Here with their 20th release, NMB48 get up to the bar with their first offering sans Yamamoto Sayaka. “Tokonoma seiza musume (床の間正座娘)” puts the girls under laser lights for a eurobeat influenced arrangement complete with an infectious line dance. The “Uh, Ha!” chants seem tailor-made for fan participation, and I dare you to watch the PV without letting an utterance escape your lips. Sets are draped above with loosely hanging, colorful fabrics that add more color to the already colorful production at the cost of some claustrophobia. To be sure, “Tokonoma seiza musume” is a spectacular production that gives the eye more to look at than it can possibly process. “Tokonoma seiza musume”, the 20th single of NMB48, sits itself down in record stores on February 20, 2019.
