All current SDN48 members to graduate

According to the latest blog post on the Official SDN48 blog by the SDN48 manager, all current members, 1st to 3rd generation, will graduate in a graduation concert on 31 March 2012.

A translation of the blog post by aakun on Everyday48 Forums is as follows:

The other day in a SDN48 Show, Captain Noro announced the above:
since SDN48 was formed, 2 years and 2 months have passed and ever since the beginning,
we have always received warm messages and support from the fans.
we would like to use this chance, and thank the fans one again.
For all the SDN48 Members to follow our different paths we aim in this life
all the members together decided to graduate from SDN48
With all the current members in a Goodbye Concert to be realized in 2012/3/31, we will finish our first chapter as SDN48.
for all the members to make our individual dreams come true
we will begin a journey to a new stage.
from now on too, just like always until now, please keep supporting us.

Original blog post:

This is definitely sudden and unexpected. SDN48, while not as popular as its sister groups, has been doing reasonably well. As such, many were caught off-guard. I do not know of any rumours or other reasons for this mass graduation to happen, so for now it would be best to take their word for it and that the members have decided they wanted to do something else.

I am still in shock. It was not too long ago that I watched SDN48 live in Singapore and there were no hints of what was to come. Had the girls decided then and put on a fantastic show anyway, or had they not decided anything? This is a huge decision and I would think it had been decided for weeks at least. Yet, I still remember Ito Mana prompting the audience to visit the theater in Akihabara in future. It certainly didn't seem like they were thinking of graduating. I'm also angered because I believe this is in part thanks to creator Akimoto Yasushi neglecting the group in general and the girls may have felt there wasn't any way to develop further.

further tweets from Melos no Michi says that they knew about the graduation from a month ago. this is a sad day indeed. And a terrible April Fool's Joke, AkiP. And I'm still waiting for CD and DVD versions of their first stage. >|

If it's true: WTF.

Still thinking it might be some excellent trolling.

Maybe they're graduating to the next stage, aka A NEW CONCERT SETLIST :D.

If not, fuck Aki-P. He puts shit out with NMB (Oh My God sucks), and is making all those stupid foreign groups. He doesn't even use his adult talent which is better than even AKB48.

Yeh I was thinking about the same thing too, maybe they're 'upgrading' themselves as a whole, since Aki-P loves to give us surprises.

I really start to wonder what he is really try to do with so many girls right now, it feels like a waste for the girls to be waiting and waiting for their turn to shine.

it's too rude ... still he's too unpredictable ~

why are they liquidating this group? idgi, the AKB empire seems to be rolling in money and SDN just brings in more...unless Akimoto is budgeting (what with the, like, overseas 48 endeavor that was announced like last week).
kimivalkyrie 15th-Oct-2011 05:07 pm (UTC)
It's ridiculous because Akimoto hasn't bothered to release a CD version of SDN48's first stage or a DVD of it. And it's been high in demand for a while. :|

I'm hoping this is some kind of troll and the girls will be graduating and (re)"auditioning" for new themed teams.

The 2nd stage working makes me think it's a troll, but i'm mostly grasping at straws.

It's not fair to SDN for this to be true. :C

* looks at her GAGAGA single * This better be a joke =_=

It's funny that when Nogizaka46 was announced, SDN had decided not to loose against NGK46 but now this..

I didn't follow their music but I wish all the members a bright future ahead.

rebirthreborn 15th-Oct-2011 05:43 pm (UTC)
Let's see if there will be a 4th gen for this group and if they could beat 46 (which I think it shouldn't be a prob atm)
