Fans to vote for an AKB48 song to be made into a PV.
Akimoto Yasushi expressed his desire, in this Google+ post, about producing a PV for an AKB48 song that does not currently have one. Whilst he had his own preferences, others wanted different songs to receive a music video. Therefore, he has decided to put it to a fan vote.
A voting card will be included within copies of AKB48's forthcoming album, [1830m] to vote for which song you want a PV produced for. Songs from sister group and sub-groups will be excluded from the vote. The voting period will be open from 15th August until 20th September. A PV will then be produced for the winning song, which will be included within the AKB48 single to be released in December.
Update: It has now been announced that this will be called AKB48 [Music Video Request 2012].
