On June 24, AKB48's official website announced the graduation dates for members Shinoda Mariko, Itano Tomomi and Akimoto Sayaka.


The three will hold separate graduation performances at AKB48 Theater in Akihabara. Shinoda will part ways with the group on July 22, Itano on August 27, and Akimoto on August 28.

Prior to their graduation performance, the members are scheduled to hold graduation ceremonies. Shinoda will hold her ceremony on July 21 at Fukuoka Yafuoku! Dome, Itano on August 25 at Tokyo Dome, and Akimoto on August 22 at Tokyo Dome. 


The last member to hold a graduation ceremony at Tokyo Dome and hold a graduation performance at AKB48 Theater was Maeda Atsuko, who graduated from the group last August.

I just hope no more of the senior members leave.It would be tragic if the likes of Koji,Yuki,Mayu and Yuko left as well.Here is hoping it does not happen.

It is so sad to see et more top stars of AKB48 go and all three of these have been fabulous and given such great entertainment to everyone all the time they have been there.Wish them all every good wish for success and happiness in all they do.

It tooks me by surprise that Mariko is graduating so soon, I mean, her announcement was almost a month ago and she's already leaving. Anyways, I wish the best to all of them, and I'm quite sure all of them will be successful, because I think their career is already settled down in the biz.

I'm so glad they each are getting their own ceremonies. All three of them have been important pillars that held AKB. They will be sorely missed, but I know for a fact that Mariko will excel in fashion, Tomochin will stay strong with her magazine modeling and hopefully continue her solo career, and I know Sayaka will continue to succeed in theater and hopefully she will eventually decide to start a solo singing career as well.

I hope Sae is able to attend Sayaka's concert graduation and theater graduation.  I'd like to see a second generation reunion like they had at Tomomi Kasai's graduation.  I'll be sad that they are leaving the group but I wish them all the luck in their future.

Sayaka won't fade. She's worked with some well respected actors and actresses and has been praised by them as well. She also is a very versatile performer. The time she was not in senbatsu probably helped her post AKB career because she was promoting more of herself rather than AKB.

now AKB is down to just 3 first gen members :(


watching the No Flowers w/o Rain documentary and seeing the six first-gen girls crying at the Tokyo Dome concert was touching and even more sad now knowing that Tomochin, Mariko and Aachan are/have graduated


I'm gonna miss them in AKB
