AKB48 has just released a PV or a video for their 32nd single called Koisuru Fortune Cookie. It is scheduled to be released on August 21 which is now less than 2 weeks away. The center for this single is taken by Rino Sashihara of HKT48. Koisuru Fortune Cookie is the single that comes after Sayonara Crawl which sold a record 1,450,881 copies on its first day of release. The PV for Koisuru Fortune Cookie features the AKB48 members and other people dancing and having a great time. They are dressed in very colorful uniforms. The song was also done by Jakarta based idol group JKT48.
Author’s note: we are now in 2016 and many changes have happened. One of the changes is that Aki Takajo is no longer a member of JKT48. Her contract was cancelled following the big AKB48 Group Shuffle in February 2014. She announced in December 2015 that she intends to graduate from AKB48. Nakagawa Haruka is still with the group though.
The song itself is a very fun song to listen to even if you do not understand Japanese. It was in January 2013 that AKB48 made very big news when member Yuko Oshima was diagnosed with the flu. But she has since recovered and AKB48 is really continuing to rock and make a name for themselves. I really hope that they can get noticed outside of Japan because they are really good!! Yuko was featured in the Japanese magazine Friday in 2012 when she posed in a black bikini or a really stunning black dress. Good job Yuko!! The single is sometimes spelled Koi Suru Fortune Cookie.
