My Pure·Happiness – NMB48 Geinin! Movie Announced

Happiest ***48 news that’s I’ve heard in awhile. NMB48’s comedy TV show Geinin! is being adapted into an original movie. The movie will have new characters including characters played by concurrent AKB and NMB members Yokoyama Yui (Yuihan) and Kotani Riho (Ripopo).

There are not many details about the movie itself and I’m left with so many questions. What happens to Jo Eriko’s character after Jo’s graduation last year? Do we see the return of all the NMB guesting members such Yoshida Akari (Akarin), Yagura Fuuka (Fuuchan), and Kishino Rika (Rika-nyan)? Do we see Football Hour return? Will the movie contain any improv comedy like in the TV show? Will Yamada Nana (Nana) finally manage to get some laughs?

Endless possibilities to think about. All I know so far is that I’m tremendously excited for this Geinin! movie. With the full HA! PV coming soon and now this, it seems like the acting bug is coming for the NMB members. And I love it.
