On the May 10th broadcast of TV Tokyo's program 'Nogizaka Koujichuu', the senbatsu members for Nogizaka46's 12th single (currently untitled) were announced.

Ikoma Rina will be making her return after 7 singles as the center for the upcoming release. The last time she was center was for their 5th single "Kimi no Na wa Kibou". She expressed, "I feel that I have been given the chance to utilize what I have learned as a concurrent member in AKB48. I only have experience as the center as the 'stairs that will create Nogizaka,' so I want to do my best while learning from Maiyan (Shiraishi Mai) and Yana-chan (Nishino Nanase), the centers who have held onto Nogizaka46's power."
