I actually think this could be a good thing - it will give the new members (and even the pre-existing ones) more chance to shine, since there will (hopefully!) be more even line distribution. Let's just hope the songs will actually be good...

I hope this means that her talent will be no longer wasted and she could get all the success she deserves. Despite of being the most talented in the current line-up, she needs to take steps beyond being in Morning Musume.

I'm looking forward to see Sayumi as subleader and the newest girls to prove they are amazing enough to be there as members.

2007-2010 was the line up I loved the most. And now, my favourite members are starting to fade away. By 2012 my only two girls will be GakiSayu only

I hope the new gen will actually make me a fan. I like them alot (still a week can't compare with 3 years of fandom) so I'm relieved

AICHAN T.T She deserves the best UFA! If she ends up like anothe Abe or Aya I will cut a bitch

ALSO this means Reina will dominate the singles more?


Please Tsunku, make 9 gen lead the newer singles

My favorit member noo~ D=
I'm never gonna listen to any MM songs from now on...I was listening just for her!
Hope she will have a solo singer career soon !

the end is near. my body is not ready.

Go solo and marry Nakamura Aoi, thank you very much 8D

I love Ai and while I'm sad to see her go I'm glad she's graduating. But I wish Reina went with her so they could've formed a duo. XD

I hope she gets a solo single. ♥

Honestly? It's about time! MoMusu has been relying on Ai-chan for far too long and it's time to let the gal spread her wings and fly onto new and exciting things. I'm happy for her that she'll get to try out new things and I hope that she'll get to live out her dream of joining Takarazuka like when she was younger.

So fans, I have a proposal. Instead of being angry (because I know it's a big shock to some of you) let's do our best to support Ai-chan instead! :D

Lol sorry but Takarazuka is impossible. You don't just join. You apply for the training school when you are 14 then work your way up for 10-20 years from there.

I don't understand why some people think it's crazy that Tsunku does this even though he wanted a attacking MM...yes, she got a extremely big fanbase and many fans will leave.
But MM lives because of Graduations and new additions. It's not the first time. I mean, Koharu was my favourite member but I wouldn have wanted to see her in MM for 12 years or so by any means. Because she would have stopped MM from changing etc, etc.
I see this as a chance for both, MM and Ai.
If you want a group where it's less likely that you favourite leaves, then please focus more on Berryz,°C and S/mileage, or something totally different that's not H!P.

And I don't want to say it's stupid to be surprised, because of course such a announcement is surprising, no matter how much you expected it.
raiknii 9th-Jan-2011 05:05 pm (UTC)
this this this. i agree 100%. (and koha is my favorite member too ♥)
angelachibayuy 9th-Jan-2011 02:42 pm (UTC)
Why are people wining and saying they will leave the fandom? If you are gonna leave, do it now and save us all the wank.

This was not unexpected, and it probably should have been her that went in December (with my JJ) but Eri was the one who brought it forward first. Musume is a group that is about change and always has been, so 10 years is long overdue and it's not like she will disappear, she will just move to M-line once she decides to do like Koharu did.

Ugh. It would be sad too see her leave the group. But she definitely has a bright future ahead. <3

your icon is amazing and makes me wish I still had icons of Maa. :(
jumpsama 9th-Jan-2011 03:15 pm (UTC)
just happy it's not someone from Berryz (they're still solid even after 5 years of no member changes, though new singles are becoming boring, wait when was the last one again?)

as for Ai, it's about time. Risa needs to stand out now even if it's for a few months left (her graduation clock is ticking as well..)
