10 AKB48 Kenkyuusei Members Promoted

Published on June 1st, 2011.

It’s official, 10 girls from AKB48′s Team Kenkyuusei have been promoted to official members! (Edit: actually, a few of them have been official teamless members for a while and are supposed to join a team within a couple of weeks). Among the 10 members we have Mori Anna, Nakamura Mariko, Oba Mina, Shimazaki Haruka, Nagao Mariya, Takeuchi Miyu, Yamauchi Suzuran, Nakamata Shiori and my two favorites, Ichikawa Miori and Shimada Haruka.

This is about it in terms of the announcement, we don’t know which teams they will join yet, but we can expect to see a lot more of them from now on. The kenkyuusei members have grown a lot on me in recent months as they have often appeared on AKBINGO and since I’ve been catching up on Nemousu TV, so I’m very excited about this!

Who’s your favorite out of these 10?

Here’s a list of the girls, in case you don’t know them by name:
