First I would like to say this is a sad time…
Kasai Tomomi, Who I really like, Will be graduating..
Chiyuu appeared alone in front of fans, and first thanked them for being able to make a solo debut with her single “Masaka (= No way!)” on the 26th. She then stated,
“There is one more ‘Masaka’ announcement to make. I, Kasai Tomomi, am graduating from AKB48. I joined AKB48 when I was 14, and have been in the group for 6 and a half years. It made me learn a lot of things. Now that I received a chance for a solo debut, I would like to send songs with my own ability from now on.”
The details on Kasai’s graduation, including when it would be, will be announced as soon as it’s decided.
Chiyuu… Why :’(
Now to brighten everones day up… JKT48 anniversary, CD Debut, Team J announced!
