Before we start the topic, we need to face the sad news.

Fujimoto Mitsuki, who demonstrated the amazing back summersalt on Kohaku Utagassen’s stage, annouced her graduation from SKE48.

She is currently a KKS of the group, and this news came only a couple days after she got promoted to team S during SKE48 Spring concert series at Nagoya Gaishi hall.


Fujimoto Mitsuki on SKE48 official blog:

I have one thing to tell you today.
I, Fujimoto Mitsuki, will graduate SKE48 and withdraw from all  activities as a member by the end of this month (April).

I’ve been studying about childcare, since before I joined SKE.

As I am studying more, the desire to make a living as a nursery teacher becomes stronger.

The promotion announced at the concert on the other day gave me a final push to draw the conclusion.

Although I was very glad about the promotion, it also provided me with a good opportunity to ponder upon my future path.

It started to a little bit out of hands to keep up with both activities as SKE member and my studies. Thus I had to make a decision.

Therefore, I told my thought to my manager and the theater manager on the day after the concert, and I announced this here on the official blog because I wanted to tell this to you as soon as possible.

My last theater performance will be on April 29th (Monday), KKS theater performance.


Fujimoto Mitsuki didn’t submit an application for the upcoming election, and didn’t speak about the reason for that either. Thus, it had been rumored she will graduate soon.

*On April 14th, a mysterious person left a message on 2chan that she will graduate 6 days later.

But we had good news, too.
