AKB48’s General Manager, Takahashi Minami, announced her graduation during AKB48’s 9th Anniversary show. She stated that she plans to graduate by December 8th, 2015.
Takahashi Minami is one of my favorite members of the group therefore I am sad to see her go. However, I was expecting this time to come sooner or later. She has been part of the group since its conception so it was only a matter of time she would want to start a new path in life.
I wish Minami all the best in her future endeavors. Yokoyama Yui will take on the role of General Manager upon Minami’s graduation.
