It was announced recently that SDN48 will be releasing their 4th single. The single is currently untitled and will be released on December 28th. This is also most likely SDN48’s final single, since their disbandment is on April 1st.
Now, when SND48’s disbandment was announced I didn’t blog about it at all. Because honestly, I don’t really care all that much. Mostly because I’m hardly a huge SDN48 fan. The only SND48 songs I really like are GAGAGA and Awajishima no Tamanegi. It is a little sad that they are disbanding before they really had a chance to succeed.
And to tell you the truth I wasn’t really expecting SDN48 to release another single. I understand they probably want to give the fans a proper goodbye while still squeezing as much money from them as possible. But at the same time, I also feel like why bother? They are obviously disbanding them because they are doing as well as they expected. So, why even bother giving them a final single. Obviously the agency has zero faith in them. If I was in SDN48 I would feel so hurt that they are not only disbanding my group, but also squeezing one more single out of us.
But the main reason I don’t see the point in this new single, is because I don’t actually believe that SDN48 is disbanding at all. I mean, we all know that Aki-P loves to mess with the fans. And them disbanding on April Fool’s Day just seems too perfect to me. It seems like this 4th single is just testing how much the fans will support SDN48. Basically saying if you want SDN48 to continue on, you should support them as if every single was their final one. Or something along those lines. I just refuse to believe their disbandment is legit. If is is legit, it just doesn’t make sense.
