    Just announced graduation at tonight Anniversary stage.

    ....damn....

    edit: I think we can agree that this is natural order of regeneration. SKE48 has lots of adult member that can't remain member forever. Still, my respect to her and her fans for making it this far. Hopefully her agency will take care of her well post-idol time.

    I am sad, but it's been a great run for her. I am still going to leave her in my Oshimen field.

    Thank you, Churi.
    I guess, there is a time, when everybody has to let go.

    Sad. She's been not just my favourite SKE48 member but also my favourite 48group member for a very long time. But yes, it's good when a member has had a good run and is leaving by choice not because they have too. I'm sure she'll do well in the future with whatever she decides to do

    Two news stories and her tweet below:

    SKE48 Akane Takayanagi (27) announced that she will graduate from the group at the midnight performance at the SKE48 Theater in Nagoya at midnight on the 4th. Suddenly at the end of the performance, “I, Akane Takayanagi decided to graduate from SKE48,” reported to the fans. Despite midnight, a big scream came out of the theater. The graduation time is scheduled for spring next year, and she called on her fans, "I'm glad I'll support you for about half a year."

    Her tweet:

    Earlier, I announced that I decided to graduate from SKE48 around midnight at the midnight performance . Thank you for about half a year [more]. Midnight was fun this year.

    I wish her all the best in her future endeavors and she has been one of the most outstanding member in SKE, if not one of the pillars in SKE. (in my opinion) Well, there is still half a year to go till Spring 2020. Wonder if she's able to CENTER a single before she graduates.

    All the best Chuuri-san !!!

    I truly wish her all the best also; she has been my SKE oshi since the beginning, and I have been lucky enough to meet her. She's been a pillar of the group, a true idol.
    I also hope she gets a centre; I sense a giant graduation event for her, which she absolutely deserves. <3

    Thank you Akane.

    I know once this day is coming. Fortunately, I will be in Japan at that time. I hope somewhat I can buy a concert ticket...

    This is probably of little value today or has been told before. However, since the writer was there in person during SKE48 2nd gen audition back in 29 March 2009 and remain close with 48G activity, and Takayanagi as well, for up to 10 and half a year, his testimonies may shed a light to verify some things around Churi.

    Pointer:
    • During final screening of 2nd gen audition, there were 2 phase of elimination, dancing first and then singing on the day after. The name Takayanagi Akane, while strangely impressed the jury, actually didn't truly leave a strong impact and only barely passed the dancing test. It was only during the second day where the miracle comes as Akimoto Yasushi comes to personally oversee the audition (singing test left), heard everyone singing, and leave the venue just within 1 minute after the last screening's over. His word before leaving that isn't recorded by TV?
    "My center candidate, No. 38". 38 is the audition number Churi wore on the audition.

    • On April last year, AKB48 performed "Anna Makino-sensei stage" shonichi. A newly produced stage exclusive for AKB48 by none other than strict sergeant who has been with 48G since early times. Turnout, Makino-sensei herself spilled in her tweet that she originally considered some SKE member to be part of line up. One of the candidate, according to writer interview with her, is Takayanagi, whom she valued highly.
    • Among words uttered by Takayanagi, known for her punchline making machine, one that leave the most impression is her definition of "SKE Ningen(Human)", which think of everything as SKE48 and act for SKE48. This later become one of core fundamental/principle of the group.
    The writer then closed his story with wishes to see SKE Human for one last time on her graduation concert this March.

    Just saw Yuihan in the video and had to check the wiki to confirm that she tried out for SKE48 2nd gen.

    And eliminated in the dancing test. Outdated trivia is this.
