Orito Aisa and Yamamoto Yuka are both 6th Generation Kenkyuusei who joined SKE48 about a year ago in March 2013.
Yamamoto Yuka's graduation announcement
I, Yamamoto Yuka, have decided to graduate from SKE48 at the end of March.
I think I surprised you and also the other members with this sudden announcement, but as a result of lots and lots of worrying I have decided to graduate.
After my graduation, I will move towards my dream and make an effort at my studies.
There is not much time left for me, but I will do my best, so please support me.
Orito Aisa's graduation announcement
I, Orito Aisa, will graduate from SKE48, too.
I love SKE48 and I also love this stage show, but while working here I also found a new dream and from April on I will be a high school student. There were a lot of things I worried about, so I decided to focus on my studies.
I will graduate in April, and, as I have done before, I will work with all my power until then, so please support me till then.
