Minami Takahashi idol singer of AKB48. Source: http://www.hello-online.org.
Minami Takahashi known as Takamina will be graduating from girl group AKB48 in December 2015. So I decided to take the opportunity to pay tribute to her by writing about her. Takahashi, now 24, is the longest-serving member in AKB48’s history having joined the group back in October 2005. She has been a member of every one of the group’s singles so far and has even released a single of her own called Jane Doe.
This post follows up the one about former AKB48 center Atsuko Maeda holding fan events to commemorate her 10th anniversary in the entertainment business. It is interesting that both Takahashi and Maeda started their careers when they were 14 years of age. It is interesting because that by doing so, they join singer Namie Amuro who also began her career at 14. It will be interesting to see what this pop singer does as soon as she graduates from AKB48. Her life may take an interesting turn and she might decide to do modeling like former member Yuko Oshima. Oshima released the solo photo book called Nugiyagare! That photo book features Yuko displaying her awesome bikini body in Ibiza! You will not want to miss this! Takahashi may even do modeling in lingerie, similar to what singer Anna Iriyama did for the fashion magazine called Peach John. For Iriyama, that photo shoot marked the first time that she has done modeling in lingerie. Or Takahashi may choose to get involved with gravure modeling like the awesome Saitama born Yoko Mitsuya or Tokyo’s Miri Hanai. Hanai is known for her big breasts. Or if she gets very lucky, Takahashi may make it really big in gravure modeling similar to where Yoko Matsugane has reached. Takahashi is preparing for her transition to the next part of her career as she has chosen Yui Yokoyama to replace her as General Manager of AKB48 and its other groups.
