SDN48’s 3rd Generation

30 05 2011

7 new faces have been added to SDN48 which includes 2 former 1st generation AKB48 members. Hitomi Komatani graduated from Team A on October 11th 2008 whilst Hana Tojima went the same way a month later on November 23rd 2008. According to an August 2010 Bubka issue, producer Aki-P was quoted to say that Hana wanted to return to the fold and join SDN48. News of these two coming back has been met with joy especially from Western fans.

The other 5 new members are models Sayo Hayakawa and Saemi Shinahama plus Avex singers Seara Kojo and miray. Rounding up the newbies is Korean girl Siyeon. It’ll be interesting to see how they fit into the group. I wonder if the 2 former AKB48  members will slot straight away into the senbatsu line-up?
