Hiragana Keyaki Started Running with Release of 1st Album!
On June 20th 2018, Hiragana Keyaki (Keyakizaka46) released their debut album “Hashiridasu Shunkan”.
“Hashiridasu Shunkan” is a first CD released by Hiragana Keyaki alone, and there are three types: Normal edition, limited edition type A and B with Blu-ray. The Blu-ray for type A includes a part of the third day of the tour held from January 30th to February 1st in Nippon Budokan. For type B, a part of “Hiragana Zenkoku Tour 2017 ” is recorded. For more, the MV of the new single, “Kitai Shiteinai Jibun” is included in both types.
In addition to the 10 songs which were already released, 18 new songs are recorded including solo and unit singles. For all the types, “Kitai Shitenai Jibun” is recorded, and other songs are distributed into the three types.
In advance of the release, Hiragana Keyaki members were separated into 5 groups and visited 46 CD shops in Kanto areas on June 19th.
Before they visited the shops, departing ceremony was held, and 6 members (Mirei Sasaki, Kumi Sasaki, Shiho Kato, Kyoko Saito, Nao Kosaka and Miho Watanabe) showed up.
Each member was wearing uniforms and aprons of the chain stores such as TSUTAYA for Mirei, Tower Record for Kumi, HMV for Shiho, Shinseido for Kyoko, WonderGOO for Nao and Rakuten for Miho.
For the question, “Do you have any dreams or goals as you ‘started running’ now?”, Mirei, who was in the center for “Kitai Shitenai Jibun” answered. With a strong will, she said, “I want more people to know about us through this album, and we want to grow as a nationally recognized idol group. Even better, we would like to be an international group!”.
