It was announced at a concert recently that AKB48’s newest sister group, NMB48, will be releasing their debut single. The single is entitled Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo and will be released on July 20th.
I was pretty much expecting their debut to be pretty soon. Since they’ve done 2 stages already and they just recently started performing their first original song Seishun no Rap. Which is being used as the B-side for this single.
I’m actually looking forward to see NMB48’s debut. I’m really excited to see what kind of a feel they will have compared to the other 48 groups. The song is said to be hard and danceable, which I’m excited for. I would love a song similar to Banzai Venus. But the song is also supposed to be about Japanese beauty and have kabuki elements in the dance. That makes me think that they song will have an enka feel to it. So, maybe a song like Odoru 11’s Shiawase Kyouryuu Ondo or Kanjani8’s Naniwa Iroha Bushi. I would actually kind of hate an enka inspired song. So, I really hope they don’t go that route.
I’m also really looking forward to their debut because of Yamada Nana. She used to be an H!P member and she’s Nakayama Yuma’s older sister. Talk about fandoms colliding. So, she’s really interesting indeed.
