Including Keyakizaka46 tenure, only Sugai Yuuka, Habu Mizuho, Kobayashi Yui, Koike Minami, and Watanabe Risa have been featured in all single A-side senbatsu's. This is the first Sakurazaka senbatsu to not include Moriya Akane, Ozeki Rika, and Takemoto Yui This is the first Sakurazaka single to not include Matsudaira Riko (graduated). The senbatsu for this single is made up entirely of the top 14 members to sell out in the 1st single online handshake events. This single continues the Sakura8 system, similar to Nogizaka46's Fukujin system. This system remains relevant for all tracks in the single, with Morita Hikaru, Fujiyoshi Karin, and Yamasaki Ten rotating centers for each song. Sakura 8 members for BAN will be present in the 1st and 2nd rows of each song. I will continue to update with all relevant information as it comes.
