      Is that hand placement trendy or ??? I’ve always seen photos of female idols having their hand placed on their chest.

      soOO…she won’t be there to promote it? someone else will be center for her graduation song during the promo…? lol

        I know, confusing right? I’m guessing she will have her grad con but still promote this single until the end of the year and possibly end her activities with a Kohaku performance.

      Goodbye to my last fav AKB48 after her graduation,I will officially say goodbye as thier fan

        That’s honestly pretty sad. I think it would be great if you looked towards the future generations, and found a new Oshii. After all, there are some wonderful girls who just need someone to support them. For serious if you’re a Mayu fan, you should look into Komiyama Haruka, or perhaps even Kojima Mako! I think you will rediscover the group in a new light. The only thing better then falling in love with something, is falling in love with it again!
