I wrote about what was then going to be a new single for girl group AKB48. That 35th single was Mae Shika Mukanee. The single had four different types or editions. These were types, A,B, C and a Theater Edition. The jacket covers for the single were released in February 2014. Mae Shika Mukanee (I Only Look Forward) was released on February 26, 2014. It was the last single to feature Yuko Oshima as a member of AKB48. She was also named as center for that song. I also wrote that Minami Takahashi has been named as center for the group’s 42nd single. The center position has a great deal of importance in the Japanese idol industry. And it is so great that Oshima was able to be center for one last time before she left AKB48. Source of cover photo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mae_shika_Mukanee.

What happened after Mae Shika Mukanee?

 

Following the release and promotion of Mae Shika Mukanee, Yuko Oshima graduated from AKB48 for good in June 2014. Her graduation came after the 37th single Senbatsu Elections on June 8, 2014. The election saw Mayu Watanabe become AKB48’s most popular member. She would be named center for Kokoro no Placard. But before that, AKB48 would release the single called Labrador Retriever. For the music video, several AKB48 members took a trip to Hawaii. One of those members was Anna Iriyama. Iriyama displayed her beautiful bikini body in Hawaii while on vacation! Oshima would also later go on vacation after her graduation. She would go to a nude beach in Ibiza and release her photo book called Nugiyagare! The lyrics for Mae Shika Mukanee were written by producer Yasushi Akimoto.
