"Emi Takei. She's quiet when there are talents and staff members from other agencies around, but when she's alone, she just does as she pleases. During a photo shoot, with the sponsor immediately next to her, she angrily said 'Huh!? I can't do that kind of pose!'. And the irritating part about this is that Takei's manager has never cautioned her about this at all. It's like leaving a clueless kid alone out there in the woods." - (ad agency staff)
"Atsuko Maeda has been very busy since she went solo, but people have been talking about how bad her choice of words are, even when she was still with AKB48. She never shows this attitude in front of the camera and the media, but she would tell noisy members in the dressing rooms 'Shut up, busu! (ugly)', or even tell other members who rejoice at cakes given to them that 'And you're all getting fat because you're eating stuff like that'. I heard that there was a time when the entire atmosphere of the place worsened just because of Maeda's grumpy mood." - (gossip magazine writer)
"This is a pretty known story among backstage staff members, but Osamu Mukai is pretty hard to deal with. When a certain media outlet interviewed Mukai just a while back, Mukai himself didn't seem too enthusiastic about the gig, and just answered with brief responses like uh-huh, sure, yeah, etc. to whatever question was thrown his way. The reporter still proceeded to interview him, but Mukai suddenly stood up and said 'We're done here!' and left. Mukai's agency apologized on his behalf for 'boycotting' the interview." - (showbiz writer)
He really didn’t look too happy when he was asked to come to the room of a local kid to play with him. And I thought at that time if it was alright for them to be showing that on TV.
But on another note, all of these talents are gori-oshis so I don’t care about their off-screen personalities, I just don’t like all of them w
He just says too many unnecessary things.
And it seems to me that Maeda’s just cautioning the other members so I don’t really care about that.
I’m fine as long as they’re cute and have nice bodies.
She’s not cute, but I’m beginning to like her, so I just hope that they stop overpushing her.
She’s that kind of woman.
