Nao Furuhata: her career so far

Nao has been a member for about half of SKE48’s singles. She has been a member for several of the A-side and B-side songs for the singles starting from Gingham Check all the way up to Green Flash. Gingham Check would be the second time that Yuko Oshima would be named as the center for a single. She would eventually graduate from AKB48 in June 2014. Nao would sing on the B-side single for “So Long” called Waiting Room. Then Nao would sing on the B-side single for Sayonara Crawl called Bara no Kajitsu. Bara no Kajitsu is the second song on the theater edition for Sayonara Crawl and it is one of the best songs in AKB48 history. Then Nao would sing on the B-side singles for Heart Ereki and the long named 34th single. She would also sing on the B-side single for Mae shika Mukanee (35th and last single appearance for Oshima), Labrador Retriever (A-side single), Kokoro no Placard, Kibouteki Refrain, and Green Flash. Furuhata has also been selected to appear on the supplement for UTB Magazine. She would get the chance to appear in 20 pages of photo shoots for that magazine. In addition to this news, Kei Jonishi of NMB48 will have her right to have her own solo gravure photo shoot. For Nao Furuhata to achieve this kind of recognition before turning 20 is a milestone and something she will probably remember.
