Nogizaka46 2nd Single [TBA] Senbatsu Announced

The senbatsu members for Nogizaka46's 2nd single was announced during the March 18th episode of Nogizaka tte, doko?

Senbatsu (announcement order)
Sakurai Reika, Ikoma Rina, Takayama Kazumi, Nakada Kana, Matsumura Sayuri, Hashimoto Nanami, Shiraishi Mai, Inoue Sayuri, Saito Yuuri, Miyazawa Seira, Ichiki Rena, Hatanaka Seira, Nishino Nanase, Hoshino Minami, Ikuta Erika, Iwase Yumiko

IN: Miyazawa Seira, Hatanaka Seira, Iwase Yumiko
OUT: Noujou Ami, Kawamura Mahiro, Saito Asuka

Shichi Fukujin
Sakurai Reika, Ikoma Rina, Takayama Kazumi, Nakada Kana, Matsumura Sayuri, Hashimoto Nanami, Shiraishi Mai

Two Shichi Fukujin (Nogizaka46's Kami7) members, Ikuta Erika and Hoshino Minami, have been swapped out for Sakurai Reika and Nakada Kana. The next single will also have 3 centers, Sakurai, Nakada and Ikoma.

At the time of posting, the title for the 2nd single has not been revealed yet. The single will release on May 2nd, 2012, the same day as Sashihara Rino's [Sore Demo Suki da yo].

It baffles me to see Ikuta Erika and Hoshino Minami removed from the Shichi Fukujin. I always thought the two were quite popular. Speaking of popularity, the most popular member Shiraishi Mai is not in the center 3. I wonder what has been planned for the song that they changed the members around like this.

As for the rest of the senbatsu members, my oshimen Kawamura Mahiro has been kicked out, as well as another of my favourites Noujou Ami. Why must the world be so cruel.
