August 5, AKB48's Team 8 made its theater debut in the AKB48 theater. 16 out of the 47 members were selected to perform the Shonichi show, a remake of AKB48's very first stage [Party ga Hajimaru yo]. The setlist can be found below.
Team 8 was first revealed to the public in April. Since then they have held several local events in various parts of Japan. Following the AKB48 theater debut they also tour the other 48 Group theaters with changing performing members.
Recently Team 8 member Okubora Chinatsu, the Gifu representative, graduated but a replacement has already been selected: Hattori Yuna (13) was revealed as new Gifu member at the end of July.
