A place for me to write information about Akicha and show photos.

Another site with a lot of Akicha stuff:
Part 2 with pics from Akicha and other actors.
I'm a bit late with this but I've been busy. Because of lots of pics I must make two posts. Now the last performance of the Musical is over and it seems to have turned out good. The audience have laughed a lot and was pleased. Everybody was satisfied over Akicha's play and singing, but they were fans. I wait until I've got the DVD for my opinion. But I really wonder about the economy. A lot of people involved, 24?, a lot of rehearsal and then only 8 performances? Strange. Maybe the DVD will sell good. Now for the pics of flower stands. First the one I've contributed in. You can see the flag.
Rie visited the first performance.
Yes, tomorrow is the great day for the musical premiere. For me, for some of you it's already the 11th. But before the pics, Akicha's video producer have moved to a new address.
Ms. Aki Takajo, VAZ co. Ltd
4F, Daiwa Aoyama Bldg 3-1-30 Jingumae
Shibuya Ward, Tokyo 150-001
It's quite near Watanabe's office. I wonder what she's thinking of that. Or Watanabe.
Now to the pics, first from Tiary TV.
Yes, Akicha is now 26 years old. It seems that she had a quiet birthday, no big party. Maybe because she's busy with the rehearsal? She only got few congratulations on Twitter, Rie of course and some more. I think the same reason. But she got this plain and simple "cake" from someone.
Last update before Akicha turns 26.
I'm glad to show you my handpainted Edo style traditional Chochin with Akicha name I've ordered from a Tokyo shop. They are now delivered and will soon fly to me in Sweden.
Akicha isn't doing so much except for rehearsal so I don't have so much to write. But here is her address if you want to send a fan mail or Birthday greeting next week. Only mail, no gifts or presents.
Ms. Aki Takajo, VAZ co. Ltd
3F, Tail Wind Aoyama Bldg 3-6-4 Shibuya
Shibuya Ward, Tokyo 150-0002
And now for some pics. First from one of her Youtube videos, she's tricking with a Nivea can.
Bowling with some other musical artists.
Time for update. In fact, Akicha is mostly busy with rehearsal for the musical and we see a lot of pics from that and not so much more. But today was different. Yesterday she said good night quite early and today good morning at 5 o'clock. 7 hours later she posted a pic showing big leaves in water. My thought is that she and Tamao have travelled somewhere for shooting pics in a lake with lotus flowers. The future will tell if I'm right.
But now for facts. As you can see on the pic below she and Mariyagi will have a DJ gig at DiA Tokyo next month.
But pics from the musical rehearsal is mostly frequent. Here is a couple, I hope you can spot Akicha. The girl to the left on the first pic I think is the other graduated AKB48 member in the musical, Hitomi Komatani, but I'm not quite sure. They are joking a bit.
But the biggest news is that the rehearsal for the musical has started. The name of the musical is LA LA LA LA LAND or ら・ら・ら・ららんど I hope they don't will get trouble with copyrights. Akicha seems to mostly have individual lessons while the others practice together, but also all together like in the last pic. Unfortunately she's hiding behind a paper but she sits to the left.
Post 2 of 2 this day. Monday 28th Akicha and Mayumi was on Abema TV. It seems to be most about IWA and Mayumi from someone who like the restaurant but Akicha was there too. It started in Mayumi's apartment and ended at IWA. Tbh I don't know if Akicha was inkluded in the first part. She was really elegant.
And then on Tuesday 29th it was time for Akicha to meet her fans on Shibuya109 and VAZMart selling. It was only an Autograph session and no pics was allowed to be taken. I feel that strange but this is Japan.
Akicha have had a busy weekend and the days before and after, so I have to make 2 posts again. The week after Tokyo Street Collection she took it calm, just a few selfies.
Post #2 for today. Saturday the 19th. The big day when first Akicha and some former 48G girls as well as others was in Tokyo Street Collection fashion show. It seems to have gone well and Akicha was satisfied afterwards. After that she was in Girls Talk Collection, a Youtube streaming show. Two sessions, Akicha with one other girl in each. They can be seen at Akicha's Youtube channel, here's the first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlNGjGQyepY
And now for some pics, first from the fashion show.
