We previously reported that NMB48 2nd generation Research Student, Shimada Rena, was caught in a purikura scandal with her (then) boyfriend, Nobu. NMB48’s management responded by encouraging fans to continue supporting Shimada.
However, following the announcement, a flood of new pictures were released - this time with several couple shots, including one where Rena was seen kissing. The purikura says things like, “I'm only your... princess”, “Together forever. Let’s be happily together forever, okay?”.
According to the date on the purikura, they were taken on January 29th, 2011, which meant they were snapped before Shimada knew whether or not she passed the 2nd generation auditions.
Considering how this is the second time photos have been leaked, would NMB48’s management be forced to take action (especially now that there are photos of the couple kissing)?
