Yuko Oshima (25) has updated her blog on the 4th and talked about her reasons for graduating from AKB48 and for announcing it at the Kouhaku. 

This is Oshima's first update in the new year. Along with her new year's message to her fans, she also proceeded to apologize by saying, "I think I surprised everyone after suddenly announcing my graduation at the very end of the year 2013."

(Continued from >>1)

The reason why she chose to announce her graduation at the Kouhaku and not the AKB Theater is: "The Kouhaku has always been a dream and an aspiration for me, even during the time when we were not yet called AKB48 but Akihabara 48. It is a very special and memorable place for me. And because I wanted to properly bid farewell to that special place from that special place, I decided to announce my graduation at the Kouhaku Uta Gassen".

Oshima's goal now is "to be an actress who could represent Japan". "I don't think I'll be able to get any more chances to participate in the Kouhaku after I leave AKB". "If I do get that chance, then that would be the time when I have properly accomplished my goals and dreams after graduating. I am hopeful that I'll be able to join the show someday, as 'Yuko Oshima, the actress'--as a judge...". She also did not clarify when she will officially graduate and said, "It's not clearly decided yet, but I will immediately announce it once it's finalized".

About the reason for her graduation: "I have strongly felt the urge to take on the next step. I'm not saying that there are no more possibilities with AKB, it's that this is the last step that I could take as a member of AKB, and it is also my duty to make way for the members who will be taking over the next generation". She also revealed that producer Yasushi Akimoto's (55) words of advice helped push her towards making this decision, which was: "If it's a choice between taking the easy way and the hard way, then take the hard way. Choose the path of thorns".

"For everyone of us who has stayed as a group, going solo is the path of thorns. I now have the same resolve that the previous members have had." "Even when the circumstances change, my beliefs and my feelings will never change as I proceed towards a new stage in my life."

Poor Sabu-chan

Didn't you guys call him "rougai"* before the Kouhaku?

* (troublesome elderly)

You wotas should keep cheering her on even after she goes solo
7: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:09:06.09 ID:PwuvAqzu0
Maybe she really intended to announce it at the JRA.
But EXILE won so she had no choice but to announce it at the Kouhaku w
336: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 15:19:46.28 ID:m4iG9cPo0
EXILE winning the JRA was already decided from the start
341: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 15:20:58.17 ID:9PnCULwS0
だから司会が上戸だったんだよね?w シラけたわw
And that's why Ueto was chosen to host the event, right? w That was really a letdown w
11: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:10:47.89 ID:HuPQmKNO0
What about her implying that the Kouhaku is a more important place than the AKB Theater?
I think fans are allowed to be angered by this.
398: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 15:37:15.70 ID:f4KYL/0v0
It's really contradicting
12: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:11:04.97 ID:AMZ8tEYEO
I wonder what she'd do if she becomes popular as a solo artist and gets invited to perform at the Kouhaku
13: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:11:29.29 ID:XD7fzRk40
Then she should've just done it at the AKB Theater, right?
18: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:14:30.86 ID:6hrjJ1oP0
Which means Watanabe and Kashiwagi will be the main members?
That kinda lacks punch.

A foolish act that has put a damper on Kitajima-sensei's Kouhaku graduation

22: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:14:48.05 ID:2+61LlbK0
But she still hasn't decided yet when she'll graduate, right? www I can see this written on her forehead: "I want people to pay attention to me so I can earn my paycheck one last time!" ww
Oshima-san's so evil www 
373: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 15:28:57.49 ID:moTuInDG0
It will probably be at the Kokuritsu.
26: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:16:40.50 ID:HbntM4an0


It really makes my heart race when I think that the songs of these girls which were composed by a 50-y/o geezer, is on YouTube to be seen by people around the world







And the people who are moving Japan's music industry

* EXILE's HIRO who won the JRA grand prize after announcing his retirement
* Saburo Kitajima who got the final place at the Kouhaku after announcing his retirement (from the program)
* Yuko Oshima who has announced her graduation after everything else was decided. That was Yuko Oshima's last stand. Yuko Oshima, you're really wonderful (laughs).

