Why Does the Song Shoot Sign Deserve Consideration?

It is time to analyze AKB48’s 47th major single called “Shoot Sign” as it has been two years since the release of that single. Shoot Sign was released on March 15, 2017 and it was the last single for Haruna Kojima who will turn 31 years old in April!

What is the Song Shoot Sign About?

As far as what the song Shoot Sign is about the song addresses the fact that we have only one life and that we should do everything seriously. This is the first part of the song but AKB48 is a high energy pop music group and songs with themes of struggle are odd for them. Lyrically, the song is about a person that is confused and does not really realize what true love really is. They have had one failed romance after another but they are thinking that if they sit around waiting for their heart to get broken, will that be a beautiful ending? Heartbreak is always painful but it does unfortunately happen. She believes that love was always something that had to be taken. But this may be true that love can only be felt by the people in the relationship. The person described in the song is willing to take a chance to find love and they see love as some sort of pride. Love is a sort of risk that often times does not work out for many people but nonetheless, Shoot Sign is a decent song from Japan’s most popular girl group.

What Happens in the Music Video for the Song Shoot Sign?

What happens in the video for the song Shoot Sign? The video’s setting is in a wrestling ring where Haruna Kojima and Sakura Miyawaki engage in a wrestling match as several other girls including Mayu Watanabe and Sayaka Yamamoto are watching. Eventually the other members are seen getting into the ring and doing some sort of dance. Eventually, Haruna Kojima is pinned and loses the match but for AKB48 fans, the song Shoot Sign should be an entertaining listen.
