Mere weeks after one of them tried to saw off their hands, AKB48 are again hard at work shaking the hands of their creepy fans – who are now under such heavy guard that the entire process has been compared unfavourably to a prison visit or the more unstable kind of border crossing…

Scenes of the newly secured event – the first being held at the Tokyo Big Sight – have been causing wonder online:

Online few can believe anyone would put up with an almost TSA level of security theatre to meet their idols, and fewer still that they would buy hundreds of CDs in order to endure the privilege:

“What fun!”

“Even now you still want to shake their hands?”

“Is this a prison visitation?”

“This is just revolting.”

“Reminds me of Auschwitz or something.”

“I thought this was an Israeli checkpoint or something for a moment.”

“Amazing anyone would pay money to be treated like this.”

“Those lucky guards, that guy stood next to Mayuyu all day is one of life’s winners.”

“You know how far gone they are from seeing something like this.”

“Even the little girl is stuck behind a fence?”

“Surely this must be the beginning of the end.”
