The crowd of 15,000 people cheered as Sugai Yuka was appointed captain of the group. To the surprise announcement, Sugai commented, "I'm not sure if I'm the right person, but because I was chosen, I have to be mindful of the members, and do my best to be recognized as the captain."
Meanwhile, Moriya Akane will serve as the group's vice captain. She stated, "I'm so surprised that I don't know what's going on, but I will do my best in my own way."
