Kawaei Rina hinted at graduating before stabbing incident happened?

27 May

Kawaei Rina, one of the members injured from a stabbing incident during a AKB48 handshake event on 25th May, had apparently sent out a mobile mail the day before, causing fans to speculate about her graduation plans.

Contents of the mail: “I have alot of things to say. But if i reveal it now, those who hate me will think that i’m going to extremes because of the upcoming elections. So i’m not saying it yet. When the elections are over, i will decide.”


Update: Kawaei denied the rumors via a telephone interview on TV today. She explained that the mobile mail was actually referring to her poor placement in the sousenkyo preliminaries. She was hesitant about talking about it before the sousenkyo final results, so she had wanted to wait until the elections are over. She is shocked that people have taken it out of context.
