Sashihara Rino Transferred to HKT48
Few days ago an article popped out about Sashihara Rino having a boyfriend and that she sent nude pictures to him. Today at ANN, Sasshi denied sending such pictures but she didn't deny he was her friend either.
And just a few moments ago at ANN, Aki-P announced that Sasshi will now transfer to HKT48. Rather than penalty like suspension, Sasshi will be transferred to HKT like a reset.
I have no idea what he is trying to do. This isunfair to both Sasshi and HKT48. HKT being used like a punishment method, while Sasshi who has worked hard for AKB being transferred like this. Even though Sasshi was the one at fault, it also feels like HKT is being punished too for no reason. While this could be a strategy to help build up HKT's popularity, the way Aki-P has decided the method is just nor right in my opinion.
