It was announced today that (Hiragana) Keyakizaka 46 will officially be re branding as Hinatazaka46, the third official Sakamichi group, as of today.
Formerly Hiragana Keyakizaka46, the group was created with the addition of Nagahama Neru's late arrival to Keyakizaka46. Initially intended to be an unders group for Kanji Keyaki, they gained mass popularity over the years after adding 11 more (1st generation) members, rivaling Kanji members popularity themselves. After 2 years since their debut they have achieved a 3-day budokan live, multiple TIF performances, their own show 'Hiragana Oshi', their own Drama, their first Solo Album, and finally the addition of their 2nd generation, the group will finally take the next slope up as Hinatazaka46.
Please support them from now on!
I will edit this first post within the next week to 'migrate' relevant Hiragana Keyaki information here and 'clean out' the Kanji Keyaki 1st page so please be patient ^^
This is such a great surprise and i'M SO HAPPY THEY FINALLY GET TO DEBUT! These girls are so cute and popular and shining beauties that deserve to be an official group! I can't wait to see what they do next
