On January 19th, NMB48 second generation member Okada Risako updated her official blog stating that she will be graduating from the group.
Okada wrote, “When I entered NMB48, I was determined to manage both work and school. When I was chosen as a member, lessons started and I got to participate in performances and handshake events.”
She continued, “I got to meet everyone at events, and I got to work with the members I love. Everyday was like a dream, and I learned so many things. However, my feelings towards my education became much bigger.”
Okada’s final performance was held yesterday, which was also her first performance of the year as NMB48.
