Tsunku's Statement About Eri, Junjun and Linlin's Graduations

Big announcement from the Morning Musume。

About the graduation of Eri Kamei, 6th generation member

Eri Kamei came to me several times regarding her health condition. One time, she said to me : "I would like to find the time to cure the atopic dermatitis that I'm suffering from".
Since the time she joined the Morning Musume。, it looks like she was dealing with symptoms like itching and slight skin color changes. She took medication to calm the symptoms down and she also used make-up to cover it but during live concerts, there is a lot of sweat and many outfits to put on, which made her recovery very difficult.

Some may say it is "just a skin problem" but according to doctors, an external problem like skin problem may move to an internal level. It may as well have an impact on her spirit, her mental level. Also, for her, it is a serious thing so she decided to focus on her recovery instead of letting it continue.

Eri Kamei will graduate from the Morning Musume。 and the Hello! Project on the last day of the Morning Musume。Autumn 2010 concert tour.

As for her activities after that, I intend to discuss with her after her full recovery.

About the graduation of Jun Jun and Lin Lin, 8th generation members (foreign students)

In May 2005, both of them joined the Morning Musume。as foreign students and today, while being skilled singers and entertainers, they also greatly improved their japanese proficiency and they are now grown-up women. This is why I took the decision to graduate both of them at the same time as Eri Kamei on the last day of the Morning Musume。Autumn 2010 concert tour.

After graduation, they will enter a period of preparation before focusing on their singers and entertainer career in China.

sengoku would be an amazing addition

I wonder if he'll add Dayun too?? its about time she did something.
danceinthedark 8th-Aug-2010 09:29 am (UTC)
Please god no. She was the Aika of that audition; lots of talented girls but he picks the most useless one.

eri ;_;
doujoushin 8th-Aug-2010 09:01 am (UTC)
Eririn... ;_;
But I hope she will get better and then come back as a member of another group or possibly solo. Will be waiting for sure. ♥

Sengoku.. would be nice, totally for that, BUT... she's in Ongaku Gatas. @.@;


and here's hoping he ends up changing his mind and adds at least two girls. XD
freedomtrain 8th-Aug-2010 09:02 am (UTC)
being in gatas never stopped mano xD

and he probably will, or we'll see a bunch of new people in the eggs in a few months time xDD

this must be so hard on fans and it will definitely strike a blow to their international fanbase. from the random lurking i've done at jpm and even from comments here it seems those three are quite popular.

kinda shitty of him to graduate all three of them together the girls graduation concert should be all about -her- (kago and tsuji is an exception)
freedomtrain 8th-Aug-2010 09:04 am (UTC)
junlin werent really popular to japanese fanbase but they were getting there.
Eri was definitely a fan favorite, from the beginning, and especially recently.

this is ... awful.

;________; Kamei.

Eri graduating is the best thing for her in the long run, all the stress plus the tons of make-up she uses to cover up her condition can't be doing her any good. I wish her all the best. ♥

In May 2005, both of them joined the Morning Musume

I... what? Wrong.

Anyway, WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT. Well, Eri wants time to get healed up. That's totally understandable. I guess... I'll miss her? I like Eri. I don't love her, but I certainly don't hate her.

But also graduating the Chinese girls? What? That leaves... five. Five musumes. Nice thought, Tsunku, but they can't compare with the original, so you had best stock up in the next auditions. As in, pick more than one girl, plz.

Apparently he only wants to pick one audition member. Bastard.

But also the Eggs will be doing some different kind of training starting from when these girls graduate so maybe he'll stick some of the awesome ones in Morning Musume.

if you really liked them that much you would've noticed they've only been around for 3 years

Graduation dates are:

December 12th, 2010. Tokyo, JCB Hall.

14:30 open 15:30 start

What a lovely birthday present to give to Eri. /sarcasm.

He did the same thing to Maki (-____-;)

Looked up Eri's condition and damn, how do you work with that going on? I'mma be sad to see you go bb, but yeah you need time to work on that.

I do want an egg to get a chance though. Some of them have more talent than already-established members.
i.e. C-ute's Saki Nakajima.
