    I got this weird thought that she might be on her way out when she looked off during the shuffle announcement. She didn't participate in last year SSK too. Shame, cause she's really pretty, she might have a shot in modelling.

    Generation change.

    It's kind of a melancholy feeling to see the old NMB go but she's done well. I'd imagine Uno Mizuki will probably be next to announce.

    A number of NMB 2nd gen members did not participate in Sousenkyo last year.
    It's sad but I wish Mao well.

    Aw Mao, one of my oshis. I don't want her to leave of course but I'm happy for her.

    I wonder if she'll keep her gig on Saepii Mahjong or if they'll have someone else sit in her place.

    Wait what? Kojimako?? I did not expect that one. :eek: :(

    I guess she is 21. And, well, realistically I wouldn't have expected her to make it past 2nd row of senbatsu for the foreseeable future - she has been out of the running for top girl. If she has found what she wants to do, then it's fair to move on and go for it as I think that sadly her AKB peak was already past.

    Whatttt Mako was on the rise (very slowly but steadily) and she’s still young. There has to be plans to her outside of the 48G. Her announcement doesn’t seem very teary either.

    I like Mako, I wish her well in the future. Like others I think she still had a future in AKB.

    Also I guess this clears the way for Moeka to be pushed as Team K center soon.

    Key points of this graduation:
    • She got a new dream and prepared for two years.
    • She feel that her preparation is completed now.
    • While she may be able to realise her dream while still in AKB, she wanted challenge herself.
    • She will be in entertainment industry (She's with Sun Music, a big old agency, form two yryea now)
    • She wanted to announce in front of her beloved members, fans, friends, and family. As far as I know, the only people she love who is not here is the Team B/4 members that has concert coming up tomorrow. But a lot more people know about it already.

    Like, I'm relatively new to AKB, and I've seen a few graduations already.

    But this is the first one that HURT, guys. Is this what the Golden Age graduations were like? Because I think I get it now.

    :(

    To be honest ... the reactions of other members during graduation performances like, acchan's or yuko's still hurt, even 5 years later.
    Especially if your oshi completely looses it because she doesn't want it to happen

    in my humble opinion ... management should shift that push down a few gears or she'll burn up on re-entry, we all know how these kind of pushes can generate quite a back lash, and I don't think she's ready for that.

    I think she’ll go the variety personality route because it seems she’s really happy in those gigs. I don’t think she’ll go Kpop at all; that ship sailed after PD48. She was frustrated that her Korean fan meet planned for December had to get cancelled for no reason (AKS lol) so her independence now will allow her to have more of these intimate fanmeets as well.

    I also think Juri will be next because of some comments she’s been saying in handshakes and that Hongki interview. AKB really starting to feel like MM after Aichan left.
