Koi Suru Dance with Hanabee to celebrate AKB0048!

As we previously reported, Hanabee Entertainment have acquired the license for the popular anime series AKB0048, which is an anime series based upon one of the most popular Japanese Pop groups AKB48.

To celebrate the announcement of the AKB0048 anime coming down under, Hanabee have decided to make an AKB48 video of their own focusing on the latest hit from the girl group ‘Koi Suru Fortune Cookie’.
