Ichii wrote on her blog, "I have applied for 'Otona AKB48 Audition.' I will do my best! But, I haven't received the result for the paper screening yet...I am worried...I wonder who else applied for it other than Kintaro-san..."
Comedians Kintaro and Yahata Kaoru previously revealed that they also applied for the audition.
The application period is already over, and according to the campaign's official site, only those who pass the paper screening will be notified via email or phone call by April 4.
