AKB48’s 4 Day Tokyo Nippon Budokan Live opened, with NMB48’s solo stage performance taking place April 26th.
A snippet of NMB48's concert can be seen here:
This concert features individual performances by AKB48, SKE48, NMB48 and HKT48 at the Budokan with a combined performance on April 28th. Following SKE48 on Day 1, NMB48 took the stage to a crowd of roughly 11,000 fans, performing a setlist that could only be characterized as NMB-like.
With Watanabe Miyuki as the backstage announcer, NMB48’s version of the Overture began to play, with the center of the stage illuminating the presence of the NMB48 members. With Kinoshita Haruna’s and Kadowaki Kanako’s mystery quiz, the group lead off with “Nandeyanen, Idol”, “NMB48” and “Seishun no Laptime”, invigorating the crowd.
Following the third song, the members took center stage to greet the crowd. Yamamoto Sayaka said, “What an amazing crowd.” while Milky states “Tanoshimirukii!”. Newcomer Yokoyama Yui stated “There is something we wish to say with you all”, to which the crowd and members yelled together “Teppen Tottande!!!”
As the MC ended, Watanabe Miyuki lead off with her solo song, “Warukii”, followed by Yamamoto, Yokoyama and Yamada’s “Dazai Osamu wo yonda kai?” and other red and white group songs.
Yamamoto’s solo song “Jungle Gym” was hindered by technical issues that lead to a slight delay where Yamamoto said, “My partner isn’t listening to me”. She also commented on how the penlights made the stadium vibrant, and as she finished her solo song, she was met with a deafening applause.
Yamada Nana’s MC followed, reflecting upon (April 18th’s) NMB48’s Request Hour Best 30. Yamamoto Sayaka mentioned “I was so nervous because I was being observed from 360 degrees”.
