She's taking economic class at Waseda, one of the most prestigious university in Japan, so she should quit to focus on schooling, especially since she never ranked in election and she never appear on any thing. This is for the better~ good luck

Now please more nugu or mid ranking members graduate.....AKB is overcrowded as fuq and there's no benefit staying in this group beside treating it as a part time job. I'm actually surprise management don't mass grad girls from 4-7 gens that aren't popular and can't rank
