    Yeah I'm the same, the screaming was brave but i really don't see anything that would get this banned (other than some blood airbrushing). I think I would have liked this more if they were fighting properly rather than like robots.

    • Man... I love it. It's creepy as hell, Acchan's scream had a big effect on me xD
      But it's so fierce ;___; the end when Yuko kicks in the ball thing, and how it ends (Atsumina fans haha), this is awesome ;___;
      And pretty accurate to the lyrics too xD

    Why was this PV banned if Majisuka was allowed to go on air? [wonder]

    Best news of the days. Thanks a lot.
    I don't see anything too violent for this to be banned though. Well the scream is kinda..if you watch it at night...but other than that [wonder]

    Oooh that's so beautiful! I wonder if Miichan is the bad guy, since one of the triangles says "Michan" (not sure if it says Miichan :^^;: ). I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

    I always thought Miichan was the bad guy too :D

    This brings back good memories of before this single came out like 6 months ago XD and there were rumors of some ultra-violent PV, I totally remember reading the posts on here hahaha

    that was a good time for AKB48, until it got "banned" :/

    This will always be one of my fav PVs

    I was wondering if Sasshi was the bad guy, since the little ball that kills Mariko and that Yuko kicks at the end says RINO P :D

    It wasn't banned, King Records decided not to include it on the DVD because it was considered too violent for an all-ages release. Majisuka is allowed because it is shown late at night when kids won't see it. You have to remember that AKB48 has fans of all ages so they'd get into a lot of trouble if parents found out this was being shown to their younger fans...

    Nope, it's the same video. There's no increase in quality if you pick 720p. Which isn't surprising since the original version would never have been released in HD since it was for phones.

    I think they're all competing against each other, which is why the weapons are named after the girls? It's only when acchan gets hurt for real by Takamina they realise it has gone too far and team up to break free of the game. IMO. [hehe]

    What it all means is up to you and your interpretation of the PV and the lyrics of course. The way I see it, it's about how modern society is all constrained and people are being isolated from each other and not having courage to face the world anymore, especially Japanese society. Everybody lives in their own little world and can't face reality and each other anymore (which explains the creation of elaborate video games, anime, the "culture of cute", idols etc... all escapes from reality. How ironic for AKB to be commenting on the phenomenon that created it [hehe] )

    Really? It looks a lot better to me. I can actually full screen it and read the words clearly.

    Nope, it's the same. I just compared screenshots and they're identical. Plus the "new" version has the same "play" icon in the top right, so it's just a re-upload of the original video... [hehe]

    There are phones that can do 720p without problem and ouput via HDMI, but yes I do think this was upscaled.

    Without the screaming this would have been a good PV.

    for me the screaming is to 'snap' people from the unrealistic setting of the PV and make them like, 'oh noes' or sth like that.
