Asahina Akane graduates from Nijisanji three days after new outfit reveal
Asahina Akane has announced her graduation from Nijisanji just three days after the Vtuber showed off her new outfit design.
Nijisanji has seen a few of its talents graduate throughout May. Popular ex-Nijisani ID member Zea Cornelia graduated on May 14 with Taka Radjiman set to join her on May 28.
Even on the EN branch side, the Vtuber agency has seen the likes of Zaion Lanza and Yugo Asuma both step away or have their contract terminated for various reasons.
For the most part, the original Japanese branch has done a good job of retaining its talent but a recent announcement from Asahina Akane has caught fans completely off guard.
Nijisanji Vtuber Asahina Akane will graduate in May

Akane’s graduation will come as a huge shock for her fans as the Nijisanji Vtuber had streamed her new outfit reveal just three days prior to the announcement on May 14.
She is a member of Nornis, a female singing group owned by Nijisanji comprised of Akane, Inui Toko, and Machita Chima. Following Akane’s graduation, Nornis will continue to operate with just the two remaining active members.
The news doesn’t get better for Nijisanji fans with more graduations already confirmed for the coming months. Siska Leontyne will graduate on June 15 and then Amicia Michella’s graduation will follow on July 16.
