It was revealed on Fuji TV's late-night show "AKB Eizou Center" that AKB48's 32nd single , in which HKT48 member Sashihara Rino will take the center position, will be titled "Koisuru Fortune Cookie." 


The announcement was made by Sashihara herself, as she serves as the MC of the show. 


Apart from the title, a music video behind-the scenes clip was also revealed on the show, as well as on the group's official YouTube channel.  The filming of the MV was held on June 22nd, in Fukuoka, and together with 3,000 extras, AKB48 members danced to the song. Papaya Suzuki was in charge of choreography.


Reportedly, one of the reasons why the MV was shot in Fukuoka was that it was the hometown of member Shinoda Mariko, who will be graduating from the group next month.


In the making-of video, some members make a comment regarding the title track and its MV. "It makes you feel like telling your fortunes." (Watanabe Mayu), "It's a song you can liven up with everyone, and is also an enjoyable song, as you can copy the choreography with others." (Itano Tomomi), "It's somehow nostalgic. It's like a large-scale disco." (Takahashi Minami).


AKB48's 32nd single "Koisuru Fortune Cookie" is set for release on August 21st.

"It's a song you can liven up with everyone, and is also an enjoyable song, as you can copy the choreography with others." (Itano Tomomi), I'm sure the choreography had to be simple with Sassi in center...............

Yeay for Sasshi and from the video there is a part from the dance that looks like they're doing "kamehameha". I'll enjoy copying that lol

Seems like it would be a very cheerful song like SKE48's oki doki or banzai venus.
It's amazing 3000 people gathering and dace along with them ^^

The sound is upbeat going by the audio recording but it's not going to be like SKE's song, it's ondo, traditional folk music
