The Sakamichi Series group Nogizaka46, Keyakizaka46 [欅 坂 46] and Hiragana Keyakizaka46 [け や き 坂 46] will hold a simultaneous audition to recruit new members scheduled to be held this summer.
This will be the first time the Sakamichi Series group has auditioned simultaneously. Both Nogizaka46 and Keyakizaka46 have a high popularity among women, with the possibility that this audition will attract many enthusiasts.
So far, the applicants for Generation 3 audition Nogizaka46 became the largest number of participants with 48,886 applicants. This time, related officials revealed, "Since this is a joint audition at Sakamichi, we are targeting 100,000 applicants."
Prior to the recruitment, a seminar 'Sakamichi Goudou Shinki Member Audition Seminar' will be held at various venues this April. This seminar will present members from each group.
