Not yet 3rd Single [Perapera Perao]

Not yet's 3rd single has been announced, together with its title and some details.

The title for the single will be Perapera Perao. It will be a song about a guy that is really shy and wants to be able to speak fluently (perapera) with girls.

Some promo photos have been released and it seems the PV will be of the girls dressed as cafe waitresses and dancing with microphone stands, รก la Heavy Rotation. From the photos it also looks like they are going for a retro theme.

With a title like Perapera Perao, expect something really catchy. I think it's a shame they decided to go for the microphone stands though, as it means their dances will be nowhere as energetic as Shuumatsu Not Yet or Naminori Kakigoori. The outfits also look kind of dowdy and it makes them all look older. May I take this chance to mention that I don't know what the heck they're trying to do with Rie's hair. Overall I'm not sure what to think but I do hope it will be a song as catchy as Naminori or as cool as Warau ga Ii.

The single will be released on 16th November 2011, and comes in 3 types as usual, all costing 1600 yen.

The announcement seems to be quite late. With the release date in just slightly over a month, we should see covers revealed very soon.
