I had another post ready for something else but that can wait. Tanaka Reina is graduating from Morning Musume!
Another Yossi and Platinum Era member is leaving. Honestly, was I the only one who was not shocked? She was never one of my favourites but we should have been prepared for this when the band auditions were announced. Man, the H!P fandom seem to be taking a loss out of this.
From my opinion and not anyone elses, it was going to happen soon. It’s good to see her leave but also stay in music because that’s what Reina is good at. Like I said above, she was never one of my favourites in the 6 years I’ve been in a Morning Musume fan but I wish her the best of luck. She was a part of the lineup that I got into Morning Musume with Yossie as the leader back in late 2006 and it’s really sad to see after so many years that after her, Sayumi will be the last one and then Morning Musume I used to know back then will be completely different. No wonder the concert was named after Michishige, it’s probably more of a focus on her and the new generations.
It will give more focus to Riho and Sakura more but I want the others girls to sing just as much especially Mizuki, Masaki and Haruka who seem to be improving.
Loads of people seem to be in a loss but don’t worry guys! It’s not as if Reina is disappearing from the music scene forever (I wish Niigaki was still singing more), she’s just not going to be in H!P. So for all the Reina fans who are upset about her leaving, do not worry. You can still support her in this new band. I’m quite excited for this band because it will draw attention and plus they have 93′ liners in it! Marin, Yuki and Marina all look appealing and match up to Reina’s style so I have a good feeling about them.
There is a chance to name reina’s band name if you read more on this link. You have to email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to vote for what her band name should be. Just enter your name, age, gender and (what I did) put in the band’s name below. I suggested Everess.
What do you think about the band? Will you enter a band name for them to use?
