On September 27, it was announced that AKB48 member Watanabe Mayu is releasing a new single titled “Hikaru Monotachi” on November 21.
Only four months after her previous single “Otona Jelly Beans“, Watanabe is already ready to release her third solo single. The new single is titled “Hikaru Monotachi” and is said to be an up-tempo electronic track.
Watanabe commented, “I’m very happy that I can already release my third single so soon after ‘Otona Jelly Beans’. This new song will be very different from my previous two singles, I had a very fresh feeling during the recording.”
The coupling track for this upcoming single will be “Sayonara no Hashi“, which is the theme song for the upcoming anime movie ‘Nerawareta Gakuen‘ (release: November 10), where the protagonist is being voiced by Watanabe as well.
Those who buy one of the three different first press limited editions will also get a DVD that includes bonus footage, which includes Watanabe sporting different school uniforms from all 47 prefectures of Japan. She commented about this unprecedented project, “It’s so much fun wearing all those cute uniforms from all over the country. You all should certainly look forward to this.”
