Atsuko Maeda

27 at the AKB48 theater,* [2] and was streamed live on

YouTube.* [4]* [14]

Atsuko Maeda ( Maeda Atsuko, born July 10,

1991, in Ichikawa, Chiba) is a Japanese singer and actress
known for her work in the Japanese idol group AKB48.
Maeda was one of the most prominent members in the
group, and placed rst among all AKB48 and sister group
candidates in the group's general 2009 and 2011 elections, and second in the 2010 election. She also appeared
on many of its album covers. On March 25, 2012, she
announced her graduation from AKB48;* [1] it was held
on August 27.* [2]* [3] She has since continued with a solo
singing and acting career.


1.2 Solo career

On April 23, 2011, Maeda announced that she would
make her solo debut with her debut single "Flower", released on June 22.* [15] It was met with commercial success in Japan, debuting at number 1 on the Oricon Charts
with rst week sales of 176,967 copies.
The follow-up single "Kimi wa Boku Da", released in
June 2012, was Maeda's last solo single while still a member of AKB48. It debuted at number two on the Oricon
charts and reached number one on the Billboard Japan
Hot 100.


On June 15, 2013, at AKB48's handshake event held at

Makuhari Messe, AKB48 announced that Maeda would
appear as a special guest at the group's summer concert series at the Sapporo Dome on July 31.* [16] There,
she performed her third single, "Time Machine Nante
Iranai" ( Taimu Mashin
Nante Iranai), which was later released on September
18.* [17] It was selected to be the theme song for the
live-action adaptation of Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo
(Yamada and the Seven Witches).* [18] Maeda described
the song as cheerful and funand hoped it would
liven up the show.* [19]* [20] Time Machine Nante
Iranaieventually peaked at number one on the Oricon
Daily charts,* [21] and number two on the Oricon Weekly
chart.* [22] On Billboard's Japan Hot 100, it debuted at
number one and stayed there for just the week of September 30.* [23]

At age 14, Maeda became a member of AKB48's rst

group, Team A,* [4] which composed of 24 girls and debuted on December 8, 2005.
In 2009, Maeda won the rst edition of AKB48's annual general elections, which are described as a popularity contest. As a result, she was the headlined performer
for the group's 13th single, "Iiwake Maybe".* [5] The following year, she placed second overall, but still had a signicant choreography position in the lineup for "Heavy
Rotation".* [6] Later that year, AKB48 employed a rockpaper-scissors tournament to determine the top spot of
AKB48's 19th major single "Chance no Junban". Maeda
placed 15th, which secured her a spot on title track.* [7]
Maeda would also win the group's third general election
held in 2011.* [8]

Maeda's 4th single Seventh Codewas released on

March 5, 2014. It was used as the theme song of the
movieSeventh Codein which Maeda herself starred in.
It debuted at number 4 on the Oricon charts and reached
number three on the Billboard Japan Hot 100.

Maeda was one of the members who sang on every

AKB48 title track since the group's inception. Her streak
of A-side appearances ended in 2011, when she lost to
Team K captain Sayaka Akimoto at a rock-paper-scissors
tournament which determined the featured members for
the group's 24th single "Ue kara Mariko".* [9]

On December 12, 2015, it was announced that Maeda's

rst album will be released later the next year. Eventually,
the album is set to be released on June 22, 2016.

On March 25, 2012, during an AKB48 Concert at the

Saitama Super Arena, Maeda announced that she would
leave the group.* [10]* [11] This caused a large buzz in
the Japanese news, and spawned a rumor (later proved
false) that a student from University of Tokyo had committed suicide over the announcement.* [12] AKB48 later
announced that Maeda would leave after the Tokyo
Dome concerts;* [13] For her nal performance, there
were 229,096 requests led for seat tickets.* [3] Her
farewell performance and ceremony occurred on August

1.3 Acting career

In 2007, Maeda played a supporting role in the lm Ashita
no Watashi no Tsukurikata, which was her debut as an actress.* [24] She starred in the 2011 lm Moshidora* [25]
and appeared in Nobuhiro Yamashita's 2012 lm Kueki


Ressha.* [26] She also starred in Hideo Nakata's 2013

horror lm The Complex.* [27] It was announced that she
will co-star with Tony Leung Chiu-wai in Kiyoshi Kurosawa's lm 1905.* [28]
In 2013, Maeda starred in a series of 30-second station
ID videos for Music On! TV where she played Tamako, a
Tokyo university graduate who does not nd a job and
lives at home where she just eats and sleeps, over the
course of the four seasons. This became a TV drama
special, and has been developed into a full-edged lm,
Tamako in Moratorium, the last of which is planned for a
theater release in November 2013.* [29]* [30]
Maeda starred in the lm Seventh Code, in which she plays
a Japanese woman in Russia who is trying to track down a
guy she previously met. The lm was shown at the Rome
Film Festival in November 2013, and was released for a
short theater run in January 2014. She released a single
of the same name on March 5.* [31]
