NMB48 Announces 3 New Stages
On February 29th, 2012, NMB48 has announced three new stages starting in spring.
First of all, Team N will get its first original stage, and it's 3rd overall. It will start on May 12th. Nothing else has been announced yet.
Second, Team M will also get its first stage. Scheduled to start May 5th, NMB48's newest team will perform [Idol no Yoake], formerly performed by Team B as their 4th Stage from 2009 to 2010.
In additon NMB48's 3rd Generation will make their theater debut on April 29 with [Aitakatta], Team A's 2nd Stage, which also has been done by Team B and Team KII.
All this is happening right during the NMB48 Osaka Juuban Shoubu Live Tour, which runs from April 19 to May 31st.
I am really excited about this new announcements. especially about Team N finally getting an original stage. Also, it is great that they picked B4 for Team M, because this stage hasn't been redone yet (except for AKB48 Kenkyusei) and I really like it. In contrast to that, the 3rd Generation members will get to do A2, one of the most rehashed stages. At least it is an easy stage to learn for the new girls.
Now NMB48 only needs LODs for us overseas fans to enjoy the new stages. April and May will certainly be a busy month.
