My Pure·Love – A Look Back at Naniwa Nadeshiko Part 1

It looks at though next week’s episode of Naniwa Nadeshiko could very well be the last episode of the series. It’s a shame that the series is ending so soon because Naniwa Nadeshiko is easily my favorite ***48 show, the one show I watched weekly without fail.

I’ve said that Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo introduced me to NMB48 and Naniwa Nadeshiko made me a fan. Just like the group has grown by leaps and bounds in the past 5 months, I’ve grown into a NMB fan, falling in love with this group. The show helped me remember the girls and realize how awesome and cool they really are. Even as my AKB fandom following seems to be fading, my NMB fandom following seems to get stronger and stronger as time goes on and I have to thank Naniwa Nadeshiko as the real catalyst in helping me find my favorite ***48 group.

I’m not sure how this will work, but I’m planning on just writing a few posts on the show. I felt compelled to look back at the older episodes and it was just nostalgic. I want to write about that feeling of how much Naniwa Nadeshiko and NMB48 mean to me. Whether it’s statistics, classic Naniwa Nadeshiko memories, or just more praise for the show like crazy, I’ll write whatever is on my mind for the next few days. Here is a look at which NMB members appeared on what episodes and how many episodes each member appeared in. Looking back, it’s sad that Shinohara Kanna (Kanchiru) was the lone current Team N member to never appear on the show. Also, I realized that I really, really miss Yoshida Akari (Akarin).
