Kojizaka46 makes a debut with original song “Kaze no Razen”

18 Oct

Kojima Haruna, who earned herself much spotlight with self-created subunit Kojizaka46 during the recent AKB48 5th Janken Tournament, made an official debut with her group during a Nogizaka46 concert on 15th October.

Making a surprise appearance onstage together with 5 other members whom she initially recruited for the Jankan Tournament, she first introduced the group before announcing the rest of the senbatsu members.

After that, they performed Kojizaka46’s original song “Kaze no Razen”.

“Even though i didn’t request for it, somehow only my choreography was made easy,” Kojima revealed, drawing laughter from the audience.

Kojizaka46 was initially meant to disband after the Janken Tournament, whether Kojima won or lost. However, with support from the Nogizaka46 members, including Ikoma Rina who was recruited during the Janken event, Kojima was able to progress to the final rounds. “I was able to come thus far with the support of you, so I won’t disband even if I win,” she said.

The song will be included as a coupling track in AKB48’s 38th single “Kibouteki Refrain”, to be released 26th November.

Firstly, i love that Nogizaka style flowing skirt. It looks so elegant and the pastel blue is so pleasing on the eyes!The dance looks very graceful too and i’m glad they made it simple for Kojiharu because i can’t imagine her juggling Center of Kojizaka, Center of Janken Coupling Song, and Senbatsu of Kibouteki Refrain all at the same time. I can’t wait to hear the full song….read elsewhere the lyrics actually make the song sound like a graduation song?

    If I didn’t know Kojiharu, I’d think management is trying to push her jaja she has so many things right now and not just AKB but her solo work as well. ” the lyrics actually make the song sound like a graduation song?” Isn’t it more about this song being the first and the last one for Kojiazaka46?
