Morning Musume’s 47th single, currently untitled, has been announced by a blog post from Reina.
Reina mentionned in her blog post that they had the shooting for the jacket of the single today (47枚目のジャケ写), which should be enough proof that the preparation for the single is starting off well and that everything is already planned.
I have to say that I’m pretty impressed with how fast Momusu releases are being lately since there is no more than 2 months difference between each single’s release, which means a lot more work for the members, but I can’t help but think that they want to release as many singles as possible before Ai-chan’s graduation.
Even though we don’t know anything about the single yet, mostly if it will be Ai-chan’s last single or not, but if they keep up with the 2 months schedule for each single, this could not be the last, although in my opinion, this could pretty much be the last single for Ai-chan since it will take time to prepare for it and their autumn concert tour (although anything can happen)…
We have no title, release date or official information about the single, but it seems for me like a great opportunity for the 9ki members since they will have been present for 3 singles already, which is nice exposure since I expected the 47th single to be the first of the 10th generation, and I’m glad it’s not the case since it gives them a little more time to shine and be known by the fans.
Hopefully more details will be out soon, mostly the release date to know if it will be or not Ai-chan’s latest single, and what kind of theme or special touch it will have.
