Man this is seriously late. Really sorry.

Congratulations Americans... You get your second AKB concert all in one year. So freaking jealous. Why can't they come to a closer country. Yeah I know the Thailand concert failed but still they could come to Singapore... Anyways have have while you can, and take loads of pictures to share to us miserable folks.
I'm quite disappointed with the lineup. Half of Team A and half of Team K will go to AX10, but only one Team B member will go? So Team B will hold the fort back in the Don Quixote like NYAF, then why is Kitarie there? I don't get it. And Amina doesn't go. Still I'm happy that Mocchi and Ami will be going.
And I hope you guys going will have lots of post-concert depressions :) .
