I want to cry T___T
I'm gonna miss her a lot... She's so talented, I wish her the best ;__;

It's weird, because Takahashi has never been a fav of mine, but I'm actually feeling quite emotional about this announcement. I've always admired her talent wise but I guess the reason I'm so affected is because I've gotten so used to her in musume.

Thank God she's graduating. She must be feeling happy (although she must be feeling sad as well), because she can finally try new things. It must have been hard being the leader after all this time. She already showed signs of wanting to do new things, so now she has oportunities. I hope she enters Takarazuka!

I don't feel that bad about this. She still has practically another year, and she's been in the group for so long, basically solos most of their singles, and has undoubtedly the most fans. It's her time.

NO!!! T.T

Honestly? I'm glad.

Ai may have the greatest amount of fans, but anyone who has been there for nine years would. And while she is talented, I feel she's stayed way too long and outside of performances has added little to the group.

BUT PLEASE AI TAKE RISA WITH YOU

RISA IS LIKE THE LESS TALENTED AND MORE BORING VERSION OF AI

As much as I love Ai, she has been with MM for a long time, and she is arguably one of the most talented members H!P has right now. Being that MM is strongest as a group, I feel like it's a place for members to grow and develop, and Ai doesn't need that anymore. She can handle solo activities, and tbh, staying with MM forever would only hold her back.

Good luck Ai! And I hope that the "new" Morning Musume lives up to its expectations too.

Also I think people need to think about how even though Ai has the biggest fanbase, she's had nine damn years to build it and they're all obviously not buying the singles if it's so big.

And it's worth mentioning she isn't even the member who goes on TV the most. Sayumi is still the only member lately who ever gets to go anywhere alone. Ai may be popular with her fanbase, but it's obvious she doesn't attract media attention.

But tbh I do feel like her talents were being wasted, so I hope she goes on to become successful!!

Wasted?? How?! She sings pretty much every other line (alternating with Reina) in every song! How is she wasted?

Now ERI, SHE was wasted.

And Mako. And Yossi. And and and and....
