    Acchan (Maeda Atsuko) hasn't left the entertainment industry. She's still active as an actress, and has been since before she graduated. She is scheduled to appear in three different movies and a drama series in 2018, and was in three movies and four drama series in 2017.

    She was already beautiful but she became even more beautiful, in a more demure way, as she grew older.
    I like it ♡ Welcome back, kawaii

    Jsprite: all those idols you mentioned are still active in this industry. After her graduation Maachan retired from show business and only came back now.

    Anyway I'm so happy for her. She's among my favorite graduates
