Earlier this week ANGERME member, Fukuda Kanon, has announced that she will be graduating from ANGERME and Hello Project on November 29th, 2015.
Kanon has announced this on Hello Pro Station and on stage during their Nippon Budokan concert the following day. She stated that she would continue university after her graduation and then hopes to become a songwriter after school.
Honestly, I expected this announcement a lot sooner. Kanon seemed to lose her smile and enthusiasm while performing on stage. It was evident that she was not enjoying her life as an idol anymore. Also, with the addition of a 3rd generation to ANGERME, I predicted that both Ayaka’s and Kanon’s graduation was imminent. Therefore, I am not completely upset that she will be leaving, but I am sure that I will be crying by the buckets during her graduation ceremony.
I wish Fukuda Kanon all the best and I really hope that her dream of being a songwriter comes true. She should hold on to to her last few days in ANGERME with her fellow members and her fans.
As previously mentioned, Fukuda Kanon will be graduating on November 29, 2015 in Nippon Budokan during ANGERME’s fall tour.
