AKB48 Team SH, an international sister group of Japan's phenomenal idol group AKB48, gathered 37 of its members for the 2nd Genki Carnival on Nov 20-21 in Shanghai.

The two-day event featured a three-hour concert celebrating the third founding anniversary of AKB48 Team SH. Members took turns to present nearly 180 cosplay outfits and performed five new songs before the group announced its plan to release a new album titled Ogoe Diamond. The Shanghai-based group had also for the first time included in its annual carnival a rock-paper-scissors competition in which members entertained their fans with catchy words and costume changes as they took turns to compete.

Since its establishment in 2005, AKB48 has been characterized as a social phenomenon and is ranked the fifth best-selling girl group worldwide.

AKB48 Team SH, which was established in December 2018, also announced the list of 16 members who would be featured in Ogoe Diamond at the end of the carnival.