Akicha seems to be everywhere now, I have to make two posts today. On the 16th she was on AbemaTV as I wrote earlier. On the 18th she was first on TiaryTV, recorded earlier, and after that she could be seen live in an iTune App and fans could send her messages. It was called Pokocha. I hope it is right, my translator is absent for the moment so everything is more difficult. Here are some pics.
Then it was time for another session on AbemaTV with two other YouTubers, Raphael and Reika Oozeki. What they were talking about I don't know but they used a virtual reality headset among other things. You can watch it here: https://freshlive.tv/app10/141305. The studio they used had a public window so people outside could watch, and take photographs. And they did, here are some pics from the performance.
Akicha seems to be everywhere. Last Saturday, the 12th, she was at an event that her Youtuber management office VAZ set up in Club Womb, a major DJ club in Shibuya, for their Youtubers. It was only streamed via an LIVE ME application in smartphones so it was nothing for me. 5 hours. Akicha and a comedian was MC:s. Here is a link to a digest: https://live.line.me/channels/21/broadcast/4533514
Some pic from the event, Akicha eating something and together with some other Youtubers. Then in MC action and the last from the Venue.
An eventful week. First a pic from Akicha with light hair.
Then the bomb was dropped, Akicha had 8 pages of pics in FLASH Magazine. Including some gravure pics. The first nude pics she ever have had. Not totally nude of course. I think this is a teaser for her coming Photo Book which will be released in October. Same photographer, her friend Tamao, and same publisher. Here you have a link to all pics and a teaser.
And today we got the news that Akicha together with 3 more former 48G members will appear as models at Tokyo Street Collection fashion show August 19th. The other members are Mariyagi, Reinyan and Natsumin, and there will of course be more other models.
Akicha is continuing to make ads for different things.
And a pair of more pics from the football(soccer) video. Here is a link to the video if someone have missed it. https://youtu.be/pIUjN0-aVlI
Then we have the big news. Akicha's video production team VAZ Mart is opening a temporary shop at Shibuya 109 for selling Akicha merchandises among the other involved artists. Akicha will be there on August 29. I hope you remember AKB48 song 109 Marukyuu from stage A6?
And yesterday Akicha, Rafael and another girl had a live broadcasting show. It was mostly for promoting smart phone games. I couldn't watch, it didn't work properly for me. Incessant short cuts with some secs interval. But it's possible to watch it later. https://freshlive.tv/app10/138708
Last Friday Akicha and a couple of other 48G girls had a BBQ party. They were Akicha, Mocchi, Shiichan, Mariyagi, Rie, Myao, Abemaru, Miorin and Chori. Here are a bunch of pics from different girls' Twitter accounts.
First we have a happy Akicha when she had got her hair fixed.
Akicha and Mocchi met somewhere for a chat. Maybe planning for the next BBQ party? Akicha got a funny reaction when she realised she had the same shirt that Mocchi wore on her last Birth Day. No wonder both French Girls had shirts with french written on it.
Akicha take it cool with her dogs in her parents home on a hot day.
Akicha retweeted this. Underground idol group-Kamen Josi=Masked Girls and Akicha taped the promo video for soccer game Winning Eleven. The Kamen girls played soccer, Akicha was the manager of the team. The video will be uploaded on Akicha's Youtube.
But yesterday we got some real news, Akicha will be in a new theater performance in November called BAMBI SHOW. A Sketch show, at least a couple other actors are rather famous & the theater is in the center of Tokyo. It's in Shibuya, the capacity is 250, x1.5 bigger than the last one. Akicha is moving upwards. She haven't wrote any comments yet by herself, she might still have a good life on Hawaii.
Akicha takes it easy but sometimes she's absent from Twitter. Today she told us that she's planning this year end and next year, she's a bit too early maybe.
We have got some pics, for example having breakfast with Lu-chan.
But yesterday she suddenly was acting in a commercial video for NEXTSTAGETOKYO, a big job hunting session by a recruiting service company. It's not one of the top ranked service providers but at least much more major business than her theater works. Sounds good. Here is a link to that video.
