The costume design and color palate are a bit of a departure for AKB48 – muted green and a medieval nymph or fairy look with the backdrop of a misty forest. Bell sleeves, ethnic prints, and long feather earrings combine to create a look with surprising artistic and mature appeal.
The new single includes fifteen members from AKB48, two from SKE48, and one from NMB48. For the b-side song the traditional Undergirls unit performs “Kimi na Senaka”. Additionally, in a bit of a new move the AKB48 producers are pushing the often referenced-little used under-under units of Team A and Team K – now referring to them as Undergirls Bara and Undergirls Yuri. Each of these Undergirls units will have a b-side song performed depending on the edition of the single purchased. Can’t just buy one edition….
For those who must, fortunately there will be only two different versions released, Type-A and Type-B, both coming with a DVD with the music videos, as well as a voting ticket for the upcoming “AKB48 Request Hour Set List Best 100 2012” event in January of 2012.
