AKB48's 22nd Single titled [Flying Get]
The title of AKB48's 22nd Single, the Single which employ the results of the 3rd Senbatsu election, has been given a title. Announced at last night's Theater no Megami performance, the title of the Single is [Flying Get].
But what does it mean? Well "Flying Get" (フライングゲット) is the word for obtaining items such as books, CDs and DVDs before the date they officially go on sale. In simpler words, AKB48 is just asking you to preorder their stuff.
Flying Get will be used as the theme song for the drama Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, or Hanakimi, which starrs Maeda Atsuko and Kashiwagi Yuki.
It really seems that AKB48 wants to follow the same cycle as last year. In that case the 23rd single should be something dark and fierce
A reminder of the member arrangement so far known.
