It is a bad news to AKB48 and AKB48 fans.

Today, AKB48 Team K member Kojima Mako announced she will graduate from AKB48, she made her graduation announcement during Team K solo concert (encore) in Tokyo Dome City on 12 January 2019. 

Kojima Mako was one of AKB48 future stars, Kojima Mako, Okada Nana and Nishino Miki were called 14th generation Three Musketeers, she was also a key member of sub unit Tentoumu Chu!.

Kojima Mako joined the idol group in 2012 as Team K research student, and got promoted to Team 4 in 2013, and transferred to Team K in 2014, and then transferred back to Team 4 in 2015, at last she was transferred back to Team K in 2017.

    Three years ago I thought she will be the ace of AKB48 in the future, together with Okada Nana. Sadly she will graduate soon. Wish her all the best.

    @alex I believe you meant "promising"

  • Comment Link Jsprite Saturday, 12 January 2019 18:21 posted by Jsprite drop the G-bomb so early in the year! Never seen Kojimako so radiant and mesmerizing as in the Produce48 video of "Hand Clap". She certainly has a unique voice and personality. Why she didn't climb the upper echelons in Sousenkyo rankings is beyond me. This is really sad news for fans :(

    This is devastating, how can they let her go?
    This is a miserable January

    First Miki and now Mako...AKS never followed through with there 2013-14 plans. It's like they just gave up on the in-house talent and just relied on sister-groups. Maybe it's why Kawaei & Paruru left so early??

    When Acchan left AKB48 lost is shine
    When Yuko left it lost it's spirit
    When Takamine left it lost it's heart
    When Paruru left it lost it's honestness & humility
    When Mayu left it lost it's smile
    When Sashihara leaves it will lose it's conscience
    When Mako Kojima leaves it will lose it's hope (maybe?)

    I swear to God Mako's time finally here when she began to subs in for NWM and TT senbatsu but then this happened. It's sad to let her go this soon, nothing we can do now. Good luck

    we can only say good luck to her, though.. wish her all the best.
