Woaaahh... what a shcoker-well, not really. It is not surprising they r skipping it since so many girls announced their graduation after Produce48 and actually leaving for the Korean industry of music. Especially since Juri, one of the biggest names in AKB48, announced she is leaving as well. Not to mention some girls have already announced they are not joining earlier this year and last year or so, so yeah. Not that all surprising.

I don't think it's that. It's mostly because of NGT48's scandal (where Maho Yamaguchi said she was assaulted and the management not only did very little about it but also tried to cover it up) earlier this year, which has caused a lot of sponsors to drop out.
