Looks like they got another set of outfits for the 6th single~ for kanji, the zips are now a part of a bomber jacket, separate from the dress. I like it better this way lol~
also, i think it's safe to assume, with the exception of oda nana and ozeki rika, and maybe the addition of nagasawa nanako due to her hs sales, plus shida and techi, the kanji members on the front cover of that magazine would be the "lock" senbatsu members in the case of hiragana's joining kanji singles.
OH. MY. GOD. (I just made some non-human voices. x'''''D) I NEED to see it. X''D
Risa must have been awesome in Getsuyoubi and Hiraishin! (The question is that in whose arms did she jump in? Since Mona wasn't there.) I love those emozaka songs.
I'm also very very curious of Yukka's Boku wa iyada!
Ahh, I just want to see them all, the new centers seem to be a perfect fit for the songs they were chosen for!
Techi will be playing the main character Hibiki, a 15 year old eccentric girl who joins her school literature club and writes a "revolutionary novel". A editor called Hanai discovers the novel and tries to track Hibiki down. The Author said after seeing Techi's gaze in the silent majority mv he couldn't imagine anyone else playing the character. The film is set to be released in September of this year.
I'm so so proud of our little otter!! I was really worried about her well being after the last years 365 day disaster lol, but she's really pulled through. I supported her "hiatus" from the group if it meant she would have time to rest and recuperate so i'm glad she's had the opportunity to do that and then been given the chance to do solo work too. She's really something haha. Judging from the MV production of Garasu and Mou Mori I get the feeling everyone (the members included) knew about techi's role, which is why Yuichanzu was given the center opportunity in her steed. I just hope that, since techi will definitely be busy with promoting this movie, they give someone else the "official" center title so she can relax and wont worry so much about not being present for lives.
For those who don't know, Keyaki have this new short tv show called "Keyakizaka46 no appuppuri" aired by FujiTV! It's a 5 minute short (which basically means 2 mins max when you include ads, op's and ending sequences lol). Each episode a member will go to a random place of their choice and try to take a "instagram worthy picture" lol, it's a pretty cute show and it already has 3 episodes. I'll post them all here!
I already read the manga and now I wonder who will be Ryoutarou I'm gonna faint.
I just hope that, since techi will definitely be busy with promoting this movie, they give someone else the "official" center title so she can relax and wont worry so much about not being present for lives.
I hope this too. But I'm afraid that the next single could be the main song for the movie and... I need a new center!!! Can we bets for who will be the next center? X'D We have 20 great options.
Thanks for the links of appuppuri :3
In another news, Oda Nana is in a movie! Wowowowowowo.
Congrats to Nyanya~ (this name for her stuck in my head since the nekomimi Keyakise event, sorry x'D)
And OMG for Habu~~~ So that means she got regular works like Pechan and Risa? Either way, I'm happy for her. I've always wondered why she didn't get modeling jobs since she's tall, thin and has a cute face.
I'll post something I post in other site about Kanji and Hiragana:
Guys, I think I finally realized what's the porpouse of having two keyaki groups, altough this is a hypothesis it makes sense for me and we can expect something in the future from hiragana.
I think at the beginning hiragana was supposed to be one the teams Keyaki along with Kanji (in the same way AKB has its team A, K , B and 4), so it was expected for the 4th single that Hiragana girls will join with the Kanjis in the senbatsu as they were supposed to be just teams of the same group. But something change for the 4th single, the Hiraganas were never mixed with the Kanjis so there was zero chance for them to make it into senbatsu and they were just featured in one B-side of each single (until 2nd gen Hiragan came out).
So I think the porpouse of having these two teams changed and I think it's now to have two different groups that contrast each other, like dark (kanji) and light (hiragana). So I could say that Keyakizaka46 is a W-Group, and with that being said we can expect that for the 7th or 8th single it'll be a Hiragana full senbatsu single and Kanjis will be the ones having one or two B-sides for them.
In other words, one single with Kanji in the senbatsu and the next with Hiragana in it, and they'll be rotating the groups for the senbatsu of each single.
It's interesting because If what I'm saying it's true then another thing we can expect in the future would be a collab senbatsu between Kanji and Hiragana members with one center from each group.
It' a shame that Zuumin has to go. She's a great member and has so much potential! But I guess, in the end, health is the most important! I'll miss her voice and her character from the group.
Though I have something I don't understand - it may be my English skills or the inexperience in 46G. Some people talk about her like she already graduated. Is she still part of the group and maybe she'll have some graduation ceremony or is she already gone? How does it work? Some comments elsewhere really confuse me. ><
^As far as I know she hasn't actually graduated yet. It may have been referring to the Hiatus she took last year which kinda felt like she graduated lol but no, she should be having a final graduation concert or something at least, but nothing has been announced yet. It would be weird if they just let her graduate without a send off, especially as she's one of the, if not the most popular member.
It appears she chose to focus on her studies. She joined Keyaki her first year of high school and now that she is in university, she said she had to think of "what next?".
