In a surprise announcement, MNL48's Sayaka Awane announces graduation, sending shockwaves across the group, most especially the rankings.
Last week, the girls' first public performance drew generally positive feedback, another "Pasabog" or surprise came and its ramifications, and capping it all off with another solid Showtime performance. All set in the back-drop of the 53rd Single Sekai Senbatsu Sousenkyo.
It was, to put it mildly, a wild journey full of ups and downs with unexpected twists and corners complicating the way. Hell, the more than four-hour wait to get in was its own torture too. But seeing the girls go from dreamers to idols right before your very eyes as well as thanking you for helping them achieve that dream made it all feel worth it.
MNL48 will hold a Seitansai for October Birthday celebrants this coming Sunday, October 14, 2018 at the Movie Stars Cafe in Centris Station, Quezon City, Philippines.
MNL48 is the Filipino adaptation of the world renowned Japanese pop idol group, AKB48, which is the highest-selling girl group in Japan. They have created a one-of-a-kind concept of “idols you can meet” since 2005 and is regularly performing on their own theater at Akihabara, Tokyo. The concept has reached to several sister groups across Asia namely in Jakarta, Taipei, and Bangkok.
