The logo of the group, because like AKB48, getting a picture will be quite hard.
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 Wiki Magic Love.

NMB48 provides examples of the following tropes:

  • A Cappella: This version of "Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo", performed at the 2012 Kouhaku.
  • Auto-Tune: Mostly averted, but still featured in "Kamonegikkusu" and "Must be now".
  • 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", "Bokura no Eureka", "Ibiza Girl" and "Dorian Shounen".
  • 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.
  • Crossover: Sayanee and Milky are common members of the senbatsu in AKB's singles, both holding concurrencies in AKB. Team M member Shiroma Miru holds a concurrency in AKB's Team A, too.
  • Deserted Island: In "Bokura no Eureka" the girls arrive at one.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: The cover of the second album shows the girls carrying bottles carrying some kind of liquid... which doesn't really look like champagne.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It is based in Namba and has at least 40 members.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: In an episode of "Geinin!! 2", Sayaka and Miyuki switched bodies after tripping and knocking over a magic daruma.
  • FriendlyRivalry/TheRival: With SKE 48
  • Hair Decorations
  • Hotter and Sexier: Many of their songs fall under this, although they've tamed a bit since "Kitagawa Kenji".

  • 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 such as "Takane no Ringo" 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".
  • Overly Long Name: "Nagiichi" is short for "Nagisa de ichiban kawaii-ko" ("The cutest girl in the beach"). "Kamonegikkusu" is also a portmanteau for "the duck shoulders its onion", a Japanese saying.
  • Punk Rock: "Punkish". Enough said.
  • Sailor Fuku: Worn by the girls in "Oh My God!".
  • Space Clothes: In "Kamonegikkusu".
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Word of God hasn't confirmed how カモネギックス is spelled: most common spellings are Kamonegics, Kamonegikkusu and Kamonegiks.
    • Another very common spelling, and the most likely spelling of the title, is "Kamonegix"
  • 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 most of the members of NMB have dyed hair).
  • Zettai Ryouiki
  • Zip Me Up: The lyrics for "Zipper".
