After the second General Election named their Top 48 members, MNL48 former members and Kenkyuusei were emotional during their Graduation Ceremony on May 1, 2019 at Movie Stars Cafe.

Performing their hit songs for one last time Ella, Gia, Jewel, Essel, Erica, Cassey, Madie, Necca, Nice, Princess, Vira, Mela, Yna, Karla, Hazel, and Sha bid their goodbyes to their fans.

“Masaya po ako kasi simula kauna-unahan hanggang huli, It’s Showtime days palang hanggang ngayon nandito kayo hanggang sa kahuli-hulihan ng journey namin,” said Ella, who ranked at the eighth spot during the first General Election last 2018.

Thankful for the fans that poured their effort and time for the group, Gia, who was in the 28th rank in the first General Election, appreciated their supporters for joining them for the last time. “We just want to say thank you po sa lahat ng nilaan niyong time para sa amin kahit anong mangyari ibibgay po namin ‘yung best namin para mapatunayan namin na worthy po kami of your time. Thank you po, hindi namin ineexpect na ‘yung salitang ‘fan’ pala ay susuklian pa ng mas higit pa sa pagiging fan, kaya sobra po kaming blessed.”

First Generation Center Girl, Sheki also gave an emotional speech for the graduates during the event. “Gusto ko lang sabihin sa inyo na maraming maraming salamat. You’ve done a lot for MNL48 para mapaangat ‘yung group. Lahat kayo may Center Girl spirit, sad lang na hindi ko lang kayo nakita lahat na mag Center Girl sa mga feature singles natin. Isipin niyo na lang na may plano si Lord para sa inyo, may nakatakda sa inyo. Gusto ko lang sabihin na hindi dito nagtatapos lahat.”

Still emotional from the second General Election, Martin Roy Regala will continue to support her oshi Gia in her journey. “When they ended with ‘Talulot ng Sakura’ parang fitting naman dahil it’s a graduation song pero mas emotional sa akin ‘yung ‘365 Araw ng Eroplanog Papel’ kasi it’s my favorite song and si Gia pa ‘yung center nung performance. Mabilis akong umiyak, mababaw luha ko, when I saw them cry, nagpipigil lang ako,” he expressed.

Long-time fan Brenan was also heartbroken to say goodbye to his oshi Nice, “sad po kasi ayoko pong makita na matapos ‘yung journey po nila, ayoko po silang maalis pero sana po hindi na siya sad. Don’t lose hope po marami pa pong chances may reason po baka po may mas magandang opportunity po for you.”

The fans were also able to shake hands with the 16 First Generation members and Kenkyuusei graduates for the last time. “Sinabi ko po sa kaniya na maging happy po siya kasi andito lang po kami para sa kaniya,” Brenan added when he met up close with his oshi.

05/01/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

A new chapter begins for the Philippines’ first idol group as MNL48 debuts official Second Year Members in a press conference today, April 30, 2019 at Movie Stars Café.

The groups’ second annual General Election was held last Saturday, April 27 at ABS CBN Vertis Tent where the official members of MNL48 Second Year were revealed.

This year’s election, 48 girls out of 77 candidates was selected by the fans, through a voting system, where Aly was crowned as the new Center Girl following Sela at rank 2 and Aby at rank 3, switching places from last year’s election.

Getting a higher rank this year, Sela emphasized the best and tough part of being an MNL48 members since the Second General Election ended, “since ‘yung system po naming is by ranking, rank is just a number for us and it can’t define you as a person or our capabilities. ‘Yung the best part as an MNL48 member is to inspire people through your works, through your progress to motivate our fans and make them happy. We’re very blessed na binigyan po kami ni Lord ng talent ng capabilities na kaya naming magpasaya ng tao, that’s the best part po. I think the tough part of being an MNL48 member po is ‘yung voting po kasi every year po kami may General Election and I think the voting system is very tough for us.”

MNL48 Second Year Center Girl Aly expressed that Sheki and the First Generation members are her inspirations to lead the group as the new Top 1. “Ate Sheki is my inspiration for being the new center girl and for me as the center girl of the Second Year members. This is a new beginning, the new chapter of MNL48. I will dedicate this to all of us, I will continue what ate Sheki, the First Generation started, and that is to propagate the idol industry here in the Philippines.”

