JKT48 New Single “River” Announced Today

Today JKT48 announced their new single “River” in front of the official fans club members that were lucky and edgy enough to win the special quiz they held last night.

From Twitter reports by some fans, there will be 2 versions of the single sold

1. The Theater Version that will consist of 3 songs (River, Mirai no Kajitsu and Sakura no Shiori) along with an individual handshake ticket and one from a deck of playing card. This version will be sold at 40.000 IDR (Around 4 USD)

2. The Regular Version that will consist of 4 songs (River, Mirai no Kajitsu, Sakura no Shiori and Kimi ni Au Tabi Koi wo Suru) along with a special DVD (River PV, Behind The Scene, Mirai no Kajitsu special) and Special Photo with Digital Card for Mobile Contents (Battle Card). This version will be sold at 80.000 IDR (Around 8 USD)

These information were taken from various Tweets from OFC members that attended the show that started around 20 minutes ago. Thus this information could be changed accordingly to what the officials announced via their official website.

      so the rumor says that all of the menba will sing sakura no shiori? whoa man, i’ve already gotten my goosebumps when i’m imagining all of the menba perform it beautifuly and peacefuly in a live performance. I hope there wouldn’t be any unecessary chants yelled by some zombies that will ruin its harmony

    MOST IMPRESSIVE!!….UNBELIEVABLE!!… A new song! It’s a must buy!!! But, hey wait a minute!! There was no press conference or commercial on TV about this single like they did before. Or was there? Anyway, hell with that. I have to go the Disctarra.NOW!! (If it’s sold out already, I’ll be damned as hell).

      NOW?! Hold your horses, mate. They’ll only sell the RIVER Theater version at JKT48 theater tomorrow (Saturday, 11th May). The regular version sales date will follow soon. No RIVER single (Regular or Theater) is on sale today (Friday, 10th May) at Disctarra or any other music stores.

    JOT really know how to get more money from JKT48 fans, :-P they put handshakes ticket and special photos in two different versions. Now fans have to buy both versions if they want to get a ticket handskake and special photo. hahaha… nice idea JOT. :mrgreen:

      Are you already amazed by JKT48 River single that is released in “just” two editions??
      Well, JKT48 sister groups in Japan release even more than “just” two editions of a single.

      For example, the latest (31st) AKB48 single titled Sayonara Crawl. That single is being released in:

      - 3 generally distributed editions of Types A, K, B.
      - 3 LIMITED Editions of Types A, K, and B.
      - Theater Edition which is sold at the AKB48 Theater.

      In total: 7 editions/versions.

      48 Group super wotas collect all those editions (not mentioning the number of CDs they buy in order to vote for their Oshimen in upcoming Senbatsu Sousenkyo).

      • Buddy, Reply

        wow maybe later JOT (JKT48 management) will do the same after JKT48 have team J, team K, and team T.

        • Shiba-sama, Reply

          Yes, it’s likely.
          Aside from the bonus item, the notable difference (in each type of future JKT48 single after both team KIII/KIV and team T/TII have been formed), would be the third (cover) coupling song.

      if you want to complete your card colletion you have to buy 54 CD (if they also put 2 joker card inside) maybe more if you get the same card (you can exchange it with other fans).

      …whooaaa …Noella is Team J …??? …since when …??? …or it’s just miss printed by JOT …??? …well, this is getting interesting isn’t it … :-D

    • indr@, Reply

      Wow, Noella is Team J and get the Jack card (the 4th card on the deck)

    To Shiba-sama, your comment about comparing JKT latest single is such irrelevant.

    1. JKT is still just have one regular team, team J, so JKT didn’t need to make three edition like AKB, type A, K, B.
    2. The limited edition is just used for senbatsu sosenkyo that contain vote ticket, and JKT not yet use those vote system to establish senbatsu member, so JOT (JKT48 Operational Team) didn’t need to establish limited editions.

    Every decision of professional people have to have clear intention. The decision that appear have to have contex that related to something and make it has function, not just a thing that appear as a single entity.

      No, I didn’t have any intention to compare JKT48 and AKB48 single releases at all. I just wanted to say that if people are already amazed by JKT48 two editions of a single, what will he feel then when JKT48 release even more than two editions of a single someday in the future (just like their sister group in Japan)?? Will people feel super duper amazed??

      Gonjack: “JKT is still just have one regular team, team J, so JKT didn’t need to make three edition like AKB, type A, K, B.”
      Shiba-sama: No shit, Sherlock.

      Gonjack: “The limited edition is just used for senbatsu sosenkyo that contain vote ticket, and JKT not yet use those vote system to establish senbatsu member, so JOT (JKT48 Operational Team) didn’t need to establish limited editions.”
      Shiba-sama: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Get your fact straight, Sherlock!!! ALL Editions of Sayonara Crawl single contain a voting card!!
      The difference between the Regular Edition and the Limited Edition of each type (A, K, B) is:
      The Regular edition comes with a photo. The Limited edition comes with a handshake ticket and a SPECIAL CD Jacket Cover.

      Please, don’t mislead the public here.
