AKB48 have revealed the MVs for the coupling song and bonus tracks from their 10th anniversary single “Kimi wa Melody” (release date: March 9)
In “LALALA Message”, coupling song for “Kimi wa Melody”, the Next Generation AKB48 Senbatsu assemble at their school to create some final memories before it closes its doors for good. Armed with their smartphones and Anna Iriyama putting things together, it looks like the second half will tug at your heartstrings.

Rara Goto takes the center position for “Gonna Jump” (Type-A exclusive track), leading the members of SKE48 in an exciting performance in a gym of a school where all the students have rich parents (how else could they get SKE48 and all those decorations otherwise?).

NMB48 turns back the clock in “Shigamitsuita Seishun” (Type-B exclusive track), using filters and a vaguely familiar sounding arrangement to create the feel of a song from a different era. There are also quite a few spectacular scenes of rooftops and the members running in slow motion.

NGT48 makes a big first impression as they run and dance in the snow of Niigata in the MV for “Max toki 315-go” (Type-D exclusive track). There have been many MVs filmed in snowy locations before but, when was the last time you saw a group dancing in short skirts as snowflakes fell around them?
