Her graduation ceremony was on December 26th, I will miss her and I wish her the “Best Of Luck”. Very few members in the AKB48 family I enjoyed following more than her.

Some say she’s boring but at times she tried to be entertaining (or funny), you could sense it was all an act it just wasn’t in her personality. But she was really cute about it, and I thought it was entertaining and funny to watch.akb48-haruka-shimazaki-love-diary-on-samurai-elo-magazine-00111.

I think she might be my new AKB48 Member that I like to Fantasize about regularly, I haven’t really had one for the longest time at least in AKB48. Maybe not since Ricchan I don’t think that lasted as long as I think, cause I really can’t remember too much about it.et_042016_voz48-copy_089. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).819b83828.
