    Techi, Neru, Mon, Odanana, Naako withdrew/graduated; because of covid they were not able to release any single or hold concerts as well (I think 9th was planned to be released in December/January then postponed to April); lots of negativity surrounded Keyaki and I’m sure there were more stuff (we’re not aware of) that drove S&F (probably Sony too) to decide the rebranding

    Just kidding, I think @DelicateEmpress already explained it really well.

    The auditions were held under the name of Toriizaka46, and later changed to Keyakizaka46 when they debuted.

    Yup. To the chagrin of all those who bought domain names, made usernames and fan crafts. At least continuing to use Keyakizaka has some merits

    I have absolutely no problem at all with AEON card, actually as a product it has nothing to do with people outside Japan. On the contrary, as a fan, I feel flattered on behalf of our girls, that OUR girls are chosen to communicate a financial product/service that seems to be higher-class, refined and at its own niche (I guess this card is aiming towards white collar young people).

    But I really cannot understand how the "Nobody's fault" title (or even lyrics) can be even slightly associated with the concept of the credit card... Personally I also do not like this 1st song of the new group to be associated with a TVC of any product or service. It's the song of Sakurazaka46's fresh, new, maiden voyage for god sake!

    They could have "ordered" a new song with content more compatible with the concept that could also be incorporated into the repertoire of Sakurazaka46.

    Saimajo was Mechakari's launch CM, and we received 21 different CM version for each members (22 if you include the all member ver). According to several sources, the Mechakari CEO does appear to have a bit of a hand in the creation of Saimajo

    I do agree the nobofa feels a bit off, and couldn't help but to wonder if there is no other coupling song more suitable to match the theme, or whether they haven't finished producing - recording the coupling songs yet

    At first NF isn't suit for this CM. Music and video isn't connecting with each other at all!

    If you max out your credit card and can't pay your bills, it's nobody's fault...

    I disagree here. I think any CM that gets their song song airplay on television, and showcases the front/most known members of the group gets an okay from me. Most people don't really care about what they're advertising, but if the song and cm sounds and looks good, the advert itself will stick in people's minds more and that's good enough for recognition for the general public and whatever brand they're advertising.

    That being said, I agree that the song doesn't sound very CM ish lol, they could have went with a coupling song, but I understand why they went with the title.

    @minaeshi Any CM with the group's songs is great publicity for the girls of course... From the advertised product/service perspective it may attract appeal simply through reflecting the appeal of the song/group but in case of incompatibility of the concept the risk is significant and any serious business/advertisee should NOT overlook.

    But in my case, though I am flettered to see Sakurazaka46 appear in serious TV context, I find the correlation of the specific song with the product at least strange.

    And, also as a fan, I would wish that AEON card would subsidize/support an ad-hoc song/MV production specifically for them. More songs for us, the better.

    Arguably 10Gatsu or Dare are not very credit card CM-like songs either. I agree that in this particular case audio and video are not very well matched. Not that it matters that much. If it gets them views and exposure it simply is a good CM.

    I dunno about that, I think it kinda fits. As figured in a song with a minor key such as Nobody's Fault, it may sound weird to some ears.

    It is the carrier single so it has to have the hell promoted out of it.
