On TBS's music program "Kayou-Kyoku!" which was live broadcasted on June 11th, AKB48 member Shinoda Mariko talked about her future activities after her graduation.


As we reported back on the 8th, Shinoda announced her graduation from the group next month while at the event for the vote count results for AKB48 32nd Single Senbatsu General Election, in which she was ranked 5th.

 

On the show, Shinoda explained that her activities after graduation will be mainly fashion related works, as she said, "Things I want to do started to change. I love fashion, and enjoy modeling." 


When SMAP's Nakai Masahiro, who serves as the MC for the show, asked if she was willing to continue singing, Shinoda answered him with the comment, "I will not do any singing activity."

 

Shinoda will be graduating from AKB48 after the group's live concert at Fukuoka Yafuoku! Dome which is scheduled to be held on July 21st. However, since AKB48's 32nd single (title unknown) is set for release in August and Shinoda was ranked 5th place in the election, she is one of the Senbatsu members to sing the upcoming single.

 

Regarding the matter, she said that she would be participating in its music video, since the filming would be held this month, and would also be a part of other promotional activities until July 21st.

FINALLY! it's time for Mariko-sama to shine outside AKB48 while doing things she loved the most. I always thought that Mariko is a great fashion designer and model, not a singer. I look forward for her bright future!

Why so many members graduate in the same year? I can't bear with this :( however, it's a chance for new member to shine

Why everyone on the idol girl group always stop their music career...I don't understand T^T

Anyway, Mariko reserve this ,,, she is a fashion icon so it is great if she is a professional model.

Fighto!!

This, is really saddening to be honest. She is one of the original members and has always been featured in almost all of the AKB singles. It will be hard for fans to witness the 33rd single with her presence in it. Wish her the best of luck. xx

For me the faces of AKB were Yuko, Acchan & Mariko. With 2 of the 3 gone and Yuko not able to maintaining #1, I rapidly loosing my interest. However it's Mariko own decision, so all the best for her, hopefully she's going to pursue modeling and walk the runway with the TGC.

Too bad Mariko-sama is not going to keep singing. She has a great voice. But RICORI is certainly her priority.

Yay! I was really worried that she wouldn't be in the upcoming single. I'm really sad that she is leaving and won't be singing anymore; I just hope that she remains in the public eye and enjoys what she does after AKB48 (fashion and modeling - yes, please!). Wishing the best of luck. :)

I hope she doesn't do a Lily Allen and completely disappear from public life... It's bad enough she won't sing any more...

Wah, sad that Mariko is gonna be graduating! She'll do fine on her own, though. I'll always support her! Can't wait to see what she has planned in the future. I'm sure she'll do fine on her own and become successful!
