Yui Yokoyama Takes Over As AKB48's General Director
Yui Yokoyama was appointed the new general director of AKB48 during a special ceremony held at the AKB48 Theater.

The special ceremony was held on December 8. Minami Takahashi, AKB48's former general director, passed the torch to her successor.

A declaration of succession was signed between Takahashi and Yokoyama during the ceremony, officially transferring the responsibilities of the position. The Sonkatsu Megaphone was then passed off to Yokoyama.


In a speech made after becoming the general director, Yokoyama declared that AKB48's only rival is AKB48 itself. She challenged the group to rise to even greater heights than before and become legends.

Takahashi has served as AKB48's general director since August of 2012. When she announced last year that she would be graduating from the group, she named Yokoyama as her successor.
