AKS Co., Ltd. (株式会社AKS, Kabushiki-gaisha AKS) is a Japanese talent agency, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. The company is involved in various entertainment-related activities, including music, film and merchandise production.
AKS is the company managing the Japanese idol groups AKB48, SKE48, and HKT48.
AKB48 employs a so-called "transfer system". All the participants who pass the auditions are contracted by AKS for a while. Having started her career as a member, an artist within a predetermined time period should receive a contract offer from another artist management company.
Groups themselves belong to AKS and are managed by the company.
