Sora Miyuka's Message
As was announced, I, Sora Miyuka, will graduate SKE48 at the end of May.
I worried a lot about this and as a result I want to focus on my studies from now on and so chose this way.
I am sorry for surprising you.
I want to treasure the short time I have left.
From now on I will work hard towards a new goal so please support me.
