Announced last night, SKE48's Shinkai Rina and Mori Sayuki have been demoted from Team S to SKE Kenkyuusei. The official reason is that the two girls want to concentrate on their studies more.
Well the good news is that they haven't been demoted for doing something wrong. The girls will be taking a short break from SKE to concentrate on their studies and will come back later, at least that's what I want to believe. But I can't help to think that this reason might not be true and it's a cover up for something they did or they might not have been performing up to standard. I hope this is not true. I wish both of them the best of luck in their studies and hope they can return back to Team S soon.
Update: Sad news. Shinkai Rina and Mori Sayuki have decided to graduate from the group to focus on their studies.
