Yasai Sisters Are Back!

23 06 2011

Remember last year when 25 members of AKB48 dressed up as various vegetables to star in a CM for a healthy vegetable drink? Well now they’re back in a new CM for the Kagome drink “Yasai Ichinichi Kore Ippon” and the CM is called “Kore Ichi/AKB48 Yasai Slider”.

This time round they’ve decided to add 5 more members to 30 and those taking part in the CM are Acchan, Takamina, Jurina (SKE48), Mayuyu, Yuko, Mariko, Tomochin, Kojima, Kitarie, Yukirin, Sae, Akicha, Chiyuu, Miichan, Myao, Yokoyama, Ami Maeda, Gekikara (SKE48), Mocchi, Mikapon, Suuchan, Moeno, Sasshi, Lovetan, Sayaka, Mukaido Manatsu (NMB48), Akane Takayanagi (SKE48), Kanon Kimoto (SKE48), Sayaka Yamasato (NMB48) and Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48). As you can see from the list above, there’s a number of members from SKE48 and NMB48 included in the CM as well. As for which member represents which vegetable I don’t know yet. I’ll find out the list and update this post.

There are 2 different versions of the CM – one for women and one for men. The one geared towards women features a group of them having a chat around a table with one taking a sip of the Kagome healthy drink which changes to showing Acchan and the other Yasai Sisters going down a spiral slide. The male CM version has one solitary man taking his lunch break and taking a sip of the drink – the rest of the CM is the same as the other one. Check out both versions of the CM below.

They updated the vegetable suits. Cool.🙂

This year’s suits look a bit less spectacular than last year’s ones, IMHO. But I guess, since they are much lighter and more airy, it is to avoid heat (saves air conditioning and keeps the girls more cool automatically in hot summer).

Mayuyu and Jurina – Future centers?

It’s a cert isn’t it that Mayuyu and Jurina will become centers once some of the older members start to graduate.

Judging by Shinoda Mariko’s long stay in AKB48.. Will it take another 5 years or more before Atsuko graduates?

On the nutritional value side, the fruits and vegetables have retained their kawaii content. Not losing, and for some, gaining more kawaii-ness this year.

I like my greens; especially Lettuce, Komatsuna, and Jute…
