Yokoyama Yui and Yamada Nana Leave Team N

Yokoyama Yui and Yamada Nana both performed their last show as Team N members on May 20. With this, Yokoyama's concurrency ends and she will be only an AKB48 member from now on while Yamada Nana will move to Team M. During the show the two and Yamamoto Sayaka also performed their unit song [Dazai Osamu wo Yonda ka?] from the NMB48 album for the first time in the theater.

Yokoyama Yui's concurrency had been announced during the Tokyo Dome Concerts in August last year. Since then she was quite active in NMB48. She was senbatsu in NMB48's single [Kitagawa Kenji], participated in the album [Teppen Tottande] and was part of the main cast in [NMB48 Geinin!!2] as well as [Geinin!The Movie]. Umeda Team B member Ichikawa Miori will take over the concurrent position in Team N.

Yamada Nana's move to Team M had been announced during NMB48's Request Hour Setlist Best 30 on April 18. Nana has been a Team N member ever since the team was formed in early 2011 and was always one of the front members. From now on she will have to do her best in Team M.

Both girls made comments about their leave on Google+.

My last show as Team N.
It was really fun.
I remembered the lessons for our first show and I felt like crying.
I really love the "Dareka no Tame ni" stage show.
Yuihan, even though your concurrency ends we are friends, I really love you.
Even Aina came specially for today. Everyone, thanks for all your love.
Even in Team M, please let me still show my gratitude.
Until today, I've spent such a great time in Team N.
Thank you!
