More Details on Komori Mika's and Matsubara Natsumi's Graduation
As previously reported, Umeda Team B member Komori Mika announced her graduation on May 9. A few days earlier on May 5, Matsubara Natsumi had announced her graduation during the [Omoidaseru Kimitachi e] performance of K3rd [Nounai Paradise]. At the time of the announcement the graduation dates were undecided, but now the dates for the girls' last activities have been revealed.
Komori Mika's last theater show will be on June 3, only about a week from now. One day later on June 4, Matsubara Natsumi will have her graduation show. But these shows won't be their last activity in AKB48 because both girls will participate in the handshake event on July 7. This will be their last handshake event and the last chance for their fans to say goodbye.
