This week’s member of the month digs a little deeper into the potential of one of AKB’s mysterious sideline girl.
Abe Maria is definitely not the most popular member of AKB48, she is not yet a front girl nor does she ever get major parts in AKB’s singles and so on. However it is hard to overlook this beautiful young Idol much longer. She is no longer the side kick she was in Majisuka Gakuen’s third season and she definitely won’t be the sidekick in AKB48 much longer either.
This girl is definitely Idol material and doesn’t get much recognition for it, so why are they holding her potential back?
Perhaps the AKB48 producers believe it’s best to slowly surface the newer generations one face at a time to prevent fans from further feeling that “AKB isn’t the same”.
This comment is becoming more and more thrown about which is unpleasant to hear as I’m sure Shinoda Mariko, Acchan and Yuko don’t want us to feel this way. They want us to love the group they brought to life for what each generation has to offer. I’m sure every graduated member would feel absolutely sad if everything they worked for and everything they hoped for ended because they weren’t there anymore. Imagine the guilt that TakaMina would have if AKB’s popularity dropped if people didn’t support them simply because “Takahashi Minami left, I don’t care anymore”. It isn’t fair to her, it isn’t fair to the girls who work hard and it isn’t fair to yourself, all of your hilarious wota moments would suddenly mean what?
You’re right, AKB48 isn’t the same, the faces are changing but the energy is not, the graduated members handed down the crown to their heirs. If the Kings and Queens of the United Kingdom can last for this long so can the amazing Idols that work so hard to keep AKB48 lively today.
Abe Maria is a wonderful example of a hard working newer girl who is doing everything she can to sustain AKB48’s ongoing popularity and loyal fans. She dedicates herself, free time and late hours to ensure AKB48 moves forward and not backwards. She is working just as hard as all of our Generation 1 members did to keep AKB48 in the top of our hearts.
That hard work proves that she is a fantastic ace even if she isn’t getting a good rank in the elections or a center position in the next single.
Abe Maria has everything it takes to become just as amazing as Acchan and so does every other member in that group. We have to do our part as wotas and cheer them on until -FOREVER- okay? They work hard for their position, we work hard to keep them there!
I’m proud of all of you AMAZING fans who managed to LOVE AKB48 even if the faces have changed!
Thank you for reading my weird encouragement message haha
