AKB48 member Nito Moeno announced her graduation from the group.
AKB48 member Nito Moeno made the announcement about her graduation during the team A stage performance held at AKB48 theater on February 14th.
She is a 5th generation member, and she was the second winner in the last Senbatsu Janken Tournament held in September of last year.
The graduation date has not yet been revealed.
She updated her official blog, and explained the reason for her graduation.
I announced my decision to graduate from AKB48 during today’s (February 14th) stage.
I am sorry for the sudden announcement.
I started seriously thinking about the graduation when I turned 20, and I have made up my mind by the end of last year.
I joined AKB48 as a 5th generation member, and have experienced many things. However, recently, I was thinking a lot about my standing position, how I should support AKB48, and also, how it would affect me in a positive way…
However, this place is not my goal after all, and I do not intend to keep fighting as a member of AKB.
I want to graduate, and experience even more things! I would like to try my best to improve my own skills!!
Regarding the date for my graduation, since I definitely want to attend the handshake events for ‘Eien Pressure’, and my 5th anniversary since debut will be on April 28th, it will be after I finish those.
It has not yet been decided exactly when (could be May, could be June…), but while I can stay as a member of AKB48, I want to continue learning many things, and grow myself up. I also want to cherish the time with the members, as well as the time with you fans.
Please continue to support me.
