Who Are We?

We are PAKSA MNL, which stands for Paghanga at Kwento sa MNL48. We are an upcoming media group that will cater to the needs of the MNL48 fandom to delve into the newspaper like facet. As an upcoming media group, we aspire to further release relevant articles and artwork that will showcase general appreciation and unique stories from the group and the fandom as well. In short, we are a media group founded and created by fans, and are for the fans as well.

What Do We Do?

As a media group, we are primarily catering to the news and journalistic needs of the fandom. We will be primarily covering relevant and verified MNL48-related content such as upcoming mall shows, events, member endeavors and others that will be considered worthy to be known by the fandom as whole. Furthermore, we will be providing insightful opinions on some of the hard-pressed topics relevant to MNL48, and at the same time provide informative yet entertaining feature and focus stories from MNL48 members and fans.


We shouldn’t also forget that we will also be promoting the creative prowess of fellow MNLoves through submission of literary pieces, artwork and other graphical edits. In the end, we envision to create a sea of content that shows the countless talents the MNLoves fandom has to offer in appreciation of MNL48 as a whole.

MNL-wise, he actually started on the other side, critical of the early model, until flipping to the fandom in mid-October 2019.

Kami-Oshi: MNL48 Alice


MNL48 Affiliations: MNL48 MYX Voting Team

Being an anime lover and low-key Japanophile in general made Junejuly curious of MNL48 when she first saw the Aitakatta - Gustong Makita MV in November 2018. She then followed the group and became a fan a month later. Alas, the second SSK stopped her from being an active fan.


Nonetheless, she fully supports the group and hopes that votes and letters will be of help. For the meantime, she'll attend to her patients while pensively waiting for the Philippines to awaken.
