Miyu Takeuchi (竹内 美宥, Takeuchi Miyu, born January 12, 1996 in Tokyo, Japan) is a Japanese singer and former member of the Japanese idol group AKB48.[1]

Career[edit]

Prior to joining AKB48, Takeuchi appeared in little by little's music video for "Ameagari no kyūna sakamichi" ("A Steep Slope After the Rain") and was a member of J-pop idol unit Fruit.[2]

AKB48[edit]

Takeuchi passed AKB48 auditions in 2009. She was promoted to full member status in 2010, and was announced as a member of AKB48's newly formed Team 4 in 2011.[3]

She signed to OH Enterprise in 2012.[4] Later that year, Team 4 was disbanded, and Takeuchi was moved to AKB48's Team B.[5] She was accepted to Keio University in 2013, attending classes at Keio University's Shonan Fujisawa campus while continuing to perform at the AKB48 theater in Akihabara.[6] During this time, Takeuchi uploaded home recordings of song covers on social media. In 2014, she began to post song covers on her YouTube channel.[7]

Produce 48[edit]

On November 29, 2017, South Korean subscription TV channel Mnet announced the third season of the Produce 101 reality competition television series, Produce 48, billed as a collaboration with Yasushi Akimoto, the creator and producer of the AKB48 franchise.[8] Produce 48 aired from June 15 to August 31, 2018. Contestants included thirty-nine girls from AKB48 Group and fifty-seven girls from South Korean entertainment companies. The show's premise was to form a twelve-person group chosen by viewers' votes that would promote for two and a half years.[9] Takeuchi participated as one of the Japanese contestants from AKB48 and its sister groups, finishing in 17th place.

Post-AKB48[edit]

Four days after the Produce 48 finale, on September 4, 2018, Takeuchi announced her departure from AKB48.[10] Her last performance with AKB48 took place on December 25, 2018,[11] and her contract with OH Enterprise ended on December 31, 2018.[12]

On March 8, 2019, South Korean entertainment company Mystic Entertainment (now Mystic Story) announced that they had signed an official contract with Takeuchi.[13]
