I put my hand up to manage the AKB48 shop! Its popularity would be astounding compared to these aging pop queens!

more like wanting the fans to say thank you by shelling out money for things they don`t need.

“This store is a way of showing our appreciation to our fans,”

Of course! I knew I was missing something when I thought it was a way to scrounge more money out of them. It was silly of me to think a shop might be a commercial venture and not just a way of expressing their sincere gratitude by selling things to their fans.

Owwwhhh! The middle age metrosexual talentless men! I'd love to take a visit on your vanity shop.
