Yokoyama Yui Named AKB48’s General Director

Yokoyama Yui Takahashi Minami

Yokoyama Yui has been named AKB48’s new general director, replacing Takahashi Minami due to her graduation from the group.

Complete with an actual contract that was signed by both of the members, it seems like it’s official now:

Yokoyama Yui General Director

It’s a nice ceremony that passes on the responsibilities and Yui seems quite capable of taking care of the group as General Director, especially as she declared that the only rival AKB48 had is AKB48 itself.

Congratulations Yokoyama Yui!
