It's been announced that SKE48 Team E's Iguchi Shiori and Kaneko Shiori will be graduating from the group.
Regarding the graduation, Iguchi explained, "I decided to graduate as I wanted to do what I want to do from now on." Kaneko also stated her reasons, "This year, I was peacefully able to graduate high school, and starting from spring, I became a college student. It will be 4 years since I came to Nagoya in my third year of junior high. I believe this is a good time to take the new step forward." The two will perform in their last show on April 22 and will part ways with the group after a handshake event on the 29th.

Kaneko joined the group as a fourth generation member in September of 2010 and has been a member of Team E since December of the same year.
