Regardless of your opinion of AKB48's music *cough*ITSUCKS*cough*, you have to admit the girls that make up the group are quite cute. Of course, such cuteness has huge marketing power, and the latest product to benefit from this is the Japanese MMORPG Grand Fantasia.

Not only will AKB48 receive in-game character models, but the upcoming soundtrack will also feature one of their songs, "Adventure Like This", composed  especially for the the game. Of course, the big news is the soundtrack's cover, which features four AKB48 members drawn in an anime style similar to the game's promotional art. The full soundtrack cover, in all of it's horror glory, can be viewed after the jump.

Moe power!

Hmm, that art style reminds me of something...

So, what do you guys think of AKB48? Are they just another vapid idol group, or is there true talent somewhere in there? Will their fame last, or will they be discarded without a second thought, like so many pop idols before them?
