The second sister group of AKB48
, and like this one, it has more than 48 members currently split into 3 teams : N, M and BII, as well as a group of trainees.
The group currently performs in its theatre at the Yes-Namba Building in Namba in Osaka, Japan, with each team performing stages-set lists of songs.
Please list any tropes related with the girls directly in the character page, because it Needs More Love
NMB48 provides examples of the following tropes:
- Auto-Tune: Mostly averted, but still featured in "Kamonegikkusu".
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Most of their songs revolve around sexyness and Double Entendre... except the very cutesy "Kitagawa Kenji".
- Beach Episode: The PVs for "Nagiichi" and "Bokura no Eureka".
- The Cameo: The producer for Majisuka Gakuen 3 and AKB's documentaries Kenji Kitagawa makes an appereance as the teacher in the song named after himself. Also, NMB theater's manager Takeshi Kaneko makes a cameo at the end of "Bokura no Eureka".
- Cover Version: Teams M and BII perform existing AKB stages.
- Cross Over: Sayanee and Milky are common members of the senbatsu in AKB's singles, the latter holding a concurrent position in AKB's team B. NMB Team M Member Yagura Fuuko holds a concurrent position in AKB's Team A, and AKB member Miori Ichikawa also holds a concurrent position in NMB's Team N.
- Deserted Island: In "Bokura no Eureka" the girls arrive at one.
- Development Hell: Team N's first original stage was first announced in early 2012, but it didn't premiere until November 2013.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It is based in Namba and has at least 40 members.
- Hair Decorations
- Hotter and Sexier: Many of their songs fall under this.
- Idol Singer
- Intercourse with You: Averted in "Virginity" and "Junjou U-19". Probably played straight with "Bokura no Eureka".
- Joshikousei: The girls act as these in many of their PVs and their official TV series, "Geinin!"
- Loads and Loads of Characters: At last count, it had more than 70 members including the kenkyuusei.
- Megane: The school segments in "Kitagawa Kenji".
- The Merch: Also has official goods like files and snacks.
- Sailor Fuku: Worn by the girls in "Oh My God!".
- Space Clothes: In "Kamonegikkusu".
- Sugar Bowl: The PV for "Kitagawa Kenji".
- Yamato Nadeshiko: "Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo" basically revolves around this trope, reivindicating the image of a pure black-haired girl (that's why none of the members of NMB have dyed hair).
- Zettai Ryouiki
