    I was playing the 2007 Spring Concert while I was doing some work today (not recommended if you actually want to be PRODUCTIVE, of course), and a thought occurred to me, seeing the whole lot on stage together like that.

    If you had to assemble a team of 14-15 AKB48 members from any/all teams, which can include SEEDS if you want to pick some of them, too, who what would your "dream team" look like?

    I encourage your list not to be just your favorite 14-15 girls, unless you really think all of them would work THAT well together. Mine definitely has some of my favorites, but definitely not all, and it also has a good amount of girls that rank very low on my list overall-- I just think they'd all work well together, for example.

    And if you want, throw in the stage you think your Dream Team would totally OWN.

    SO! Here's what I came up with, just listed in the order they came to mind:

    - Akimoto Sayaka
    - Kashiwagi Yuki
    - Watanabe Mayu
    - Sato Natsuki
    - Nozomi Kawasaki
    - Miyazawa Sae
    - Nakanishi Rina
    - Ohori Megumi
    - Masuda Yuka
    - Saotome Miki
    - Inoue Naru
    - Ohe Tomomi
    - Tanabe Miku
    - Itano Tomomi
    - Tojima Hana

    Stage they'd own: Nounai Paradise
    (I have to admit, watching Hana to Chire from that concert was the inital inspiration for this post. XD I was sitting there thinking, "Hmm, who would I want to see rocking out to this song?")

    And for the curious, I'll be keeping track of all the girls used in everyone's, and eventually I'll let you all know the "all-stars" for these Dream Teams-- who's used the most. :D

    ^ I got a question for you.. so how exactly did u came up with your team? Did u look at their ability to dance? sing? voice? etc.

    What exactly were your criterias? ^^?

    Hmm, well! For me, it varied by each girl, but in general, I chose people who'd cover a really broad spectrum-- like with some really strong, powerful members-- Sayaka, Yuka; some girls with really nice, melodic voices-- Kashiwagi, Ohe, Rina; some girls with even softer or cuter voices-- Nozomi, Sae, Mayu, Itano; and then some wildcards. Like I just wanted to keep Ohe with Tojima, and I would want to see Saotome, Tanabe, Inoue, Sato, and Ohori on stage with all the rest of these girls just because they seemed to "fit." Can't explain that last bunch so much. XD

    But it's all up to you! I didn't mean to regulate the post so tightly that everyone needs to meet a certain criteria-- if you want to make your team "all the strong voices," or base it around some other category, be my guest! You don't need to follow my criteria or anything.

    All I wanted to do was prevent people from just listing off their top 14/15 girls, because we already have the Ranking Thread for that. XD

    Plus, I really wanted to end up seeing who'd end up as the "all stars" I'd mentioned in the last part of my post. So, get creative, go crazy-- even if you don't have a clear reason and just have this feeling that certain girls would just "work" well together or "fit" in together, go right ahead. :)

    If you look into my list of *fav* girls (in my sig), some of them are actually grouped in terms of their voice range etc. and the others are like, the "kawaii" group, "elder" group, etc.

    But it does somehow relate also to their voices. Heh, I suck at describing voices anyway. ^^;

    Anyway, best of luck, and hopefully there'll be more fruitful responses. ^^b *thumbsup

    Even though a huge amount of these are my favourites, I am still thinking realistically.

    - Kojima Haruna
    - Komatani Hitomi
    - Maeda Atsuko
    - Nakanishi Rina
    - Narita Risa
    - Ohe Tomomi
    - Oshima Mai
    - Tojima Hana
    - Akimoto Sayaka
    - Noro Kayo
    - Sato Natsuki
    - Hirajima Natsumi
    - Kashiwagi Yuki
    - Katayama Haruka
    - Saotome Miki
    - Deguchi Aki

    Stage they'd own: Well it has to be A4. Mind if I make some dream units?

