[AKB48] NTV Best Artist 2012

Check out their performances here:

Note: I feel so happy this night. I don't know if it's just my fangirling imagination or Nyan-nyan really read my tweet on her >.< I really, or should I say, I'm craving to see KojiYuu's pic because all I can see on her and Marichan's twitter is their picture! err! It's not I don't like Mariko, it's just I ship KojiYuu more than MariHaru XD

I'm thinking a hundred times if I will tweet her or not because I know that she will not read it or just ignore it or whatever. haha ... but then, I give it a try. =D

After the NTV Best Artist ended, there's a lot of updates including Yuka Masuda's Graduation on twitter. I even saw first Yuuchan's blog update. So while I'm scrolling lazily because I'm thinking that there will be no KojiYuu pic for tonight, I suddenly saw this tweet and I read it like a child who's learning how to read:

Yu-u-ko-ri-su ..

Hahahah! Then I realized that it was Yuko! So I opened it quickly and viola! I'm right! It's KojiYuu! >.<

[AKB48] Yuka Masuda Announced her Graduation/Retirement

AKB48's Team K, Yuka Masuda announced her graduation through her BLOG.


Tomorrow, Shukan will publish an article. The details is about me staying over at DA PAMP’s ISSA-san’s house. Even though the article has some incorrect details, this is also a truth.
To do such an hasty act that made people misunderstood, I’ve created trouble. I’ve let the fans who supported me, team members, juniors, staff and my family down.

What can I do in the future? I thought a lot, and to take responsibility, even though it is sudden, I’ve decided to graduate from AKB.
The fans who supported me since the past, to graduate in such a manner, I’m apologetic. As the scandal made everyone worried, I’d like to apologize to everyone so I wrote this entry.
