I guess this means the end of futsal too. No more goal keeper.

Ogawa is, to be kind.. slow. Of course she has to go overseas. She'll never
pass a Japanese college exam after five years of doing nothing but dance.

Konno was smart coming in, smart going out.

Now people compare ogawa to kei-chan, but people forget that
kei-chan can sing VERY VERY WELL. She has a great voice.
Ogawa sounds like broken glass.

Konno I can see doing guest MC, and H!P appearances.

What I would put foward is if Tsunku is trying to make MM a group
that can actually sing decently again, sayumi and risa have got to go.

Rika, you can put some people with her and she's acceptable
for an idol. Sayu, as much as I love her, sings... well, she doesn't sing
They dead mic / overlay her vocals every concert except for dialogue...

Sayu could be a tv talenta, she's cute enough for a lifetime of Ai no apron...

Risa was once the most hated musume, I mean people burned pictures of her...

I'd say expect more auditions, and people who can sing. If you look at all the people Tsunku passed over based on looks who turned into music stars, he's on the losing side of judgement.

Sadly Ogawa "goose" Makoto's seat didn't eject correctly, and she struck the canapy on the way out.

Hmmm...  quite a big shake-up it seems, and (correct me if I'm wrong) a pair of graduations quite unlike any for several years, in that all preceding graduations for some time have led to the member remaining involved with H!P in some capacity.

These are not girls that I have personally paid huge attention to, but I feel sad for fans for whom they are personal favourites - I know how I would feel if Sayumi was to go!  Obviously they have to consider their futures, and it seems this is a different reason than most for moving to graduation.

It will also leave quite a gap, and there will definitely now have to be an 8th Gen intake sometime soon.  This will be the first intake since I became a more informed fan, and I will be interested to observe what happens - as well as I can when I don't read any Japanese and I don't get to see any of the shows.

Although they weren't my favorite members, I'll remember both of them with fondness.

Konno because she was cute in a geeky sincere way.  She's the smartest girl in the group, but the exams are hard.  Ganbatte!

Ogawa because she had lots of energy and charisma.  I always thought that she would be a fantastic girl to go clubbing with.

I second that (and not just because you seem to have a hatred for Risa), but really... what is the point in being so rude about certain members? I understand that everyone has their own opinion about who they like/dislike, but I think Ogawa has a real chance to make it “in the real world” and I wish her and konno all the best! :)

Yep...I'll miss those girls too! Sort of like the children leaving the nest type feeling.
 
If H!P don't take them back if their plans fail, I'll take them.

Actually I kind of think that Konkon probably wouldn't sit for this year's exams, I really doubt she had the time to regularly attend tutorials or do mock exams during this time. Having only one month to study for university entrance exams is probably too much for her...especially if she is trying for a couple.

And I don't think it's a bad idea if she chooses to be a 'ronin' for a year, just to get more acclimatised to be a normal person again, instead of an idol/celebrity. I agree that she's not the genius type, but she's definitely the type that's willing to study and I'm sure she'll manage to get into it (though probably not some of the top ones).

Actually it says on the H!P site that she will take the entrance exam in August. Perhaps KonKon had studied earlier before (like from private tutor, home-school, etc.). Plus after she graduates there still some time left for extra study, so I believe she will try the exam later in August.

is anyone familiar with the japanese system? i think their semesters start in spring (around april), right? so does that mean she'll have half a year's break after her exam?

Man, right after Konno became my 2nd favorite of MM members... Anyway, I'm proud of both of them and hope Konno will get into a good university!

Like they would be dying... That's something you can say in a funeral. xD

This is the first graduation I'm going trough so I feel a bit confused. O_o
I'll miss them both but it's great to know they're caring about their education. :)
Ogawa would have been a great actor, from the few skits in which I've seen her acting...

Will a forum member attend the graduations? One or another, it'd be interesting to have a report for the forums and Ikimasshoi News :)

Entrance exam maybe. But graduating's not all that hard. It's like any other uni from then on.

I already knew about this, and I'm still sad. Konno was one of my Top3 Musumes, and I really really digged ogawa, she was so funny.
I just think this is sad, I don't really think Tsunku will choose the right girls to 'replace' them, and even if he did, I'm just going to miss them.
What makes this 'harder' is that I really really wasn't prepared to see them leave (actually I was expecting Takahashi to graduate), so yeah. shocker.
