NMB48 idol group member Ririka Sutō is the center of more news after announcing her plans to study in Germany. The soon-to-be-graduated idol made the announcement via the NMB48 shop's official blog. The shop shared pictures of the idols on Wednesday with comments on the group's third album release, "Nanba Ai ~Ima, Omōkoto~." Sutō wrote in her message:
I was really glad to happen upon NMB48. There was only love here. Love was only here!! Please take care of my biggest "hater" Kokoro Naiki. I'm going to go get a doctorate in Germany.
Sutō dropped a bombshell at the AKB48 Senbatsu Election in June when she announced that she is getting married. The news was quickly followed by her planned "graduation" from the group, although no timeline was announced.
Sutō said that her romantic partner and first love is an ordinary person that she met as her mother's friend. Sutō met him at her mother's birthday party in November 2015. The pair began a relationship at the end of last year. This year, he proposed to her, and she decided to graduate from NMB48. Sutō said that they have not set a marriage date, and she confirmed that she is not pregnant.
