AKB48 Kenkyuusei Kanazawa Yuuki Graduates
10th generation AKB Kenkyuusei member Kanazawa Yuuki just announced her withdrawal from AKB48 Kenkyuusei. She will be leaving due to personal reasons. Nothing else has been stated. This brings the number of 10th gen Kenkyuuseis left to 8.
This makes Kanazawa Yuuki the 5th Kenkyuusei to graduate after the "Sashihara under curse". Those who fell due to this curse have at one point replaced Team A member Sashihara Rino when she was absent. 1st member to graduate was Uriya Akane and she was Sasshi's under in Team B 3rd Stage [Pajama Drive]. Hayashi Ayano, Imai Yurie and Ishiguro Atsuki followed and all 3 were Sasshi's under for Itoshiki Natasha in Team B 4th Stage [Idol no Yoake]. And now Kanazawa Yuuki too has fallen. She replaced Sasshi in the group songs for Team A 6th Stage [Mokugekisha].
Now this is why I choose not to follow Kenkyuuseis.....
