Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

WH 7 DVD cover

My all-time favorite AKB48 sub-unit was the Watarirouka Hashiritai 7.

I had previously blogged about them on my post: “I already miss the WH7” linked here.

The name 渡り廊下走り隊 translates as the “Corridor Running Team” — and that is just what kind of trouble these girls are!!!

Some blah-blah: The original members were Mayu Watanabe, Haruka Nakagawa, Ayaka Kikuchi and Aika Ota.Natsumi Hirajima joined, but later left the group.  Mika Komori and Iwasa Misaki joined.  (Iwasa Misaki aka “Wasamin” is my favorite). There was also a temporary member Kazumi Urano.  In total there were eight ladies who were members.  Although four members have already graduated the AKB system,

If only I had my own light-stick!

All appear in this special DVD double- disc farewell concert.

They play all their great power-pop and dance hits!  There is even a little bit of “oompa” music! There is a LOT of prettiness to take in all at once.  I swoon as I write this!!!


I bought this on eBay because it was region-free. I don’t have to do those “computer thingies” on my PC to be able to watch it.  I have been ecstatically happy watching it on my PS3.

Disc 1 – is the farewell concert.  Disc 2 is all special features – and they are indeed special “behind the scenes” footage I enjoy as much as the concert.  Mayu literally lets her hair down, and it is fun seeing the girls just being themselves.  There are also special “Oshi-cam” moments when one idol is focused on during the show.

I will make a full review later, and share some of the images from this final concert at a later time.  Right now I am in Corridor Running heaven : )

I am a little sad that the WH7 is no more (there is a tearful goodbye at the end), but I am glad that the girls are moving on with their own lives, and otherwise moving on to bigger and better things in their showbiz careers.

“Doki Doki!” – my heart is going “pitter-patter”

                                   … or would, if I could spell “alliteration.”
