SKE48 makes surprise announcement about new single, "Okie Dokie"!
During their handshake and mini-live event in Nagoya on September 17th for their most recent single "Pareo wa Emerald", SKE48 made a surprise announcement about a new single!
The manager of their theater stated, "The title is 'Okie Dokie'... and the release date is November 9th..." which sent the entire audience into an uproar. Member Matsui Rena jokingly commented, "It's a long-awaited announcement, but he said it too plainly, didn't he?" Team S member Matsui Jurina also jumped in on the fun, rousing the excitement of the 6,500 fans present at the event by saying, "You ask, 'Do you wanna hear the title~!?' and 'Do you wanna know the release date~!?'"
The single will be released in three different editions: Type A (CD+DVD), Type B (CD+DVD), and Type C (CD+DVD). Little other information about the single has been revealed so far.
Between their live performances, five SKE48 members - Kuwabara Mizuki, Matsui Jurina, Sato Mieko, Wakabayashi Tomoka, and Takeuchi Mai - will represent the group in AKB48's upcoming rock-paper-scissors tournament, which will be held on September 20th. "I used to think, 'It'd be nice if I were put into senbatsu,' but since I have a lot of people cheering for me, my fighting spirit's been ignited!" said Matsui Jurina eagerly about the event.
September is a month packed full of activities for the SKE48 members, including the graduation of Matsushita Yui. "I'm so happy that have prepared a place to give my speech to everyone. Until my last day, I'll do my best the SKE48 way," she said to the crowd, expressing her gratitude to her fans. Their theater manager added, "I'd like to hold some kind of send-off party for Yui-chan."
