My Favorite Ending Videos from AKB's First Video Game, AKB 1/48 Idol to Koi Shitara

AKB48's first ever video game, AKB 1/48 Idol to Koi Shitara, for the PSP, was released just a few days ago, and although I'm not going to talk about the game itself, I just loved the in-game videos! So if you wanna talk about them and don't mind reading spoilers, or you wanna look at a few nice pics, here you go!

Each of the 48 members of AKB has 3 ending videos each, one where they confess their love, another where they react after their love is accepted, and one where they react after their love is rejected. I loved how varied and nicely thought out the scenes were.

Apparently, I loved the rejection-reactions most, not that I want the girls to be rejected, but the reactions were just more enjoyable to watch. It was more interesting and had more depth! I wanted to shout, "Sayaka, don't run away from me!"

I think my favorite pout is from Reinyan!

Kojiharu, AKB's queen of pouting

Awkward Yuttan

Crushed Natsumi

Nakayan was ridiculous with the puppets... but bitter Nakayan was absolutely adorable!

Of course, there were a lot of what the heck moments.

Umechan... Tokyo Tower... OH MY GOSH!!!

Of course, Yuko with the paparazzi and Mayuyu's rejection were what the heck moments, but nothing beats Acchan's!

Seriously, I was... what the heck?! You gotta watch it yourself!

Sakippe on piano is a definite must watch, but her partner Micha was absolutely beautiful!


Mariko in a playful and slightly naughty scene.

Oh, and this isn't Lovetan's rejection scene...

...This is!

Nacchi, nervous in her confession scene... and her rejection scene looks like something she would do in real life!

Myao, rambling to get the words out.

 Miichan's was one of the funniest! After arguing with herself about how idols shouldn't fall in love, after she gets rejected, she basically says, "But I'm AKB!" 

Tomochin's was the funniest. After she and the meal that she made was rejected, she takes a bite on one of her food items, and she says, "Tastes terrible!" with a smile. This is especially funny considering how, thanks to AKBingo, she is considered the tasteless girl in AKB, and that no matter how bad food tastes to the other girls, she still ends up liking it, so for her to say it tastes terrible... haha!

I thought the one with Kitarie was the worst. Why? Because there was hardly any Kitarie in them! When I watch a video with Kitarie, I want to see a lot of Kitarie! Her fans must be disappointed. And I was hoping Moeno would give the finger on her rejection video.

In terms of totality of the three video set, my third favorite set would be the one with Suuchan. All three of the confession, acceptance and rejection were interesting and very different. This is from the acceptance.

My second favorite set is the one with Ayarin. When she said those three magical words, I got goosebumps.

My favorite set is the one with Sasshi. Her execution is what made it a winner.

Sasshi, get up from there! You don't need to kneel before me!

Sasshi's unbelief that her love was accepted.

And her rejection video was just... wow.

The Idol to Koi Shitara videos was great work for AKB! Watch them if you have the chance!
