[Updated]HKT48 to release 4th single “Hikaeme I love you!”

26 Sep

Updated with full PV and coupling songs….

Full PV – Hikaeme I Love You

Team K – Natsu no Mae

Team H – Idol no Ouja

Nako-Miku – Namaiki Lips


HKT48 has released their 4th single on 24 September 2014.

Kodama Haruka takes the center position for the first time for title song “Hikaeme I love you”.  As the original center of HKT48, Kodama has been shafted aside ever since HKT48’s debut. This appointment signifies her bittersweet return after struggling for 2 years.

Also added to the performing lineup is SKE48’s Kimoto Kanon, who took up a concurrency with HKT48 after the 48-group shuffle in February this year.

Below is full senbatsu:
Team H: Anai Chihiro, Kodama Haruka, Kojina Yui, Sashihara Rino, Tashima Meru, Tanaka Miku, Matsuoka Natsumi, Yabuki Nako, Yamamoto Mao
Team KIV: Ota Aika, Tomonaga Mio, Kimoto Kanon, Miyawaki Sakura, Motomura Aoi, Moriyasu Madoka
Kenkyuusei: Kurihara Sae

The songs from HKT are usually too childish for my liking but this one sounds good.

    I’m putting an extra “Like” on the cover that features Sashi.

    Yes, maybe a little “childish”, but I think they are meant to marketed to a younger demographic.

    I like those chocolate-covered cherries at Christmas, but sometimes that sweet syrup that is the filling is just too much, and I can’t take very much. They are good, but I get overwhelmed by the glucose.

    Would that describe your feelings about The Hawkstown 48?

      Yes I’m definitely out of their age-group when they start singing songs like Melon Juice. Rather than being overwhelmed by their sweetness, i think i’m more embarrassed for them. But that’s just me. I prefer AkiP’s shoujo manga style lyrics and this new single seems to have it, although i will still have to wait for full version to find out.

    This is the first HKT song I like a little ( I actually don’t like the group ), but the MV is too similar to the last Team A MV. I wonder if this group is gonna experience a fall in sales, I mean AKB barely got 1m sales, and SKE and NMB drop the sales as well.

      Me too, i don’t like the group but this song is idol-ish and what most would like. The lyrics are meaningful too.

      As for sales i guess we’ll have to wait and find out.

      my guess is that they’ll drop in number of sales. knp barely got 1 million sales in a week, i think this is going to become a trend
