    afaik, that was a temporary stage set up, with members of A and K and some research students being mixed together. One purpose (from what ive read from blog posts, but i do not know if thats canonic) was also to reduce the rivalry between A and K. There were two stages (H1 and H2) pretty early in AKB History.
    /edit: it was in 2007 and 08, respectively.

    It's been answer a few time, so I'll link to myself a few pages ago:

    viewtopic.php?f=17&t=95&start=7010#wrap

    rka001 was also correct that it's secondary reasoning is to reduce the rivalries between TA and TB (more specifically 1st gen and 2nd gen). Both Yuko and Takamina had mentioned that a few time or the early rivalry and they were actually among the ones taking the charges back then... :^^;:

    It's a possibility. That song hit Nico Nico sometime pretty soon after her scandal. Here's what yic17 posted a while back in Sasshi's thread.

    It was a song made by Vocaloid software. It's a commercial music making software that gave birth to Hatsune Miku.

    Anyway, no one knows for sure what this song is for since the creator never clearly mentioned it's purpose.

    However, the title of the song Sarishinohara (サリシノハラ) can be rearranged into Sashihara Rino (サシハラ●リノ)

    Also the lyric is about a regular boy who fallen in love with a star that refers back to her scandal

    So many Vocaloid fans and wotas believe this was written for Sasshi.

    Sasshi also later mentioned this song as one of her favorite Vocaloid song, so that's that.

    Oh, one more thing on H-stages. H1 "Boku no Taiyo" was also used for T4's first stage.


    EDIT: got beatten

    The concert scene also makes it clear she's sasshi I think. Isn't the boy her boyfriend? (the holding hands, etc)
    Actually listened to this song a while back, but I just thought to ask what it is just now. The song was originally sung by a vocaloid?

    Vocaloid is a damn powerful tool, I can't remember which version was original, but yeah that song is a Vocaloid creation.



    Edit: The original version is using Hatsune Miku voice base, according to Vocaloid wiki

    http://vocaloid.wikia.com/wiki/Mikito-P

    The singer in the one you posted is by りぶ (Rib), an online singer who does covers for bunches of Vocaloid songs.

    your question has already been answered but if you haven't listened to the stages yet, definitely do, they're awesome! i prefer them over most of their stages before those two.

    ^

    That's Sasaki Yukari, 12th gen KKS.


    Isn't that just an one of AKB's radio show? It aired from 2007-last year I believe. Basically like AKB's ANN show.

    I'm pretty sure that "BD" is meant to be "Birthday". "RS" is an abbreviation some times used for the kenkyuusei (Research Student).

    I've never come across the other ones but I guess they're supposed to stand for the following:

    BW = Team B's Waiting Stage
    STA = Shinoda Team A
    OTK = Original Team K

    Where did you see those?

    For the most recent Team K LOD I've seen uploaded to H!O, OTK would refer to "Oshima Team K". When I first looked at the name I thought it meant "original" too, until I looked at the date.

    Just more confusion caused by the shuffling [hehe]

    Oh but of course. :XD: I guess that only leaves UTB.

    I don't know if I like it shortened like this. At some point we might even have another captain that starts with the same initial.

    I'm more interested on how we're going to refer the old teams, just use the captain name from now on?

    so for example TA would be 1st Gen TA => original TA => TTA =>STA ? [hehe]
