More details about HKT48's 2nd Single [Melon Juice]

During the first day of the Fukuoka Dome concert on 20 July, more details were revealed about HKT48's upcoming second single. The single will be titled [Melon Juice] and will be released on September 4th. The centers will be Tashima Meru and Tomonaga Mio. The senbatsu members are as follows:

  • Akiyoshi Yuka (KKS)
  • Anai Chihiro (Team H)
  • Fuchigami Mai (KKS)
  • Kodama Haruka (Team H)
  • Matsuoka Natsumi (Team H)
  • Miyawaki Sakura (Team H)
  • Moriyasu Madoka (Team H)
  • Motomura Aoi (Team H)
  • Murashige Anna (Team H)
  • Okada Kanna (KKS)
  • Okamoto Naoko (KKS)
  • Ota Aika (Team H)
  • Sashihara Rino (Team H)
  • Tani Marika (KKS)
  • Tashima Meru (KKS)
  • Tomonaga Mio (KKS)

There are still no details about B-sides.

While Tashima has been HKT48's center since their first original song, [Hatsukoi Butterfly], the announcement of a double center with Tomonaga was a surprise to both fans and members. Members said that they only learned of it during the photo shooting session for the single cover. Miyawaki Sakura wrote a long post on her Google+ talking about how frustrated she felt for not being picked as one of the centers, even though she placed 26th in the last Senbatsu Election (second highest rank in HKT48 after Sashihara Rino).
