AKB48’s Takahashi Minami reflects on “Kohaku”, then and now

NHK’s year-end show, “Kohaku Uta Gassen“, is almost here and the lineup for 2010 boasts a cast list of epic proportions, particularly for AKB48 member, Takahashi Minami.

“Rehearsal for us was like a scene from a disaster area“, grinned Takahashi. “The combined number of members, including cameos from SKE48 and NMB48, exceeded the total of 100!” This year, the AKB48 family has grown tremendously in size with the additions of the groups, SKE48 and NMB48.

AKB48 first performed on “Kohaku” back in 2007, though their fame hadn’t quite kicked off yet. The girls performed “Aitakatta“, but unfortunately, they received more attention on their parts as back-up dancers for Enka legend, Godai Natsuko.

“It was an honor to dance behind Godai Natsuko-san as she sang, but at the same time, we didn’t really get a chance to be seen, which was kind of regretful. We owe many thanks to everyone for cheering us on, and for allowing us to come back on stage. We’re going to do our best to show everyone a cool AKB48 this year.”

“Kohaku Uta Gassen” will air via live TV on December 31st from 7:30PM to 11:45PM.
