    It's gonna be much easier to just set the theme of the lyric. Some lyrics of BNK48 can be not very appreciable to the Thai. I don't get the "paper airplane" metaphor in 365 nichi and think it better be changed into migrating bird or something. The lyric of Anata to Christmas Eve is not relatable in this country of no winter and whose 92% of population does not celebrate Christmas.

    I remember SNH48 fans were discussing this topic. Still, I don't think its a big deal. Last few SNH Request Hours had a lot of AKB songs at the top even though their are dozens of SNH original songs. Japan is also 90% non-christian but its not hard for us to relate to the spirit of Christmas although the religious meaning is not considered. Also, the paper airplane reference is not a Japanese cultural reference but instead a symbolic one:

    Life is a paper airplane
    Place your hopes in it and let it fly away
    with wind as its sole support
    it will keep on flying
    ......

    I still feel its easily do-able.

    Thai language is very different to Japanese in term of pronouncing (high-low tone or วรรณยุกต์) and each word่'s ending voice.


    According to Kru Man, BNK48 music director, it's hard to find Thai words which have exact meaning with original lyrics and sound fit with the melody as Thai words have their own melody.

    So, you argued me by affirming the Japanese celebrated Christmas? I said "celebrate Christmas" didn't say "religiously celebrate Christmas". If it is Valentine's Day, we kinda celebrate it, do something special on this day. If the song were "anata to Valentine's Day", it'd be much more relatable.

    As a Thai I don't feel it, why should one place hope in paper airplane?, does '365 days' mean I should fly new airplane everyday? why should I do so?

    There are indeed the KFC version of the profiles. But those are not the "official theater portraits" and they are still using Aitakatta's as their FB and Instagram profiles. I heard this is from the Japanese management side. They probably want to change them yearly just like AKB.

    I'm saying Japan celebrates Christmas in a nonreligious way and I think Thais do too maybe not as much. Look at BNK below video


    Paper airplane and 365 days are not Japanese ideas.
    If anything they are American ideas so they are well known around the world - paper airplane is like "message in a bottle" and 365 days means "every day all year round".

    Anyway, if it's a bother then never mind.:approve:

    Sir you're reaching :'> I'm french with 0 Japanese knowledge and I perfectly understood the metaphor

    I wish they would change them with each single but that'll probably be too much work :<

    Forgot to add this earlier but they were selling a boxset containing various Changsuek(Thai National Football Team) x BNK48 goods, along with the ticket to the match and a limited edition shirt with member's name. You could choose which member's name will be on the back of your shirt.

    And this is the result of the first 5000 shirts (from 10000):

    BNK48 will perform Shonichi, with the new costumes, for the first time for the match on March 22.

    I think I kinda understand the concept of the lyric, keep walking toward your dream and view everything positively, right? Still, it has weird narration to me. Ae, the music director of the group also said the Japanese had different fashion to write lyric.

    It won't be too much work. They must take photo for album photo set anyway.

    ^^^ Ofc that kind of stuff get posted when I’m at university :<

    Well personally I interpret it as a reassuring message concerning future.
    Just like a paperplane flying you’ll have ups and downs but you’ll always reach a destination.
    Things will get better by themselves that’s why you don’t have to worry.
    Just trust your fate or something like that~
    But I might be influenced by a French expression which kinda remind me of the lyrics.

    Oh you’re right they just have to take those pics Andy change the ones on the website

    Surely not one of the first gen. Wonder if she auditioned for the 2nd gen though.
