has announced that she will be graduating from NMB48
Watanabe announced her graduation on April 13 during NMB48's Team BII theater performance.
The idol teared up as she addressed the audience about her graduation. "For me, every day has been nice, and I've been very happy...I'm not used to talking so honestly, and I didn't come prepared to talk about my feelings, but my heart is full of gratitude thanks to everyone

There has been speculation that Watanabe would be graduating since last month. When AKB48's Senbatsu General Election was announced, the idol declined to participate, sparking rumors of her impending departure.
Watanabe has been a member of NMB48 since October 2010 as a 1st generation member. She also held a concurrent position with AKB48
's Team B since March of 2015.
