HKT48 to Perform the [Pajama Drive] Stage Himawari-gumi Style

It was announced today that HKT48 will start to perform the [Pajama Drive] stage from 2nd November 2013. This will be a 3rd stage in addition to the current Team H [Hakata Legend] stage and the kenkyuusei [Party ga Hajimaru yo] stage. This stage will be performed Himawari-gumi-style. This means that 16 members will be selected for each performance taken from both Team H and the kenkyuusei.

The Himawari-gumi idea was first introduced to AKB48 in 2007 when members were mixed from Teams A and K to first perform the [Boku no Taiyou] stage and then the [Yume wo Shinaseru Wake ni Ikanai] stage. Both of these were original stages written for Himawari-gumi, however, [Pajama Drive] is a revival of Team B's 3rd stage. It is also currently being performed by the AKB48 Kenkyuusei. Team H's first original stage is still scheduled to start on 22nd December 2013.

Team H currently perform three songs from [Pajama Drive] as part of their [Hakata Legend] stage. These are "Temodemo no Namida", "Two Years Later", and "Shiroi Shirts". Also, Team H members Sashihara Rino and Oota Aika were part of the original Team B performances of [Pajama Drive].
