Update(6/11): According to the info released by AFA Facebook, Abe Maria is not in the list…
Anime Festival Asia 2011 will be seeing the attendances of 3 members from AKB48, they are, Team A Sayaka Nakaya, Nakayan , Team K Miku Tanabe, Tanamin,
and Team 4 Abe Maria, Abe(Tentative).
Nakayan have always aspired to be a Voice Actress and this year she became one, as the voice of Ayane Hojo in Moshidora, the animated series, she is also part of WOTA4. While Miku Tanabe is a cosplayer and often cosplay for her Handshaking sessions in Japan together with WOTA 4, which includes Nakayan, Mayuyu and Aika Ota.
Maria Abe can be considered Singapore grown~ She took part in many of our local theaters, 2nd only to Singapore’s Center Amin. During which we saw her as a Research Student and then promoted to Team 4.
Thus if Amin is Singapore’s Center then Abe will be Singapore’s Musume~
