NMB48 Okita Ayaka promoted to Team M + 5th Single and tour announced

NMB48 finished its Osaka prefecture tour Osaka Juuban Shoubu on May 31st, and the final day brought several announcements with it.

First of all, Kenkyuusei Okita Ayaka was promoted to Team M. She took the spot of Kodakari Yuuka who graduated in April due to health problems. Okita Ayaka was one of the two 1st Generation Kenkyuusei left who neither made Team N nor M. Now Koyanagi Arisa is the only 1st Generation Kenkyuusei left.

Additionally, it was announced that NMB48's 5th single will be released on August 8. The single will come in the usual 4 types: A, B, C and Theater Version. No other details are out yet.

Apart from that another NMB48 tour was announced. After the Osaka Prefecture Tour, the group will now tour the whole Kinki/Kansai region with one concert in every prefecture of the region. The temporary title for the tour is Kinki Juuoumujin Tour (近畿縦横無尽ツアー, roughly translated: Kinki do as one please Tour).

The dates are:
7/18 Shiga Prefecture, Otsu Shimin Kaikan
7/27 Kyoto Prefecture, Uji City Culture Center
8/1 Nara Prefecture, Nara Centennial Hall
8/8 Wakayama Prefecture, Wakayama Municipal Auditorium
8/15 Hyogo Prefecture, Kobe International House International Hall

Congratulations to Aapon! I am so happy she was finally promoted!
