Can Arama guess who had recently had a fantastical party to celebrate their birthday on April 2nd? I'll give you a hint in the form of a picture.
The producer of the 48 family and professional song-writer, Akimoto Yasushi.
On the night before his birthday, some of the girls from AK48 and SKE48, such as Maeda Atsuko, Akimoto Sayaka, Matsui Jurina, Kashiwagi Yuki, held a birthday party for their boss, Akimoto Yasushi. It was set up by the members themselves.
They even had a specialized cake for him with a caricature of his face (drawn by Mariko herself). And when he arrived, they all sang a special version of their song, Namida Surprise, to him. They presented him with a cake and asked him to make a wish and to blow out the candles. AKB48's leader, Takamina said a couple of words, before the man of the night took center to thank everyone.
They took a group shot with Akimoto in the middle and then had a toast of what appears to be cola/red wine, champagne and orange juice. He then took two shots with some of the members in the group at the party such as Kojima Haruna and Takahashi Minami. The pixelated image is that of Akimoto's favorite sweets.
Later on into the night, Kashiwagi Yuki and Minegishi Mianmi performed magic tricks for the guests, their identity hidden by their festive masks. Takamina continued to MC. Shinoda Mariko also photographs the man with deco'd ties that she's given him as gifts. It is quite certain, a night that they won't forget.
