That venue is also where SNH48, her former group, debuted (they still didn't have their exclusive theater at the time). :)

^ Note the references to Kiki's Delivery Service - her English name is Kiki. Her dress could also be a subtle reference to Sailor Moon. :)

That MV, just released this morning:


^ It looks more like an alien planet from a Frank Herbert novel than the Silk Road, the meaning of the song's title. lol
The official HP for an upcoming solo EP of the center girl in the MV, which title number (which Chinese title means "oasis") is a spin-off single from that song, opened today:

The MV of that title number, released today:

A collection of all the major past singles by SNH48/SNHG from their debuting one to their current latest, compiled by a Japanese fan & uploaded yesterday:


^ The overall increasing sophistication & complexity of their music over the years are evident, especially after their breaking up w/ or independence from AKB48/AKBG.

The SNHG has always been known for their numerous various big & small fan voting events/activities around the country throughout the year, & now they even invite fans to vote for the candidate venues of their next upcoming annual major concert: lol

SNH48 GROUP 第九届年度金曲大赏REQUEST TIME BEST50

^ The choice is between a large Olympic stadium in a province nearby the provincial-level home city of SNH48 & a large theater in that city.
