Atsuko Maeda, the face of AKB48, has announced her graduation tonight on the final day of the concert in Saitama Super Arena.
She enrolled at AKB48 six years ago.
Since then, she had been in the center position under a lot of criticism and pressure.
Well, the announcement of her graduation must have been a great impact not only for the AKB fans but for Japan's public economy.
Maeda's graduation may be the end of idol war age.
And I wonder how the older members will graduate from the group after her...(^o^;)
