no offense but I'm really happy. I feel like her talents were going to waste, this girl has so much potential and deserves so much! I hope she stays away from HP though, I feel like that place is hindering her growth as an artist.

It'll be sad not to see her around Risa though =/

Tsunku's had 10 years to make her debut solo. Who knows why he didn't.

I hope she goes into Takarazka or some big acting company. She is a good actress and could play a male role rally well (see Ribon no Kishi).

I thought it was something about her not reaching the height minimum or something. If I remember my H!P knowledge correctly, Ai's a huge fan of the Takarazuka.

Ai and Reina are the only things keeping me interested in MM atm. idk why Tsunku thought this would be a good idea.

Ai has been around for 9 years. It was just meant to happen sooner or later, I guess.

Okay, now that I've taken a moment I feel better about this, because
1. It's after the fall tour, which means we're going to get at least two and maybe three more singles with her, which means,
2. I think Morning Musume is going to have a great run this year and will have a decent momentum going by the time she leaves.
3. She and Risa have had the longest tenure in Morning Musume history. Honestly, it's about damn time.
4. Girl could seriously rock a solo career.

Dude, do you remember when fans didn't like her because she had an amazing voice but was awful during interviews/seemed to have no personality and now she's just completely out there and amazing everytime we see her? <3

they've been around as long as freaking Mari and Kaori, if not longer

They broke that record a long time ago XD but unlike Kaorin, they never seemed to 'outgrow' Momusu.

Eririn I can kinda understand since she was 5th gen.

this typo is incredibly amusing to me


They definitely will bb! Don't lose hope!

I wonder if she will remain under Up-Front or if she will fly away like Maki...
chibi_rei 9th-Jan-2011 09:03 am (UTC)

I... wow. I mean I'm happy for her! But wow.
So is she actually leaving H!P or is it like the other old H!P-ers who still exist within the company, but go do their own thing?
peachpastiche 9th-Jan-2011 09:08 am (UTC)
The official announcement says that she will be leaving H!P as well, and that her activities after graduation will still be music, with a focus on theatre and live performances.

i. am. going. to dieeee DD:

all my favorite morning musume members are going awayy TT__TT

My heart stopped for a moment DDD:

I'd be happy for her if she was moving to a different company after graduation, but in UFA Aichan's going to be just another inactive soloist. And a voice like hers deserves an actual career, like with Oricon-charting songs and non-wota fans.

And Tsunku, this reasoning for graduating a vocalist like Aichan seems stupid. Really.
awkwardnormalcy 9th-Jan-2011 09:46 am (UTC)
Well, she's been around for like, ever and hogging 70% of singles. 9th gen won't get a chance to shine or make Morning Musume newer and awesome with her as the girl everyone pays attention to :/ I get this decision, especially because we still have awhile with her, at least 2 singles worth of time!

=/ Tsunku is kinda like a roller coaster... >____>

ryocchi Re: Troll better if you can, Aki-P9th-Jan-2011 11:10 am (UTC)

but seriously girl Hope Aki-P don't! since he promoted the whole 9th generation kenkyuusei I'm fearing another shuffle! God forbids ;________; imagine if he moves Mariko to SDN D=!!!
kushina 9th-Jan-2011 09:47 am (UTC)

TBH, I'm not sure if I'm happy about it or not.. BUT GAKI IS GONNA BE LEADER, WOOO! \o/

I really hope Sayu is going to be subleader and NOT Reina. I'll cut a bitch if Tsunku tries to pull a fast one

I seriously will kill someone if Reina becomes the subleader....
