---

the Spring 2013 concert tour will start on 3/16 and end in May

it will be called Morning Musume. Spring Concert Tour 2013 ~Michishige☆Eleven SOUL ~Tanaka Reina Sotsugyou Special~


Upfront link translated the 2 statements

Announcement concerning Reina Tanaka

First of all, thank you for your continued support for Morning Musume。.

Here is an announcement about Reina Tanaka.



Reina Tanaka has been a Morning Musume。 member for 9 years and 10 months since January 2003 and she will graduate from Morning Musume。 as well as from Hello! Project after the final live of the “Morning Musume。Concert Tour 2013 Spring Michishige☆Eleven SOUL ~Tanaka Reina Special Commemoration Graduation”.



We can easily say that she is one of the top three voices in the history of Morning Musume。and she will now be part of a band.



I thought it was a good timing for her to graduate since she will now continue her activities in this band.



Now that Reina became an adult, knowing better what she wants to do, her style, I think she can use her experience from Hello! Project for the band and her solo works.



Some years ago I have discussed with her about how the things will become after her graduation, and I am sure her competitive spirit will help her become an even more cool "Reina".



Everybody, please support "Reina Tanaka" as solo and also "Reina Tanaka" as the member of the band.

Reina Tanaka Official Comment

First thank you for your continued support.

It has been decided that, I, Reina Tanaka, will graduate from Morning Musume。、as well as from Hello! Project at the end of next spring’s tour!

I have announced my graduation today on the stage in front of the fans and I introduced as well the 3 members of the band, I will now take off to a new stage!

I have been a 6th generation member of Morning Musume。 for almost 10 years and this year the group is celebrating its 15th anniversary. I think this is a turning point, a challenge for me to try another music activity, with the start of this band.

There is around 6 months left until I will be a Morning Musume。 member, with the January Hello! Project lives in January and the next tour.

So please support the Reina Tanaka's member of Morning Musume。 which will sing in front of you and for my following activities as well!

I hope this is what she wanted and she wasn't forced into having to be in a new band just to get a paycheck :/

I wonder why they made such a big deal out of her staying the MM while she was in the new band if they were just going to not only graduate her from MM, but even from H!P. Seems kinda weird. >_>

6 months? So she'll probably be around for at least two more MM releases.

The people saying it was Sayu was overreacting to a leaked "possible" concert tour title XD
Reina's band announcement and graduation was just announced at today's concert from the live reports on 2ch. Not confirmed yet on any official websites but it has the ring of truth to it sadly ....

Nayoko-Kihara wrote:6 months? So she'll probably be around for at least two more MM releases.

Ultra Smart Spring Tour last concert was 05/18 at Nippon Budokan, Tokyo.
I'm really looking forward to her last singles in MM now >.< , don't disappoint Tsunku!

if i squint hard enough her band mates look hot. but overall a weak attempt at mimicking scandal loll

now that i think about it im not worried about me missing Reina more so that Im worried about how MM will suffice Post-Grad.
