    wait, so before, its like, member lived in a building with common people?
    i always thought that as filthy rich as theyre, the management at least can rent or build a whole building for their own.
    also nobody in the management saw that idols and fans living in the same building and thinking its a bad idea?

    pedrag - They had the whole floor and this fan group stuff has only just "come to light" after being reported by an untrustworthy source. Also their, ahem, "reporting" has a bit of self preservation involved as they're the ones suspected to be financing the ringleader.

    @pedrag: it's always been like this tho, management aren't that generous to buy a whole mansion for the girls. Even in Kpop. When member getting richer (aka more in demand) they will eventually move.

    I see a youtube video about Tano Ayaka getting a 3-year suspension.

    Does anybody have more info on this? I don't read Kanji and can only use google translate on the comments to figurer out what the video is about.

    The video is a summary of Tano Ayaka, Nakai Rika, Nishigata Marina and Inaoka Ryunosuke's rumours related to Yamaguchi Maho's assault incident, the speculations based on Tano Ayaka's Showroom, Tano Ayaka's social media and some unknown sources.

    Well, first of all I personally don't agree some points mentioned in the video, and so far, there is no solid evidence Tano Ayaka directly involved in the assault incident, and the video doesn't even talk about Nakai Rika (If I don't overlook), and there is no the official announcement of Tano Ayaka's suspension.

    Moreover, I personally find witch hunting and studying rumours are pointless and non-productive at this moment (unless you run an AKB48 news website), because even Japanese main medias may not provide accurate or reliable information about the incident.

    I don't know if you are Tano Ayaka's anti or fans, neither where you come from, if you really concern the incident, I hope you can share Yamaguchi Maho's situation with your friend or people you know. Hope it can create more pressure to AKS, and make AKS to reveal the truth, or at least protect Yamaguchi Maho or other victim (if any).

    If you are a Tano Ayaka's fan, and if the result is not what you want, try to accept it or think about it if you should support her or not.

    If you are just an anti, I can tell you the video uploader does not work hard enough.

    It is just my opinion.

    @Paul Cho
    Thanks for the summing up what the video is about. Like I said, I used Google translate for most of the comments to try to get an understanding of what the video is about. But Google translate doesn't always work well. And I guess most of the comments are antis.

    I am not a Tano Ayaka anti, but I never got into her. My oshi was Kitarie. I am considering my next oshi to be Sato Anju cause she is a pretty good. She has an easy, natural showmanship personality in front of people and cameras. And she is young, so I won't have to change oshis for a while.

    I do like Yamaguchi Maho. I feel she comes up with these funny one liners on variety shows and I like the way she talks.

    I don't think Nakai Rika has anything to do with this situation.
    a) She doesn't need to care what others think of her. She is busy with other projects that would make other members jealous.
    b) She is a direct, in your face kind of person if there is a problem.
    c) I believe she moved to Tokyo so she probably does not live in the dorms.
    Nakai Rika is aggressive. she is trying to make a name for herself in the entertainment world. Not just AKB Group.

    Reason I brought this topic up is because I just hoping for some closure to Maho's situation (a closure that benefits Maho). The whole situation is a mess from the investigation side to the PR side. The sooner this close, the sooner Maho can get on with her life. That is my feeling.

    I get most of my 48 & 46 news from your website. Thank you Paul Cho for creating and maintaining it. Please keep it going. I know it is a lot of work. I wouldn't be able to follow AKB Group if it wasn't for you. Thanks again.

    Don't get me wrong.
    I don't think those negative comments are from antis
