NMB48 has announced the new Senbatsu for their 2nd single, currently still untitled, which will be released on October 19th and we have to report some shocking changes. As was announced before, Yoshida Akari will be replaced because she is taking a 'break', but surprisingly she is not the only one. Kondo Rina and Watanabe Miyuki have been removed from Senbatsu as well! The three girls will be replaced by Yamaguchi Yuki, Yamagishi Natsumi and Murakami Ayaka.
New Senbatsu List
Ogasawara Mayu, Kadowaki Kanako, Kishino Rika, Kinoshita Haruna, Kotani Riho, Jonishi Kei, Shiroma Miru, Fukumoto Aina, Yamaguchi Yuki, Yamada Nana, Yamamoto Sayaka
Yamagishi Natsumi (1st Gen), Jo Eriko (2nd Gen), Murakami Ayaka (2nd Gen), Yagura Fuko (2nd Gen), Yogi Keira (2nd Gen)
I don't want to overreact here, but this looks like another scandal. A 'break' for two girls announced and immediately afterwards two more front girls are removed from Senbatsu? The situation for NMB48 looks not nice at the moment, and that really makes me worry what is going on with them.
