JKT48 KIII Boku no Taiyou

At the end of Team KIII’s Boku no Taiyou show on 14th February, there was an announcement that the setlist will have it’s senshurakuu (last stage) on 22nd February 2014. I was lucky enough to witness that announcement. Some members recalled that it seems only yesterday that they put the setlist poster on the theater wall and they’re anxious to rehearse the new setlist.

Fans can expect the announcement of new setlist at the end of senshurakuu show or at the Manatsu no Sounds Good Handshake Festival, the day after the senshuuraku.
