Popular idol group AKB48 recently revealed the music video and the new visual for their 31st single "Sayonara Crawl" (to be released on May 22).

The title track has already been performed at the live concert on the 28th, and Watanabe Mayu, Shimazaki Haruka, Oshima Yuko, and Itano Tomomi serve as center positions.

Both music video and cover jackets were taken by photographer/film director Ninagawa Mika, and the filming was held in Okinawa. Reportedly, the choreography adopted some swimming and synchronized swimming moves, and the dance scenes which the 32 Senbatsu members show in swimsuits decorated with flowers, against the blue sea, are really overwhelming.

One of the themes for the MV is said to be "sisters." The director Ninagawa explained, "I was planning to make a buoyant summer PV which will go down in history. I aimed it to be simply cute, enjoyable to watch, and fun for the members." The making of the music video in Okinawa will be included in the DVD for Type-A and Type-K.

It was also revealed that the special footage for each type will be the flip book based on AKB48 songs, hand-drawn by comedian Tekken. For Type-A, it will be "So long!", "Yume no Kawa" for Type-K, and "First Rabbit" for Type-B. According to a person concerned, the flip books are all tear-jerking.
