AKB48 Three Part Drama Special [So Long!]

AKB48 will release a three-part drama special entitled [So long!]. Each part will feature one of the three teams and last one hour. The drama will air on three consecutive nights, from the 11-13 February 2013 on NTV. [So long!] is also the title of their forthcoming 30th single, released on the 20th February 2013.

The Team A episode will focus on Watanabe Mayu and Shinoda Mariko in a ballerina high school. The Team K episode is a tale of rivalry between Oshima Yuko and Matsui Jurina. The Team B episode is set in a school, with the theme being around graduation, focussing on Shimazaki Haruka as a student and Kojima Haruna as a teacher.


I'm looking forward to this drama, and it will no doubt help to establish the new teams more amongst fans. It is also interesting how they have chosen one "older" member and one "younger" member of each team sho is seen as a centre there. Note that the older member in each case is the team captain apart from Kojiharu instead of Umechan for Team B.
