AKB48 and SKE48 2011 Calendars

Updated 14 September - All calendars' release dates delayed to end-October, Matsui Jurina calendar cancelled.

A number of AKB48 and SKE48 members will be releasing calendars for the year 2011. There will be a total of 25 calendars to be released.

Members releasing solo calendars
Sato Amina, Minegishi Minami, Oshima Yuko (wall calendar), Oshima Yuko (table calendar), Kasai Tomomi, Sashihara Rino, Akimoto Sayaka, Maeda Ami, Miyazaki Miho, Takahashi Minami, Kitahara Rie, Kojima Haruna, Miyazawa Sae, Fujie Reina, Itano Tomomi, Yonezawa Rumi, Maeda Atsuko, Watanabe Mayu
Urano Kazumi, Sato Yukari
Matsui Jurina

Group calendars
Nattou Angels Z, Watarirouka Hashiritai, SKE48 (wall calendar), SKE48 (table calendar)

Prices for solo wall calendars are 2,415yen (tax included). The prices for the others varies.

So my thoughts.... Definitely gonna get Amina's calendar of course :) . hehehe. SKE48 gets a calendar but AKB48 doesn't? But I think that's because they have a later release date and it hasn't been announced yet just like what happened last year. Hmmm so Watarirouka Hashiritai and even Nattou Angels Z gets a group calender but not No3b? That's strange. But at least all the members in No3b will get solo calendars so thats fine. And wut? Yukirin doesn't get a solo calendar? I think she's popular enough. Same goes for Rena and Mariko.

Release dates are not confirmed, most have been pushed back to end-October. Different shops are listing different release dates.

It's been a trend to calendar industry to use sexy models as the cover, this teenager models indeed make a new perception to printing calendars. With them on the cover, it looks really refreshing and fun.

DAMN! I really wanted a Rena Matsui Calender also would be nice to get a no3b calender geez. I guess I will be getting an SKE48 wall calender but I do think it is a bit expensive though
