    I seriously beg to differ regarding her cuteness, lol. It's surprising that AKB48 decided to base itself in Akihabara instead of somewhere like Shibuya. Maybe Mayuyu the cyborg had something to do with it [​IMG].
    Why don't you post that video of Wasamin under the Japanese section so that BCers can get to know her? I think she is just so cool.

    2011 Indonesia Open SSP: Misaki Matsutomo/Kenichi Hayakawa made it into the Main Draw

    .
    Misaki Matsutomo/Kenichi Hayakawa have made it into the Main Draw after their 2 wins at the Qualification Rounds yesterday;

    * Defeating Delynugraha Muhammad Rizky/Puspita Richi Dili (INA) 21-18, 22-20 in 31 mins.

    * Defeating Vitalij Durkin/Nina Vislova (RUS) 19-21, 21-17, 21-16 in 42 mins.

    In Round 1 today, they will be facing Chris Adcock (ENG)/Imogen Bankier (SCO)


    In Round 1 of the Womens Doubles, Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi will be facing Ha Jung Eun/Kim Min Jung (KOR) who are seeded No.5. This will be tougher than the Mixed Doubles event, I would guess.

    2011 Indonesia Open SSP Round 1: Misaki/Kenichi-vs-Adcock/Bankier

    .
    Adcock/Bankier and Misaki/Kenichi have played against each other only once before, at the 2011 German Open GPG, where Misaki/Kenichi lost.

    My guess for this time is Misaki/Kenichi can defeat them.

    My % guess: Adcock/Bankier 45%:55% Misaki/Kenichi

    Well done Misaki Matsutomo/Kenichi Hayakawa !!! :):):)

    Round 2 will be facing either;

    * Johannes Schoettler/Sandra Marinello (GER), or
    * Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter Juhl (DEN) [8]

    Most probably, Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter Juhl (DEN) [8], I think. :):):)

    Oh no, of course not, ha ha. But thanks to you, I now know who Wasamin is. Previously, I had only heard of Mayuyu in AKB48. But you can't deny that Wasamin is very cool, right?

    Yes, this will be a very tough match (against Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter Juhl [8])

    Let's hope the match would go to a rubber game. :):):)
