Kudo Haruka graduated from from Morning Musume. '17 and H!P (12/11)

Postby Amped » Sat Apr 29, 2017 6:04 pm

Annnounced today at the MM concert in Kyoto, Kudo Haruka will graduate c at the end of the Fall concert tour 2017. She has decided to aim to be an actress after graduation. She says she had thought of trying to balance being in Morning Musume and becoming an actress, but she has made the decision on graduation so it wouldn't be bothersome to the members and fans.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

She's only 17. She totally could've stayed around at least another year. This sucks but I wish her the best and hope she'll succeed.

I'm so sad. 10ki is so gold. :(

Eff that. 10th gen was supposed to stay together till they all graduated at the same time on Harunan's 28th birthday.

Seriously though, I don't want my precious 10th Gen to split :( . Why Duu why?

Whoa, this is unexpected. I hope UF is ready to do some pushing since she's one of the more popular members.

Also a prayer to the idol gods for one year with no lineup changes. Just one. Not forever, just one.

Concerning Haruka Kudo

Thank you for your continued support towards Hello! Project and Morning Musume。'17.
Haruka Kudo will, at the Autumn Tour, graduate from Morning Musume。'17 and Hello! Project.
During the activities as a Hello! Pro Kenshusei, and Morning Musume。, she realized the charms of acting and that it was enjoyable, and by understanding it was difficult, she naturally made the request of "I want to devote myself to acting".
By thinking of the balance of work with the activities of Morning Musume。, she was worried but by becoming 18 years this year, we understood her strong decision of devoting herself with all her might and challenging herself.
This is not at all a smooth road, and she decided the graduation more than the resignation.
We hope to support her as much as possible after the graduation.
From now on regarding the schedule, it will be reported as soon as it will be decided.
First of all, the current Spring Tour will continue, as well as the play (Engeki Joshibu) in June and the Tour Final at the Nippon Budokan on June 23rd.
Haruka Kudo will continue to devote herself so please continue to support her as well as Morning Musume。'17.
UP-FRONT PROMOTION
Representative Director Takeshi Nishiguchi


I, Haruka Kudo,
After the Autumn tour,
Will graduate from Morning Musume。 as well as from Hello! Project.
It has been 6 years since I became a member of Morning Musume。
It has been 8 years since I get into Hello! Project.
During this time, I had lots of experiences,
Thanks to lots of people,
I grew up to this level since I was a common and audacious primary school student.
And because I became a normal high shcool student for a little while,
I began to wonder "What do I want to do in the future now that my dream of Morning Musume。 became true?"
My answer came out quite early.
Or, I think I already had it.
I want to try the genre I found here in my career, "acting".
I don't want to do things halfway,
So even by saying "I want to act", by singing and dancing as an idol as well,
I somehow thought it was disrespectful to the members and to the fans to say I do both things.
I told this feeling to the company and to my parents,
I thought a lot,
"I want to bet on what I want to do" and then decided to graduate.
During the remaining time,
I want to create many memories with the members and all the fans,
I want to be able to say "See you again!" without any regret at the end.
Please support me until the end.
Morning Musume。'17 Haruka Kudo

I'm happy she's pursuing to be an actress. Currently the best at it and has a more mainstream face. I can see her image turn from idol to actress. Good luck to her.

Wow, I wasn't expecting that. (I have an AI on my phone that speaks to me, and I set Morning Musume as a keyword a long time ago and it just starting talking and saying "It seems like Kudou Haruka is graduating). I thought I'd misheard until I hopped on here.

The actress thing is less surprising and actually, since she's decided to do this younger rather than older, I'd guess that she's planning to try and get into TV rather than stage plays. More like a Mano than a Maasa.

10th Gen breaking up is an interesting feeling. One one hand it feels right to have the older gens not "whole" it really hammers in that they're the true seniors now in the group, but as they were such a tight nit group it's also really sad.

Sometimes I have to read these graduation announcements a couple of times for it to sink in. The sentences are comprised of perfectly ordinary words. The meanings are clear. But yet it doesn't quite register in my brain. For that first moment it might as well be "Morning Musume. '17 Kudo Haruka to genuflect as MM'17 Tall Flower"

I wish you well, tall flower... :notworthy:

She's my favorite in MM, but I also want her to do what she wants to do. I wonder if she has specific roles in mind. Normally they give more of a heads up than this before their grad dates, right?

The gasp I let out when I read it. I've been checking Jplop every day because I've sadly been expecting someone but been terrified of who would go before Harunan (I just knew she wouldn't do as everyone expected and go next because she's "old"). I felt like they were all happy in MM but Haruka going for acting makes sense. Fans along with half of HP girls gonna mourn... Maybe she also felt she could reliably pass the ikemen torch since we have Kaede now :(
...is a little later on...

This was unexpected. Would have been nice to have at least one year without any Graduations. This is a bummer either way. All the best to her with acting career. I'll still love her regardless of what she does next, as she's always been such a fun character.

Hope Maachan is still well and doesn't need to graduate anytime soon.

On a side note, whatever happened to that battle for ownership of Duu between Maachan and Daishi years ago?

She was my favorite of the 10th gen. Surprised she's the first to go. Wanted to see her eventually take over, but I guess she wants to be an actress more I respect that. I wonder if she has something in mind already lined up? I wonder if she'll stay in Up-front? It always hurts when they leave the entire company. (Hi, Meimi.)
