AKB48-Chance no Junban PV preview

With less than a month until the release date of AKB48’s 19th single, Chance no Junban, morning news shows are starting to preview the PV.


The PV is significantly toned down compared to the weirdness of Beginner, and the heavy fanserice of Heavy Rotation and Ponytail to Shuuhu. The PV is also a lot simpler than I was expecting. A majority of the PV is focusing on the dance scenes, mixed with close-ups. Which is a completely boring formula. The PV also features the Janken competition, and shows Uchida Mayumi’s nerves beforehand. So, it looks like the PV will focus on Mayumi’s road to becoming the center girl of this single/PV. I can’t say it’s a theme I am extremely excited over, but I’m sure Mayumi was thrilled about it. To only be a Theater Girl and then thrown into the center is quite a feat. But I have to say the scenes with her riding the horse are completely random and stupid. But at least it’s a real horse. Not the fake stuffed horses from S/mileage’s Asu wa Date na no ni, Imasugu Koe ga Kikitai.
