AKB48 Iwata Karen

AKB48’s Iwata Karen has announced her graduation from AKB48.

It was announced during their performance at Eve wa Adam no Abarebane on January 5.

With the new year comes new graduations, and sadly it seems like AKB48 is up. Thankfully it seems like the graduation has a happy note since Iwata mentioned that she wanted her graduation to be positive so hopefully everyone can keep supporting her in her future plans.

Her graduation date and final performance haven’t been announced, but good luck Karen!
