    It's the end of an era with AKBINGO dead. So many AKB48 shows ended this yr. Perhaps this is the beginning of the end for AKB48 too.

    akb haven't been what they've been for a long time now

    2010-2013 was their peak and they haven't been able to keep those numbers since

    I feel sad. I know they were not the same anymore like their first years when they were super popular.

    But still... end of an era :-(

    Fandom and idol stars never can be separeted.

    AKB48 and sister groups worldwide won't die.

    Sales volume of all of them since debut comes up $ 2.5 billion USD (2005 - 2019)

    That makes them to most successful girl group brand on this globe.

    The risk with so many sister groups is that they are "cannabalizing" on each other and hurting the main group.
