You’ll probably see a lot of unrecognisable faces in AKB48’s first ever released single titled 桜の花びらたち (Sakura no hanabira tachi), loosely translated “Cherry Blossom Petals”. That’s if you can even recognise the current members. Many of those in the video unfortunately left the group within the first 3 years when the group was going through a rough time. The few first-generation members remaining really deserve a lot of respect.
This is a great song. Well chosen, fans.
