So, I have already requested Sakura-con bring C-ute in 2017. Please send a request to info@sakuracon.org as well.
See http://sakuracon.org/ for info on the con. It is local for me and I have been going since 2008.

I joined JpHip at the con in 2009 when Hangry and Angry came to town, and things have been better for me since.
Life is one time.

℃-ute to disband June 2017

Popular Hello Project idol group ℃-ute has announced plans to dissolve after their concert at Saitama Super Arena in June 2017.

Talk of disbanding first emerged between the members privately, after in house rivals Berryz Kobo had announced their indefinite hiatus in 2014 (it took affect in spring 2015). This made the members ℃-ute start to think about the group’s and their own futures. Discussions began again in February of this year. In the end both ℃-ute and their management decided that it would be best to dissolve the group at the announced date.

After the group disbands in 2017, it’s members will continue to have solo activities with Up-front Group. ℃-ute was formed in 2005 and made their major debut in 2007.

Please continue to check back with ARAMA! JAPAN for more updates.

[EN] Announcement concerning ℃-ute
UP-FRONT LINK·Friday, August 19, 2016

Thank you for your continued support for Hello! Project and ℃-ute.

On June 2017, ℃-ute will breakup after the Saitama Super Arena performance.

On February of this year, when all the members were at least 20 years old, there had been a discussion about the future of ℃-ute and each member.
At that time, all the members of ℃-ute aimed to their goal, doing their best as a group.
And last month, they have been told about the decision of a Saitama Super Arena performance in June of next year.
After this, there has been a discussion: "For us, ℃-ute, this Saitama Super Arena is our goal, and until this day, we will rush with all our power and after we want to walk respectively in our own path".

There have been talks about 3 options they had about what will happen of ℃-ute then.
We respected the choice of the members concerning the option "Continuing the activities of the group after the graduation of Hello! Project", but they wanted ℃-ute to stay the ℃-ute of Hello! Project.
Then with ℃-ute aiming with all their power and progressing to reach their goal, by completing this performance at Saitama Super Arena, they thought they would be puffed up with pride so they considered a "breakup" and not at a "suspension of activities". We understood and accepted this desire.

Until now, they pulled themselves Hello! Project as an elder sisters group of the project.
After this dissolution, the 5 members will be by themselves, and will follow their new start but we would like to continue to watch at them.

Concerning the activities from now, ℃-ute main activity will be to be in direct contact with many people during lives, etc.
Since there will be a period of around 3 months by thinking of rehearsals, performances schedule, ℃-ute will not take part of the Hello! Project tour which will start from January 2017.

From now on, the detailed schedule and the individual activities after the breakup will be announced as soon as there will be decided.

So far, there have been many supports and we would like to thank everyone who permit this development.
In the future, there will be the Nippon Budokan of September 5th as well as ℃-ute no Hi ("℃-ute's day"), an autumn tour and a new single released.

With the members and the staff in unison, while we feel gratitude and would like to repay the support of everyone, we will push on until June of next year and would like to ask for your continued support.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


Thank you for your continued support of Hello! Project and ℃-ute.

Today, we have an announcement for everyone.
In June next year, we, ℃-ute, will realize the dream of performing at Saitama Super Arena.
And this stage will be our last one because we will break up after.

This year on February, when all the members were at least 20 years old, we talked for the group and each respectively about what we can do... concerning the future.
Since this moment, we concretely thought at the future of the group, with each advancing in her path and understanding each other.

However, because especially, "As ℃-ute, we still did not realize our dream! We cannot stop until we perform at our dreaming stage, Saitama Super Arena!", we have decided to face this dream and to fight for it.
After that, our feelings became as one during our activities, and, one day, we have been said that our performance at Saitama Super Arena was decided.

We were really, really happy.
And at the same time, the dream of this big goal we were pursuing and kept on arrived... it was quite an indescribably feeling.

When Saitama Super Arena's performance had been decided, the 5 of us talked with the staff of the company, and we concluded on the fact that at the end of Saitama Super Arena, we will fulfill our individual goals and dreams after that.

Concerning the future, there were 3 options.
First one, graduating from Hello! Project and as ℃-ute, continuing activities in a different stance.
Second one, suspension of activities.
And the third one is the one we decided, breaking up.

