AKB48 subunit NO NAME holds their 1st solo live concert
On February 17th, NO NAME held their first solo live concert "AKB0048 NO NAME FIRST KILALIVE" at Makuhari Messe.
NO NAME is comprised of AKB48’s Watanabe Mayu, Nakaya Sayaka, Sato Amina,Ishida Haruka, Sato Sumire, and Iwata Karen, SKE48’s Yagami Kumi and Hata Sawako, and NMB48’s Mita Mao, and they participate as voice actresses in ongoing anime "AKB0048 next stage."
At the live, they appeared in the same blue costumes the anime characters wear, and performed a total of 7 songs. Their set list included the anime's theme song "Kono Namida wo Kimi ni Sasagu" and "Aruji naki Sono Koe", as well as AKB48's songs like "Oogoe Diamond" and "Shoujo tachi yo."
There was a segment where the voice actresses Kanda Akemi, Shiraishi Ryoko, Kojima Sachiko, and Kakazu Yumi who work on the anime, made appearances. The voice actresses showed the dubbing with the members and a "shuffle live dubbing". The live dubbing challenged voicing for different characters from their actual ones which livened up the event.
Watanabe commented, "We members are very close with each other as it's hard to believe that we were joined from different groups. The live was just so much fun, so it is sad that the time went by so fast." Hata also said, "Though we have 9 members, it felt like 26 of us (including their characters from the anime) stood on the stage all together."
As announced earlier, NO NAME is set to release their 2nd single "Kono Namida wo Kimi ni Sasagu" on April 10th.
