Hinatazaka46 will release their sixth single (currently untitled) on October 27.
There will be 21 members singing the title track with second-generation member Kanemura Miku taking on the center position for the first time. Kanemura reflected on her blog, "From my time in Hiragana Keyakizaka, I've experienced various positions including third row, second row, and first row. The center position was a big figure that was in front of me all this time. I thought they were really cool. Watching them made me want to become stronger." She also described the moment she was selected as the center, "That moment when my name wasn't called until the end, various words raced through my head. No way. I can't do it. I feel so insecure. Only negative words came to mind. At that time, Nibu-chan was close by. She said to me 'You'll be fine!' in her usual way. Other members came running to me. At that moment, tears overflowed my eyes. This is such a kind group. The words that were trapped in my mind started to go away."
She continued, "At that time, I wasn't able to organize my feelings, but right now, I am very positive. I want to deliver our sixth single to many people, and let them know about Hinatazaka46's charms! That is what my heart says. I won't forget to 'be humble and make every effort.' Please look forward to our sixth single!"
The single will be released in five different versions: Limited Editions A ~ D and Regular Edition. The Limited Edition will come with a serial number to enter to win a special prize, as well as a photo of one member. More details will be announced later, so stay tuned!
