Following the approved returns from fan voting for Matsuda Shiori (Shiokichi) and Shimada Rena (ShimaRena), it looks like management is finally going to start the fan voting for the possible return of suspended NMB48 Team N member Yoshida Akari (Akarin). The fans once again will get the chance to vote whether they approve or disapprove of Akarin’s return to NMB48 activities. The voting for Akarin will take place from January 15 to January 21 and an announcement will be made on January 24th at Team N’s 2nd Stage performance.
As I’ve said before, I have really missed seeing Akarin and I really want her to return. Based on how Shiokichi’s and ShimaRena’s fan voting went, I fully expect to see her return to group and hopefully the effects of this whole “scandal” can be laid to rest.
