As you may already know, all members of Idoling!!! will graduate from the group on October 31. However, it's been revealed that they have added three 7th Generation members to the group!
The three members didn't have to go through an audition. They were chosen through strict selection by the staff.
The newly added members are #36 Asahi Runa, #37 Hashimoto Natsuki, and #38 Sakai Yoshiko. Asahi is #15 Asahi Nao's elder sister, Hashimoto is #21 Hashimoto Ruka's elder sister, and Sakai is #14 Sakai Hitomi's mother. The oldest member is Sakai Hitomi, who is currently 53-years-old.
Regarding the new members, producer Kanbara Takashi commented, "As it happens, they are near relatives of the current members, but in future activities, I am sure they will contribute to making the group more powerful. I am also expecting them to be supportive with private affairs."
The three 7th Generation members will not participate in Idoling!!!'s last single "Cheering You!!!" scheduled to be released on July 15. However, they will appear in their Nippon Budokan live on October 5.
