    • the dance unit song is okay but Jurina, Sayaka, and Nana look SO good
      the vocal unit song is good too, STU48’s is a drastic improvement and hope to see this quality when they debut in Jan
      Team 8…choices…they were doing so good musically, guess having a Yui center has done fucked up Team 8 songs

        Is Nana the girl who is the third center besides Jurina and Sayaka?

        • no she’s the one on the left at :53 but the third center is Saito Makiko of SKE i think

      Yaban na Kyuuai seems quite Unique. Sayaka looks good :)

      I like the visual of Hohoemi no Toki

      The idea of Houtei Sokudo to Yuuetsukan is nice but some part are moving too much/fast :o (Or maybe it’s because I’m tired?)

      Ikiru Koto ni Nekkyou wo! seems pretty meh. And AKB like.
