Hirajima Natsumi Is My Oshima In AKB48. Hope She Recover From Her Mistake.
Wish Her All The Best. I Am Still Supporting Her.
The reason why they decided to leave the group were not revealed, however, recently, their private photos (including photos taken with guys) have been leaked on the internet through their private Twitter accounts and many are speculating that this could be the reason.
AKB48 1st generation member Hirajima Natsumi (19) and 3rd generation member Yonezawa Rumi (20) have both resigned from AKB48, after getting into a scandal involving boyfriends.
From the AKB Official blog:
Today, Hirajima Natsumi and Yonezawa Rumi both requested to resign from AKB48.
I apologize for the announcement being so sudden.
Below are messages from the both of them to their fans:
I, Hirajima Natsumi, will hereby resign from AKB48 and Watarirouka Hashiritai.
I'm sorry this announcement was so sudden.
I'm terribly sorry to have caused trouble for everyone.
To everyone who supported me, the members, the staff, and everyone involved with AKB48, I'm really sorry.
I'll separate myself from AKB48 and Watarirouka Hashiritai, but I hope you'll cheer me on so that I can meet all of you again as Hirajima Natsumi.
I'm terribly sorry.
I, Yonezawa Rumi, will hereby resign from AKB48 as of today.
I'm sorry this is such a sudden announcement.
To everyone who supported me, I'm both full of thankfulness and the feeling that this was inexcusable.
Thank you for these 5 years.
I was always supported during this time.
I'll continue my activities solo from now on.
I'm terribly sorry that I caused trouble for the members, the fans, and for AKB48. I'm really sorry.
Those were their messages.
As for handshake events and what will happen after this, we'll make an announcement in a few days.

J-pop sweetheart, YUI, proves her popularity once again with her fifth album, How Crazy Your Love, which topped the Oricon charts. The album has an acoustic pop heart, with a touch of indie rock. "Green a.live", previously released as a single, is a pop rock number with lyrics that tug at heartstrings. Intriguingly, I sensed a tinge of sadness in her voice in most of the songs. It may be becausee her singing style has matured over the years, or perhaps she has been through a lot. Nonetheless, it added life to the album and made the lyrics more relatable. :D

A major 7.0-magnitude earthquake rocked Tokyo Sunday, Japan's Meteorological Agency said, there were no immediate reports of damage or injury and no tsunami warning was issued.
The quake struck at 2:28pm (0528 GMT), the agency said. Its epicentre was located near Torishima, an island about 560 kilometres (350 miles) south of Tokyo. It was about 370 kilometres (230 miles) deep.
The mid-afternoon quake swayed buildings in Tokyo but it did not disrupt the final of the Emperor's Cup football tournament under way at the National Stadium.
