[News] Watanabe Mayu Graduation
« on: June 21, 2017, 11:45:29 PM »
I know it was posted in the graduation news thread, but I thought it deserved it's own thread, especially given JPH!P's history of Mayu fans. For those who don't yet know, Watanabe Mayu announced her graduation at the AKB Sousenkyou on Saturday, in her 2nd place acceptance speech. She hasn't set a timescale yet for graduation.

You can watch the speech with subtitles, or read the translated transcript here:

Apparently AKB's 50th Single will be Mayu's graduation single. It's released on 22nd November, which is almost a month after her graduation concert, which I find odd.

Seems like her graduation concert will be livestreamed on Chinese site Douyu

There's a video of Mayu announcing this at:

In better quality than Douyu, seems like Sky PerfecTV in Japan will also be airing Mayu's grad concert live: https://www.skyperfectv.co.jp/special/akb48/?mkt=tw_id_20171020WM

It's a trailer for her Sotsocon DVD/Bluray!!! It's really nice! And a well put together trailer - I'm looking forward to the release and re-living the concert again! Mayuyu!!

Mayu's graduation theatre stage (2017/12/26), (special member line-up and setlist) will be released on 2 discs on DVD (5940yen) and Bluray (7020yen) on the 8th February.

Hopefully it will be available from normal retailers as well. Kinda annoying it's not included on the graduation concert set, but that would delay the release I guess. A lot of the unit songs etc are similar.
