The members of Keyakizaka46 are divided between two groups: “Kanji” Keyakizaka46 (欅坂46) and “Hiragana” Keyakizaka46 (けやき坂46), referring to the characters used to write their respective names. The kanji members are the main ones who you can find on the A-Sides songs, while the Hiragana group is considered an “under” group. They debuted on April 6, 2016, with their hit single Silent Majority.
Announced a few months after the formation of the Kanji Keyaki group, Hiragana Keyaki originally started with a single member, Nagahama Neru, before adding more through auditions consecutively in Spring 2016 and Summer 2017, evening out the number of girls in each groups.
