General Information

Sakura no Hanabiratachi 2008 is AKB48's 8th Major Single, 10th Overall and the 8th and last single released under DefSTAR. Marking AKB's 10th Single, a re-recording of AKB's debut single Sakura no Hanabiratachi was released including now members from a full AKB48 with its three teams already established (compared to the 1st Gen (later Team A) version released during their Indies era).

The scandal related with this single has been rumored to be the reason why this single was their last release with Def-Star. around half year later, AKB signed with a new contract with KING RECORDS and has been working with them until today.

  • all the AKB48 Members appeared in PV for a 2nd time. (first one being in BINGO!)
  • this was the first time all the AKB48 members appeared in a single cover.
  • in 2010, an special Sakura no Hanabiratachi 2010 was made but the titled was changed later on. the reason given was that the special version was just going to be sung in a TV show and apparently there were no plans to release or sing this new version in the future.
