On January 23rd, idol group AKB48 held an event titled, ‘AKB Unit Festival’, at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Bunkyo, Tokyo.

This festival is like an extra concert to their four-day event, ‘Request Hour Set List Best 100’, which ended just recently on the 22nd. This festival featured AKB48 sub-units Watarirouka Hashiritai 7, No Sleeves, and French Kiss as well as five soloists  such as Maeda Atsuko (20) and Itano Tomomi (20).

2012 marked the very first ‘AKB Unit Festival’, and only 28 performers appeared on the first stage. Not yet’s Oshima Yuko (23) commented, “I was surprised at how little people [there] were on the stage.

Fellow Not yet member Sashihara Rino (19)  performed her solo debut song, “Sore Demo Suki Dayo”, which will be released this Spring. Afterwards, DiVA’s Akimoto Sayaka (23) revealed to their fans that, “[Sashihara] was extremely nervous backstage.” Sashihara admitted, “Bull’s eye~ I seriously wanted to run away!

In addition to these sub-unit performances and solo stages, six members of AKB48 came out as 'Selection 6' and performed "Sweet & Bitter", the coupling song to their upcoming single, “GIVE ME FIVE!”.

Approximately 4,000 people attended the event.
