The very popular group AKB48 is part of the Japanese idol pop scene. The band has informed this week that they got attacked at a fan event by a man wielding a saw. Sounds like something straight out of an off beat horror movie. The attack left two of the members of AKB48 injured in addition to one staff member. All three suffered cuts to their hands.
Police arrested the saw man. He is an unemployed 24-year-old.
AKB48 holds the record for largest pop group. Founded in 2005 with 48 members, the group now has close to 150 members. The group has its own theater in Akihabara district in Tokyo.
Watch the popular AKB48 music video Baby! Baby! Baby! below.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
