Regular editions can be found at aforementioned site.

I think under-performing sales for the 27th Single - "Gingham Check" may have factored into AKS/KingRecords going for a Type C  - a first for AKB48 single.

AKB48 28th single's title : Kakkoii

Source : http://tower.jp/article/news/2012/08/24/n07

About the title, don't you guys think that this is gonna be different from the usual October singles since RIVER?
I hope they maintain the same dark theme of an October single.

I hope it keeps up the theme. I'd pay good money for another single in the same vein as Beginner. Bring on the previews!

AKB48 28th Single [Kakkoii] Announced

Today, at the end of the first day of AKB48 in TOKYO DOME ~1830m of Dreams~, the live that the group has long desired, it was announced that AKB48 will be releasing their next single on October 31st, 2012.

http://tower.jp/article/news/2012/08/24/n07

Following Gingham Check, this will be AKB48's 28th single. The new single, titled [Kakkoii] (meaning "Cool"), will be of the same style and image of past singles like RIVER, Beginner, and Kaze wa Fuiteiru, and at the same time pushing the frontiers of AKB's music.

The single will come in Type A, Type B and Type C, all three sharing the same title track and a common coupling song, and one more song that will be different for each type. Including off-vocal versions, each type will have 6 tracks, and a DVD included that will contain music videos for the 3 songs and a bonus video.

As usual, each copy of the first press limited edition will come with 1 of 2 handshake event tickets, and the regular edition will come with a random photo. In addition, both limited and regular additions will come with a voting ticket for Request Hour Set List Best 100 2013 for a limited time period.

Didn't they realize that they dug their own grave by making the album and 27th single have time periods to pre-order(theater edition) too close?

It looks like they're trying to spread the popular members across the groups, instead of having them packed into A/K primarily. It really won't affect senbatsu selection or anything like that, most likely. We could see the loanees (Anna with AKB, Yui with NMB, etc) in the singles, though, which would be boss.

Wait, KazeFui was supposed to be a cool song pushing the frontiers of AKB's music? I didn't really pick up on that  :lol:

Hoping for Beginner Pt 2.  :thumbup

AKB48 - 28th Single.  Title: Kakkoii.   Release Date:    Oct 31, 2012


I dont think the title of the single is actually 'Kakkoii'. It is just implying that the singe will have a "Kakkoii" image... Title is yet Undecided...

^I edited my 1st post because RenX and kieyuku posted that the title will be ''Kakkoii.''  Since we don't have an official post by AKS and/or King Records, and noting your input, I'll leave it blank for now.

Sae and Akicha are out (which is expected given their transfers by the end of the year), but surprisingly Kasai is also out  :cry:

That's such b/s. No Umechan either. Aki-P always says the senbatsu is selected based on the image of the single, but I think I even saw Sakura-chan in there for this performance. Stupid unfair popularity contest.


Secondly, auto-tune and male dancers?! Why do they do the dance break and not AKB48? It doesn't even make sense.
The song sucks, but all the members look super epic  :inlove: So yeah, won't buy but will collect pics.  :lol:

Why do you say these awful, untrue things? Let's buy all the versions! I knew it was gonna be good, after seeing the outfits, and the Jurina/Yuko co-center.

I am wondering if, based on the double Team K center and the "competition" between the potential new centers if we're looking at 3 versions.

Team A ver - Mayu/Takamina (possibly - could be another new Team A member, but not sure who)
Team K ver - Jurina/Yuko
Team B ver - Paruru/Yukirin

Each single would have a different version perhaps.