And today we got the news that she will be a star in a horror movie. Not a bigh one, it's the same production/director/writer that did the same kind of horror movie with Mariyagi. Only on DVD.
And here we have a bunch of pics as usual. First from TiaryTV.
Today we got more info about the Musical Akicha will participate in. If Google is right we have these names: Tomoaki Nakatani 中谷智昭, Akicha 高城亜樹, Yusuke Ueda 上田悠介,Kimunamuho キムナムホ, Hitomi Komatani 駒谷仁美, Maria Koyama 小山まりあ, Sho Haruyama 春山翔 and Hikari Kamata 鎌田ひかり. Hitomi is interesting, she's a former AKB48 (1st gen) and SDN48 member.
Akicha has as usual posted a lot of selfies and other pics the last week. Here we have some of them. The first with another DJ, DJDRAGON who she'll meet on the 24th this month. Then visiting a new hair saloon.
First, Yahoo Japan had a note about that Akicha have become a YouTuber. https://news.yahoo.co.jp/pickup/6243153
Then a last pic from Pinsupo stage drama with all the actors and staff in the Theater. Quite a lot of girls. The pic was uploaded on Twitter after I've made the earlier post.
Then some pics from TiaryTV, it looks like Akicha is liking her job there. If I understand it right she talked about dog clothes but she's not holding Lu-chan. I wonder if Akicha's own brand is still working? Must check.
Now the Pinsupo Theater Drama is finished, 7 performances in 4 days. It seems to have worked out well. Akicha was satisfied and so was all the fans who have been there. I couldn't go, it's too far away. But I've been promised to get some pics and the CD with soundtracks, a fan should fix that for me. I hope there will be a stage DVD too later.
There was a couple of former AKB members at the theater, Akicha, Naanya and Meimei was acting. There was an after stage talk show some days and on June 9 Aerin and Hikari was there as Akicha's guests. On the 10th Ryochan, only 2 days after her graduation. But also present AKB members came to see the drama, for example Megutan.
There have been a lot of pics on Twitter with Akicha and also the other girls who was playing, I can only show a part of them. But first a pic from TiaryTV from Friday, Akicha's normal live is continuing. Tomorrow/today, the 12th, she and Mariyagi will have a DJ gig i Osaka.
First about Stage48.net. The forum is down again now. First it was problem with the Bandwidth, now it seems that the domain's expired. Someone havn't payed the bill? I'm glad I have my own place to write on, even if I don't have so much to write. The rehearsal is continuing, now it's only 4 days left until the premiare. But we get a lot of pics, mostly when they are eating.
As I said before Akicha and the other staff recorded a new series of TiaryTV shows. We have got some more pics.
But the best comes at the end, Akicha will play a theater musical main role in October. It seems to be a comedy by a small independent theater company. "La la la Laland". More info will come later. She's moving on.
A couple of Akicha's playmates in Pinsupo stage play have also presented themselves togother with Akicha, so now we know there names, or nicknames. I don't know if it was all of them. We already know Naanya and Meimei and here are the others.
Akicha also told us she today should record a couple of TiaryTV shows. Just what a thought some days ago.
Latest news from Akicha world. She went to new products showroom of fashion brand HONEYMEHONEY together with Kyoko, one of the other actors in Jiman no otoko. And of course she ordered some clothes.
Then we got the first pic of Akicha together with her older sister Jui. Many of Akicha's fans already know Jui but we haven't seen them together before. And it wasn't long time ago we saw Akicha together with her younger sister Mikono. Maybe she feels safe enough to present them now.
The same Friday we got a lot of complainings from Akicha. During a rehearsel for the next drama she had dance a lot and got a lot of muscle soreness, she haven't dance since she graduated. But the pic she posted tells us she like to dance.
I can also add that she seems to cook in her Youtube videos.
Today May 15 was the General rehearsal of Akicha's new drama. The name is ぴんすぽ！-Pin supo. Pin supo means PIN Spot Light's type of stage light. The story is about an underground idol group which is about to disband. The show is produced by Japan Award Promotion-a model/idol management office which is not so well known. And they named the cast girls Dream Princess. Here are posters and some magnifications of Akicha.
