HKT48 Team H member Yabuki Nako will be graduating from the group.
This announcement was made on October 16 during HKT48's one-man live 'HKT48 11th anniversary LIVE 2022 ~Mirai e no Message~' held at Makuhari Messe. She plans on putting an end to her activities next spring.
In addition, it was announced that HKT48 will abolish its three-team system, and will start their activities with just Team H and Team KIV from February.
Yabuki joined HKT48 as its third generation member in 2013. She's previously held a concurrent position with AKB48's Team B, and was also a member of IZ*ONE.
