    That's not a random question ;) .....
    bit ... quickest and laziest Google search ever turned up this ..
    https://twitter.com/akimotooo726/status/713690372157800448

    but to be honest ... that seems to be the only thing?
    to be honest ... there only the tiniest connection of course, Sayaka graduated back in 2013 ... 7 years ago, and while she was/is well known enough to promote the Philippines as a tourist destination in Japan, I'm not sure if she would be equally well known in the Philippines to be able to promote MNL48
    I even doubt that apart from Miichan Yukirin, Shiichan up till Yuihan she might not even know or feel a connection with many current AKB members

    To be honest ... I get it that the guys is supposed to be the best sniper/assassin ever (and as she seems to be the baddy she'll loose for sure)....
    but lets face it ... irl Sayaka would probably beat the sh*t out of him with one hand tied on her back :)

    In case anyone's interested, I found out that Akimoto had acted in a LOT more shows, musicals, plays etc. than the wiki initially listed. Her list of media appearances is really impressive and the fact that she's now part of an American movie is really great!

    "a Yakuza-trained assassin"
    well, at least they didn't make her 'a Yakuza-trained ninja assassin', but .... stereotypes, they haz them :)

    (most funny thing is of course that Akimoto-san looks more Philipino than Japanese (even though she's of course without a doubt more Japanese) otoh ... I don't see Acchan in this role, or Kawaei ... or even Yuko)

    ow ... btw ... Akimoto-san .... finger of the trigger please, you might hurt someone by accident :)
    (trust me ... guns are kinda scary ... only thing that got my instructors in the army more nervous wer grenades :)
    (and I managed to get out of throwing one "hey, I'm a medic, we don't throw grenades' (which pissed off our lieutenant educuation ... but the lieutenant logistics (who was like me in the medical corps) had my back ... "WE don't throw grenades!!!!" (and he outranked the other lieutenant (1st class vs, 2nd class and professional soldier vs. temporary ) )

    The movie is not my taste but I would watch it. Sayaka looks very bad ass. I'm happy she made it into an american movie

    @dutchie I'm interessted in knowing all of it. I like Sayaka's acting a lot

    I'm surprised I've never heard of this movie series. I looked it up and Sniper: Assassin's End seems to be the 8th instalment of a series running since 1993. Has anyone else ever heard of them?

    I'm watching you.
    Because it's straight to dvd. cult stuff/stuff that wouldn't do well in the theatre. (at least I haven't seen this shown anywhere with a theatre thingy)

    Wikipedia says the very first Sniper played in theaters.

    "[Sniper] The first installment in the Sniper film series [and] was followed by seven direct-to-video sequels: Sniper 2, Sniper 3, Sniper: Reloaded, Sniper: Legacy, Sniper: Ghost Shooter, Sniper: Ultimate Kill and Sniper: Assassin's End.

    Sniper was held back from release in 1992. It debuted at number two at the box office on January 29, 1993, in 1551 theaters and went on to gross $18,994,653 in the US."

    That movie looks like it'll be terrible, but I'll watch it in support of Sayaka.

    I think that's also the point of casting her in this movie aside from she is really fit for the role. Sayaka has a big following among other casts even the male lead. To date 600k vs 10k twitter followers does not even compare.

    It's a shame this will be a direct to video release, but then again hollywood is hollywood..

    As Spike Spiegel said in Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, "I love the kind of woman that can kick my @$$". Sayaka looks so awesome in this.
