SKE48's Wakabayashi Tomoka Announces Her Graduation
Today at the end of SKE48's KII performance member Wakabayashi Tomoka announced her graduation. Her reasons for graduation are so she can concentrate further in her studies. She'll be graduating at the end of July.
Tomonyan who had auditioned for SKE48's 1st gen audition but didn't make the cut so she tried again later and got in as a 2nd gen kenkyuusei and was later promoted to KII.
I wish Tomonyan good luck in her future studies but this means more vacant spots in SKE and first one for KII. This is the 5th graduation from SKE this year alone, following Ono Haruka, Yamada Erika, Mano Haruka and Imade Mai. The management still hasn't promoted girls to the vacant spot. I didn't expect anyone from KII to graduate at all right now, but wish you luck Tomonyan!
