Maeda Atsuko’s parade in Akihabara canceled

It’s been reported that AKB48’s Maeda Atsuko parade through Akihabara scheduled for August 27th has been canceled.

After applications for her graduation concert exceeded expectations, Maeda requested, “Isn’t there any way I can greet them directly?” Consequently, her parade was planned for the 27th, in which she was to bid her final farewell to her fans before her graduation concert at AKB48 Theater.

The Olympics Medalist Parade was recently held in Ginza on August 20th attracting about 500,000 people to the event. As the police expected a large population to also gather at Maeda’s parade, they received instructions for cancellation due to security concerns.

Although the parade has been canceled, Maeda’s graduation concert will be held at AKB48 Theater as planned. This concert will broadcast live on Fuji TV’s ‘HEY!HEY!HEY!‘ as well as on AKB48’s Google+ and YouTube accounts.


Ah I'm excited, I hope they do Namida Surprise on that cake.

Do all girls who graduate graduate with this much fan-fair? I don't know how their graduations work.

Well, maybe because Acchan is AKB official "face" that she got all this? ^^;

Hell no. I wish they did, but Maeda has been the face of the group since it began in 2005. So she gets a lot of special things that other girls wouldn't.

I wouldn't say 2005...maybe around Oogoe Diamond is when she started getting super pushed. SakuHana 2008 too.

I remember when AKB didn't surround her only, it was lovely. Risa! Rina! Sayaka! Yay.

Ah Sayaka... Why oh why can't they let her have some senbatsu spotlight? I know I shouldn't be pressed about it cause she is getting work in other places (Variety shows and the such), but I want her to shine in AKB again like before...
