SKE48 member Suda Akari will graduate from the group in September.
This was announced on May 30th during Team E's 'SKE Festival' held at SKE48 Theater. Her graduation concert will take place on September 24th at Nippon Gaishi Hall followed by the group's 14th anniversary concert on the 25th.
On her reason for graduating, Suda explained, "It's because I wanted to encounter my new self. I felt that I shouldn't fear failure and challenge."
Suda passed SKE48's third generation audition in November of 2009. She was a senbatsu member for the first time in the group's fourth single '1! 2! 3! 4! Yoroshiku!' (released in 2010), and was the center for the first time in their 26th single "So~Yu~Toko Aru Yo Ne?" (2020).
