Nogizaka46 [16nin no Principal deux]

AKB48 false rival group Nogizaka46 have started performing their [16nin no Principal deux] musical theatre shows. These are a follow up to last year's [16nin no Principal] performances. They perform from 3-12 May at the Akasaka ACT Theatre, Tokyo, with some days having two shows, and then perform 5 shows in the Umeda Arts Theatre, Osaka from 31st May - 2nd June 2013.

This show is basically a musical which lasts almost two and a half hours. After the hour long Act 1, fans in the audience vote members into different roles for Act 2. There are 10 roles available, as well as 6 "maid" roles.

Not all Nogizaka46 members will perform, as Hoshino Minami, Ichiki Rena and Kashiwa Yukina have pulled out from these perforamnces to concentrate on their studies, Miyazawa Seira is injured and Ando Mikumo has announced her graduation, although she has a final handshake event on the 16th June.

After about a 35 minute break for voting, they commence Act 2, which is slightly shorter, at 45 mins long. They then introduce a new 2nd generation member, one per performance, before launching into a mini-live consisting of 5th single [Kimi no Na wa Kibou] and coupling song [Shakiism].
