So, it appears that Takamina's graduation will be at Yokohama Stadium (outdoor), which holds 30,000 people. Also, her graduation day will be split with another event on the same day, AKB48 Group East & West Taikou Utagassen.

 

Last theater performance, from what I can see, is April 8th.

 

Spoiler

 

 

I got this from Stage48 forums. Some members there are complaining to management for how dumb this is.

As for there being complaints, I don't know what they're complaining about as I don't read that forum to be honest. But, as far as I can see: Postponement, postponement, postponement... And it being a stadium, meaning bad weather could delay it again.

 

The date however, is neat: 4/8.

Thanks!

My Japanese is limited ^^; I realize with the weather, too. Looks like they didn't learn from Yuko's graduation...

More than neat, it is also Takamina's birthdate.

As much as I love and respect her, this graduation postponing gets really annoying.

Girls always should graduate in the theatre(s). That's where they usually debuted and that's where they should end their idol/48 careers. Full circle. The date of April 8 makes perfect sense for Takamina. I see no reason for complaining there.

 

 

Just keep the stadium concert independent from the graduation stuff and all will be well. :)

I do hope we don't see a repeat of what happened to Yuko-san. The date is fitting though, in more ways than one.

I feel like I should say something, but honestly, words fail me.

Of course, there’s always the standard “Sotsugyou Omedetou gozaimasu”, or the timeless “Thank You”, but when we’re discussing a presence, an asset, a legend like Takahashi Minami, well, that just doesn’t cut it.

There’s really nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said better by others, but I’ll try anyway.

Congratulations on your graduation, and for a job well done.


This has been said over and over again, but 48G wouldn’t be the 48G it is today, without the amazing work you’ve put into keeping the group running. Your role in the group was nothing less than crucial. Not only were you a critical link between Management and members, you were, to almost every member out there, a guardian, mentor, consultant, disciplinarian and role model, condensed into a fiery little package.

Most importantly, you have, even before her appointment as General Manager, functioned as a fixed point for 48G, a locus around which all component groups can rally around for strength, unity and confidence. At every twist and turn, you have acted to pull 48G together. You have been the voice of reason and emotion that has led the entire 48G family through thick and thin. When the situation seemed bleak, you were always ready with words of encouragement to keep 48G going. Conversely, when things went smoothly, you would keep the members in check, stopping them from becoming too complacent.

At this point, a particular latin phrase comes to mind.


Si monumentum requiris, circumspice.

Translated, it means “If you seek a monument, look around you” - a perfect description of what 48G is to you, and what you are to 48G.


Ever since you made it known you were leaving the group, things started to become rather different. Not better, not worse. Just… different. We’ve had a year to get used to it, watching from the audience seats as you oversaw the smooth transition of leadership to your appointed successor. Yokoyama’s been doing her best to win over the hearts and minds of members and fans, and while she’s still rough around the edges, she’s proven thus far to be a good choice - perhaps the best we have, even, and for that, I thank you.

As for myself, while I never got the chance to actually see you live on stage (came pretty damn close last month, but missed it by that much), I will say that I have no regrets on that front. That I have seen the impact you have left behind, the countless individuals you have inspired, and the legacy you have built in 48G, is more than enough for me.
After all, if anyone were to ask me, “Who is Takahashi Minami, and what has she achieved?”, I already have my answer.

If you seek a monument, look around you.
Si monumentum requiris, circumspice.
