I haven't found any covers yet but it will come in 4 versions as is typical for AKB. Cover A and Cover A limited edition and a Cover B and Cover B Limited edition. All will have 3 new songs with their instrumental versions.

From the announcement at King Records limited editions will include handshake event tickets. So you can buy a few and get back in line a few times ^_^ Included random collector pictures will also certainly have people buying multiple copies.

I'll edit and add covers once King Records releases them.

EDIT - AKB48 now has a 18 member subunit band called Baby Blossom Most of the members are brass and percussion but there are the main band members. Only a few have any experience playing and for the past few months have been learning.

Guitar - Maeda Atsuko
Guitar - Takahashi Minami
Bass - Oshima Yuko
Keyboards - Kojima Haruna
Keyboards - Watanabe Mayu
Drums - Kashiwagi Yuki


Limited A


Limited B


Regular A


Regular B

New CM preview for the apartment finding service Apamanshop has appeared on the official apamanshop youtube channel

AKB is eager to help you find a great apartment and gives you a longer audio preview of the new song Love

They also posted a 'making of' video. Love

Baby Blossom live performance of Give me Five

The lack of playing experience obviously shows but after all that is the point of AKB48, to watch them get better over time and cheer them on.

Go Mayuyu!!!!!
