Nogizaka46 PV and CD Covers for “Nandome no Aozora ka”

18 Sep

The music video for Nogizaka46 10th single “Nandome no Aozora ka” was unveiled awhile back. This song is dubbed as a legendary song by producer Akimoto Yasushi and talks about treasuring the moment and not letting youth pass by. A translation of the lyrics here. The MV takes on an interesting plot as a guy finds himself enrolled in an all-girls school. He experiences awkward moments like not being able to find a male toilet, not being able to change into sports attire in his classroom, being teased by his classmates etc, but eventually becomes friends with everyone. He develops a crush on center Ikuta Erika, and is advised to confess to her by the end of the video.

Rather entertaining music video, I must say. And Ikuta Erika is very pretty!

Ikuta Erika’s official comeback was at Nogizaka’s recent concert, where they also performed “Nandome no Aozora ka” for the first time.
