On September 29, AKB48's Fujita Nana announced her graduation during Team K's group performance 'RESET' at AKB48 Theater.�
After the show, she wrote on her blog, "I announced my graduation from AKB during today's performance. I'm sorry if I surprised you." She continued, "I joined AKB48 as a 10th generation member when I was 13. I am now in my 9th year.�I've thought about graduating a few times, but I wasn't able to do it because I wanted to graduate after I made my mark in AKB48."
She shared that she decided to graduate "when I successfully finished Gekidan Renacci's 'Romeo & Juliet' in which I played the role of Romeo." Fujita, who aims to become a stage actress, explained, "I've been in several plays outside [of AKB48], but in 'Romeo & Juliet,' I felt that I had contributed something to AKB48. At that time, I felt that there was nothing left for me to do in AKB48."�
After graduation, Fujita wants to challenge herself to pursue her dreams of becoming a stage actress. She declared, "I want to do my best to make my dreams come true. I also want to become a person who can show an example to the�other members.�I will continue to stand on stage after I graduate, so I promise that a day will come when I will be able to see everyone again."
Fujita won the '6th AKB48 Group Janken Tournament' in 2015 and became the 13th member to make her solo debut with�"Migiashi Evidence" on December 23 that same year.�
Her last handshake event will be on December 23. The date of her graduation concert will be announced when its been set.�
