SDN48 were formed to be the more “mature” sister group of AKB48, they started performing their 1st (and only) stage [Yuuwaku no Garter] on 1st August 2009 and all members were graduated en masse at the [NEXT ENCORE] concert at the NHK Hall on 31st March 2012. Since then, the group held two re-union performances at the AKB48 Theatre on 31st March 2013, and also performed on 15th May 2012 as part of the [Minogashita Kimitachi e 2] revival concert series and will perform two shows as part of the [Omoidaseru Kimitachi e] revival concert series on 25th May 2013.

Check out the debut video from their official YouTube Channel, about their formation:

To be honest Umeda Haruka and KONAN are the only ones who I easily recognize. I’m happy some of the SDN girls are still continuing their idol duties but as separate from AKB. I think they need to grow besides that they are Ex-SDN or technically Ex-48 Family but of course motto SDN would be attached to their names from now on.

Think about it, how are the AKB graduates doing?
