She announced her graduation on July 19th, her last stage performance was on August 17th. Now she pursue her dream of becoming a sportscaster, her dad was a former professional baseball player. I guess that should help. The thing I hate about her graduating is it likely put an end to “French Kiss”, although they release only one single in the last 3 years.
I didn’t take notice of her at first, it wasn’t until around late April 2011. Just before the release of French Kiss single “Kakkowarui I Love You!”. That I really started to take notice, and did I ever. The thing I always will remember about her is, with all the members in AKB48 no one had the same birthday as me. She was the closes. I’m not sure if that’s still the case, it was like that for the first couple of years. I’m greatful that I was able to see her in Washington, D.C., AKB48 concert.
*Edit (Aug. 21) – Hey what do you know, I just found out. “French Kiss” will be releasing an album on October 14th, support them buy a copy or two, I will be. Everything they did was great. A good place to buy – http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/AVCD-93299 .
She was great Captain for Team B.
18. JiaMin Zhao (SNH48 – Team SII).
I’m going to China for 2 weeks, staying the 1st week in Shanghai. I really do want to see SNH48 in concert at there Theater, I’m trying to order overseas ticket. I think it’s my best chance of getting tickets, Wish me Luck. Regardless what happens, I’m gonna visit the SNH48 theater.17. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team 4).16.

She has graduated from AKB48, had her graduation concert at Super Saitama Arena on August 2nd. Made her last Theater performance on August 4th, I will miss her. I still remember the first time I saw her in Washington, D.C., on March 2012. I didn’t know who she was, she just got promoted to Team 4 a few days ago (I didn’t really follow Research Students back then, I still don’t really). I thought she was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, I just had to find out who she was. Her graduation actually made me cry.
I wish her the Best Of Luck.Although I really didn’t see much of them alot together, after she became a regular senbatsu. In the beginning they were unseparable, I’m talking about her and Juri Takahashi. Right up there with Yuko and Kojima, as my favorite AKB48 couple.
She’ll have her graduation concert during SKE48 Summer Concert at Toyota Stadium on August 30th, Ricchan, Mocchi and Rena. Just like 2 years ago, but to alot lesser extent.8. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48 – Team BII).7. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain and AKB48 – Team K).6. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).5. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).
Although she’s moving up very rapidly, almost like no one has before. Since I started “My Favorite AKB48 Family Ranking”, it took her 9 months to reach the top 10 (Who wasn’t ranked in the first one). Which is 3 months less than Mai Shiraishi, I checked. She’s hit a brick wall now, she’ll likely will remained at this position for a long while. Unless a member ahead of her graduates.4. Kei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team N Captain).3. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).
She’s Immune to scandals.
