AKB48 Goes on an Uploading Spree.

September 30, 2010

I took a look at the official AKB48 Youtube channel today and was faced with nearly 20 new videos, uploaded just a few hours ago.  AKB used to do these short, little segments where they would act out a specific situation with the camera (the camera is usually the POV of a love interest), varying from tame(wishing a happy birthday) to blunt(requesting a kiss).  Whether you find them cute or strange, they were interesting projects and remind me now of the upcoming PSP game, which will probably be full of videos like these.

Here are a few that I picked out:

Miyazawa Sae and Ono Erena/”Congratulations”

Minegishi Minami and Sashihara Rino/”I like you”

You can see the rest at the official channel.

i don’t know why i’m posting this fairly old video other than to say right now that it’s probably among my all time favorite PVs from akb.

something about the uncomplicated cute dance, how the motions fit with the music.  how they dance on a freshly cut grass field, with bright contrasting colors on a cold overcast day.  how they wear simple color-coordinated red and green uniforms, without unnecessary flair.  i guess that’s the word: simple.
