jesus, this is weird news to wake up to. ono erena is to graduate this summer, to study overseas and pursue an acting career. an original member of team k, i always considered her to be indispensable to akb and assumed she would continue to be there for some time.
there are advantages and reasons for graduating young if you have a passion to pursue something else so it’s easy to respect her decision; i’m just going to be selfish for a while and lament this.
it was right when she changed her hair too, i should have seen this coming. sigh.
