New Team K Waiting Stage Shonichi Setlist

New Team K were the first team to perform their new [Waiting Stage] after the team shuffle. They performed their set on 1st November 2012. The setlist included songs from most previous Team K stages, as well as songs from each of the other teams, and each of the sister groups, as well as album, single and coupling songs.

The included members for this shonichi were:

Note that Matsui Jurina was originally scheduled to perform but due to illness was replaced with Matsubara Natsumi. Mitsumune Kaoru was set to be in New Team K but graduated before their first appearance.

The full setlist is below, with the original appearance of the song in brackets and the shonichi members for the unit songs.

M17 - Heavy Rotation (single)
M18 - First Rabbit (1830m)
M19 - Sougen no Kiseki (K3)

I haven't seen the show so can't comment on the performance, but this looks like an interesting mix of songs from all over the AKB48 repertoire. Indeed, one of the most interesting things is the inclusion of songs from all the sister groups (including SDN48!). Previously it has only been the sister groups performing AKB48 songs, so it is good to see it the other way around. As a Team 4 fan I'm a bit bitter about Hashire! Penguin, and hope Team K don't perform it at Request Hour, what with Suzuran's pushing of it at the senshuuraku. It will be interesting to see how these new teams work with the extended number of members, and how they will be rotated, and if the kenkyuusei will play a role in them.
