Kodakari Yuuka’s graduation on G+:
I am graduating from NMB48.
I’m really sorry for the inconvenience.
To be honest, my health has been a concern and I’ve always been worrying about it.
Continuing this way, I was troubled and scared.
I thought about my future
And I need to prioritize my health.
My family and the staff has had many discussions with me.
“Why don’t you take a break?” they said to me.
But I hate doing things without giving my all.
With these feelings,
Whether it’s the hardworking members or everyone cheering for me with all their might,
I thought it was unfair
And a nuisance, so
I decided to graduate.
To the fans that have been cheering me on.
your calls to me on stage
All of it is what keeps me propped up.
I’m thankful from the bottom of my heart.
To the beloved members that have worked hard together with me.
If there are tough times, I will look at everyone’s smile
And be happy.
Truly, thank you.
From now on,
With my final year of middle school
I will work hard while keeping up with my health, so
Please watch over me with care.
Team M Captain Shimada Rena’s comments on G+:
Today, Kodakari Yuuka announced her graduation.
Yuuka was an uncompromising person who also gave double the effort.
Everyone relied on her.
Everyone loved her.
To me, who suddenly became captain
And was filled with many things I couldn’t do
Nobody but her could keep me reassured.
Based on that, what should she do?
That worry, she asked me directly.
But, her decision to graduation, I didn’t know.
Yuuka said apologetically,
“I thought about talking to you, Rena-chan, about this
Rena-chan is always taking things upon herself.
Because I knew this,
I couldn’t say it to you.
When she apologized,
With Team M,
The captain duties,
Being rushed with it, and hurried about it
And having no time,
I was furious with myself.
I had so much regret that I felt like I died.
Yuuka’s determination was strong
To the point where she didn’t tell anyone around her
And she could decide her own path
But, such a big decision
We didn’t worry about it together
We didn’t think about it together
Will her steadily health return?
Yuuka was someone who always did the impossible
so I’m worried.
If you become well
Once again, chase your dreams
Do as your heart desires
The Yuuka that is chasing her dreams
With a twinkle in her eyes
That’s the Yuuka I like.
I like the kind, warm Yuuka.
I will continue to watch over you
Even after this
I will create a team,
One that will make a healthy Yuuka think
“I want to return!”
Title: YuuyuuThis is Jou Eriko, aka Jou.During this stage performanceKodakari Yuuka-chan
AKA YuuyuuMade a graduation announcement.
I was really surprised with the announcement.
My role model
And my rival
Yuuyuu is amazing at dancing,
so I absolutely loved it when she danced.
Yuuyuu’s dancing ability was
Something I dreamed of having
She always took great care of me
When I didn’t understand the choreography
She taught me until I understood it
When we had just entered NMB
And for the times I wanted to remember
I asked her a favor
“Can you film the choreography for me?”
Even though she should have been tired
With a smile, she said
There is no one that worked harder than Yuuyuu
She would only do the impossible.
But that Yuuyuu,
I really like her.
If it’s Yuuyuu,
Then I think
She’ll be okay by herself.
She said she graduated
Because of health problems
I want her
To quickly fix her health
And to come back
If it’s Yuuyuu
She’ll be okay!
I believe in Yuuyuu.
I want to watch over her.
Until the end.
I love you, Yuuyuu!
