Easier than releasing another single I guess.
Wonder if they're having trouble securing HS venues for next summer.
I think they’re still trying to keep a low profile, hence why no janken or RH.
2019/12/04 AKB performed at FNS: Sustainable + Jingle Bell with Aqours!
the Sustainable live is so cute!!! Moeka waving in the end, then other girls waving too, adorable.
and the collab with Aqours is nice! I miss seeing AKB doing Christmas songs. Everyone looks good!
Public execution of AKB by Aqours
Japan Record Award 12/30
NyaaKB was robbed.
I uploaded the last performances of Sustainable! Here:
2019/12/30 Sustainable @ 61st Japan Record Awards
2019/12/31 Sustainable @ CDTV Premier Live 2019-2020
These were both very nice performances! I love that they used new outfits at JRA and they look so pretty. I really like Moeka's little hair ornament, she looks really cute Btw, JRA was a live performance, and the CDTV one is pre-recorded. These are the last Sustainable lives with the original center. I just want to say I really enjoyed this song and the promotions from the beginning until the end... it was great, I love the song, the nostalgic feeling, the senbatsu, the center, everything is very nice. Good job to AKB and to Moeka, thank you
@Mana Just wondering, did they confirm those are the last performances with Moeka or is it just your assumption? Although Moeka did have her graduation stage already, she is participating in the singing competition finalist concert and maybe the last Sustainable HS in February, hence her activities in AKB are not completely over yet for one more month. Unless it was officially confirmed there’s still a chance for another performance in this time.
There is only one activity listed for her in 2020 on the official schedule, and it is not for Sustainable.
Do they always announce TV performances etc. on those pages and how early do they do it (for example, would they announce something that's say a month from now)? I never check those individual schedules so I'm not sure how they work
Also if Sustainable or even Saikyo twintail ranked in Request hour, wouldn't they have Moeka perform those? I might be wrong, but since her activities are not over until at least early February, she might at least do that.
@Riina Yes I read it on Moeka's Twitter;
For Request Hour, she said in mid-December that her activities end before Request Hour so she won't be able to participate. Then on the day of JRA, she made a tweet to say that it's the last stage for her as AKB48, that it has new outfits, and she asked fans not to miss it. She also made a tweet for CDTV and she said that this one was pre-recorded. Also after the JRA live aired, a lot of members posted photos with Moeka, like it was like a goodbye performance for her. There was also this photo (really cute photo btw ):
So yes all of this confirms that it's the last stage of Moeka as AKB... the fact that she will participate in the finalists concert is actually a surprise, they announced it during her graduation stage as a surprise, it's not something she was supposed to do. I think her activities as AKB already ended and all she has is handshake events and the finalists live. She also already had her goodbyes in Mirai Monster where she was regular.
@Mana I didn't know the said it herself so then it makes sense. I still think in case Sustainable or Saikyo twintail ranked in RH she might appear as surprise appearance though... Not for other songs of course.
I wonder who will be the center of Sustainable when they perform it after Moeka's graduation. Yuiyui seems like a good candidate...
During AKB48 Zenkoku tour 2019, it was Yuiri
You're right, completely forgot about that It would be interesting if she became the usual center for it whenever they perform this song from now on.
Saturday's HS event in Osaka has been postponed due to precautions for the possible spread of the coronavirus:
Single of the Year at 34th Japan Gold Disc Awards.
(near the end)
Old news but sustainable is certified 2X million seller in billboard japan. Is this the first time a non-ssk related akb single is able surpassed 2m+ copies? Quite amazing
Yes The only other singles that got over 2M on Billboard are
Tsubasa wa Iranai (2,507,403)
Negaigoto no Mochigusare (2,649,234)
Teacher Teacher (2,922,460)
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but that's all as far as I know...
