Togasaki Tomonobu presents Handshake Event report from Nagoya Dome

  February 23, 2013

This weekends, again, AKB48 general manager Togasaki Tomonobu provided us an interesting report on Handshake event held at Nagoya Dome, Nagoya.

Togasaki Tomonobu 11:03 AM

We will have a handshaking session via radio from 11:30 AM!!
The songs that were ranked from 151 to 200 on this year’s “REQUEST HOUR SET LIST BEST 100 2013” will be announced today.
Please look forward to it!
Something is written on the whiteboard. I wonder if you can read it.



Is it only me that thinks these washing stands make the room looks like soo restroom…. But no actually this is a green room of Nagoya Dome.

Shimazaki Haruka 11:21 AM

We are at Handshake event for UZA in Nagoya.

Today I pair with Itano-san!



Togasaki Tomonobu 11:21

It took me 10 minutes until I arrived at the end of the line… I thank the big crowd!



Looks like both Tomu and Ryoka have stand (supernatural power in Manga, Jojo). Ryoka’s one seems to be stronger than Tomu’s?

Togasaki Tomonobu 12:04

After the preparations is over, the younger members started having fun in the corridor. On the right photo is Macchan. She was born in the same planet as Shinobu.

Ryoka is buried in Macchan’s body.

On the left photo is TanoTtomu.


Togasaki Tomonobu 12:42

Look at Yuko’s movement! So dynamic and exciting!

Togasaki Tomonobu 12:44

We haven’t been to Nagoya since last September!

Plus, this time, we hold handshake event twice, two days in a row, Saturday and Sunday!

The excitement is going up.

Togasaki Tomonobu 12:45

I  appreciate, from the bottom of my heart, the fact that so many fans has come here to support AKB48.

Togasaki Tomonobu 12:50

It’s an absurd short skit.
The keywords that fans gave were, “buttocks”, “Paruru”, and “insect”.
The members who will do the short skit are Itano, Shimazaki, Yuko, and Fujie.



Oops Mr.Togasaki accidentally included a  cheat sheet of Takamina’s comment on Charity for Tohoku earthquake in the photo?

Togasaki Tomonobu 13:02

Great job. It was only to be expected from them. Please wait until it gets uploaded.

Penalty game is “impersonation of Miso-Nikomi Udon (Udon Miso Soup).

How in the world will they impersonate Miso-Nikomi Udon!?!?

Members have uncanny talents….

Togasaki Tomonobu 13:04

They were so cute.

Jyuryoku Sympathy!

Togasaki Tomonobu 13:08

So Long!


Did Matsui Sakiko’s Oshi show up today?

Togasaki Tomonobu 13:16

To the members of OJS48!! We feel secured every time you are here.
The fans can come to the venue and watch the show with ease because you are here to guard the members and keep the security in the event.


Short neck….. Nope it’s “No Neck!”

(No Neck is a nickname of Ohba Mina since her neck is so short that it’s hard to recognize that she actually has a neck.)

Togasaki Tomonobu 13:20

The radio and event members


Who in the world can enjoy this video footage LOL

Oh Sakiko, perhaps?

Togasaki Tomonobu 13:22

Nonfiction footage shot: OJS48


Unfortunately this post made quite a fuss among fans. Because in the last photo, Paruru, crossing her arms, happened to look as if she was looking down to a physically challenged person ….

But wait! Look at the photo! I don’t know whether she is crossing her arms or not, but if she is, it’s the gentlest way to cross arms, isn’t it? (and her gracious smile!!)

I don’t think this is an indication of her being rude or insensitive.

Togasaki Tomonobu 2:59 PM

This is the first Surprise of Request Hour Live concert for handshake event in Nagoya!

Kinjirareta Futari by Tano and Tomu!!



Tanochan has been asking to perform duet with Tomu, and thank god, it finally came true!

hopefully they let TanoTomu perform duet again in concert so we can watch their performance as video…..

Kato Rena 17:04

When I noticed that it smelled like shrimp all over the place, I saw the girls eating “EBISEN”,



Oh sweet Renacchi, why you’re wearing Pajama?

(Because she performed Pajama Drive which ranked at 192th.

Togasaki Tomonobu 5:43 PM

Infiltrated SKE48 Theater for the first time!




Togasaki Tomonobu 5:56 PM

You can enjoy a great view of the stage in this theater!!
Maybe it’s to late to say this, but it struck me why there are two pillars inside the AKB48 theater? It’s so mysterious.



But before Togasaki himself said that he couldn’t find anyone who could lend them a better space than this back then…..

Togasaki Tomonobu 6:10 PM

They’re singing “Koi no Plan” (Plan of Love). It’s so nostalgic.

Togasaki Tomonobu 6:17 PM

Take a sneak peek at SKE48 Cafe!

I learned Cafekko (Waitress at 48G’s cafe is called Cafekko) by the name of “Matakoya~ne” (Please visit us again in Nagoya-dialect) is popular here.
