I’ve said this before, but even though I don’t listen to their music (besides “Beginner“, that shit was legit), I do like certain individual members, but what I like the most is how fucking mad they make people.
Fans of both J-pop and K-pop rivals erupt in anger whenever AKB48 releases a music video or sets another sales record, and all those tears are so gloriously delicious.
AKB48 are playing chess while everybody else is playing checkers, and the other groups are PISSED. Their cries of “sluts” and “voting gimmick” and “fan service” make things awesome, as they get so bitter and jealous when their favorites are going out and doing the exact same shit but suck at it and are getting shit rained on them from the group at the top.
It’s inherently amusing to watch the butthurt pile up.