Meanwhile, joining the MNL48 for the first time at rank 6, Jamie shared how she will face the challenges of being a new member of the group. “The best thing that I have right now is my determination and my passion and my love for what I do po. Whatever challenges that may come after me, I will accept them and treat my mistakes as a lesson and become a better person through this. I’m going to make my first generation seniors as an inspiration to do my best and to give my all into every performance.”

Moreover, Senbatsu will perform the fourth single of MNL48, lead by Center Girl Aly, together with the Under Girls for its coupling song which will be released in July.

MNL48 named their Second Year members and New Center Girl

04/29/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

The final results of MNL48’s second General Election were announced naming the idol group’s official Second Year members, revealed new rankings, and crowned new Center Girl on April 27, 2019 at ABS-CBN Vertis Tent in Quezon City.

The MNL48 Second General Election is an annual event where fans get to vote for their favorite members who they think should be part of the Top 48, following the system of MNL48’s international sister group, AKB48.

The official members will be grouped according to their rankings based from the voting result: Senbatsu (Top 1 to 16), Under Girls (Top 17 to 32), and Next Girls (Top 33 to 48).

For this year, a total 77 candidates took part in the election but only 48 idols were selected by the fans to be part the official Second Year members and hailed Aly, who ranked at 26th spot during the first General Election last year, as the new Center Girl.

“I just want to say thank you, papa Lord for giving me this. I will never, never, never forget to say I really, really love you,” Aly expressed.

Following the Center Girl is Sela at rank 2 and Abby at rank 3, switching places from last year’s election, while First Generation Center Girl Sheki took the 4th spot.

“Para sa inyong lahat ito, sobrang saya ko po ngayon dahil andito po kayo. It’s been an honor po na maglingkod sa MNL48 for three consecutive singles po. Sana po suportahan niyo pa rin ang MNL48,” said Sheki.

To be the Center Girl and a member of Senbatsu is what all candidates aim in every General Election as this group gets to perform the new single and will have more exposure in terms of appearances, activities and performances, that’s why Rowee who was previously part of the Kenkyuusei (Trainee) last year couldn’t believe her fate as she took the 16thspot.

Meanwhile, following the Senbatsu is the Under Girls (Top 17 to 32) where Thea, who was at rank 45 in last year’s election, climbed up to rank 17 making her the Under Girl’s Center as they will perform the coupling single of MNL48 Second Year’s next single.

Completing the Top 48 were the Next Girls (Top 33 to 48) where Andi took the 48th spot from being a Kenkyuusei (Trainee) last year.

Here is the full list and rankings of MNL48 Second Year members:

Still emotional from the turnout of the event, Aly’s avid supporter John Cabahug expressed that MNL48’s new lineup, especially for Senbatsu and Kami 7, is unexpected. “First of all, happy na happy talaga ako kasi ‘yung kami-oshi [most favorite member] ko ang naging Center Girl, hindi talaga madali mag-vote as in you have to input one by one,” he noted adding that he was relieved after Aly was announced as Top 1 of MNL48’s Second Year members.

The ranking results of the Second General Election ranking system were based 100% from the public voting happened from April 1 to April 26, 2019 through MNL48 official website and Fan Club app by using a voting ticket that can be availed by purchasing any selected MNL48 merchandise and MNL48 CDs.

The result was checked and verified by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) representative and Hallohallo Entertainment Inc. (HHE) officials to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the election data.

MNL48 First Generation and fans shed tears at the “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” Handshake Event

04/29/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

A day before the announcement of the official Second Year members on the MNL48, the official candidates and fans were emotional in their encounter at “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” Handshake Event on April 26, 2019 at ABS-CBN Vertis Tent.

MNL48 fans didn’t miss the chance to interact with their Oshi and watch them perform their hit tracks “Igai ni Mango”, “Bingo!”, and “364 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” for the last time as the First Generation members of MNL48.

MNL48 Center Girl Sheki looked back on how they started since they were introduced last April 28, 2018 as the First Generation members, and thanked their fans who’ve always been by their side since the start of their idol journey. “Simula noon hanggang ngayon nandiyan kayong lahat, nakakatuwa na lumaki ng ganito ‘yung pamilya natin. Alam ko lahat kayo pressured sa General Election, thank you kasi alam ko na binibigay niyo ‘yung best niyo para sa amin.”

