    i've lost count on how many SKE48 members are going to graduate this year.This is getting out hand just like what happened in 2013.The management can't just rely on Jurina alone as the face of SKE48 today, but there are also girls who deserves to stand out and be at the center.

    I think it has more to do with Keyholder's acquisition of SKE48 than it has to do with Jurina in any way. Infact many of her band mates love her for her reliability and popularity which in turn benefits them a lot. Just see last year's ssk results and you will see what I mean. Also most importantly Jurina is the reason many people still follow SKE and if people did hate Jurina for nepotism or whatever, they would just vote someone else in her place or just abandon SKE for her anyways. I hear many people say Jurina is that ,Jurina is this, but these people never talk about why she hasn't dropped in rank in ssk for so many years, its almost like there is a battalion of storm troopers voting for evil Jurina from outer space, lol.But then of course most of these people are just Sakuratan fans flocking here and there after discovering her on Produce48 who can't understand why in the world their beautiful princess Sakura can't win the centre position over 30 plus looking Jurina because after all Nothing beats Beauty in K-Pop, while the rest just can't stand her confident self which they most probably will never be. But then again these guys have no slim idea of how AKB works and how AKB fans care about what's inside more than whats outside and how looks while a good thing to have no doubt is far from what determines the person's liability and popularity. Btw I didn't implicate you here,its just that I am fed up of this make believe Evil Jurina witch-hunt. And Yes SKE now will Have to look for someone else now that Yunana has left them dumbfounded.

    With what I have experienced from last week are rabid international fans who insult 46/48 groups. I don't know where they come from but like someone mentioned above it has to be Sakuratan and Hinatatan fans who don't understand how the fandom in Japan works.

    Whether it's about 48G or Keyaki. They seem to hate them so much. I cheered the rise for Sakamichi before but my opinion has changed after I watched Sakamichi TV episode on AKB48 Show. Sugai and Sakurai are both Takamina oshimens. They respect AKB48 so hopefully the fans do too including their sister groups.

    @Old AKB Oshii
    oh no,i didn't mean that i hate Jurina,she's the core of the group and i know she works hard for the group since Rena left and i appreciate her effort;it's just a fact that the management need other members to shine(which the group is known for best dancers and singers in the 48G,imo).

    Wow, I haven't check this site for a couple of wks, looks like a hell of lot are going on. Paul, don't let the bad eggs keep your down, you are doing fine.

    Anyway, the whole keyholder acquisition definitely has a lot to do with this exodus of ske members. Another reason is a most of the ske girls are from aichi & surrounded perf., a lot of them came from pretty well off families. That's because Toyota & Mitsubishi Aviation make aichi their manufacturing hub. Therefore aichi attract a lot of other companies; robotics, IT, finance, import/export etc. Their unemployment rate is one of the lowest in japan.

    A lot of ske girls left because their family want them to concentrate on their education. Cases of point, Goto Rara took 6 months off & was just accepted to Aoyama Gakuin University, one of most exclusive university in japan.

    @yy I agree that Keyholder acquisition has a lot to do with this mass graduation

    I really doubt this has anything to do with Keyholder, as a lot of these grads are health related. Like Isshiki, Kohaku, and Miipopo

    Kohaku has missed a ton of events, didn't show up to the recent laguna fes appearance, and has always been plagued by fevers.

    Okada Miku got a serious eye ulcer where she can't even have a grad stage because the bright lights would effect her negatively.

    Yumana and Mikoto are both old and not very popular, I think they felt they achieved everything they were going to at their age with both being in the team for 8 and 10 years respectively. Kaori is a given.

    The two more unexpected ones were probably Juna and Yuna, but apparently Yuna was thinking about it since late last year.

    I think this is just par the course and some teams like S will struggle until 9th gets promotions so they'll just have to hang on until then.
