And with that, we have come to the end of 2012 Request Hour!
With the exclusion of unit songs, we have come to see a lot of stage songs making returns with Team K’s songs from various stages occupying most of it while Team A & B took about half of the stage appearances. For the top, while many would have predict that the million breakers for 2100 will seal the no.1 spot but it is still claimed by last year’s no.1 Heavy Rotation. Personally, I would given my vote for that as well.
Another surprised packed day too, with NMB’s 2 singles appearing today along with SKE Team KII’s new stage song “Omatase Set List”. The usual top songs that have appeared in the final RH days were there though they have slightly dipped in rankings.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the first 2 days of RH 2012 screening were missed as GV canceled it, but so glad for me to make it at the final 2 days, great performances, even superb MC by the members as it contains the whackiest MC I have seen in concerts for a long while.
Right after the end of the ranking, a video clip was played, and it was very very surprised packed.
Have you ever wondered will the AKB48 members get to play instruments for a song LIVE? Well, apparently, Aki-P has thought of this and had the members practiced with various instruments for a upcoming single. The end product? “Give Me Five”. And we were treated to the sight of the girls getting to befriend their respective instruments at the start.
We have Takamina on the lead guitar, with the 2nd guitar by Acchan, Yuko on the bass, Yukirin on the drums. Yes, Yukirin ON the drums. Nyannyan and Mayuyu on the keyboard, Yuihan and Rena on the trumpets. Trombone, we have Miichan and Sashi, percussion by Mariko, Tomochin and Jurina. Of course not forgetting Akicha, Kitarie, Sae, Chiyuu and Sayanee on the chorus!
Clearly, this is a very very pleasant surprise for everyone in the TDC Hall, cinemas all over Japan, HK, Taiwan, Thailand and here in GV Vivo! And of they went, performing “Get Me Five” for the first time to fans band version! Well, don’t expect them to really do what other specialized bands can do, but they did a pretty good job out of it despite their short time given to practice among the hectic schedules they have normally.
For the very first concert of the year, pretty well done and now up next is their March concert in Saitama Super Arena from 23-25 March!
