AKB 2nd Album [Kamikyoku Tachi]


Official name has been released and the album will be titled [Kamikyoku Tachi] (神曲たち) which translates to [Godly Tracks]. However wotas call "kamioshi" to their top favourite member (for example, my "kamioshi" is Amina), so based on that the title could be [Your most favorite songs]. The two new tracks are titled Jibun Rashisa (individuality) and Kimi to Niji to Taiyou to (with you, the rainbow and the sun). Jibun Rashisa is a Ono Erena and Watanabe Mayu duet and has been used with the CM for Try-gakuin

I thought that they would follow the 1st Album and just change the numbers but that proved to be wrong. Nevertheless it still is a good title, unique. The CD track list is disappointing. They shouldn't have added Enkyori Poster and Choose Me! as I felt that was just an extra for the YJ vs. PB thing. And what's with all the B-sides? And damn no stage songs. Except Shonichi but that was in a B-side. I totally wanted some stage songs in the album.

For the DVD, the making ofs will not be included in the album. However the track list still hasn't been finalised yet so they could still put it back in.

I'm new to the AKB48 scene do I've been wondering, what does B-sides mean? Is it the type of song?

B-sides aren't AKB exclusive lol.

To put it short, they are the songs in the single which aren't the main feature.

Ah I see thanks!
Didn't know it was a universal thing either lol
It's actually the first time I've heard of that term.
