Discussion in 'NGT48 Graduated Members' started by nakotteiijan, Sep 8, 2015.
Final thank you's?
She also removed her photo from the NGT48 theater.
A little late but: Yurian, sotsugyou omedetou!
Ayutarou posted a video of Yurian thanking everyone on her instagram! https://www.instagram.com/p/Ba6ZwshD7AJ/?taken-by=nakamuland_official
Honestly I haven't been this upset about a graduation in a while (｡•́︿•̀｡)
Although I understand why she graduated, I was just starting to really like her. I found her interesting when I first saw her back in 2015, but I didn't really start paying attention to her until earlier this year (tbh I haven't been paying that much attention to NGT in general). I hope she won't completely disappear even though she won't be an idol anymore.

I've been out of the loop regarding 48g that this graduation surprised me! I will miss her presence in the group, but it's completely understandable that she'd want to move on. Wish they promoted her!
I have this photo of Otaki that I got as a bonus when I bought a 2nd single cd. Sadly I didn't pay much attention to Yuriyan before she graduated, so I'm thinking someone else might enjoy her photo more than me. If anyone is interested in it feel free to message me on here!
Aww, too bad she graduated so early!
She hasn’t updated her instagram, in some time...
Does she have a twitter/blog ?
Unfortunatly, no I really thought she'd keep updating her insta, cuz she said that she always wanted to work with singing, even before ngt.... we'll, perhaps she'll be like AKB's maachan and rise from the ashes someday lol
My gut feeling is she's now in her “artistic cocoon”. She wants to focus on music, right? So I imagine she's upping her skills, probably with lessons, and/or composing, and/or recording. It can take her a few months to be ready to come out.
Lol, I don’t want to wait 7 years for her to come back
But yeah, maybe she’s just taking some time off, hope she’s doing good~
The heck. I don't know why it took me so long to find this out, but these two accounts belong to Otaki after she had graduated, am I correct? The amount of friend accounts that pop up in the "Followers you know" list on the side seems to suggest so, at least. If this is the case, I guess this might be useful information for those who miss her but weren't aware of it yet.
Speaking of taking me too long, I'll also have you know that Otaki made an unexpected appearance on Showroom on occasion of Mofu's birthday celebrations, back at the beginning of this month, so here's the related video too. She is showing up more conspicously in the Part 2 of the stream below.
Finally Asobi-ism (Mofu + Otaki + Taro) were reunited, if only for a day! \(^0^)/
I only started following the twitter and instagram accounts this week myself.
I'm glad that she seems to be doing well! I really wish I had known about these accounts earlier, since it seems like they were created pretty soon after she graduated and I've been here wondering if I'd ever hear of her again lmao
I see hardly any activity around these places, but I felt like hopping in again after spotting this thread on the NGT matome.
By the look of it, seems like Otaki is preparing to make a return to the show business sometime soon. The thread is predominantly about how she has set up a Showroom account of her own (link here), which is actually something she had announced around a week ago on Twitter already through a pinned post (shame on me for not having noticed it any sooner).
However, someone in there also pointed out the fact that the room belongs in the Professionals section, rather than the Amateurs. When I went to look into the room, what caught my attention in particular was that banner on the upper left. It links to the home page of NEW BRIGHT Productions (link here), which seems likely to be the new agency Otaki is now signed up to (I'd say likely since she doesn't appear on the list of affiliated talents that is on the same site, at least yet).
Looking at the company overview page (link here), it also turns out to be an all-comprehensive talent agency created and run by TeNY itself (Niigata's television company, for those who don't know already...)
So, there could be a reason why the official NGT Twitter account just followed back Otaki's Twitter today ...or maybe not quite, considering how other NGT members have long been following (and leaving Likes) on her Twitter since before this point.
Hoping for some further developments from here on, in any case.
She said she'd return to the entertainment industry. More the behind the scene parts?

Otaki announced some days back she had opened a YouTube channel. No videos have been uploaded yet, but you can reach it here nonetheless:
Otaki Yuria has uploaded her first video on YouTube
Congratulations to Otaki for having her first soloist music release! Below is a translation from WWS Channel with more info on the song.
The news was also reported on TeNY (Niigata's television channel, to which Otaki is affiliated)'s Twitter account. Anyway, for anyone who wants to purchase/take a listen to the song, the list of services offering it can be consulted here on LinkCore:
I think the most reliable service for non-Japanese purchasers is supposed to be either Amazon or YouTube Music, not entirely sure about Spotify and Google Play instead.
Ex-NGT48 member Otaki Yuria releases her debut single, “I finally got to fulfill what used to be my dream!”
Otaki Yuria, who after graduating from national idol group NGT48 had been active in Niigata as a reporter and model, with Showroom and YouTube live broadcasts as the main feature, has released her solo debut single, “Otome Moyou”.
Making a comeback in entertainment activities after one year had passed since graduating from NGT48, Otaki Yuria has now realize her solo singer debut, which was a dream of hers ever since her idol days. Regarding her activities for the next future, she spoke about wanting to repay back the favor given by all the fans showing her their support, by working actively, other than as a music artist, also as an entertainer in a variety of fields.
For this song, the lyrics were handled by multimedia creator Ujita Mai, who is currently garnering attention on TikTok. What was produced is one track which masterfully represented the beautiful and fleeting condition of Springtime.
Moreover, a LIVE MUSIC promotional campaign is also planned to be held, to celebrate the release.
Out of those who have listened to “Otome Moyou” more frequently on LIVE MUSIC during this period of time, an *autographed photo” will be given away as a gift to the three people with the highest play count.

[Message from Otaki Yuria]
My first ever solo single! I finally got to fulfill what had always been my dream!
This one is a Spring-styled song depicting the fleeting girl’s feelings.
I’d be happy to have many people, as well as the fans who had always been there to encourage me, listen to it.
