Calling all 48G fans – Kokoro no Placard: Mega Collaboration Video is open for submission!

  August 6, 2014

First of all, if you haven’t seen the recently uploaded Staff version of Kokoro no Placard, do that before doing anything else!

OK, so now you should have a rough idea of what a “Placard” is in general.

Basically, the Japanese definition of “placard” is a medium to large sized sign that are largely used during political demonstrations ( our South East Asian readers should be familiar with these *wink* ) or other crowd events to convey the message that they want to bring across to the masses.

AKB48’s newest center Watanabe Mayu and 48 General Manager Takahashi Minami’s recent usage of placard is probably a good example:

David Liao, one of our friends at new school kaidan and the instigator of last year’s super successful International Version of Koisuru Fortune Cookie that made it to the AKB48 Official Youtube Channel, recently reached out to us regarding a joint super mega huge collaboration video project of Kokoro no Placard.

Of course, anything that might convey the love from all fans of 48G outside Japan to the girls that we support so much will always get a thumbs up from us!

At the moment, the details of the Kokoro no Placard Mega Collaboration Video Project can be found on New School Kaidan’s post – if you’re interested of being a part of this wonderful project, that’s where you should be going.

A quick summary of the submission details would be:
