On February 24, AKB48 group's big team shuffle "AKB48 Group Dai Sokaku Matsuri" was held at Zepp DiverCity in Tokyo.

SEE ALSO: AKB48 announces another big team reshuffle!

One of the biggest surprises was that AKB48's "official rival" group, Nogizaka46 member Ikoma Rina would join team B. Ikoma will continue her activities as a Nogizaka46 member, but will also be in team B as an "exchange student." It was also announed SKE48 team E member Matsui Rena will also hold a concurrent position in Nogizaka46.

Also announced was that they would launch a new "vice captain" system for the whole teams in 48 group in which each team would have both captain and vice captain ("leader" and "vice leader" for SKE48.)

A soon-to-be graduate member Oshima Yuko attended the event as a commentator, and she could not stop large tears rolling down her cheeks, saying, "I didn't graduate yet, but this is the first event I didn't participate...

Regarding the new team K, she made a comment, "I want to join them too! This will be a quite an interesting team."

When all the announcement for the team shuffle was ended, Takahashi Minami who will continue serving as the whole 48 group's general director, spoke her mind, "I was taking it too lightly. I did not expect the members coming apart this much, and I am shocked. Both members and you fans need some time to think, so I would also like to have some time before comprehending this."

Oshima then continued with tearful eyes, "I just want everyone to try their hardest. Though we will be in a different position and environment, I want all of you to create your own future as the way you are. Whenever you feel discouraged, please just come talk to me about anything. I will support AKB48."

I'm veryyy happy to see Sae has become Team S captain and that she will be holding an concurrent position! I always thought Sae is a captain material and used to be very bummed on why she wasnt made a captain after akimoto sayaka. And Mayuyu!! Im glad she was back to team B! I dont find her very fitting in Team A and Team B songs without Mayuyu just doesnt feel right. And finally a Nogizaka member! Nogizaka has put up a great fight but I think they really need AKB48's popularity to grow even more as a group! I'm excited for Ikoma! now she gets to be in the same team as her oshimen Mayuyu!! Hopefully she can appear alongside with Mayuyu as front girl for Team B, she's a great center material and I hope that more and more nogizaka members can hold a concurrent position in AKB as well. Nogizaka is full of awesome members who seriously needs more spotlight.

well, about this "reformation".. there's some result that i like and some that i don't..

i'm glad my kami oshi jurina position is still the same, although she's rarely been in team K show, but i think it's a good place for her and do some advantages for her. i also like how mayuyu back to team B, because i think she belongs there, and she always be team B ace. it doesn't matter if she's not in favor by AKS, she has a LOT of fans, and she wont lose her popularity any time soon :) i'm excited to see how Yui will captain team K, since she's such a brilliant captain for team A before. i'm happy they made murashige concurrent in NMB team N ! i think she will fit there and it will do good for her popularity :) i'm really excited to see ikoma in AKB, she's kind of behind from other member in nogizaka right now, so i'm excited to see how it will change for her with the concurrency. it's also exciting to see rena in nogizaka! she definitely will be senbatsu in their singles, i never imagine her in nogizaka image before so i'm very excited !

i hate how they move paru to team A, it's clearly favoritism! i hate how the management made us think they've stop the "paruru push" but now they will clearly do it again starting with her move to team A, management will shove her again in our face ! i don't hate her, she's cute and all but all the push is unnecessary and it seems really unfair for other member who work harder than her (to me she still lacks of passion) i also don't like suu chan move to SKE, she's just doesn't fit there, and she really loves AKB :"( i also think, milky will lose some popularity now that she's not in team B anymore. it's kind of sad, but i think she will survive

i'm sorry for all my blabbering.. it just i have so much to say about this reformation as AKB fan

Wow AKB48 really knows how to 'spice' things up. Never imagined the whole reformation, especially the whole load of concurrent members.

Ikoma Rina! Finally a Nogizaka x AKB interaction. I do hope soon they will debunk the idea of being rival groups and perform together as a group. Because at the first place they have never been rivals to me. They just don't perform together lol.

Overall, I really love the reformation, even though it is super hard to accept right now I know this sad or confusing parts will pass. And I know and trust the management  that they will never do this if the member will not at least benefit the reformation.

They should have sent Mayu to Nogizaka and kept up with Mayuzaka46 LOL. Mayuyu blended in with Nogizaka really well. But oh well...I'm looking forward to Ikoma and Mayuyu being on the same team. 

As far as the Mayuyu vs. Paruru center thing; well Aki-p has always seemed to prefer Paruru for the future center. Didn't they even give her Acchan's "enternal center" sash and everything? I mean, he down's Mayuyu's prospects at being center every-time it comes up in an interview, so I don't get why her fans would be shocked if he was saying "no" to the prospect of her centering. I just don't understand what he's trying to do. He's been shoving JuriMayu down people's throats for as long as SKE's been in existence and even in the 35th single, but Paruru is going to center?

