The swag general of the entire 48 group franchise Itano Tomomi and her equally glorious yet severely under appreciated BFF Kasai Tomomi (together known as Tomotomo) were recently spotted in the studio together.

According to Chiyuu's official blog post, the dynamic duo will be reuniting for Tomochin's 10th anniversary event held on the 17th of January where they will commemorate ten years of their beautiful friendship.

AKB48's ace and leader of the anti D squad, Mayuyu has been cast in character as a lesbian palace maid in Ooku, a period drama set in the Edo era. Her character's name is Oshima and she will have love scenes with the lead character played by Erika Sawajiri.

Aside from that she also had to learn classical Japanese dance and also the koto (traditional Japanese stringed musical instrument). To the surprise of the crew, Mayuyu learned the koto with just 2 hours of practice.

Ooku will premier on Jan 22!
