    Of course! I knew I was missing something when I thought it was a way to scrounge more money out of them. It was silly of me to think a shop might be a commercial venture and not just a way of expressing their sincere gratitude by selling things to their fans.

    more like wanting the fans to say thank you by shelling out money for things they don`t need.

    I put my hand up to manage the AKB48 shop! Its popularity would be astounding compared to these aging pop queens!
