AKB48’s Takahashi Minami cuts her hair due to fire accident

On May 9th, it was reported that AKB48’s Takahashi Minami cut her hair after being involved in a fire incident.

According to persons concerned with the investigation, the incident happened on May 4th around 2:30 pm. Before going in to work, Takahashi went shopping at a clothing store in Sarugakucho, Shibuya. She had been carrying a paper bag from a different store in her right hand. The shop was decorated with aroma candles, and one of the candles lit Takahashi’s paper bag on fire. The fire was immediately put out by the store clerks, and no one was hurt.

At the time of the incident, Takahashi said that she smelled something burning. She then realized that her bag was on fire. After the fire alarm went off, a store clerk called 119 (Emergency Telephone Number in Japan).

Takamina apologized for worrying people (because of the rumors about the fire), not just because she cut her hair.

Is it just me or does she look like Ucchi with that short hair?

I can kind of see it, actually.

I will miss her big hair, since it's such a big part of her idol character, but she looks really mature and pretty with the shorter cut! I'm just happy that she is okay.

i didn't notice that it is her...

This seems so ridiculous. I bet she was tired of the pineapple and cut it on her own but akip needed a story that would hide her rebellion. This is all for the fans...

i think so too, it's like they just put the two incidents together and tried to make an excuse out of it lol.

I think this is an upgrade.

I really have a hard time believing that she smell of her bag burning is what alerted her to the fire instead of the smell of her hair on fire.

Burning hair is one of the WORST smells out there, and it lingers. When I was in middle school a classmate of mine was leaning back in his chair and his hair accidentally caught fire from a candle on the teacher's desk behind him. The smell was horrible... had to air out the classroom for the rest of the day.

maybe her hair was too big for her to detect it?

It's cute.
And obviously this fire wasn't hair fault - what is she apologizing for? Going shopping in her private time?
Come on!

IT'S CUTE. It really suits her and gives her a new look. Girl is flawless anyway though. <3

OMG, I'm so fucking sick of the old hair style and I think it didn't suit her at all so I'm soooo glad she cut it and she looks sooooooo good now.

It's great she wasn't hurt by the accident and now she can change her hair lol.

I prefer this than her old hairstyle. She looks fresh and mature.