    My dream team first stage 「Tadaima renai chuu」
    04. 7時12分の初恋 (7 ji 12 fun no hatsukoi)
    Kojima Haruna, Komatani Hitomi, Maeda Atsuko, Nakanishi Rina, Narita Risa
    05. 春が来るまで (Haru ga kuru made)
    Noro Kayo, Kashiwagi Yuki

    07. Faint
    Ohe Tomomi, Tojima Hana, Deguchi Aki
    08. 帰郷 (Kikyou)
    Hirajima Natsumi, Katayama Haruka, Saotome Miki

    I couldn't think of where to put Ohe (7 ji or Faint), but since this is a dream, Faint.

    well there seem to be already an "All Star Team" within AKB48 the girls that always appear in the single PVs

    From Team A:

    1. Minami Takahashi
    2. Atsuko Maeda
    3. Tomomi Itano
    4. Rina Nakanishi
    5. Mai Oshima
    6. Haruna Kojima
    7. Mariko Shinoda
    8. Minami Minegishi

    From Team K:

    9. Yuko Oshima
    10. Sae Miyazawa
    11. Tomomi Kasai
    12. Erena Ono
    13. Sayaka Akimoto

    From Team B:

    14. Mayu Watanabe

    This are the regulars in every PV and the ones that I grew to like =P and they are probably the most well known, so they are like the actual Dream Team of AKB48

    This would be my Dream Team but I would also like to add:
    - Nozomi Kawasaki
    - Natsuki Sato
    - Kaoru Kayano
    - Natsumi Matsubara

    I hope these girls get more coverage in their next single =]

    Hey, it just occur to me: Why dont you guys(who lives nearby the theatre) send, I dont know what it's called, some kind of a request/fanmail to the management.
    The request is to temporarily reshuffle the team's composition. Or ask so that the girls perform songs they never or seldomly performed.

    Well it's hard to really chose, without just picking your top 15 :roll:
    But I've managed to unclude some members, who's not high on my list.
    My dream team:

    These members, because they're are my faves.
    Takahashi Minami
    Oshima Mai
    Oshima Yuko
    Kashiwagi Yuki
    Itano Tomomi
    Umeda Ayaka
    Nakagawa Haruka
    Inoue Naru
    Sato Natsuki

    These members, for other reasons.
    Maeda Atsuko - Because her and Takahashi is a great pairing.
    Matsubara Natsumi - She's just very cute... very cute
    Kasai Tomomi - Her and Yuko is a nice pairing
    Minegishi Minami - Because she's a very good dancer
    Shinoda Mariko - She has a deeper voice, and a good thing with a girl who's older than the others

    --- off topic post ---

    well i guess i can do that, but think of it this way:

    it's not really easy to just pick a girl and let her start practicing moves for a dance number she has never done, and then expect her to go and perform it the next day. i mean, i admit some of the steps are quite repetitive, especially on songs that involve more members, but still, most songs contain steps that may take weeks to master. and with the singing becoming more "live", i guess it just makes it more difficult.

    now don't just give up hope yet. himawari has started exhibiting this very type of behavior you are describing (same girls but totally different dance steps, cameos, and sometimes a complete uncalled for reshuffle).

    I don't see why you'd have to live close to the theater to send a letter. The whole point of a letter is that you can be far away and you can still get the message to somebody ;)

    My dream team? Hmm... Let's see

    1. Oshima Yuko
    2. Masuda Yuka
    3. Minegishi Minami
    4. Nakanishi Rina
    5. Oshima Mai
    6. Takahashi Minami
    7. Akimoto Sayaka
    8. Umeda Ayaka
    9. Ohe Tomomi
    10, Miyazawa Sae
    11. Kojima Haruna
    12. Watanabe mayu
    13. Kashiwagi Yuki
    14. Maeda Atsuko
    15. Sato Natsuki

    Does it look too much like Team K ownage? If so, then I didn't do it intentionally, I reallistically (or as realistically as possible) tried to choose either powerful vocalists (Sayaka, Yuka, Ayaka), strong dancers (Mii-chan, Sae, Maimai), girls with amazing stage presence (Kojiharu, Korisu, Mayu) and the rest are girls that I think would be easy to work with i.e: Have nice voices for harmonizing, and stuff like that. Hey, not everyone can be the center. Oh, and I had to include Takamina, even though IMO she odesn't really fit in any of the above categories. She's a good performer, and I love her.

    The stage they would totally own?. Hmm... Tadaima Renaichuu

    7ji 12fun no Hatsukoi: Kojiharu, Acchan, Rina, Yuki and Mayu
    Junai no Crescendo: Korisu, Yuka and Maimai
    Faint Takamina (XD), Sayaka, Sae

    The problem is I dont know whats going on there as much as you guys who can visit every day of the week.
    Since I dont watch live performance, how can I tell which of them are on top at their game, on fire, at the zone on a particular moment.
    How can I recommend such dream team assembly?

    Thats why I need your help.
