Hey guys. Remember a month ago when I asked for volunteers to write a post about yourfavourite member? This one: http://melosnomichi.blogspot.com/2010/02/volunteer-writers-wanted.html
Very sorry for the long wait. Well good news is that the first batch is finished. By the way I need more volunteers for the rest of the members or I will have to end with 4 posts. Anyway let's start this series with a post about Oshima Yuko, AKB's Idol entertainer and 2nd most popular AKB girl from the Iiwake Senbatsu elections. And also 2nd on my ranking! I love Yuko. She's energetic, funny, cool, and is an awesome singer.

OK, so here I'll give you guys a little background info on Yuko and why I love her so so much, hopefully, you'll get to love her as much as I do, and if she's not your type of idol, then you'll at least know a lot of data about one of the top girls in AKB48

Yuko was also a young model, and had 2 photobooks before joining AKB.
She joined AKB and was placed in Team K, and according to what she said in an interview recently, Akimoto decided to make her the center girl because she was the most experienced out of all the other girls. According to her, he said that he didn't think she could get any better than she was already, but she could be of some use while the other members improved. That's really mean! XD
But it was Keibetsu Shiteita Aijou that sealed the deal for me, after I watched that PV I knew I had to find out more about her and that she would be my favorite member no matter what! She was so intense about her acting, and not only in the part where she cries on the roof (although that is truly amazing too) but also in the dance parts. While all the girls look kinda sad when they're dancing along to the song, Yuko looks positively heart broken, it's amazing!
