Nagisa Shibuya has been a member for AKB48's best-selling album called Tsugi no Ashiato

Nagisa Shibuya is a Japanese pop music singer and a member of the group NMB48. She is part of their Team B2 and she also has a position with AKB48’s Team 4. Nagisa was originally a member of NMB48’s training group and she was promoted to NMB48 during the AKB48 Grand Shuffle in February 2014. Nagisa Shibuya is the first member to be placed in two groups following a promotion. I would say that Nagisa is the next singer to be recognized as being very cute. In a country obsessed by cuteness, Nagisa should do very well in terms of being able to win over lots of fans. Nagisa Shibuya has been a member of AKB48 for the B-side singles of Koi suru Fortune Cookie, Heart Ereki, Mae Shika Mukanee, Kibouteki Refrain, and Green Flash. Koi suru Fortune Cookie has an excellent B-side single called Aozora Café. Aozora Café is on the album called Tsugi no Ashiato.

The Career of Nagisa Shibuya (2012-Present)


She really got her first taste of success being named as a “center” for a song. On November 16, 2013, it was reported that the 16 girls that finished in the top spot during that year’s Senbatsu Election would be allowed to take part in NMB48’s song called Kimi to Deatte Boku wa Kawatta. And for that song, Nagisa Shibuya was chosen as the center. This was a very successful moment for Nagisa as it allowed her to get to one of the top places in Japan’s entertainment industry. Nagisa was actually a member of the training girls section of the gravure idol industry in December 2012 before she was promoted to NMB48 and AKB48. Nagisa was not ranked in the 2013 or the 2014 Senbatsu Elections. However, in 2015, Nagisa finished at #58. On the day of the AKB48 Grand Shuffle (February 24, 2014), Shibuya was seen doing lingerie modeling! Nagisa also used to have a role in AKB48 as well and there is a term for this simply known as "concurrent membership." However, it would be on May 18, 2018 that her status of concurrent member in AKB48 would be terminated. Even if that felt like a sort of setback for her it was not. This is because she would be named as captain of Team M not too long after that termination. Nagisa Shibuya would end up being promoted to captaincy of Team M following a New Year's event for NMB48. She would start in that role officially as of March 1, 2019.
