STU48 Ship & Theater Scrapped For 3rd Time + Yui Kuroiwa Declines To Remain In Group

The planned cruise ship and theater for STU48 has been scrapped for the 3rd time.

On October 1, the group started a blog to update fans on the progress of the group's dedicated cruise ship. The first entry explained that the 3rd iteration of the ship had been scrapped, and that a 4th design was in the works.

The set back is the latest in a series of delays that have plagues STU48 since the its formation. The group was originally slated to debut during the summer of 2017. This was pushed back to November 2017, and pushed back again to January 2018.

Although plans for the group's ship are starting anew, no delay in STU48's debut has been made at this time.

Following the latest delay, group member Yui Kuroiwa decided not to remain with the group. She will officially leave the group on November 18, months before the group actually debuts.

Netizens' response to the latest delay has largely been critical, with many blaming the group's management and Yasushi Akimoto for being incompetent.
