New AKB48 Unit “Not yet” to DebutPublished on January 22nd, 2011.
A new AKB48 unit including the four members Oshima Yuko, Kitahara Rie, Sashihara Rino and Yokoyama Yui was formed today after the announcement at AKB48 Request Hour Set List Best 100 2011, where they performed their debut song “Shuumatsu Not yet”. The unit is set to release the single on March 16th.
According to producer Akimoto Yasushi he named the unit “Not yet” because both their dancing and singing aren’t that good yet, meaning they still have potential to develop into something great. I personally don’t really agree in Oshima Yuko’s case, but it’s an interesting name nevertheless.
With Oshima Yuko and Kitahara Rie being two of my favorite idols in AKB48, I’ll most certainly look forward to more from Not yet!
