2005 - 2006: Theater Debut and Indies Era
In July 2005, renown producer Yasushi Akimoto held an audition for a new theater based idol girl group. Of the 7,924 girls that applied, 45 passed the first round of auditions, detailed screening of the application documents. Finally, only 24 girls were chosen to be in the group. In November, the selected girls went through an extensive one month training program.

A second audition was soon announced, and was held in cooperation with Japanese telecom company NTT DoCoMo. It was the first audition ever where the applicants had to send in their audition video with their mobile phones.
In January 2006, three months before Team K was formed, Akimoto let Shinoda Mariko join the group as part of Team A. Failing the first generation audition, she didn't give up her dreams and worked as a waitress in a cafe in the same building and on the same floor as the the AKB48 theater. Through customer's feedback and Akimoto's challenge, she was able to join the group and is only person to be referred as generation 1.5.
19 of the 11,892 applicants who participated in the second audition were chosen to join AKB48, but in the end only 17 girls joined the group to become Team K in April 2006. They were:
Akimoto Sayaka, Umeda Ayaka, Oshima Yuko, Ohori Megumi, Oku Manami, Ono Erena, Kasai Tomomi, Kobayashi Kana, Sato Natsuki, Noro Kayo, Hayano Kaoru, Masuda Yuka, Matsubara Natsumi, Miyazawa Sae, Imai Yu, Uemura Ayako, and Takada Ayana.

Baragumi and Yurigumi
On November 4th, 2006, it was announced that the members of Akihabara48 would be rearranged into two groups: Baragumi ('rose group') and Yurigumi ('lily group'). No more official announcements have been made on this matter since then, and it is widely believed that this idea has been scrapped.
However when the single Kaze wa Fuiteiru was released, the idea of Baragumi and Yurigumi was resurrected as part of the Under Girls B-side groups. It was used once again in the single Kibouteki Refrain, but with an additional third unit, Cattleyagumi ('cattleya group').
The two groups are as follows (☆ denotes a girl who has changed teams or graduated since the announcement was made):
- Team A: Hirajima Natsumi☆, Kojima Haruna, Komatani Hitomi☆, Masuyama Kayano☆, Minegishi Minami, Oshima Mai☆, Takahashi Minami, Urano Kazumi☆, Watanabe Shiho☆.
- Team K: Akimoto Sayaka☆, Imai Yu☆, Kasai Tomomi☆, Kobayashi Kana, Matsubara Natsumi☆, Noro Kayo☆, Ohori Megumi☆, Ono Erena☆.
- Team A: Hoshino Michiru☆, Itano Tomomi☆, Kawasaki Nozomi☆, Maeda Atsuko☆, Nakanishi Rina☆, Narita Risa☆, Ohe Tomomi☆, Sato Yukari☆, Shinoda Mariko☆, Tojima Hana☆.
- Team K: Hayano Kaoru☆, Masuda Yuka☆, Miyazawa Sae☆, Oku Manami☆, Oshima Yuko☆, Sato Natsuki☆, Takada Ayana☆, Umeda Ayaka☆.
