NMB48 Team M Kodakari Yuuka to Graduate

NMB48's Team M member Kodakari Yuuka announced on April 13, that she will graduate from the group. The reason for her decision is poor physical health.

This announcement comes at a bad timing. Team M will start their first show [Idol no Yoake] on May 5th. They have to find a replacement for Yuuka quickly.

This is also the third graduation announcement from NMB48 in less than two weeks after Ishikawa Kokoro and Hara Mizuki , but this time it is not a Kenkyusei but a full member. Even though quite a few Kenkyusei have left NMB48 in the past months, Kodakari Yuuka is only the second full member to leave, after Mori Ayaka graduated from Team N in June last year.

Kodakari Yuuka's comment.

I have something to tell you all.

Joining NMB48 there were painful things too, but everyday was really fun and I felt satisfied.

But I, Kodakari Yuuka, will graduate from NMB48.

To be honest, I was very worried about my physical condition the whole time.
Continuing like this, I felt anxious and, honestly, very scared. Thinking about my future, I thought I should give priority to my physical health.

But I consultated my family and staff several times and they told me 'Why don't you just rest a while?'.

But I don't like doing it halfway, and even if I would continue my activities with this feelings it would be rude and a trouble to all who really support me everyday, so I made the decision to graduate. I am sorry for causing trouble.

The presents, letters, calls during the shows, blog comments from the fans who always supported me, were all my support.

Thank you a lot.

The members I always cried, laughed and worked hard together with: When there were hard times, I felt good again when I saw your smiles. Really, thank you.

From now on, I want to make the one year left of junior high life a fulfilled one while at the same time recover from my poor health. So please somehow watch over me kindly.

Kodakari Yuuka

So many graduations from NMB48. That makes me really sad. I wish Yuuka all the best for her recovery.
