AKB48 In Never-Never Land!
In a rare non-plaid-skirt appearance, the babes of AKB48 star in Peter Pan, the ultimate non-Japanese-values play! Methinks Wendy has a distinctly Lolita-ish look about her, and Captain Hook rather suspiciously resembles a manually-challenged Captain Jack Sparrow…
For those of you who have been living blessedly AKB48-free lives, at the moment you can’t turn around in Tokyo without seeing their smiling, sexy-schoolgirl faces. As far as I can tell, their major claim to fame is that 1) they’ve singlehandedly kept the pleated skirt manufacturers in business and 2) there are LOTS of them. 48, and counting.
