AKB48 38th Single [Kibouteki Refrain] (FULL MV.) from Valen S. on Vimeo.

In what may be a very shocking but pleasant surprise, AKB48’s graduated golden girls Maeda Atsuko, Shinoda Mariko, Itano Tomomi and Oshima Yuko were featured in the music video of AKB48 38th single “Kibouteki Refrain”, set to release 26th November.
Starting with Takahashi Minami, the centers in the history of AKB48 showed up one after another, running a relay race to pass on 2 golden microphones. This action signifies the passing on of the center position. Watanabe Mayu and Miyawaki Sakura eventually receive the microphones and perform live with the rest of the senbatsu members.
There are lots of running scenes in this music video, which is also the theme for the jacket covers.
The single comes in 4 types in both regular and limited editions. Kojizaka46(centered by Kojima Haruna) will also have their first original song “Kaze no Razen” plus MV included in Type D.

    well well this single is going all out with so many things, definitely the best single of this year. I’d loved even more if it was the sousenkyo one, the meaning would have been even better everyone passing the mic to Mayu ……… Anyway I think management knew this was the last chance to have a good single ( AKB has at least one hit single per year )

    When I watched the live they had some weeks ago, I didn’t like the song at all. However, after all the hype about the graduated members and after watching the short ver mysteriously I like the song jaja
