    So, my opinion on Sustainable music video!

    First of all I really like it overall, I already said I love the song, and now I love the music video too. if I have to say one negative thing is that there are too many transitions and they go too fast, I feel that it would have been better if they edited it differently and give us time to look at things instead of cutting so often. Other than this, everything is good! I love that every member has a close-up and wow they look so beautiful <3 I already see comments on Youtube making lists of members names along with the time on the video for their close-up. Great way to introduce all members to fans easily. Besides I really think this senbatsu has the members that will be important for the current and future AKB (I actually feel that none of these girls will graduate soon, hopefully!). I also see many people asking for a member's name along with the time of their close-up so yes, that was a great idea to make new fans! and they should do it more often now.

    I liked the different scenes and locations and all members look really good too. Moeka looks adorable! Chiho is so pretty :cute: Yuiyui is so beautiful too! all of them, really. I noticed all the references to past songs, but I found it a bit funny that there was a reference to Teacher Teacher since the song is different than the other ones LOL but I like it so, I don't mind XD about Moeka's duck face, I actually think she didn't do it much and the most obvious one was when she said "boku" which is just part of the pronounciation LOL I saw a lot more natural expressions of her here which is what suits her the best imo. I love her smile. She looks really pretty and a lot of people praise her for being cute <3

    I watched the making-of video as well and wow Yuiyui is so pretty there :cute: Yukirin also when she talked to the camera. and Moeka was really cute in the end when saying her message along with other girls!

    Lastly about the short version of Team 8 music video, I find it nice! I guess the quality could be better LOL but the girls look good and I'm just happy it gets a music video because I love that song :chuffed:

    Little offtopic: Is JE management checking Stage48? They have started YouTube channel! :awesome:

    ___________________________

    And in back to thread. Are views going not a little bit slow for "Sustainable"? Also release date for this MV was not so good, because it has been covered on Twitter's trending board by Nogi's 8th anniversary, even if AKB's MV is so much better than new Nogi's MV.

    Anyway... I'm quite worried about sales. Also when I see that Yahagi as center has not sold her slots for handshakes. Her scandal is affecting her popularity so much. It's not good forecast for new single's sales.

    They made it impossible for a single to sell less than a million.

    Considering the day where most of senbatsu members were selling all their slots are long gone, 19/28 sold out slots without gimmicks is more than solid for someone of her experience.

    55th single, 2nd resale round

    I'm taking Manaka no longer selling well as a personal insult and am personally offended. At least Naru selling well tho~

    Same round of the previous singles.

    52nd: 0/24
    53th: 9/16
    54th: 8/19
    55th: 2/28
    56th: 1/30

    She has more slots now, which is always a good sign.

    What a bad extension it is!!

    The end of the world is getting near!!

    The center isn't PD48 alumnee hence most of Kpop fans don't watch the MV :fear:

    Also poor HS result =/= no one-million sales. Like, look at NWM's result. And although Moeka's HS sales decreased, some members have their HS sales increased... *cough*thatchihogirl*cough*

    Chiho is an eye catcher. Yumiko is basic it took me more than a year to recognize her.
    While with Chiho on her first AKB performance got my eye right away.

    Regarding the sales, there is a site that track the number based on the number of sold out slots. It passed 1M copies already if I'm not mistaken.

    About Chiho and Yumirin, all of Yummy's slots are goraijo card. And her lane always long as frik (stu lanes lately placed beside eitos). From what I see, Yumirin's lane always has more people than Chiho (until now). We'll see in Sustainable.

    For me, Yumirin stands out more than Chiho. Maybe I'm just more used to her but when watching STU stuff, the two girls I identify the quickest are Yumirin and Hinapyo (next to Naachan ofc). Yumirin has really soft and attracting features in my opinion and I think, as with most things, it's a matter of taste. This is not to diminish any of Chiho's success and/or popularity; I just think we shouldn't forget about Yumirin all that quickly.
