Recently, news have broken out saying Akimoto might be deciding to spread the AKB48 industry "outside of Japan." According to http://www.asahi.com/english/TKY201102010478.html Akimoto is currently looking into expansion into Taiwan. Is this a right choice? Should he try to make AKB48 into an international idol group? Should AKB48 remain as the popular group that resembles the greatness of Japan? Why would he do it though? Post your thoughts on this discussion on what YOU think is right.
