Each year Senbatsu or general election for the most popular AKB48 girl is a major event in Japan and this year was not different from any other year
Watanabe Mayu is a charming and talented 20 year girl who has worked hard since joining the group in 2007, and I am really happy that she has won this fans award.
In addition to her work with the worlds most successful pop group, she has appeared in a number of TV dramas as supporting actress and as a voice actress in anime and this year she has been the lead actor in a movie and a drama series. I am sure that she will continue to shine in her career, and in the future will continue to develop as an actress and singer.
She really came to to challenge the established order in AKB48 following her role as number three in the mega hit Koi Suru Fortune Cookie. The video featured 3,800 extras which is definitely a record for Japan and maybe the world ! ! !
It is a great pop song, cheerful, positive and just a lot of fun ! ! !
So relax your smiling muscles – as it says in the song:
tsuki wo yobu ni wa
egao wo miseru koto
or in English
To get some luck,
you gotta smile
I hope you like it ! ! !
