=O!!!

Didn't see that coming ._. For a moment I wondered if it was a joke lol

Well, it was about time that she graduated, right? I'm still sad though.

On the other side... I'm happy for Gaki becoming the leader :)

Ai-chan is really talented, so I'm hoping to see her around even if she's not part of MM :D

Waaaaaaat

Never, ever liked Takahashi, but... Momusu's been centered around her for so damn long that Momusu without her seems like it'd be... weak.

No, I take back that weak comment. After reading it over and thinking about it more, I definitely think that it's time. I think Momusu will do just fine without her.

i commented earlier but reality still hasn't sunk in:(
2012 is coming. Devastating my k-pop and now my j-pop? FUUUUUUUUU!
But damn, as soon as I heard about Eri & the pandas graduating I said "Well next years Ai"
I DIDN'T WANT IT TO HAPPEN! GOD WHY DO YOU MAKE MY BAD WISHES AND STATEMENTS COME TRUE::(((?

I had a feeling this would come sooner or later. I'm gonna miss Ai being part of Momusu. ;_;
But how they're going to split her singing parts when she leaves. No offense to the other members but none of them have a voice as great of Ai's. D: Maybe they can give most of her parts to Risa but who knows how much longer she's staying.

like Nacchi, Ai is the face of Momusu so it's gonna be really hard to let go TT__________________TT

definetly going to be interested in what she's gonna be doing afterwards!

for now, it's pretty much a year away~

She better not disappear or anything!

Not surprising, she has been there forever.

But as the H!P/Momusu leader, it's going to be weird. Her and Risa are pretty much the only ones left from the Golden Era (they caught the tail end of it) so I wonder what this will mean in terms of MM's popularity.

It had to happen sooner or later though. I expect Risa to go next, though it will be weird to have her shift in to being the new H!P/MM leader only to have her leave soon after.

Hopefully Ai will either go full Takarazuka, or switch to Avex.

Anyway, if Momusu doesn't bring it in 2011, then BERRYZ CAN FINALLY MOVE TO CENTER POSITION IN HELLOPRO, MUAHAHAHAHAHAH!

I hope for a solo career. not so sure how much I'll like Momusu once she leaves.

hopefully the new members bring it.

I've never really like Takahashi, but she's a great singer and has a great personality so hopefully she'll have a successful career after this.

Congrats H!P, you've finally hit the final nail on the coffin that was Morning Musume.
magneticdeath 11th-Jan-2011 03:22 am (UTC)
This fits perfectly with my prediction that Tsunku will bring MM back to "genki" (read: kiddy) songs. I'm a true neutral to the faces of the group so long as Tsunku keeps bringin' the epic violin solos and minor key.

If not: Goodbye Morning Musume, hello C-ute and Berryz Koubou!
