AKB48 46th Single Announced, Shimazaki Haruka To Be Center

AKB48 46th Single

AKB48 have announced the release of their 46th single.

Currently untitled, the release date is set for November 16th in 10 editions.

Shimazaki Haruka has been chosen as center for this release.

Shimazaki Haruka

The full list of members who will be forming part of the single are:

  • Shimazaki Haruka
  • Watanabe Mayu
  • Kashiwagi Yuki
  • Kojima Haruna
  • Yokoyama Yui
  • Iriyama Anna
  • Mukaichi Mion
  • Okada Nana
  • Kato Rena
  • Kizaki Yuria
  • Kojima Mako
  • Takahashi Juri
  • Kawamoto Saya
  • Komiyama Haruka
  • Oguri Yui
  • Matsui Jurina
  • Yamamoto Sayaka
  • Sashihara Rino
  • Miyawaki Sakura
  • Matsuoka Hana
  • Nakai Rika

The fact that Shimazaki Haruka was chosen as the center for the single seems to be causing a slight divide among fans and some members (like Yamamoto Sayaka and Matsui Jurina), despite it being her 4th time as center.

While not confirmed as of now, it seems like there are some rumors floating around that Shimazaki Haruka has stated her intention to graduate from the group according to Nikkan Sports. This would make sense in a way, giving her the perfect opportunity to graduate with a last center release.

For now the graduation is not confirmed so I strongly encourage everyone to focus on the fact that we are getting a Paruru lead single.

We should be finding out more about this single in the coming months so make sure to stay tuned!
