Former Hello! Pro Egg member Yuu Kikkawa (18) has officially scheduled her anticipated debut solo single. She will release “Kikkake wa YOU!” under the Universal J label on March 30, with her name romanized as You Kikkawa.

In addition to the single, Kikkawa will star in a movie, also titled “Kikkake wa YOU!” The movie is scheduled to open in early May during Golden Week.

Kikkawa has also been chosen to serve as an opening act for Universal Studios Japan’s special event “UNIVERSAL DREAM LIVE 2011,” which was revealed a few weeks ago. She will perform on March 19, the first day of the three-day event. BEAST and SDN48 are already scheduled to perform on that day as well.

Kikkawa first gained attention in 2006 when she was a finalist in Morning Musume‘s 8th generation audition. She became an Egg the following year, and she was later placed in the 3-member group Milky Way, tied in with the anime series “Kirarin Revolution.”

Her official website is now open.
