People were excited, members were excited, and it wasn't a wonder why. A week ago, the management of AKB0048 had posted an announcement on the official page, announcing some changes in the current concert plan. A week ago, it had been announced that the next announced concert was actually going to be the second next concert, and that the next one would be held a week from then. This fact alone had been enough to tip a lot of people off what was going on. AKB0048 only really ever did concert reschedules for one reason, and this stood to be true this time as well. The initiation of a new Successor. Some theorisits quickly started guessing which trainee it signified, but most of the ideas were quickly squished except one the following day when 00 released more details about the upcoming concert. Nishimura Karin, the first of the 7 members who had been given special admittance into 00 after the auditions for the 154th generation had ended, was going to succeed. As it stood, members had now gathered backstage. WOTA, friends and family had shuffled into the New Tokyo Dome. Some staff were waiting on standby to start the concert, while others were rushing about for final preparations. Nonetheless, everyone involved were looking forward to an event of celebration.
