The desperate efforts of NMB48′s 14-year-old Natsuko Akashi to escape her creepy fans have been causing a stir online.
Opinions are divided as to whether it is the poor girl or her fans who deserve more sympathy.
She was evidently less than happy about having to pose with her fans.
On the other hand, NMB48 does count consummate professionals like Aika Nishimura amongst its numbers.
Images 1 to 5 show Natsuko Akashi, images 6 to 16 shows Aika Nishimura, while the rest of the gallery shows other AKB48 members.
