Thank You and Good-bye Mirukii! NMB48 Reveals Sentimental MVs for “Boku wa Inai” and “Ima Naraba”!
NMB48 bids farewell to Miyuki Watanabe in the MVs for “Boku wa Inai” and “Ima Naraba” from their 15th single “Boku wa Inai” (release date: August 3)!
The MV for “Boku wa Inai” takes Miyuki Watanabe to Thailand where she keeps running into Ayaka Okita, Yuka Kato, Rika Kishino, Nagisa Shibuya, Kei Jonishi, Miru Shiroma, Ririka Suto, Airi Tanigawa, Reina Fujie, Sae Murase, Fuko Yagura, Shu Yabushita, Sayaka Yamamoto, Akari Yoshida, and Yuri Ota. There’s an eerie feeling to the story, as if “Mirukii” is being haunted by her soon to be former group members. The scene where “Sayanee” (Sayaka Yamamoto) is shown lying next to her in bed is particularly emotional.
“Ima Naraba” is a duet between Sayaka Yamamoto and Miyuki Watanabe (SayaMirukii) and was composed by Sayaka (with lyrics by Yasushi Akimoto). Taking place as the popular filming location Longwood Station in Chiba prefecture, the “abandoned shopping mall” look lends to the impending loneliness as Sayanee bids farewell to her longtime partner at the center of NMB48. Slides of the duo together are also included to show their relationship in the spotlight since 2010.
“Boku wa Inai” will be released in 4 different CD/DVD versions as well as a theater version. The Type-A exclusive track is “Sora Kara Ai ga Kudattekuru” by Team N. The Type-B exclusive track is “Saigo no Goshakudama” by Team M. The Type-C exclusive track is “Moso Machine 3-Gouki” by Team BII. The Type-D exclusive song is “Short Cut no Natsu” by Ririka Sutou. Except for “Short Cut no Natsu”, each of the DVDs include the MVs for their respective songs. Additional DVD contents include: NMB48 Live House Tour 2016 Zepp Namba – March 30 evening – Aika Nishimura graduation (Type-A), NMB48 Live House Tour 2016 Zepp Namba – March 31 afternoon (Type-B), NMB48 Live House Tour 2016 Zepp Namba – March 31 evening – Ayaka Umeda graduation (Type-C), a variety show comedy segment (Yoshimoto Shin-Kigeki vol. 15) and a making of video for “Boku wa Inai” (Type-D).
Watanabe’s graduation concerts were held World Memorial Hall in Kobe on July 3rd and 4th, but she will remain in NMB48 until her final NMB48 Theater performance on August 9, 2016.
