SKE48 Team KII member Takeuchi Saki will graduate from the group on May 31.
Takeuchi joined SKE48 as a sixth-generation member in November of 2012. After graduation, she will become an employee of the talent agency Zest, Inc., which she currently belongs to. She explained, "I thought of various ways to remain in showbiz after graduation. I've been in this business since my first year of middle school, and when I thought about what I want to do next, I wanted to be on the supporting side rather than in showbiz. That's why I decided to work for Zest."
Takeuchi is the first SKE48 member to become an employee of a talent agency. This is also a first for Zest, Inc.
Takeuchi's graduation concert will be held sometime in May. More details will be revealed later.
