so, this week..i’ll introduce you about this girl.
The ‘ace’ of AKB48, Maeda Atsuko. The most popular member in the group and i think, she has the most fans compared to other members.
i’m not sure how she become the member but i guess, she went through the audition.
actually, i don’t like her at first. why? because i think it is annoying when she got a lot of attention from the management. when i watched AKB’s pv, most of them will have Acchan as the center. it’s fine if she is the leader but hey,she’s not!
but now, my thought on her is different. i think, i know why fans like her and why she is the ace, not others.
after i watched akb’s videos; akbingo,pv,event etc..i started to like her. i think it’s because her girl-next-door character that made her as the ace. i don’t know how to describe it but you’ll get what i mean after you watch her video.
of course, to reach this stage is not easy. i remember an article about her story during her early days in AKB. there was time when she think that she didn’t suit to be the center especially when she needs to be the center with Matsui Jurina. but she kept doing her best.
in 2009, Acchan won the first place for the 1st Senbatsu Election.
this year’s election, she got no 1 after lost to Yuko in 2nd election which was held last year.
although she has a lot of fans, she also has many antis. during the 3rd election, she talked about this in her speech.
“Everyone, thank you so much. I was really able to feel encouragement and support from many people. Of course, I know there are people who don’t like me. There’s just one thing I’d like to ask: even if you dislike me, please don’t disklike AKB! This year, I want to deliver smiles to everyone with AKB48. Please take care of me.”
She made her solo debut with single ‘Flower’. The song is used in her movie titled Moshidora.
She also appeared in some dramas such as Swan no Baka(2007), Taiyou to Umi no Kyoushitsu(2008), Majisuka Gakuen(2010&2011), Ryoma Den(2010), Q10(2010), and Hanazakari no Kimitachi e(2011).
