It's so hard to say goodbye... The time has finally come for Atsuko Maeda to graduate from the J-Pop supergroup, AKB48. Acchan has always been such a focal point of the group, however I'm sure she will prosper in her already blooming solo career. I can't say I was ever "moved" by an AKB48 song, but the new single, Yume no Kawa comes pretty close.
I will definitely miss Acchan's contributions to J-Pop and making AKB48 the sensation that it is. Japanator wishes her the best in everything she does, but team A will never be the same. Atsuko Maeda officially graduates on August 26, directly after their Tokyo Dome shows.
