Former SKE48 Hata Sawako’s new line of work

Ever wonder what Shawako is doing these days? It seems she is taking part in in one of Konami’s most popular video games!

The video game is called, “Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu”. While the game is perhaps not so popular in other countries, it is one of the longest running video game series in Japan, and started in 1994 on the Super Famicom (also known as Super Nintendo).

Shawako herself graduated from SKE48 in 2013, and was one of my favorite members at the time; it’s said she left to pursue a career as a voice actor.

Recently she appeared on a Konami event to promote the latest iteration of the game.

Thankfully it seems there is life after an idol career.

    SHAWAKO! I adore her so much! I wish the picture at the top of her wasn’t pixellated though :(. She’s so incredible!
