On March 11, which will mark the second anniversary of the disaster, AKB48, SKE48, NMB48 and HKT48 will perform a charity concert at their theater in Tokyo's Akihabara.
“Attakaindakara” is a song which born from a skit written by comedy duo Kumamushi and it’s currently one of the most popular tunes in Japan. In the skit, Shunsuke Hasegawa imagines what it would be like if he were reborn female and became an idol.
NGT48 will be the fifth domestic group in the AKB48 franchise. AKB48 itself debuted in Tokyo's Akihabara district in December 2005, followed by SKE48 in Nagoya's Sakae in October 2008, NMB48 in Osaka's Namba in January 2011, and HKT48 in Fukuoka's Hakata.
AKB48 management announced Monday it was canceling a concert at its main theater in Tokyo's Akihabara district, as well as several other events around Japan. Affiliates SKE48 in central Japan and NMB48 in Osaka also canceled or postponed events.
