This is the first solo project of SKE48, and Matsumura Kaori will become the first SKE48 member to make solo debut.

When a stage screen flashes the name of Matsumura and her solo debut, the concert venue was instantly filled with burst of laughters and cheers.

Even top 2 members of the group, W-Matsui (Matsui Jurina and Rena) haven’t yet gone solo. Perhaps it is Matsumura herself who understands what this project means to her the most-

“If the record won’t be sold out, do I have to graduate? I hope not…”, she said in awkwardly timid manner…
