NMB48 Team N member Odan Mai has announced her graduation from the group.
Odan made the announcement on September 10 during Team N's 'N Pride' performance. Then on the group's official blog, she wrote, "I, Odan Mai, will graduate from NMB48. During my seven years of activities, I experienced numerous sad and frustrating things. Moreover, I also experienced happy and enjoyable moments. I was given the opportunity to see very beautiful scenery."
She added, "The only regret I have is that I wasn't able to make the single senbatsu. However, through this experience, I discovered a new side of myself that I didn't know, and I feel I was able to everyone that too."
On her future, she stated, "While continuing to study body massage and yoga everyday, I wanted to work in a field involved with beauty. As such, I wanted to take a step outside of NMB48 to find something that I really want to do."
Odan's last handshake event will be on October 12 at Pacifico Yokohama. Her graduation concert and last day of activities will be on October 13 at NMB48 Theater.
