Haruka Kodama announced her graduation from AKB48 Group through Mobame services (Mobile Mail). It was fairly long, and these excerpts:
"Good night !
I have undergone a difficult period. Not just one month, but also many years before. Joys and sorrows we have traveled together.
I thought, how should I struggling through these difficult days along the next day, day after day, not as useful as this and making everyone worried.
After consulting with doctors and family, and to consider matters relating to my activities as an idol,
I, Haruka Kodama, will pass away from HKT48 and AKB48 Group.
For everyone, the entire staff and all members, who always accompany HKT48 and AKB48 Group in a variety of conditions, I really apologize profusely. We learned a lot from the experiences that we live for this. We apologize for this sudden announcement. Thank you very much for your support over the years.
From now on, please help! Please keep supporting HKT48 and AKB48 Group! Thank you very much !"
