Yokoyama Yui Joins Team N

On December 19 Yokoyama Yui, member of AKB48's Team A, made her debut as Team N member in the NMB48 theater and performed for the first time in Team N's current stage show, a revival of N1 [Dareka no tame ni]. Yui took over the spot of Matsuda Shiori, who graduated in October, so her unit in the show is now [Rider].

It had already been announced in August during the big AKB48 team shuffle in Tokyo Dome that Yui would be a member of both AKB48 and NMB48, and she has since then been active in NMB48 as a Senbatsu and Shirogumi member in the last single [Kitagawa Kenji] and was selected for [HA!], NMB48's coupling song of  [Eien Pressure], but she had not been assigned to a team until now.

This is not really surprising. Yui wasn't put in Team M or BII when those had spots open, so it seemed quite clear she'd join N. Kitarie's team debut in SKE48 cannot be far now.
