My AKB48 Merchandise

Here's some AKB merchandise I own! These are, of course, licensed / official merchandise. Click to enlarge!

I'll start off with Theater pics, BLT's, Gachas and, well, pictures! (My albums are arranged by old teams.)

Mayuyu <3







Team B!



B! B! B!

Watarirouka Hashiritai Cards

On to Team A:



Takamina! Reinyan!


Akicha! Amina!


Acchan! Mii!

Team A!

Mariya! Wasamin!

Thunderous Team K Time!





Tomo~mi! Team K!


Costume cards and trading cards (Upper right is non-AKB: Idoling!!!'s leader Endo Mai, but since she has appeared on AKBingo!, January 8 and Junuary 15, 2009 episode, and since Idoling!!! is close to AKB's heart, she's cool with me)



Jurina! Kumi!

Anna! Shinkai!

Yuimin! Rena! Haruka! Oya!

Wimbledon! Tsukina!


Unless you're willing to throw wads of cash at me or make me an offer only an idiot would refuse, the above pics are not for sale! The pics below are, because some are duplicates. I hesitate to part with my precious silver Mayuyu pic, even if it is a duplicate, so I would only sell that if the amount is too good to pass up.

Tanamin, Korisu, Eiko Maeda, Shimazaki, Nakanishi

Gussan, Narita, former Kenkyuuseis

Naruse, Naruppe
Naruppe, Matsuyuki



All the singles released after my fandom started (which is sometime after the release of Iiwake Maybe). I preordered all the singles they have that have hit #1 up to the time of this posting. The first single I preordered was their first #1 single, River. Maybe I'm their lucky charm huh. Also included are both the albums they have released.

Unopened Theater versions (originally sold exclusively at AKB's Akihabara theater) of all the singles released since my fandom started, including Iiwake Maybe, and Kamikyoku Tachi. (Still buying Heavy Rotation though.)

Watarirouka Hashiritai's singles, all preordered, starting with the first single that hit #1 for them, Akkanbe Bashi. Again, it's interesting that the first Warota single I preordered is their first to hit #1. Also included is Watarirouka's first PB, Akkanbe.

Watarirouka Hashiritai's first album, "Rouka wa Hashiruna!", and their first image DVD (added Nov. 2010)

Mayuyu merchandise. Still to arrive are her official solo trading cards. My Kokoro no Hane below is also the Mayuyu version, of course.

Mayuyu's first solo calendar (added Nov. 2010)

CinDy's first solo calendar (added Nov. 2010)

More singles. One reason I love the Michiru Hoshino CD is because the girls wrote the songs in it.

The early AKB48 Welcome books from their first two stages.

Complete four-piece set of the original AKB Visual Books of 2008.

Complete three-piece set of the second version of the AKB Visual Books of 2010

More mooks! AKB48 Jump & Cry, one of the oldest AKB PB's, shown on AKBingo!, the first SKE48 Complete Book, and the first AKBingo! Official Book. All of them are actually pretty good!

More merchandise, including an Amina Sato Team B shirt.

3D Cards and Viewer!

Unopened posters that came with my singles. I will either sell these or post them when I move somewhere permanent. You know, because I'm moving to Japan just because of AKB. (In my dreams!)


  1. Dude, you are fuckin' AWESOME !! very good collection you have here man.

    and btw, how much did you spend for the shirt?

  2. Thanks! I got the shirt directly during its limited release, so if I remember correctly, I think it was 3000 yen each. Plus a fee for the one who bought it for me and shipping and other costs, of course. It's no longer available from the source, but auction sites have them, at horribly priced costs!

  3. Hooooly crap!

    I don't know whether I should be super jealous or overwhelmed by the massive amounts of merchandise. Look at how many trading cards / theater pics you have! How much do those things cost?

    Also, what is a BLT? (besides bacon lettuce tomato... lol)

    Relatively new AKB fan here, so this is still quite new to me. By the way, nice blog, I found it not too long ago and have been keeping up with it every now and then. Enjoy your posts.

  4. Thanks Dave!

    A pic can cost from a couple of yen to thousands of yen each, depending on the pic itself and the girl. Plus all the additional fees since I'm not in Japan.

    BLT stands for Beautiful Lady & Television, a Japanese magazine. From what I know, the early collectible pics were included in special edition BLT magazines, and although I think they don't do that anymore, the pics are sometimes still referred to as BLT pics. AKB still has a lot of collaborations with BLT, like the recent AKB x BLT shirts, like the ones I have.

    Thanks for the very nice comments, hope you keep coming back here!

  5. Nice set of pics you got there, i was wondering if you would be willing to selling some of your posters? if so , how much would it cost?

  6. Thanks iwa, I honestly am not sure if I wanna sell them, but email me an offer, and which ones you're interested in, and I'll think about it. My email address is .

  7. Thanks "iwa", for asking "Silver rain" obout the posters.

    Actually I was also wondering if you would *sell* those posters. (since you mentioned you *MIGHT* sell em) and for the offer, hmmmmm gimme a little time to think. ^.^

  8. Sure, you can email me. Mind you, though, I'm an oversentimental person who has great difficulty parting with his stuff. Imagine what my room looks like because of this. XD

  9. Hi PikachuKQ, sorry, I think I accidentally deleted your comment. No, I don't have them, I don't even know what they are. What are they?

  10. They are like a trading card collection of pictures, I won them in a claw machine at the Don Quixote and you were only allowed 3 per person I think, I got a lot of extras i wouldnt mind trading as well =D. I have some pics

  11. Oh, they look interesting, but if they're different from the pics and trading cards I already have, I don't know if I wanna collect those. Anyway, email me, what are you interested in, and I'll think about it. I also noticed you have MTG, I play as well.

  12. magkano na nagastos mo dyan? haha

  13. How much did I spend on them? An arm and a leg and possibly some internal organs.

  14. i want to buy one how much is it ....

    mayroon pa lang akb filipno !!! ngaun ko lang nalaman... hahaha

  15. Haha. Email me what you're interested in. Yeah, there are quite a number of Filipino AKB fans, but even more overseas. We're organizing another get together soon, email me and I can keep you updated, hopefully you can join us!
