On the 23rd, AKB48 announced at Tokyo’s SHIBUYA-AX, that they all would participate in TV Tokyo’s “Drama24 Majisuka Gakuen 2”, starting in April.
It’s the sequel to last year’s cool “Majisuka Gakuen”. The members will play tough Yankees. It is a story of the girls becoming friends through power struggles. It’s a promise that there will be action scenes with the girls in sailor uniforms. Last time, the strongest student was played by Maeda Atsuko (19), she announced, “This time I’ve power-upped”. Last time, there were around 60 people participating, including Kenkyuusei (Research Students). This time they promise a scale-up from before, “This time we’re going to exceed that number”.
