During the handshake and autograph event at Pacifico Yokohama on October 25, 2015, details of AKB48’s 42nd single and Request Hour 2016 were announced.

The new single (title TBD) will be released on December 9, 2015, the day after AKB48 celebrates its 10th year anniversary.

The center for the upcoming single is AKB48 Group Leader Minami Takahashi, who is graduating from the group this year. This will be her final appearance on an AKB48 single.

Comments from Takahashi:
I have been assigned center position for my final AKB48 single.
The last time I stood center by myself was Sakura no Hanabiratachi, released when we were still on an independent label.
The single will be a definitive idol song in AKB48 style.
I am really happy that my final single here is an idol song.
Since it is not a song where I leave graduation messages for everyone, I sincerely hope it will be performed by many members and loved by all the fans even after I graduate.

Senbatsu members for 42nd singles are:

An overseas 46/48 fan who used to translate under the name of bilingual48. Can also be found at Nogizaka46 handshakes once every 2-3 months near Karin Ito’s lane – just look for the guy with purple sunglasses. Also, apparently I look like Akimoto-sensei, especially when wearing a suit.
