After the fans voted for suspended members Rena Shimada and Shiori Matsuda to return to NMB48 at the end of 2011, there was still one member that was yet to return to the fold namely Akari Yoshida. Last week fans were given a chance to do what they did before with the the other two girls and that was to vote whether to allow her back to work or leave her on the sidelines for a longer period of time.
The votes were as follows:
YES – 6,821
NO – 873
So the result means that she can come back to work. She will resume her duties with the group in mid-February.
Welcome back Akarin!
