Some Information About The Song Mae Nomeri

The career of Rena Matsui with idol group SKE48 has now ended. However, SKE48 wanted to make sure that they would get the chance to see Matsui perform for one last time. SKE48 has released the music video for the song Mae Nomeri. Mae Nomeri was released on August 12, 2015. The video was said to have been shot on the island of Okinawa the day after Matsui announced her intention to graduate from SKE48. The single was released in 4 editions each for both the limited and standard. All of the versions also include a follow-up song called “Seifuku wo Kita Meitantei.” This is sang by the group Dreaming Girls originally. The Type D version of the single has Matsui’s solo song called 2588 Nichi. This is in reference to when Matsui passed her audition to the day of her graduation concert. The Type C and Type D versions of the single has the first half and last half of 2588 Days: Documentary of Matsui Rena.

Why Is The graduation of Rena Matsui Important?

The graduation of Rena Matsui has followed the graduation of Rina Kawaei. Kawaei graduated from AKB48 on August 4, 2015. But unlike Kawaei, Matsui did not graduate because she’s not able to bring herself to attend handshake events. Matsui graduated because of a desire to explore other areas of the entertainment business. Why is Rena Matsui so special in Japan’s entertainment industry?

Rena Matsui Is Important Because of How Popular She Really Was to AKB48 And SKE48

The first reason for Matsui’s popularity is because of how high she has ranked in the group’s General Elections. In the first election, Matsui was ranked at #29. But she gradually made her way up to the top. In the 2nd through 4th elections, Matsui was ranked at the 11th or 10th position. In the 5th Senbatsu Election in 2013, she rose all the way up to #7 before ranking in the top 5 of the Senbatsu Election results in 2014. In 2013, Matsui received 73, 173 votes. Matsui has also made a name for herself by releasing two solo photo books. But now that Matsui has graduated, this news is great for her. She got one more chance to sing on an SKE48 single before leaving to pursue a career as an actress.

A Brief Synopsis of Rena Matsui's Career So Far

The career of Rena Matsui goes back to July 2008 when she was chosen to join the group. Team S would make its debut on October 5, 2008. Matsui was also chosen to be in the main lineup for the single called 10 NEN Zakura. Her first photo book Kingyo (Goldfish) was released in March 2012. In April 2013 after SKE48 was reorganized, Matsui was appointed as captain of Team E. In March 2015 during a concert at the Saitama Super Arena, it was announced that her position with girl group Nogizaka46 would be cancelled. It is a very common practice for these members to hold positions in more than one group. Examples of Japanese idol singers that have had positions in more than one group are Asuka Kuramochi, Aki Takajo, Yui Yokoyama, and Yuko Oshima.

Rena Matsui Turns Her Focus To Acting

Good luck to the beautiful and smart Rena Matsui as she is working on building her acting career. The first such news that I heard about Rena in regards to acting was when she had a lead role in the movie called Gift in 2014. If history is any indication, Rena’s success in SKE48 and AKB48 is a sign of bigger things to come.
