    New single!!! what a great news <3 After two years of just one single by year, this time we're getting two singles this year. Hopefully it could even increase to 3 singles by year eventually.

    Personally I'm happy and satisfied with the senbatsu! I'm glad for Mogi that she made it, it's deserved. Now the whole Yuunamogion are together in senbatsu! I'm also happy that Aichan was selected, I think the best moment to give a push to new members is soon after they join... This is a good sign for 17th gen as a whole, and she did great in the Rumor live last time. Lastly, the center, I was hoping for Yuiyui (it's been 4 years since her one and only center), or Maho (she's been on the rise lately) but I saw the rumor about Erii and I was fine with that choice too. it's a first time center, she's young, it feels new, fresh, and we most likely won't be getting a dance-focused song for the 3rd time, probably something cute/fun, that's what I want, this is why I was hoping for Yuiyui or Maho (also because I like them obviously haha), and it works with Erii too and I like her as well. So congrats to Erii!

    So yes generally I'm really satisfied with this, and I have high hopes for this single now! The title sounds interesting too, and the picture for the live stream looked like summer theme. I really hope that I can love this single, I need this >.< also looking forward to more details about the b-sides, this time we know that we'll get at least 2 MVs! (the Showroom senbatsu)

    Edit: Just saw the picture above with the outfits, OMG. This is definitely a fresh song and most likely a summer song. This is exactly what I wanted ahhhh <3<3<3

    Glad it’s 16nin, but I’m not sure about Erii. Does her popularity guarantee such a position? Genuinely asking, as I’ve fallen off the wagon of checking socials or HS sales. But I imagine they still want to keep the Produce48 fans.

    This is so funny to me because a week ago I tweeted that I'm ready for a new AKB48 single. Glad my prayers were heard!

    We can also safely assume one of the B-sides will be the Showroom Senbatsu with Hitomi center.

    Title TBA, but lineup will be:

    Team A: Iwatate Saho, Otake Hitomi
    Team K: Yamane Suzuha
    Team B: Shinozaki Ayana
    Team 8: Oda Erina, Oguri Yui, Onishi Momoka, Honda Hitomi

    What’s the point of going back to 16nin senbatsu especially for summer single which usually jam packed? You can easily do 20nin senbatsu and put more girls in it :fp:

    Well, you know, they released Halloween Night something like 2 months before the mentionned day.
    AKB48 and calendar are so so sometimes.

    AKB's jam packed summer singles were also bikini singles, which we haven't had in a long time.

    We don't even know yet it's a summer single, we haven't heard it or seen anything from it besides the issho.

    Even so, previous singles filled with lots of members were the ones leading up to sousenkyo, so big revenue expected. They probably need to save on wages for the concerts that are happening the same month lol.

    well, Sustainable was released late in the year too, like second half of September, it wasn't totally a summer song (no beach etc.) but it sounded like one and also the MV looked like one overall, they also started the promo in July, so it worked. So I think they could just do something like this again and it would be fine, but they need to start the promotions soon probably, like in this month... we know that they already have the clothes ready, and probably both the song/dance too. I hope we'll get to see a first performance of the song soon, then the MV!

    Sorry if it sound like a cliche argument, but I suppose Hiichan's presence alone prevents from doing any bikini single.
    The management probably doesn't want to alienate her huge oversea fanbase.
    Unless she starts going even a bit in more sexy gravure.

    Other thoughts:
    Assuming they are still targetting the Kouhaku (I'm not that sure actually), the management better not go wrong with the song and comes with something able to gather enough of the general public interest.
    Promotion wide, Moto Kare somewhat lacked buzz on social medias which probably played on the sales. There have to be some improvements there too.

    I think they wouldn't be doing a bikini MV even without Hiichan in senbatsu, AKB's last bikini MV was like in 2014? Labrador Retriever. it was long ago... speaking of this song, it's actually one of my favorite a-sides, and the costumes for this single (the white dresses with the blue touch, the ribbon) remind me a bit of the Labrador Retriever costumes. I really like this!

    I wish they could do another refreshing song like that :cute:

    I don't think it's just cause of Hiichan, tbh. People will continue to blame her Korean fanbase (not saying you specifically are doing that), but we haven't had a bikini single in years even before Produce 48. SKE and HKT released summer singles and neither of them were in bikinis. With HKT, you could argue it's also because of Nako's Korean fanbase, but that doesn't apply to SKE. Their center may have been young, but that didn't stop them from putting Jurina in bikini singles (or naked in a tub in Hebirote) back in the day.

    The trend shows that the general public prefers more demure styling now, seeing how 46 groups are considered the most popular nowadays. Some idol groups have been releasing music videos in bikinis, but none of them have taken off. I think it's generally just a thing of the past :shrug:

    48G itself.
    Not really so, SUPER☆GiRLS still release bikini MVs frequently and their MVs are still attracting many views. I think there are always many people in Japan who like bikini MV.
    SUPER☆GiRLS has never reached the popularity of either Hello Project, 48Gs, 46Gs, but who can anyway?
    Their 12 years existence and relative popularity shows that bikini MVs are still not a bad choice even today for groups featuring active and cute image, which 48Gs are.

    I think bikini MV certainly helps a group, but itself it isn't the key to success.

    Or for a certain popular group, it could create a kind of drawback and negative views...

    I didn't recall significant backlashes with 48G bikini MVs in general.
    Their most controversial MVs are Heavy Rotation (for being overtly erotic, it is technically not a bikini MV) and Einstein yori Dianna Agron (for being politically incorrect).
    None of these are bikini MV.
