Nogizaka46 4th Single Senbatsu Revealed

The senbatsu for Nogizaka46 4th single was announced on today's [Nogizakatte Doko?]. The release date and title have not yet been set. The senbatsu is:

Ikuta Erika

Shiraishi Mai
Matsumura Sayuri
Akimoto Manatsu

Noujou Aimi
Saito Asuka
Wakatsuki Yumi
Inoue Sayuri

Takayama Kazumi

Instead of a kami 7, there is a hachifukujin, eight "lucky gods". These members will get the media spotlight. These are the first eight members in the above list, those not in italics.

One surprise is Akimoto Manatsu, above, who withdrew from the group to study shortly after its formation. She makes her reappearance here and it straight into the hachifukujin. She has stated her surprise at this selection and is anxious to how the fans will treat her but wants to do her best to be recognised as a Nogizaka46 member and accepted by the fans.
