Like most of us, I’d already made my peace with Gaki’s graduation a while ago. Actually, I was pretty much immediately okay with it after hearing she’d originally planned to leave with Ai-chan.
Aika’s announcement stunned me though! I understand the circumstances and it really is for the best - she isn’t one of my favourites, but I still thought she was incredibly cute and was expecting her to become leader after Reina and Sayu graduate and really shine…
Well, since she’s staying in h!p I’m sure we’ll still see her around, even if only as a concert MC.
So anyway, I’m not great with words, and I only really got into Morning Musume about a year ago after years of convincing by my best friend Iggie… so instead I just drew something.
Gaki, Aika, it’s not much but I hope you can both graduate with a smile :)
