[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.

There's a video of Mayu announcing this at:
