Get out those graduation caps because after first joining eight years ago, AKB48 Team A's Ami Maeda will be graduating from the group!

Ami announced the news during her birthday at the AKB48 Theater, though a date has not yet been set for her graduation. As for her post-AKB48 plans, Ami plans on pursuing an acting career and will be starring in the stage play "Orange Note", which opens on June 22. 

While it'll be sad to see her go, we wish Ami the best of luck in whatever she does!
