On May 10, SKE48's Team KII held a performance at SKE48 Theater where member Soda Sarina announced her graduation from the group.
Later, Soda tweeted, "I made my graduation announcement during today's show. Last October, I had a concert and stage play overlap. In order to make my dream of starring in stage plays come true, I felt it was difficult to continue doing both. I don't have any regrets as an idol, so I decided to graduate. I was very happy to have met my wonderful fans, the members, and staff."
In November of 2013, while studying at Aoyama Gakuin University, Soda was drafted into Team KII and officially joined in January of 2014. Her graduation concert will be held on June 20, and she will officially leave the group on June 30.
