On February 6th, AKB48's Kashiwagi Yuki held a release event for her solo debut single, "Short Cake".
Kashiwagi, who claims herself to be an 'ame-onna' (a woman whose presence causes rain), commented on the snow in Tokyo on this day. "There was a downpour on the debut day of French Kiss, and now snow for my solo debut. I wonder if I've entered the hall of fame for ame-onnas."
"Short Cake" is a ballad that describes a heartrending love for a childhood friend, and it's being used as the theme song for TV Tokyo's drama, 'Mielino Kashiwagi', starring Kashiwagi herself.
She expressed, "It's been a dream of mine for a long time, so my dream has come true after 6 years. I'm happy that this day has finally come." She also revealed that she has been receiving support from fellow members Watanabe Mayu and Sashihara Rino. "They tell me, 'It's†nerve-racking†singing by yourself, but Yukirin will be okay.' That has been my support."
On this day, Kashiwagi held a handshake event for her fans. Comedian duo TIM, "spiritual college student" CHIE, and popular patissier Tsujiguchi Hironobu also celebrated her solo debut.
