The biggest and most surprising moments might be the transfer of Sashihara Rino to HKT48 and the graduation of Maeda Atsuko, who is known as the ace/face of AKB48. After Team Shuffle at AKB48 in TOKYO DOME ~1830mの夢~; AKB48 in TOKYO DOME ~1830m no Yume~ on August 2012, the team has total 22 members with Shinoda Mariko as captain (Takahashi Minami become general manager of AKB48). This team called "Shinoda Team A". NMB48's Kotani Riho once joined the team as concurrent member during August 2012 until April 2013, before her position revoked. However, Yagura Fuuko from the same group "replaced" her and joined the team officially on June 2013. There are also HKT48's Kodama Haruka and SNH48's Suzuki Mariya joined as concurrent member of the team. They're currently performing Team A Waiting Stage and announced will have new stage on May 2014. Due to Shinoda Mariko's graduation on July 2013, Yokoyama Yui is chosen as the new team captain, as well as the team called "Yokoyama Team A". Read more on Last.fm.
