AKB48, SKE48, and SDN48 have a new ’48 group’ joining them: NMB48. It was all surreal and full of uncertainty when it was announced, but it’s become all the more concrete with television coverage of NMB48 auditions and the announcements of names who made the cut.
The NMB48 site has put up a members page with everyone, so you know the drill; time to pick your potential favorites and memorizing their names and nicknames! The image below provides the members with their info, with the members I have hopes for circled in red:

it seems that the AKB48 members flying overseas to perform at Anime Expo 2010 have been listed.
maeda atsuko, takahashi minami, kojima haruna, takajyo aki, sashihara rino, maeda ami and kuramochi asuka from team A.
akimoto sayaka, yuko oshima, miyazawa sae, minegishi minami, ono erena, itano tomomi, moeno nito and fujie reina from team K.
Kitahara Rie from team B.
aside from some major lack of participation by team B, it’s a fairly strong line-up. performing at the Nokia Theater on the first day of AX 2010, it will be AKB48’s first visit to the west coast.
