Speculated to be the single outfits, if it's true it means that Hiragana's will be included in this single again (whether it means they will be part of senbatsu or not is another story)
Techi, Mona, and Aoi are not confirmed to have ended their keyaki hiatus so i'm not sure if they will be part of this single..

Tracklist is out!! The single is called Ambivalent! The official meaning of that word is 'having mixed feelings or contradictory ideas about something or someone.'
sums up keyakizaka46 a lot doesn't it. lool.
Anyone wanna take a wild guess at the center????????
Senbatsu lineup is here~
Oda Nana - Saito Fuyuka - Moriya Akane - Watanabe Rika - Ozeki Rika - Yonetani Nanami - Ishimori Nijika - Sato Shiori
Uemura Rina - Sugai Rika - Nagahama Neru - Koike Minami - Nagasawa Nanako
Habu Mizuho - Suzumoto Miyu - Hirate Yurina - Watanabe Risa - Kobayashi Yui
Out - Shida Manaka, Imaizumi Yui, Harada Aoi.
Manaka has been on hiatus since the start of this year after the Kouhaku situation. After a very minor scandal where she was seen with some random dude in her hometown, she hasn't been seen again. Harada Aoi is on hiatus due to studies. She's focusing on university for the time being. Imaizumi Yui is, as you all know, still suffering from some health issues, but she's also staring in a new drama, so we'll have to see whether its due to a busy schedule or a health flare up.
Things to note: No hiragana members again, as expected. Habu seems to have solidified herself as a front row member, and Uemura and Nanako have finally been given the positions their handshake sales deserves, at the expense of Rika's locked 2nd row position. Akanen seems to have been dropped to 3rd row too, probably an indication of her HS sales.
Sad to see 3 girls out but at least we know, had they all been able to, this single would be another 21 member senbatsu.

Ambilavent radio rip is out!
tbh it's gonna take me a lot of listens to get used too... definitely not their best a-side for me, but it's a good comeback song that gets the crowd pumping, so i guess this will be that kind of song you would perform at kouhaku lol

I guess it's a tricky one because the general public only know the 1st generation of the group, and they love the formula the group already has (being able to recognize a groups members is always a plus) so sony are probably thinking "if it's not broken, don't fix it". If this does continue however, I would rather they just take Hiragana's out once 2nd gen Kanji come in and call Hiragana's the third 46 group.
Full MV is out!
Seems like the formation truly doesn't mean anything since Akane and Nijika got ample screen time despite being 3rd row!
Fans were quick to note that they reused the stairs from Hiragana's mv lol
And here are the 2nd round of HS results for this single~ as usual, copypasta'd from s48
rank. (prev. rank.) sold slots/total slots (+change) member name
01. (01.) 24/24 (+00) Nagasawa Nanako (1st round sold out)

I like Ambivalent so much! But sadly, I don't really like Happy Aura (so far), though I'm happy Hiragana got their "image song" or how should I put it.
The HabuPon duet. I'm dying. (Yuipon is also in my top favourites, so omgomgomg.)
When do Neru & Miichan & Ozeki get a unit name?
I'm surprised that there's no Techi solo this time, but this means one more kanji song, so yay~
Also, don't really mind Techi center again, she seems to be refreshed and I love how she smiles at some point of the MV. Love to see happy Techi.
I can't wait to hear the rest of the songs! I'll probably buy the Type-C one. It sadly doesn't have Habu on the cover (she's on Type-B, whyyyyyyyy), but has the HabuPon song and MV! :3 - But honestly, I think the covers are kind of boring. The only one I really like is Techi's. I generally like the concept, but not the poses. Also, the writing can hardly be seen. Maybe they'll be shiny irl?
The other thing... They should just split Kanji an Hiragana to two groups already (well, they kinda did) and have some Hiragana singles as well. I'm also that kind of fan who doesn't want to change the Kanji 21-nin senbatsu, but at the same time, I'd love Hiragana to have more chances to shine. Well, maybe next time. At least they got an album and a TV show now.
♥ Buono! = Forever the elite unit of the kingdom idol ♥
