    There's probably some level of basic income coming from Vernalossom/Yoshimoto/Mercury/Toyota/whoever which is probably more than an unemployment check so it's probably worth hanging in there for many members.

    What Reveen said, but also maybe some would prefer to graduate when they can have a proper graduation stage, final HS, etc. Plus most members graduate either to start another career (not the best time to change careers in this uncertain situation) or due to school commitments (with so few activities as they have now, it's hardly taking much time away from them in the first place) so no reason to rush into graduation for most members anyway.

    Ok, so we should prepare another mass graduation from MNL48 by November because instead of the usual 48, MNL will temporarily have 36 members in the group and may return to it's 48 members again in the future

    If I understand it correctly they'll decide the 36 by holding an election?
    that's:
    a) brutal and even a bit cruel
    b) imho dumb, as you might end up losing those less popular members that in the end are still or could become important to the group

    but I guess they think it's the safe bet, keep those girls around for which people are obviously willing to shell out some hard earned cash
    (and now they cant be blamed for the decision who to keep and who to discard ... 'the fans have spoken', kinda cowardly )

    at the very least it shows no vision about what they want MNL to be

    Didn't they learn from their last 'death sousenkyo'? I remember when someone requested lots of trivia to be added to MNL48 profiles on our wiki and for a lot of them it said in the team history
    • Joined MNL48 as a Trainee on (date)
    • Promoted to Team MII/NIV on (date)
    • Graduated on May 1, 2019
    • Returned to MNL48 as a Kenkyuusei on May 7, 2019
    • (Promoted to Team MII/NIV/L on (date))
    For a lot of girls it also just ended after "Graduated on May 1, 2019" but the fact that some of them returned within a week shows that MNL48 management realised they made a mistake. I didn't expect them to bring the concept back and just treat Senbatsu Sousenkyo the way any other sister group does...

    Im not sure if Sato shiori (keyakizaka46) announced graduation or she actually just graduated. Same thing happened with ishimori nijika a few weeks ago.

    DEL48 as a whole disbanded, more or less COVID-19 complications in India and contract issues with YKBK48. Check DEL/MUB thread for any further info.
    Remaining members have reopened insta accounts, too.

    That is shocking. With so many front members leaving and her produce48 exposure, I thought she had better chances coming...

    Afaik she at least had better position in nmb single. The bad thing is she would probably not getting graduation center or song if she graduates near Akarin's graduation date.

    I don't know a lot about NMB and therefore neither Akarin nor Sae, but would a duet song be something that people would want? I am aware that Akarin is more popular (or at least that's how I see it), but Sae wasn't a nobody either.... lesser known NMB members had full blown gradcons

    I would like to take back my comment on DEL48. An official announcement on their instagram today says their activities are temporarily suspended until further notice, as the virus is raging throughout India. Not official disbandment as originally thought.
    I'm very happy that an official announcement has been published for better clarification. Thank you to the original post in the DEL/MUB thread.
