It has been announced that idol group AKB48 will be performing at Anime Expo 2010. They will hold a concert at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on July 1. They will also participate in panels, meet-and-greets, and autograph sessions. As to which members of AKB48 will be going is still a mystery.
It’s great to see AKB48 getting more exposure in the US market. In Japan, they’ve been on fire lately. Their latest album “Kamikyokutachi” hit #1 on the Oricon charts selling 295 000 copies and their last single “Sakura no Shiori” sold 318,000 copies.
So, how many of you are going to Anime Expo 2010 to see AKB48?
