    On November 13th, AKB48’s sister group SKE48 held a release commemoration handshake event for their new song, “Okie Dokie”, at Makuhari Messe in Chiba.

    This event attracted approximately 10,000 of their fans and announced that 500,000 copies of this new single were sold in the first week of sales showing off their rise in popularity. This group also aims to participate at NHK’s Kouhaku Uta Gassen. The “Double Matsui” told of their ambition with “I want to be prepared.” (Matsui Rena (20)) and “Kohaku will be okie dokie!” (Matsui Jurina (14)) and added their title of their single to this comment.

    Also, their hometown of Nagoya’s pro-baseball team (Chunichi Dragons) is currently competing in the Japan Series. On the 12th, their team won through the first round of this tournament and Rena was participating AKB48’s handshaking event at that time. She then revealed, “During the handshaking event, the fans told me of their victory. I celebrated in backstage,” and showed her smile to the audience.

    Also regarding Fukuoka’s new group HKT48, Jurina displayed her support with, “I want to do my best with them. I have never met them yet so I would love to do that soon.” Rena commented, “I would love to do a fun performance with them, as friends.”

    SKE48 reveals PV preview + information for their new single, “Kataomoi Finally”!
    by kurumi on December 18, 2011 at 10:40 pm
    [​IMG]
    During their handshake event for “Okie Dokie” at the Nagoya Port Messe in Aichi on December 18th, idol group SKE48 revealed new information about their upcoming single “Kataomoi Finally“!

    After performing the song “Okie Dokie”, member Matsui Jurina turned to the crowd and said, “To everyone gathered in the venue, we have a slightly early Christmas present from all of us!” A screen prepared on stage showed clips of “Okie Dokie”, followed by the words “An Urgent Announcement!” Fans who were present at the event had the special opportunity to see which members had been chosen for the group’s eighth single “Kataomoi Finally”, as their names were announced one by one on the screen.

    The sixteen members chosen to participate in “Kataomoi Finally” reappeared on stage in new outfits and gave a performance of their new song, drawing the line between SKE48’s bright, refreshing songs and their new, serious one. Following the performance, fans watched as clips from the music video were shown on the screen. The PV which contains more shocking subject matter such as homosexual love, jealousy, bullying, robbery, pleasure, and violence, earned some expressions of wonder from the crowd.

    Once the event had ended, the girls were interviewed about their upcoming single by reporters. “Homosexual love is one of the themes… I filmed [the music video] feeling like I’d become a boy,” said member Matsui Jurina. “There’s some skinship in there that’s absolutely unordinary for me (laughs), so please pay attention to it.”

    Matsui Rena also commented, “This time, ‘Kataomoi Finally’ is a song that feels a little different to what we’ve been doing up until now, so we’re really looking forward to the fan response. It was really scary filming the dance scene in a high place (on the roof of a building), but I’m really pleased with how amazingly it turned out.”

    One reporter asked the girls, “Are all of you in one-sided loves?”, prompting Matsui Rena to reply, “I’m in love with Churi (Takayanagi Akane)!” Upon hearing this, Takayangi replied, “I’m happy [to hear that], but I guess it is a one-sided love (laughs). But when ‘Kataomoi Finally’ comes out next year, maybe it’ll be a mutual love, or maybe it really will be the end of the ‘kataomoi’ (unrequited love) finally,” earning a laugh from the members.

    Without further ado, check out the covers, track lists, participating members, and PV previews which were revealed on SKE48’s official YouTube channel today, below!
