Morning Musume '17 will release their new single on the 8th of March, which is only in a few weeks and they are releasing more information about it so fast now! This single will be released in 5 versions and here are the covers!
Limited A Limited A is obviously for BRAND NEW MORNING and what the hell XD. Okay I see what they are going for with this militairy theme, but this is just a weird cover. I do like seeing Ogata in front though and the 17 looks really really awsome. Not a big fan though.
Limited B This is quite a nice cover. Jealousy Jealousy has white outfits, so this white cover looks really nice. Although it makes me wonder if these are leftover shots from Oh My Wish, as Haachin, Miki and Maria look the same. Same hairstyle and everything. Kaede is giving us the death stare. It's quite a nice cover, I do like it, but gosh someone else should be doing their hair and choosing the solo shots.
Regular A Yes, this is a nice cover. I am all for them posing in the MV place. I…

The top picture are the new outfitss for Jealousy Jealousy. They seem white outfits, with big shirt like tops and cure white skirts. Sadly the pciture isn't to clear, but they look really pretty. 
Fukumura Mizuki & Ikuta Erina Both leader and sup-leader look really pretty. I do think Mizuki looks a bit weird, her facial expression is as if she was told to looks a bit shocked. Eripon looks really really cool. I love her longer hair and gosh does her waist look thin. 
Iikubo Haruna & Ishida Ayumi Harunan's long hair looks really good on an outfits like this and Ayumi with a curly ponytail is my weakness. She rocks this hairstyle so much and that cheeky smile. 
Kudo Haruka & Oda Sakura These two, their combination, it's another weakness of mine. Haruka does look a bit weird and…
