AKB48’s Takahashi Kira Announces Graduation

AKB48 Takahashi Kira

AKB48 Kenkyuusei Takahashi Kira has announced her graduation from the group.

A specific reason why she will graduate has not been released.

Takahashi Kira joined AKB48 as a Baito AKB member in October 2014 before graduating in February 2015. She became a finalist for the AKB48 Group Draft Kaigi 2015 and was drafted to Team B on May 10th, 2015.

Her graduation will take place on April 11th, with her last handshake event taking place on March 20th.

Another day, another AKB48 graduation.

It’s unfortunate that so many talented members leave the group but the fact that there are only a few main groups and so many aspiring girls who wish to be part of them means that many of them will leave before they get a chance to debut.

Regardless, we wish the best of luck to Takahashi Kira and hope she can use her talent in some other way.
