    Interesting that Yumiko was included in that shot at the end with Yuuka/Pon/Risa/Akane. Hikaru and Hono are not a surprise but Yumiko was. Unless it's not meant to be significant at all and it was just because of her looks.

    Karin also appears on the store banners as well.

    Yumiko is quite popular so I think it makes sense. If Hikaru and Hono tier 1, Ten is tier 1.5, Yumiko and Karin tier 2 I think. Also yeah I think she has good visual balance with Hono.
    But anyways I don't think the Lawson lineup is that big of a deal, I think Yumiko being in the AEON stuff was more significant.

    Out of curiosity, is LIVE Online But With YOU put together at the last minute? After watching Hinata's LIVE Online I cant help but wonder about the significant difference in quality of the sets and performance, even the camera work was superior.

    One would think so on first glance but again, wihh the huge difference in set production, it's clear that Hinata's live was made as a 'recreation' of the live they would have had if the national tour had gone through as expected, so the girls had probably rehearsed and prepared for it.

    But it still goes without saying that as everything keyaki, mgmt always delays. The announcement of keyaki's live online was like less than 2 weeks if I'm correct while hinata's was like a month before. We never know why. They still managed to make an excellent live until that announcement lol

    If that's the case, I wonder how they are going to rename the variety show.

    Like @Iamyoung said the time between announcement and the actual live was really brief and the girls were still in lockdown. One of the many reasons I think rebranding was a last-minute idea. Even so, and even though I'm usually critical towards keyaki mnmgnt doing (and rightly so if I can say it myself lol) this time the result was quite impressive given the circumstances. The impact of it, the thought behind it, quite satisfying.
    Staff did an impressive job with sets in my humble opinion


    too bad they ruined it with the rebranding news lol



    ...I think it's a given we are keeping at least the K as first letter of the name..

    So, instead of "Keya", we would have "Kagu" for short? Aside from the funny name (for non-Japanese, I guess), Kagurazaka is a trendy, quaint shopping Tokyo district with a French ex-pat presence, very good Japanese cuisine, AND a slope (gotta have a slope). A place where Sugai-Sama, President Yumiko, and Berika would totally enjoy.

    The name is kind of cool if you see the kanjis: 神 (god) 楽 (fun) but it will always remind me of Gintama's character. :^^;:

    Anything is better than Sakura tbh. Kagura gives out a sensual, traditional, feminine vibe for me? If that’s the vibe they’re going for then it’d be interesting. Personally I think the sets created for Keyaki live were really cool. They tried to recreate the MV atmosphere and succeeded. Regarding timing, Keyaki always gets the short ends for some weird reasons. Remember when Tokyo Dome was announced a month in advance when usually tickets are sold for months? S&F literally would just drop an announcement and expect it to be well-received

    It is the zaka name in lyrics of Nogi song, "Hoka no Hoshi Kara". :p
    However, it is still not confirmed. I'll wait for an official announcement.

    OMG I hope this name will not be selected... "Kagura(s) / the Kaguras - single / Kagures - plural intonation on 'a'" in slang Greek is a sleazy and lame youngster suffering from severe sexual frustration and acts extremely annoyingly to girls... [see those Kagures with the motorbikes outside the school building? They're gross!]... this kind of situation.

    OMG not this one, how am I suppose to evangelize the group to my friends??? Hey guys lets check the new amazing live of Kagurazaka46, (or to make it worse: Kagura)... They'll be amused to death!

    ...But if we end up with that name, I represent one of the tiniest markets, so, still, this will be my own problem only <sigh>...

    It said that Kagurazaka was an alternative name, when they decided to change toriizaka. The domain was registered back in 2015. Cmiiw.

    Ooh, Kagurazaka was the original name I was hoping for Keyakizaka to be called when I first heard Toriizaka.

    It makes a lot of sense, especially with keeping the K.

    No one seems to have mentioned that Kagura is a type of traditional/ceremonial dance (I looked but perhaps just missed it?)

    Kagurazaka, huh?

    :fp:

    Personally I don't like it, but if it is the name chosen, I hope the members had input and they can establish it and make it their own.
