Just announced. Keyakizaka46's 8th Single will be released on February 27th.
They're ditching the DVDs in favor of Blu-rays like what happened with Nogizaka46 last November!
I'm predicting this is going to be the first Keyaki single to NOT feature Techi as the center of an A-side...
(But I'm still not putting hopes on Keyaki 'unlocking' the dreaded Sony geoblocks on Youtube that we have struggled, and are still struggling, with.)
Hoping that they'll deliver something new! New center, new line-up, new song genre!
Anticipation up up!
Pardon me for feeling slightly mixed delight, since this pushes back any possible Hiragana single, but I'll just enjoy what we've got. Now what does the paint-spattered jacket symbolize? What kind of song will it be? Who will centre it? Maybe we'll get more info this week. One hint included the phrase: "The new Keyakizaka46." How many 2gens will perform, I wonder, and where in the formation? The announcement page lists 19 separate outlets and the extras they give with the release. There will be, not surprisingly, three pairs handshake events (Nagoya, Chiba, Osaka, all in March) and six individual events (Kyoto, Nagoya, Chiba, and three in Yokohama, stretching from March to mid-July).
The likelihood of Techi centring this is next to nil. For me, that's unfortunate, but I'm going to enjoy whoever's there and hope for Techi's full recovery. I hope they can come up with a good song that suits whoever's centering it and that will sell. Moving straight from all this tumult to another million-seller would be amazing.
Really hoping for either Suzumoto or Risa center! So excited for this single! I want a different genre for the girls and also less messy choreography. I like the whole re-using dances for a story but sometimes it isn't very...pleasing to look at and gets old, at least for me. Sometimes it just looks like flailing limbs lol
^ Not readable.
Hoping it's Yuipon center! I loved it when she centered for Kohaku!
I’m very excited for this! I do hope for a center replacement - seeing how well other girls take on the role of center ~
Personally not too excited about the blu-ray discs, mostly because i dont have anything to play them on
Can't wait for the single. The image looks promising. Only 1 month or so to wait............
I expect 2nd gen being on it and Techi taking her well deserved break.
Just from the image it's Gonna be a glass wo ware type or much better. Can't wait!
i hope tecchi on it,
it will be choir-type song so se can do it
suzumon for center!!!
Akanen said on her mobame that she really likes the 8th single song. I don't know how to feel about it anymore. She said before how much she liked I'm Out, and I have to agree with on that one so I wonder if I'm gonna like this 8th single song
Everyone involved is going to say they like every song every time.
Maybe she likes it because she's centering though? I'm hoping Risa and expecting Yuipon with Sugai as a dark horse.
I hope the song is good and can enter my playlist.
For the center, I'd loved to see a new center. But, if they keep Tecchi as the center, I don't mind at all.
W-center would be nice! Trying to push two girls while Tecchi is given a good rest. Could we have Futari-Saison kind of song?
Ummm, am I the only one whom didn't feel so excited about this single?
I think my one wish for this single is for them to get through it without any issues, way too much went wrong last year.
If it's anything like the last single the teaser image won't mean much. Maybe the green jacket will be part of their uniform. The uniform for Ambivalent was fine in the music video but it looked pretty weak when compared to the AKB and Nogi members in that IZ4648 collab, hopefully this single's uniform will be more interesting.
People in the Hiragana thread seem pretty ambivalent about it too.
I don't think anyone is getting what they've wanted out of Kanji Keyaki for a very long time now. There's an aura of discontent the girls need to dispel. A good single with the girls enjoying themselves should do the trick.
