Mitsui Aika to graduate from Morning Musume
On May 4th, Morning Musume's member Mitsui Aika announced that she will graduate from Morning Musume on May 18th through her official blog.
Last May, Mitsui was diagnosed with a stress fracture on her left anklebone, which would take around 8 weeks to heal completely. After that, she had been doing rehabilitation, but she couldn't join Morning Musume's performance with full force.
She shared "I have been thinking that I could heal completely someday and return to Morning Musume's activities 100%. However, I received the diagnosis that the stress fracture might happen again, and I've been worried about it. I discussed with my mother as well. Even with my ambition for Morning Musume still unfulfilled, due to not make fans, members and staffs worried about my condition, I asked graduation as soon as possible."
Also it seems she is planing to keep her entertainment activities, and commented, "I would like to decide after discussing with Tsunku?-san and staff that if I can do some activities in Hello! Project after graduation."
On May 18th in Nippon Budokan, she will be in the concert 'Morning Musume Concert Tour 2012 Haru ~Ultra Smart~Niigaki Risa Sotsugyo Special' and will graduate with Niigaki Risa.
