The sister group of AKB48 based in Niigata, Niigata Prefecture, founded in 2015.
NGT48 provides examples of the following tropes:
- Bilingual Dialogue: In the MV for "Sekai no Hito e" ("Людям всего мира", "To the People of the World"), set in Vladivostok, Russia,note Ogino Yuka and a local fan (dancer/cosplayer Arina Pochtareva) talk to each other in their own languages.
- Idol Singer
- Loads and Loads of Characters
- Motor Mouth: Ogino Yuka. In the 2018 Senbatsu Elections, she staggered a bit after delivering her acceptance speech due to being out of breath. A fan made a video overlaying the speech with Trap Music, which she approved of and retweeted.
- No Indoor Voice: Yamada Noe.
- Small Name, Big Ego: In an episode of AKBingo!, Yamada Noe jokingly bragged that she would wipe the floor with the top 48 Group members if given the chance. Against all odds, she later actually wins a flirting contest against the aces of the other groups.