What an annoying girl, she's always saying "actress this, actress that"
Do us a favor and realize that you're not suited for it.
You're seriously a nuisance.
39: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:18:30.98 ID:r/4VYLIu0
And she's a fool for not yet realizing that she's being criticized because the Kouhaku isn't a special place for herself alone. They have the AKB Theater, right? Why not do it there?
42: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:19:24.20 ID:2+61LlbK0
This is pathetic www so pathetic www
44: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:19:32.65 ID:tIWZaaWmO
* The JRA is not possessed by EXILE
* The Kouhaku is not possesed by Saburo Kitajima
* It's ok for Yuko Oshima to announce her graduation. It was a surprise, so what? 
* And I've been rooting for AKB because of Yuko Oshima. And since she's leaving, I'm also going to step away from AKB. Thanks Yuko.

「はあ?何やってのこいつ?この身の程知らずが」と思うだろこいつ 全国民がお前に対して思ったことだ 一生気づけず認めるわけにもいかず行くんだろうな
Your kouhai who just joined the industry suddenly takes the mic at the Kouhaku and tells the entire nation, "I'll be leaving the group within the year!"

Anyone would think, "Huhhh? What the heck is she doing? She doesn't know her place". That's what the entire nation thinks. She'll probably keep living for the rest of her life without noticing nor accepting this.

47: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:19:56.86 ID:jZ4nHEEV0
It's the conceited tengu-sama we're talking about here. She probably thought that this surprise will add gloss to her career, but she hasn't realized that it's actually been tarnished by it.
48: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:20:00.48 ID:9TDPeRYB0
It would have been much funnier if dumb-witted Ayase followed it up by saying, "Oshima-san will be graduating within January".
52: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:20:25.71 ID:3sCOXAvt0
I don't hate Yuko Oshima, but this act wasn't what you'd call a success.
My entire family was at a loss for words there.
55: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:20:35.68 ID:i15jG6pW0
I don't think it's possible for ex-AKB members Maeda and Oshima to become huge actresses who would become the face of Japan
58: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:21:11.21 ID:z7ew8AGu0
I haven't seen anyone on 2ch trying to defend her...
94: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:27:59.88 ID:CeagTe3pO
There are a lot of gross ones on the Yuko Oshima thread in the Chika Idol forums who are standing up for her
60: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:21:50.12 ID:2+61LlbK0
And this shi++y girl actually polluted that important place that she's referring to wwwwwwww
And even shoving aside Sabu-chan, one of the dons of the industry in the process www
Just how much is she full of herself? If it really is an important place then she should've shown some consideration.
67: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:22:53.87 ID:EbH8V3wnO
She just updated~

And saying that the next time she'll be at the Kouhaku is when she's a part of the panel of judges as an actress? www 

This girl is hopeless w

70: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:23:22.13 ID:gw1/sulC0
Wow, she's talking as if she's so high on the pedestal looking down on everyone w
105: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:30:02.92 ID:HbntM4an0
女優ってw 自分に酔いまくりじゃねえか。しかも審査員席って。ああああああ キモい
An actress? w She's so full of herself. And in the panel of judges at that? Ahhhhhhh, so gross.
320: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 15:17:15.60 ID:bYsJXxHj0
What's with this woman with the wrong idea? w
Actresses at the Kouhaku judges' panel are either from the Taiga drama or the morning drama.
69: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:23:07.68 ID:P/4Fe5A00

It really gives a bad impression of her if it really was her idea because it looks like she wasn't able to read the situation.
Akimoto and NHK who were in the position to stop her from doing it are fools too, though.

73: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:23:34.66 ID:sX21NXhM0
So you guys are fine with Saburo Kitajima turning the event into his own? w
He's just an old man way past his heyday, who hasn't even had a hit song for 20 years now.

101: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:28:59.86 ID:TWkf3KSMO
It's not like he announced it at the Kouhaku.
If Oshima said it beforehand then I don't think she would have been bashed to this extent.
146: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/01/04(土) 14:38:57.85 ID:+rp0beyE0
There was already this concept about Saburo Kitajima doing it at the last day of the year, which made it more acceptable.

She's too obsessed with herself