“Gusto ko sabihin sa inyo na you did a great job, nakita ng lahat ‘yung paghihirap and pagiging positive nating lahat. Gusto kong malaman niyo na you are enough. Kahit anong mangyari sa atin bukas, ranking is just a number pero ‘yung pagmamahal natin sa isa’t isa and ng MNLoves hindi masusukat ng kahit anong numero,” Sheki said crying while sending her heartfelt message to her co-MNL48 members.

“We guarantee you all na habang buhay namin dadalhin ‘yung pagsasama natin,” Sela added.

Moreover, a 29-year old fan of Alice, Lean said that he’s expecting that this last chance to handshake the girls will be filled with happiness and sadness at the same time that there’s a possibility that this might be their last chance to see the complete First Generation members together.

“Kailangan sa pagkakataong ito, ay ma-meet namin sila in person at mabigyan pa namin sila ng more appreciation and motivation habang hindi pa dumarating ang General Election.”

“For sure iiyak ako, natatakot ako na last na nila ito, dalawa silang Oshi ko na nanganganib. ’Yung handshake na ibibigay ko sa kanila kailangan sulit na sulit kasi baka ito na ‘yung last chance naming magusap as MNL48 members sila,” Jian Fadul, a 22-year old fan added who supports Alyssa and Quincy that both didn’t make it to the Top 48 in the released preliminary results for the General Election.

To wrap up the successful event, the 77 Second Generation candidates had a countdown on stage to officially close the voting for the General Election, and invited the fans to join them as MNL48 announced the 48 Second Year members tomorrow, April 27 at ABS-CBN Vertis Tent.

“Sana suportahan niyong muli ang MNL48 lalo na sa General Election bukas. Sana lahat po kami suportahan niyo, First Generation, Kenkyuusei and Second Generation kasi po lahat kami pantay pantay,” Sheki concluded.

In addition, on April 19, 2019, “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” single had its digital release on Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music and iTunes, where a day after its release, the album immediately climbed up to No. 1 Spot on iTunes Top Albums.

“Sana patuloy niyo po kami supportahan sa aming Third Single, patuloy lang po ang pag stream sa aming music video, at pag boto sa MYX daily charts,” Rans said.

by MNL48 Philippines

MNL48 April celebrants treat their fans to a day filled with fun games and cheerful performances in their Seitansai event on April 14, 2019 at Movie Stars Cafe.

As Belle will be turning a year older on April 17, Madie on April 16, and Sela on April 28, the girls performed their newest single “Bingo!,” “Igai Ni Mango”, and “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” together with the Senbatsu. The birthday celebrants also prepared special games such as “Tama Go Cheeks” and “Ms.MNL” for their fans.

But the most special part of the event is the message from Sela, Belle, and Madie’s family which made the teen idols emotional.

Madie’s parents, Zaldy Epilogo and Marinor Epilogo sent their heartfelt message to their daughter. “Hi anak, happy birthday, wish ko lang na lagi kang in good health, in good faith, and laging si Lord ang inuuna at ang wish ko pa is maging blessing ka sa lahat ng tao na nakapaligid sayo. Alam mo naman na simula pa ng day one na nag-decide kang pumasok diyan sa MNL48 fully supported ka namin ng mommy mo until now na andiyan ka na. Ingatan mo lang lagi sarili mo. Happy birthday and more power, more blessings.”

Riza Bismanos, Belle’s aunt, narrated how her niece was confident since she was a kid. “When belle was just a little girl I already saw star qualities in her, alam mo ‘yung mafi-feel mo na parang a star is born ganon siya. Very confident on stage kahit nung maliit pa siya sumasali ‘yan sa mga beauty contest. She can really light up the room with her presence during sa mga party, ganon siya. Isa siya sa nagpapasaya sa mga party namin at home, so siguro yon isa sa mga namimiss namin now that she’s really very busy with MNL48,” she said.

“From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of our family I would like to wish you a very happy birthday and that God will continue to bless you with all the things that make you happiest. Don’t forget that we will always support you and that we will always be your number one fan, and always keep your feet on the ground. Always be grateful to God for everything that he has blessed you with. We love you, happy birthday,” her aunt greeted.

“Kung meron talagang idol para sa mga kabataan masasabi ko talagang ‘tong mga anak ko lalo na yan si ineng (Sela), parang sinaunang tao ang utak niyan,” shared Mena Guia, Sela’s mother.

Lucky fans also had a chance to wish their Oshi a happy birthday, “advance happy birthday! Laban lang, support ka lagi namin, galingan mo lang,” greeted Beejay Terno to his idol Madie who will be turning 16 this year.

