TKE: I’ve been playing a rather interesting PSP game recently.
I’m sure all of you know who AKB48 is. It’s impossible not to know. They are EVERYWHERE! But just in case you were living in a cave for the past few years, AKB48 is a Japanese female idol group advertised as “idols you can meet”. They have their own performing theater in Akihabara (thus the group name AKB, the short form for Akiba, which is a short form for Akihabara) where fans can see them live everyday. The group is huge and split into 4 teams, Team A, Team K, Team B, and Team 4.
And then…one day, I chanced upon a random Youtube video about this PSP game. A PSP game called AKB1/48.
So when I started playing this game, I was so amused and excited. It was definitely interesting to ‘go out’ with a girl and see the various ways they try to make you like her. I also discovered that, for students of the Japanese language, this is an excellent way to learn Japanese!
