Added AKB48 since HKT48 (http://vgmdb.net/artist/14453) and NO NAME (http://vgmdb.net/artist/14327) are subgroups.

I think because being an elder sister of a J-pop group doesn't really count as a valid reason for us to make an entry for them, especially since we even lack ways to associate artist with artists. However, as both HKT48 and AKB48 seem to have a credit in our database, that'd be the reason (and I actually like to see some mainstream artists appear in our website, since their involvement in game or anime can be a noteworthy trivia).

I was poking around some albums, and it turns out there is a credit to AKB48 after all, in Wreck-it Ralph Original Soundtrack (http://vgmdb.net/album/38263)

Thank you, HKT48/AKB48 linked up for at least those two albums (38724 and 38263) where the units are credited as such. Don't know what to do for credits "Team Dragon/French Kiss from AKB48".
The first part easily resembles a prefix. Maybe we need new prefix field (besides existing suffix) for artist linking.
Or we just simply treat whole 'Team Dragon from AKB48' as a variation?

I also referred to that album (otherwise, I would have rejected this entry);