℃-ute started in Hello! Project and grew up.
℃-ute is part of Hello! Project.
If there had not been Hello! Project, we would not have come this far.
We wanted ℃-ute to stay the ℃-ute of Hello! Project.

During 11 years, by facing this dream, and because all the members continued to kept running, when the performance at Saitama Super Arena will be over, we can say with confidence "Now, there is no regret! With all our might, we have fulfilled ℃-ute!" !
The 5 of us talked proactively for a long time and that rather a break of activities, we decided on breaking up.

℃-ute has been formed on June 2005 so next year on June 11th, it will become 12 years.
There had been good times, bad times, and because there had always been all the fans supporting us, from our debut with the members we arrived this far 12 years later.
Our feeling of gratitude will really never end.

There are currently many promising kohai (juniors) in Hello! Project.
Even after breaking up, we will follow for sure Hello! Project and we are convinced it will lead.
What we inherited from our senpai (seniors), the time came we will transmit it and pass it to our kohai.

Every year, Hello! Project Concert tour takes place in summer and winter and the current "Hello! Project 2016 SUMMER 〜Sunshine Parade~/〜Rainbow Carnival 〜" is the last one we will take part in.
Until the Saitama Super Arena performance, ℃-ute members will as much as possible do their activities together and send their gratitude nationwide to all the fans.

Please support ℃-ute until the end.
And please continue to support Hello! Project from now on as well.

Though I think it's safe to say they all have bright futures ahead.

This is one of those pieces of news that is not that surprising, but still totally shocking, I think because they've been around for so long, we're more or less attached to them, and with any sense respect them for their long and impressive career!


Selfishly I'm happy now that I got to go to two H!P summer concerts earlier this month, as it appears that is the last tour when C-ute performs with everyone else (since they are saying they are not participating in H!P winter 2017).

It will be interesting to see what each of the members ends up doing and if they indeed all remain with UFG or if some decide to 'disappear'. Either way, gotta wish them all the best!

It's one of those days we all must have known was coming, but it still doesn't mean we WANTED it to come :P

I remember as if it was just last week when they won Japan's Best New Artist!!! :cry:

Graduation is tough, Sacul097 ....it's the natural process of an idol in the idol business, no doubt about it.
If this is natural i.e. either annual graduations of 3 or more members without fail; or permanently disband after 11 years
Then I must seriously reconsider whether to continue being a fan of J-idols, where their status is always "currently a TEMP for now"

First Berryz the entity no longer exists...is it possible for C-ute to adopt the graduation-audition system of MM/Angerme for the sake of longevity?

At least Airi will still have Buono activities, the rest? Especially Supreme Leader Maimi of H!P, are the other 4 retiring from Up-front Group, for good?
Is it gonna be like Kamei or Sayu: completely vanish from planet Earth's radar, will be years before anyone know if they've embarked a new career position, become married/mothers, or even emigrated; if ever?

Guess Hello! Project's motto is & always will be: "cherish your oshi now, for tomorrow they may be gone forever"

This seemed really unreal to me when I first heard it cause I have such a strange relationship with C-ute. It was actually one of my students (I teach in Japan) who told me about the breakup lol. They all know how much I love H!P.

It's so weird cause from the time they started to now I went from loving them to not liking them to hating them to not liking them to liking their songs but hating them to not caring to loving them again lol. C-ute used to kill me cause I didn't understand why their production value was so much better than all the other groups (I was really bitter cause Berryz production sucked and they were my faves lol). I eventually got over it though and I recently fell super in love with them again. Especially with their last single. I listen to that thing so much it's crazy.

I'm so glad that I fell in love with them again and got to see them in both of this summer's H!P concert and will see them at the Buono! concert because I would hate to still feel negative towards them when they graduate. It will be so weird for Momo to be the only "kid" left in H!P so I wonder if anyone else will stick around in anyway.

AND WHAT ABOUT BUONO! I never know what these things mean for that group lol.

So yeah, this news definitely came as a SHOCK

I mean, really, as a fan you have to ask yourself WHAT CAN I DO

Should we GO GO GO to Japan? It's so FARAWAY

Should we JUMP to conclusions or blame THE MIDDLE MANAGEMENT

But we must respect their plans for THE FUTURE

We all thought C-ute was gonna be FOREVER LOVE

But instead they're now ready to say BYE BYE BYE

Just another blow in the SUMMER WIND
