AKB48's 33rd Single Titled [Heart Ereki] and Centered by Kojima Haruna

During the 4th Janken Tournament, AKB48 performed their 33rd single for the first time. This year's cool single, to be released on October 30, is called [Heart Ereki]. Kojima Haruna was surprisingly picked as center.

Apart from an unexpected center, some other interesting choices have been made for senbatsu. AKB48's Kawaei Rina and Iriyama Anna who up till now only have been selected for the mass senbatsu of [Manatsu no Sounds Good] and [Sayonara Crawl], are in as well as HKT48's Ota Aika who hasn't been in AKB48 senbatsu since [Everyday, Kachuusha].

All senbatsu members have a special nickname only for this song which is indicated in brackets in the senbatsu list below.

AKB48 33rd Single [Heart Ereki] Senbatsu
Team A: Iriyama Anna (Veronica), Kawaei Rina (Kawaei), Takahashi Minami (Linda), Yokoyama Yui (Mary), Watanabe Mayu (Elizabeth)
Team K: Oshima Yuko (Lucy)
Team B: Kashiwagi Yuki (Catherine), Kojima Haruna (Center; Michelle), Shimazaki Haruka (Angelina)
Team 4: Minegishi Minami (Barbara)
Team S: Matsui Jurina (Team K concurrent; Caroline)
Team E: Matsui Rena (Sandy)
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka (Rosanna), Watanabe Miyuki (Team B concurrent, Josephine)
Team H: Ota Aika (Margaret), Sashihara Rino (Lola/Laura)

Personally I think it is a nice move to pick someone unexpected as center once in a while. Kojiharu fits the song and performs well. But this can also mean she is about to graduate soon and her becoming center and getting a bunch of solo lines would then be a graduation present... We'll see.
