On April 10th, AKB48's Akimoto Sayaka attended a presentation event forANA and AKB48's joint project.

This marked Akimoto's first public appearance after announcing her graduation on April 7th. She talked about her goals saying, "First of all,as an actress from AKB48, I feel like I can contribute to AKB48. They say to pile up experience and see hardships, but I want to challenge various fields while utilizing the experiences I have gained through AKB48."

She also commented on declining participating in the '5th AKB48 Senbatsu General Elections', which will be held on June 8th at Nissan Stadium. "I thought the General Election would be the turning point," she continued, "Since my debut, I often thought about the time I would stand on my own feet. For me, this was my timing."

Aside Akimoto, Watanabe Mayu, Kawaei Rina, Yokoyama Yui, and Suzuki Mariya attended the event. Watanabe, who became the first candidate in the general election, said, "I thought that I should be quick to do it. I felt tense... In any case, I want to do my best this year also."
