On January 25, AKB48 members Mayu Watanabe, Minami Takahashi, Yuko Oshima, and Haruna Kojima appeared at a CM press conference for the part time job recruiting web service ‘Baitoru’.


In the new CM, titled ‘Graduation‘, Takahashi, Oshima, and Kojima have the line, “I will graduate.” Only Watanabe doesn’t have the line.
So reporters asked her “Please imagine it’s for the CM and say ‘I will graduate’.” Watanabe replied with embarrassed look, “It’s still early for me. I will say it when that time comes.”

Regarding the “graduation announcement” in the CM, Takahashi reflected, “I’ve never said it before, so I was really nervous.” Kojima added, “I wasn’t used to saying it, so I had to retake it many times.” Takahashi also said, “Maybe it was like a rehearsal for Yuko”, and Oshima covered it up with a laugh.

In the CM, Watanabe shows a surprised expression when her fellow members make their “graduation announcement”. “I played my part while imagining if they were to really say it,” she said. Oshima also commented on her own graduation announcement during the ‘NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen’, “I’ve seen it once, so I wasn’t too surprised. I was mentally prepared.”

Baitoru’s new CM will air nationwide starting on January 27.


What the members saying is “We decided to graduate from usual method of searching for part time jobs, because smartphone search system is much better and convenient way for us!”