Akicha, Nanya and Meimei is the most popular girls in the cast and therefor they are shown on the posters, the rest of the girls is really underground, which means no major exposure, no major management office and so on. I don't know how the rehearsal turned out but we have got a lot of pics of Akicha together with some other girls.
Again I have to devide all pics from the weekend. First a pic from TiaryTV.
Now it has been Golden Week in Japan and Akicha have spent a lot of time with her family. They seems to have eaten a lot. But first a pic from TiaryTV. Then comes some family pics, and at last we got a pic of her younger sister. More food and then Olive spa. And at last Akicha loving Strawberries.
As said before Akicha and Mariyagi had a DJ gig at SWAG last Wednesday May 3rd. I'm a bit curious because SWAG is a part of DiATOKYO where they are resident DJs but here they are labeled as guest DJs?Never mind, here are some pics.
Akicha has started making VLOG, video log. So far only one.
Beside that we've mostly seen selfies, with or without Lu-chan. She was at a cafe together with Lu-chan but not Nongul. It seems that Nongul is closed. And tomorrow she and Mariyagi has a DJ gig. Here are some pics.
Time for a new update, it happen things every day. First we got a pic according to a shooting for the Photo Book, this time in Kyoto.
Naanya posted a short video on her Instagram with her and Akicha but first I thought it was an old video because Akicha had long hair. Then posted Akicha a pic with they both and Akicha with long hair? But later Akicha told us on her blog that she uses extensions again. I hope she don't cut it again.
April 18. Blood cleansing together with Rie At Roy:s. I wonder if this is necessary?
Same day. Told us she have started a LINE BLOG. Probably she have left Ameba? But why she showes this pic I don't know? http://lineblog.me/akitakajo_official/
First, her Photo Book will be made. She needed 3.5 mn Yen and she has got more than 4 mn Yen. So now we are waiting for the Book and I hope I can buy it too. It was difficult for foreigners to participate in the crowd funding and I couldn't accept the terms.
The other big news is that she will will play the main role in a drama in June. Stage Dream Princess. Also Naanya and ex SKE Meimei will participate.
But now for some pics. With Lu-chan.
Then she's been on a streaming show called NamaTV. It's produced by a major publishing company KADOKAWA. Ex 48 girls are doing the MC. This was episode 1 and Akicha was the guest. Aipon ex Team8 was MC. Nothing special, they talked, played games and drank weird drinks. Here are som pics.
Akicha is still active and I've had a lot to do so I'm a bit late. Now Akicha has been on web TV twice. First on Abema TV on Thursday 6th. Unfortunately I don't know what the program was about but she was not there alone. Two pics and a link. The program is nearly 2 hours.
Edit: Just after I post this I recognized that Akicha have more than 60.000 followers on YouTube.
Then on Friday 7th she was on TiARY TV where she should stay for a while. Three pics and a link. This program was only half an hour long.
Then I have three more pics she have uploaded on Twitter.
Akicha is very active now so it's a bit hard to follow her. We have now got the premisses for buying her Photo Book. Fans can order different offers, from only the book up to have a dinner with Akicha and the photographer Tamao. She need to have orders for 3.5 mn Yen for finish the project, so far she have a bit more than 1 mn. We'll see how it goes.
Akicha seems to have ambitions to be a YouTuber. Now she have uploaded 13 videos with different subjects, including an April Fool Joke. She talks or have guests. Some guests who is more popular than she is. But let's se for the future, she has already 53k followers. The number of followers on Twitter is also increasing. I wonder where it ends?
She also upload a lot of pics on Twitter and Instagram. Here is a couple from the last week. The first is together with the photographer Tamao.
First the news that Akicha will be a regular commentator of a short late night Kanagawa local TV show about fashion and make up. Starts in April. Present website, but it will change: http://beauty.tiary.jp/tiarytv.php
And now to the MC job. Akicha was MC on an indie show with young idols singing old hits from the 80:s. Akicha also sung some songs. Small show, 2 performancs in a 200 seat venue. Hera are pics from the venue and the girls.
