SGO48 is a projected overseas AKB48 sister group based in Vietnam's city Ho Chi Minh (formerly known as Saigon).

All these sister groups seem to be for asian countries only right now... I don't see them making one for a western country any time soon... the culture shock might be too much for people

may be they chose SGO48, so that the group will have the first Team O. S, G, N is already an existing team. just a theory.

This is getting to be too much.

I want to be able to get into the 48G again, but it's just become so diluted that nothing has any meaning anymore. Teams are shuffled and bloated constantly so why form an attachment to a team if they are just going to be rearranged in a year? Why like any low-ranking or no-ranking members if you'll barely be able to see them in a music video or get any subtitled content for them? If the entire organization of the group(s) is consumed by the SSK, what is the point anymore? With each addition the members are becoming less valuable and more replaceable-- and look, now the language I'm using to describe the situation sounds like I'm talking about dispensable items or products. Most of what these girls do for fans is a strategy to get ranked. For a foreign fan, there's no payout for me. Why get emotionally invested if management is going to ignore the girl unless they're Senbatsu Material? How is NGT special compared to STU or HKT or anything? Why should I like one girl over another? There are so many to keep track of and it's overwhelming. When there's so many options, everything becomes the same. Adding more foreign sister groups are just taking Aki-P's time and money from the real structural issues he needs to be focusing on to make AKB better.

 

But who cares? More money in his pocket in the end.

^Just focus on one group then? You don't need to worry about what the other groups are doing if you only care for one, no one is asking you to follow every single group lol. 

Even if you only follow AKB, you're still not required to know all the SG members and definitely not the overseas group who do nothing for the japanese franchise other than fill Aki-P's pockets. You can easily follow AKB and the lineup will be relatively stable in terms of senbatsu, and if you only support one or two teams, they've only just started in their new teams so they'll be like that for the next couple years, you don't need to worry about too much changes. AKS have been finally making a mend to AKB so if they continue like this AKB will be fine, not diluted at all.

TPE48 is practically in debt before their official debut and instead of focusing on that and helping fix the problems, Aki-P announces the formation of SGO48. *sigh*

I dont know why people feel so stressed over the new sister groups and "remembering all members" like... you dont have to...
You can literally just remember the AKB senbatsu and thats all you need. Even tho for me, I love discovering new idols among the sister groups because there are some great finds.

And then the overseas sister groups dont affect the Japanese ones AT ALL. I'm not sure if AKS even owns them. They are just a contract between AkiP and a foreign agency for them to use the 48 songs and name.

Some of them might flop, altho so far JKT BNK and SNH have been doing just great.

Just have fun guys, dont overthink and stress over things.

Also there are differences between NGT STU HKT and etc. Each group has its own individuality that you can see once you get to know the members.

Spoiler

 

Anyway, back to the original topic. I actually really like the SGO name. It sounds nice, like an app or something. They can make a cool catchphrase with it or something. "Let's go with SGO! SGO48 Fighting!" or something.

Looking at their website (which is one page only) at the bottom it shows HAN48 (as in Hanoi48). Hmmmmm.

Funny too how this group was announced even before MUM48 has been officially formed.

I guess HAN48 will be the Vietnamese agency that manages 48 group/s that operate there
