AKB48 launches their official YouTube channel15 September, 2010 by Chad
Both Kodansha and Sony have been pretty stubborn about AKB48 videos on YouTube. Thankfully, after years of wait, AKB48 launched their own official YouTube channel last Wednesday.
So far, only the King Records (AKB48’s current label) music videos have been uploaded. However, the management promises that there will be exclusive video content coming to the site soon. I’ve linked up videos to some of my favorite singles from King Records, Iiwake Maybe, Kimi no Koto ga Suki Dakara and Junen Zakura, which were appropriately voted 1st, 2nd and 3rd during last year’s Set List Top 100.
Iiwake Maybe, featuring their most iconic costume to date:

The catchy, 10nen Zakura:
