Sakamichi Groups Hint At Mysterious Joint Project

On the 10th, the three main Sakamichi groups (Nogizaka46Hinatazaka46 and Sakurazaka46) hinted at a joint project featuring the newest members to each group.

All of the newest generations had been added since 2022, with the footage showcasing each generation’s various activities including song performances, music video footage and more. At the very end, the words Sakamichi Rookie Competition appeared over the narration of “newcomers”. The tagline specifically reads: Singing, dancing. Skill and most importantly, love.

Given the habit of the Sakamichi groups jointly promoting their newest members together, this announcement was well received by many fans.
