Maeda, who appeared on stage wearing a yellow dress, sang "Flower" and "Kimi wa Boku da" back-to-back. During the MC, she greeted, "Everyone, it's been a while. I'm Maeda Atsuko. It's been a year since I graduated. I am very happy to sing in front of everyone.


Takahashi Minami told Maeda, "It's been a while. You became beautiful." When asked, "What have you been up to recently?", by Kojima Haruna, Maeda answered, "I'm in the middle of shooting a drama for NHK.


Itano Tomomi, who will be graduating from the group on August 27, asked, "Does anything change after you graduate?" Maeda responded, "Even if you graduate, the distance doesn't change.


Afterwards, Maeda sang her new song, "Time Machine Nante Iranai". This will be her first single after graduating from AKB48, and also her first solo single in a year and 3 months.

the dresses don't suit the AKB girls they make them look puffy and short legs. Acchan looks beautiful and very mature compared with the girls

She really has become even more beautiful after graduating. She's glowing! Can't wait to hear her new song, every song she has released has been flawless, I love the style of music she's put out.

She has moved on,but I doubt her management has that's why she is sticking around in AKB stuff.

honestly i think it's come to the point where she's pretty much like elijah wood or daniel radcliffe where it's gonna be pretty damn difficult to move on from what you're most known for

She has moved on. This is a common business marketing strategy called cross promotion. Working together they promote each other. It's perfect for both sides.

I watched 2012 Tokyo Dome Concert so many times it feels weird looking at the 5 first generation girls without Mariko-sama... :'(
