    It's weird to see how Kanji and Hiragana are now considered as separate groups and Hiragana members are so well promoted for an undergirl while Nogi's 2nd n 3rd gens are still behind the 1st gen.

    Because Hiragana was always a "separate" group and never an "undergirl" to begin with.

    It's a shame that Hiragana are still being called an "undergirl" group, but I don't blame you at all.

    A lot of people are still confused because of their manager's bad decision of naming two separated groups with the same name.

    @anon: wasn't it intended as undergirl? I know well enough that rn it is a team inside of Keyakizaka46, but I'm also pretty sure that it was started as undergirl for the Kanji's with Neru to fill in for Harada Mayu. But since it's weird bc there's only one person in Hiragana they decided to hold an audition again no?

    But anyway essentially they're a group 'under' Kanji, which is why information about them are always linked to Kanji's but with a main group treatment

    @Tuberose: I heard it differently from another website.

    "Hiragana was created to adjust Neru late arrival when Neru was both a Kanji and a Hiragana. But then Neru became a full Kanji and management needed time to trace a new path for Hiragana, who aren't an undergroup or a team."

    But I do agree with you that Kanji is definitely the "main" group, especially famously speaking.

    So I guess that does make indeed Hiragana being "under" Kanji as you said anyway.

    Neru joined the group as a Hiragana Keyaki member in November 2015, and then she held a concurrent position in Kanji in June 2016.

    About Hiragana Keyaki and Neru, there are a lot of speculations, it is not easy to explain, but, its first positioning was "very likely" just an undergroup, and some Japanese medias still do not regard them as a separate group.

    Hopefully this will change some day.

    Meanwhile I am glad that they are getting this much attention lately, and really hope that Kanji won't start to gradually disappear as the time goes by.

    They are both wholesome groups with so much potential, and I wish that at least they all became a good memory for everyone in the future.
