Maeda Astuko joins the filming of Shin-Doumoto Kyoudai, co-stars with Takahashi Minami for the first time after graduation
AKB48 member Maeda Atsuko joined the filming of “Shin-Domoto Kyoudai” (FujiTV, 11:15pm~ on Sundays) on 28th August, one day after her graduation from AKB48.
She joined the recording of the radio program, “Maeda Atsuko no Heart Songs” and the filming of the TV program on that day. According to the talks with people concerned, she looked relaxed and “doing her work at her own usual pace”.
As Takahashi Minami is a regular of “Shin-Doumoto Kyoudai”, as early as the next day of her graduation, they could have an opportunity to make co-appearances.
Takahashi had teary eyes from the beginning of the filming. As they watched a look back of their past 7 years together, Takahashi burst into tears while, in contrast, Maeda had a gentle smile on her face.
Maeda and Takahashi performed a duet of “Migikata“, a coupling to Maeda Atsuko’s 2nd solo single “Kimiha Bokuda” (released this June) Maeda kept smiling throughout the performance, but as Takahashi was overwhelmed by emotion at the end of the song and shed tears, Maeda also shed tears in sympathy with her. During the talk segment, Maeda confessed the episode that she couldn’t apologize when she had quarrel with Takahashi, which also brought tears to Takahashi.
This program will be broadcast on September 9, 2012 on FujiTV net.
She will make the first public appearance on September 4th for the event commemorating the release of the photobook, “Acchan”, at Fukuya Shoten in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
