This is the single that the 16 winners of the Janken Tournament are participating in, and this year's Janken queen, Matsui Jurina is serving as the center.

The cover art was taken by photographer Shintsubo Kenshu and is themed as the "literary AKB". The girls are in sailor uniforms, basking in the soft light. On the back side of the cover jackets, there is an illustration drawn by Kyo Machiko

On the same day, the music video to the title track was also released. The MV which was filmed in Ashikaga-city, Tochigi, is a 22-minute long drama style video. It depicts the girls who spent their youth together, have a reunion 10 years later.
Reportedly, there is an individual setting for each girl. 
For example, Jurina "entered a major advertising agency after graduating college, and she is starting her own business as an advertising planner. Kitahara Rie "joined a theatrical company after graduating high school, and she has become the poster actress of the troupe. She is also playing an active parts in plays, dramas, and movies."...and so on. 
In the end of the drama part, the girls also play their future self after 10 years based on each of their settings.


The MV was directed by Kitamura Ryuhei ("VERSUS", "Azumi"), and he also directed a coupling track "Mosh?Dive" as well.

"Suzukake Nanchara" is set for release on December 11.

It reminds me of Nogizaka's covers, but they look nice ^^

The covers are nice, I like clean covers (perspective of a graphic designer) very professional but somewhat it feels like Nogizaka-ish? I don't know but it is nice to see fresh covers like these. I like the Type A the most. Very fresh. The song too is catchy. I want to see the translated lyrics so I can judge the whole song haha but so far for me it is good.

And yes, Jurina should be in AKB48 or what. I guess people will eventually fed up from over pushed girls... I don't know.

But so far I am getting use to this single.

The company was able to fit the entire title onto the covers.

Too bad the white characters had to block out somewhat the background pictures of the girls.

Aki-p should just put Jurina as a permanent member of AKB since she's been in so many AKB-related activities. At least that'll free up one position in SKE48 for another girl to promote into.

I really like this lineup compared to other Janken singles... Way more non Regular Senbatsu members made it this time... Really happy to see Reinyan, Tano Yuka, Wakanyan and my new favorite KKS Yumoto "The Ninja" Ami.. But most of all im glad that Hilary made it, she needs more exposure cause she is awesome and should have gotten promoted when the other 12th gens got promoted way back in the old Team 4
