain a certain quality, but in contrast, the appeal of AKB48 is that the same AKB48 does not exist at any time. Are[418].

ColumnistAkio NakamoriStates that "the idol is not a reflection of the era, but an anticipation of the era," and that the theory is applicable to AKB48. That is,Hibari Misora"After the warHigh economic growth"Momoe YamaguchiIs the "era of low economic growth",Seiko MatsudaBut"Bubble economyAKB48 has expressed the view that it has taken the theme of how to enjoy in Japan, where economic recovery is difficult with the conventional model.[419].

Content typology

EconomistHideomi TanakaAnd criticsTsunehiro UnoAnd so on2000 eraAfter JapanPop cultureThe categorization of content used in criticism is applied to AKB48.

Tanaka says that when a fan reads a member's blog and makes a comment, the fan is trying to connect himself to the member's "little private story."Sekai systemPointed out that it was[420]..Furthermore, the principle of competition represented by the general election is the era consciousness peculiar to the 2000s, which Uno named "The Vive / Battle Royale".[Note 44][421]It pointed out that AKB48 has both Sekai and Survival elements.[420].

Uno says that in the sense that AKB48 members are mobilized as players of a big game called AKB48, AKB48 is a representative example of "Battle Royale", that is, "big story" (value shared by the whole society) collapsed.Post modernArgues that it applies to the mechanism of using "big games" as an alternative to "big stories" in our society[422].

On the other hand, Uno is a community consisting only of women, and AKB48 says "Air systemInsist that it also has the characteristics of ". Inside the community called AKB48, intimate friendships between members (pseudo)HomosexualityIt was done as a service to de facto male fans through blogs etc., and homosexual relations were read in TV dramas in which members appeared.DoujinshiBut (by female fans)Comic marketThey are bought and sold at, but these are air-based worksSecondary creationThat there are similarities to general acceptance[Note 45]. However, at the same time, he pointed out that the introduction of the above-mentioned competition principle effectively destroys the planned harmony that tends to occur in air systems.[423][424][425].

Character consumption

UnoSaito TamakiIs a member of AKB48CharacterHe states that (character) is consumed by fans and that it is closely related to the management strategy.Although the characters of each member are not necessarily fixed, the roles are generally divided, and whether or not the members can maintain their popularity depends on the success or failure of the character's establishment rather than factors such as appearance, style, and singing ability. There is a face[426].

Saito has a system in which the characters of the members are easily fixed and easily recognized by organizing subgroups by team and ranking by selection general election, and fans are members due to the concept that emphasizes contact such as handshake events. He states that he has become inspired by the illusion that he can be directly involved in the formation of characters.

In this way, the structure in which the ordering (representing the degree of popularity) and the differentiation of characters proceed simultaneously within the small group is the order naturally formed among students in modern Japanese schools.School castePointed out that it is isomorphic to the structure of[Note 46][426][427]..Based on Saito's theory, Uno circulates the characters of the members through the interaction between the fan community and the management side by the above-mentioned method of "short-circuiting the TV medium as an intermediate term to shorten the sense of distance from the fans". Insisted that it was generated and strengthened.

Fans share various information such as friendships and personalities between members obtained from theater performances and trivial remarks on blogs with communities on the Internet, for example.WikipediaBy posting to etc.Collective intelligenceAccumulate.With the support of such a fan community, the character settings of each member are efficiently generated.In addition to that, this time the management side based on that character setting (or as if)Secondary creation(A little arrangement was added based on that) Characters will appear in the membersTV dramaIt is said that the recognition of the original character will be strengthened by giving it as a role of the character and consuming it by the fans.feedbackIs said to work.Uno calls this "character consumptionEternal institutionWas named[428][429][430][431].

Development by glocalization and penetration of popularity

Regarding the development of AKB48's sister groups in Japan and overseas, Hidetomi Tanaka said that localization and globalization are proceeding at the same time (Glocalization) Is pointed out that there is an aspect of doing[432].

As the popularity of AKB48 has increased, from around 2010, we will create a unit name of alphabet abbreviation + number by playing with the group name of AKB48 and use it for works and advertisements.Tributething[Note 47][433][434]Has come to appear more than once.Similarly, a similar popularity voting project that resembles the AKB48 selection general election system or adds "general election" to the project name.[Note 48][435][436][437][438]Came to appear[Note 49].

AKB48 business model

Relationship with the Japanese economy

Hideomi Tanaka wrote in his book “AKB48's Economics” (2010) that AKB48's increasing influence in the Japanese music market at that timebusiness modelAnalysis, AKB48 is strong in the recession "deflation culture"[Note 50]Advocated the theory that it is one of[440].

2000 eraLaterCD recessionAmong them, J-POP artists tended to earn a lot of money at concerts, and the entrance fees tended to be high. On the other hand, the tickets for the AKB48 theater performances are set at a much lower price than the live performances of general artists, and the prices of related products such as photo books are also set lower than the market price. .. This is an idol of a young person with low incomeGeekTargeted toMarketing strategyThat is.

Also, many AKB48 membersBlog,TwitterHas been opened and fans are spending it virtually without spending money in the form of checking it, which can also be interpreted as a typical deflationary culture. at the same time,Cultural economicsEconomist with a book onTyler CohenIt can be considered as one of the non-economic activities that does not transfer the money, which is called "mind consumption".[441].

Masaru KanekoAKB48's business model is to maintain low-priced routes,Exploiting employees with low wage laborToUNIQLOIt is similar to the management method of the company, and criticizes it as establishing a deflationary economy.[442]. On the other hand, Tanaka does not scale the idol market so much that it affects the Japanese economy, and confuses the result with the cause. In other words, the management method of AKB48DeflationArguing that the strategy of AKB48 was born to adapt to the economic situation of deflation rather than to generate[443].

