A November 10 "AKB48 Group Draft Meeting" will be broadcast live in its entirety on Hikari TV. The location of the meeting will be the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa.
At the "AKB48 Group Draft Meeting," team captains of all of the teams of AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, and HKT48 will confer with executives in order to nominate people who are necessary for each team and choose new team members. Candidates who passed through the auditions were nominated for the draft, and those whose teams have been decided will join their teams, performing activities as a "draft member."
Additionally, a documentary program that followed the twenty-nine applicants until the draft meeting will be available in November through television as well as video service. Viewers will be able to see things like each applicant's lessons in preparation for the draft meeting. Detailed information will be available on the "Hikari TV" official website.
