    When waka announced grad ; I think that's the last straw for Reika.

    I was trembling for no reason in a whole day. Now I know the reason.
    Thanks for everything. This group wouldn't be as big as it is without your dedication.

    This is speculated ever since Wakasama's graduation but nonetheless nobody is ready for. Thank you for your service, Captain.
    Wish you good luck for your future endeavors.

    So Sept. 1 is her final stand as Captain and Member for Nogi .
    Hopefully they give Reika the respect that she deserves .
    A fitting end for Captain in their Hometurf Meiji Jingu.

    Dang. One of my most feared predictions.

    Need to soak this one in.

    I'm speechless :cry2:

    I honestly think nogizaka will now get rid of the captain concept.

    "As long as we're united. We'll support each other. No one is alone.
    This is Nogizaka46!"

    Here's sasuga post paying homage to the captain.

    This hurts seriously :cry2:

    I’m still crying an hour after the announcement. A nogi without Reika is just ridiculous such an important and irreplaceable figure. I will miss her so much. I hope September the 9th will be an unforgettable day for her. Gosh September is too soon...

    Reikaptain is graduating? I'm devastated. I thought she would be sticking for awhile. I guess people are going to speculate about her successor instead of the graduation news. To me, she is always my most favorite captain. Best of luck!

    The captain of Nogizaka is leaving. It is an honor to have an outstanding person as amazing and beautiful as she is charming, the memories that we hold close to our hearts will never fade so long as we will continue to remember and cherish them. I send my regards and pray that you will continue to be the greatest person that you can be.

    Sad news.

    While it's always a big deal when a fukujin member graduates, I feel like Reika's graduation truly represents the end of an era.

    On the bright side, she could be graduating to pursuit Waka, no?
    Anyway, good luck to her! Any news on whether she'll stay in showbiz?

    Are you kidding me!?

    NOT THE CAPTAIN!!! And the final activity date...only a few days (or couple days, if you include furage) before Nogizaka46's next single!

    If you didn't read the news release, then all of us (including myself) might be thinking Reika's going to be center for that upcoming single. But given the final activity date of 9/1, and the single doesn't come out of 9/4...that's out the window - or maybe participation of the next senbatsu!

    Well, best of luck Reika, thanks for serving us as the captain of Nogizaka46 since the early days of the group.

    We really have to wonder who is going to be the next captain of Nogizaka46, if there ever will be.

    Relive the time when she was announced as the captain of the top idol group that we know today. :cry2:

    She will. Reika has the interest to build an actress career, though not sure if this is a drama actress or theater actress but it will be safe to say that she will stay in the entertainment industry and be active in social media.

    Man, I wasn't expecting this at all. I don't know, but maybe having watched the 6th Birthday Live BD over the weekend makes this news a bit sadder.

    Good luck, Cap.
