Jo Eriko Returns to NMB48, Hayashi Momoka Promoted to Team N and Other Surprises Announced

NMB48 finished the second and final day of their 3rd Anniversary Live and this day brought several surprise announcements.

During the evening concert it was revealed that former Team M member Jo Eriko returns to NMB48 as a Kenkyuusei. Jo Eriko had first joined the group alongside the other 2nd Generation members in 2011 and immediately became the ace of the 2nd Generation and later the center of Team M. She graduated from NMB48 in September 2012. She was now allowed back after passing a special audition.

Another surprise of the evening concert was the promotion of Hayashi Momoka to Team N to fill the open spot of graduate Fukumoto Aina. Momoka is a 2nd Generation member and joined NMB48 already in mid-2011, after more than two years as a Kenkyuusei she now became a full member.

Two other announcements had already been made during the noon concert. First, NMB48 will release studio recordings of their stage shows on January 1, 2014. Second, Team M will have a solo concert tour around Osaka Prefecture.
