Mom?!?! Sisters And A Mother Of The Current Members Are Included As 7th Generation Member For Idoling!!!
On June 5th (Fri) 2015, Fuji television variety show run by one of the popular comedians now, Bakarizumu, “Idoling!!! 10th Year Of Asu-ing!!! (アイドリング!!! 10年目の明日ング!!!)” (Fujitv ONE Sports/Vareity, Fujitv) had a surprise announcement that there will be three more members to be included in the group, Idoling!!! as the 7th generation members.
At the end of October, 2015, all of the members of Idoling!!! will be graduating. And before that big turning point of their career, three new members will be included as a final, regular member. The three new members to be included are the younger sister of Nao Asahi, Runa Asahi, and the older sister of Kaede and Ruka Hashimoto, Natsuki Hashimoto, and Hitomi Sakai’s mother, Yoshiko Sakai. Obviously, all of these new members are blood-related family and the new members will also be appearing on their final concert on October 5th, 2015 (Mon), held in Nihon Budokan, Tokyo.
After the filming at the studio, they held a press conference run by Bakarizumu and Idoling!!! Bukarizumu tells us, “Yes, this it is a surprise, but it’s not just a temporary surprise prank, but actually welcoming the new members as the 7th generation members. Don’t treat them special, but please collaborate with the other members.” He adds, “Although they are participating in a very short term, I hope the 7th generation members would also have the will of it as that ‘we are the official 7th generation members.’ It’s really not a joke…”.
The show is scheduled to be on air July 2nd (Thu), 2015, midnight.
