This was decided as Nishikawa requested the withdrawal. She will end her activities after Nogizaka46's special event for their 7th single "Barrette" on March 22nd.

Nishikawa, who was a former AKB48 Kenkyuusei, passed Nogizaka46's 2nd generation audition held in early 2013. She made her stage debut during the group's '16nin no Principal' at Akasaka ACT Theater on May 8th.

I wonder if she'll take the same route some other drop-outs have...

First she leaves AKB, then Nogizaka. If she wants to be in a group, she has to learn to stick to it. Of course, I don't know her circumstances. She may have a perfectly good reason. I just wish she would at least stay long enough to be promoted.

She was fired from AKB for taking a photo with a fan outside of an event. When she came back to Nogizaka, she said in her introduction that she figured a lot of people wouldn't be happy about her return, but she wanted to work hard anyway. I'm guessing it just got to be too much backlash and that's why she's leaving. It's really a shame, I was hoping she'd make a good comeback.

@quag Ah, that's right. I thought most people were accepting of her return. Ayarin was successful, and that was a dating scandal. This was just a purikura. Really a shame...
