Oshima Yuko announces her graduation from AKB48 during the 64th Kouhaku
Oshima Yuko announced her graduation from AKB48 when she was performing with the group during the 64th Kouhaku held on New Year's Eve. Right after the group sang their 2013 hit song "Koi suru Fortune Cookie", Oshima suddenly made the announcement that this will be her last Kouhaku performance as a AKB48 member and said that she had sung with gratitude towards everyone. After the performance, Arashi, who was the host, asked Oshima about this decision which she said that was not made known to her fellow members beforehand and she declared that she was going solo using her own name from 2014 onwards.
