This isn't too surprising. I expected her graduation, but not this early on the year. Oh well.

Miki for president! :pimp:

Um..I think we should wait for an official announcement before reacting to this? :o


AGREED, and let's quote Tsunku/UFA as a source in the future :P

All joking aside...no surprise at all XD expect this every year...Eri for Leader! And the 4th Gen subgroup can finally be realized :halo:

Congratulations Hitomi!!

I don't know if it was her decision, Tsunku's, or even what's the point behind this graduation. But it's a good decision. Hitomi did her best, stopped the downhill near the 50K, did awesome songs under her leadage (Iroppoi, Sexy Boy) and retained many old school fans (me) until this day we all knew it'd happen: her graduation. This Spring, I and thousand of fans would have nothing else to look for in MoMusu. Utaban hosts depression will go deeper, and Miki will join them. But hey it's time to omedetou Yoshi! Love you, girl!

It feels weird if it's actually happening because it's something I've been expecting/hoping for (like it's weird to wait for something to happen, and then it really does). She just hasn't been fitting in to Momusu, and to me the same thing happened with Nacchi, Kaori... They didn't look like they belonged there anymore and to me their graduation was a relief (except I wasn't there for Nacchi's grad, but looking back on things, this is the feeling I've got). But the thought of all the Golden Era members being gone is very weird, too.

I don't think this really changes anything, though. After every "significant" graduation people have said MM wouldn't be able to continue for long anymore, but they're still here...

Members like Yossi (and in the past, Nacchi, Kaori, etc) don't "fit" into Momusu anymore because the generations are getting younger and younger, minus Miki of course. It's almost a bit strange to see adults being surrounded by 'kids', but at the same time, an adult is exactly what's needed to lead the group.

I'm still waiting on that official announement, but if it is true, then I wish I could send a huge thanks to her for leading this group so well and keeping them focused; even with all the pressure put on her, with Gatas members leaving too and whatnot.

The most reliable source available at the moment is this ; http://centuryland.jp/cgi-bin/bbs/info_pc.cgi?mode=new_html&no=4742

Posted by someone who claimed to be an admin.
Gotta wait a while to see if it's true. They had to apologise for false news posted at their bbs before.

Sad but not surprising. She really has done well as leader, maybe now she will be able to relax a bit.

So Aichan as next leader? Should be interesting.

This is great news for Gatas. Soon their captain can concentrate on futsal 100% :P

I don't know if it was her decision, Tsunku's, or even what's the point behind this graduation.
According to Rika this is how graduations happen:
Quote from: crazyaoshi;270589
Ishikawa: I was in this group last year.
Staff: So, did you decide on your own to graduate?
Ishikawa: Nope, it wasn't me.
Staff: Does Tsunku decide?
Ishikawa: It's like...The top person at out company or something proposed it and and I was like "hmmmm". [painful smile]
Staff: But you can't graduate unless you're capable of acting solo, right?
Ishikawa: Well yes.  But my case was the first of its kind, graduate to form a new unit.
Staff: But when Ogawa graduates someone will come in to take her place, right?
Ishikawa: They're conducting an audition now.

I guess when UFA collectively agrees (or maybe according to "The Big Boss") that 'the time is right' for a member to graduate, they do it. Or like what with Masa posted, for the purpose of creating a new group.

I'd say this is as good as confirmed already. The final concert is taking place in Super Saitama Arena. Also, according to a wota they mentioned nothing about the reason.

The only surprise is that she didn't grad sooner.  Good luck to her though, she deserves a rest.

And I'm a little surprised the doom-sayers haven't shown up yet preaching the end of MM :o

@ ggliff: I think that according to tradition, Miki will be the next leader.

Gotta say, I was a little surprised when they announced it, but most of the people standing around me weren't so surprised. I think they were all expecting it, especially as they said Yossie has an announcement (right at the start). I think my sister cried though. She was waiting outside the concert (wearing her Yossie shirt) and some guys were trying to tell her what happened. She doesn't speak Japanese, they don't speak English. Haha. But the fact that they even tried warms my heart <3 :p

Won't she become the host-moderator of the game segments of Hello Morning?  That seems to be the pattern with other graduates: Yuko, Naachi, etc.

Funny how it says "withdrawal"... And that she's going solo.

Thanks, icarianwings!! No mention about adding anyone in, right?

It's on Yahoo now too.

Too bad it won't be at Budoukan. But since they performed their after Rika's grad too, it wouldn't be as special as how it was with Rika anyway. And Saitama is her hometown.


CONGRATS, YOSSIE! FREEDOM AT LAST! :p
