Yuko Oshima is the most popular member of all-girl pop super-group AKB48, according to fans. AKB48 consists of a full 48 members, and the ever-changing roster is separated into smaller groups.
The group performed a number of songs at the AKB48 Amphitheater in Akihabara this week to mark the release of a new single. Atsuko Maeda, a member of Team A and the group's unofficial leader unexpectedly took the No. 2 spot, while Oshima placed first. As the finalists' names were read out, Oshima bowed deeply to the crowd. “I can't thank you enough,” she told fans.© Compiled from news reports
