SKE48 Debut 21st Single “Igai ni Mango” at Fan Thanksgiving Event at SKE48 Theater!
SKE48 gave thanks to their fans for their support in the 2017 AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo and performed their 21st single “Igai ni Mango” (release date: July 19) for the first time during their Senbatsu Sousenkyou Kansha Kouen at the SKE48 Theater on June 22nd.
All 19 members that ranked in took the stage, beginning the evening with “Happy Ranking” after thanking the fans for supporting them with votes for the election. This was followed by “Himawari” performed by election newcomers Rara Goto (#46), Yuki Arai (#58), Yuna Obata (#72), and Yuki Takahata (#78)
Up next was Sarina Soda (#8), Akane Takayanagi (#15), Masana Oya (#22), Yuna Ego (#36), Saki Takeuchi (#56), Ryoha Kitagawa (#65), and Sumire Sato (#68) with “Gomenne, SUMMER” and “Aozora Kataomoi” by Akari Suda (#8), Nao Furuhata (#14), Kaori Matsumura (#18), Mina Oba (#26), Natsuki Kamata (#44), Haruka Kumazaki (#63), and Marika Tani (#66).
Each of the 19 members gave speeches about their ranking in during the AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo, Rara Goto recalling how she couldn’t believe she received more than 20,000 votes in her first time placing. Masana Oya, who had not been among the top 100 announced in the preliminaries, fondly remembered Rika Tsuzuki shouting her name as the members of Team S wondered who would be #1 right after Jurina Matsui was announced at #2. Jurina Matsui expressed her thanks yet frustration at grabbing #3, vowing that SKE48 would have the most members ranking in the following year. Akari Suda was even more ambitious, hoping that all of the members of the group would be standing on the stage for Senbatsu Sousenkyou Kansha Kouen in 2018.
The 16 senbatsu members for SKE48’s 21st single took the stage as they performed “Igai ni Mango” for the first time.
Finishing with “SKE48”, the final celebration of another impressive showing by SKE48 in the AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo came to a close.
