The team deputed in January 2009. There are 47 members in total. They have a specific stage/theater called "AKB48 theater" (Japanese:AKB48劇場) in Akihabara, and perform there everyday. The reason for this is because Akimoto wanted to change the idea of idols. Idols usually are presented in an unrealistic way in the media, so Akimoto's idea was to show idols as real people whom fans could interact with.
AKB is a short form for Akihabara. During the first phase of this project, the name "Akihabara 48" was decided. It is popularly thought that the number 48 means the number of members, but instead it refers to the name of the group's President's office; "office48". The office is located in Chiba Prefecture, and in Japanese pronunciation, "Chiba" and "48" sound similar.
AKB48 consists of 3 teams called "Team A", "Team K", and "Team B". All members belong to one of these teams. Each team holds individual performances at their stage/theatre "AKB gekijou". Each team has 16 members.
Due to the large number of members, only a few members are picked by their producer when making media appearances. The members picked are called "senbatsu members". Senbatsu members have "earned" the privilege of representing the group during media appearances, and are usually decided by election.
