Oshima Yuko to graduate within the year?

30 Oct

Fans are speculating that AKB48’s definite ace Oshima Yuko might be announcing her graduation within the year.

What sparked this off was probably a documentary featuring Oshima Yuko, aired on 20th October 2013 earlier this month. In the documentary, Oshima Yuko confessed to feeling lonely after core members like Shinoda Mariko, Itano Tomomi and Akimoto Sayaka graduated. “I have nothing left to challenge in AKB. There’s nothing to fuel my passion,” she said.

In September, Oshima Yuko wrote on her blog “I can’t keep up with the changes in my environment.”

Is her graduation coming? An insider from the entertainment industry said that chances of it is very high.

“Akimoto Yasushi told Oshima Yuko to announce her graduation at her own timing, meaning he’s given her an approval to leave. Oshima Yuko also talked to her confidante, ex-Team K member Akimoto Sayaka about her graduation time.  Akimoto Sayaka is getting a big break by appearing in a stage play next year. Indeed there’s limited time to train as an actress if she continues to stay in AKB.”

Actually, during a reflections session for the dome concerts this year, Oshima Yuko told the juniors “You guys have to think about what you want to do! Don’t think that the everything will be fine even if the seniors are no longer around!”. Seems like her graduation is drawing near..

    I don’t know man. She might want to stay a little bit longer until the next sousenkyo to keep Sasshi at bay. As much as I want to see her stay in AKB48 until the group reaches its 10th anniversary, it is time for her to go 😦 I wonder how will the 48G do without her.

      Probably well. There’s still Mayuyu and others who will be able to draw people and don’t forget the 12th-14th generations still have large untapped potential.
