Official music video:

Something like me ( 僕なんか) - Hinatazaka46 (日向坂46)

A little of the lyrics:

I'm not qualified to love you ... The flowers that bloomed there Straddle without noticing I later thought it was beautiful I didn't ignore it, I was busy living

When I looked back, I knew your existence. It didn't look like I was attracted to that personality and finally I realized that I was the ideal girlfriend.

Personal Japan billboard Review:

I love the music video !

It really shows a storytelling side which I find marvelous. The Song about Love both inside and outside , or for ourselves and for the one we love the most.It was very well capture.

Who are Hinatazaka46 ?

Hiragana Keyakizaka46 became an independent group on February 11, 2019, and was renamed Hinatazaka46. The new name is an alternate reading of Hyūgazaka (日向坂) street in Minato-ku, Tokyo, following the custom of naming groups after hills or sloping streets in the Sakamichi Series. The group's variety show changed its name to Hinatazaka de Aimashō. They also announced in a Showroom live broadcast that their fandom name would be Ohisama (おひさま), a slang for the Sun, stating that "just like a sunny place (日向, hinata) cannot exist without the Sun, [Hinatazaka46] cannot exist without the fans".

Their first single, "Kyun", was released on March 27, 2019, and surpassed 476,000 copies sold within the first week. The single became the best-selling debut single by a female artist in Japan, a record previously held by Keyakizaka46's "Silent Majority". "Kyun" also won the Best Choreography award at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. On September 24, a rhythm game titled Uni's On Air was released that featured Keyakizaka46 and Hinatazaka46. Hinatazaka46 attended the 70th NHK Kōhaku Utagassen for the first time in the group's history, where they performed "Kyun".

On January 16, 2020, the members of Hinatazaka46 were featured in a television series titled Dasada, with Nao Kosaka as the main protagonist. On February 16, 2020, three members were added to the third generation from the remaining unassigned members of the 2018 Sakamichi Series joint audition, bringing that generation up to four people. On July 31, 2020, Hinatazaka46 live streamed a concert titled Hinatazaka46 Live Online, Yes! With You!, where they announced that their first studio album will be released on September 23. Their mascot character, a sky blue bird named Poka, was introduced at the live streamed Hinakuri (Hina Christmas) 2020 concert on December 24.

On March 7, 2022, the group announced an audition for the group's fourth generation with applications starting that day and screening taking place on April 4. On March 30–31, they held their third anniversary concert at the Tokyo Dome, attended by around 100,000 people over two days.
