    Why do I have a feeling this is related to Yoshimoto Kyoraku? Yoshimoto Kyoraku- I think they own NMB48's theatre.

    Nogizaka = AKB. first gens, "the idols"
    Keyakizaka = SKE. the dancers, energy
    Yoshimotozaka = NMB. the entertainers

    Most of the members of NMB, and NMB the group, are signed to Yoshimoto Kogyo, I think.

    Nogizaka and Keyakizaka are more than enough for me and I don't even pay attention to the 48 side. Adding another group would be overwhelming and I would not have any interest in following them. I would hate for this genre of music to be over saturated with subpar artists like kpop currently. There are even members in the 46 groups that I feel aren't being promoted properly. It makes no sense to produce a new idol group, especially if the fans are highly against it.

    It's an odd idea but I think could ultimately not be necessarily a bad one. I see it as broadening the 48/46 concept to include more cultural fields. It's ambitious and risky, I like it. Hopefully it'll be a positive contribution. If nothing else it should be interesting
