I actually screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO at 2am in the morning.... wrecked my perfectly fun day....

I knew it was gonna happen sooner or later, but damn. ;_____;
at least we still have most of the year with her?

Remember when Yuko handed down the "leader of H!P" status to Ai? Since Gaki is (most likely) going to be leader, does that mean she is also the new leader of H!P too?
or is that just not a big deal.
awkwardnormalcy 9th-Jan-2011 10:33 am (UTC)
It means Gaki is the leader of H!P now, I don't think its as big of a deal this time because Yuko was the leader for so long, you know?

Tsunku's building up a new Hello! Project. He hadn't added that many girls in one generation and he hadn't annoucned that many graduation so close to each other since 2003-2004. Tsunku and his managers team were serious when they said this would be the year of attack for Morning Musume!
nozo_rin 9th-Jan-2011 10:24 am (UTC)
Meaning, they keep ATTACKING us with bad news >.<
paige_nevaeh 9th-Jan-2011 10:34 am (UTC)

I didn't see that coming.

Nobody did baby, you're not alone.

I know that maybe many will hate my for this, but i think it's a good thing.
I has been there for a long time. She is very talented, but also always a bit more shy/silent. She is a nice girl but I think she is also the main thing that makes Momusu to what it is now.
Tsunku said he wanted change.
If course I'm sad because the Lineup just changed and before we can get used to it, it changes again.
But I also see it as a chance, because there is more room for the other members to shine and especially, for MM to change.
I'm not sure if my message is understandable and if my english works because I just got out of bad so excuse me if this is messed up.

At least we still have a year with her. Plus, this one isn't as big of a shock since she's been in for so long.

But seriously Tsunku. Can you give us more than two weeks between major lineup change news? Graduating EJL, adding the new members 2 weeks later, and announcing another graduation less than a week after that? My poor MM fan heart can't take anymore.

THIS x 10000000000

I did not expect that D:
madzterill 9th-Jan-2011 10:55 am (UTC)
she's so beautiful......
akalillyn 9th-Jan-2011 11:07 am (UTC)
Devastated. I was hoping that 9th generation would be Morning Musume's comeback. ;____; I'm happy for her if that was her own decision, but I am so sad. I hope she continues with her own music and not just theater. We won't get to see her as often that way!

also, lol @ Tsunku asking her when she wants to leave vs. everyone else getting surprised by their graduations.
scubajr 9th-Jan-2011 04:07 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I felt really bad for JunJun and LinLin because they said that they wouldn't graduate until they were center, and then they got shipped back to China.
galaxy_rescue 9th-Jan-2011 11:22 am (UTC)
NOOO >.<

She is my favorite member :( but if was her decision then it's ok. u.u
helsings 9th-Jan-2011 11:25 am (UTC)
I'm taking this positively.

Girl has been there a LONG time, she'll have to move on eventually. She's talented enough that we'll still be seeing her doing a lot of things even after she graduates.
ryocchi 9th-Jan-2011 11:26 am (UTC)
I knew it was getting closer by the minute, but still is a shocker, couldn't they have wait until we finished rejoicing about the 9th generation?, also Couldn't ai have graduated with the pandas instead of Eri so Eri could shine a little more?

Tsunku is seriously doing it this year, I hope he brings back the awesomeness and prestige Morning Musume... no, the Whole Hello!Project had, I think for her to graduate is a good thing so she can continue to grow she's almost 25 and teenager song are no longer fitting for her, dont get me wrong, I don't want her to go all Aya Matsuura, I want her to sing young woman songs so she can take the control of her career and show us what she's capable of by her true self =)& the other girls can get their time to shine now to show us a new Morning Musume, I think Gaki will make an Awesome/hilarious leader & maybe this time we can finally see WHY Tsunku chose Aika to be in Morning Musume.

Still keeping my hopes up.

lolol. That made me laugh, I don't know why.
pumpkinskin 9th-Jan-2011 11:35 am (UTC)
She's been in Momusu forever, it just feel so weird to me
I hope she leaves for a better agency tho
Her talent shouldn't go wasted
I'll miss her but I also look forward to what Risa, Sayu, and the new gen will bring
