AKB48 sub-group Not Yet announced they are releasing their 3rd single. The single is entitled Pera Pera Perao and will be released on November 16th. A short PV preview for the single has also been released.
The preview is only about 50 seconds long so it’s hard to really get a feel for the song, since we only hear the chorus. But when I can hear of it sounds absolutely adorable. What is so interesting about Not Yet is each single their sound completely changes. The single is a the typical type of idol songs that I absolutely love. Yeah, it’s a tad generic but it’s fun and upbeat, and that’s all that really matters.
Because of the way they preview is we only get to see 20 seconds of the PV. The PV has a restaurant/waitress theme, and features the girls in a 50’s styled dinner wearing adorable waitress uniforms. What I like about the PV is that the set is very vibrant and interesting. The PV also shows Not Yet standing next to little boys, which is apparently supposed to be following the lyrics of the song. But since I can’t understand them, that meaning is lost on me. XD Another interesting aspect of this is that they have random backup dancers in the PV. Which isn’t really something that AKB48 or their sub-groups really do. I think it adds a nice element to the PV and makes them standout more as a sub-group.
