I usually give a pretty comprehensive run down of the final performance of the WACK auditions. This year it was pretty much uneventful. The performance was nothing spectacular and I don’t have any set lists anyway. I will just give the big news and leave it at that.
First, アンズピア (Anzupia) was renamed ア・アンズピア (A Anzupia) after coming in last in the renaming vote, which I honestly did not even know was happening.

EMPiRE: テラヤマユフ (Terayama Yufu) was placed in the group and will make her debut on April 21st at the NEW EMpiRE TOUR Fukuoka DRUM SON.

BiS: An announcement of disbandment of he current line up was made. The final performance will be on May 11th at the 『Are you ready to go? TOUR』 at Aksaka BLITZ. It was then announced that the group would be reformed and audition would be held at a later date. Some of the audition details were made.

I assume that アヤ・エイトプリンス (Aya Eightprince) and トリアエズハナ (Toriaez Hana) will remain with the group until the end of this era.
