Following news that AKS would sue the perpetrators of the assault on soon-to-be former NGT48 member Yamaguchi Maho in order to get them to talk, thus seemingly invalidating their own third-party investigation into the matter, it was revealed that only Maho, Hasegawa Rena, and Sugahara Riko would appear at the trio’s upcoming graduation concert.
It’s not for lack of trying though, as AKS has reportedly prohibited any 48 Group member from attending, according to Hashimoto Haruna.
It’s as if AKS is trying to come off as evil as possible with every decision they make regarding this mess.
Speaking of AKS, apparently it’s not Akimoto Yasushi behind all of this, confirmed by Maho herself.
AkiP’s not the top so he can’t go against them… Therefore, he’s unable to comment. I think the other members in the grp feel the same way. I’m really thankful he was worried for Rena and Riko too. Despite that, I’m sorry I thought of you as an evil person.#JusticeforMahohon— 下尾みう応援者 (@miiuon) May 3, 2019
This was mentioned by Sashihara Rino.

“Since the top mgmt was replaced, AkiP has become only a creative producer.
I heard from the only person who was able to speak with AkiP & Mahochan that AkiP has gave words of encouragement to Mahochan.”#JusticeforMahohon
Normally I’d be skeptical about this, as it seems very convenient that he gets distance from the mess. However, it’s not just Sasshi (who still has ties to AKS), but Maho herself saying it as well.
