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.

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.

Eri isn't one of my favorites, but she adds something to the group, everyone does. She's random and kooky and..It just won't be the same. I wasn't a big fan of Koharu, but I was still sad to go because I would miss her interactions with the girls.

More importantly, that leaves Reina, Gaki and Aichan who can sing. Aika can,but she doesn't have the power and energy Linlin has, and Sayu...Well is Sayu.

Tsunku needs to makeup for Eri and Linlin with new girls, and I can't imagine my Momusu as only six girls, okay I just can't. Its too weird.
