Due to the publication of her photo book, Haruka conveys her feelings, “I revealed all the backstage of my 8 years of being an unranked member in AKB48. I wrote my straight-forward feelings of my gratitude towards AKB48, and the struggle of how I couldn’t succeed in the group no matter how hard I tried. Along with my graduation from AKB48, I packed all my thoughts that I couldn’t express until this time”.

On November 10th, a commemorative presentation ceremony will be held at Fukuya Books in Shinjuku Subnade to celebrate the release of “Sonna Ikikata”. Haruka Shimada’s final AKB48 Theater performance takes place on November 30th.
