French Kiss 2nd Single [If] updates

     Some updates about French Kiss's new Single [If] that will be releasing on 19 January 2011. As previously mentioned, the song will be used as the theme song for the Anime OVA [Kyo, Koi wo Hajimemasu]. As with their Debut Single Zutto Mae Kara, If will include a special Drama Clip featuring the 3 members of French Kiss, as well as a new Digital Manga of Kyo, Koi wo Hajimemasu featuring the members voice acting parts of the manga. If will have a total of 3 Types: Type A, Type B and Type C.

     As with Zutto Mae Kara, there will be a total of 4 different songs in all the versions of If, 3 of them being new. The A-Side song If will be on all versions of the Single. The coupling song for Type A is Mae wo Muiteru Kimi (前を向いてる君). All members of French Kiss will be singing it. For Type B that coupling song is Chinmoku (沈黙), a solo ballad song sung by Kashiwagi Yuki. And lastly Type C has Kuchi Utsushi no Chocolate (口移しのチョコレート). From Team B 4th Stage [Idol no Yoake], the song was originally sang by Kashiwagi Yuki, Hirajima Natsumi and Oota Aika, with Kashiwagi leading. In this version Kashiwagi will take her own lines, however it is unknown who will take Hirajima's or Oota's lines.

      Type A and Type B are CD + DVD, while Type C is a CD only version. Type A will include the Drama Clip and it's Making Of (only in First Press), while Type B will have the Digital Comic and it's Making Of too (only in First Press).

     The drama is set at the same school as the manga, one year before. Yuki is a member of the book club, who always has girls swarming around her. This is because Yuki is in a long-distance relationship with an older boyfriend, and is always giving her classmates good love advice. She was called the "Love Captain". Aki, a strong member of the archery club, and Asuka, honors student from the student council, go to this Love Captain for advice. Yuki has a certain secret, but she decides to help the girls, and from there their love stories begin...
