Mori Ayaka graduates from NMB48

As announced in the NMB48 Theater on June 13, Mori Ayaka will graduate from NMB48 on June 25. The official reason is that she wants to focus on her studies.

Mori was part of the stage unit Rider in NMB48's 1st Stage Dareka no Tame. Some people might think about the 'Rider curse' now. If you wonder what this curse is: all original 9 AKB48 members who performed the song Rider graduated from the group afterwards. Now another girl who performed it will graduate. Let's hope that this does not continue.

I wish Mori Ayaka all the best for her life after graduation.

Stage Units:
N1: Rider
N2: Ame no Doubutsuen
N2: Fushidara na Natsu

Mori Ayaka’s official graduation statement
I have an announcement to make.
I, Mori Ayaka, will graduate from NMB48 on June 25.

It became difficult to balance the activities in NMB48 and my studies and now I want to give priority to my studies.

I am really sorry for this sudden announcement.
When I start my activities again, I will work hard in order to be able to stand in front of everyone, so I would be happy if you watch over me kindly.

Thank you.
