What Will This Article About NMB48 Cover?

This article is a tribute to girl group NMB48. It will cover a few specific events in the group’s history and this will not be a complete biography of the group. And as for Japanese idol group NMB48, they were going to do something that they had not done in more than seven years. As of May 2019, there is a current news item about NMB48 so stay tuned until the end of the article!

What Was This Kinki Tour About?

The group did what is known as a Kinki Tour called NMB48 Kinki Juuban Shoubu 2019. NMB48 last toured this Kinki Region 7 years ago. The tour will last from March to April 2019 and since the group will be undergoing a shuffle, or members being moved around, the members will perform with their new teams. This team shuffle was the first special event in the history of NMB48.

There Is Going to Be More Than Just a Simple Tribute to NMB48

The second thing that we are going to look at is that we will analyze the group’s song called Warota People by detailing what the song’s message is and what is the significance of the song.

What is the Message in the Song Warota People?

The beginning of the song tries to point out that we should try as much as we can to avoid arguments or confrontations with people who will pick on our faults and try to spread the word around that we are being negative. The song says that living in this world is hard. The second lyrical verse of Warota People is very interesting because it questions the validity of treating fake news as if they were real news. Is there a criminal investigation or witch hunt? The song is making a reference to now former US President Donald Trump because this is typically what he does, questioning the investigations into his campaign. He frequently took to Twitter to criticize and berate Robert Mueller at every opportunity. Politics aside, the song is also trying to bring across the message that it is up to each of us to shift our awareness and consciousness to looking at opportunities in this world instead of focusing on problems. We will not cause any trouble by being proactive, focusing on solutions and opportunities and we will be happier people. The problems on the other side of the shore are other people’s business and we should just flee these kinds of people at every opportunity.
