It was announced on NMB48's official blog that Team M member Hikawa Ayame will take a break from NMB48. She has a leg injury and needs time to rest and do rehabilitation.
There is no information on how long this break might take.
Hikawa Ayame's comment:
Since about 3,4 months ago, my leg injury and physical condition hasn't been good and there were times I was abesent from work and stage shows. I think if I continued to drag on (this situation) like this I would cause troubles, and as a result of talking to the staff, I will take a short break.
It's inexcusable and arbitrary, but please give me a bit time.
I don't know when I will be able to come back, but I will do my best at treatment and rehabilitation to get well as fast as possible.
I am really sorry.
I wish her all the best for her recovery and hope she will be able to come back soon.
