A first look at Emika Kamieda of NMB48


Who is Emika Kamieda?

Emika Kamieda is a Japanese pop music singer and she is also the captain of the musical group NMB48. She is a captain of Team B2. Second in command of this team was Ayaka Umeda who used to be a member of AKB48 before she transferred to this group. As of 2016, the sub-captain for Team B2 is Anna Ijiri. Emika made her debut with NMB48 in February 2012 as a member of their 3rd generation. Emika was born on July 13, 1994 in Osaka, Japan. She joins Mayu Watanabe as another notable member of either AKB48 or its “sister” musical groups to be born in that year. Emika is in the same team of NMB48 as the cute Nagisa Shibuya.

Emika Kamieda is also a bikini model

Typical of many of these Japanese idols, Emika has also appeared in magazines such as Weekly Playboy Magazine and Big Comic Spirits. One of the most famous Japanese idols in this industry to have made an appearance in this magazine is Aki Takajo who did so in August 2011. That is one of the best photo shoots ever and it shows Aki dressed as a lifeguard, relaxing in the hotel or swimming in the pool! The appearance in Big Comic Spirits Magazine was in November 2013 with NMB48 member Sayaka Yamamoto.

Emika Kamieda: her career in brief

Emika goes by the nickname of Emichi. In her career, she has appeared in eight of NMB48’s singles and their B-sides tracks. Some of them are Nagiichi, Virginity, Kitagawa Kenji, Bokura no Eureka, Kamonegikkusu, and the latest single Don’t Look Back! Emika Kamieda has not been ranked during any of the group’s last three Senbatsu Elections. These elections are held to determine which member will be the center for the singles and which members can participate in the singles. These elections are held each year and the results are determined by the vote of the fans. Emika Kamieda is one of NMB48’s newest members and she may become more popular in the future. Especially with the sudden announcement of Rina Kawaei’s graduation plans, Emika has the chance to solidify her status in NMB48. Note: it is now 2016 and Kawaei is now working as an actress.
