AKB48 3rd Film [Documentary of AKB48: No Flower Without Rain] Announced
The 3rd AKB48 film [Documentary of AKB48: No Flower Without Rain] has been announced and will start screening in cinemas in Japan from February 1st, 2013.
The film will be directed by Takahashi Eiki, who directed last year's [Documentary of AKB48: Show Must Go On], but not the 2011 film [Documentary of AKB48: To Be Continued].
Similar to the previous film, this documentary will take a look at the biggest events that have occurred to AKB48 throughout 2012, including the graduation of ace, Maeda Atsuko, and the momentous concerts at Tokyo Dome. The film will mostly feature interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, and is even said to touch on the topic of "forbidden love" for idols.

A documentary film has now become a yearly staple of AKB48, but nonetheless, I am looking forward to it because it always provides insights we don't get so see elsewhere, and we get a valuable look at what is actually going on within the group and what some of the members are feeling.
