Nogizaka46 member Wakatsuki Yumi has announced her graduation.
She released a lengthy blog post where she describes her thoughts about graduating and how her decision to leave took time and was something she carefully thought over. Yumi also mentioned that she greatly enjoyed her time with Nogizaka46 and appreciated the support from other members, staff, and fans.
Wakatsuki Yumi will be graduating before Nishino Nanase, who also recently announced her graduation last week.
Her final performance will be at the end of November.
It seems like Nogizaka46 fans are in for a rather surprising end to the year with several members already having announced their graduation from the group. It’s unfortunate, but it seems like most fans in the comment section for her blog appear to wish her good luck and their support.
More details are sure to come so stay tuned for more information regarding her final performance and what her future plans will be. Thanks for everything Wakatsuki Yumi!
