AKB48 group top members Yamamoto Sayaka and Kashiwagi Yuki announces they will not participate AKB48's upcoming General Election. Yamamoto Sayaka and Kashiwagi Yuki are ranked 4th place and 5th place in last year's generation election respectively.
I don't have any high hopes for this upcoming election, but it might be for me that a lot of new members coming into Senbatsu with Sashihara might being a lower rank.
Are they going to announce their graduation this year?
I feel Sayaka had a chance to take the top spot this year. As a Sasshi oshi I feel a little more hopeful for that record 4th #1 and only 3 in a row.
