Yamada Nana Debuts In Team M
Former Team N member Yamada Nana made her debut as a member of Team M on May 30. She performed Team M's first stage [Idol no Yoake] for the first time taking the center position in the unit [Kuchi Utsushi no Chocholate]. This position, originally performed by Kashiwagi Yuki in B4, had been taken by former Team M member Hikawa Ayame until she graduated in December last year.
Nana's move to Team M had been announced on April 18 during NMB48's Request Hour Setlist Best 30. Her debut as Team M member comes 10 days after her last show in Team N which she performed on May 20.
Yamada Nana's first show in M was also Yamamoto Hitomi's last one. As previously reported, Hitomin announced her graduation on May 1 explaining that she wants to focus on her studies. With her gone Team M has one open spot to fill despite Nana's debut.
