NMB48 3rd Single Titled [Junjou U-19] + Senbatsu Announced

NMB48's 3rd single, set to be released on February 8, finally has a title! The single will be called Junjou U-19 (純情U-19; Pure/Naive U-19).

Apart from the title, the Senbatsu line-up, as well as the members for Akagumi and Shirogumi have also been revealed.

Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka, Watanabe Miyuki, Yamada Nana, Fukumoto Aina, Ogasawara Mayu, Jonishi Kei, Shiroma Miru, Kadowaki Kanako, Kondo Rina, Kotani Riho, Kinoshita Haruna, Kishino Rika
1st Generation Research Student: Kinoshita Momoka
2nd Generation Research Students: Jo Eriko, Yagura Fuuko, Yogi Keira

Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka, Yamada Nana, Ogasawara Mayu, Kadowaki Kanako, Kinoshita Haruna, Kishino Rika, Shinohara Kanna
1st Generation Research Students: Yamagishi Natsumi, Okita Ayaka
2nd Generation Research Students: Jo Eriko, Yogi Keira, Kodakari Yuka

Team N: Watanabe Miyuki, Fukumoto Aina, Jonishi Kei, Shiroma Miru, Kondo Rina, Kotani Riho, Yamaguchi Yuki
1st Generation Research Students: Kinoshita Momoka, Hikawa Ayame
2nd Generation Research Students: Yagura Fuuko, Murakami Ayaka, Tanigawa Airi

The title of the single sounds interesting, looks like NMB48 is trying to appeal with its overall young members.

The senbatsu line-up is not very surprising: Watanabe Miyuki and Kondo Rina are back, while Yamaguchi Yuki, Yamagishi Natsumi and Murakami Ayaka are out. The only thing that came unexpected in my opinion is the choice of Kinoshita Momoka for Senbatsu.

As for Shirogumi and Akagumi, there have been a few changes too. Kodakari Yuka is completely new in Shirogumi, while several other members have changed the teams. For example, Fukumoto Aina changed from Shirogumi to Akagumi and Jo Eriko the other way round. I am not really sure why they did this, but maybe they want to balance the popularity among the teams.