Lol what's going on with Nogi46? Are they still rivals with AKB or not? Why did they have to add Matsui Rena for?

· Posted February 25, 2014 @ 2:20 am
Whut? They have never been rival. Just the like a distant half sister but they've always been another sister groups with slightly different image
· Posted February 26, 2014 @ 7:04 am
For me they really have never been rivals haha. I love how Rena is their. She has the classic idol aura for me that really suit in Nogizaka. I am now excited for Ikoma too!! I do hope she can join an AKB single or even AKB election! :D

I don understand why u guys making a huge fuss about mayuyu entering team B..She first rose to stardom when she was still in team B not in Team A...We should just continue to support her wherever she go instead of whining about which team she's in.....Ps: I cant wait to see miyazawa in SKE O_O WOOOO

· Posted February 26, 2014 @ 11:29 pm
Because team a is being taken care of the most by management. The fact that they switched paruru for mayuyu in team A means they are probably gonna promote paruru as the next center and not mayuyu. All the centers are in the first team of each group (like team N in nmb and team H in hkt)

Where's Meru?! I'm happy about Kojiharu and Mayuyu being transferred back to their original teams. I'm SO PISSED about Paruru being on Team A now. Also SUPER SUPER PISSED about Karen being on Team S! AKS, this girl is your future center. Don't you dare kick her out of the spotlight!!! All in all, disappointed.

· Posted February 24, 2014 @ 3:47 pm
You shouldn't be happy. Who care about original teams and shit? Mayuyu might just got the middle finger from AKS and will not become center. Team A have always been the favorite of AKS. Mayuyu getting send to B and Paruru send to A could mean Mayuyu got her spot jacked.
· Posted February 24, 2014 @ 6:06 pm
Karen already rejected to be transfered to SKE in her blog. It's definitely the emotions talking right now. I wonder what will happens if she won't change her mind?
· Posted February 24, 2014 @ 6:31 pm
While I'm not happy about Mayuyu being moved back to Team B for the same reason mochichan said, I am glad Kojiharu was moved out of it. She, as a member known for her sex appeal, seemed a bit awkward in the team known for it's cuteness. I'm also glad that I have more of a reason to support Team B again that just Yukirin being there.
· Posted February 24, 2014 @ 6:35 pm
@mayuyufan83 And by reason I mean that 3 of my top 5 members being in Team B (Mayuyu, Yukirin, and Hirarii).
· Posted February 24, 2014 @ 9:02 pm
@raf Tomu rejected too...I heard they can appeal but IDK if it actually matter if they disagree with the position.
· Posted February 24, 2014 @ 11:50 pm
@mochichan I don't think the appeals matter much, most likely the people who handle the appeal are the one who decide on this pointless exercise. With that said, I do admit that S's new makeup intrigue me. Never in my imagination that Sae & Milky will SKE & Chuuri cocurrent in NMB. It is with great saddness that Yuria gotten transfered to AKB, but at least she is in 4. If management truly wants to push Yuria, they can do it freely since 90% of the members are managed by AKS.
· Posted February 25, 2014 @ 2:23 am
@raf Right? Maybe members can appeal but AKS could try to talk them into accepting it. I don't have much faith in AKS to begin with anyway so...I think those 2 are good dancers so they won't look bad in SKE but I feel bad for the SKE own members who got their spots taken. SKE wotas are more "fans of the group" than so they might not accept those 2. I think since Sae have issues with AKB, SKE is a good place to go to but Milky might not have much go gain and she'll end up doing events with AKB, SKE, NMB that will exhaust her out. Same for Rena too : I hope Yuria get a senbatsu spot at least.. She want to be actress so being in Tokyo help her out but she left SKE as one of the rising top member that it's too bad if she's centering UG and craps.

AKB pretty much just leeched off the top members of sister groups to reinforce their own ranks. K got good members but they're SKE, NMB, HKT tops who are probably going to get the most screentimes in Team PVs rather than AKB's own members. Yukirin have no reason in NMB, she'll just take up a senbatsu space when she's already popular. Yuria who's one of the top rising junior member got stolen from SKE and put if AKB. It could go well or bad for her if she doesn't get the senbatsu spot in AKB. Rena will now have to do handshake events in AKB, SKE, and Nogizaka and those things are tedious and can go over 8 hrs. And what about her taking away Nogi's members senbatsu spot? 

 Only a few I like like seeing more of Ikoma, the rest is a mess. 

· Posted February 24, 2014 @ 2:47 pm
Add edit button please. I just remember what about Tomu? She was so upset when management pulled a douche move with the reformation hype VTR few months ago when they subtly singled out Team K as being the weakest with the "What will you do with Team K?" She broke down and have to be carry off stage. Afterward she said how it's annoying that people think K is useless and she's determine to become K's ace and follow in Yuko's footstep and now she's not even a K member. She's clearly not happy with transfer to A and now she have to compete with members push by management already. This suck.
