AKB48 – Give Me Five Tracklisting/Members Revealed

13 01 2012

The lineup for AKB48’s next single Give Me Five and all it’s coupling songs has been revealed. Whilst there’s been no complaints about the lineup for the leading track, there’s been plenty of debate about who Aki-P has chosen for the coupling songs with many complaining that members such as Mayuyu have been left out especially for the track Sweet & Bitter as the normally untouchable Kami7 (named after the Top 7 AKB48 members) has been replaced by Selection 6 with Sasshi taking over what would normally be Mayuyu’s position. Maybe Aki-P has noticed that Sasshi is becoming more popular than Mayuyu? Many are saying that Selection 6 equals to Aki-P’s favorite Top 6 members.

Also it looks like the Undergirls have been scrapped for this single and replaced with 2 Special Girl teams and there’s too many members from other 000 teams starting to filter into AKB48 singles now as well. I understand about having Rena and Jurina but leave the rest out. The fans will probably lash out on Google+ to Aki-P about the decision to leave out a lot of girls like Harugon and Moeno out of this single. So this is how the tracklisting looks like for the Type A & B editions:

What? WHAT! But Lovetan, Harugon, and Moeno are all undergirls . . . . (wait Lovetan is listed for special girls B). KK!!! Trainees before members like MOENO. Rage! I’m curious about the Selection 6 because Kojima Haruna and Kashiwagi Yuki was also left out of it. Hmmmm. Maybe there is going to be graduations because this song sounds different from past singles from around this time.

I’m not yet sure what to make of AKB taking SKE’s singles format, but it seems to me that most of the rage comes from the fact that Yukirin, Mayuyu and Haruna were skipped over in favor of Sasshi in the Selection 6. SGA with their aptly titled song ‘NEW SHIP’ makes a lot of sense. It’s a showcase of AKB’s future generation (with Jurina at the helm). SGB, however, i don’t really get. Is it a way to get Yuki/Mayu/Haruna/Rena to lead without being under Acchan/Yuko’s shadow? Because that’s what it looks like – Yuki/Mayu/Haruna/Rena backed by entire lower senbatsu+UG.

Both Aki-P and Togasaki have said last year that 2012 will be a fresh start for AKB48 so this could well be the start of that?
