Compilation of performances for AKB48 “Labrador Retriever”

31 May

Music Station

Music Japan

AKB48 Show!
This version showcases the full senbatsu(what seems like 36 of them?!) and the full song! At the start, Yukirin and Sasshi had a newscasting corner where they revealed secrets about several members. According to their expose, Mayuyu’s first reaction to being appointed center for Labrador Retriever was “I’m actually more of a kitty fan!”.

This version is without the sister group members so its interesting to see the AKB48 in its original form.

There’s nothing much about the talk segment so i shall not bother to post it here. Basically Tamori san asked Sasshi and Mayuyu about their placements in the preliminary rankings. Sasshi said she hoped to continue being No.1, even though a senior in her agency told her she’d probably drop 92 places. For Mayuyu, Tamori san asked her if she thought its weird Sasshi is currently No.1. Mayuyu denied but she also hopes to overtake Sasshi and eventually claim No.1.

    thank you for the compilation, I like a little more the song still better than Sayonara crawl. I don’t understand why Akip choose a dog song for Mayu I am sure he must know she doesn’t like dogs.

      Maybe Japanese like dogs better than cats? I’m quite sure he was thinking more of the people who would buy this CD as compared to Mayuyu when he wrote this song.
