Team N 3rd Stage Called [Koko ni datte Tenshi wa Iru]
On the second day of AKB48's Tokyo Dome Concerts, dates for new stages for all teams were announced. Among them is the long-awaited 3rd Stage for Team N. For this stage, the title has also been revealed. It will be called [Koko ni datte Tenshi wa Iru] (which can be translated to "Angels are here"/ "Even angels are here"). The Shonichi will take place on October 26. One song of this stage, [Aoi Tsuki ga Miteru Kara], has already been performed during the Kyocera Dome Concert on August 7.
This stage will be the first original one for Team N after they have performed Team A 3rd's [Dareka no Tame ni] and Team K2nd's [Seishun Girls], as well as a revival of the already rehashed stage [Dareka no Tame ni]. In February last year, Team N 3rd had been originally announced for May 12, 2012 but was then postponed to August 19, 2012, then to October 8, 2012 and later postponed indefinitely.
In contrast to the previous times, we now have a title and a song out of the stage, so this time it is very likely that the stage is really happening. Three years after NMB48's debut and two years and almost five moths after Team N was formed, the first original NMB48 stage might finally happen!
For the other Shonichi dates please refer to this post .
I am really excited and so happy though part of me still doesn't really believe that N3rd is happening. One and a half year have passed since the stage was first announced. One and a half year of promises and disappointments for the Team N girls as well as their fans. This better be one of the best stages ever!
