Video from the AKB48 concert in Taipei with her graduation ceremony.
I've just come across this article in the China Times dated today (10/24) about Maria's post-graduation life in Taiwan including the news that she will release a solo single at the end of this year:
Google Translation from Mandarin Chinese:
Story from the previous day, with an interview in Chinese. (the text is almost identical the what David posted above)
P.S. She answers some of the same questions: "What do you think of Taiwanese men?"
She released her debut single: Its called Shine Shine the Night
The song is quite catchy and has some nice parts. I hope she can produce more songs

Google Translation from Chinese is not that good but I'll put it in the spoiler:
Abe Maria blew herself up and her mother wanted to be a stray brother and mother-in-law to eat Ichiran ramen before recording
Abe Maria joined the "Mu Yao 4 Super Play" and experienced many one-day series, revealing that she most wants to be a one-day flight attendant in the future. She has learned a lot from Tai Zhiyuan, Kunda, and KID, and Winnie and Yang Yang do not hide privately. Sharing experience with her, she really wants to try acting, hoping to challenge melancholic roles.
Working with Tai Zhiyuan can always eat a lot of delicious food. Abe Maria said: " Working with Tai Zhiyuan must eat well, so I try not to eat when I go home, or I just eat salad." Every time I go out, Tai Zhiyuan will bring it. Everyone eats all kinds of delicacies, such as buying tofu, or filming the MV for her new song "Shine Shine the Night". Although there are luxurious bento and steak, Tai Zhiyuan suddenly wants to eat the famous Danshui A Ge. I asked the staff to buy it, "So I only eat salad when I go home, and the refrigerator doesn't put drinks but water. My friends will ask why my refrigerator only has vegetables and water."
At Mu Yao’s crossover concert last month, Abe’s mother wanted to fly to Taiwan to watch her perform, telling her that she would rather be quarantined first, but she was reluctant to do so by her mother, and finally the staff edited her performance video and passed it to her mother. My mother cried as soon as she saw it. She taught me to dance and sing since I was a child. My mother spent a lot of money and worked very hard. Seeing my performance, I felt that my dream came true and I didn't spend any money.
Grandma Abe Maria lives in Hawaii and has not seen each other for 10 years. She passed the performance video to her grandma. "Grandma asks, who is this? I thought it was Namie Amuro. Grandma said I became beautiful!
In the previous AKB48 Team TP, Abe Maria recorded and sang mostly chorus or a few of them. This time, the release of a solo single was very stressful. I went home every day to practice and recite the lyrics. At the beginning of the recording, I met the studio teacher face to face. Sing, but she was too shy to sing, and later changed to sing facing the wall.
Abe Maria said: "I have heard in Japan that many powerful singers drink bottles on stage, but they actually contain tonkotsu ramen soup, so I especially went to eat Ichiran ramen before recording."
My mother is very supportive of Abe Maria as an entertainer and hopes that she will have the opportunity to marry a member of the stray brothers like Lin Chiling. Abe said, "I have to be better before I can marry them."
Abe Maria likes Rainie Yang very much, and hopes to receive skin care products endorsements like Rainie Yang and Lin Chiling. She went to Rainie Yang's concert and admired Rainie Yang for being alone and showing her charm.
I've just discovered Maria's new official YT channel which started earlier this month:
