AKB48 Team A Kenkyuusei Shoji Nagisa has graduated from the group as it has become difficult for her to manage her activities and schoolwork.
Shoji passed AKB48's 16th generation audition in 2016. On the group's official website, she commented, "The two years of activities was my treasure. I am full of gratitude to everyone who supported me, the members, and the staff. Thank you very much. From now on, I will do my best while treasuring the many memories I received from everyone."
As Shoji graduation was dated November 4, there will be no graduation concert for her. Also, she will not participate in her scheduled handshake events.
