Edit: GIVE ME FIVE - Short PV is out. The long PV is like insane 30+ minute drama.


Ah, the wonders of using a studio to change the sound to something you can listen to. haha
It's still very AKB-formulaic though, I was hoping for something more experimental and less choir-y. Through the whole song it just sounds like one melody all the time, except for the mandatory instrumental 15 seconds near the end.
I was hoping for chorous, bridges, longer instrumental etc.

Takamina & Yuko at the guitars and Yuki at the drums look pretty cool I have to say.

If what the reports say is true, I think this was actually a good thing for Watarirouka. They're definitely my favorite sub-group by far, but I never cared too much for Nacchan or Wasamin (not that they were bad, but they never stood out,) but apparently both of them were dropped from the group and they took the "7" off the name, so its back to 5 members, with the lineup as Mayu, Love-tan, Harugon, Komorin, and Kikuchi <3 Wasamin is going solo anyway, so its not like you won't be seeing her around. But those 5 that the group consists of now are some of my overall favorites from all of AKB. Love it.


I hope that's true. WataHashi is by far my favorite sub-group. Outside of H!P it's probably my favorite group.Though I never did understand why they added the two girls. The group seemed fine the way it was.

^ I loved WH7. :wub: I miss Nacchan already. ;__; Her voice suited most of the songs and brought the squeak down a level.

I swear Akimoto has a hand in everything. Next thing you know he'll take a side job as prime minster just cause he can. (And he'd probably be good at it too, the over achiever.)


Anyway, that little outburst was prompted by a company making some AKB48 dolls. (That aren't for sale.) But given enough time, they might be.

He'd make a different cabinet with politicians from Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka.

Is she a hot milf ?
If no, then shame on her.
If yes, what a lucky guy.

The worst part about that picture is that I totally see the resemblance.

Minami in 20 years? It's true you can see the resemblance. I love how some websites dance around it and don't come right out and say "had sex". Nice to know America isn't the only screwed up country. Thanks Japan! Posted Image

So PVs C/W's for the new AKB48 single are out.


Full GIVE ME FIVE - Baby Blossom
Feat: Kojima Haruna, Sashihara Rino, Shinoda Mariko, Takajo Aki, Takahashi Minami, Maeda Atsuko, Itano Tomomi, Oshima Yuko, Minegishi Minami, Miyazawa Sae, Yokoyama Yui, Kasai Tomomi, Kashiwagi Yuki, Kitahara Rie, Watanabe Mayu, Matsui Jurina, Matsui Rena, Yamamoto Sayaka

Haven't watched it, too much drama not enough PV.

I personally think they should have left the front girls out of the c/w songs and left them to the other girls. But that's just me being me. :P

Sweet & Bitter - Selection 6
Feat: Sashihara Rino, Shinoda Mariko, Takahashi Minami, Maeda Atsuko, Itano Tomomi, Oshima Yuko

As no one in this lineup interests me in the slightest I found the PV boring because of this and the song just as much.

New Ship - Special Girls A
Feat: Sato Sumire, Ichikawa Miori, Iriyama Anna, Shimazaki Haruka, Yamauchi Suzuran, Iwata Karen, Kato Rena, Kawaei Rina, Takahashi Juri, Tano Yuka, Kizaki Yuria, Matsui Jurina, Kimoto Kanon, Watanabe Miyuki, Kodama Haruka, Melody

Got to admit, I only watched this to see how Melody faired with the other girls. Stuck out like a soar thumb so it wasn't hard to spot her. The more I watch her the more I think Sumire was better meant for AKB48 and never to be a H!P member.
Oh and are they recreating Heavy Rotation? I skipped the entire storyline part and went straight to the music.

Hitsujikai no Tabi - Special Girls B
Feat: Iwasa Misaki, Ota Aika, Katayama Haruka, Kuramochi Asuka, Kojima Haruna, Takajo Aki, Akimoto Sayaka, Umeda Ayaka, Kikuchi Ayaka, Fujie Reina, Matsui Sakiko, Minegishi Minami, Miyazawa Sae, Yokoyama Yui, Kasai Tomomi, Kashiwagi Yuki, Kitahara Rie, Sato Amina, Masuda Yuka, Watanabe Mayu, Shimada Haruka, Nagao Mariya, Matsui Rena, Takayanagi Akane

With two girls whom I know in this group, I was mostly interested in this song. Of course it was slow and I hate slow from anyone associated with the 48s. (Same could be said for H!P. In general I just dislike slow songs from Japanese artists.) PV on the other hand, wtf? Not sure what was going on, but hello Pagan!


On an aside note, I want to burn that hat on Takahashi Minami's head SO bad! The one she's wearing in promo for Give Me Five. Or do this!

This would be so much better!

Hitsujikai is AMAZING. I love the Vestal Virgin's theme and the fact that Yuki's tear wakes Mayu up. :wub:

I see it as they are really playing up the idol mold of being untouchable virginal idols, or some religious mumbo jumbo I can't quite compute this early in the morning.

I almost didn't recognize Mayu without her signature pigtails.

Sigh.

I never thought I'd see the day where I'd enjoy an AKB48 song, but I'm really in love with 'GIVE ME FIVE!'. The song itself and the overall concept are impossible to resist. I also don't know if any of the girls featured play any instruments, but if they don't I love that they actually KNOW how to fake playing an instrument. None of that Mai Hagiwara crap.

I'm in a ska band so the fake horn section girls resonate with me :weeeh:

They actually know how to play the song and have played the song 100% live a few times. Look earlier in this thread, there's a video. They started playing the instruments late last year and now play it live, so its not just faking!

Because you didn't LOOK in the right place.
