Good evening everyone!!
Thank you for all the likes and comments on my last blog!
I believe that everyone knows this already,
but Shimamura Uta-chan withdrew from Country Girls and Hello! Project yesterday.
It was very sudden, so I’m sure everyone was really surprised by this.
But, so was I.
I’ve been with Uta ever since the 2nd 12th generation auditions for Morning Musume,and when we were both put in County Girls together I was really happy,
Let’s do our best together!!
But when our activities officially started, there was a lot of things we had to remember, we had to be prepared for lessons, and review,
and since Uta and I had no experience with dancing or singing, we were a bit slower than the other members at memorization.
But with all the rehearsals, gradually we were able to figure out how to become better at learning faster.
And then when we began our release events, and got better and better at doing MC’s, it finally felt like we were members of Country Girls.
And at same time we experienced things that were difficult, and the other members were always there to support me, but Uta was the one I confided in the most since we were closest in age.
So I kept thinking how great it would be to continue with these members for many years.
But, all of sudden this was announced and I feel so lonely because Uta being here had become so natural to me.
I keep thinking, I’ll see her tomorrow, we can talk a lot, and have a lot of fun together!
But what was once so natural has now gone away.
I can’t accept that reality right now…。
Because I still can’t believe it…。
I feel so lonely, and sad, I want to see her, I want to talk a bunch with her, I want to play around together, and have fun.
I have a lot of feelings towards Uta.
But, even though I’m feeling very lonely, I don’t have time to be down,
I know that the road ahead isn’t just full of fun things,
but holds difficult and painful times ahead, Momochi-senpai said that too,
and there will be times when I’ve had enough and feel down.
But Ozeki of Country Girls is the most energetic member and can overcome anything,
I’ve realized that I have to be positive about this!
From now on we will continue activities with just the 5 of us! Even if we’re missing a member, Country Girls will still continue to be fresh and full of energy!
I know everyone must be worried that Uta is gone, but I will work my very hardest to make you think that the 5 member Country Girls is great!
I’m sorry for all the worrying that was caused.
Please continue to support the 5 person Country Girls from now on!
Uta. Yesterday our time in Country Girls together ended, but I will never forget the time that we spent together.
From now on, we aren’t members of the same group anymore, but best friends.
I’ll love you, forever.
