On January 17th, two Team S members have announced their graduations: Sato Seira and Mukaida Manatsu. Sato Seira will leave in February but she will remain in the entertainment industry after her graduation from SKE48. Mukaida Manatsu instead will leave in March to focus on her studies.

Both girls are among the earliest SKE48 members. As a 1st Generation member, Seira has been in SKE48 since it was formed in 2008. She was promoted to Team KII in 2009 and transferred to Team S during the big shuffle last year. Manatsu is a 2nd Generation member who joined in 2009 and became a member of KII. Like Seira she was transferred to Team S last year. She was SKE48 senbatsu for 11 out of 13 singles.

Sato Seira's graduation announcement
Original Message
I have an announcement to make. I, Sato Seira, will graduate from SKE48. The time of my graduation will be the end of February. As for the reason of my graduation: I have been in SKE48 for 5 years, and I decided for myself that I probably have learned everything that I could learn in SKE48. I plan to continue in the entertainment industry. Unfortunately, I haven't been pushed/supported much, but one day I will become famous, and when I've become so famous that the management people think "Aah, I should have pushed/supported Seira" I will come back here in front of you all, so please support me until then.

Mukaida Manatsu's graduation announcement
Original Message
I, Mukaida Manatsu will graduate from SKE48, too. In my case it will be in March. Since this time last year I started to think about my future frequently. This year I will be a third year high school student, and it is also the year of my university entrance exam. I felt that I wanted to do my best in my studies and that I soon have to take a proper step towards my dream, so I decided to graduate. Exact (graduation) dates for us are yet undecided, we will let you know when we know more. There is not much time left but please support me till the end.
