So on today’s Hello! Station we got an announcement of a new SATOYAMA unit!
L to R: Moe Kamikokuryo, Ayumi Ishida, Saki Nakajima, Tomoko Kanazawa
What surprised me was just having Kamiko be the one to announce this as if she was the leader of this unit. Granted, this announcement is slightly weakened by the fact the other 3 have been in previous SATO units (Ayumi in Harvest, Nakky in DIY, HI-FIN, and Kanatomo in ODATOMO. It also didn’t help that the name of the unit is a bit lazy and kind of mundane (though it makes the acronym KINK seem very interesting!).
Anyway, they will release an event single, “Furusato no Yume” during the SATOYAMA e Ikou! event / Hinafest date). This unit won’t last too long with Nakky graduating in June, but it’ll be nice to see what the song willbring.
