Mariyannu is back!

Following up from our previous post about AKB48 Team B member Suzuki Mariya being ill, the latest update is that she has now recovered enough to return to idol work! :D

Here's the newer post on her blog by her agency Dresscode:
Thank you for your support.
This is an announcement regarding Dresscode's Suzuki Mariya.

She had to stop her activities due to poor health, but starting from today, she will resume them.
Her blog updates will continue from today, as well.

Thank you for your comments.
We apologize for causing worry.

We seek your understanding on this matter.
Please continue supporting us.

And finally the latest post on her blog by Mariyannu herself!
It has been a while.

Over this period I have been taking a break from work, but from today onwards, I will be resuming activities.

I have inconvenienced and worried the fans, staff, officials and members.

At the end of the year, everyone in AKB has daily activities, and for me to be taking a break at this time..
There were the inevitable thoughts of "Everyone is working hard, what am I doing.."

It is regrettable; this was my first time taking a break from work.

To the Kenkyuusei as well, I am sorry for the inconvenience I caused with the sudden announcement.

I will be taking good care of myself. From now on, please lend me your support.

It is definitely a relief that Mariyannu has recovered somewhat, if not completely. I am glad that this situation didn't turn awry or anything serious...with how the idol world works, I'm sure people would have been worried she might be forced to graduate if she spent too long being ill. Not that it's her fault. I feel bad that she has to feel bad for taking a break! Poor health is a perfectly legitimate reason to take a break ._. I hope she isn't pushing herself too hard.

In any case, it's good to see her back!
