Keyakizaka46 is a female idol group which officially debuted on the 6th of April, 2016 with the release of their hit single Silent Majority. A song much unlike the usual idol fare, with the girls singing against the established authority, voicing out those that are never heard. Their songs, coupled to choregraphy sometimes elegant, sometimes aggressive, but always polished, soon gained them the title of “cool idols”. Idols who aren’t all smiles, and who actually sometimes don’t at all.
They quickly gained a following after a more than successful launch and even participated in the Kōhaku Uta Gassen TV show in their first year of existence. Hirate Yurina, who has been the center of the group ever since its formation, quickly became its face as well thanks to her unrivaled expressions and overall visual power.
Yet, they are still idols, and as such have plenty to offer as far as the sweeter side of idols goes. Handshakes, TV shows, live streams, they have everything you can expect any big shot idol group to have if you ever want to learn more about them.
If you’re familiar with idols, you can jump straight to their variety TV Shows. Their most famous and first TV show that has been airing ever since the formation of the group is called Keyakitte, Kakenai? (Can you write Keyaki?). If you want to learn more about the girls by yourself, it’s your best bet. Japanese isn't your thing? No problem! You can find them all subbed in english, just check our videos page.
If you’re not really into variety shows and/or are looking for something more casual, we’ve got you covered. The Keyakizaka46 members have acted in a few dramas series so far, including Tokuyama Daigoro wo Dare ga Koroshita ka? (Who killed Tokuyama Daigoro?) and Re:Mind. If you want to learn more about them, you know where to go!