“I’m wishing for your success sa career mo, pagpatuloy mo ginagawa mo and please stay beautiful,” said Leonel Sanchez to Belle as she turns 18 this year.

“Happy birthday, Sela! Wish ko sayo matupad lahat ng pangarap mo at sana lagi kang masaya. Alam kong proud na proud sayo ang family mo. And lagi kang mag-smile ‘wag mo masyadong baguhin sarili mo, enjoy lang at lagi kaming andito para sayo,” Ralph Sarmiento wished to his oshi Sela.

The girls also expressed their happiness towards their fans for continuously attending events and supporting them in their idol journey.

“Thank you sa management dahil sa kanila nabigyan kami ng opportunity para i-share kung ano man meron kami. Nagiging inspirasyon na po kami sa inyong lahat, at sa lahat po ng pumunta po dito ngayon thank you po sa pagbigay ng time dito sa birthday namin. Dito sa MNL48 na feel ko ‘yung growth and appreciation ng tao. Sobra-sobrang na-aappreciate namin ‘yon at mahal na mahal namin kayo (fans). Sobrang happy ako na nakasama ko kayo,” Belle exclaimed.

MNL48 brings “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” fever at Santa Isabel College

04/12/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

MNL48 visits Santa Isabel College (SIC) as a guest performer at “The Search for the Ambassadors of Goodwill” event on April 11, 2019.

img2.jpg

Students warmly welcomed Alyssa, Nice, Gabb, Grace, Shaina, Brei, Jan, Jewel, Ella, and the group’s over-all Team Captain Alice as they performed their third single tracks “Bingo!” and “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel”.

img3.jpg

Moreover, the group introduced MNL48 to the SIC students and invited them to join them in their upcoming Handshake Event that will happen on April 26, 2019 at ABS-CBN Vertis Tent.

img4.jpg

One of the hosts of the event shared how he’s grateful that MNL48 attended their event “Iba ‘yung dalang energy ng MNL48, ilang members pa lang silang pumunta rito pero ‘yung saya na naibigay nila sa students grabe.”

img5.jpg

Brei expressed her feelings as she was able to visit her alma mater, “sobrang saya po, pero iba na ‘yung feeling na nandito ako ngayon kasi po nung last time na tumuntong ako dito puro mga kaklase ko po ‘yung kasama ko pero ngayon po nandito ako to represent MNL48.”

img6.jpg

Meanwhile, Alice shared the reason why they deserve to become part of the MNL48 Second Generation members, “As their captain, sa tingin ko karapat-dapat pa rin akong iboto ng mga tao bilang isang gabay sa grupo. Dapat niyo ring iboto ang First Generation members kasi ang dami pang mga talented na members na hindi pa nabibigyan ng opportunity na makasama sa Senbatsu.”

img7.jpg

“Ang dami na rin naming nasakripisyo tulad ng oras namin sa family at sa studies namin, kaya sana hindi mawala itong pangarap namin at sana mabigyan pa kami ng chance na patunayan ‘yung mga sarili namin as Second Generation members,” she added.

MNL48 emotional with the success of first major concert

04/08/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

Philippines’ idol group MNL48 is beyond grateful for the overwhelming support of their fans for their “Living the Dream: The Concert” held on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the New Frontier Theater.

The international sister group of Japan’s AKB48 wowed their fans as they mark another milestone in their career with the success of their first major concert directed by Direk GB Sampedro.

This is the first time the idol group had a concert since their debut in 2018, and they were able to attain with their mission to bring enjoyment and made their fans proud as they showcased their growth as an artist and as a group after a year of trainings.

“Tonight marks another chapter of our life pero kahit ilang beses kami makapag-perform internationally or kung saan man, there’s no place like home because you’re our home sobrang tagos na tagos sa puso ‘yung pagmamahal niyo sa amin,” MNL48 Center Girl Sheki said addressing her message to MNLoves.

“Sobrang honorable po na we’re finally showing you with what we have worked for from the start of MNL48,” Faith added.


The event started off with energetic performances from three Japanese idol groups, 7 Bridge, Fairytales, and Sokubaku Kanojo as opening acts.

