As DiVA is AKB48's sub unit, many fans are wondering what Akimoto would do as a DiVA member, and thus, according to the blog entry, they have received many questions regarding the matter. 

It was also announced that fellow member Miyazawa Sae, who became a full SNH48 member after the removal of her concurrent post in AKB48, will continue her activities as a member of DiVA as well.

DiVA was essentially dead when Yuka graduated and there were no activities from the group for months!

It's not right to have DiVA without Yuka who, IMHO, had the best voice in the group then Sayaka. Now the group technically lost both members.

It's best to disband the group unless Yuka returns. Sayaka will be starting her solo career in acting/tv appearances while Yuka is off doing similar activities esp. stage shows.

Good luck and best wishes to Yuka and Sayaka with their solo careers and personal lives :)

So good to hear. It still won't be the same without Yuka, but I love DiVA so much I'm glad for Sayaka, Sae, and Umechan.

I wonder if Yuka's returning as well? I hope so. This sub-unit has huge potential ahead of them. Sayaka and Yuka can just rejoin AKB during elections every year see if they still have a shot. They don't need to be full members of AKB48.

i hope Yuka stays . . . she was the best singer in AKB . . . at the very least I'd like to see her get a solo
