AKB48 “Shoot Sign” C/W MVs Released

AKB48 Shoot Sign Cover Limited B

AKB48 U-19, HKT48, NGT48, and NMB48 have released the MVs for their tracks from AKB48’s upcoming single titled Shoot Sign.

Out March 15th, the single will be released in 10 editions.

The MVs for AKB48’s Shoot Sign and Kidukare Nai You ni, Sakamachi AKB’s Dare no Koto o Ichiban Aishiteru?, and SKE48’s Vacancy have all been released already.

AKB48 U-19 – Accident Chu (Type D and E)

With an old fashioned Japanese style, the members of AKB48 U-19 kick off their journey through the history of Japanese fashion. It’s an interesting setting and one that makes for the perfect background while the members sing in this funky, upbeat release.

HKT48 – Tomaranai Kanransha (Type C exclusive)

The clock strikes midnight as members of HKT48 sing in perfect unison as they dance alongside their reflections around a giant clock. The standout of the release is the fact that the choreography seems to incorporate so many moves inspired by clock hands.

While a bit weird, the song is by far one of my favorite from this single. The interesting choice of vocals goes surprisingly well with the instrumental giving us a song that’s not exactly a ballad but not exactly upbeat. The vocals don’t follow a set rhythm but it still manages to grab your attention well, making it a solid choice for this single.

NGT48 – Midori to Mori no Undokouen (Type D exclusive)

NGT48 prepare for a trip of a lifetime as all of the members sing as they walk together to a bus. What awaits them is a treat for fans of winter, since we get a dance shot taking place in a giant snowy hill where apparently skirts are enough to keep them warm.

This is one of the most fun MVs since we get to see scenes of them having fun in the snow as well as singing on top of a fixture in a park. As they have fun, the song plays and while it might be a ballad it fits the setting well, with a few instruments that seem to bring to mind winter.

NMB48 – Mayonaka no Tsuyogari (Type B exclusive)

As the MV kicks off we get a guitar shredding that gets everyone hyped up, only to slowly fall into a calm ballad style. It’s an interesting mix of two sounds since the guitar seems a bit out of place with the ballad vocals, but it does seem like a decent c/w to have on the single for fans who like to live on the edge.

Overall, it’s a true treat for fans of AKB48 groups since there’s a bit of everything to enjoy. From fun and upbeat songs to the traditional ballads we have come to love, it seems like AKB48 are giving their best to celebrate Haruna’s last single.

There’s not much else to say, so if you are as hyped as I am about this release, make sure to get your copy of the single!
