Sayaka Yamamoto To Leave AKB48, Focus on NMB48

AKB48 NMB48 Sayaka Yamamoto

Sayaka Yamamoto has announced that she will be graduating from AKB48.

She will be instead focusing on NMB48, where she serves as the team captain for Team N. The decision comes as a result of her wanting to focus on the group after the graduation of Miyuki Watanabe.

While sad, it seems like a natural evolution of the group as members shift and leave to let newer generations show off a new set of skills.

It will be exciting to see just how this new NMB48 does since it seems like they are on the correct track with their latest single Amagami Hime.

Best of luck Sayaka Yamamoto, lead NMB48 well!
