I think people who watched Hello!Sta already know, but first generation member Fukuda Kanon-san has announced her graduation from ANGERME and Hello!Project.
The decision to graduate is definitely not an easy one, and I think she thought long and hard about it! before coming to this conclusion!
I’m also in her position as a member of an idol group, so I think the decision has to come from considering both the group and yourself, but it’s about wanting to spend your time, your only time, the way you choose, in ways that you couldn’t before you graduated!
I think Fukuda-san, being a first generation member, had a lot of things running through her mind. I think she had a lot of thoughts that I wouldn’t understand even if she told me!
But I will work even harder to keep the group moving forward, just as the two first generation members gave as their reason for adding new members and changing the group name.
Even so, I want to treasure our time spent as 9 until the fall!
I hope that you all will not turn away from ANGERME and will continue supporting us.
I would be so happy!
I hope lots of people will come to Budokan.
