    Re: Team K - Matsubara Natsumi (Nattsumi)

    Another OG Team K member announcing her graduation. Now they're on equal footing with OG Team A with 4 members each. KK will probably announce her graduation soon as well, especially with Sayaka leaving, so that'll leave them with 3. It's looking like Team K might be the first team to have all of their original members graduate. :(

    I'd love to see what memolist has to say about Natsumi graduating. Is she still his oshi?

    Here's KK's reaction to Natsumi announcing her graduation: KK's blog

    You could look at it that way. Or you could look at it and think that AKB48 took a bunch of relatively ordinary girls and gave them the chance to sing and dance on stage for years and gave them recognition that they otherwise would never have had.

    Better to look at the positive side of things than dwell on the negative imo.

    Agreed. If anything, even though we may be sad that the members are leaving the group, we can look forward to the next chapter of their lives, with nervous anticipation.
    I would like to think that being in AKB48 has opened doors for them, and affirmed their convictions in life. I believe that being in AKB48 has, at the very least, given them the necessary experience, grit and guts to maneuver within the Japanese entertainment industry, equipping them with the skills to stand on their own and take the next step towards fulfilling their ultimate goals.

    No..... natsumin.. :cry:
    Although I expected it, but it is still a sad news. I'm happy though, this means that she is approaching a new world. Probably more chances for her. Natsimin will always be natsumin. Support her always! :)

    I personally think she should have at least stayed one more election though, she had a little momentum last year from being the only unranked team A girl afterall. It just feels like she´s giving up a little is as I have never seen her in anything much and all in all her graduation is...sad. She never really had a moment to shine, even in her dance off with umeda a billion years ago she didn´t really stand out.

    Re: Team K - Matsubara Natsumi (Nattsumi)

    I originally felt the same way - I had hoped she'd stage a comeback one way or another; however, after thinking about it a little while, I realized that the introduction of the Candidacy System for elections has quite possibly changed the nature of graduations, and what "graduation from AKB48" really means to the members.

    Graduation from AKB48 opens up a new set of doors for them, giving them a brand new world of opportunities to showcase their talents and win over new fans without the restrictions that come with the "Idol" genre and industry. Which is, from a pragmatic point of view, a good thing.

    But that doesn't necessarily mean that they're done with the group, or that they're giving up. Assuming the Candidacy System remains in place, there still is a chance that we can see these girls come back to work with AKB48 in future. In a way, I guess the Candidacy System manages to address one of the reasons why we, as fans, have such a bittersweet relationship with graduations; Where previously graduation meant that we would no longer see them performing together as a group, the Candidacy System gives us that glimmer of hope that we can still see them come back to collaborate with their "alma mater idol group", even while they are forging their own careers outside of AKB48.

    In Natsumi's case, I believe she's aiming to be an actress, am I right? With her looks, I have no doubt she'll easily carve out, at the very least, a decent modeling career.

    I admit, I might be thinking too optimistically about this, but a remote possibility is still a possibility, right? :^^;:

    Nattsumi has announced on her Google+ that her last performance will be on June 4th. Hopefully her team will give her a nice send off.

    Re: Team K - Matsubara Natsumi (Nattsumi)

    Another day, another under appreciated 2nd gen departs. It wasn't so long ago that they were unusually populous for such a long lived team, and now down to the level of 1st/3rd gen.

    I wonder why so quickly? There is a delay in sayaka's departure and barring scandal the older gens tend to wait up to six months before they actually graduate, so as a 2nd gen I'm surprised she is leaving in less than a month. Why not make it to Nissan or even the 5 dome tour? I'm sure girls will bow out during the dome tours, what better way to leave... unless she has plans that necessitate a quick departure.

    Edit: to put another way, I feel she's earnt an opportunity to go out in style, for all the work she's put in. Part of that is sentimentality talking, though.

    Today I was on AnDare for the first time in awhile (*^・з・^)人(^・ω・^*)


    The AnDare family is really kind (hehe)


    I wonder how many times I have left to appear on it~?


    Even though I’m graduating, I want to still appear on there as an MC assistant (*´艸`*)


    And I temporarily went home to sleep and I think that’s going to end up being fruitless~


    That’s because it’s Friday and I’m gonna be staying up late tonight…


    Bye (*^д^*)

    The other day my little brother got angry at the flowers I sent my mom (haha)

    He said “You didn’t get me anything during my special day (*`Д´)ノ!!!”

    He got mad because on Children’s Day I didn’t send him anything, but I ended up sending my mom flowers on Mother’s Day (hehe)


    When I talk with him I’m usually like, “Wow, you’ve really grown up”

    I thought you became an adult when you stopped thinking about Children’s Day!!!


    But I guess I’ll run into this same problem again whenever I have my own kids~


    Well, it’s a bit late tonight, but congrats on Children’s Day!!!! lol

    Yesterday we became station masters for a day at the Sanriku Railroad in Miyako (^^)

    We cleaned the train and watered the flowers ☆

    What a relaxing place~

    The people of Miyako seem quite energetic!

    Yesterday was my last time visiting the area struck by the earthquake/tsunami as a member of AKB, but I would still like to continue activities there after I graduate.

    Heading toward tomorrow is both difficult and fun!!


    I’ll do my best at the Saishuu Bell ga Naru stage today, so I can see all of you smile (*^・з・^)人(^・ω・^*)

    Today was my last day on AnDare.

    Yep, I was with some truly amazing company.

    I was able to appear on there a lot and smile a lot~.

    I’m glad I got to spend my last time there with Shiichan (*´艸`*)

    I definitely definitely want to do my best to work at nottv again.

    And someday I want to appear on AnDare again as well!

    Aah, I’m happy I got to work with such amazing people!!!


    Last I guess is my graduation performance?...

    it's kind of sad to see this girl go, even though she has not really been in senbatsu. she is 2nd gen and i always considered an important part of the AKB i first grew to know (When i first became a fan back in 2010) it's kind of sad to see alot of the members from the begining that helped me grow to love AKB leave (Kasai, Sato Natsuki, Komrin, Sayaka, moeno, & Itano) :( :( we still have one week with her still
