AKB48 Singapore Theater VOL. 12
SDN48 3rd Stage in Singapore
17 February 2012 (Friday)

Sorry this took some time. A lot of things happened last weekend and I'm still trying to recover from it. Where do I start...

As you guys probably know by now, news about Yonezawa Rumi's scandal was uncovered on the afternoon of the 27th, while they were still on the flight to Singapore. And in the wee hours of the 28th, it was announced on the AKB48 Official blog that Yonechan and Nacchan will graduate from the group immediately. And in the morning, AKB48 Singapore confirmed that Yonechan will not be performing at the concert later that day.

The concert was quite awkward because the members still performing had to hide their feelings about Yonechan during their concert. They couldn't mention anything about her either. The show had to go on.

And because there was only 15 members performing, for some of the song choreography there was an empty space between the members. Or like in Ponytail to Shushu there was a move where all of them were split into pairs and danced around each other, but one of the girls would not have a pair. It was during times like that where my mind snaps back and thinks about Yonechan.

Aside from all the gloomyness, overall it's a great concert, but all the unit songs they have performed previously. In fact the whole group songs setlist (M01-03, M09-15) was exactly the same as the previous AKB concert in Singapore on November 20th last year. Some change would be nice, maybe they could perform some of their coupling songs from the singles, or other unit songs/group songs from their current stages.
