It’s like an annual tradition that a new official AKB48 Calendar should go on sale, and this year is no different.
It seems this year is going by so fast!
There is not much information about the calendar this year, as it still seems a little early. Previous year calendar’s usually centered around a theme, but no information has been released yet, other than that it goes on sale on December 18th, 2015.
There are also no official photos released — just a few from the 2015 calendar. Even so, some have noted an interesting difference
First, the one shown on Amazon’s listing:
Some have noted that Shimazaki Haruka and Kojima Haruna seem to have disappeared! Another image here:
And also, it seems the number of members from sister groups is really notable: aside from Mayuyu, there are no other members of AKB48 (Kashiwagi is technically an NGt48 member now?).
I’m writing about useless and stupid things a lot, and I like to laugh. My policy is 一期一会。It means treasure your meeting with everyone!
