I was talking to a friend and he said he didn't like AKB48! I'm shocked, because AKB48 is so popular in Japan! How do I say: "I thought everyone liked AKB48"? Maybe something like...

誰もがAKB48が好きとおもった!

And maybe something extra like "Since they have a café and anime dedicated to them, I thought they would be more popular."

1 Answer 1

I would say:

「AKB48って、みんな(or誰でも)好きだと思ってた!AKBのカフェとかアニメとかもあるし、もっと人気があると思ってたよ。」

It's "I thought they would be..." not "I thought they were..." So should it be もっと人気が"出る"と思った? (う~ん・・・ちょっと変な日本語・・・) –  Choko Apr 11 at 15:03
