  September 10, 2012

According to Watanabe Production’s official website (http://www.watanabepro.co.jp/company/), Osawa Tsuyoshi, a member of the board of directors at Watanabe Pro, an executive who’ve been in charge of AKB48 at this agency, has been dismissed from the current position.

*Some netizens say Watanabe Pro’s president Watanabe Miki stated that he has been dismissed from a member of the board of directors for the company at press interview at Kinokuniya book store.

There’re further weird things going on around this agency and AKB48 as Yagami Kumi aka Kuumin and Nakamata Shiori aka Nakamatta~’s profile pages have disappeared from Agency’s official website.

*Previously, both were on the website as their transfer to the agency was announced at SSA concert in last March

Further rumor says this suggests souring of relations between Watanabe Pro and AKB48 and Yukirin’s graduation from AKB48.
