    Yeah, this is pretty discouraging for me too but consider that Warota People extras were also all women and if you aren't looking at them closely you probably won't notice.

    I'm not worried, there have been lots of nice videos with extras too :approve: And I don't think the PV impacts the song very much. Some of my favorite songs have trash PVs and vice versa.

    Pretty much.

    Watch it be a Mayu-type song where everyone Cosplays as a Male - lol. Aki-P loves the 70's..... "Do the Danso!!" do-do-do-do-do- Do the Danso....instead of "Do the Hustle!" I'm not kidding- this is a real 70's Classic song
    TRUST ME....If it's Moody or even sounds a lick like Keyakizaki - it'll prove "One Theory" I have - AKI-P is bored & enjoys 'Messing w/AKB' - He could've easily gone BubbleGum or did something Proven (atleast w/ probable success) - We don't know the song but he has NO MORE Excuses!! THIS Is the Team he's got.

    Ohhhh.... So it's gonna be a "Girl Power" Feminism flavored song?? Yeah...that'll will over of the Males- lol. I'm gonna LAUGH if this is the case - Mind you we know nothing. It could be Anything....but Excluding Male extra's? A Danso center? - this smells mighty "progressive" for Japan - lol.
    My Honest feelings...
    Please AKI-P go FULL Feminist - burn your house down...after seeing how the Chinese reacted to "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" - I'm dying to see how Japan reacts to Feminist AKB48 - lol. You build your AKB48 w/ a Kami-7 & bikini calendars & Dating Sim game & candy commercials Ads & Funny comedy skits on "AKBingo"....Pretty sensible for "Idols you can Meet". I want to see you pull another WIN here - Re-create AKB & if it works w/ Okada fine! (I don't blame her).

    Now...51st single- So Long fellas, we got your money. We only want 'Females' in our next Vid & random Extras Females (Girl Power)- where their be knitted "Pink Hats"?? too. Just focus on the women AKI-P...forget those 'creepy males' that buy the singles for the handshake tickets, wait in line ALL Day for 7-10 seconds & a handshake w/ a pretty girl...Yeah, I'm sure the males Wota's won't mind. Girl Power! Finally free of the slimy cheering male wota's for once! - YES, this is 'Tongue & Cheek'.

    But realize if even 1/2 of this 'imagery' plays out or is perceived by the crowd that supports AKB because he likes the "girls" & and is just OK w/ the music this spells DOOM if he actively shifts AKB's focus from EVERYONE to...just a type of fan. For years AKB was supposed to be "Family Friendly" & for everyone (Young & Old - Male & Female)- having a 'Female Centric' single or message even for 1 single might come off as...what's the term..."Problematic".
    Let's all hope I'm wrong.

    What does Mayu-type song got with all people doing danso :glare:
    Pls...watch the discography. Nowhere as far as I can remember Mayu got a non-girly song let alone danso. Hell, if you mention it, all I can remember was Zero Sum Taiyou and it was sung by Akimoto Team K.

    I don’t know if they edited it. I saw women only before, but now it says
    男性・女性とも

    I'm glad that Naachan is going to be the center of the 51st Single. AKB48 is like losing behind the popularity race within the 48G. and if we're going to based the result of last year's SSK. she does deserved the push because she rank the highest among the next-gen members.

    AKS should also stop with the inconsistent push. AKB48 is all over the place these past years. the graduation of the Old Gen members had a huge effect on the group. but now that all original Kami-7 is gone. it might truly be the new era of AKB48. I just hope that AKS will build up AKB48 by selecting the most standout members within each team and promoting them as the face of AKB as much as they can. just like what they did in the Old Gen era.

    yeah even the link in the original post says both men and women can participate, where did the "only women" thing come from?

    What is the extra gonna do btw? For all we know, they could be casted as pedestrian A or has some small roles (unless extra call like this always means a KFC/KnP esque MV).

    You need to have hands.

    Well Naachan cut her hair ffs, the obvious next step was a song about Radical Feminist Lesbian Separatism.
    They clearly just chickened out

    But they are only accepting single applications, not couples or something. I think if you wanted to do a romantic, couple-y thing, it would be better to try find actual couples than try to pair random people together.

    Now, about the female only thing that used to be posted, I have 3 theories:
    1. Simple mistake (forgot to write male)
    2. It's difficult to get a good ratio of males:females for extras since most wota who apply are male, so they opened application for females first to encourage them to apply
    3. They planned to do female extras only at first but male wota got mad and they decide to change it [hehe]

    Anyway, I still hope it's a cool song rather than cute one. Just having extras doesn't mean it's necessarily another Fortune Cookie or Kokoro no Placard. I'm curious to see how it works out. I was actually thinking of applying just out of curiosity, but due to several reasons (I live in Saitama prefecture, so the distance is a bit large especially considering the early time of the shoot; I'm very obviously foreign looking, so idk if they want that; my Japanese level is only conversational, so I'm worried about not understanding the instructions properly) I have decided not to.

    i still don't know what expect.

    i don't think they will give a typical 'kawaii' idol-song for her.. If it was any other member, I would be waiting for another KFC anyway, but not for Naachan
