On January 11th, NMB48 member Koyanagi Arisa announced her graduation from the group during Team M's stage performance 'Idol no Yoake'.
Koyanagi confessed, "Since my first year of high school, I started to have a desire for clothing and accessories related work. Now that I'm my third year, I had to decide on what course I should take and started thinking about what I should do. I thought about it a lot, but my desire for working with clothing and accessories was number one."
Koyanagi considered continuing her activities with NMB48 while attending a vocational school, but she thought that "both would be done halfway." Thus she decided to graduate from the group.
According to NMB48's official homepage, Koyanagi's graduation date and her future activities will be announced once it's been decided.
