AKB48 Get Fresh, Funky, and Footloose in the MVs From Their 50th Single!
AKB48 unveil a colorful palette of MVs from their 50th single “11-Gatsu no Anklet” (release date: November 22)!
The MV for “Omoidasete Yokatta” (Type-A) has the members of STU48 on a hilltop overlooking the Seto Inland Sea and raising sky blue banners under clear skies. The refreshing music and imagery beckons viewers towards the temperate coastline.
With soap bubbles floating and raindrops all around them, Team 8 deliver a refreshing performance in the MV for “Ikiru Koto ni Nekkyou wo!” (Type-B). There is also a scene of the members playing kick the can, which is a throwback to “Happy End”, the song in which Yui Oguri was the center member.
The MV for “Hohoemi no Toki” (Type-C) has new unit 7-byogo, Kimi ga Suki ni Naru. (Saya Kawamoto, Satone Kubo, Narumi Kuranoo, Haruka Komiyama, Megu Taniguchi, Seina Fukuoka, Nako Yabuki) rotating on a merry go round as time seems to stand still.
Sayaka Yamamoto leads a red and white festival of funk in “Yaban na Kyūkai” (Type-D) alongside the Dance Senbatsu. The high contrast setting and simple backgrounds make for a striking appearance highlighting the performance.
Yui Oguri and the Under-17 Senbatsu escape into the fantasy world of comic books in the bright and poppy MV for “Hōtei Sokudo to Yūetsukan” (Type-E). Daydreams of being princesses and superheroes whisk away the young members from their everyday life as schoolgirls.
“11-Gatsu no Anklet” will be released in 5 limited edition CD/DVD versions and 5 regular CD/DVD versions. Type-A includes the exclusive track “Omoidasete Yokatta” by STU48. Type-B includes the exclusive track “Ikiru Koto ni Nekkyou wo!” by AKB48 Team 8. Type-C includes the exclusive track “Hohoemi no Toki” by the new unit 7-byogo, Kimi ga Suki ni Naru.
