AKB48 “High Tension” C/W MVs Released

AKB48 High Tension Regular B

AKB48 have released the MVs for the c/w tracks from their upcoming single titled High Tension.

Out November 16th, the single will be released in 5 Regular and 5 Limited editions.

The MVs for High Tension and Happy End have been released already.

With the release date set for next week it seems only fitting that we get the remaining MVs for the tracks featured in this notable single.

Osaekirenai Shoudou

Kicking off with the c/w for all of the editions, Osaekirenai Shoudou features a soft, upbeat ballad showcasing everyone’s favorite AKB48 member: drone-san. In what might be a thinly veiled CM for a drone, we get a fairly nice song to accompany as they build them.

For the most part, the song itself is catchy and it does have its moments although it is a tad on the laid back side for me.

Better

The c/w for the Type B editions is the solo song for Shimazaki Haruka which showcases her being hugged (awkwardly at times) by several members as they all sing together. It’s a fairly cute release that also showcases a dreamy set where all the members sing.

Fans of Paruru are sure to love this MV in particular since it has some fairly nice touches here and there that help make it complete.

Hoshizora wo Kimi ni

Type C’s c/w Hoshizora wo Kimi ni doesn’t fall short with a rather upbeat instrumental that plays as the members make several decorations in a school setting. Hoshizora wo Kimi ni is by far my favorite song of the bunch since it has a colorful MV and a catchy, fast-paced sound that is sure to please.

Shishunki no Adrenaline

The c/w for Type D is interesting mainly because it also has a rather fast-paced instrumental and the addition of the idol-favorite seifuku. In comparison to the other releases, the members aren’t in a school, but they cook and dance energetically to the rock-styled instrumental in a white room covered in petals.

Being a fan of fast-paced songs I have to say that this is also among my favorites, although the vocals could have used a slightly more energetic touch.

Seishun Tired

Finally, we get the MV for the c/w of the Type E editions that features a bear (wolf-thing?) DJ that is soon replaced by a variety of members as they sing to the disco styled song. Instead of having several shots, we instead get a canvas of strange but highly interesting videos which the camera slowly pans over to.

It might be slightly weird at first, but I have to give credit to them for trying something new that’s not the typical “Dance + solo” shot formula that has become too common in the idol world.

This single might be the last for Paruru, but it’s certainly a strong release so I encourage everyone to get a copy to help support her!
