37-year-old mother of two joins AKB48!

A 37-year-old mother of two joins the super popular Japanese girl-band AKB48!

Who would have known!

But apparently they wanted to appeal to a bigger audience, more than to teens, and hence did Mariko Tsukamoto, the 37 years old housewife, get a chance to show off in the spotlight after being picked out from a pool of more than 5000 applicants. It’s said that among the applicants were a 82 year old lady. Even though I wish Mariko Tsukamoto all the best, I can’t help but thinking that a 82 year old lady would truly put some spice to the group. ^^

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
