NMB48 Miura Arisa Promoted to Team M
On March 20th, Team M finished their first tour with a concert in Osaka City and the tour finale came with a surprise announcement. Kenkyuusei Miura Arisa was promoted to Team M.
Miura Arisa is a 3rd Generation Kenkyuusei who joined NMB48 in early-2012. She was one of the few 3rd Generation members who weren't selected for Team BII but she kept working as a Kenkyuusei and was now rewarded. With her promotion only one 3rd Generation member, Takayama Riko, is left among the Kenkyuusei.
Apart from the promotion, the tour finale also included a graduation ceremony for captain Shimada Rena who will graduate on April 7 with a final theater show.
