AKB48 Watanabe Mayu turned 21 a couple days back and apparently the cast of her drama “Tatakau Shoten Girl” were kind enough to celebrate her birthday! Footage of the celebration and sneak peaks of her drama are in the news video above.
In the teaser, you can also hear a snippet of the theme song Watanabe will be singing for this drama, titled “Deai no tsuzuki”. Penned by Akimoto Yasushi, it differs from idol songs that Watanabe used to sing. With love as the theme, it will be a mature song complemented by an upbeat tune, composed by a music student who just graduated in March. His tune was apparently picked from amongst 1000 over entries.
Her song will be released as a single, date to be decided.
Glad Mayuyu moved on from jelly beans and trumpets! As for the drama, i am looking forward to seeing Chiba Yudai, who should be on every girl’s radar since his role in “Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu”.
