Yuria Kizaki announces graduation from JPOP super group AKB48. This is the next AKB48 member to announce her graduation.
She made the announcement on the radio show AKB48 no All-Night Nippon on April 12th. Present during that show were AKB48 General Manager Yui Yokoyama and Anna Iriyama. For those of you that may be saddened to hear the news, keep in mind that this is a very common event that happens in the lives of these Japanese idols. After they reach a certain age, they graduate from these groups to focus on other interests. Photo source: http://www.hello-online.org.
Kizaki, 21, also used Twitter to express her thoughts about graduating. She said that she was very happy to make this news public with Yokoyama, Iriyama, and everyone else that has supported her. No graduation date has been announced yet. She also encouraged everyone to laugh and cry with her while making lots of wonderful memories. Yuria Kizaki announces graduation after the high-profile graduations of members such as Rena Matsui.
Kizaki got into the entertainment industry after she passed SKE48’s 3rd generation audition in 2009. She transferred to AKB48 in 2014. For some really awesome pics of Yuria, check out her photo book called Peace.
Congratulations as Yuria Kizaki announces graduation and she will have lots of success I’m sure! Good luck Yuria!
