~ update details and PV unveiled ~
The Not yet unit features AKB48 members Oshima Yuko, Sashihara Rino, Yokoyama Yui, and Kitahara Rie. They debuted with single Shumatsu Not yet on March 16th 2011 and went on to release two more singles in 2011. In 2012 they released their 4th single Suika BABY (2012.05.30) with over a year passing until they released 5th single Hiri Hiri no Hana on September 25th 2013 (more details). [ed perhaps unit member Sashihara Rino’s mini-scandal and subsequent transfer to HKT48 during the summer of 2012 contributed to Not yet’s lack of releases].
Member and AKB48 group center Oshima Yuko (25) during the NHK 2013 New Years Eve singing event Kouhaku uta Gassen, announced her intention to graduate from AKB48 (more details). Her final performances and graduation is set for the March 29th and 30th 2014 at special spring concerts at Kasumigaoka National Stadium.
Not yet has planned a special live launch event with ticket lottery application flyer included with each edition of album “already” (hopefully Oshima Yuko will make a special appearance). More details will be included on the flyer,
