    It's okay, it was supposed to happen to every member who has graduated anyway. :lol:

    We can always make this thread as active as possible. Any news / discussion is great, too. ;)

    Only her G+ will be closed, her twitter don't. Or she will make another new, like some SKE graduates.

    And talking about news:

    One thing great about following Karen is that whatever news came up, they are making us fans excited. :banana:

    Perhaps because she rarely appeared on TV? Once there are news about her being on TV or there is something new, it is not a small thing at all (movie role, stage play role, CM, ambassador).

    Yes, that's the hard reality for all girls who are graduated. Soon Mariyagi will gather here too. But tbh, I don't count Karen, Wasamin nor Akicha as graduated as long as their photos is hanging at the theater. They have graduated from the theater but not from AKB. But it's only for a couple of weeks, nothing to care about.

    Probably because it was few things yeah, she never really got much in AKB. I'd imagine musicals etc are kind of difficult to attend for foreign fans, and that seems to be most of her work.

    ^ You're right about attending musicals or events with her, but hey we still have her niconico videos. Sure they aren't coming regularly but at least they are accessible all over the world.

    I've been looking for the recording of Suuchan & Suzuran's radio program that have Karen as guest but no luck :/

    Or is it just haven't been available yet on the internet? Usually the fans are so fast. :lol:

    I found an interesting article about Karen. I'm trying to (rough) translate it with a very basic skill and web translator though. I hope at least the translation will be understandable. :^^;:

    Rough translation of the title is: "Iwata Karen, the 7 untold facts of the newcomer actress graduated from AKB"

    Awesome! So apparently she said that she made the choreography herself. :worthy:


    Today Karen participated in Detective Conan's event as guest. I'm surprised there are so many articles from various sources covering about this. o_O
