AKB48’s 16th and latest single Ponytail to Shushu (ポニーテールとシュシュ). This video features the girls sporting ponytails whilst dancing on a beach。What a wonderful view is all the girls are wearing only colourful bikini and sexy pants. Although it is not so hard for us to see Japanese young ladies in bikini photoshoot (MV/pictorials), but fans still so pleasure to watch again AKB48's young teen in bikini on the beach. Plenty of bikinis, sunshine and beach, the MV was filmed in Guam.
Contrary to their conservative neighbours, it’s pretty common for mainstream Japanese idols to don in bikinis for MV/pictorials beside the fact that most of them are doing so at teen age. It’s almost a cultural thing;
As stated on Oricon, the last female group to break the half million sales record was Morning Musume with 515,000 copies of their Renai Revolution 21 「恋愛レボリューション21」 back in 2000 . The first female artist to break the half a million record was Hikaru Utada with 784,000 copies of Can You Keep A Secret?.
