This is an important announcement concerning S/mileage.

Thanks for always supporting S/mileage.

We have an important announcement about S/mileage’s Ogawa Saki. Following the Uchouten LOVE Live Event on August 27th at Higashi Betsuin Hall in Nagoya, Ogawa Saki will be graduating from S/mileage and Hello! Project.

RIP original 4, I shall miss you, but this is karma for Tsunku screwing over Saho Akari in the first place tbqh.

Shocking! but the only girl i care for in S/mileage is Yuuka so, whatever, sorry for her fans though :/

.......I know I'm going to get hate for this, but I'm happy she's leaving. She may still do work with Oha Studio and, who knows, go solo with more training?

S/mileage as a whole just doesn't sound great. Even Mini moni (which was a silly fun group) actually had vocal talent. I know, this coming from an Koharu fan is pretty lulzy, but I miss H!P when the groups actually had vocal talent and weren't just squeaky kids.

Even BERRYZ and C/UTE didn't sound the way S/mileage does when they started. Eep.

(Also, not trolling. 10 year H!P fan here just stating her opinion.)

I understand exactly what you mean. H!P really isn't what it used to be...

That person most likely meant they've been an H!P fan for 10 years, haha.

So Tsunku organized the audition because he knew Saki would leave sooner or later? That explains why everything has been so quick. Oh well, I will miss her, but I'm not gonna lie, life continues. S/mileage's stronger members are Dawa and Kanon, hands down. The new 5 girls look promising and I'm sure the group will follow Momusu's path with graduations/auditions and become bigger than now. H!P has a lot other stagnant groups. S/mileage is set for something bigger. Thanks for everything Saki and good luck from now on :)

I'd like to just come back here and comment on how funny it is seeing everyone point the finger at Tsunku.
People say this repeatedly every single time an issue like this comes up, but Tsunku isn't the one making the decisions. It's the top dogs of UFA. Regardless of whether Saki came to this decision on her own or was forced to, it's not Tsunku's fault.

I just wanted to get that out there. I'm tired of seeing BOO TSUNKU every time shit goes down. I personally think this was her own decision, especially since she's already made it clear she was quitting Oha Star already.

The face of the company always gets the blame...Sad, but that's what comes with the position. He also gets all the love when stuff goes good.

Goodbye. She was the only one with a talent for singing in the group.
