At the Nagoya handshake event today, the title of AKB48’s upcoming single was unveiled – it’s called Kaze wa Fuiteiru (in English “The Wind is Blowing”). The title makes it sounds like a ballady type song but it’s not going to be I imagine. Previews of this song will be coming out soon so once I hear anything I’ll post it on here.
Also some details on who the members will be in the 2 Undergirls group songs have been announced. What’s odd is there’s no mention of Myao, Yuka or Fresh Lemon in these groups. There’s got to be a mistake – no way would these 3 not be involved in some way or the other. It seems that NMB48 members will be joining SKE48 members in AKB48 singles from now on too.
