Toriizaka46's 1st generation members chosen, but changes its name to Keyakizaka46
August 23, 2015

On August 21st, the final audition to pick the first generation member of Toriizaka46 --Nogizaka46's related group-- was held, and 22 girls have been chosen among 22,509 applicants.

The average age of the members is 16.8 years old, as the youngest member is 14 while the oldest one is 20 years old.
 
The audition had its first paper screening, second screening (self appeal + photo shooting, held in 6 different cities across the country), third screening (dance + singing), and this final screening (singing + interview) which was overseen by Akimoto Yasushi, the group's producer.

There were 45 finalists who participated, and 22 girls among them passed the audition as the group's first generation members.

During the group's 1st photo shoot, the management staff suddenly told the girls that its group name would be changed to 'Keyakizaka46', however, the reason for this change was not revealed even to the press, as they said it would be cleared later.

According to the management company, Keyakizaka46 is categorized as "the second group from the Sakamichi (='slope') series", and it's been undecided at this moment if the group would be positioned as Nogizaka46's sister group or its rival group. It will be decided by its members with how the group proceeds.

Keyakizaka46 welcome a new member
November 29, 2015



Nagahama Neru has joined Keyakizaka46 as its new member.

This announcement was made on November 30th during Keyakizaka46's regular program on TV Tokyo, "Keyaki tte, Kakenai?". Nagahama is a 17-year-old from Nagasaki Prefecture. During the program, it was revealed that Nagahama was unable to participate in the final auditions because her mother had dragged her back home when she was on her way to Tokyo.

After returning to Nagasaki, Nagahama's father, who saw his daughter crying in disappointment, discussed the situation with Keyakizaka46's staff. Then, the staff invited the Nagahama family to attend Nogizaka46's concert in Fukuoka. After watching Nogizaka46's concert, Nagahama's parents asked the staff to give their daughter another chance. The staff made an exception to let Nagahama enter the group.

Nagahama, who didn't participate in the final auditions, will begin her activities in Keyakizaka46's under group. The under group's name will also be Keyakizaka46, except Keyakizaka is written in hiragana, not kanji. It was also announced that the group will be holding auditions for the under group. More details on the audition will be revealed via their official website.
