On September 23rd at HKT48’s theater, the group revealed their second generation.

At the end of Team H’s performance a screen was put on stage that announced the debut of HKT48’s second generation, which caused the venue to cheer. Then the 21 new second generation members appeared on stage and sang AKB48’s hit song “Aitakatta”. After the performance finished, second generation member, Tashima Meru, stepped forward as the group’s representative to greet the audience.

The second generation has an average age of 14.2 years and each member stepped forward to introduce themselves and their personal dream. Tashima Meru said, “I want to be known as HKT48’s sunflower and I’ll be looking toward the center position. I hope to grow with the group in a carefree manner and become someone who puts in a lot of effort. And lastly, my goal is to become a singer and actress. I won’t forget my goals and I’ll work hard.” Next Tomonaga Mio declared her dream, “My dream is for HKT48 to become a group that people around the world are aware of.

And in the end, HKT48 Theater’s Manager Saito appeared on stage to surprise the members that the first generation research students and second generation research students will begin performing a research student stage beginning on September 30th.
