AKB48 is japanese idol group , which originally consist of 48 members , divided into 3 teams, named A, K, and B, each has 16 members (src : wikipedia ) . All of AKB48's members is young girl which range in age from early teens to mid 20's . Produced by Yasushi Akimoto, this idol group created on 2005, through an audition that held in search of a group of girl, and have a concept "idol that you can meet" . They have their own theater at Akihabara, and perform there almost everyday .

Beside their activities on theatre, they also make appearance on several TV shows . This idol group also have a restrict rules about dating . Each members must follow one golden rules, which is forbid their members to have any special relationship with guy(dating) . They must be "well-behave" cause if they're not, they may be expelled from this group .

They well known for their popular song, such as Sakura no Hanabiratachi , Heavy Rotation, Beginner, Iiwake Maybe , River, Oogoe Diamond, and such . And for me, they also have their unique and kawaii style (≧◡≦) . Too bad, one of my favorite member, or usually called as my "Oshi" , Atsuko Maeda-san graduated on August 2012 (´ー`) .

For me, the biggest reason why I love 48's family is simply because I love their music, and I love how they give different image as an idol . They put a lot of hardwork , discipline, and effort from the beginning till now they reach their success . Unlike most of artist that only have their luck and pretty face(ups, sorry) this group start their career as nothing and now they become something . Yeah, I think it's a good thing to follow their hardwork to reach our dream
