Behind FilWota48

FilWota48, a shortened term for Filipino Wotas 48, is an online community of Filipinos from around the world who are fans of the 48 and/or 46 groups. These include, but are not limited to, AKB48, SKE48, SDN48, NMB48, HKT48, JKT48, NGT48, Nogizaka46, Keyakizaka46, OJS48, etc).

Our goal is to gather the various communities of Filipino fans of the 48 universe, and as one entity, establish an online presence, be represented, spread the fandom, and have Filipino fans of the 48 universe continue to be recognized in Japan and all over the world.

6 Years In.. And Still Going Strong

The community was established back in 2009. Through-out the years, the community has witnessed the transformation of our beloved AKB48 and its sister groups from their humble theater beginnings to the colossal group that they are today. And along with these events, the community has evolved alongside our fandom in order to serve our members better.

Up until 2014, the main activity of the community was the FilWota48 forum where members would engage in 48 group related discussions using our local language. The forum served as an online place where people would openly discuss topics in the 48 universe, organize meet-ups for fun and trading, and get involved in community related projects.

Today, the main activity of the community involves the FilWota48 Facebook page. With the current technological trend in our country, we feel that this is the most effective method to reach out to both old and new fans, to introduce more people to AKB48, and to guide fans on how to enjoy the fandom to the fullest.
