Thought as much.

Not even that upset, tbh. I've gotten pretty sick of her in the last few years so err, yeah. Have fun in your new band, Reina.

Knew it was coming but still sad. There goes my favourite member of Momusu :(

Called this months ago...not that sad tbh. I'll be sad when Sayu leaves. I hope she finds success with her band since her idol image will carry over into that. And that in turn might make things harder for her. But more power to her if she is happy.

Also not surprised. Sayumi will probably follow quite soon and then there'll be no pre-2011 members left :(
mia_p 18th-Nov-2012 02:30 pm (UTC)

Was expecting it but wasn't expecting it at the same time....

I expected her to leave waaay before Aichan even did. She was never my favorite member (or even on that list) so uh bye Reina.

When the first part of the title of the spring concert leaked I worried. It's a huge relief that it's not Sayu

Goodbye Reina, have fun

I was expecting this soon, as Oda aka new lead is in, but I thought I'll be happier since I want both Sayu and Reina gone since they just don't fit in a way with the new generations aka they are too old and they look like extras. I like Sayu, and I admit I was so tired of Reina getting so many lines over the years, but I knew Momosu in the early Ai-Reina era so even if I really never care much for Reina and I was an even less fan of her voice, and the giant bows and cat ears, it surprisingly makes me a bit sad. =/

I don't fear for Momosu though in terms of singing since Oda is in and I have high hopes for her, but as long as popularity goes, they need to have a show or something. X3
