[do action=”news” title=”Message from Saeed Yokota Erena to fans” source=”http://ameblo.jp/akihabara48/entry-11362824014.html”]
Here we would like to announce that we have received a request from AKB48 12th geneartion Kenkyusei Saeed Yokota Erena that she wants to resign as Kenkyusei of AKB48.
We've already accepted her offer.
We would like to introduce the message from her to fans.
(The following is the original text written by Saeed)
This is Saeed Yokota Erena, 12gen Kenkyusei of AKB48.
I will resign as Kensyusei at AKB48.
One and a half year have passed since I've joined AKB48.
I've experienced a lot of things.
I've experienced precious things that I would never be able to have if I were a normal person.
There were a lot of good moments, as well as sad or frustrating moments.
I'd been trying to achieve a good balance between study and activities of AKB48, but I had a tough time managing it. And as a result, I made this decision.
This year, I will take an entrance exam for a high school and I will focus on studying from now on
I think what I've learned as a Kenkyusei at AKB48 will help me in various ways in the future.
Thank you so much for your support.
The days I've spent as Kenkyusei of AKB48 were so happy.
Until we will meet again some day.
Thank you so much!
AKb48 12gen Kenkyusei (15)

Why now? She joined the Janken Tournament just normally…… orz
She has been wanting to resign from the group for quite some time, but management didn't let her leave the group until the Oympics and Janken tournament……, perhaps??? Man, I don't want this to be real….
She was such a cute girl, kinda like Pekochan…
Why…. She was just normally performing the Stage at Nagoya dome yesterday….
She has wanted to resign for a long time.
Probably it was tough to keep motivated while her peers of the same generation have been promoted one after another…..
I wish her the best luck in her next field…
Because now that new teams will have more than 16 members, which means Kenkyusei will have less chance to perform as Under,
Besides, Ariyoshi Kyowakoku, the rare TV show that gives chance to Kenkyusei to make TV appearances has virtually ended,
It's really tough on the Kenkyusei that were not promoted in the 2nd Reformation…
I often saw her performing “Arashi no Yoru” and “Candy” as Under in team B's stage….
Though she is not my Oshi, this hurts me a lot…
