Quote from: Asami's comments
With the 2007 New Year's Hello! Project concert, I will graduate from Country Musume and Hello! Project.
After this, in order to fulfill my dream of working with animals, I will be working hard and studying a lot.
In my middle school days, when I was going to the farm to have Mr. Yoshitake teach me about "dog sledding", and I while I was being taught to care for and train the dogs, I started to feel that "I want to do this kind of work someday too!". In the future, I have a dream of wanting to have my own shop, but in the meantime, I'll be working on the studying.

It's been 6 years since I entered into Hello! Project, and it's gone in the blink of an eye.
Every day was fresh, and they were days where I learned.
Of course, there were many hard and painful times.
But... I think that I'm where I am today because of the staff who helped me grow, and the fans who cheered me on.
Thank you very much.
I'm really thankful for the fans!
When there's an event, the fans come to cheer me on, and at my 20th birthday live, everyone said "Congratulations!"... they also cheer me on a lot when there's a Futsal match, and when I score a goal, everyone becomes one in being happy for me...
AND!!! During Country Musume's first solo live, the whole group was happily cheering us on, saying "Congratulations on your first solo live! That's great!", and I haven't forgotten that even now.
Thank you very much.

When I was deciding to graduate, I decided it by thinking "I'm going into a different world, but surely everyone will cheer me on..."
I think "I want to make my old dream a reality! I don't want to have regrets!"
I'm sorry for being so selfish...
But, I want to do everything I possibly can.

Also, this will be a new start on my life, but I'm going to do my best to overcome the hard times and believe in myself.
Until I graduate, I'll be doing my best with all my strength, so everyone, please be good to me until the very end.

Country Musume's Asami


Quote from: Miuna's comments

I have decided to graduate Country Musume & H!P at the 2007/1/28 concert.
It's been about 3 and a half years since my debut, and I've been working as a Country Musume member, and sometimes I've run into a wall and had times where I've been troubled.
But, within that, I've been able to have huge emotional experiences many times.
In these 3 and a half years, I've been able to get so many things I haven't had until now.
All of them have let me feel like I'm in a dream.
The one who let me have such a precious experience was the producer, Tsunku.
The staff who created such a wonderful environment.
Asami & Miuna, always gently keeping us together.
And, the fans who cheered me on during anything.
I truly feel that because of everyone that I was able to do what I've done these 3 and a half years.
Thank you all very much.

After I graduate, I want to take on a job that I've had an interest in for a while.
While I feel lonely about this, because it's something I've decided, I feel no regret.
I want to be able to take the excitement and feeling that I've gotten through my activities with Country Musume and take them down a new road and share them with a lot of other people! That's my goal after this.
It's selfish of me, but please watch over me somehow.
In order for it to be a fantastic graduation ceremony on 1/28, I'll be spending each day as though it is precious.
Please be good to Country Musume from here on.

Country Musume's Miuna

They needed a theme for the 10th anniversary anyway.

But the final bomb hasnt been dropped yet huh, i'm not surprised by these news XD I'm expecting bigger news when the concert draw nearer.

BUT i really loved country's music and the girls, they partially form the backbone of Gatas, it was a blessing that at least Mai-chin stayed. Though her future in H!P was never in doubt looking at how they have been promoting her these few months to raise people's awareness of her.

Always sad to hear girls leaving. But if this doesn't mean a Mai/Ayaka unit, I'll be annoyed.

Damn, now that's a birthday gift *is turning 21 on January 28th*

Well, we've heard about Asami for some time now, but Miuna ... it seems so soon. It feels like she just joined :(

GOOD LUCK MIUNA AND ASAMI!

I can count with one hand fingers the songs I liked for them. Musically they did not catch my attention, but as musicans they did. Miuna is a cuttie and I was so happy to see her in H!P, and Asami kicks ass, imo. I hope the best on their new efforts, a wise decision seeing H!P nowadays.

It's a pity for Mai, though. She was my fav and she's so hot. Because Ayaka is hot as well, they should go together in a new project. It seems the "Musume" surname did not bring luck to them. Time to think of something to retain their talent, because they have it.

I never paid much attention to CM, but when I did notice them, they were great. First time I saw them was those Hokkaido Hello Mornings with Asami and Rinne Toda. Asami was so adorable. :cry:

Fuck, poor Tyler must be having a fit. :o

Quote from: tama-chan;242671
Now no more Country, no more Coconuts. Just put Satoda and Ayaka in the same group and come up with a new name already.
Quote from: Shaoran;242687
Isn't this part of that rumor? It was Country BEST, these two graduating, and Ayaka and Satoda pairing up together? And, aren't they best friends with Yossie? And isn't Yossie too pressured in Morning Musume? It's the time, it's the time... I am sure this reunion / anniversary will have more surprises :p
The way I remember the rumour, it said that Asami was leaving, and that Miuna and Satoda were going to form a new group with Ayaka.


Quote from: Yasu;242716
Anyway, I wonder what they're going to do with Gatas. So many girls "leaving" the team behind...
That's true...what the hell is Gatas gonna do? The girls that stay are going to get stuck having to play an entire game due to the lack of extra players. Physically, that's definitely going to take it's toll on them (the remaining players).  God I hope this doesn't spell the end for Gatas too. :cry:


*reads the translations of their messages

So Miuna's already got a future/prospective job/career in a field that she's in terested in? Smart move on her part. Can't help but wonder what it is.  Asami's move to work with animals makes sense. Remember those pics/vids taken in Hokkaido where she was milking the cows and doing the farm stuff? She seemed really comfortable there, like it was a natural fit for her.

At any rate, it's a bit early as they haven't actually graduated yet, but best of luck to them both.

JPH!P :heart:'s Fushigidane, ChrNo, Jab & marimari. Always.

So, Country Coconuts it is then! :-)

CM was probably my favorite hp group, both for its varying members and the songs they were given.

Tsunku has a way of starting up some really good promising stuff and then forgetting about it. Cuntry deserved more of a workout and should have been spread around a lot more over the years.
