NMB48 unveils Dance-shot PV of upcoming 12th Single ‘Durian Shounen’

It’s summer, the time of the year for idols to party and bask in the summer’s warmth in casual clothes, yukata and swimsuits. For the fans of the 48 Groups, we can look forward to Durian Shonen, one of 48 Groups‘ typical bikini PVs set at the beach by NMB48 due for a 15 July 2015 release.

An excerpt of the dance shot PV, up to its first chorus, was uploaded onto NMB48‘s official YouTube channel on 9th June. The dance scenes depict the girls party-dancing in front of a pool at an oriental-style tropical resort, with Ririka Suto featured as the centre girl.
