The name of NMB48’s third single has been announced and its title: Junjou U-19. From the official website, the senbatsu for Junjou U-19:
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka, Watanabe Miyuki, Yamada Nana, Fukumoto Aina, Ogasawara Mayu, Jonishi Kei, Shiroma Miru, Kadowaki Kanako, Kondo Rina, Kotani Riho, Kinoshita Haruna, Kishino Rika
1st Gen KKS: Kinoshita Momoka
2nd Gen KKS: Jo Eriko, Yagura Fuuko, Yogi Keira
That means that from the Oh My God! senbatsu Team N member Yamaguchi Yuuki (Yuppi), 1st Gen KKS Yamagishi Natsumi (Natsumin), and 2nd Gen KKS Murakami Ayaka (Ayachan) have been removed in favor of Team N members Watanabe Miyuki (Milky) and Kondo Rina (Riichan) along with 1st Gen KKS Kinoshita Momoka (Kinoshita).
The line-up for Shirogumi and Akagumi this single are as follows:
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka, Yamada Nana, Ogasawara Mayu, Kadowaki Kanako, Kinoshita Haruna, Kishino Rika, Shinohara Kanna
1st Gen KKS: Yamagishi Natsumi, Okita Ayaka
2nd Gen KKS: Jo Eriko, Yogi Keira, Kodakari Yuuka
Team N: Watanabe Miyuki, Fukumoto Aina, Jonishi Kei, Shiroma Miru, Kondo Rina, Kotani Riho, Yamaguchi Yuuki
1st Gen KKS: Kinoshita Momoka, Hikawa Ayame
2nd Gen KKS: Yagura Fuuko, Murakami Ayaka, Tanigawa Airi
Really disappointed that Yuppi was removed from senbatsu especially after coming off making the Ue kara Mariko senbatsu, but then again I knew someone I loved from NMB would be taken out. Really sad. I’m really hoping she gets a big part in the Akagumi PV.
NMB48’s 3rd single, Junjou U-19, releases on February 8, 2012.
