    • Fyi.nota48fan.justcurious.

      I heard they are also doing a live broadcast to Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong (?) and some other places. Wonder what it’ll be about… Will it be live telecast for all 11hr on some cable channels or are they having JKT48 performing from Indonesia and such?

      Ronald, did you have any info on this? Or anybody else? A video link maybe. I think Sho was asked about it on the wideshows but didn’t get any english translations.

      • Kuku

        It will be streamed on cable tv

      How popular is flumpool? I really like them but never see much about them except the speculation that Ryuta Yamamura was dating the comedian from Harisenbon lol

      • shira

        I don’t know how popular is flumpool in Japan. But I’m one of their fans. In fact, he is dating someone from his high school and getting married next month.