The main show gave a non-stop excitement and heart-stopping live all-out performances of the group’s hit singles “Aitakatta – Gustong Makita”, “Umiindak Na Saya” (Team L), “First Rabbit” (Team MII), “Palusot Ko’y Maybe” (Team NIV), ”Talulot Ng Sakura”, “Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie”, and their Gospel Song “Amazing Grace”, and a new set of AKB48 Tagalized songs namely “Tara Na Party”, “Labrador Retriever” (Team MII), “1234 Yoroshiku” (Team NIV), “Heavy Rotation” (Senbatsu), “Aisatsukara Hajimeyou”, “Kokoro no Placard”, and “Manila48”.

The Pinoy idol group also performed their 3rd single tracks “Igai Ni Mango” (Team L), “Bingo!” (Senbatsu), and “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” (Senbatsu) during the concert.

Considering that this was the first time that MNL48 performed in a grander stage with bigger crowd, Team Captain Alice believes that this is a dream come true for all the members. “Hinintay namin and hiniling namin ito sa buong universe, itong moment na to ang pinakahihintay namin. MNL48 is worth fighting for kasi meron pong naniniwala sa amin, kayo po ‘yung nagpapalakas sa amin para ipagpatuloy ‘yung pangarap namin.”

Moreover, Sela sends her heartfelt appreciation to their fans that have been supporting them in their idol journey and to all the people behind the success of the group. “Maraming salamat po sa wisdom, patience, sa lahat lahat we’re very grateful to all the people who believed in us and continually believes in us. Dati nagdo-doubt kami kung may manunuod sa amin kasi nagsimula kami sa wala, tapos finally nandito na kami sa harap niyo, grabe po ‘yung blessings ni Lord.”

Meanwhile, a special treat was given to fans who bought the SVIP tickets, receiving a handwritten message card from one of the members, MNL48 merchandise plus a limited edition hand bag and an exclusive hi-touch moment with the members on the stage after the concert.

As voting for the Second Generation General Election started last April 1 and will end on April 26, 2019 at 9PM, the concert also gave way to introduce the 29 new candidates for the General Election to be held on April 27, 2019 at ABS-CBN Vertis Tent. The new candidates together with the 48 First Generation members will vie for a spot in the 2nd Generation Top 48, following the tradition of their sister group, AKB48 of having annual election of members to determine new ranking.

MNL48 releases third single “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” music video

04/06/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

MNL48 premieres their 6th music video and third single "365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel" on the group’s official YouTube channel today, April 5, 2019.


As revealed during MNL48 Valentine’s Mini Live concert last February 17, MNL48 Dian, Dana and Ruth joined Sayaka, Kay, Lei, Faith, Mari, Jem, Belle, Coleen, Abby, Sela, Rans, Brei and Sheki, who remains as the Center Girl, in the new line up of Senabtsu members for the group’s newest single.

As per the music video director, Carlo Manatad shared how the management and his team came up with the idea of putting a narrative and film elements on the music video. “Hallohallo Entertainment and my team also listened to the suggestions and comments of the fans. For example the “Palusot Ko’y Maybe” music video, they liked it but they were trying to find a story form within the music video. So with this one we tried as much as possible to incorporate everything, and also with the styling of the girls, we want them to look very classy as much as possible na you’ll see them grow from being an aspirant tapos ngayon mas mature and mas confident on what they do.”

He also narrated how the concept was formed, “looking back, one year na rin kasi ‘yung MNL48 kaya I said to myself what more if they actually can do the narrative, kaya before constructing the narrative part of the music video tinanong ko mismo ‘yung members kung anong ginagawa nila not necessarily after a year pero ano ‘yung ginagawa nila at exactly March 2, 2024 at 7pm. So they gave me different answers, kaya makikita na aside from the performance of the whole video, ‘yung mga inserts of the narrative.”

“Ang concept ng music video is basically written by the girls, and we see their journey on how they started until the point na ito na sila ngayon,” he added.

Before the debut of the latest music video, the Philippines’ idol group released “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” mv teaser last March 29 on their official YouTube channel and social media pages which garnered positive and overwhelming response from their supporters.

Meanwhile, fans can already pre-order the 365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel album on Hallohallo Mall website (hallohallomall.com) before its official release for only P250.00, which comes with one (1) free voting ticket for the MNL48 Second Generation General Election and one (1) free ticket for the next handshake event.

Aside from the “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” single, the CD comes with two new Tagalized AKB48 hits - “Bingo!” and “Igaini Mano” plus instrumental versions of the three songs that fans will also enjoy.

Moreover, MNL48’s “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” music video hashtag #365ArawMNL48 quickly reached the first spot on the Philippine Twitter Trends upon its release.
