Keyakizaka46 member Yui Imaizumi will be graduating from the group, an official announcement made on the group's website stated.
Imaizumi will not be participating in the group's nationwide tour starting August 11. Her last activity will be on August 15 when the group releasing its 7th single "Ambivalent".
Although her activities have effectively ceased, she is still officially a group member for the time being. An exact graduation date will be set at a later time.
Imaizumi's graduation comes during a time of decreased activity with Keyakizaka46. The idol has been absent from lives and events for the past several months.
Due to scheduling conflicts, Imaizumi did not participate in Keyakizaka46's new single "Ambivalent". It is the first time she was not included on the group's A-side single. However, she did provide a solo song as a coupling track.
After graduating from the group, Imaizumi will be continuing to work as a solo artist.
This is the first time a member of Keyakizaka46 has graduated from the group.
