AKB48 Kashiwagi Yuki: “Mayuyu is the most suitable center”

AKB48 Kashiwagi Yuki  recently spoke about Watanabe Mayu(20) in an interview, saying she deserves the center position due to her “skills, popularity, effort”, and added that if it’s her, nobody would raise any objections.

The group’s 36th single “Labrador Retriever”‘ center position is held by Watanabe Mayu. This is Mayuyu’s 2nd appointment as solo center since “So Long!” in February 2013. This appointment is of great importance as it reflects the management’s expectations on the next ace after Oshima Yuko’s departure.

In the same interview published in 28th April issue of “Weekly Playboy”, Kashiwagi also said that “there is no other choice for center except for Mayuyu…Yuko and Takamina also feels the same.”