In connection with this, Tanaka stated in "The End of AKB48 Caused by the Revival of the Japanese Economy" (2013):AbenomicsThe recovery of the Japanese economy throughinflationIf that happens, the popularity of AKB48 will decline, or it will reach the end[444].

Global expansion / acceptance in Asia

Has studied the global strategy of multinational companies for 30 yearsHarvard Business SchoolProfessor Juan Alkersell wrote "AKB48: Going Global?", which uses the global development of AKB48 as a teaching material.MBAUsed in the program's "International Competitive Strategy" class[445].. The operating company AKSDentsuTeam up withFranchiseAKB48's business model of exporting a format that expands outside Japan by the method and forming an idol group locally was accepted in Asia[445].

Product variation development

The business related to AKB48 and its sister groups has traditionally focused on providing sound sources.Music cdRather than promoting the sale of individual products, it is characterized by offering "handshake tickets" and opportunities with rare value, selling as a set as a combined product with benefits that can be traded at a high price, and developing variations of them.AKB Commercial CodeCame to be called[446].

Case study

One voting ticket is enclosed for each specified CD "AKB48 selection general electionIn ”, there have been multiple reports of cases where enthusiastic fans purchase in large quantities by themselves in order to raise the ranking of the members they support.[447],Everyday, headbandAt the time of release, it is reported on TV that some fans are buying hundreds to thousands of copies by themselves.Similarly, since the time and number of people per handshake ticket is limited, there are examples of purchasing multiple cards for long-term handshakes and handshakes with multiple members, as well as CDs with different types.・ With "raw photo" of DVD privilege and standby imageRinging songThere are similar examples in distribution.

2008年1月に『AKB48 2nd Anniversary スペシャルフォトアルバム』が、定価5万400円(税込)で2,000冊限定販売された。特典として発売から7年10か月後の2015年12月8日開催予定の『AKB48劇場オープン10周年祭』招待券が付属されていた[448]. The event was actually held on December 2015, 12.The Prince Park Tower TokyoHeld as "AKB48 Theater Opening 10th Anniversary Festival"[449].

More and more people are trying to make money by reselling products[450],Ponytail and Hair TieFrom the theater board handshake eventIdentificationbyIdentificationHas been strengthened to make it difficult for resale.


The variation development is not limited to the value as a music CD, but is characterized by being sold as a set with handshake tickets, etc., and their expansion and development are evaluated as "epoch-making" as the development of a new business model. May[446]. Moreover, those variations areOricon chartIn the system, you can also enjoy the merit of being counted as "songs with the same title"[451].

On the other hand, it is said that there are also harmful effects, and music criticsTomizawa KazumasaSaid, "In the midst of the CD recession, it can be evaluated as a business idea." However, if the idea of ​​"take from a place where you can get it" such as a specific fan is too much in front, ranking and sales will increase (besides music). On the other hand, it will be difficult to create works that are popular with the public."[446].

AKB48 has been used by domestic and foreign artists for a long time to develop products that are considered to be the same title as a music CD by adding benefits and variations to the music CD so that multiple products with different variations can be purchased. There is a view that it cannot be said to be a commercial law peculiar to.It can also be considered that multiple purchases of products are based on the free will of the customer and are not forced by the seller.[446][452]. However, there are some extreme cases (differences in privilege services) of purchasing multiple copies, and there are criticisms of these methods.[446][452].


Buy a large number of CDs only for handshake tickets and voting tickets, pull out the tickets, sell the CDs to used bookstores immediately,Internet auctionThere are cases where it is sold at a price far below the cost, and in extreme cases it is also reported that it is discarded near the CD shop.[446][450].

  • In 2013, a group of 6 private university students in the Kansai regionCredit cardThere was a case of misusing information and purchasing 48 AKB486 CDs. The criminal group picked up the attached handshake tickets, voting tickets, and raw photos, and then a leader-class student monopolized the handshake ticket and shook hands for a total of about 80 minutes, while voting tickets and raw photos were sold at the Internet auction. Resold and illegally dumped a total of 681 CDs, including those purchased before that time. The group next January 2014Kyoto Prefectural Police HeadquartersToElectronic computer fraud,Waste treatment methodFor alleged violations,Arrest-Document inspectionWas done[453][454].
  • In 2017, a man living in the Kanto region saidPerishing every wish』Purchased multiple CDs,General electionWe asked for cooperation with colleagues living in Kyushu, saying that the number could not be entered in time for voting.After completing the input work for about 100 sheets (equivalent to about 600 million yen) sent by a man, a man living in Kyushu, one of the collaborators, brought back about 11 CDs to his home, but the CDs are cardboard. There are 10 boxes, and it seems that general waste disposal was troublesome and dumped in the mountains, and on October 16th, 585 CDs of the same title were illegally dumped in the mountains, and documents were sent on suspicion of violating the Waste Management Law.[455].

single"Cherry blossom petals 2008AKB44's official blog posted on February 1, 44 that a CD sold at the theater will be randomly attached with one 48 types of solo posters for a limited time, and if all 2008 types of posters are available, you can participate in a special event. It was announced on the day, but at a later dateAntitrust lawStipulated byUnfair trading methodCould beSony Music EntertainmentAndDefstar Records(Current:Sony Music Labels) Has been pointed out by the legal affairs officer, the plan was canceled and refunds were made by bringing in unopened products and posters.[456]. In addition, the probability that all 1 kinds of posters will be collected without the same poster even once is 44Kyoto1468[Note 51]Therefore, criticisms have been made one after another, including on the Internet.[457]. In addition, a CD with posterAKB48 TheaterIt was also criticized that it was sold only at the cafe and that the limited sales period was 2008 days from February 2 to March 26, 3.[457][458].
