Mayu Watanabe Gets Asked an Interesting Question

It was after the ceremony when she was asked by reporters when then AKB48 member Haruna Kojima was going to graduate. Watanabe responded by saying that she didn’t know when this was going to happen and that she was pretty nervous. Kojima born in 1988 was at that time the oldest member of AKB48 and it was predicted that she would be the next member to graduate from the group. But she had said many times that she would not graduate from the group. She had made this statement during the group’s yearly General Elections and on various radio shows. It was also at an event that former member Tomomi Itano expressed concerns about Haruna graduating. She mentioned that she really expected to witness a graduation like never before, as if it was coming out of the sky. Watanabe eventually graduated from AKB48 after the New Years Eve yearly singing contest called Kohaku Uta Gassen on December 31, 2017.

Mayu Watanabe Helped to Create a New Menu for the AKB48 Cafe and Shop

So what is the other interesting aspect of Mayu Watanabe’s career? Back in December 2012, Watanabe and 6 other AKB48 members had created a new menu for the AKB48 Café and Shop (well that’s when the story was first reported). An audience of 100 fortunate fans was able to try two of the food items. One of them was Mayu Watanabe’s mushroom and pork miso soup as well as Mariko Shinoda’s Curry Panda Plate.
